    Ok, so I posted another thread about my rebuild project of an LC Smith double barrel. It mainly needs a new stock and foregrip, but I have found another problem with it. The opening lever is stuck, and won't budge. It's stuck in the open position, and I think that a piece may be broke.
    Here's some pics:

    I honestly can't see a damn thing in the pics (on my phone). I'd start with a good penetrating oil to see if anything loosens up.

    Yeah the pictures are crappy. I took them with iPhone and they weren't that bad, but when they uploaded to this thread, the quality was majorly downgraded.

    Yeah, it is 70 years old, so it might have a little rust XD
