Ram68 issues. Yes..i know...its rap4.

Hoping someone is able to guide me in the rigbt direction. Got a used ram68 tactical shotgun,cheap..

Was told it has a feeding issue.m turns out has a cocking issue..

I was joping someone else had one or jas had enough experiance and has either a clear diagram of the trigger assembly or a photo of their. Any diagram i come across is blurry and cant make out anything.

The bolt seems to not want to catch on the valve sear? The valve always seems to be just a tad out of reach for it to catch..

Any ideas. ?

Well, I have a ram68 in the collection but it's a Darkside, not a RAP-4.
May not be the same thing.

Here ya go. Nothing comes to mind as to why yours wouldn't work but maybe you have a weak valve spring and needs to be gassed up to lock the hammer like most Nelson based markers.

If you've got it disassembled I'd look at the sear and make sure it's got a nice ramp leading up to the hooked part. If I remember correctly, I had one roughly cut and a bit squared at the tip so it would not go over the bolt lip easily.

The whole trigger mechanism shouldn't interfere with the hammer and bolt catching. The hammer is seated onto the powertube.

I also had a problem with mine not having a reliable trigger pull, the trigger was pulling but not contacting the sear to release the bolt as their was a fair size gap between the two parts. the solution I used was to build up a layer of two part epoxy on the trigger arm so it would reach the sear, IIRC I had to sand it down a little after because it was tipping the sear too easy and firing without pulling the trigger so I had to sand it down to find the sweet spot where the trigger worked properly.

the biggest problem I had with my ram68 was the rounds getting squished whenever I would close the loading door the rounds would rush into the breach too fast and smash themselves up, was never able to resolve that issue so I shelved my ram68. the fishing line mod would probably fix it but I was not interested in doing that.
