    Hi Guys,
    I have a 3200 that will open on its own (without pushing lever) after a shot. It does it probably once every 20 shots. Any ideas on what needs to be replaced to fix this?

    Sounds like the gun/barrel lockup is worn to the point of not working well. There are fixes but Kerz has the right idea, send it to Laibs and they will fix it just fine.....breakemall

    Add: 2 good thoughts below......BDodd

    Most likely the lever spring is weak. Spring replacement should take care of the problem. Check how far the lever is to the right of center with the gun closed. If it is right of center it is most likely a weak spring.

    It might just have a build up of crud under the top lock. Try cleaning it out with a good solvent.

    Sometimes lube in the monoblock lock knotches will cause this. I have seen it happen with a couple of different guns. Marc
