Gun Break Issue

    Recommended Posts

    Recently purchased a Rizzini V3, so far has been excellent for busting clays.

    However when I break the gun to eject cartridges it ejects them fine but then the barrels rock back slightly and I can't put a cartridge in the bottom barrel unless I pull down slightly on the forend. The natural "resting" position on the break is a fraction out of line stopping a new cartridge going in the bottom. 

    Gun shoots and ejects perfectly fine other than that was just looking for some guidance on what might be causing the barrels/foreend to rock back slightly.

    I would second that.  Sometimes it never gets any better though. I had a Beretta 20 bore that was several years old and had fired 1000's of cartridges, that had some 'overdraught' and it was a right pain, especially on a driven day or a clay shoot 'flush'  !

    Youll get used to it. It will get easier. My sxs and a o/u was the same. Just learn to tuck the gun in your side when loading/unloading whilst freeing your hand to grab carts. Failing that the subject has been breached (no pun) on here a few times.

    Thanks! I did think this, From a bit of inspection that it's the ejector cocking levers are a bit keen on new springs, by no means a deal breaker just a tad annoying at the moment.😁

    Yeah I load that way anyway so it's not been a huge pain, hopefully will wear in over the next few weeks.

    Thanks for the responses I've been shooting about a year and I think I just got used to the quirks of my other gun.

    This is common with many O/U's if its an older gun it may be worse as wear on the cocking rods/cam occur .

    If the forend is slightly loose it will make it seem worse so may be tightening it up will help , but is really a matter of just getting used to it .

    Very normal the cocking rods are often a touch short allowing the rock back but much better than too long!  It happens with many many guns and imho something you just need to get used to with OUs

    Shot again today and after another hundred it's certainly getting a little easier to remember to do it naturally. 

    Cheers all

    My Perazzi does this, it isn’t an issue really once you know about it. 

    So does mine!
