  • Shotgun question

    I was lubing and checking shotguns tonight and I found that the spring seats (or flanged oilites) are facing in both directions. I checked the book and it appears that the flanged portion faces the rear of the machine (thus the name spring seat) However about 80% of the shotguns have the flanged portion facing the other way. I know its no big deal, but I was just wondering what you guys think and if it really makes a difference as to which way it should face. I have always put the flangeg portion inside the housing and so have my co-workers, but now that I look closely, its incorrect! Oh well, you learn something new everyday!

    I'm surprised you haven't started wearing through the hosing. I would take the time to put the seat in properly. Also surprised the shotguns lock properly....if they are.

      I always run mine with the flat part next to the housing, I have seen them cause a bind on some shotguns if you run the flange inside the housing.

          The part is a spring seat...designed to keep the outer spring in its place. The book is correct on this one...not that the book is always
