Re: Model Four Coltt Derringer Won't Fire
Could be a few things. Inadequate tension on the mainspring, hammer nose has been flattened, chamber out of round from dryfiring or some other reason why the cartridge isn't seating into the chamber fully. All of those are fairly easy fixes. More difficult would be excessive headspace.
Can you show a picture of the cartridge head after the hammer hits it?
