Disassembly / Cylinder replacement Instructions

There are no tools or "tricks" required to do this. It is actually much easier than the directions seem. This entire procedure can be done in just a few moments.

Note: All of the parts you removed (2 bushings and 1 spring) are required to install the .32ACP cylinder!

To install the new cylinder, just reverse the procedure.

If you are not sure about anything, please have your firearm checked by a qualified gunsmith before firing.
