Reassembly Cocking issue with 1906 Hammer Gun Help
Posted by Richard Ranney on October 15, 2021, 7:27 pm
Iím finishing up my 1906 restoration and Iím having an issue. I can cock and release both hammers manually with the side plates manually removed. Some time back I made them work assembled to the gun. Now I canít. I see no instructions for a hammer gun on the FAQís. Iíve pushed the triggers forward like Dave Williamson noted a while back (thank you). My questions are this:
The barrels are off the gun. To reassemble the side plates what position should the top lever be in? Iíve tried both.
Should the hammers be cocked?
Oh I forgot. Whatís the procedure for putting the forend back on? I tried but canít get it on and felt like I was going to break something and didnít want to force it. Nothing on FAQís for that on Hammer Guns.
Iím just frustrated. Thank you.
