Have a few questions about the Seitz. Had about 3 "no fires" today. Do you have to snap them shut to set the trigger? Dirty trigger?

Thanks, I fiqured it was a "user error thing". gonna play with it today again.

No soreness this morning, except for my elbows from opening and closing the gun 200+ time in 2 hours. Gun weighs 10.6 pounds. A bit of a workout.

Shot another 200 today, and have no shoulder problem. Not even sore. Kind of amazing. Shot 100 16's in practice. Real close (99/100). 27 yard will take some work. The gun is quite a bit heavier than the K-80 or MX-8. but still happy w/ it so far.

Fog, I wish it was 200/200! No, this was just practice on 16's and 27's w/a new Seitz gun. Trying to get it "set up" right for both yardages. My last 25 on 16's was with a pretty high setting and shot over one.

I think I will be fighting the weight of this gun till I get use to it, and I'm just plain rusty too. Haven't shot 27 yards for 3 years.

Keybear, The return spring for the trigger guard on the Seitz must be weak. It rattles and can be slid back and forth w/ ease. It doesn't affect opening the gun, just a nuisence. Can I fix that myself? I can call Seitz tomorrow and get a manual, but I've obviously have never dismantled a Seitz trigger before.

Your thoughts? Shot it again today at a local 75 bird shoot (16,20,23yds), but had it shooting too low. Broke a 69.

Did you shoot today?
