Default 32 HE 1st Model

Hi All, I took the side plate off to thoroughly clean the revolver. After removing the parts, it appears the trigger, trigger lever, hand, and rebound lever must be put together and installed as an assembly. Is this correct or is there a better way to reassemble? Is it necessary to remove the trigger spring that's pinned to the handle front strap? It looks like an extremely small diameter punch is needed. Thanks

Yes, certain parts such as triggers and hammers must be installed in the frame as assemblies. Impossible to assemble the gun any other way.

usually much easier to assemble springs last. Especially old springs in old guns that can be brittle, plus sometimes impossible to find replacements.

Thanks. Replaced the broken hammer spring and all back together. Cleaned and good to go.
