that is normal you need to push the long in of the pin in first. this will help you need to align the holes up too at the same time use a punch to help guide it from the other side.

That's likely the J-pin in the hammer. See the slot in the middle of your hammer pin. The J-pin in the hammer locks into that to help prevent the pin from walking out under fire. You sometimes have to give it a tap to get the pin past the J-pin.

How much of a tap.

Light tap with a standard hammer should do it.

Align the receiver holes with the hole in the hammer. Push a pin in from both sides to keep everyting aligned. They will stop when they hit the "J" pin. Tap the pin you want to use to secure the hammer with a standard hammer. Once it gets past the "J" pin it's smooth sailing.

Put the selector in and rotate it about halfway between fire and safe. It should push in with a little wiggling at that point. FWIW, I always install my selector lever first.

I can get it in but then the hammer does not drop.
