ipduck Posted December 9, 2007 Share Posted December 9, 2007 Have a problem that started this morning hunting, would like a quick fix if anyone has a suggestion. Anyway, gun is not firing. I believe the problem is with the hammer. The firing pin is not hitting the shells. There does not appear to be any problems with pin or the action as I fully disassembled it already, and reassembled it, still no mark on unspent shells. However, the hammer which flips up and hits firing pin in this case appears to be loose. As the trigger is pulled it releases and hits pin, but I believe without enough force. After the hammer is in the fired position it no longer is under tension and will flop back and forth. I believe it should "automatically" return to unfired position if another shell is chambered or it should stay in contact with pin if no other shell is chambered. If anyone has something useful or has had this happen please let me know. Thanks dk Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
