    So will the gun stay at half cock? If so you can cap it and then go back to half cock and should be fine. Just hold on to the hammer so it don't contact the primer. You may be able to get a new trigger assembly from T/C if you can get the model # and contact them.

    On my renegade, I can cap with the stick style capper on half cock. You have to angle it in to the hammer well just a tad to get the cap on, then the capper pulls straight out.

    If you are careful, capping on full cock is not all that dangerous. You do have to be very careful when releasing the hammer back to half cock.
