again. The 597 just went through a good cleaning and I noticed the ejector was rubbing on the bolt. I'll fix that and out came a pair of pliers to "adjust" it. Yeah right. Snap. Midway USA comes through again. Stupid, Stupid, Stupid.

Don't beat yourself up

Experience is just doing things wrong often enough to know how to do them right. We all pay for our lessons

I've tried to bend mine a smidge for the same reason. Its a very rigid, sturdy, part and hard to correct.

The part comes today so let's hope dumb isn't followed by dumber and I break it somehow. I used to work on the RR. They had a saying. Give him a glass hammer and a rail. He'd break the rail. I seemed to hear that behind my back fairly often.

If the new one rubs significantly take a smidge off the side of the ejector to satisfy the need to tinker? However keep in mind its sturdy for a reason.

Well nice that Uncle Larry could bail you out and provide the part.

I get kind of tense when a rifle isn't 100% functional. Don't know what phobia to call it?

We have already done most of the same things so maybe 5 minutes would be enough to cover the new things!

Has anyone done this? Hot August evening at Leesville Lake Ohio. Fishing in the boat with a flyrod and surface poppers catching 'gills and bass wearing shorts and nothing else. Decided it would be a great idea to see if a bat would hit a popper. It did and now a whole new feel to my rod. There mister dimbuld is with a bat flying all around and no real plan on how to release it from the hook.
