The beautiful thing about Smith & Wesson revolvers is that they're simple and, if you do screw something up internally, replacement parts are easy to come by.

I taught myself how to tear down Smiths by doing.

It wasn't until much later that I got Jerry Kuhnhausen's shop manual and taught myself how to do action jobs ranging from replacing springs to polishing the internals to recutting the single-action sear (and case hardening it) on a hammer that someone before me had screwed up.
