That looks real good LetFly. That's a nice looking repair and refinish job. I think Uncle Dan would be happy that you saved this G Grade and are putting it back in service. It should be good for another 100 years.

I have found that going on the darker side when finishing, as you did here, does a better job of making any crack repairs less evident.

It was also very nice to see that you gave Lou (dblgunfix) credit and praise for the work he did in making a new cocking or hammer axle. Thanks for sharing your project with us.

Lefever project #47216 G wood refurbished. Next step to restore the Damascus pattern on the barrels after the quail shoots in April.

A sincere thanks to forum members who helped with advice and comments on wood splits and crack repair. Also the in-depth discussions on wood finish, Flexner's book, etc. proved to be quite valuable. This forum is unmatched for advice, insight, and information. Much appreciated.

Keith offered infinitely more help on this thread than you did. All you did was show up and snipe.

If you don't like the "crew" feel free to go back wherever you were for the last few months before you resurfaced.

I am new to the Dg BBS and I really enjoyed the interaction with others as interested in double guns as myself. This Lefever project and thread has been fun. Now...

I have noticed snipping and bad blood between some members as I read other threads. I am interested in learning from others more experienced and sharing what I am working on. I would appreciate it if you would not hijack my thread, this one or any other, for this purpose. Carping at others, please do it on your own thread.

I find this BBS very informative so please post on my threads if you have something to offer to the discussion and topic.

Unfortunately, this seems to be the way things are on here, and as the first reply to your request demonstrates, it doesn't change anything to ask for less of the bull, even within your own thread.

And the website owner won't change anything, apparently. A casual stroll through the archives will demonstrate that this has been going on for decades.

This is the only forum that has ever asked for donations in my experience, and its website is archaic and unmoderated.

But the content is gold (if you're willing to dig through the rubble).

Alrighty then, continuing on...

Now, getting back to the Lefever project. Wood finished, save the final rub out (still waiting on a hard cure) and wax, I have this issue to resolve. After the thorough, perhaps too much so, cleaning, the cocking hook keyway no longer functions as intended. After 106 years of who knows how many cockings, the keyway slot has been elongated just enough to the point that the hammer pin no longer rotates the hammer hooks far enough to engage the sear hooks. A couple of photos to illustrate.





Now getting the hook keyway repaired to be a custom snug fit to the hammer pin key.

Quail season is just around the corner. Quailing over the Brits in April is definitely a social distancing activity I intend to participate in with Uncle Dan's #47216.

Stan was just "sniping". It's interesting what he whines about and what he gives a pass.
