Re: Curtis forend release disassembly?
Edited by board administrator March 25, 2021, 4:24 pm
This posting motivated me to do some work on one of my 4 Curtis Release guns. I need to replace the wood and will make one. Disassembled, the mechanism is different from the picture in the first Williamson post. There is no slot for release, alignment tab, coil spring, or spring housing. My 4 Curtis guns were made in '16-19'. My parts seem to match the Curtis Patent drawing on p. 675 of Houchins. Was there more than one design?
