  1. I recently purchased a rifle from a shooter getting out of the game. A Uberti 66 with short stroke kit in it (not sure which gen, but shorter than my 3rd gen). If it matters; the rifle is running Pioneer Gun Works tension rod lifter and carrier springs. The gun is a put together parts gun, but I have taken it apart and checked it over and everything looks pretty good inside. Here are my issues... The rifle would not fire consistently - hammer drop was light and slow. I adjusted the strain screw and retightened the mainspring. Most of my rounds are going off now - but I am still getting 1 out of 20 fail to fire. Perfectly loaded ammo that performs flaw less in every other rifle and pistol. Not an ammo problem. And the hammer drop still seems slow compared to my Miroku 73 and Codymatic. But the lever effort to cycle with the mainspring cranked this tight is ridiculous. The mainspring appears to be stock and I have no more adjustment available. Seems if the spring had simply lost its oomph, lever effort would be nothing; so should I just order a new spring, swap the spring and see? or am I missing something? 2nd issue is (other than lever effort) the rifle cycles smoothly empty. Cycles smoothly with ammo; except every 15-20 rounds - one will hang up and again, take a ridiculous amount of effort to eject and cycle. I normally run my lever guns with a single finger in the lever; when this happens, I have to use significantly more effort to operate the lever. Again, clean, sized ammo - not an ammo issue. But if it were a chamber issue, seems it would occur every round. Ideas? I'm about to stuff the rifle in the gun safe and order something new.
