Rossi 62 jamming



Log in to see fewer ads
Just obtained a used Rossi 62 carbine for my son to match the one I have. It's in great shape but is jamming. It feeds the cartridge too high to feed smoothly into the chamber. The bullet gets cut and jammed, then you have to pop the carrier down with your thumb to free it.
Can anyone help me to solve this issue?

Thanks!

WWeldman,

As silly as this sounds, I'll ask anyway: Are you using the correct ammunition? SOME of those Model 62 rifles are labeled for ".22LR" only. That specific variation has no cartridge cutoff, and it can cause all sorts of feeding & jamming problems, if you do not exclusively use the Long Rifle rounds.

Hope you get this figured out. These rifles are so simple and so much fun.

Yeah this one is labeled s.l, and lr and I have tried 3 different kinds of lr but they'll all jam. You can see the carrier positioning the round a hair too high. The bullet jams when trying to feed into the chamber. You can "click" the carrier down a hair with your thumb and it will line up properly. Just had it apart again and can't figure out where the problem is. I've had a few of these 62's and this is the first one I've had difficulty with.

Perhaps a stupid question, but is it clean, clean, clean?

Pristine. First thing I did was scour and lube everything.

My son and I hit a slight burr on the back of the carrier with some emery cloth and it seems to move more freely when reassembled now. Won't know if that cured it until we send some live rounds through it again. Got my fingers crossed though.

Red Green here. Put a little strip of duct tape on the back of the carrier where it contacts the frame. This will keep the carrier from rising too high which seems to be the cause of the jamming.

Obviously a brass shim would be better but try the tape to see if it works.
