The revolver on the left is my NMV Talo Birdshead .45 ACP.
The revolver on the right is my 1968 OM 3-Screw BH .30 carbine (factory converted to transfer bar system at some point during its life).
Both revolvers are at the full cock firing position.
Please note the height of the transfer bars in relation to the firing pins.
To those who have much more knowledge here than I do...
Is that the correct position for the transfer bar to be at full cock on the CONVERTED OM BH???
When simulating firing on the OM BH by slowly letting the hammer down with the trigger pulled and held back I can see that the transfer bar only rises a little bit and at the time of contact with the hammer face the firing pin is only 1/2 covered by the transfer bar. Is this normal? (actual dry-fire shows the firing pin protruding thru the frame properly)
Simulating firing the same way on my NMV .45ACP the transfer bar completely covers the firing pin at the time of contact with the hammer face.
Perhaps this is the way all converted OM BH's are???
Or is there something wrong with mine?
Is my firing pin apt to break in this condition? Or maybe the transfer bar might break?
