  1. Tested last night, when lever is worked enough to load chamber, hammer is completely back and locked into place. It appears the sisue was wood not letting mainspring move all the way (enough to work action but not enough to engage sear) have corrected that, will be testing in the weekend at the rnage (but seems to work of in workshop with live rounds and dummies
  2. I did have the instructions and gave them to my gunsmith, appears he didnt follow last bit of advice about removing wood
  3. Thanks, but tested that last night, doesnt close, in fact think you could hit it with a Hammer (i didnt) and it wouldnt close, pretty sure issue was wood not letting mainspring move all the way (enough to work action but not enough to engage sear)
  4. thanks, ill try that tonight when home
  5. yep, wouldnt be surprised if it needs a good clean. things going ok, covid stopped a oot of shooting but we just had the North island champs with over 80 shooters
  6. thanks reece, yes that is the next step, bt trying not to pull it completely apart although the old girl could probably do with that, its seen a fair amount of work, and i shoot BP so maybe should pull down and give a birthday clean
  7. thanks, hard enough to see what im typing on a phone, and damn auto correct, appreciete the help
  8. Thanks Tully, yes i did this last night and it was, funny thing is the lever seems to work ok even before i did it, ie loads fuine, lifter travels peoperly, just hammer doesnt always stay cocked. Have altered wood so will test fire in the weekend
  9. Early this year I fitted a Pioneer rollerbearing Mainspring to my 66. since the it often seems to no lock the hammer back when working the lever ( about 30% of the time) it still loads properly but hammer needs to be revolved to fire last night I took the stock off and I could see the pin in the mainspring system had created a groove in the woodwork. strange thing is it doesn’t do it all the time any suggestions re what might be causing it _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ *Moderator Edit* Just to make the original post more clear: Early this year I got a roller bearing Main spring fitted to my 66. since then, it often seems to not lock the hammer back when working the lever ( about 30% of the time) It still loads properly but hammer needs to be revolved [manually pulled back] to fire Last night I took the stock off and I could see the pin in the mainspring system had created a groove in the woodwork. Strange thing is it doesn’t do it all the time Any suggestions re what might be causing it?
