Thanks for the encouragement. I do need to temper my enthusiasm with my limited skills. Especially in diagnosis. I believe everything I have done to the little .25 could have been avoided had I diagnosed the real problem initially. I saw that the pin on the back of the trigger wasn't making enough contact to reliably trigger the sear. Assuming that surface was worn I went down the path of adding material to that surface. I believe that had I replaced the pivot pin the problem would have been resolved. When I'm done, I plan to put what I have learned about each firearm in writing. Not for the Gunsmith audience, but for the person who wants to know how his gun works. Because I won't have gained enough knowledge to be a gunsmith resource these would just give a general outline of function and what I have learned about weak points. The little H&R just doesn't have enough written about it. I suspect because there just weren't that many made and the audience isn't there. I have done/are doing similar things with a Savage 1907 pistol in .380 and a Marlin 1892 in .32 Colt that I'm still working on. I have learned a lot that isn't written about them that I'd like to share.
