  1. Thanks to all for the support and encouragement for a long and difficult project. Anyone can be a copycat, but it's hard to come up with something that's never been done before.
  2. That's a good idea. But I'm going to wait until the patent is filed, I have a good idea of the cost, and the whole project is closer to being ready to roll out before I take any money. Once everything is ready to go, I'll just take orders and fill them. Thanks for the idea, though. That would be similar to "crowd funding" , which is working well for some new products.
  3. These will initially be for K,L, and N frame guns with the firing pin in the frame. If your gun already has a really nice action, 6 lb. or better, you probably don't need this. There are fewer and fewer good revo smiths out there, widely scattered across the country. It's very expensive to ship a gun to any of them, usually with a several month waiting time. This product is mainly intended for the average person to have a good DA without the need to send their gun off for work. It allows the gun owner to set up their gun to their personal needs and preferences and make chang
  4. Looks like I was out of the loop on that one. I never heard about it at the time. Thanks for the info.
  5. Cool! Maybe you'll get to meet Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman!
  6. The trigger pull will vary according to what rebound spring is in there. With only the trigger and rebound, hammer out, the trigger pull will be around 2 lb. with the lightest rebound spring, around 4 lb. with the factory rebound spring. All the other weights of rebound springs will be somewhere between those. These will be DA only to start with, although a DA/SA version is possible in the future. My prototype guns set up for Federal primers start at around 6 lb. and go down to around 2-1/2 lb. at the end. Essentially, the trigger pull just gets lighter until it's gone. You can dial it up to w
  7. An 8 pound trigger pull is still pretty heavy by today's standards. Smooth is always good regardless of pull weight.
  8. That was Cylinder and Slide. I am hoping to have my hammer kit out before the end of the year. It is in the patent process now. It will be interesting to see what everyone thinks about it.
  9. Why not just use 9mm, that's what it's chambered for. The 9mm brass is a lot cheaper, the moon clips for it are thicker.
  10. I just hold the bottom end in hand, put the top (hook) end on the bench and thumb in the middle. That gives it a big radius. You don't want tight bends in a mainspring. You can make it more bent or straighter that way.
  11. Most folks don't KNOW that you can just bend the spring. That's what Wolff does. Their #2 spring is just a #1 with a bend in it. You can bend either one of them to make it the other one.
