    I have a imp model 7 revolver. It's a .22 short. I had to replace the hammer lock safety and now I'm having problems with it. It works fine in double action but in single action when the trigger is pulled the hammer is catching on the hammer lock safety and not continuing forward to the firing pin. Any thoughts?

    Welcome to FTF. Are you sure you put it back together correctly ?

    Did you compare the two parts to make sure they were exactly the same?

    Don't have a calipur to be exact, but looks the same just eyeballing it.

    Have you shot it or just doing a function test?

    Put it all back together and try it then. If that still doesn't work get back to us.
