I have a chance to buy an Alcione Ti 20 ga with a known defect. Checking to see if anyone has had the same issue.

When the gun is fully broken open, that is, the ejectors have functioned, the gun will not close.

When the gun is partially broken open, that is, just enough to manually pull the hulls out, the gun will close normally.

The owner claims that Franchi told him that there is an "aluminum cam" that is worn and this can only be repaired by a gunsmith by welding up aluminum and filing back down to factory specs.

That seems implausible to me.

Any ideas?
