Rance - SASS # 54090 Posted July 8, 2022 Share Posted July 8, 2022 Uberti 1873 .. 18” barrel 38 special.. Pioneer Gunworks Super short stroke.. I was down in the basement dry firing.. no dummy rounds.. rifle works great every time.. Don’t know why but I was messing to close the lever on a new restart of dry firing and I had the rifle upside down to close the lever.. don’t know why but I did.. The rifle completely locked up when trying to close the lever when gun is upside down.. Lever is stuck open.. I didn’t want to force it but when I turn it right side up closes easily.. I have tried (when upside down) pushing the carrier down to know avail.. it doesn’t move.. flip it over works again perfectly.. My other ‘73.. set up the same way closes easily upside down.. Suggestions please on what to look for.. Rance “I ain’t a gunsmith..” Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
