    model 629 cylinder rotation issue, help!!

    I stripped my 629 44 mag, to clean and did some polishing. I thought i had everything back together. Is the hand that rotates the cylinder supposed to float? I can shake the gun and here it move, if i tilt gun with barrel pointing up the hand wont grab cylinder, if i rotate gun with barrel pointing down hand will then grab cylinder and rotate it. I triple checked everything both of the location pins on the hand are in the two holes in the trigger assembly. Im confused. thanks, alot.

    Nope there should be a spring in there. Its a funny little spring the is held in place with the hand and uses the pins to keep tension on the hand. I hope you can find the little sucker.

    The handspring is wire and pinned inside the trigger.

    It's a tricky proposition to trap the end of the spring under the end of the handspring stud without the proper tool.

    As an field expedient I've sometimes used a loop of dental floss to pull the spring into compression. This while inserting the hand pivot into the trigger and when the end of the spring clears the stud, snapping the hand into place.

    All it takes is practice, a little "Body English" and a third hand.

    thanks for the help, I got her fixed and ready to shoot something. I used a tiny punch and just pushed up spring and stuck hand pin behind it. done!

    Thanks, again.
