So I recently got a PTR91, when measuring the bolt gap, it is ever so slightly uneven. 0.01-0.02mm? The feeler gauge will rest snugly between .35 and .40. The .40 will not fit on both sides. Could this be due to it not being broken in? Am I being autistic over nothing? Also did I fuck up by not buying the railed variant?
Recently started a new job which involves me being on a dock or boats and /out/ in sun, rain or snow. The area I work in has a reputation for bears as well as trouble with two legged predators. I currently only own a few .22 rifles and an old .410. Done some reading up online and spoke to a co-worker and they recommended the 500 series of guns, so far the 590 mariner looks like the best gun for the job but some guys in the reviews I read did talk about the chambers being rough and unfinished where Mossberg hadnt sanded down the Marinecote finish they used. Anyone on /k/ had any bad, or good, experiences with the Mariner? Especially with sticky shells in the chamber and ejection problems? I dont want to buy something which potentially might need to save my life one day and not work.
