Re: Forearm won't release on Ideal Grade
Frustrating Joe and it may be a 2 person job. 1st be sure the hammers are cocked. Place the barrels rib down on a firm but cushioned surface. Brace the butt against your leg and lean forward and wheel the release forward. Have your helper pull up on the FE tip, and if he/she can't get enough purchase, use a wooden wedge (like 1/2 a wooden clothes pin) and gently tap it between the FE and barrels.
