without some experience and the proper tools ( or close enough that you can figure it out) id let a smith do the work. especially as it is kinda aged and not something that you wish to go joy ridding with.
Arthritis sucks big-big
Why do those elected to positions of power than work so hard
to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them

Should you decide to do the work yourself, I would suggest the following book. I have his S&W book and it is excellent.

Mainspring is the likely problem. Had the same issue with a 1969 Trooper. Had the selling dealer put in a new mainspring and problem solved.

The mainspring on that revolver also rebounds your trigger so it's not a straight install. If you attempt it I would take plenty of pictures. You also have to manipulate the cylinder latch when replacing the side plate.

Thanks everyone. I posted the same question over at colt forum and got pretty much the same info, seems main spring is most likely the problem. Anyway I found and ordered a mainspring, should be here by the end of the week. I talked to an old gunsmith who I trust and has been doing revolver work for a very long time and he said he can put it in no problem, he's very familiar with colt revolvers.
