Shipping cosmoline or grease drys up and causes these types of problems. So many times cleaning a new gun solves misfire problems. With any brand gun.

Update on my Canvasback.

I took her out yesterday and shot four rounds of skeet. No problems whatsoeverr. I tried bottom barrel first, top barrel first and everything worked fine.
There was nothing wrong with the gun. It was the crud on the bottom of the selector block.

I love my C-Back again. :D :D

I think I'm going to tear mine down before the club opens this year just to be sure alls well and clean inside. I was going to do it last year but a local guy convinced me I shouldn't worry about it, if it aint broke don't fix it. I don't think I'm going to be content ignoring it anymore though. Glad to hear they got you fixed up! Just out of curiosity herb, where did they have you send your gun? Lachine, QC?

Just curious how long has it been since that area of the gun was cleaned last Herb? Not being critical at all just pointing out how important it is not to forget to clean & lube areas that may seem unimportant in gun function. Luckily you didn't send the gun in for repair when all it needed was a cleaning, I don't know what Huglu's policy is when guns are sent back under those circumstances? Would the customer be charged for this kind of thing?

No I didn't. Please read the entire thread. (I know it's long) :)

I cleaned the action after I received it about a year and a half ago but I couldn't reach the area too good because of the hammer springs.

Well just glad you were able to do it yourself Herb, when I had the recoil pad put on my gun just a week or so after I bought it I had the guy clean & lube up the trigger assembly too as long as I had it in the shop it was money well spent he said its neglected and many never know it needs to be taken care of.

Herb,
Did you use that modified screwdriver tool to reinstall your hammer springs?

No Sir I did not. I went to the hardware store to buy a screw driver to convert but found the perfect tool. It is 12 inches long. Didn't take me ten minutes to install the springs. Got the idea from somebody on the gunsmith forum.
