I don't know about the "good" part of that description. From what I've been able to find, this gun sold new in hardware stores for about $10 - 12, when it was common to earn about $1 per day. Current value/sale price is between $175 and 400 for much nicer specimens. While not a trained gunsmith, I fancy myself an amateur with skills. I'm a couple noches above a hack. Maybe you have resources to employ the services of a reputed gunsmith that will take months to get around to a two hour task for twice the realistic value of a gun that probably spent many years propped in the corners of the barn and looks the part.If a good double is worth putting back on face, it's worth paying a pro to do it right.
Same for me. I went back to work on the right trigger, took the barrels off to show my daughter and the shim fell out. I'm considering low temp so solder and a shim that only covers about a fraction of the hook radius.I wish Larry had shown more about matching the pin radius to the hook. This was a problem as the added material created pinch points where the hook hit the pin top and bottom. By the time I reshaped the hook the glue had broken loose and the shim fell off. Took several tries but finally got a usable fit. Still not perfect but it was a good learning experience.
Gentle 7/8th loads??? Is that gentle in recoil or Pressure ? It is the pressure that is important.I ordered some Harrris Stay Brite silver bearing solder and flux. Fabricated a new shim from steel stock. I wrapped the barrels in wet rags to keep them firmly attached. Afterwards I filed hook and the forearm attach hook. My daughter will shoot it Wednesday at Trap. I loaded some gentle 7/8 oz loads for the rebirth.
