The metal bar is holding everything back - it won't allow the hammer to rest against the safety...or allow the hammer to go any farther forward than where the bar is fixed in place...

What does your seller have to say about this phenomenon?


He says that he test fired it before shipping it out to me.

As a long time member here; I believe him.

PLUS this pistol was designed and built by one of our best and most trusted air gun designers/builders here (still waiting for him to read my PM sent).

A really puzzling situation (I have owned and fired many 357s before - never a problem like this one...)

OK. There is something wrong in there (but you knew that , right? :wink: ). Even if I keep the trigger back after firing the gun, which keeps my bar up on the valve pin, the hammer is still forward enough to rest against the safety if I switch it on.

That's for sure!

Just hoping that someone here had run into a similar problem and had a solution.

Will have to wait now to hear back from the designer; I guess...

Has been a while since I've been inside mine...but IIRC...that transfer bar is linked to the trigger blade piece...pulling trigger raises the bar into position between the hammer and valve stem.

If it's staying "up"...something is either broken...or assembled wrong.

In any event...has nothing to do with anyone outside yourself and the seller IMO, but would sure like to know "how" someone here "designed and built" it. :lol:

Doug who worked on that one...?
it looks to me like the little peace that sits behind the trigger is not in its proper location...or the trigger itself was not put in properly
can you cock the trigger with no problem..?
take a look at this pic the circled section just behind the trigger...I think this might be your problem, but this is just a guess without seeing it in person..

Yes, the hammer moves with no problems.

Still waiting for the builder to get my PM and answer.

Will let you know who it is as soon as he reads it.

Worked when the Seller sent it to me (says he); wouldn't work as soon as it got here (big trip from Edmonton to Kelowna).

BTW - how difficult is it to remove that side plate?

Just take off the 3 screws - and it comes off with nothing falling out or springs flying off...?

side plate comes off pretty easy, if you attempt it just be carful and pull it straight up
if none of the pins come up with the plate upon removal then everything should stay in place...
you might want to place your finger on the safety bar while at the same time as pulling up on the plate,
sometimes the safety bar will try to come up with the plate.... :wink:

Play fair, Doug; this is slowly working into another blame-game thread. If you refuse to stand by and wait to resolve the issue with the seller, as a few of us have suggested, then either call the person out or keep silent - no inferences. Make this either a please help me fix this thread or another blame-game thread, just so we understand the purpose.

I am from Edmonton, and I did not sell this gun to Doug.

I am giving the benefit of the doubt to the Seller.

I have bought and sold to him before with NO problems.

I have already emailed him about the issue - and he has replied that he is looking into the problem.

I will NOT give out any names until I am satisfied that all solutions have been explored.

Edmonton is a very large city with lots and lots and members here - so CHILL OUT.

lol...what happened Doug I said slow.... :roll:
and im going to take a guess that the co2 cart was empty lol...

what id like to know is what the hell is this...is it part of the thin tube, hard to tell from the pic
if this was there when you opened it up its definitely stopping the hammer from going all the way forward
