    C Sharps 1874 with a loose trigger

    Like the title says my (hammer) has a lot of side play but the screw is tight .Is there a shim needed or is it something else going on here ,I did send a message to Sharps but would like to get a jump on this if possible /Thanks in advance/Ed

    That"s the plan ,but that"s not till tomorrow as I know nobody waits for me to call on a weekend at C Sharps ! Like I said I was just trying to find from one of you more experienced BP shooters if anyone had this happen and what they did about it . Not exactly a patient man and I only noticed it Friday and if it got fixed today I could be shooting again (tomorrow) ! Anyway I guess it"s not a common problem as there"s not a whole lot of opinion on it /Thanks for looking /Ed
