Not sure what you mean about the hammer "not staying in place". Will it not cock and catch the sear notch? I fitted a hammer and trigger and cylinder from an italian Navy Arms Remington to an original Remington which took a lot of work as they made the foreign stuff to metric measurements and the original was non standard us measurements. It finally worked enough to be shot but the balls are too small to shoot accurately as the original used a larger ball in the cylinder. Next step is to ream out the cylinder to the original Remington diameter. The original had been overloaded at some time and split the original cylinder and the whole thing was dropped in a bunch of old chains and junk and had become a ball of rust. The recovery was a real job but it belonged to my Grandfather so I spent the time to get it back into shooting condition.
