Colt 1903 Pocket Hammerless.
My first one of these, after all these years of refinishing, and yup...she is a pain on reassembly. To post pics, I see (as I suspected), a webhost site, (photobucket, etc. ) Man...I wish these forums would just lift them direct from your computer, like FB....but I can see the dangers. The data I have found here is very good and helpful. I have the main body of the pistol reassembled, but its the mainspring thats giving me a problem. I know the short tab goes forward, but does the mainspring fold ride all the way down in the bottom of the grip saftey, just above the pin hole, or does it ride up higher in the grip saftey. I also found the if you insert the magazine in place, and tape it in place, with masking tape, it will elimate the flopping around of the sear. If I can get the mainspring problem (placement) figured out, I think its all done. Did a 1000 grit finish on this one after pit removal, looks dang nice. Its the reassembly thats a bugger...thanks all. Jeb.
