hi guys-- been awhile. may have buggered my SxS
hi all. been some months since i signed in here. i've been so busy with the Land Rover 4x4 thing that my time has gotten eaten up by it.
now that it's winter, i'm getting back into shooting sports.
just bought a used, but in very good condition SxS. a fairly unusual one for tristar. it's 20 ga SxS made in spain for them by zabala hermanos. it's called the tristar brittany sport.
i haven't even taken it out yet, and i think i've buggered it up somehow.
i put snap caps in it tonight, and pulled the trigger for both barrels, went to open it to reset the trigger to try again for fun, and it didn't want to open. would open up a crack, but not properly and fully. sensing something was amiss, i closed it, tried again. same. closed it, tried again. tried to fire again in case it had reset, and couldn't fire either barrel, and can't open it. only way i can open it is to take the forend off and disassemble. trigger is like a car gearstick in neutral, regardless of whether it's on fire or safety now.
thoughts? it IS a sidelock SxS so i'm sure it has tiny springs and what not internally. did i break something?
