Shotgun Problem & Gunsmith

Recommended Posts

I was hoping I could get some advice on a good gunsmith in or near the St. Cloud area. I'm having some issues with my Franchi 912 cycling shells. I've had it apart numerous times for cleaning and whatnot. I take very good care of my guns...But for some reason, I can't cycle ANY shells through it. No matter the load, size, etc. Was hoping someone had a recommendation of someone in the St. Cloud area that is reasonable. Thanks in advance.

Jaydog,

I've seriously been looking at getting myself into a new bird gun. I bought the Franchi because at the time it fit my budget and have hunted, 4 hard years with it and haven't had any issues until now. I've already bought myself a new toy this year...(Tikka T3 22-250) I'm not sure if I can convince the wife to upgrade shotguns. Might have to wait until next season.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
