"What the hell is wrong with this gun?"

I played with the K-20 after UPS came by today, and for the life of me I can't get it to duplicate the fault it showed yesterday. Cocking and ejection of both barrels is perfect when performed dry.

Hoping that the problem lay in dirty cocking ram channels, I removed the stock and doused the action with PB Blaster. Then I blew the gun "dry" with shop air. Lots of black stuff came out, but it didn't look like enough gunk to stiffen up the gun. Then I gave the internals a light coat of Militec and reassembled everything. The weapon is a little smoother now than it was before, but I don't think it was the cocking rams being stuck in their channels.

As far as I can tell, the internals are in perfect operating condition.

I tried to hit Sharpshooter tonight to test-fire the K-20 but Sharpshooter is closed today. So I'll try to go tomorrow.

This is pissing me off.
