    I have a SKB 605 O/U that has a firing pin on the lower barrel that is weak. It will work some of the times and other times, it will barely dent the primer and not fire the shell. I am looking for recommendation on a gunsmith, preferably in Iowa but I am willing to send it somewhere to get the job done. Please post any responses or email me at cwbcdad@yahoo.com or call me at 319-360-2286. Thanks, Brad

    Call SKB at 800-752-2767. Ask for Don. He will take care of you. If you were in Tn, I would help you out. I service the SKB shotgun.

    These are very good guns, with many features found in five figure shotguns.

    This happened to my SKB...turns out that it was a broken cocking rod spring causing it and nothing related to the firing pin. If the cocking rod doesn't fully retract then the hammer glances off it on the way to the firing pin and takes enough energy off the hammer so that the primer is dimpled but the shell doesn't fire.

    If this is your cause then it will be a 10 minute job for your gunsmith. Good luck. And I second the comment about Don at SKB.
