Cone Hammer Trigger
« on: October 11, 2020, 09:34:40 AM »
I have searched the internet to the extent of my abilities, and have not been able to find the answer I'm looking for.  How is the trigger mechanism removed from a Cone Hammer?I can see why Mauser changed the design of the trigger and firing pin on the Large Ring.  Removing the firing pin is a real pain.  Try though I may, I still haven't been able to figure out the trigger.

Your question is about a specific weapon that you have and cannot disassemble, or..?

The Cone Hammer trigger is not the same as the Large Ring and later models.  I know how to remove the later model trigger, but the Cone Hammer seems to elude me.

Thanks for the explanation. I think my question has been misunderstood. Then I ask differently: Do you have a certain Conehammer pistol or do you just want to improve your general knowledge?

I have a Cone Hammer, Ser. #85xx.  When I purchase a new weapon I disassemble it completely to inspect it and clean it.  I have not been able to figure out how to disassemble the trigger.

In general, as you can see on the picuture, the piece is sitting on two nodges (A and B), so you need to lift it first up a bit (C) and then in pull in direction D.
Normally the piece should slide out easily after a bit of pressure. If it does not slide out easily, then it usally means its corroded or there is some dirt there.
I suggest you try some rust remover or some other cleaning product.
If its stuck there due to dirt, you may use some wood piece to carefully hammer it upwards.

I'm curious, did you manage to get it out based on the steps provided?
Also, would you mind sharing some images of your weapon?
Ideally like one from each angle (top, back and from the side)
I'm particular curious about the serial number and how it looks overall.
If you are hesitant to share it in public, i would be grateful if you could share it with me via PM.
I would like these images for my collection.

I apologize for taking so long to respond.  To answer your question, yes.  Your instructions worked perfectly.  The trigger came out with no problems at all.  I have attached a couple of pictures as you requested, but I'm afraid my skills at photography are not very good.

Thanks for the pictures, these are great!
Im glad to hear that the trigger came off with no issue.
Im still interested in the serial number, would you mind sharing it with me?
I assume that i probably wont need it, since im assuming that the last two digits are 48, but it would be great to know for sure.

I tried to get a picture of the serial number, but it was so blurry you couldn't read it.  8628Hope this helps in whatever your doing.

Thanks for serial number, i really appreciate it!
Since you wrote a couple posts back, that the serial number starts with 85, i assumed you bought the 8548 model from Hermann Historica, since your pistol showed some similiar blemishes.
Was this just a typo or it is it a different weapon?

It was a typo.  I guess I hit "5" instead of "6".  I didn't notice it until you mentioned it.  I bought this at a local gun shop.  It was there on consignment.  The seller inherited it from his grandfather.  He had no use for it so he sold it for a very good price.
