    I would post some pictures of an improvement I made to my Ljutic, however I still don't know how to post pictures on TS.Com. If someone would be kind enough to post them I will Email them to the more computer literate so they can be shown. Thanks, Biff

    "I was wearing a blister on my finger everytime I broke the gun open for dryfiring. It really made a difference."

    Thanks Skeetman, that was faster than a speeding bullet!!!This is the rough draft, he didn't want me to take without him grinding and polishing to perfection, but I wanted it before it cooled even. The stock break open button is only half as wide as my finger and with many opening and closings it made a blister---but no more! I wanted you to see it compared with the standard original equipment.

    It is now shaped similar to the break open button on the Centennial Pro and the gun is much improved. Ljutic will make a new one similar to this modified version for over $300 plus shipping them your gun so they can fit the new part! Thanks again Skeetman, hope this will help some of you Ljutic owners! Biff

    Biff- No prob. As a DIY gunsmith (for minor stuff), stuff like this always fascinates me. Someone has a problem w/ something, and rather than throwing money at it to fix it, they use good old american ingenuity to solve the problem on their own.

    Mooshoo, aren't you the cute one! Never thought of that, but like the idea of the 8 ball and now am looking for some fuzzy dice! Biff

    Just ribbing you Biff. :) Seriously though, your idea is good, new Ljutic's can be a bear to open.

    Thanks, I'll be trying it at Hog Heaven tomorrow if the wind hasn't blown that place away today! BTW I had the other break open in the picture done also; those two Centennial Monoguns are consecutively numbered and shoot the same POI!Biff

    I wear golfing gloves and get no blister. I also use my "no-no" finger so my trigger finger doesn't get over worked.

    cd, as a certified, qualified,ratified Ljutic user, I also use my middle finger--which happens to be twice the size of the break open button. I too use gloves when shooting, but I don't when I am dryfiring breaking down the gun hundreds of times while practicing. It is not mandatory to to add the "little helper" and alot of Ljutic users don't even use the No-No finger; guess I'll never get it through my head that you can't help trapshooters. I was only hoping it might make it easier for the less adept. Biff

    John, most guys will appreciate your tech tip! I don't shoot a Ljutic but if I did, I'd add one likewise! Just to save wear n tear on the good fingers! Hap

    Actually I've been thinking of switching to my third finder so I don’t over work my “road-rage” finger. You never know when your going to need it these days.

    cd, you're a hoot! There's probably plenty in your No-No finger that would crash a semi! Biff

    Great Idea I just switched to a release because of what was becoming a major flinch problem. In order to break the Ljutic down in case of a bad bird I practiced using my left hand with the inside of my thumb pressing the lock button and my fingers over the shell when the barrel drops down. It works well and after about 200 repeats it feels natural but in that same 200 times I got a heck of a blister on the left thumb. The Biff Hook may be just the answer. Thanks for sharing.

    A fellow saw the break down button addition and asked me what it was; I told him it was double set triggers to set the trigger when I wanted a light trigger to shoot targets with. I did tell him better, and let him try breaking it open, he couldn't get over how much easier it worked. He said he wanted to get his fixed that way, but I doubt many will ever do it unless they try it for themselves. Biff
