I am totally new to LC Smith. I have an old model hammerless gun that is totally apart. Stock was cracked and I fixed that, but it has a broken toplever spring. It was missing a few parts which I think I have run down. I searched the threads on toplever springs, but didn't find the answer I am looking for. Basically I have a few questions: What is the best way to compress the spring so that I can install the toplever? If a special tool is needed, what is it, and where can I find it? What position should the safety button be in during reinstalltion of the trigger plate? I have read many posts on how difficult reassembly is, and various methods (hole in the stock, pilot bolt for the toplever, etc.) Any basic advice would be appreciated. |
Thanks for your time.
PS: There is not a doublegun gunsmith that I am aware of for 120 miles, so telling me to take it to one won't really help.
