Dumb question - Lever to release the bolt.. what is the other direction for?

Post by cafox on Wed Dec 26, 2012 7:18 pm

Ok, don't laugh at me too much.. the lever that releases the bolt when you push it forward.. what does it do when you push on the other end of it?

I assume it locks the bolt or something.. what is it's purpose and under what circumstances would you want to use it?

Thanks,
Chris

pull the lever back, press the "other way" on bolt release to lock the bolt back..reasons to lock bolt back...cleaning..clearing a jam...so you can later release the bolt and chamber a round.

Yep. That is to lock the bolt. I do it all the time when I load my Vector. I have had too many failures when I load a full mag. The catch doesnt seat properly and I think the mag is in, then when i go to shoot noting happens and the mag falls out haha.

So I make it a habit to never load a full mag on a closed bolt. Some ranges require bolts/action to stay open when not firing. That is another reason.

Ok, thanks for the info...

Solscud, I saw the video where your mag kept falling out.. looked frustrating.
