You don't have to use a hosting service anymore, you can post directly from your own computer.

You might have to do what I do and email my pictures from my phone to my email, save them, then post them up.

Hello backup,

I could use a few photographs so as to see what's going on there. Sorry for not getting back to you straight away, however, I too almost made the hospital trip Thursday evening. Getting better, but I at least wanted to check in here to see how everybody was doing and then I read your post here. We'll make her whole again when you have the time for the photos. . . . . We'll continue from there Good Sir.

Regards,

Eric R

Will do Tracker.  My wife has been in and out of the hospital since September, in again last week....just too many things to do right now.  I put all the pieces in a ziplock and put them in the gunsafe for now.  I have enough rounds through the Sign P365 to trust it (in fact I am loving it!) so I am not lacking for carry (also have a sequestered R9 if needed).

Why not contact Alex at Williams Gunsight in Michigan or at least call Eric. I wouldn't have a clue how to address a mechanical malfunction like you described.

  Any one out here have a Benelli R1 in 300wsm?
      I have one and I have had it for some years now. Fortunately I had ordered a spare mag,mainly because we are some of the few remaining hunters who still drive deer up here in northern Wisconsin.
      What I am beginning to notice is those mags are becoming few and far between.So just a heads up I guess if you have been thinking about getting a spare mag for your R1,might not want to wait too long.

I found the schematic.  The hammer strut fits into the plunger at the bottom and appears to be fixed to the hammer by the hammer strut pin.  Does the strut just fit on the pin, or is it actually pinned to the hammer?  I do suppose I will need to remove the hammer to evaluate, and then, if all is fixed, will need to figure out how to reconnect and replace.  I wish I were a gunsmith!

My poor olí Covert is breaking down it seems.  It may have seen 600 rounds shot since inception, but several months ago it broke the slide pin.  Eric was kind enough to find me another, but I first had to smooth out the gauling on the slide and the frame rails...easily done.  Put it all back together, fired it at the range last week with one FTF (probably my limp wrist?), but otherwise it did well.  Anyway, I tightened the grip screws (after every 20-30 rounds), changed the recoil spring, went back today.  At 5 yards put 2 rounds in the X-ring and then.....nothing....the hammer was flopping around and, although a round was chambered, there was no movement.  Took it apart and removed the spring and trigger, both of which were in proper position.  I pushed down on the mainspring and removed the piston under the hammer....it looked to me like it may be deformed, but I have nothing to compare and in fact have no clue how it engages the hammer at the upper end. I did not try to remove the hammer until I have more information..

1.  Any good pictures/Schematics available on line?
2.  Any suggestion, advice?
