    Sneider 8ga Hammerless

    A friend of mine has a Sneider 8ga hammerless which I think has a broken firing pin, it fails to return. Does anybody know anything about them, or know of any competent gunsmiths who can repair, and possibly restore it

    I HIGHLY recommend your friend have it appraised by a professional who deals in antique shotguns before doing ANYTHING to it.

    I can't put my finger on the article but I read somewhere less than 200 hammerless 8G were made. The OP's friend owes me a nice Christmas present if true.

    Bringing this thread back up. This gun is going to a very qualified gunsmith tomorrow who is going to make a replacement firing pin and go through the whole gun and provide appraisal paperwork. Next on the list is to try and locate 5-10 rounds of 8ga birdshot.
