Rebuilding a Grade 7 NID
This gun had some "high mileage" on it. It was off the face, opening on firing and the hammers and sears had worn into their pivot pins. A new hinge pin, bolt and hammer and sear pins were made and fitted. The sear engagement was also adjusted to correct a two pound left-side trigger pull. Ithaca, and every other American maker, advertised that their guns "never shoot loose". I guess never isn't as long as they thought.
