The hammer plunger broke on my 22/22mag single six. Got a new one and, after a bunch of head-scratching, got it put in OK. But, not on the first try- I found that the new plunger was too long. So, I compared it to the old one and whittled the new one down to that same size and it works great. I know it's after the fact now, but two things came to mind: I'm glad I didn't lose the broken-off piece so I had something to compare to and, second: did I get the wrong part sent to me, or are they all one length for any single6 and then you have to size it to the particular gun? If one size fits all, and you had nothing to compare to, how would you know what length to make it? Also, since it broke once maybe it will break again. Seems to me it should have some wiggle room since it is spring loaded. Any one got any ideas?
