Re: TC Contender hammer won't cock back
I'm not sure this has anything to do with anything but through the years there were differences between the locking bolts on the various frame/barrel combinations. We are actually on the third version of the Contender, that I know about, with the G2. The first version, I believe, had a one piece locking bolt on the barrel. The next version (mines's from the 1980's) had a two piece locking bolt on the barrel. At one point TC would modify older barrels to the "new" configuration.
Could it be that the the locking bolt is the wrong one (early barrel) and the gun won't completely close and that is keeping the sear/hammer from working correctly?
