Condition of you shotgun

 

Always ensure that any shotgun you intend to use is in a safe and sound condition.

The following defects may render your shotgun unsafe.

 

Denting in the Barrel: May be caused by a fall or a knock against a hard object. Can cause a restriction in the barrel which will result in excessive pressure in the barrel.

 

Bulging in the Barrel: A bulge is the weakening of the structure of the barrel.

 

Pitting of the Barrels: Can occur both insde and outsde barrel bores and will result in a weakening of the barrel strength. It is caused by poor maintenance.

 

Raised Ribs: Raised ribs will mean a weakening of the barrel structure.

 

Damaged or Cracked Stocks: A cracked stock may break as a result of recoil and is a hazard to the shooter and anyone in his company.

 

A Loose Action: The action should be correctly aligned to the barrels and should be nice and crisp and tight.

 

Trigger Pulls: Trigger pulls should be just right. A hair trigger is an obvious danger. Trigger pulls that are too heavy will result in misses and are also a potential danger.
Have them adjusted by a competent gunsmith.

 

Proof Marks: Ensure that your gun is in proof. Understand the proof markings on any shotgun you use.

 

Chambers: Understand the chamber length of your shotgun. Do not fire cartridges which are longer or carry a heavier load than was intended for use in your particular shotgun.

 

Have faults rectified immediately. Your shotgun should be inspected byu a gunsmith.

 

Never load or attempt to use a shotgun which you know has developed a fault.
Warn others about the fault if they have access to the weapon.
