AAAGGH! Problem with Cattleman
For starters, thanks to those who answered my question about BP loads for my newly-acquired Cattleman.
I've got a problem right off the bat, though. I disassembled the gun, to see the workings, and how they compared with my old 1860 by Pietta. I was surprised to see a small silver rod fall out of the hammer area; I believe this to be a part of the hand and spring assembly - I re-assembled the gun without it, and sure enough, the cylinder won't advance without being pointed downward. The schematic doesn't make it clear to my eyes what this is, and where it goes. Can anyone tell me what I need to do here?
