I think the bolt stop spring has broken on my gun.
The indications are that the gun will not eject cases/rounds as per usual, I lift the bolt with the case on the end of it, pull it back and it stops and the case does not move.
The bolt stop is floppy and lacks the normal spring preload.
I had the same problem on my A2 and that was replaced by a smith in a shop (Litts) in Wales, but that shop went bust and was taken over so I am not sure if the smith still works there. He charged me £2 to do it, which is cheap.
I need to have the gun for use so I want to fix this pretty quickly.
I am in the UK so I am not going to buy one from the States.
Any advise on how to replace the spring and any idea of the type of spring as well would be very useful.
I recall on the A2 the smith unscrewed two screws to remove the box covering the bolt stop and they were countersunk. I think I have to remove the stock as well?
I just shot a fox heading for my chickens and it had one cockerel had already been taken so I am quite pleased with this, assuming it is the only fox involved?
