Crosman Model 357 (Phase 1) Disassembly, Part 1

A friend conned me into resealing a Crosman 357 revolver for him. I realized that we don’t have a full disassembly blog, so I’ll give it that treatment. The last one I disassembled using my patented explosive technique of forgetting that there was a full CO2 cartridge in the gun…
You can get the exploded diagram, etc. here.IMG_6208IMG_6209IMG_6210
1987 vintage.
Let’s begin.
Three screws.
The barrel pivot screw is longer.
The safety is best kept in the side plate so it doesn’t get forgotten.IMG_6219
This is a handy picture as it shows the ideal state of things.IMG_6221IMG_6225
I’m not sure what all the odd hard rubber bits are as the main rubber spring for the latch seems fine.IMG_6226IMG_6227
Removing the lever.
And the index finger.
And the entire valve and piercing body assemblies.IMG_6231
The hammer spring also retains the Piercing body assembly.IMG_6232IMG_6234
Removed the hammer. Notice the solidified grease.IMG_6235
The safety link is behind the trigger.
Trigger spring.
Just a couple of details. Part 2 to follow…
