A S&W 629-4, N-Frame, .44 Mag being completely disassembled and then reassembled.
(Important: Please read the two follow up notes below.)
NOTE #1: I forgot to show the re installation of the main spring. Say what? Ya, I know. Weird. How did I forget that? It should have been reinstalled at time-stamp 19:23. Just take a look at it during the disassembly, and you can easily see how it needs to go back in.
NOTE #2: The last two screws that I show removing from the side plate during the disassembly, were in the incorrect holes. The screws are slightly different, and one of the screws has a tapered head on it, which lets it sit flush with the plate when screwed all the way in. That screw should have been put in the other hole, which is eventually covered by the grip when the grip is re-installed. That’s why it needs to be flush with the plate. I also put the screws back in the wrong holes when reassembling it. I guess I’m pretty consistent when I mess up.
NOTE #3: I would normally wipe the parts down with Hoppe’s No. 9 during the reassembly, but I didn’t while making this video because I didn’t want to get any oil on the camera. I should have still talked about wiping the parts down in the video though.
