After non-stop yard work at church and at home this weekend - FINALLY a gorgeous weekend and me home at the same time - I loaded up a movie and decided to mess around with the old Browning last night. As usual, pain in patoot to disassemble. And to reassemble. And once reassembled, disinclined to dry fire. This is something that has been happening intermittently. I'm not a gunsmith and I'm not about to take an old gun like that apart beyond a point without knowing what I'm doing. But I did notice something after repeated fiddlings - slide and barrel assembly off, dry fires. Slide and barrel assembly back on, nada. So I'm thinking that once assembled there is pressure being put on something that shouldn't have pressure on it or the other way around - pressure is NOT being put where is SHOULD be put. I went to bed with it still not being functional, but it flashed through my mind after I had turned the lights out that the firing pin assembly tends to pop out without being asked. Tonight's job is to see if maybe it's the way the firing pin and spring are seating that's causing the problem.
