The cocking rod for the rear trigger is inconsistent. It appears that it is not secured in the action as it can be moved forward. I believe I could slide it out. Intermittently does not cock the left hammer. If I reopen the gun and depress the barrels with more pressure it will then cock. What needs to be done to correct this problem. Thanks

The cocking rod is 2 pieces

The rear piece in simply hammered in place, and has likely slipped

Unfortunately this is not a do-it-yourself repair as it requires removal of the stock. Removal is easy with the correct screwdrivers; getting everything back together is difficult

Drew,

Thanks for the reply and pics. I was sure it was not something I would be comfortable attempting my self. From the pics it looks like the collar has marks where it has been peened as well as force fit. Do you have a recommendation for a smith out here in the west that is good with L C Smith repairs?

Jim
