Re: Sear engagement problem?
I disassembled it last night and bent in the sear "finger" on the spring, as well as the disconnector spring (although not as much).
I'd like to say it fixed the problem, but I don't know because I can't get the darn thing back together!!!
When I reinstall the main spring housing, with the grip safety in place, and then I try to reinstall the hammer, I can't get it to go back together properly. Is there some secret I'm missing?
When I took the hammer pin out, I had the hammer at full cock as my instructions said to do. And of course, it shot the hammer assembly across the room. I can tell that the lower strut on the hammer has to compress the main spring in order to go back in, but how do I do it? It's impossible for me to simply push the strut down into the grip and compress the main spring while holding the hammer spur to the rear and trying to line up the holes and insert the hammer pin all at the same time. I tried installing the hammer first, and then the main spring housing, but that's almost impossible to do as well.
How do I get the hammer pinned back into the frame? I'm assuming it has to be at full cock when it goes back in, because I tried it with the hammer in the "fired" position, and it didn't work properly.
