when the gun is empty it breaks open easy, when I shoot two shells it breaks open very hard.I hope someone can help before I take it to a gun smith

I took it in to Total Gun Service in Trevor Wi for a good cleaning

I have the same gun in the same gauge. It is slightly harder to open after both barrel are fired, slightly. I would have it checked out by a gunsmith you trust. Don't give up on it. It's great little gun. I have very long arms and find it difficult to get a 20 gauge that fits me. This one shoulders almost as good as my Rem1100 and bust clay and live birds equally well. Sweet little shooter. Good Luck!!

I bought it for my wife,to begin with she is left handed the gun is not.I'm going to take it to a gunsmith this week.Even the lever is hard to push open after you shoot it.It is very hard for her to open,if the cleaning doesn't work I will sell it.

Question? How much harder...a little or a lot....I have the same problem with a side by side with hammers and it opens hard. This has nothing to do with recocking, it has to do with no room for the fired shells to expand.....action tolerances are to tight.

Yes, as posted, you do 'recock' it after the firing, it's supposed to be some degree harder to cock. Is it firing normally otherwise?

There may be no issue. The guys at shotgunworld.com may be help.

THere's nothing wrong with your gun, after you fire the gun opening the barrels cocks the trigger springs which means it requires more force.
