This sometimes happens on first firing but sometimes on the second firing.
Has anyone encountered this before with this style of bottom metal?
Does anyone know of a remedy apart from sending it back?
I was thinking a stronger spring (release catch) might remedy the problem.
Any/all ideas and feed back greatly appreciated.
If it looks like I think it does, A stronger spring should help, also if you can shorten the
release lever a little it will not have as much weight and inertia will be redeuced.
Just something to try.
