CAMP VERDE GUN AND REPAIR
COMMON PROBLEMS SHOOTING A SINGLE TRIGGER SIDE BY SIDE SHOTGU
Shooting a single trigger shotgun has some common mistakes that shooters make. This occurs most often when shooting a match and rushing the second shot.
You must release the trigger for it to reset between shots. If you only release it part way, it may double. The recoil from the first shot setting off the second shot.
This condition sounds just like a double shot, there is no noticeable sound difference. This is very common. The way to check to see if it is in your finger or a mechanical condition in
the gun is to take the gun out and shoot many rounds making sure that you release the trigger between shots. If it doesn’t double, then the problem is in you finger
The other condition when rushing a shot is not releasing the trigger enough for it to reset. Then the second barrel will not fire.
The Baikal single trigger guns can double if you only open the lever far enough for the barrel to open. The tuning fork that operates the mechanical trigger does not rise far enough to catch. It then drops down and engages both barrels on the first trigger pull.
