The items "fixed" by CJO are found on several pieces of the gun. One cannot tell if they are only from wear and abuse, or if the original parts might have been soft, brittle, or whatever. I have owned quite a few of the Daly Lindners, and other post war sxs's by Daly and have not seen so many parts worn and broken. Beautiful gun, though.

Daryl, I should let Claudio answer the question more fully but my quick response is that it was a gun regularly used in an area of Canada where guns are tools. And it's been around for 115 years. So things happen. I think the biggest issue is the broken ejector rod and what appears to be subsequent damage to the ejector system. The rest (other then the dents in the barrels) appear to me to be unsurprising wear and tear on a gun that got used. This was no safe queen.

Bill, what a generous offer. You know a trip to Maryland to ogle Lindners will be high on my priority list as soon as the border opens again. And Claudio has mentioned to me that he has missed his trips down south the last year or two. Did not realize the National Firearms Museum was so close to you and John but you are in one of the few areas of the US I have spent zero time in. Looking forward to correcting that. Thank you.

This is a shoe-in for 2020's best thread.

Makes me wonder about the true condition of all those "good acquisitions" in my safe.


My problem lies in reconciling my gross habits with my net income.

Yes.....definitely all of the above but also appears that someone has been at it, fortunately or not the damage to the barrels was enough to cause them to put it away for good, in hope of perhaps having it repaired at a later date, guess that date never came till now....and under new ownership.

So now we move on from the ejectors to having a go at the sear spring I showed you back on the first page:



After an hour or two of work to try to repair the spring we had this:



Claudio thinks it was buggered by someone at some point, although he's not sure why. Suspects they might have been trying to change the trigger pull without really understanding what they were doing.

I think we can all agree.....crap! So it's time to make a new one. To start, a small piece of spring steel gets annealed and attached to a slave plate, squared:



Then the inside and outside of the dovetail insert gets milled, a few thousands oversize to allow proper hand fitting:



Stone the inside while the piece is properly supported.



Mill the double spring taper:

Next it's time to heat and shape:





Then start the close (press) fitting:



Followed by a lot of stoning and polishing:

And we're done! I can't tell which is the new one, can you?



Here's a direct quote from Claudio...." As far as I'm concerned these are some of the most cleverly designed and intricate little springs. It's usually one of the parts I admire most when I look at one of these great Prussian doubles. I have often looked at them and said to myself...hope I never have to make one. Now I think, I hope I never have to make one again! laugh "
