Your not dumb for buying it. Its a damn fine weapon that shoots straight and devastating to game. Your dumb, as i am, for thinking you can take it apart and get it back together!

Do like i did....contact local gunsmith!

Doesnt matter how well it shoots if its not easily user serviceable its not worth much to me. I dont want to pay a gunsmith to put it together everytime i clean it.

Just dont drop the trigger group and you'll be fine. After i dis assembled mine i found the springs werent really that dirty. and that was after a few years of shooting. I shoot my wolf quite a bit at the range.

imma go out on a limb here and suggest they (inlines) are all pretty close to the same as far as design...

I was thinking more old school like a lyman flintlock trade gun or something along those lines.

Yeah, sidelocks are pretty cool as well. I have a CVA Hawken...that thing beats the hell outta me. But its killed quite a few deer.

But there again, i took it apart to "fix" and ruined it. I need to send the barrel back to the company for a new one.
