I uh.. I wasn't paying attention to see if you had the hammer in the right way. If it was backwards that would definitely have been the problem
Hammer is correct. I believe I originally had it backwards and you caught it.

No Idea. Its a Spyder and AKA lightning bolt. I tried two different Spyder RVAs that were different lengths, same problem.

I also tried a short spring (not the right kind. But only wanted to use it for length... and the same thing happened, it feels like something is physically catching.

First, narrow it down a bit, put the bolt in ALONE and see if it moves freely, assuming yes, do the hammer alone

Next add the spring/guide/back block, see if anything changes

Somewhere you will start having issues and can narrow it down to what part or few parts are causing it


One other thing, sometimes those springs need to be put in before the bolt is attached to the hammer. The connecting pin can sometimes stick down into the hammer and prevent the spring from inserting all the way

I think you nailed it. The pin was all the way into the hammer blocking the spring.
The pin would have to go further into the bolt to rectify this, at which point.. the cocking rod won't screw as far in... is that okay? I cant even get the damn thing unscrewed and ive basically already butchered it.


Edit: Never mind.. the pin was upside down, but it doesn't make a difference because it only goes into the bolt the same distance... If I insert spring into hammer first... the combination is too tall to fit into the body...


Edit 2: It's definitely the bolt/pin combo. I just used the Alamo City bolt which had it's own pin. I inserted the spring first, both fit into body. The only thing is... I don't see how a cocking rod would attach to the bolt... the back is just flat.

Could you just shorten the pin to where the spring would clear it?

That will be nice when its done...

I have never seen a striker like that. looks like it has a tube built in where the bolt pin connects.

Do you have a stock striker that you could try? looks like that one has been modified a little.

Seconded. Love that frame, and how you got around using a 'Cocker vertical.
