Doc Holloman Posted May 22 Share Posted May 22 I recently picked up an old Model 12 at the local gun store. As both of my other 12s were broke I figured I could use the backup and the price was unbeatable (I could easily part it out for a lot more.) Problem is the gun is STIFF. It requires much more effort to cycle the action than either of my other 12s or either of my 97s. I'm not referring to an action slide lock problem, but the actual amount of physical effort required to pull the slide back and push it forward. I had my local gunsmith clean it when I bought it, but how well he knows 12s is an open question. Any suggestions on loosening this old warrior up?
