Hello 93x64mm,

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, I think I'm done with this one.

Hello All,

Here are a couple pictures of the locks on this double rifle. The reason I removed them, is that today while shooting I had the rifle "double" on me. When I fired the right barrel, BOTH barrels fired. This happened on the 4th pair. WOW ! !

Normally the recoil from shooting this 8-1/4 pound rifle with a 325g bullet traveling 1560 fps, is about 17.7 ft/lbs. That's not bad from an 8-1/4 pound rifle. However, when it "doubled", the recoil spiked to 71 ft/lbs. This is the first time this has happened in over 100 shots, but 71 ft/lbs of recoil really hurts from an 8-1/4 pound rifle.

This is why I removed the locks. I thoroughly cleaned and oiled them, and tightened a few loose screws. I'm hoping that this won't happen again.

Ouch- the sear engagement looks OK on the left one, but picture is a little hard to make out.
Nice locks.

Are you sure it is the locks. My German rifle doubles when you shoot it off the bench. After about the tenth time it did it I realized that the horn trigger guard (witch I hate) positions my right hand wrong and that my trigger finger is hitting the rear trigger under recoil. I have to make a conscious effort to wrap my finger around the front trigger. My hand is then in an unnatural position.

Hello Daryl_S

Thanks for the reply.

I think both sears are fine. I'm hoping it might have just been a small piece of debris that caused poor engagement.

Hello Wayne59,

Thanks for the reply.

I don't think I "strummed" the rear trigger, but I'll be paying close attention to that possibility next time I take the rifle shooting.
