Just a word of warning

Postby gunman42782 » Sat Feb 04, 2017 3:54 pm

Taking a 92 Rossi (or Winchester) apart is easy. Putting it back not so much! :lol: Even with the help of youtube and a video on it, it took me what seemed like forever to get it back and working properly. I had 3 items I was installing on it, and the only one I needed to put in that I would have had to take it apart was the little bitty ejector spring. I also put in a metal mag follower and a plug for the dreaded safety. Anyway, after much unkind thoughts and muttering under my breath, I got everything back together. :D Now, if I ever get the urge to do that again, please have me committed!

never tore into one...........my biggest mistake in my life was tearing down an old H&R single shot receiver.

i thought......simple action, simple design, few parts.....ought to be a breeze. Well, she sure came apart easy but it went to a smith in a shoe box to put back together............... :lol:

I was all hot to disassemble and clean a recently purchased Model 94. until I watched a couple videos. I cleaned and oiled the best I could without disassembly and declared it good. :) :)

i still cringe when i think back.... :lol: Little did i know that it involved slave pins, special tools, and more importantly someone who knew what they were doing.......

now i have enough sense to just get a can of gun scrubber and blow the heck out of them......followed by some Hornady Dry Lube......

My Dad was in the hospital for 5 months before he died-and I, being 13+, was home alone in the mornings, went to school in the afternoons. Too much time and no supervision. I'd already learned the ins and outs of Dad's Rem 141 pump .35 but I just couldn't stop there-I thought I'd just take it apart and oil all the insides, then put it back together and back in the box-since he couldn't do it, you know. Well, I got it back together except for the bolt just rattled around in it-no connection. I sweated it from about January till about August, when we'd moved from PA to LA, and I told my huntingest uncle what I'd done. We took it to his house one weekend (because it needed oiling, we said) and he put it back together right. Mom never knew. I learned right there a natural gunsmith I ain't.
Since then, taking the disconnect out of a Browning Hi-power and changing a trigger in a P90 Ruger has been the extent of my adventures-and it'll likely stay that way.

I can usually tear about anything apart and get it back together. If I get frustrated, I take a break and start again later. A friend of mine has a Ruger MK2 that he just field stripped, not completely tore apart, that he got POed and hit with a ball peen hammer! Now it will fire out of battery. He kept it just to remind himself not to ever do that again!
