    Yes, having a thick, heavy wood bench is a good thing to have to manually set the firing pin by pushing the cocking piece pin(round button) against. I still remember figuring that out for the first time.

    My method, remove the BAS completely, the put it back in with only 2 turns, now most likely you can set the cocking pin with your thumb (or very light pressure with the door jamb or bench top). Tighten the BAS, done deal.
