Gas Ports Work



Log in to see fewer ads
I always wondered if those gas ports on CZ rifles work. They do.

This morning I fired a Winchester T22 in my Model 2 that must been at least double charged. There was a big explosion and smoke came squirting out the gas port holes. I don't mean billowed, either. It squirted under pressure.

The empty extracted and ejected okay. The bolt face and the magazine follower (the defective round was the last one in the magazine) were absolutely blackened. I took the bolt apart and the striker had a bit of sludge on it. The rifle was fine and worked okay for the rest of the shooting session. I cleaned everything off with solvent and cleaned the barrel when I got home.

No gas hit my face and other than getting a good scare I am in as good repair as the rifle.

I would definitely contact Winchester with the lot number. Usually when I've had a bad batch the manufacturer will send out a label to have the bad ammunition sent back and either reimburse or send a voucher for a new lot.

Sorry to hear that man, I'm not sure if it's the times or what but it used to be a 1:1 for new ammo... and that was only 2 years ago. That's BS if that's how it's going to be now when people purchase a bad lot.

Nah, this was almost 10yrs ago. I'm sure their customers relations are new and improved now.
