Just purchased a Lanber 2097 Wont be able to shoot it till after Thankgiving. Im curious about the barrel selection. Does the gun shoot with two pulls of the trigger or do I select barrel pull trigger then select the other barrel and pull trigger again, Upon dry firing it does the later. Ive been shooting semi autos and pumps all my life

There are two types of barrel selectors, inertial and mechanical, both automaticly select the other barrel after the first is fired. The differance is the inertial selector needs the recoil from the first shot to switch to the other barrel. If, after you check to make sure the gun is unloaded, point it in a safe direction any way, then check again to be really sure its unloaded, you squeeze the trigger twice and hear both hammers fall it has a machanical barrel selector, if you hear the first hammer fall but not the second give a good thump to the recoil pad then try the trigger again, you should hear the second hammer fall and you would have an inertial barrel selector. Most shotgunners try to shot the bottom barrel first because the recoil is more straight back which most shooters have an easier time controlling for a faster fallow up shot.

After I posted this I found another post that said my gun has an inertia trigger which requires the gun to be shot to get the 2nd trigger to work. After tapping the gun butt on the floor after the first pull of the trigger the second trigger now works in the dry fire mode. I guess Im a happy customer. No further replies needed. Thanks

Being that you are not used to a hinge gun make sure that you lube the hinge pins and the front of the receiver where it rubs on the front end iron with some kind of grease. Never, Never work the action dry !!! You will love your 2097
