oneounceload, Scorch - the lever moves and the gun breaks open (i.e. the barrels tilt forward from the stock) by only about 1/8 of an inch and then stops. Moderate additional pressure doesn't move it more. When I broke it open to see if it was loaded it took no force at all, it practically fell open once the lever was moved. I presume, but don't know, that breaking it open is what cocks it, so could it be that it's just stiff as Scorch suggests and I just need to horse on it more? (It's hard to convey force in writing, but I'd say that once it stuck that I applied, unsuccessfully, about the amount of force it would take to break a 1/2-inch dry oak branch with your hands 18 inches apart.)
