I don't own a Ljutic,(to my great sadness,) but I overheard a conversation between a friend who does and two different gunsmiths at the Missouri Trap Association grounds in Linn Creek, MO during one of their big shoots. Both gunsmiths said it was ok to dry fire a Ljutic if you were using a good high quality snap cap, but to NEVER dry fire one without a snap cap! Martinpicker
You never dry fire any Ljutic. It will bend the hammer pin. The pin is holo-krome, 1"x.125. These should and can be replaced about every 2 to 3 thousand rds. or before if you prefer. You should lubricate these pins when installed and should remove them from time to time , clean and lubricate. If you see excessive wear, remove and replace. Roy
I'm talking about a Mono gun. It is suggested by Jimmy Ljutic to perform this maintenance if you choose to. You do not have to do this. He only suggest this if you feel your lock time has decreased. It is a choice, not mandatory. Re-lubing the pin will increase life of the pin. Roy
I,m on my 5th or 6th, can't remember. Never had a problem other than one broken firing pin, I repaired myself. I do all my own repairs and maintenance. great gun and probably the best single barrel produced today or in the past. Do not lose your cocking rod retainer pin. It's a good idea to have a couple back-ups in case it falls out while performing maintenance. They can be hard to find.
