The only issue I have had with mine is a scope. I mounted a Vortex with 1Ē tube and the crosshairs would loosen. Changed to a 30mm tube and no issue. My trigger was a little creepy, but I sent it...

I no longer have the pics, but not a bad chamber. The rupture came out the edge of the rim, the one area not supported by the chamber. Not in front of the rim. Mostly just annoying as I always have...

As mentioned in previous posts, Iíve seen it happen in bolt guns so I knew it would happen in the A17 sooner or later. I agree a clean chamber helps, but does not solve issue. Iíve had them blow...

It is not just a clean chamber issue. I have seen blown magazines with the first magazine in a clean gun. I purchased a Volquartsen when they first came out. Never had a problem. Then all of a sudden...

Not just a clean chamber issue. It is the ammo. I've seen them go with a spotless chamber and of course dirty. 17 hmr is touchy ammo. That is why most quit making rifl s for them. Hi volume ground...
