I made a stupid. A big stupid.
Well, I did it now. I decided to play gunsmith on a rifle I had no parts experience with and now I've stepped in it big time.I totally disassemled my H&R Model 150 Leatherneck .22LR so I could do a real thorough cleaning.While I was doing great up until I took the second spring (the smaller, longer spring of the two) out of the frame it was in and it sprung out and scattered the pieces all over the place. I got the frame, the spring, and the rod that the spring rested on, but I've got no idea what else I lost. Whatever it is, I cant find it.I'm trying to avoid bringing it in to an actual gunsmith, so I'd like to figure this out myself and leave my pride intact.So: If anyone can point me in the direction of, or send me via email, part schematics for the rifle, I'd be eternally grateful.If anyone has any ideas, suggestions, comments or heckles, I'll take em now, cause I feel like I did when I was at the beach last year and lost my Rolex my wife gave me for our anniversary in the sand.A kindly gent with a metal detector got me out of that jam. Lets hope someone here's got a bright idea.
