Wsm trouble



Log in to see fewer ads
I understand that these bmags work differently than most bolt actions. It is my understanding that once fired it can not be placed on safety and then fired again. With mine however it must always be left in the firing position even when loading the 1st round or it wont fire. This just doesn't seem right. What is the point of having a safety if you cant use it? I have sent the rifle back to savage twice. Is their something I'm missing?

When you sent it in to Savage , what did they say?

My thought is I think most rifles need to be clocked to be placed on safe and place on fire to open the bolt. Not on all but quite a few.

It can be cocked and loaded in the safe or fire position, but mine will only fire if cocked and left in the fire position

Probably one of the biggest flaws in an otherwise fine shooting rifle (and yes I own one). You wonder what some of these gun companies are thinking when they design a gun that is less safe to use.

Ditto.

Being able to pull a bolt back with the safety on for loading and closing the bolt with a round now in the chamber and the bolt cocked and ready to rock isn't, hasn't been, a standard feature of your average rifle IME either.

I have a heavy barrel stainless B Mag also that is a pos. The thing has shown me i like the cartridge but absolutly hate the rifle. I am sure i could replace the trigger but it would still cock on closing.

What difference does it make if it cocks at open or at close? The bolt has to make the same cycle to fire regardless. I personally don't notice or care. For a cheap rifle, it shoots great.

I'm use to it by now and it doesn't bug me a bit while I'm using either of my Bmags...

I like your way of thinking! Both of mine shoot very well after a few little touches... Plus, I really like the little 17 wsm round!!!!!!!
