    I was giving her a good ol' clean because she has been shooting dirty ammo and starting to give me some jamming problems. I did a field strip and then took off the grips to clean them too. The problem was that a pin decided to fall out of the side when I took off the grip and then an internal peice fell out and it was all downhill from there. I decided to take on the complete break down, clean and lube project happily instead of whining. I completely broke her down, soaked, scrubbed and lubed to my hearts content. Put her back together after about 6 hours of trying to remember the correct order for everything to go in. I know its correct now, and I decided to try putting a mag in it.... all the way up and... hmm.. its stuck. super stuck! I pushed on the mag release and nothing didnt budge! The mag release seams to be stuck now. I had to do another complete breakdown of the gun. The mag release works only part of the time. I guess any 422 owners who would like to chime in would be AMAZING and for everyone else, please give me your .02 about how to fix it or maybe where to get a diagram. I have the diagram from the manual, but I'm just stuck now with a paperweight chambered in .22lr. Thanks guys! <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    They should have a schematic online, their catalog is great, I buy one every few years, they are probably 15$ by now but the last one I got was about 2 1/2-3 inches thick. Really good source for old out of production parts and old military stuff too. Bobs Gun Shop in Arkansas is good too, Sarco is good for military stuff, I used to work in a full service gun shop and these were the 3 main places we got parts from besides manufactures. Good luck and don't force anything. Sometimes it is best to give something a rest and hit it later. Digital pics are good too, I do this all the time when working on my motorcycle. Good luck.

    Hey, thanks for the responses! So far I broke it back down, and I realized that I did one thing wrong that I could fix. The trigger "bar" goes out of a plate when I thought it stayed on the inside of it. I manuvered it outside and under the safety switch which caused the gun to be able to load a mag correctly, now my problem is that it only "cocks" back once in a while, it will only "prime" the trigger every so often. This means it will load a bullet but the firing pin wont be ready to go! Any ideas?
