Re: gun opening upon firing
I have had several junkers as well as high grade Smiths with the same problem. Even if the spring isn't broke it can be weak and worn allowing it to open up. I have actually tried to hold the top lever closed with my thumb as I shot it and it about took my thumb off. That shows the strength of the spring and it's importance of having it repaired.
