I have tried to disassemble an 1894 receiver and can not get the hammer out. The carrier has been removed, as well as the mainspring. I can not press the hammer down far enough to get it released from the lower tang. It seems locked into the trigger assembly. The breech bolt, carrier spring, loading gate and locking bolt are still in the receiver. How do Cry I unlock the hammer from the trigger assembly to get it out??? Need your help!

Interesting. I’m going to have to get one of those one size fits all screwdrivers. The other thing is when you take off that rear barrel band I think you’re better off taking out the screw and sliding the stock and the band forward then squeezing the stock and then removing the band. There is usually a burr on the inside of that band and it will put that scare on the stock that you see so many times just in front of the screw hole in the barrel band. I think Bert and I had a discussion about using care with removal of that band previously. 🙂

Thanks for your suggestions, but I don't think I stated the problem correctly. Apparently, the hammer is locked into the trigger assembly and I can not remove the lower tang as the hammer binds on the upper tang. The locking block and carrier have been removed along with the mainspring. All that remains in the receiver is the loading gate, carrier spring, breech bolt. and of course the lower tang and hammer. It appears the hammer is locked into the trigger sear? Anybody ever have this issue.?? Whats the fix? Cry

If you have removed the hammer pivot screw, you said mainspring is out. you have to pull back on hammer and wiggle it as you pull up and out the top

If I understand you right, the hammer is fitting tight inside the lower tang. The hammer shouldnt be attached to the trigger other than to bear against it. I normally remove the hammer by two means, depending on whether #1 works, if not, then try #2 below:

1) Remove the hammer screw, pull the trigger to disengage the sear while pressing downward on the hammer, once released you can pull the hammer out the top of the receiver. Then remove the lower tang.

or

2) Remove the hammer screw, with the hammer still in place, pull the trigger to disengage the hammer sear while at the same time slowly pry out the lower tang. This will cause the hammer to follow the path of the lower tang and will usually come out with the lower tang or disengage it where the hammer can be removed from the top of the receiver.

Sometimes there is a lot of gunk in there or they are just inherently tight. Let us know if it works.

Letting a project rest on your bench for a few days works wonders. Your suggestions had time to sink in and bare fruit. The hammer and lower link are out out and the receiver completely disassembled. And nothing broke! 🙂 . Thank you for your help. Seems the safety was not releasing the sear very easy. Cleaned a lot of gunk out of the lower trigger assembly. All is well!
