  1. Sear isn't resetting. The sear could be too long or more than likely the reset clearance angle isn't big enough. The reset angle is the small angle at the bottom of the sear between the flat face of the sear and the bottom of the sear where the trigger lifts the sear when shooting DA.
  2. Welcome to the forum. If you aren't already a member look into Silver Creek Conservation Club in Sellersburg. A really nice range and they have USPSA, IDPA, Steel Challenge, Trap and NRL .22 matches. USPSA match this Sunday. Look me up if any questions.(I'm the Treasurer of the club)
  3. K,L,N, and X frame with 5,6,7,8,10 shots all have the same trigger travel and can interchange the triggers among the frame sizes.
  4. Alright nobody else is going to ask so I will. How do you know this? Sounds like it could be a good story.
  5. Good points. What about the production shooter that has a brain fart while making ready and pulls the trigger before grabbing/lowering the hammer on their CZ? What about a classifier with multiple strings. Shooter shoots first string and during make ready for second string does a practice draw with a still loaded gun. Has a brain fart and draws and aims down range and touches one off. I guess this OK now? I have seen both of these happen at level 4 matches and they were DQ'ed.
  6. Really I have been avoiding this thread because some just don't get it. Participation ribbons WTH I have shot Revolver many times at level 2 matches and there have not been enough shooters to recognize the division. I paid the same as everyone else and paid travel expenses and motels just like everyone else and shot for FUN as there was no ribbons involved. No nothing just shoot for fun. As the saying goes if we have to explain it you just don't understand it. The National thing doesn't matter as there has never been a stand alone Revolver nationals it is always tagged on at the end of or during other division nationals. I don't care what division you shoot and I care even less that you are worried about Revolver shooters. Also you still haven't answered how or why killing off Revolver would help USPSA.
  7. Some of us use that technique on S&W's Works on Colts also and Ruger like you mentioned.
  8. Been wearing one of these last few months. Only down side so far is I use to take earmuffs off while scoring or pasting targets because the muffs are hot and I can't now without taking the whole hat off. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Earmuff-Compatible-Hat-Breeze-Mesh-Gusset-Newcastle-Hats-Wide-Broad-Brim-Unisex/123310053553
  9. Don't file or stone and remove the damage. Take a small hammer or hammer and punch and try to put the metal back in the damaged area GENTLY. You can then touch up with a stone if there is any high spots. If really bad you can take a small center punch and on the back side(the flat side) and center punch both side of the damaged area and that will move some metal back into the damaged area and fill it in. Don't get carried away and bend the crane. After a few repairs it might have to be welded and any decent TIG guy that has SS experience can touch it up. What causes this? Usually a loose yoke screw. I have seen several yoke screws that the plunger is stuck in. Hard to tell by looking but measuring them shows they are stuck. This can cause the damage or even let the cylinder fall out while the yoke screw is tight. I always put a drop of oil on the plunger when I do a compete cleaning(which is not that often). Yoke screws are cheap and do need to be replaced every once in a while.
  10. I think it was a Wilson but it shouldn't make any difference who makes it. It is a round wire spring because that is what I had laying around. Yes it fits over the stock guide rod. BTW a Glock spring will fit over the stock guide rod if you cut the ends off as the end is slightly smaller. A 13 pound Glock round wire spring cut to 135 mm length should work but I haven't tested that yet. The Glock spring has a smaller ID but still fits over the guide rod.
  11. Looks like registration is closed. No way to sign up now? Yeah I waited late but wasn't sure if I was going to be able to make it.
  12. SF with SRO on it. Shooting 147 SNS roundnose with 3 grains of Sport Pistol make 133 PF. I'm using the stock guide rod and a 13 pound 1911 full size spring cut to 135 MM length. Gun is running fine so far with this setup over 200 rounds is all I have had time to shoot it so far with this setup. Ran 300 with some factory I had laying around and stock guide rod and spring. No issues with that set up either.
  13. Paul- I have a Ruger Wrangler that I would like you to take a look at and possibly do a trigger job on-. It is a single action 22lr revolver that I want to use as a practice gun for cowboy action. Thinking about a 2.5# trigger pull to match my 38 spl Ruger Vaqueros. When will you be at Owensboro next time for a match? I can meet you there. John Wedig- tel 812-473-2596

  14. The Survey needed more details. I said no to L6 major even without knowing that the scoring was the same. I said yes to rimfire because there have been shooters ask about shooting rimfire at the local ICORE matches(when we used to have them). I commented on the survey that while steel is a problem that can be addressed by any hit in say the circle of a pepper popper would count lots of clubs use swingers and other targets that are activated by falling steel this would be a problem. Said yes to snubby but also commented on survey that what is the definition of a snubby? A J frame shooting against a N frame 8 shot will not be popular. Needed more info to make a decision and a thread like this to discuss it before the survey was sent.
