    I'm no gunsmith, but any time I have a failure to lock back it comes down to two things. First,
    weak magazine spring / dirty magazine doesn't push up well enough. Second, insufficient lube on
    slide lo...

    Hammer and sear is the cause of my doubles and probably the cause of Winds. When I measured the
    gap per the Model 50 manual, I got 0.015" and the reference says max 0.003". To make sure, I
    checked Win...

Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect. Generalizations are (almost) always bad.

Welcome, Balota, as the newest Mod !!!
