Flintlock Pocket Pistol
I have recently been given a flintlock boxlock slab-sided pocket pistol, by Johnson of London, dating to about 1805, which is in nice condition but not working. I am 73 years old, and not a gun collector, but have taken on a restoration project to keep my mind active and my fingers nimble.
When the mechanism is stripped down it is pretty obvious that the hammer spring is missing but, despite hours of research, I cannot find a schematic for the workings of this pistol....so I do not know what the spring looks like, or where it locates within.
I would appreciate any help offered on where to find a schematic, and am prepared to pay for both it and postage costs.
My thanks in advance.
