Oh hell....with almost all of my revolvers, I take 'em apart by the seat of my pants and re-assemble in reverse order.
They all work; I must be doing something right!

Thats cause you dern near wrote the book on it Captain.  I've used your methods and instruction, an' I'm a believer.


That friend Ari24 has got himself some nice ones.

Does anyone have a link to a complete disassembly/reassembly description?  Thx!

Here's a better one. Not that you really need instructions as simple as they are.

Thanks, Hawg, I'd found that but am still  looking for a similar one for the Rogers & Spencer.  There seems to be a tricky bit about removing and re-installing the main spring.

Looks like you just have to pry it down.

 Euroarms didn't recommend full dis assembly for cleaning.

Thanks again, Hawg, I think I'll just go and shoot it.

After wasting many hours surfing the Web, I found what I had seen  ... in Cumpston and Bates book "Percussion Revolvers" where they show placing a wooden block between the spring and the backstrap.
Considering how much residue flies around, I can't imagine not doing a full tear down and cleaning after every shoot.

Way to go Hawg, once again.  That Gun Mart article on R & S's is well worth knowing about, which I had not.

Skinny Preacher sure is useful. 

Good stuff.

1) Take an old clothespin
2) Separate it in half
3) Slide one half sideways up as close as you can get it to the hammer between frame & spring
4) Twist it sideways 90 degrees
5) Voila!
