Savage Fox problem

I've had this little 20ga. single trigger for a number of years now and for what little bird huntin' I do,it serves the purpose.Like havin' a 2-shot auto.[^]

BUT!

I almost have to put it across my knee to break it open!

I thought that maybe with a lot of use,it would loosen up,so I sat there in the shop one night and worked it back and forth for about an hour with no improvement.

I also have one in .410(double triggers) and it just falls open when I break it.

Any ideas?

    Dirty. You will need someone who knows doubles to take the action apart and clean the cocking levers

    Get lighter hammer springs from Wolf.
    The firing pins are buried in the primer indents and wont start to retract until the gun is broken open.
    Lighter springs will make an easier job of it.
