Rifles and Shotguns / Help with a Franchi I-12
« Last post by CDBank on November 13, 2014, 12:54:23 AM »
I am needing some help getting my shotgun up and running again.
So this is the story: I left for two years on my mission and my franchi shotgun was left in my dads safe with the action open.
the problem: When firing it does not eject the round, when done manually it doesn't do well sliding the next shell into the chamber and the bolt does not close without me having to apply force.
My hypothesis: The inertia driven system of the Franchi I-12 is based on the spring under the hand guard. I think that after leaving the bolt open for so long it has lost its strength.  I dont know how easy that is to repair? Or where I would get one?
Am I on the right track? What can I do to fix it?
or if i'm out of my league repairing it at home, where should i go to fix it, and how much?

O'lo Utah Firearm Owners,

I am glad that I was able to source out this website for fellow Utah gun owners. My preference to shoot are 1911's .45acp firearms. I currently own 5 of them. My avatar is my first 1911, a Para Warthog, she was a Regal SS Model but I got her cerakoted in Midnight Blue w/Burnt Bronze accents. My other Para is an Elite Ionbond full size.I was able to score a safe queen NBF a Para C7.LDA. I also have two Rugers, P345 & SR45. And on the 28th I acquire my first wheel-gun, a S&W 625-8 Professional Jim Miculek Series. .45acp of course. Now, I just need to acquire a handful of speed loaders and ton of moonclips  :D

Would someone be kind enough to advise me of some gun ranges in the Pleasant Grove, Lehi, American Fork area. I prefer indoor ranges but I am also eager to shoot open as well.

Thank you for assistance.

All the best,

~ Seraph67 ~

Howdy. I'm moving to UT for my job, so I'm here to keep up with the local shooting community. I'm from AZ, so I'm very lucky to be moving to another gun friendly state.

I'm especially looking forward to any pistol competitions, particularly steel USPSA or facsimile. If you know of any in the Provo / Draper area, please let me know.

Rifles and Shotguns / Marlin Model 60 trigger problem
« Last post by LiveFreeOrDie on May 19, 2014, 01:19:41 PM »
Inherited this rifle knowing nothing about it's condition. It's an early model 60, tube fed. Trouble is it won't fire and the amount of travel on the trigger doesn't seem to be right. I think the problem is the trigger doesn't pull back far enough and provide enough movement. Before I attempt to take it apart or more than likely replace it I hope someone has any advice on how to verify if there's a problem with the action or the trigger. How far does the trigger mechanism move? Mine seems to only move a few mm, not more than 3/16". I inspected the action which looks fine and can manually trigger the firing pin. Inspected the trigger assembly and can not find anything broken other than the lack of travel. Before I tear it apart or replace it I thought I'd ask for some advice. Searched youtube, google etc and was unable to find anyone with the same problem.
Hello all, I moved to Park City a couple years ago. Hoping some kind locals out there can tell me where to go shooting?  I'm aware of the ranges but looking for outdoor, public lands where shooting is allowed. I'm responsible, don't leave trash and always police my brass. I also wouldn't mind finding some shooting buddies (the responsible and safe kind!) to go with, especially if there are any fellow USMC veterans out there. Thank you!

Greetings from Kearns Utah.
Avid gun rights advocate.

Open carrier 10 + years
Practical Explanation ( For Example ) :- `1st of all can you tell me every single seconds detail from that time when you born ?? ( i need every seconds detail ?? that what- what you have thought and done on every single second )

can you tell me every single detail of your `1 cheapest Minute Or your whole hour, day, week, month, year or your whole life ??

if you are not able to tell me about this life then what proof do you have that you didn't forget your past ? and that you will not forget this present life in the future ?

that is Fact that Supreme Lord Krishna exists but we posses no such intelligence to understand him.
there is also next life. and i already proved you that no scientist, no politician, no so-called intelligent man in this world is able to understand this Truth. cuz they are imagining. and you cannot imagine what is god, who is god, what is after life etc.
for example :Your father existed before your birth. you cannot say that before your birth your father don,t exists.

So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy.
Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life; you'll never find your father.

( now maybe...maybe you will say that i will search my father from D.N.A, or i will prove it by photo's, or many other thing's which i will get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So you have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is your mother. you cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or ur mother ).

if you will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other women then your mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )

same you have to follow real authority. "Whatever You have spoken, I accept it," Then there is no difficulty. And You are accepted by Devala, Narada, Vyasa, and You are speaking Yourself, and later on, all the acaryas have accepted. Then I'll follow.
I'll have to follow great personalities. The same reason mother says, this gentleman is my father. That's all. Finish business. Where is the necessity of making research? All authorities accept Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You accept it; then your searching after God is finished.

Why should you waste your time?
all that is you need is to hear from authority ( same like mother ). and i heard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.
im not talking these all things from my own.

in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.

cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.

tell me are you really happy ?? you can,t be happy if you will ignore these 4 main problem. then still you will be Forced by Nature.

if you really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit sex, No gambling, No drugs ( No tea & coffee ), No meat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )

5th thing is whatever you eat `1st offer it to Supreme Lord Krishna. ( if you know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Supreme Lord Krishna )

and 6th " Main Thing " is you have to Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare ".
If your not able to follow these 4 things no illicit sex, no gambling, no drugs, no meat-eating then don,t worry but chanting of this holy name ( Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra ) is very-very and very important.

Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare " and be happy.

if you still don,t believe on me then chant any other name for 5 Min's and chant this holy name for 5 Min's and you will see effect. i promise you it works And chanting at least 16 rounds ( each round of 108 beads ) of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra daily.
Here is no Question of Holy Books quotes, Personal Experiences, Faith or Belief. i accept that Sometimes Faith is also Blind. Here is already Practical explanation which already proved that every`1 else in this world is nothing more then Busy Foolish and totally idiot.
every `1 is already Blind in this world and if you will follow another Blind then you both will fall in hole. so try to follow that person who have Spiritual Eyes who can Guide you on Actual Right Path. ( my Authority & Guide is my Spiritual Master " Srila Prabhupada " )
if you want to see Actual Purpose of human life then see this link : ( {Bookmark it })
read it complete. ( i promise only readers of this book that they { he/she } will get every single answer which they want to know about why im in this material world, who im, what will happen after this life, what is best thing which will make Human Life Perfect, and what is perfection of Human Life. ) purpose of human life is not to live like animal cuz every`1 at present time doing 4 thing which are sleeping, eating, sex & fear. purpose of human life is to become freed from Birth after birth, Old Age, Disease, and Death.
