    Looking for replacement parts for my old Ithaca Flues 4E. It shoots great, but recently had a couple of light strikes on the primer. You could see where the firing pin hit the primer, but it did not strike it deep enough to cause the primer to ignite. Put the shell back in again and it fired on the second strike. Anyone else had this happen? I talked to my gunsmith and he told me that with the shells I use having a steel primer instead of a brass one may be the cause, or perhaps I need a new spring for the firing mechanism. Anyone have an idea of where I may find one as a replacement? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Pete

    Pumpernck, I have a couple of those old guns and sometimes suffer the same dilemma. It might be any number of things or a combination of things. If they began to have a little "off the breech face", worn hinge pin, worn chamber, worn firing pin, or maybe a weak spring, ignition can be spotty. I have two, about 35 serial numbers apart and one(which has been rebuilt) never fails with new shells and the other sometimes will. THe guys who work on these old guns a lot are pretty good and can have you running in no time. I think reloads with the steel bases also may contribute.
