Maintenance time

Going through my safe the other day and pulled out my 21-4. It only comes out a couple weeks a year, during deer season, and then gets wiped down and put back in the safe.

I checked the cylinder, closed it up, and tried to dry-fire it. Somehow in the last eight months the trigger weight went to north of 20lb.

Looked at things a bit more closely, and it seems the cylinder isn't turning freely. I suspect there's some oil that gummed up on the crane. Tonight's project: detail strip and scrub.
