Fie tex .22 pistol
I have a FIE Tex .22 pistol I bought 34 years ago. Does anyone know anything about these pistols. It locked up on me so I had to take it apart and free everything up. What I realized that if you tighten up the two brass screws it tight it puts the gun on a bind. Is this normal with these old pistols

Sounds like one for c3shooter.

Cute revolver. The bolt, pawl, or cylinder could be worn after all these years. Some parts are going to be hard to find.

It should be fairly easy to work on.

These people have some parts, but the kit you need is sold out:

No it is not normal. Though it is normal for that particular pistol to have problems. How are we supposed to know which two screws you are referring to? danf_fl is likely correct about wear causing the problem. Though in that revolver the wear could easily be in the frame of the gun also. I'm sure you know that it is not worth fixing unless you are emotionally attached to it.

e parts I'm going to purchase for it. It's a cheap cowboy gun to go out with and just plink cans with. My kids saw it for the first time yesterday and they were in awe with it. Thought it was more cool then my Glocks I just bought and they are 18 and 19 years old. Go figure

I've had several FIE imported SA 22's yrs back-
As long as you keep your investment in the $100 -$150 range i'd say fix'er up & shoot :)

What parts do you need? I have something similar but the frame is cracked so I have some parts you can have at no charge. PM me pics of what you need.

Well I appreciate the offer but I've already ordered the parts for it. Was surprised this place had everything I needed. And not a bad price it for the next poor sole that comes along. If I didn't already order the parts I would of jumped on your offer. Thanks

Where did you find parts at? I'm looking for a bolt for my Hawes .357
