Re: Bernadelli hammer gun

I have had two Italian hammer guns, one cheap one expensive, both were good shooters and well made. My current hammer gun is a Toz66 built in the USSR
The Italian guns were much better finished and the hammers didn't require eleven men to cock them. :D

Re: Selling a gun that aint performingz

Personally I would sell such a gun with the proviso that it may require a new firing pin which is reflected in the price.
If I went to the trouble of fixing it then the price would go back up.
