Finally all the parts are here, after a little frustration with the bolt I tried spreading the legs and it finally cocks and the cylinder rotates to lock up.
BUT it will work maybe three times then I can't pull the hammer back? If I fool with the cylinder & hammer it will work a couple of more times but then lock up again so I have to fiddle with the cylinder/hammer again to get everything going again.
Any ideas what to check next?
