i think it may be my firing pin length, i cleaned it last night and looked and one of the pins is set just a hair back so that it is not flush, the one on the right side

He meant closest, you read it literally. Closet gunsmith, LOL. I get the mental image of a meek city liberal afraid to tell his parents he's been secretly fixing guns ever since he moved to the midwest. ROFLMAO.

Well I'm talking about Bubba the gunsmith, the guy who does experimental gun work in his basement or extra room.
I do my own gun-work obviously, but I'm far from a closet gunsmith as I have a small cash-in-hand operation for the people who know me and need regular maintenance or something like that.

It would be funny if there were those kind of people though.

Well at least you'll get you money back. We have a lot of double barrels at the local gun shop here, if I was willing to go through the trouble of selling mine and buy a different one I'd have plenty of choices. What do you plan to do with the money you get for the gun?

I've had intermittent problems with a Stoeger Uplander as well. I was doing some research last week on the issue. One comment I found lines up with something someone else mentioned previously.

The post recommend removing the stock and cleaning out the mechanism. Apparently, the grease the gun is packed with at the factory can be too heavy.

I'm going to have to try this.
