    Any idea how I can resolve the gun locking up? After firing the lever will not operate to open the ejector. I bought this used recently to add to my other 2 99's, but there are a number of scratches where the previous owner pried the ejector open to get the shell loose.

    Time to go to a really good Savage 99 smith. These are not trivial guns to dissemble and timing is critical. Maybe GunPlumber down in Arizona will do it - he worked on my 99/308 and it works fine :)
