    Adams revolver

    I have an Adams revolver that the hammer will not pull back or the cylinder will not turn, any suggestions?

    First check the exterior and make sure one of Obama's minions hasn't "demiled" the gun with welds. If nothing there remove the grips. You can freeze up a gun by making the mainspring/rear of hammer connection inoperable. If all you see is rust you need to put the gun in a tub of rust remover for a few weeks - like Breakfree or something similar. Don't put the grips in the rust remover.
    It will be very beneficial for you to study schematics of the interior of the revolver on the Internet before doing anything.
    And yes life is tough being this good looking.
    Oh also, this should be posted under Civil War small arms, not Around the Campfire.
