Genesis problem update 7/11/09
 
The hammer is not coming far enough forward when I pull the trigger. The primer does not get hit hard enough so it only fires sometimes. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks, Brad

Have you tried...

# a different brand of primer?
# backing out the breech plug just a little.. although make sure it's not enough that the cam will not close.
# double check that the gun is together properly. I had that happen once. Put thebarrel channel firmly into the receiver, hold that together and make sure the right locking lug bolts are used to hold it all together. The long one goes the furthest forward on the receiver.. the two shorter ones, one holds the front fore end on, and the other goes in the back of the receiver close to the trigger.
# check the position of the firing pin. When your remove that small Allen screw to take it out of the cam, if you do not line that firing pin up exactly when you put it back together, it will not fire the primer..

just some things to try and check. see if that does not fix your problem.

I guess the first thing I would look for is if the firing pin needs cleaning or the hammer spring. Lee

thanks for the tips. I didn't try a different primer but the times it didn't fire it wasn't dented as deep as the ones that did. Everything is put together right. Firing pin is lined up but was a little dirty. Just seems like the hammer wasn't hitting hard enough. Can't get it to do it now that I'm home. It happened the first shot of the morning and again torwards the end of the shooting session. Each time it misfired about 5 times in a row. I would order a new trigger assembly but can't find one online or even on the remington parts list on their site. Until I figure it out I won't take it hunting, thats for sure.

If the above doesn't work for you and you want a new trigger assembly you'll have to go through Traditions. They make the Genesis for Remington.

Is this a new gun or have you been using it ok for awhile?

I've had it since january but have only used it a few times because I was waiting to get a scope on it. It's one of those things where if I sent it in under warranty they would test it and probably see no problem. Then I'll be at the range and it will misfire. After the rebate it only cost 90 bucks so I'm not too concerned. I'll keep it as a range gun and buy something else for hunting. Between my rimfire rifles centerfire rifles, waterfowl, predator and turkey shotguns, crossbows, recurves, compounds I don't have the time or patience to do trial and error replacing parts on this gun.

I would try tweaking the hammer spring a little to give it some more tension.

That sucks... Had failure to fire and misfire issues with the last (and I mean LAST) Traditions gun I owned and just gave up and sold it. From my experience they will have little to no interest in helping you.

cayudad, I think you were on to something. One of the frame barrel screws is a little stripped out. Actually the threads where it screws into the barrel are stripped. It has always sat in there a little funny. I noticed when I first got it but didn't think much of it. Gonna see if remington can help me. For now I bought a cva wolf to keep me busy. Not exactly top of the line but I read a lot of good things about them. Seems pretty solid.
