Diamond Bruce was good enough to sell me that pretty 1897, and the gun was as described. I can hardly wait to start shooting the gun at turkey shoots and literally start "hammering" the boys. Thanks again Bruce, nice dealing with you.

As the "97's" wore they are known to fire when you push the forearm foreword putting a shell in the chamber, something to keep in mind and keep the muzzle in a safe direction which I'm sure you do anyway.

I think you will find that the problem you are addressing was caused by an inoperative shell flag. Otherwise I have had no problems with the gun(s) firing when pushing the forearm forward. And one of mine has a kazillion rounds thru it.
