Folding Trigger Vest Pocket

I have a old small Belgium made 6.35 revolver with a hidden hammer and a folding trigger, very small in size and it needs a minor repair, does anyone know where I might be able to get it repaired ? It needs the piece(arm) that rotates the cylinder re-set(came looose). Is this something a regular gunsmith can do or does it take a specialist with special tools since its small. I've look at it myself but I really don't know how the piece fit in, think its best for me not to screw it up. A google search for directions did'nt help either. Thanks for any info.

    Their very fragile and problematic pistols. Likely the "hand" has broke, rather then just came loose. Most gunsmiths don't want anything to do with them, as replacement parts aren't available, and they are very difficult to work on,( timing, lockup, etc). IMHO, given the current hourly rate charged by gunsmiths it would cost you more to have it fixed, even if the part(s) were available, then it's worth.

    Problematic, maybe ? fragile, no its a well made pistol and saw where a couple have sold for close to $500 on auction sites so its worth repairing atleast in my opinion and the "hand" as you call it is defintely not broken, I thought that also but under mag. glass its not broken, it apparently slip out of whatever it attaches to and down into the frame grip. Thanks for your reply.
