    Trigger 1: externally sel--gun opens all the way down and you are able to load to shells...

    Trigger 2: non sel--pull pull--bottom first--the gun opens to about 95% and when trying to chamber the bottom shell it sticks on the reciever head..there is a slight nudge needed to the barrels and the shell drops in--

    Could this lead to any problems down the road

    Thanks

    The cocking bar sounds a little too long while setting the pull pull hammers back. It appears the flat springs are being over compressed and could lead to early failure. Remove the stock and while cocking the gun you will see the hammers over cocking too far if this is the case.

    Trigger #2 's cocking feet need fitting/shortening.

    Assuming trigger #2 is not original to the gun?

    Switch the cocking feet and see if it changes.

    Hi all--took trigger 2 and noticed the v spring on one side was more stressed\lower than the either---as if the spring is weak--replaced with new spring---problem solved--both triggers work fine--
