Ithaca model M-49R question...
Hello, new to this forum. Been looking for a good gun forum to join... This is the one..!
I got a couple questions about some guns that were mine as a kid, and my father has had position of them for awhile and recently passed away and I got them back... Some of them not in the best shape, not worth any kind of money, but mean a lot to me as they were my first guns as a child.
One of the rifles is a Ithaca M-49R 22 cal repeater. The rifle was taken apart to clean and was never put together. Not many parts were taken out of it, just the slide to chamber the rounds , the firing pin, the Hammer Spring (that goes inside the stock? ) I have ALL the parts according to a parts list I seen on the net, but I had put it back together and something just doesn't seem correct. It seems the hammer doesn't go far enough to properly hit the firing pin. And the hammer spring I think I put in upside down but not sure. I got the gun to cycle , but the action just doesn't seem right. Does anyone have a schematic or pictures on how to put it back together properly?
I would take it to a gunsmith but not sure if the gun is even worth as much as it would cost to have it reassembled. (as I said, there is a total of 4 parts taken out, the hammer spring, firing pin, the slide for the action, and the slide itself) Any help would be greatly appreciated.
The other guns I got back from him are a Ithaca Single shot M-49 (again, not a collector item, just special to me) a single Shot Ithaca 20 Gauge shotgun, a Marlin Semi auto 22 cal. And the last is a Winchester model 1894 30-30 rifle. I just want to get them in working condition for my kids as they will all go to my son. I thank anyone all in advance for assistance, and hope to become a valued member of the Forum.
