While taking the buttstock off of a Single Shot Rifke I removed 4 instead of the necessary three screws and released the sear.  I know that the sear must be retained by the seat screw but no matter what I do the hammer remains pulled back and pressure on the hammer or trigger does nothing.  Advice?

 

And a few photographs.

And it’s working!  Patience is a virtue.  Don’t know why that happened but she works like a charm.
