Lyman defect ?
I have two Lyman Deerstalkers. I bought one NIB from a member here. I put a swivel sling on it, as the sling-stays came factory on the gun. PROBLEM THOUGH. The sling-keep for the upper, is attached to the bottom of the ramrod barrel holder, it stripped an d pulled off the gun this past Saturday. I also bought a Deerstalker a couple years ago, and the guy handed me the stripped out ramrod barrel along with the gun. It appears this is a flaw ? They should have thought of a better way to deal with the pressure a sling can cause, instead of trying to hold the barrel with a cheap, way too small screw ?
Did this happen to anybody else ?
