Barrels coming apart?

1843 Views 9 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  birdshot
I just got my old Belgian double back from my smith that did some lockup and bore work on the gun and test fired it with what he believed to be hot handloads he bought at a gun show (real smart right?). All of the work he did looks great and he did a fine job but now I can hear debris rattling down the barrel when I flip the gun up and down. What is this? Will it get worse? Do I need to have the barrels re-soldered?

I would think a good smith would use loads he made so he knows exactly how they are made and the pressures. I would certainly have it checked out by another knowledgable smith. It may be nothing, but better safe than sorry. Remember, it's your face next to those barrels when you pull the trigger.
