Help! With Colt/Browning Baby 25 Auto
Have a customer's little Colt 25 Auto in here for "fitting" of a new firing pin. That only required some slight smoothing and filing to get it in and sliding smoothly. Did that, but it does the same thing as it did before: it won't cock, won/t pick up a new rod out of either mag, both of which appear to be in great shape, and even if I manually place a round into the chamber, it won't fire.
Question is: does anyone know a good 'smith who has lots of experience with these? This one's in great shape and should be saved, but I have run out of ideas and would either need to talk to an experienced gunny on the piece, or more likely would send it to him.
Otherwise, I'll have to return it no charge, and I've already spent about 3 h on it!
