I bought this a few yrs ago from some ol gal, anyways. I looked it over, seems tight but the bolt pullback is very stiff. I stuck a piece of paper in the bolt and fire it, and FookifIcantell if the pins decent, in fact I really dont know how to tell, that said junior stuck a cb cap in it and on the 3rd pull it fired. SO how hard is it to fix a little gun like this? Is It a dy deal? I know its not worth much but its to cool not to get in working order. I dont plan on touching the patina.

i would try pb blaster as on the spring if possible as a last resort. after that if it was me,,i would take the barrel off to see if it the bolts piece assy will come off or dissamble. check the spring and maybe dress the pivots with emery cloth too. hell soak it in carb clean overnight or boil it like a dirty carb. if that dont do it,i would think it has to be the spring.

I got it, firing pin is broken and had been refiled down. I duno if a gunsmith can remake the part or if a guy could maybe hit it with a little weld and take a flat file to it. problem is how do ya figure out how long the pin lwas to begin with. I got no idea how junior got it to fire cause the pin is just has to barely hit it.

I'd have someone who knows about guns look at it. Maybe there is something about the gun that is unsafe and someone filed the firing pin to keep it from being shot. Any decent gunsmith could tell you if the pin was fixable or make a new one. Not many things I wont work on but real old guns is one of them things I leave to the pros even a misfire with a .22 can kill someone. I take guns apart and service them thats about it for me.

What caliber? Manufacturer and model? I don't recognize the model, you can take the pertinant numbers to a gun shop and see about buying a new pin. If they are unobtanium, you might be able to get it fixed. It would be easier to tell if I could see it close, but I no longer have access to the gunshop so that wouldn't help anyway. The protrusion is usually about 1/16", if its too long it will puncture the cap.

its an old quackenbush, as for safe to shoot its bolt mates to the barrel good and its solid.Barrel itself is huge, IF it were I shotgun I wouldnt even try to shoot but shorts or cb caps im not to worried.

There's got to be a spec sheet for it somewhere here on the internets. What's the make and model?

No matter what, it needs more rake.

It is a mostly unknown manufacturer. H M lived till 1933, and they produced ammo till the 60s, but apparently closed down in 05. He only produced a few types of rifles, with variations of each. There is a book called Quackenbush Guns that can help you determine which variant you have and when it was made. Being so unusual, wall hanger may be the best option.
