    I imagine one of these will be close enough to be of help.

    I'm sure it will be very handy for someone. I've had similar experiences where I took a gun apart and walked away for a week while waiting for parts and then had a hell of a time remembering how things went. I learned real fast to take pictures and reassemble while waiting on parts.

    Yeah, i dropped the trigger group out of mine to clean and it popped into a thousand peices...2 days before season :eek:

    SERIOUS PITA!!

    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! :p

    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.:eek: I need to send the barrel back to the company for a new one.
