    My Ljutic started to pop open after the shell was fired. Anyone know what is wrong? Has this happened to you, with a Ljutic Mono?

    shot410ga,

    Two suggestions:

    1) Replace the Inertia Lock Spring. Call Ljutic. It costs $15 and is a snap to replace.

    2) Don't use grease on the locking lug and recess. Use oil instead. Save the grease for the pin and fore end.

    These solved my problems.

    Exactly what OTM said above. Greg

    Thanks, I just ordered a new spring. It's also what Ljutic told me. I guess springs wear out on Ljutics after 20 years and a couple hundred thousand shots.
