Hi everyone, I am having a slight problem with my SBH. At the the last few range sessions after firing the loading gate will not open unless I touch the hammer back, just have to touch it and there is a slight click and all is fine.

Does anyone have an idea of what is wrong and a possible remedy.

Also the few times I have disassembled this pistol I have a tough time tucking the return spring back in front of the trigger when putting it together. It looks very easy in the Ruger video but gives me a hard time. Is there an easy way to do this.

Thanks,
Ivoryhunter

Take it to a gunsmith familiar with the SBH. Sometimes, you are just not able to see what you are looking at, and another pair of eyes is required. I have three SBH revolvers plus clones, and I have never encountered the condition you are describing.

Thanks for answering Sawfish. For some reason issue has not appeared in the last two shooting sessions.

That is good. Give it a good shake to ensure nothing is loose inside, and try it again. If it still works pronounce it good.
It it was mine, I would at least run this by a gunsmith, or contact Ruger customer service for its opinion. Good luck.
