    I have never really had any problems with a ljutic, other than the fact that the damn things just wont die. I dont know if you can really call that a problem though. lol. built like a tank and one of the best shooting guns on the market. At the clubs I shoot at you see far more ljutics than any other trap gun on the market. every once in a while i hear of a firing pin break, a spring snap or wear out some where but not enough to deter those who shoot them. If you have ljutic #148 and all you have had to replace is a few springs id say thats a testament to there integrity, and durability. I hope you can enjoy that gun for many more years to come.

    Not too long ago I got to daydreaming what I would buy if I won the Lotto here in Texas. Decided if I did win, I would keep my two Ljutics, nothing else could even tempt me. Even if money was no object. I am extremely satisfied with my guns.

    Just curious, when was your gun made?

    I recently started having misfires with my Ljutic Mono, especially with some older CCI primers. Called Jimmy at Ljutic and he sent me a new hammer spring and now it will fire any primer.

    Ljutics do NOT like "dry firing".

    Ljutic148, About 90% of misfires in Ljutics are shell related. Primers set too deep etc.A good trick is to take out the firing pin and clean the firing pin hole. It gets some debris in there. I take a Q-tip and bend it with some powder solvent and swab it out good. Then take the firing pin and chuck it in the drill press and polish it bright and shiney. They sell a firing pin return spring that works well.Hope this helps George

    do not put grease on the cocking rod, use a light oil because in the winter the hammer falls won't push the cocking rod back due to viscosity of the grease in the cold weather, causes a lot of mis fires.

    No problems w/Ljutics

    I broke a firing pin and a cocking rod pin in 18 years. Check the firing pin. Mine broke behind the taper and didn't fall out. I have put 200,000 or 250,000 or more shells through this gun. A bunch were XX magnum 4's. My hammer spring is getting a little weak on some Fiocchi primers. There goes another $15.00...LOL

    I just had mine rebuilt #28XX after 500,000 plus rounds, 90% reloads. It looks and feels like a new gun. Why did I get it rebuilt? It looked like crap, after being handled a half million times.

    Mine , built in 1966 ? had a firing pin problem years ago. The pin was flared out somewhat and was dragging in the hole causing some misfires , A file to the edge cured it . I do have another firing pin but couldn`t find it at the time . Other than that , it keeps on ticking .

    Mine is #2011 and I got it from my buddy who quit shooting trap at 70 after putting 200,000 thru it. I have about 70,000 thru it and never a problem . I clean the barrell every once in awhile and the trigger and pins and springs about twice a year.

    I am impressed how much some of you guys shoot annually! 500,000 divided by 17 years is approx 30,000 singles and caps annually! Now that is one hell of a lot of shooting! Tom Rhoads

    Yeah, I have a Ljutic problem. Problem is, my best trapshooting buddy has one and I don't! Other than that, no problems at all.

    I had a Ljutic mono gun for a couple years, and the only problems I had with it was the release trigger changed settings almost at will, and the trigger pins had a habit of breaking every now and then. Have since gone to Perazzi guns and never looked back.... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    Best buy on the market. Allows you to concentrate on shooting and not on possible gun problems. For me the less I have to think about when I am shooting the better. Owned 4 still have 3 and only need 1. Just hard to pass up good deals. Shouldn't have sold the 1 that I did. Glenn

    Wyatt, I have Ljutic Mono #121. The only problem I have is with Gun Club ammo. On the average there is 1 shell in each box that will not fire. 2 years ago I had problems with 1 lot of Estate ammo but everything is OK now. Like someone else mentioned, you should take the firing pin out and clean the hole and the area where the pin moves. A new firing pin and spring might also help. They are a lot less expensive than P-gun springs and pins. Larry
