This one's kinda sad, or maybe not: someone hit my blog via a search for "repair of hotchkiss quick firing gun." Good luck with that! Befriend a machine shop or a well-equipped gunsmith; you'll be glad you did.
I was about six pages of results in; I'm gonna hafta go back and find out if there's maybe a tutorial....
Just returned from a short scooter ride. Roads were dry (ish), temps are up and everyone's home watching a sporting event, so why not? Sure have missed riding that little percolator!
