    I have a Franchi Alcione Field 12 ga and have been having difficulty taking it apart lately - to the point that now I can not disassemble it at all.

    The problem is when I try to remove the wooden fore-grip - there is a black lever in the bottom center that you pull back to release the grip, then the barrels come off and viola... but this lever, while always easy to pull, has been getting more and more difficult to get to release the grip from the barrel and now it will not release and I really don't want to force it.

    Any Ideas or similar experiences???

    Thanks in advance!

    I had the same problem with my Franchi/ Dicks Sporting Goods Diamond. I had to send it back to Franchi and they replace the safety assembly. It was under the 3 year warranty and had it back in my hands within 10 days.
