Default Savage 24V problems

I have a 24V that was a .222 / 20 GA. I got it used and didn't fire it until after I Re-chambered it to .223 Wylde / 20 GA.

It may fire once or twice, then it won't unlock the barrels. It happens when i shoot .223 or the 20 GA, so I doubt it's related to the re-chambering.

Eventually, after messing with it a while, it will open. Anyone ever heard of this?

You need to be more specific:

Does the lever move, when it won't unlock?
If the lever does move do the barrels move at all?
Define "Messing with it".

The lever does move, but I can't break the barrels open. I keep shoving the lever back and forth until eventually it unlocks. Maybe it's just cooling down. But the cases extract fine. I have a gunsmith that works for me and he doesn't know. It will fire a shot or two, maybe even three, then it won't unlock.

Thank you for any help.

It is probably one of the plungers or springs bound up or gunked up:

Top Snap Plunger Spring
Locking Bolt Plunger
Top Snap Plunger
Locking Bolt Plunger Spring

Parts number 40 - 44 on this drawing

Lets see...

How sure were you that the gun wasn't working fine before you made the improvements? Ah huh... A hammer, a big hammer always works for me.

Break open actions work best if grease is used where the barrel and receiver mate.

Remove any oil from these areas and then apply a good coating of a grease.

Gun grease, Gunslick, Lubriplate, assembly lube/moly graphite. Also a good idea on the lever parts and barrel lugs.

It's an easy fix that may solve your problem.
