Myopia: (n) a lack of foresight or discernment: a narrow view of something
Saturday, April 21, 2012
So anyway, I've got a Ruger Standard, ca. 1954. I broke it down, cleaned
it, re-assembled it, and it all checked out. However, when I try to
break it down again, the lever comes about 20% out (clearing the latch, as you can see on the bottom of the pic)
and will move no more. Can't push it back, can't pull it out. The bolt
pulls 80% so long as the safety is off. I don't want to force the lever
because I don't want to bend the pin, but I'm at something of a loss.
UPDATE: Blogger's new editing layout utterly sucks. If I was a serious blogger, I would switch to another host immediately. I'm not, so I'll whine instead.
UPDATE II: Got it. I'm not sure what I did. I managed to force the lever toward the bolt and in that way got it back into its closed position. Then when I unlatched it again, it worked perfectly, so I have broken it down and re-assembled it, and will keep doing so until I can do it in my sleep. Carry on.
