Went to the range to-day for the first time this year to try out my new to me 1895 Cowboy. This is the first time out with it so was gung ho to go. My question, is it normal for the leaver to open after shooting the gun.

Since this rifle is probably not a Cowboy Action Shooter, I'd recommend replacing the lock-up spring with an OEM product...........or you could pull the spring and stretch it a bit. I had the same problem with mine, and replacing the spring with the original took care of the problem.

Thanks guys I know it's not my reloads as I am only shooting 13.2 gr. of Unique. I was shooting off sand bags so I know I wasn't holding it very snug.
