Wow this is an impressive grave post. Almost 2 years and you haven't figured out the mechanics of a cap gun.

I think you might just want to leave it.

I seem to have fixed mine. I got an assortment of springs from Home Depot by Everbilt. Picked a light-weight compression spring, about 1/2-inch in diameter, and 1/2 inch long, and inserted it between the barrel and the cylinder (with the retractable rod through it). That exerted enough pressure to hold the cylinder against the little lever that pops up when the hammer is pulled back, allowing it to connect with the pegs on the cylinder. If it gets hung up, grease the thing with petroleum jelly.

Not sure what are the “spring & feeder plate” you mentioned.

I think the problem is a rare design flaw by Hubley.

Hope this works for you (and continues to work for me!). By Leonard Hughes (11/29/2018)
