Yesterday I had to go to a neighboring town to get license for my Solstice. The licens in our town is beneath contempt for how disorganized and slow they are. 2-3 hours to get plates..I don't think so. Anyway, down in Salem where I went there is a big, pretty darn decent pawn/gun/reloading supply/outdoor equipment shop. It's never safe for me to go in there but I don't get to Salem very often, though it's only 22 miles. Welll...I saw a rack of about a dozen percussion revolvers, Colt and Remington's from little pocket pistols to the 1860 Army and 1858 Remington. They even had two 1849 Pocket Pistols or, as they're also known, the Baby Dragoon. I carried one of those with a 6 inch barrel as my trap line revolver for a couple years and always did like the little pea shooter. I got to looking at one.....wrong move on my part... and it accompanied me out the door along with 1,000 large rifle primers. I knew it was rough internally, you could feel it. Got home, tore it down and on the back of the hammer, where the main spring rides on the roller, there was a fairly large, by comparison, piece of flashing from the casting that never got ground/filed/polished off before assembly. The main spring was riding over that and felt as if it added two mor clicks to the four there normally is. Really felt weird. I cleaned that up, took a bit off the tip of the main spring, lubed it up good...it was a bit dry...put the little devil back together and it's like new money! Here it is next to one of my 1860 Army's for perspective. AIN'T IT CUTE!!!!....lol! Oh, this one has a 4 inch barrel rather than the 6 inch of my previous one. Thought I had some balls or a mold.....nope. Evidently sold the mold with the other revolver and melted down the 1/0 buck I also used in it. Soooo...gotta order a mold.
