    facetious replied to a thread 219b firing pin in Single Shot Guns
    Not really ,my best guess would be to shorten the main spring a bit and polish the trigger sear. But my bet is that it has to do with the angle of the sear. If you look at it close you can see the trigger sear is like a see saw and the trigger is on...

    facetious replied to a thread 219b firing pin in Single Shot Guns
    I have "snap cap" I have made by filling the primer pocket with hot glue and trimming it flush. I guess I'll find out if it works. There must be some kind of spring compressor to get the main spring out and back in. Would make it easier to work...

    I should have said that you can see it from the left side but you have to drop it in on the right side. I practiced putting in the old one back in while waiting for the new pins. I got it back in but it was like building ship in a bottle with one...

    For no good reason I got my 219b out off the back of the safe and started messing with it. My wife got it for me at a flea market in the mid 80's for $60.00 and I managed to break the firing pin. I knew a guy going to gun smith school who fixed for...

    How about a SS lever gun .357. And as we are wishing I would like it to have a Hogue stock with a rifle type butt/recoil pad with spacers to adjust length of pull. And it should have a rear peep sight and some kind of hi-viz front sight. A rail...
