Re: Springfield/Stevens side by side 12 Ga.
Spudz, your correct... and it looks like the underside, at rear of the barrel has a 3/8 inch dia. pin that will pivot that "Y" shaped "thingie" as the barrel pivots breach up or muzzle down.. ketchup/catsup.. And it looks like there isn't a provision for the "cocking hook" on this particular sub model. Also there is also a spent shell push rod that is suppose to push back as the barrels tilt.. but I think a little something is missing at the rear of the fore grip frame that pushes the "extractor" Need to order that!
And JLA.. I think that lever is so massive as to over come the gigantic spring that returns the lever to the "fort Knox" locked position... Holly cow thats a tight spring!
You can't prevent the inevitable.. only alter its time span!
