    I have a 12ga o/u that fits/shoots great and I don't want to get another gun. but age has caught up with me and I no longer want to shoot 1 1/8 or 1oz loads.when i shoot mild 7/8 or 3/4 loads the gun will not reset the barrels.can the inertia blocks be changed or is there a more simple way?

    You can increase the weight of the block by using lead tape. Cut a little square piece of lead tape and stick it on each side of the block. You can get the tape at the hardware store or plumbing supply store. HMB

    Try bumping the speed a bit on your light loads. They perform better with at least 1200-1250 fps, and these should reset your triggers. Mark

    A good gunsmith may be able to lighten the spring by cutting off a couple of coils. Ron

    What kind of gun is it? Perhaps you can have the triggers converted to mechanical.... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    For the Citori, I believe all that needs to be done is change the inertia spring to the one used in 28 ga and .410.
