    Anyone qualified to take apart and clean an Iver Johnson Special Trap. I want someone who knows what they are doing because I am told that this gun is difficult to work with. Ideal gunsmith would also be able to reblue receiver and rebrown barrel.

    Thank you

    Cleaning is not an issue here.

    Unless the rib is soft soldered on, I think you are working backwards as from your post of......

    The actions on those are a casting that turns red in the blue tank, while the barrel should come out very black.

    Al:

    Page 15 of the 1932 Iver Johnson catalog, reproduced at page 146 of the Conely book on American Single Barrel Trap guns, described the barrel as "full choke, highly polished and browned." It also specifies a "blued frame." I do not doubt that you could be correct, but this is what is printed in the Conley book.

    In any event, I would like to find someone qualified to open it up and give it a good cleaning.
