    I need to have my Colt 1908 Pocket pistol. 380Cal. put to geather properly

    I am trying to find a gun smith that works on a Colt 1908 Pocket pistols .380 cal.
    I have one that needs to be put properly back together.
    It will fire with out pulling the trigger.
    Thank you,
    Rich

    I recently saw one in a gun store that had the safety engaged and the safety lever could not be disengaged.

    Can you describe the problem a little more? Install the loaded magazine, cock the slide, then it fires when the slide goes into battery? Does it empty the magazine, as in, full auto? Maybe there is gunk in the firing pin channel?

    I got hold of a 1903 M years ago that slam fired like that. It was all gummed up. After a good cleaning, it functioned perfectly.

    The sear was not installed properly. I need a GunSmith that knows how to instal it properly.

    I bet it was fun the SECOND time you loaded it!

    It has been reassembled wrong. Do not load it; there is no tension on the sear by the sear spring.

    There are two ways the hammer can be installed; one way misses the sear spring and allows the gun to fire without a finger on the trigger; the
    other way is correct. Ask me how I know!

    I know because after I disassembled my 1908M I reassembled it incorrectly and when I loaded a magazine and chambered a round, without a finger on the trigger, the gun tripled. Killed the mattress!

    I sent mine off to David Sams of Sam's Custom Gun Works (Central Virginia) who reassembled it correctly. I'm sure there are members here who could guide you through reassembly. Loading, after re-assembly, really reiterates the need to have the muzzle pointed in a safe direction!

    Most Public Libraries have the NRA's 'Firearms Disassembly Guide', or the Gun Digest version of same - I'd go there, because that's what'll be used by pretty much every gun shop you'll find.
