Quick question regarding wedge assembly. Is this the correct orientation for the wedge spring, i.e. concave surface up with thick spring end to the left (same side as thick end of wedge)? I purchased this revolver with the wedge inserted/jammed upside down. Thanks for the help!

The American Civil War
The American Civil War, arguably the most traumatic event in the history of the United States, was fought from 1861 to 1865, and was the culmination of sectional issues which deeply divided the country between a pro-Federal government North and a pro-states rights, in the pro-slavery South, whose eleven states formed a breakaway government called the Confederate States of America. The costliest war in terms of human lives, the American Civil War claimed in excess of 620,000 battle or disease-related deaths - roughly two percent of the country's total population, and nearly more deaths than all other American wars combined.
