My 45/70 springs the lever partially open when it is fired. This happens with relatively mild factory loads, but
is much worse when "heavy" loads are fired. The rifle is pretty new; I am the original owner, and it has never
had high-powered hand loads fired through it. The heaviest charges that I have used are Buffalo Bore's factory
ammo. The rifle has done this since it was brand spanking new.
Any of you guys familiar with this problem? I changed the lever latch plunger and that didn't help much.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
Anthing you think is a big bore
