Re: 1976 Colorado Centennial Survey ***Need Help***

Bennett, That's good news, my gold colored box is more appealing than the silver. If your number is 3-digit, then my 2-digit would fit well into that. I am just curious if silver shows up anywhere else. I got a response on the .net forum that says that 123XX is also gold. That puts gold on early and...

1976 Colorado Centennial Survey ***Need Help***

I have two of these guns and decided to sell the later serial number (15156) when I noticed that the Ruger Eagle and Script inside the box lid comes in gold and in a silver color. I want to keep the right box for my low serial number 70, so I need to make sure I am keeping the proper color box. Has ...

Re: I can't find the problem with my O.M. Single Six

Thank you all! I will try to save the hammer, the plunger will not budge (although I tried to loosen it anyway possible). There is a roll pin right above the plunger/spring assembly. I think I will need to drive that pin out in order to free the plunger/spring assembly. I tried a brass punch, it sta...

Jay,
I agree, it's always fun when things turn out well. Now I can't find the parts at Brownell's. The chase continues :arrow:
BTW: I have more guns that need fixing :lol:

Re: I can't find the problem with my O.M. Single Six

THAT WAS THE PROBLEM. I took a hammer and cylinder pawl from a 1956 LW gun and tried it in the 1954 gun. It works perfectly, except the cylinder bore alignment could use a little improvement (but that will come later). Now I will check Brownell's for a replacement plunger (R41) and a plunger spring ...

Re: I can't find the problem with my O.M. Single Six

Ron, I think I found the culprit! I am not sure if you referred to it earlier or not, but this little plunger is frozen in place and does not move back into the side of the hammer as is the case with the other sample hammer I pulled. I tried to break the bond, but it won't budge. I applied PB Blaste...

Re: I can't find the problem with my O.M. Single Six

Ron,
All feels normal, there's no clue. I wish I had X-Ray vision and could see what is blocking the hammer. I think I will take one of the LW hammers and try it. If that doesn't work I will try a different trigger as well. Hope to report back soon. Thanks Mike

Re: I can't find the problem with my O.M. Single Six

Yes, I checked that. All parts were pretty clean to start with. I only disassembled the receiver parts because the hammer wouldn't go forward.
