Thread: O/U Shotgun

    O/U Shotgun

    How long does it take for the stiffness of a new gun to get easier to break open? It has fired approximately 250 shells so I am guessing it hasn't even been broken in yet.

    when it gets nice and slack just like you wish it to be you will know my old 687 was aroud 1000 before it became any use as flurry gun

    If it's a Japanese Browning or Miroku it can take a few thousand.

    Don't have anything that fabulous! Just got a cheapish Bettinsoli to test the water at clay grounds and so far it has been an enjoyable experience.

    Make sure all the metal-on-metal moving parts have some grease/lube on them - this helps.

    I had a Lanber O/U once that took over a thousand shots before it even began to loosen up
    A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care

    I've had a Miroku MK60 for many years and it's still pretty tight. Brilliant gun.

    About 10 years if it's for game

    My beretta is still very tight after 2000 I wish I had a s/h gun as I hate them too tight

    My Browning Ultra XT is still pretty stiff after approx. 1000 shots. Much better than when it was new though!
