Re: Springfield/Stevens side by side 12 Ga.
The "clean up" is done... cleaned the barrels, rust blued..grey.. what ever.. I even did the internals... I'm holding off on the stock... its suppose to be a "wall trophy". I know the recoil pad is NOT original... more on that later
So. I took it to the range today, to function test it... lets just say.. I'm glad that recoil pad was there... both tubes fired together. Felt like a .243 break action actually.
Any way... When the SXS is empty, locked, and cocked.. it takes about 7 pounds to pull each trigger... and they will release one at a time... regardless of which is pulled first. Now, Why did I get both tubes to fire at once?
The only thing I can think of (besides this being old) is that the spring that holds the sears in the "engaged" position is slipping out of the groove in the tang that keeps tension on the spring... the stock helps keep the spring in this groove. And the stock is gapped near that area on the tang.
Whats your thoughts?
You can't prevent the inevitable.. only alter its time span!
