I did notice the legs were splayed on the bolt, and thought that was the reason. Glad to hear I was right about that at least. I agree that the leg of my bolt may have been trimmed, and I just can't tell by looking. A new bolt is not a problem, I'll order one (along with a new mainspring
). I would just like to avoid a new hammer. Although, I guess the best answer is to go ahead and order one now, and return it later if I don't need it.
I was really excited and ready to shoot this thing, but decided I didn't want to scratch up the cylinder any more than it was. Well, it needs to be fixed, and I might as well get it right before firing it.
