I have a Pistolet Automatique Jieffeco Dispose 25 cal. Serial No 32147. When it is fired it picks up the next round but does not cock the hammer. I lived in Michigan and would like to get this repaired if possible.
I have asked different gunsmith in the area but they say they cannot get the parts
Good afternoon, The problem you have is that you are dealing with an obscure, Belgian made handgun that is 100 years old. There is no supply of parts regularly available.As I see it, you have 3 choices:1) Find a gunsmith that can make the parts that need to be replaced.2) Find a "parts gun" on a gun auction site, and cannibalize the parts between the 2 to make one complete, working gun.3) Relegate the gun to curio status.Obviously, you would like to get it fixed. The problem is that you are dealing with a gun that in working order, is worth $100 - $150. The cost of having a gunsmith make the parts and fix it may outweigh the value of the gun. If the gun has sentimental value, then you may not care about the cost.I would suggest speaking to some gunsmiths in your area and get an estimate in making the parts and completing the repair. I would additionally suggest that you scan the auction sites and look for a parts gun. That should save some money in gunsmithing fees.Best of luck to you....
What parts would be needed to fix it
I cannot say with absolute certainty because we're talking about a 100 year old Belgian gun. I've never seen one in person, just due to its obscurity. Sight unseen, I would say that some part related to the hammer cocking is the culprit....could be the hammer itself, hammer spring, etc. I can't say. I'm sure that if a gunsmith breaks it down, he can easily narrow down where the problem area is.
