The bolt jammed 1/2 way open on my 511. I thought I'd take it apart to see if I could find the cause. Now I can't put it back together in functioning order even though I have a exploded diagram of the gun.

Anyway, I'm looking for recommendations for a reputable shop to re-assemble, as well as give the gun a good once over.
The gun was given to me by my father-in-law, so I really want to have it repaired.

Any recommendations would be appreciated!

Thank You!

First, I'd like to thank everybody. This site has been a great help!

I reassemble the gun, bolt slid into place nicely, it went "click" when I pulled the trigger, But the bolt will only back up about 1/2 inch. It appears to be catching on the ejector (part 18 of the exploded view). I have to "nudge" the ejector to get the bolt back into the gun when I'm reinserting it into the gun. I've disassembled and reassembled several times with the same result. It can only go in one way, so I don't think I'm putting it in wrong. the extractors are moving freely, so I don't believe anything in the bolt is frozen. Any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Could the extractor be bent?

Bend the ejector slightly to get it out of the way. You dont even have to disassemble to get it done. Just tap it one way or pry it the other.
I tried that, nearly snapped it in half, now it needs to be replaced. Time to see the gunsmith.

Side note: where can I buy parts for this?

Finally got the rifle repaired (W00T!). Turns out it was the ejector. A special thanks to Ralfus for the ejector, and Nobody for the service manual. I'd would have shelled out to a gunsmith without you guys.


Thanks Again!
