Help with S&W Model 39
I just inherited a S&W Model 39 from my grandfather. I took it to the shooting range yesterday and put at least a hundred rounds from it and it performed flawlessly. Afterwards, I field stripped the gun, cleaned and lubricated it.
Upon trying to reassemble it, I have run into a problem, the spring loaded ejector is being held down when I put the slide back on, thus causing the gun to not shoot. I followed the reassembly instructions to the letter but none of them say anything about how to cause the ejector to rise back up.
I have noticed on the slider that there is another spring mounted piece that goes directly over the ejector and I think this is what is causing the problem. Am I correct in assuming this and if I am, how do I fix this problem?
