    A friend has a older citori combo, the lever is a little to the left of center and opens on the second shot of doubles. Who is a good gunsmith to do the repairs. Have you any idea of the cost.

    Brownings method was welding the wear area of the locking bolt and regrinding to proper size & angle. Saved them refitting all the other contact sides involved. Thay did a Superposed for me a couple of times under their lifetime warranty.(they no longer issue a lifetime warranty)

    Possible. Just pull everything apart, then send it to a good Browning smith to re-assemble....
