Savage 99 carrier adjustment
I recently bought a Savage 99 Takedown (1926) model in 250-Savage. The rifle is in great shape. The barrel appears to be permanently fixed in the receiver. No real diasppointment there. There are no signs of swaging or brazing but it does not just twist off. I have another 99 TD (1918) that is unaltererd but the barrel is a little loose. My problem with this most recently acquired one is the carrier is out of adjustment. The round counter indicator is off and it fails to feed properly. I read in a response from "Mad Dog" that he was familiar with and could send instructions on properly adjusting the carrier assembly. So, "Mad Dog" I would sincerely appreciate your assistance. I bought this 99 to be a hunter not a cabinet queen. I don't want to tear down my other rotary magazine 99 just figure this one out but I can possibly look at parts of the assembly. If there are any other readers that can hepl me, I would really appreciate it.
