    After 50 years I have found my first shotgun. Marlin model 90- f-3301.
    The last thing I remembered about it was that both barrels fired and knocked me down. After cleaning, removal of the stock to oil and grease I had the same problem. If I fired the front trigger first and then the rear everything was ok. But if I fired the rear trigger first and then the front, both barrels went off. This time it didn't knock me down but left me a black and blue shoulder. Does anyone have any suggestions. Thank You.
    To tell you the truth, I no longer fear recoil after this experience and went out and bought a Moisin 31/59.

    Take it to a qualified Gunsmith for repair ...OR always fire the front trigger first !

    Only load one barrel at a time. (I just tell it like I would do it)

    id bring it to a gunsmith even if you can still fire just one barrel at a time by using the front trigger first it could only be a matter of time before both triggers will shoot both triggers at the same time.
