My forum friends a question for you, I have a Yildiz 12G O/O I admit it’s not top shelf but, it is what it is. The question, how long it will take to loosen up (Break in)? Mainly the tightness of the top Lever and the hinge.

thanks.

You could but it shouldn't be necessary. My father's was really tight. I pulled it apart and cleaned some factory crud out of it, oiled it and that buy itself made a difference.

I wouldnt doing the lapping thing. When it breaks in naturally the action will loosen. Enjoy it while it still has little play. An issue with break opens of cheap nature is as they loosen up or if they loosen too much (lapping) you will get misfires, no fires, broken firing pins, or worst case hangfires which can lead to injury.

If your gun ever develops any or some of those have it checked and start looking for a new one. Break open shotguns and shotguns under 5k$ i consider disposable. Even the top dollar have very limited, in terms of shotgunning, use.

Just my opinion. Im not a huge shotgunner
