    I was looking at a 2012 model 1895 SBL and it has the same fucking problems. Looks like Remlins’ still have gremlins that need sorting out. I also could not believe how stiff the action was and how heavy the trigger was. Boycott Remlins for a couple of years and they should be okay by then. They can train their own crew on their dime not mine.

    I have a 30-30 rio grande and I took it to the firing range and it jamed up a couple of times. But i had to wiggle the lever and then the fired shell came out but the 10th time the fired shell didnt come out and the bolt was not budging. So i took it to the gun smith on range and said it ha an oval chamber. Is that bad.

    I’ve got 1 of these rifles but I’ve had no trouble with it at all. The one I bought actually has much better fit than the 1895 I bought about 10yrs ago. All and all I’m very satisfied with my xlr and I only paid $695 for it too!

    lol i just acquired the same exact model and tried to load a bullet directly in the chamber and it blocked at the exact same spot that it did for you. you are pretty clever to have tried another bolt but i still think it is not really a problem, only a small inconvenience that doesn’t really involve any tangible inconvenient. Thx for the video still and I’ll tell you if i find a way to load directly with the chamber with the stock bolt! P.S. oil your gun the action seems really harsh

    you are haveing a head space problem its normaly the ammo the gun most likely has the minmum head space and the ammo has max i have had that problem with many guns that are made with tight tolerances

    Ok I’m confused. Was it a brass sizing/tolerance issue? I’m curious to know b/c I really like this one & have been considering purchasing it in the near future.
