In reassembling my Beretta Tomcat (Inox), I may
need some help in techniques for getting the
hammer-spring resinstalled. In the attached
picture, you can see that the spring has separated
from its two parts.
Any suggestions?
Also, is there a complete set of reassembly instructions
somewhere on the internet?
(I think the hammer-spring part is the only part I will
need help on. It is incredibly stiff -- it is hard to see
how to get it reconnected to the attached shown pieces with
your fingers alone...)
(I have another Tomcat Inox; so, I can see where everything is supposed to go.)

I got it back together again.
That's the good news.
The bad news is that the 'polishing' of the single-action surface of the hammer I executed
did not get rid of the 'sticky' / stick-slip / 'gritty' nature of the single-action trigger. I have
had six of these Inox's, and this is the first/only one that had a gritty single-action trigger...

The hammer spring is a real bugger! Took apart one of my Bobcats (almost 35yrs old) for a long overdue overhaul. Real battle to get the spring back in as it is very strong and requires a lot of compression.
The "sticky" may not be in the trigger but the connecting bar rubbing against the frame. On that gun, mine showed considerable wear from the friction. Polished up bright the inward face of the bar and the frame and treated with MolyLube which greatly smoothed out the trigger pull.
It also had considerable "peaning" on the tracks of the slide that was making it almost impossible to remove. A little filing and polishing along with some re-peaning effort on the frame. The real problem was the cross pins for the ejector which had worked out to the left and become flattened out against the frame. Had to grind off the excess.
Inox version has not shown any considerable wear or problem.

Forget a factory overhaul ...
As the gun was almost one of the first Bobcat 21A produced, and has thousands of rounds through it, I called Beretta Service Dept. about doing a refurb on it.
They were pretty blunt about the refurb being almost the cost of a new one!

It has been sucessfully salvaged and turned over to son who continues to shoot and carry it.

Did you polish the sear surface?
