:D

I brought 'her' home today. ( I named her 'Rachel', in honor of JMB's Wife ) :)
Thank you all for your help with the information during my acquisition phase.
Another customer in the shop showed me how to remove the bbl., etc.
Congratulated me on the purchase.
I picked up a box of 25 'low brass' #2 Clever brand Italian shells so I wouldn't be driving home with the shotgun and no ammo for it in the car... :roll:
Of course, my Beretta MiniCougar .40 CAL. was in the glovebox, but I just 'felt' better having ammo for the long gun --- you know?
This is one of the most satisfying buys ever. 8)

Now to get the manual, wrench and screwdriver set. :wink:

One bit of advise. When you put your gun away,

1. Open the action
2. With the barrel on the gun, push the barrel in toward the
receiver and hold it there.
3. Tighten the end cap all the way down and then back off one
or two clicks.
4. Let the barrel slide back out.
5. Close the action

You do this so the end cap doesn't lock into the front forearm and you can't get the cap off which happens over prolong A5 storage. By the way, congrats! A finer gun was never made!

Fishingholes point is epecially true if you have recently refinished the wood.

Though a finish feels completely dry if it is oil based it remails somewhat soft for some time and the end cap will settle into and grip the finish tightly.

The same issue comes up if you have been hunting in a real gully washer and the wood takes on a little moisture. (less of an issue with the late "plastic" factory finish which is pretty darn water tight)
