Ruger Bisley Transfer bar Q

I know I am over looking something obvious. Maybe someone with clearer insite than me can set me right. I disassembled my Ruger Bisley to deep clean and generally look around inside. Upon reassembly I found that when cocking the hammer, the transfer bar raises up the channel it rides in , and hangs up on the protruding firing pin. This stops the rearward travel of the hammer. If the gun is tipped back, the transfer bar will fall away from the face of the channel it rides in and clear the firing pin, allowing the hammer to be completely cocked. What did I miss when I reassembled this thing?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,

You'll want to make sure you have your base pin slid all the way in. The little spring loaded tip, is what keeps the transfer bar back enough to clear the firing pin.

Thanks,

I'll actually try dry firing it with the cylinder and base pin in place. My attempts so far have been with the pin forward and cylinder out.

I was thinking I would check function before completely reassembling, just in case I'd done it wrong.

It didn't even occur to me that the base pin would complete the system.

Thanks again Joe.

That was the issue. Push in base pin, no more problem. I followed the tutorial on realguns.com and smoothed and squared up the trigger, hammer, and main spring strut. This is one smooth revolver now. I am a happy man. All I need now is a pair of custom grips and I am finished.
