Thanks chileRelleno, The ports are about a !/8 inch not ¼ inch, DA on me! I have a gas port on the left side right on what I would call the gas block and it slants down Looks like nothing has come out of it because when I swobbed it it was clean. What is that actually for, to release gas? I Can stick a pipe cleaner through both holes and see it in the barrel.
If I remember right, on these Sagas you have to heat the front and rear of the gas tube block to remove it, am I right?
Thanks for your help in this. These type guns get to me. I mostly work on bolt guns, changing barrels out and porting or threading and re-bluing. I do a lot of revolver work for people who do quick draw and horse riding, shooting. I took this in because he was a friend and he bought it from a pawn shop. got 4 long mags, 4 short mags, laser, red dot sight. He paid $1000.00 for it.
This thing shoots 3 inch mags real good and slugs, plus buckshot, all of them will eject properly. Thanks J. R.
