Field grade safety malfunction.
Posted by Jim White on May 5, 2021, 4:55 pm
I have a 1913 vintage 12 ga field grade. Been in the family 4 generations now. Always been in great mechanical condition. Last few outings, the safety, if in the forward fire position, will return to safe if either barrel is fired. You have to push it forward again to shoot the second barrel. You can push it to fire and not shoot and it will return as designed when the gun in opened. Stays in place if fired in the rear position. Any ideas what might have gone wrong? Has not been worked on or tampered with.
