TDK would have been a good candidate for a checkup, but he's moved out of the metromess and out to someplace fit for human habitation. You missed him by a couple of months or so.

Euless Guns on Hwy 10 in Euless has a couple of great gunsmiths.
You can trust them to check it out.

Absolutely not! You'll need to use another non-tox shot like bismuth, hevi-shot classic doubles, or RST non-tox loads.

The unfortunate thing about vintage doubles is the limitations on what you can shoot. That said I thoroughly enjoy shooting my vintage English doubles. The 1894's are a gem in the American gun lineup!
