I hoping you can help me, I just bought a Mossberg O/U and it's been fired
about 10 shot prior. I find opening the breach being stiff to open. I'm not
sure if it's due to it being hardly used. I can same that I made sure that
it was was lubed with the proper bearing grease. Can you tell me if I have
an isssue or it just a breaking in period that I have to wait for the
breach to drop easly when I push the lever?
