My alpha is the 74MS. Putting it back together yesterday, I can’t seem to get the cocking handle section to fully close. I’m sure it did previously.
Anyone who has one, is that 40mm distance between the clip at the back of the spring and the rear of the nylon section the same on yours? The nylon piece that gets pulled back by the piston is as far forward as it can go, up against the rear of the cylinder.
This pic is with the gap at front closed. See how the nylon piece now sits up on the cylinder.
Thanks in advance for any help.
