Stampede trouble

I was taking apart my Beretta Stampede .45 and cleaning out the trigger area. Well when I took out the hammer and transfer bar a small spring and a small silver pin fell out as well. Problem is I have no clue where they both go I have found nothing about them online. I can't even find an exploded view of the gun. Anyone know how to help!?!?I'm working on getting pictures up for it too, any information would be greatly apreciated

Have you tried Numrich Arms? They usually have schematics available. As a last resort you may want to call Beretta Customer Service and talk to one of their gunsmiths.

Thank you for the suggestion but Numrich didn't have one for it. If I don't find anything soon ill have to try calling Beretta.

You might try the schismatic for a colt SAA, as they are supposedly very similar.

Try Brownell's:

Looks like the gate spring.

No, the Stampede has a transfer bar ignition - a modern safety. Innards are therefore closer to a Ruger New Model than anything Colt ever made.

I have NOT studied how the Stampede works, however, I can guess that the spring and pin in question are used for one of two purposes:

* Drive the pawl forward as it rises. If this is the case, the spring will drive a pin FORWARD (towards the muzzle) to push the pawl forward to engage the ratchet teeth in the back of the cylinder. In a Ruger this pin goes into the primary frame from the rear, with the spring sticking out the rear. The spring is then capped with the grip frame.

* Drive the transfer bar backwards as it rises so that it clears the rear end of the firing pin on the way up. If there is no backwards pressure on the transfer bar on the way up, it will slam into the lower side of the firing pin and halt. In a Ruger this backwards pressure is via a spring-loaded pin at the rear end of the base pin. Check the Stampede's base pin: if it is "plain" at the rear then they may be using some other spring and pin to hold the transfer bar back as it rises and that might be what you have in your hand. It should use the spring to drive the pin REARWARD if this is what is going on.

I would bet you're looking at one of those two cases. Good luck!
