smith & wesson 586
« on: August 26, 2016, 11:36:24 PM »
ive had this pistol for over 8 years and has given fantastic reliability, for 5 years every sunday it has a few hundred pellets through it fast as i could load and pull the trigger, but 2 weeks ago a little pin that holds the cylinder lock (prevents it from revolving when firing) fell out, so using only a screwdriver i took off the side plate and somehow managed to realign the the pin into the frame and stopper against the spring then fit the side plate back on, any way i found a little spring on the shooting bench as i noticed that the latch that releases the cylinder dident feel right, (the spring was part of the mechanism that holds the latch open untill the clinder arm is back in place)
when i got home the pistol was striped and everthing was cleaned and relubed, the little spring was put back in place then came the problem, putting the bits back in the right place was not a problem, the problem was aligning a link plate thar goes from a fixed pin at back of the trigger across 2 other pins 1 of which was fixed to the trigger but the problem was the indexing arm which had to go in the last hole on the plate, 2 1/2 hours later it was back together  :o
back at the range last week worked perfectly for a few minutes then stoped indexing, so earlier it was striped again after a bit of head scraching i checked online about how the flat copper spring was supposed to go, whoops i fitted it compleatly the wrong way round :-[ now its back together (again) just hope it works tomorrow at the range.
the down side is that i noticed that the point that pierces the co2 cylinder was nealy flat (still pierces the cylinder though) will at some point in the near future have to be replaced and i will have to strip the pistol again!:(

I don't envy you Uggs.......those pesky CO2 pistols (all makes) are a reet pig to work on. :-\

Makes me kinda glad I'm not really into pistols, as the lads up the club who are, seem to have more of their fair share of grief with them. Certainly more problems than the rifle boys have anyway. :-\

Please to hear you've think you've sorted it though.....fingers crossed it all works as intended this time. XXXXXXX ;)

it works!!!! ;D
the tetra gun oil I used might be a bit thick but the way i fast fire the s&w it needs all the protection against wear it can get ::)
the tetra gun oil reduces friction no end but as said its a bit thick as its ment for firearms.
i noticed that its possible to remove the side plate without disturbing the conecting plate or any thing else, then you can (if your very careful) remove the co2 piercing housing, valve and connecting pipe.
