Why does my Remington Model 7400 not fire?

I was wondering if anyone could help me here. I have a remington model 7400 in 270 cal. It is very accurate but if you do not pull the extractor all the way back and let it come down hard it will not fire and when it fires and loads the next cartridge it will not fire to you pull the extractor back and release it. then it will fire.

Your bolt MUST reach it’s full rearward movement to engage the live round in the mag! Load your clip with 4 rounds and one in the chamber to cause full pressure and drag on bolt. Fire the rifle. If it did not eject the spent round, load a new round and “dent” the end of the gauge tape then clip another coil off and repeat the procedure.

Where is the extractor on a Remington Model 7400?

The extractor is located inside the boltface and has nothing to do with firing. It sounds like the bolt may not be going to the rear far enough to let the hammer set so the hammer follows the bolt back down. This is not a common problem that I have seen with these guns.

Are there any bolt Springs on the Remington 7400?

Hmmmmm………..I think you will find that there are not any “bolt springs” to be found in the 7400 save the firing pin spring. That is one of the major changes made between the 7400 and the 742. The 742 had 2 very small springs and plungers that operated the bolt lock which is thankfully missing from the 7400s.
