encore problem/bellm

I recently installed a bellm oversized pin in my encore and have to say I am impressed with it. My groups went from 1 1/2" to under 3/4". But I have a problem, if I normally open and close the gun I cannot cock the hammer. I have to slam the gun together to get it to cock. This started when I put the new pin in the gun and was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and what the solution was. I have a bullberry barrel with hanger bar on it also.

go back to Bellm and I am sure they have a fix. He is normally real good about those type things.

also found a simple piece of aluminum duct tape works also, ie the kind used to wrap AC ducts.

Go to prbullets.com for some of their other Encore/Contender tweaks.

Reloads?

At first, my 25-06 TC Encore barrel gapped .003" from the receiver with
the stock hinge-pin. After installing Mike's oversize hinge-pin, that gap
was narrowed by almost 2/3ds!! I couldn't believe it took care of so much
"slop" in that area -- what a GREAT side effect!

However, the reloads which I had previously matched to the chamber (as
well as the gap, as it turned out) were now a tad too long and required
slamming the action shut. After those loads were shot up, and brass was
matched to the "new" chamber setup, the action closed normally with a
round in the chamber.

Hoping your problem is as simple to solve.

I would definitely give Mike a holler. he can help you for sure.

I use an oversize on My Contender, but I have never had the problem. use a hich grease or anti-seize when using oversize pins.
