    Taurus Revolver Disassembly - Pictorial Guide

    This particular photo shoot is of my 85 Ultra-Lite. It is very similar to much of the Taurus double action revolver line. The official Taurus revolver owners manual has parts diagrams for many Taurus revolver models. Find it here - http://www.taurususa.com/pdf/revolver-manual.pdf

    Before starting your own tear down be sure to UNLOAD YOUR FIREARM and get a decent set of gunsmith screwdrivers. Here is an affordable set available at many stores that sell guns. http://www.midwayusa.com/viewproduct...tnumber=429783

    Note: The photos are fairly large. If you have dial up internet, just walk away and get a cup of coffee. The photos should all be loaded when you come back.

    I omitted the grip removal procedure to save photo space. Different grips come off in different ways. The model 85 has a single screw on the right side of the gun. Remove the screw and pry the grip halves off the grip frame.

    Note: Starting Nov. 3, 2011 you have to be logged in to see the photos. This is because the photos are hosted at Taurus Armed now.



    NOTE: The photo below is not the traditional method of removing the sideplate of a revolver. It is a convenient way to remove the sideplate since there is a hole in the frame allowing access. Not all revolvers have this access. Be sure to do a search for videos showing how to remove the sideplate from a revolver. Prying the sideplate off is NOT recommended and can damage the frame or sideplate.











    Note: The use of fired (empty) cases inserted into the chambers will provide additional support for the extractor star when you unscrew the extractor rod.

    Photo below: H= Extractor, I= Extractor Rod, J= Cylinder Stop Plunger with Spring








    Photo Below: You can also remove the cylinder release assembly if you want. It is held in place with one screw.
    K= Bolt Spring, L= Thumb Piece, M= Thumb Piece Screw, N= Bolt







    Reassembly is pretty much the reverse of disassembly.

    To reinstall the cylinder onto the yoke just press it together with your hands until it snaps together. There should be a little spring loaded play between the cylinder and yoke.

    The photo below shows what the trigger assembly looks like from the other side when put back together.





    After getting the internal parts back in the revolver frame, be sure to cock the gun one more time to hold the hammer and trigger springs so you can remove the pins or wires that you put in to hold the springs on the center pins. Remember to reinstall and close the cylinder/yoke assembly to allow cocking.

    When reinstalling the sideplate, the top portion has a tab that fits into the frame before closing the bottom of the sideplate. If the sideplate tab won't go into place, be sure the firing pin's retaining pin is fully installed. The bottom portion of the sideplate should press into place with a little pressure.

    DO NOT LOAD YOUR GUN!

    Be sure to check how the gun operates mechanically. Check the hammer cocking, trigger pull, cylinder rotation, cylinder lockup, and cylinder opening. If you find that you cannot pull the hammer back, remove the sideplate and check the hammer spring center pin. It can be accidentally reversed and jam against the trigger spring center pin. See the third photo to check.


    IF YOUR GUN IS MALFUNCTIONING, TAKE IT TO A GUNSMITH FOR REPAIR!

    EDIT: If the cylinder won't close properly after reassembly you may have a spacer, shown in the linked post, installed backwards. Thanks to Sunset_Va for discovering that! Here's his post.

    Chico, outstanding post, great to see you really earning your moderator pay. Just one question....Were you able to get it to shoot when you put it back together, since you didn't show the reassembled gun?
    In all seriousness, great post.

    And for all you folks who think a revolver has fewer moving parts than a Auto....look just real close and count them!
