Here is the spring to my ithaca model 37 featherlight tube. They say that I shouldn't bend the spring or stretch it but both ends are coiled so there is no real way to get the 3 shot plug out without bending or stretching it. Any suggestions? Should I just stretch it some and bend it to where I can get the plug out or is there another way? Thanks in advance.
Ok, so I got the plug out of the spring now when I rack the gun, it won't fire. I messed with it for a few minutes and it seems to be if I press the action just slightly, it sounds like a spring is being released and it lets me pull the trigger and the gun goes off. Any ideas?
Took the barrel back off and racked it a few times all with successful trigger pull with the firing pin coming forward. It is like something isn't sitting right after I have removed the plug while the barrel is on. Any ideas?
Yessir, I don't give up on trying to fix things. I usually keep going till I can solve it even if it takes hours and hours. I am learning about things slowly but surely. Thanks for checking back in though.
