Default Help!!!!

Hey guys.. I'm new to Firearmstalk... So sorry if I seem a little new..

So. I went to the shooting range to day and shot about 100 shells through my model 459 smith and wesson.. I took it home to clean..

I get home.. Read some blasted article on how to take it apart... I accidently remove the trigger pin and all hell breaks loose.

The trigger won't engage back!!! The gun will no longer fire at all!!!


I try to pull the trigger and it just pulls like normal, but it doesn't engage anything. It's not limp, but it doesn't make the gun go off or even make anything move...

Take it to a gunsmith and have it repaired. If you had to read an article to learn how to field strip your gun you are in no way qualified to repair the trigger mechanism yourself.

BTW, the safety is off?

It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." - George Washington

You could always look around YouTube. There are *many* videos on guns posted there. Keep in mind, most of the people who post these aren't qualified gunsmiths.

I don't know how complicated that gun is or what your mechanical skills are, but you might want to go ahead and take it to a gunsmith as Jpyle suggested.

No "You Tube" video. Just swallow your pride and take it in to a professional. Call around first and see what they'll charge you. It's something simple, but if you don't know, you don't know.

Take it to your local gunsmith and have him reassemble it correctly. While you're there, ask him to show you how to properly field strip it.
Sometimes you earthlings REALLY amaze me!

Listen to the Bear.
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”Samuel Adams

Probably a moot point, but did you have the magazine in the gun when you tried pulling the trigger?

Yep, The Bear is wise and he eats rugers.

Get it to a gunsmith, he's gonna make fun of you though.
