Rob, I only have experience bending 2 sets. No issues. The solder is very soft and mallable. If the solder joints were marginal or already loose, I would expect trouble.

Thanks Chuck. I would think solder could get brittle with age, probably not prudent to try on a vintage gun.

Rob, actually the first set i straightened was a damarcus set that looked like it had been slammed in a car door. It had to beat least 1900 or older. I dont think solder mechanical properties change much if at all in 100 years.

I bent a set of Ithaca Flues barrels that shot way low. I put them on blocks of wood at the ends and bounced my weight on them with one foot. It took quite a bit to set the bend. They kept springing back but I got them bent and problem solved. It is very hard to detect the bend. It doesn't take much to move the pattern. And no harm to the solder joints.

I will say that I usually wouldn't resort to such crude methods but the Flues came in a box lot from a farm auction. My father's paid six dollars for the lot.

If you mount the gun and you see no rib but you see the front bead and it fires 10" high of point of aim what do you do? If you bend the barrels down would the front bead drop below the horizon? Same thing if you lower the comb. I am confused. What to do besides selling it? It happens to be a single barrel so no worries about solder.

I've fixed that situation, Milt, by replacing the front bead with a bigger( taller) one. Someone on here suggested that about a year ago, and I tried it. It worked like a charm! Even though we don't look at the bead when shooting, it is our reference point in our peripheral vision. It is well within our field of view.

I wouldn't expect that to lower it 10", though. Seems like mine came down about 4-5", which was enough for me on that particular gun. I've never had a gun that shot high when I couldn't see any rib. My problem, when they shoot high, is usually that they are stocked without enough drop for me, and I see way too much rib.

That was me with my Ithaca 37 that I bought maybe ten years ago. Kutter suggested the fix and it worked moving the pattern for me down 4" or so. I always read what he has to say.

This gun is a friends gun and it is also a modle 37. It has a vent rib(mine is plain not that it should matter) and 30" barrels also. He patterned it when I fixed the FAIR Iside. We were shocked. When you look down the gun all you see is a bead.

I will start with a large bead. Do you recall which one you bought? Maybe it is larger than the one I bought. I found it difficult finding large beads.

I don't remember the dealer, but I went on eBay and did a search. You will find a guy that has all different sizes and thread pitches. He is who I ordered from. Very low prices and very fast service. I think I have bought from him twice. If you want to wait I will look in my shop tomorrow and see if I still have one in the package. Maybe his name will be on it. But, in lieu of that, I will go eBay now and see if I can find which one it was. If I do, I'll post a link here for you.

Ok, all his ads look like this one, Milt. Just scroll through them until you find the size you want.

Best, SRH

I tried highlighting the link as if to copy but when you right click to copy next line below copy is a GoTo "link", just click it & comes right up without having to copy & paste it in the HTTP; line.
