Nic link, Jan

 http://thebladeblog-ulf.blogspot.nl/

!! . Thank you . !!
.
I've a fondness for autos & have representative samples of most approaches to auto locking systems.

While buttonlocks are really cool .. and I've a few of them .. I've had every one I own open accidentally at some point .. i.e. when not intended too.

I've grown to appreciate the leverlock for it's comparative SAFE locking system.

.

!!! .. Nice article .. !!!

Jan in Germany and Italy where autos are legal, these are common. In the past I have had several lever-locks which were 12/16 ga pullers. They are not my favorite so they went in a trade to a straight lever-lock. Great topic Jan....great web site.

Ron,

I have seen multiple types of shell pullers but i have never seen them as lever locks

Thanks for posting that link, Jan. While I'm not a shooter I am nonetheless a man who admires a beautiful stag handle knife. And, good lord! That blog certainly has some gorgeous examples of stag handled knives that were designed with a specific purpose in mind - To extract shotgun shells. 

I enjoyed looking at all of the pictures as well as reading some really interesting information about the history of those knives. Good Stuff!

Glad it's working again for you, John.

A little light oil (3 in one ..or.. sewing machine oil ..or.. equivalent) is certainly suggested / required at this point. I'd stick to a light oil .. a high quality sewing machine oil works great !!

Comment by Clint Thompson on February 2, 2016 at 9:04

John...

I am glad you solved this problem and that we could help. Remember WD40 is a penetrating substance which does repel water...as does oil but is not a great lubricant. So keep and eye on the action. One drop of oil on the locking points, both open and closed, will prevent the wearing of the release point/s. Remember, cut long, deep and continuous.
