Thanks, my wife's cousin said he cleaned the gun thoroughly before he brought it down to the get together. He did say he was concerned he my have lubed it a little too much. It really doesn't appear to be though. I have not had a chance to shot it yet I had planned on doing it but the weather didn't cooperate. I'll try today and I'll also take some pictures of it. Someone might see something I'm overlooking. I'm going to try to find out what measurements of the locking bar and what I call the locking lugs are supposed to be. That might tell me a lot right there. Unfortunately My wife's uncle never said anything about a problem with the gun. He fought leukemia for the last 20 years before he passed away and had quit hunting and trap shooting because of it.
