    A family member and I were talking about his old 16ga model 12 and how much he loved the gun. When I asked him why he didn't shoot it anymore, he replied because it kept slam firing. I asked if I could take a look. Well it took every ounce of my rear end to get the breech to open and it looked like a a coal mine inside. "Well I think I found your problem. When was the last time this thing was cleaned."

    He responds, "Well I bought it new in the sixties and had it reblued in 75'. That was the last time it was taken apart." :eek: You haven't cleaned it since 1975?!?!?!

    Anyway, he didn't know how to take it apart and I can only get the barrel/mag off of it. Anyone know how to take the receiver down?
