58 Remington full cock trouble
« on: January 11, 2013, 06:17:54 PM »

                         I have a 58 that does not want to lock in full cock , have to pull the hammer back 2-4 times to get it to stay . Got any ideas ? Half cock works fine , have tore it down and cant see anything wrong , put it back together and same thing .                 Thanks for any help !

I would have replied earlier but my time machine is being used by a crazy old man with white hair.

One possibility: The bolt locks the cylinder and if the hand is too long it will bind the hammer before the trigger can fall into the full cock notch.
A couple of passes with a stone.

Did it work fine before?  Did you shoot it or make some change or take it apart for cleaning and then it quit working?

1st thought is, might be dirty if you don't completely disassemble the pistol after every shooting outing.

2nd thought is, if you shoot the pistol a lot, the surface on either the trigger or hammer or both where they lock together in the firing position may have worn out.

Really not a lot to go wrong with these but can go wrong easily if proper care is not taken.
