View Full Version : Bay Area Gunsmith for really minor noob crisis

Hi. Just took delivery of a Colt 1889 in .41 to find that the ejector has been assembled improperly on an otherwise fair specimen (reblued). The ejector prongs block the chambers and make the cylinder look out of time, of course.

I have no vice at home, and since there's a parts contingency problem, I'd like to be able to just take the cylinder/crane assy (not the whole gun) down to someone who can help. Thanks in advance.

Depending on your location, you might visit Tabor's in San Bruno.

The ejector rod was installed 180 off, easy fix. I'm in Dixon if you want some help.
