What would cause a m75 sporting to have barrel / stock movement, noticeable upon picking up and swinging gun…and if holding forearm, and applying a bit of pressure to side of barrel causing noticeable clicking/movement…

i recently had a cabelas m75 sporting shipped out to a Bass pro and upon inspection found a 85% gun, 1952′ DOM, but bolt not etched with serial number and the feeling of barrel movement …concerns me.

 

thoughts appreciated?  pics may still be on cabelas fine gun room west viriginia.

My guess would be a loose barreled action?  I do not have any experience with this model. What tightens the barreled action to the stock?

One rcvr screw in front of mag.  Don’t think bolts were serialized, but could be wrong.

Could be the wrong screw. Bolts on mine have the serial numbers etched on the underside. I thought they quit shipping guns between stores like that.

My 75 sporter has the serial number (50127) etched on the underside right flat of the bolt. It is faint. So, looking at it with a good magnifying glass and light is necessary to read it. DOM is 1946.

Send it back. Bolts were electropenciled with the serial number and the action should be tight. Get your $$$ back then run like he!! from it.  Big Larry
