Yup.......Some gunsmiths specialize in shotguns. Check at your local trap, skeet or sporting clays facility for a reference.Having to break open a loaded shotgun over your knee is dangerous.
take it to a smith.

A late thanks to you guys....sorted out the problem myself. In case anyone has similar issue: Per advice didn't touch the springs. I noticed drag marks from the firing pins on the primers after breaking open the gun. So what I did was pull em out, clean everything up (all old gunk/grease) and I polished the firing pins with a fine grinding wheel and buffer-----rounded out the tips of the firing pins and polished up the sides some and now they slide by without digging in the primers and it works just fine.
I have a cheap Boito Over/Under shotgun. I've heard bad reviews about them but its what I have to work with for the time being. Sometimes it is hard to break open and even have to break it over my knee. I was wondering if anyone can suggest a solution (besides getting a new shotgun). I opened it up and noticed the hammer springs are wound really tight when the hammers are cocked---comrpessed all the way and some snaking in the spring. I was wondering if I took some coils off this would help? Thanks.
