I've got an older Simson SxS shotgun that needs some work on the stock. The action appears to be identical to the Merkel 147e. I've gotten to the screws on the bottom of the action and cannot find a screw driver that will fit. The thinnest I can find is 1/8" and it's just a bit too fat for it. Has anybody disassembled one and know the necessary screw driver size? Thanks in advance.

Just take a Rude word file and file it to fit. That is the best way & the turnscrew will be mated to the Simson screw slots.

Once you have ground a screwdriver to fit, be prepared to put that action body upside down into a padded vise and "get your shoulder" into turning that action screw.

Odd that one can't type a file type on here: B(a)(s)(t)(a)(r)(d)?

Too, make sure the tip is flat / blunt & not sharp. Then put the turnscrew firmly in the screw slot as noted above & give it a rap w/ a hammer. Many times this will give it the needed jar before you twist the turnscrew out of the slot. Also, a piece of leather with a hole in it might prevent an errant scratch?
