    S&W Auto Pistols - 39, 59, and 69 - Final 7 Quiz Questions!

    I am semi-retired and I am taking a self-passed and self-taught Armorers course on S&W Auto Pistols. I hope to become a part-time light Gunsmith in the future.

    There are over 60 quiz questions covering this firearm and I have answered most of them. During my study and research I am having some problems related to some of the following final 5 quiz questions. Either I am not sure of the correct answer or I have conflicting answers. Need help choosing the correct answers.

    Can you help me determine the correct answers for these few final 7 quiz questions?

    Thanks for your help.

    Note #6. When the magazine is not in the gun, the draw bar cannot pull the hammer back-True or False

    Note #20. What part must come off in order to get the firing pin blocking plunger (firing pin safety lever plunger) out of the slide?
    a) The extractor
    b) The rear sight
    c) The Pelosi widget

    Note #22. The sear spring is held in place by
    a) The back strap (insert)
    b) Loctite
    c) A bumped pin
    d) Sideplate

    Note #23. How much spring out should the extractor have?
    a) .050"
    b) .015"
    c) .025"
    d) just over .030"

    Note #24. Filing or stoning away mass from the extractor's limiting pad will cause the extractor to move in what direction when it is in working position inside of the slide?
    a) Inward
    b) Outward
    c) Up
    d) Down

    Note #27. The correct way to put the drawbar back into the frame is with the trigger play spring pointing down - True or False

    Note #28. The sear should go back into the frame before or after the disconnector goes back into the gun?
    a) Before
    b) After

    #6-True, The magazine safety will prevent the drawbar from engaging the hammer/sear.
    #20-The rear sight, The plunger and spring are held captive by the rear sight.
    #22- A bumped pin, The sear spring is held in place by a crosspin in the frame
    #23- Not sure, but just over .030 seems correct. I've never seen the factory spec on this.
    #24- Inward, The limiting pad limits the inwaed travel of the extractor. Removal of material will increase extractor engagement.
    #27- False, the play spring faces up when the trigger bar is installed correctly.
    #28- Before, the sear will hold the disconnector in place when it is installed first. Otherwise you will play heck trying to keep the disconnector in the hole while fitting the sear.
    Good luck!
