My brother recently bought a very nice service six but the hammer hangs up a little when cocking manually or in DA. What would be the fix if any?
Thanks. I just got finished putting it back together(the trigger spring on the six series is a #[email protected]$%^%) and the DA pull is SMOOOOOTH as heck and the SA is a crisp hair trigger and that is with stock springs. I think he will be very happy.Just got back to this one - sounds like you're back on track. As you discovered, hang up on the trigger early in the trigger travel is usually attributed to the locking bolt - the first thing which needs to happen as the hammer/trigger start traveling is for the cylinder to unlock to be allowed to rotate. If that doesn't happen, the indexing pawl will try to carry up against a locked cylinder... Won't happen. At best, it feels like drag, at worst, it locks solid and won't function.
Glad you got it lined out!
