    Just got my first Perazzi combo and especially with the single bbl it fails to cock sometimes. I open & closed it once or twice more and then it will cock. Does it need a new cocking rod? The O/U bbls seldom fail to cock. The gun is a MX6, 1994 vintage unaltered. Any help is truly appreciated. Joe

    Sear might be worn.

    With a name like furface and a title "wont cock every time" you do realize your opening yourself for a barrage of comments.

    th gun needs to be timed. Cocking rod could be worn, Cocking foot could be worn, gun may not be fully opening. See the Gun Doctor, Doug Braker. 218-947-3600.

    Take the stock off and watch the hammer rotate past the sear. If when the action is fully open the hammer is just getting to the sear a larger shoe usually fixes things. If the hammer is going well past the sear and it still doesn't lock into the sear, there may be a problem with the sear spring.

    I traded sides with the sear springs and think I've found the cure. Also I was'nt opening it wide enough. Thanks everyone! Joe
