Everything looks good except I didn't find that spring that goes on bottom in front of trigger.

I screwed up, I removed the 3 side screws when taking frame apart. I should have done them one at a time, when taking hammer out. It would have been easier to put back together. Luckily I had the videos. What did they do 10 years ago?

It's as clear as I could get it.

Hondo - No argument with anything you stated!

Just givin' Berserker a little visual aid...




NOTICE:

This is the parts illustration that shows the pawl spring and plunger 27 & 28 improperly oriented. The plunger 28 goes into the hole first then the spring 27 goes in on top of it. Be sure not to pinch the spring when reinstalling the grip frame.

Back together. Complete tear down. I put the original cylinder pin back in. I had to fight to get the belt mountain out. Maybe my original problem was not lining up the indention/ groove on the pin. Not sure.

I still need the spring and plunger in front of trigger. Midway does not have the plunger, just spring. The Cylinder Latch Spring and plunger. But wanted to get it back together while fresh in mind.

Magazine articles for the last 50 years, and trail and error.

Something is wrong.

The cylinder has a tight spot when rotating by hand, half cocked. Is that the cylinder latch spring and plunger??

Even turning by hand is tight.

The one in front of the trigger or behind the trigger?

Cylinder Latch Spring and plunger is only for new models. Your old model has a coil with two legs on it shown to the right in Hossbreed44's photo.

No. Did you check the cyl/barrel gap?

Roll the old cyl pin on a flat surface and make sure it's not bent, although not likely.

Barrel side of trigger. I put the spring that the pivot goes through with the two legs. Hooked one in the front in the hole.

As soon as put cylinder pin, it will not rotate. Back to old stock one.
