    N frame actions locks up

    Hi all

    I am brand new to the forum. I have a problem with a pair of S&W M1917 revolvers (Brazilian contracts). On occasion, both of them will lock up when I squeeze the trigger. It is not every time I go out shooting, but around 50%. My loads are properly made, all within tolerance, primers are not high, etc.. I think it may be the hammer spring. I have managed to free it by REALLY pulling on the trigger. I have recently moved from MT, where the local gunsmith said he could not get old S&W parts, and would not speculate on the problem, and there is not a gunsmith within 60 miles of where I live now.. Any ideas? I really love these guns, and purchased them for home defense...

    i am sorry to hear that BOTH of your home defense pistols suddenly developed the same problem at the same time..... there wasnt a hint of a problem when you did a funtion and fire test BEFORE buying them (and risking your life on them) for home defense?
