Violated my rule. $155 '76 that needed work. Had a poorly repaired stock, cycled stiff, missing rear sight elevator, that was it. Had the hood and the hammer extension. Went home, cycled 5x times with ammo, hammer went to halfcock 2x, fullcock 3x, all rounds fired with good, centered primer strikes. I took it apart. Everything was tight/new/with no oil. Screws unbuggered except for barrel band around forend. Hammerspring is untouched. That is just grease on the receiver. The gun is new. The carrier does not even rotate easily on just its bare screw. Even with oil on the screw. Could not get the triggerplate in. Binds an inch forward of the trigger in the shiny spot. Regardless of how I try to get it in. Took the carrier out to make sure nothing was in there. Still binds. Bigger hammer?????? Really big hammer?????? Don't want to bend the triggerplate. If/when this goes back together, I will take off the flat hammer extension to see if that affects cocking.
