Mossberg model 51m 22 Rifle jamming

I have a older Mossberg model 51m 22 rifle that after a few rounds it will jam.

The gun has been cleaned and is in good shape overall.

I was thinking it could be the main spring part 50-31from the Parts list. Any other ideas?

The barrel has these markings
O.F MOSSBERG & SONS INC
NEW HAVEN CONN USA
51M@ 22 LR ONLY PAT PEND

Does anyone know where I can get parts for this gun?


Thnx

Marty

have you tried different types of ammo?

That one has the tube magazine that comes through the buttstock right?

No I have not. I been using Winchester 22 Long Rifle 36 Grain 1280 FPS which are high speed.

The instruction manual states the following:
Use nothing but .22 LONG RIFLE High Speed or Regular cartridges, either dry or lubricated. DO NOT attempt to use shorts or longs.

I will go out and buy a different brand and give it a go.

Thnx

I have several .22's Lever, semi-auto etc.. Some of the tend to take a crap with one brand or another.

Sometimes it's the shape of the bullet, or the coating..

So ya, try a few brands. If the problem is consistant, then it's time to get the gun checked out.

Agreed. It's funny how some guns just prefer certain ammo..

Yup. Not sure about that rifle, but the semi-auto 22LR handguns can be pretty finicky. Basically, if you're using a bulk pack (don't care about brand), they don't seem to like them. But a more premium line tends to work better...
