@Stevo777 I am also new to shooting and this is my first rifle. I put several M*Carbo accessories on mine before even shooting it. Very few of the accessories went on as smoothly as they did in the videos…lol. I figured it was just me since that’s what usually happens when I attempt to “fix” something.
However I experienced the same issue with the bolt not dropping when I disassembled my Sub 2000 and went to reassemble. Took me a while to figure it out. No where in the manual does it say to do this, so others in the forum may know something that will help both you and I in the future.
Anyhow, this is what I did… I stuck my finger in the chamber and pressed down on the hammer just enough and the bolt dropped into place. Sounds stupid, but it worked.
Once reassembled, the next day I took it to the range (also where I purchased it) and had their staff disassemble it and the same problem occurred. Then we used their display model, took the bolt out of that and tried it on my S2K and the same problem When they reassembled the display model, they too had this issue. Perhaps the bolt needs to be machined slightly. The gun functioned properly and I had a blast shooting it for the first time… about 150 rounds with no failures. By the way, before I shot it, I pulled the bolt out 3 more times and duplicated the problem, slightly pressed the hammer and it dropped into place. Was easier once I knew how to do it. Now hopefully someone here at M*Carbo Brotherhood knows something different and can offer advice.
My problem is that I still hadn’t put the muzzel brake accessory on and “attempted” that yesterday only to fail. And from what I’ve read about my issue, I may need a gunsmith to assist or send in for repairs.
