HSC 32acp Disconnector
« on: January 21, 2018, 12:10:48 PM »
My 1970 HSC does not have a disconnector. Trigger bar held in place by slide and left grip. Is that a problem, or did later HSC not come with disconnector?


Thanks

The New Model HSc Disconnector is integral with the Trigger Bar.  Meaning it is formed with, and part of, the Trigger Bar.

Warburg, thanks for the illustrations on the trigger bar. This particular HSC is from 1970, and it seems hard to find that disconnector at the usual places.
Itís easy to find on the HSC diagram, and listed as a separate piece, and appears to go vertically down and over the trigger bar.
Any help locating one would be appreciated.

You are apparently looking at a Wartime HSc diagram that has the Disconnector as a separate part.  On your 1970 HSc there is no Disconnector.  As I pointed out, it is integral with the Trigger Bar.  It is the part of the Trigger Bar in the center that points upward.  Does your Trigger Bar look like the picture on top?  Hope that clarifies.

Ok, got it now. Thatís great news because I thought I lost it while cleaning the pistol.
So.....since I was successful getting the trigger bar in the proper place, and the pistol functioning again, seems that only the slide, and the grips hold the trigger bar in place??


Thanks for taking the time with me,


Vic

That is correct.  Only the Grip Panel holds the Trigger Bar and Spring in place.

Warbird, been awhile, but thanks for your explanation.
 This week, after firing the pistol, I improperly tried to field strip my Interarms HSC , and had the safety in the wrong position.
 When I tried to reassemble the pistol, with the hammer cocked, the trigger bar had come off.
How do I fix this?

With the left grip removed, just press the triggerbar back in place, make sure it is seated well.


Keep some pressure on it, from the side, while installing the grip panel again.


It is quite normal for that bar to come loose, as it is held under pressure both front and rear.


Normal field strip after shooting only requires removal of the slide from the frame.


Proper method:
Check the pistol is empty.
Close the slide.
Cock the hammer.
Put safety on safe.
Press the release button and take off the slide.
Remove barrel and spring from the slide.


No further disassembly is required.
