Reassembly is impossible. You'll have to scrap it. I'll give you $25 for it if you'll mail it to Texas.  Cheesy

Those instructions work great ---- for a revolver with the full-length barrel.  I have a pair of stainless Piettas with 5.5-inch barrels, and the cylinder pins come to a full stop on the loading lever latch before they can be removed.

Any suggestions on how I can remove the cylinder pins without completely dismounting the lever latches?  The pins are a little rough, and I'd like to smooth them out to facilitate removing/replacing the cylinders.

Daniel, Probably cannot remove the pins via "simple" means. If the retaning stud has a dovetail, you can knock it out and then remove the cylinder pin, otherwise the retaining stud is soldered in (like my DIY "bob" job).

I cut my full barrel to ~4" some years ago. I don't fret over removing the pin for cleaning. You should be able to round/polish the tip of the cylinder pin. This should greatly smooth/improve installation of the cylinder. Polishing the entire length is not necessary unless it is extremely rough.

My 5-1/2 inch Uberti the lever catch (barrel stud) is just held in tight enough in the dovetail to stay in place, latched.  With the lever down, the barrel studs can be pushed out of the barrel with my fingers.  Sometimes the stud might prefer to move one direction more than the other, try pushing both directions to test it.  If you can't press it out sideways with your fingers, use a brass or wood dowel and a small mallet.  If they get too loose after some use and time, the dovetail can be tightened a bit with a few dimples punched at the edge of the barrel flat.

To disassemble, lower and remove the loading lever and press out the barrel stud, and the cylinder pin can be pulled out.

Ah My Dear Daniel-san
I am beside myself, here you are at odds with your Remmy pins, and I fail to notice your dilemma for well over 9 months.

So the answer to your problem is the hinged cylinder pin, as perfected by other members of this excellent place.

The most difficult part for cutting any Remmy shorter than 5.5" is the cylinder rod. Since the loading lever catch blocks the free movement of the cylinder pin, anything shorter that that means the pin is permanently captured unless the latch is removed. Anything shorter than 4- 4.5" means the pin will not be able to clear the cylinder. Amongst the solutions I have seen are leaving off the loading lever and catch (ideal for a barrel 3" or less) , building a hinged cylinder pin, or planning for a removable lever catch (not a good choice IMHO).

I offer a small selection of links showing the efforts of others in this endevour -

First go here and drool:

Read about the "Ultimate Remington":

here you can see how Halfway Creek Charlie (aka Gunslinger in CAS) cut an 8" bbl, .44 Remington 6shot conversion, with his special hinged cylinder pin that allows a barrel shorter than 5 1/2 "

Disassembly Instructions for an 1858 Pietta Remington Revolver

I followed the steps as described. When I got the gun back together, there was no spring tension on the hand to engage and rotate the cylinder. I took the gun apart again to inspect the hand and spring. They appear to be normal. Any idea why Iím not getting spring tension on the hand?

First time I took mine apart, I didn't need instructions.  It was enough like Colts that I figured it out on my own.

Back together again?  I did have to spend several hours on the internet looking for creative suggestions on re-installing the main spring...  (By the way, the mainspring that came stock with my ASP Remmie was much stronger than most Remmie mainsprings, which made it much worse.  I've since replaced it with a lighter Pietta mainspring, and I don't need to be nearly as creative as that first time.)
