A church member brought this to me after service in a baggie and asked me to fix it. Even though I was trained by a master to work on and fix just about anything, it's been quite a while since I touched anything but an AR.
This pistol was rusted inside and out, internals were gummed up, striker spring was weak, the firing pin was broken, and the firing pin spring follower was missing. I installed a replacement recoil spring for good measure.
The owner will get back the original parts.
After carding and cleaning it, I had to fit the replacement firing pin, dress the recoil spring ends, and remove some damage to the feed ramps so it would feed properly.
Feels nice to get back to my roots and help a good man get his old pistol running like new. Now back to my AR's...
