Won"t budge with safety's off. I did take a little plastic off the grips.

Believe I have it figured out. Not that complicated.

Does the hammer have to be cocked before putting the parts back in? It is hard to keep the parts lined up wants to fly apart when pushing upward.

To reassemble the hammer and mag catch the hammer needs to be UN-cocked and as far forward as possible.
As much tension needs to be off as possible.

It's going to need some pressure to get the holes lined up.
The factory has special assembly fixtures to do this.

I got it back together but the hammer won't go forward
With the mag catch on, the mag wouldn't go in, so I took the catch off to get a mag in.
Pretty sure the spring housing hole on the end favored the inside of the frame

At this point I'd recommend taking it to a gunsmith.
It's very difficult to diagnose a problem without actually being able to see it.

You said the hammer should go forward by pulling the hammer all the way back and pulling the trigger but it wouldn't do it with the hammer spring parts out, even after taking the hammer out and moving it forward. Does that tell you anything?

How can I post pictures?
Thanks

Aha, I just looked closer at the schematic.... The Model 80 has a magazine safety.... the hammer can't operate unless a magazine is in the gun.

Part 17.....

To post photos on most sites, you need to use a photo hosting site.
You sign up for a free site, and use their instructions on how to upload a picture or photo.
Once you have the photo uploaded, you use that site to link the photos on a forum like this.
Once you get the hang of it it's much easier then it sounds.....

A favorite free site is....

https://imgur.com/?

Just sign up following their instructions, then upload the photos using their instructions.
Once it's uploaded, see a green colored "button" on the upper right of the home page. It'll usually have your initial on the button.
Click on that and select "Images" and it'll take you to your photos.
Click on a photo you want to post on a site and it'll take you to to a large picture of it with various ways to link it on the right side.
The one to use for most sites is the next to last...BBCode.

Then just go to a site, start a post, and where in the post you want the picture, just key the right-click of you mouse and key "PASTE".
When you post the message the picture will be there.
Note that you may need to go back to the hosting site and pick a different size on the bottom of that page if your posted photo in a post is too large.

Hey
Got most of it figured out. The trigger bar was dropping down and wouldn't go back far enough to trip the sear. I am not sure what holds it up but it seems to be working now. Still have to get the catch spring back in.
