Have a problem with single six



Log in to see fewer ads
I have a older new model single six with the both cylinders. It started to give me some problems at the range the other. With the barrel on a sand bag and the butt of the grip on the bench trying to slowly pull the hammer back it stops about half way. Now if I pull the hammer back fast it does as it should. It only does it if the gun compleatly vertical if it is canted to one side or the other it doesnt matter how fast or slow I pull the hammer back it just works.

Any Ideas?

Sounds like the transfer bar is not clearing the firing pin as it cycles upward. Could be because the cylinder pin is not fully seated or the little pin in the end of the cylinder pin is not pushing out like it should. If it isn't, it probably needs cleaned real good. That little pin pushes the transfer bar back as you cock the hammer back so it clears the firing pin.

Good Luck!

I believe the reason the cylinder base pin pops out of position is because the cylinder base pin lock spring tends to be a little weak. Wolff makes stronger replacement springs which helps to prevent that for me.
