HD Military -help needed
Mon Sep 3, 2018 20:25

Well have an older HD and have never really cleaned it. So I read about the slide removal and removed the slide successfully. But fumble finger then pulled the trigger and sent the hammer forward.

How do I remedy the situation? The hammer is forward and I do not want to force anything at this point until I understand what to do.

Any and all help is appreciated.

            Many thanks for your assistance. The hold-down of the mainspring is much like old Astra Broomhandles. Hope to get this old gal up and running again. Kind regards, Russ
