    My first post here so go easy on me fellers, been readin awhile and couldn't find an answer to this with a search.

    Since the Ljutics are going thru a tragety right now i thought Iwould as this here. I'm looking at a Ljutic Dyno single barrel that has some play in the barrel, that is with it closed you can move the barrel just a little up and down, its a very small amount of movement, I'd guess 4 or 5 thousands. Never had a shotgun with even that much play so Im a little concerned. I can't detect any side to side play. I took it apart and it's a very simple design.

    Question is shooting it this way, is it safe? I tinker with guns as a hobby, is this anything I could fix myself? If not does anyone have an idea what Ljutic would charge and is there any other gunsmiths that can tighten this up?

    Like I say I don't want to bother the Ljutics right now. My condolences to them.

    Unless this gun is really cheap forget about it . There are hundreds of clean used LJutic guns for sale at good prices .

    Call Indiana Gun Club and ask them . They have 30 or 40 used LJutic guns now and will deal .

    I never heard of a "dyno" so I think it must be a dynatrap, an economy version that was sold in the early 70's. As worn as it seems to be I would agree with Alf-99 that you certainly shouldn't put any money into it.

    sometimes adj. the forearm screw will take out the play, I think it take a 9/64 allen wrench.

    Remove the Bbl and then slide out the inertia block, now file the front of it on a curve profile like that one on it, take off a little at a time , this will let the inertia lock go into the locking lug further, no more than .002" at a time, if it is not getting tighter, it may need an oversized inertia block. Slamming a Ljutic shut causes this to happen, send the gun back to Ljutic and have Jimmy tighten it up, should not be too expensive. While they have it have Jimmy install a complete set of pins in the trigger and get a spare set. Jimmy will be back in the shop in a few days after the funeral. Sorry to hear about Josef's passing, he was a great shooter and a fine machinist.
