This one is RS 504 and has the Jewell trigger.
I have won quite a few rimfire tactical matches with this one.

Not Sam but is the firing pin free? Just wondering if it had crud or was unable to move rearward after hammer strike.

Does it have a Jewell trigger or standard. Perhaps if a Jewell it has some crud or out of adjustment and the hammer is following the bolt forward and not engaging trigger sear.

Just a couple of ideas.

Spoke with Ron Herbertson on the phone today. He gave me a very good education on the custom built rifles he and Sam built.

Not for sure if it has the jewell trigger or not, it belongs to a friend, said it has been that way since he got it. I was wrong about the model it is a CSHEll with the mcmillen stock. I have only fired it one time and I thought it shot great. I am trying to buy it from him ?

10 shots at 50 yards. Bipod and rear bag. It has potential...

IIRC my brothers with a Jewell trigger would double and triple occassionally after he adjusted the Jewell trigger, after readjustment it was ok. Said he had it a bit to lite??? Also another IIRC that was one of the reasons Arnold Jewell quit production of the 10/22 trigger about same time as his son took over??? It had some design/liability issues, he didn't want to redesign another nor did his son from what I was told?? Cannot remember my source of this conversation for the life of me though??? It was only made a few yrs and was $200ish retail when new which was a considerable price tag in the later 90's for a 22 trigger.

Just throwing out more questions than answers. LOL

Respectfully,
Dennis

I wonder if the ammo he is shooting in it is not seating all the way in the chamber and it is firing that way? I don't think he has shot any real good target ammo in it. So did the CSHEll have a tighter match chamber or regular chamber?

I thought these all came with the Jewell trigger. Either they didn't, or someone swapped it out. I think the AMT is an excellent rifle. I have had two of them. But for some reason it just seems to me that this one is going overly high with all the options out there nowadays to build something of similar quality. When these things were made there were no aftermarket receivers, barrels, or much of anything out there.

IIRC correctly the Jewell was about a $200 option? Would need to see brothers build sheet to verify as he ordered his new and mine was purchased lightly used. He is here now for Christmas so that info is currently unobtainable

wish i could find a few of these to have around when i want accurate shooting just because they are different.

i know that today we can build them ourselfs but having one or two of the 500 or so that were made would be nice.
just expensive like the last one that was auctioned off at $2500 and change
