Hi! I’m new to this and your patience is very appreciated. I’m a longtime admirer of the sport and new to the world of western guns. I recently bought a Chiappa 1887 and have been having some issues and wondered if some of the veterans on here could help me sort things out. 1) The ejection of shells seems to be unpredictable. Sometimes snap caps come out with velocity and land away from the gun, other times they land at so shallow of a distance that they mark my stock. 2) Shoukd the trigger have wear marks or scratches on it? Also, should the areas around the hammer show signs of wear? 3) Does the lever ever lock in place? If I put it on half-cocked safety, I can still operate the lever. 4) Will attempting to load 7 shells hurt my firearm? I may have attempted this. Thanks in advance for all the help!
