The rubber armoring is "melting" or getting all sticky

I have had my binoculars in the box and the case for over a year and I just recently pulled them out to do some viewing and the black rubber armoring is melting or becoming all sticky and it gets all over my hands and fingers and I have to use Goof Off Citrus Cleaner to clean my hands and fingers. What happened?

Yes, you can. You would need to hook the cable box up to the tv using an HDMI cable for it to work. Hope it helped!

I have a hand gun made by Hopkins and Allen Arms and the serial number is 9491. I would like to know the year it was made. Thank you

You would have to know the model and variation. There are H&A collector's reference works that might tell you. Mid 1910s would be a good guess.

The approximate age can be determined by what action it has. Sauer made a couple hundred different models.

I have a single shot 20 ga.and the stalk is broke can i get replacement stalk and four arm

Sounds like a nice project to repair and pass along to grand kids. You will likely need to provide some pictures if you want to identify it or take it by a knowledgeable gunsmith or collector. replacement "stocks" and forearms are available. A good craftsman could even fabricate replacements from scratch. Good luck.

check the condition of the gear teeth in the gear box. check that the selector is full engaging the gears (rust-corrosion etc). IF you have a rubber mounted prop then check that the rubber hub is in good condition

How do you uncock a stevens model #311 series h doublebarrel shotgun that is not loaded

1: point it in a very safe driretion
2:do not touch the triggers
3: slide the safy back , toward but. that is safe mode.
4: press the lever to the right and brake the action
In normal condition the shells will be pulled back to a point you can remove them.
Remember safe on! do not touch the triggers.
the safe is behind the break lever.. If you an not break the action, common if the gun has been loaded for some time the shells can be stuck. suggest you get it to a GUN SHOP.
