I believe so.
Well- it looks like that at this point, unless you’re in Maine- I can’t do much to help
I will let you know how it comes out..
Having trouble getting it back together. Should the hammer be cocked first?
It is hard to keep everything lined up.
I don’t know much about this firearm- but generally it can be difficult to insert the main spring housing with the hammer back. I’d need to know more about the situation
There is someone on pistolsmiths forum who said they use jigs or something to put it back together. The hammer should be in the unlocked position.
That would be my guess- most guns are damn near me impossible to put back together in the cocked position- think of the 1911
Well it is back together but the hammer won't drop.
Would the search have something to do with it?
I’m assuming that was a typo and you mean sear. There are million reasons why the hammer may not drop- I’d need more info before I could give any advice
What kind on information?
Is it possible that you put it together incorrectly? Are parts not contacting properly? What safeties could be engaged? Pictures could help too
It may have something to do with it not firing with the mainspring parts out. Just taking the hammer pin out and relocating the hammer to the fired position must not have worked. The other person helping said it should go forward by pulling the hammer back and pulling the trigger but it didn"t.
I would try disassembling the hammer and trigger group assemblies and the reassembling them. It’s really difficult to do this without seeing the gun so you might need to take it to a gunsmith
I also suggest taking it to the local gunsmith.
I got tired of it till now. The trigger bar is dropping down and won't let the trigger trip the sear. Looks like maybe the trigger bar spring is worn flat, yet it worked before.
