  1. Be careful as cutting that hammer like that is fine, it is not legal for IDPA. USPSA and ICORE it would be fine. OP didn't state what sport they were shooting.
  2. I have shot lots of major matches where the division I like to shoot(Revo) was not even recognized and yet I still shot Revolver and paid same entry fee and travel expenses and motel and food as everyone else. I had no chance of winning anything but still shot and had fun doing what I enjoy knowing my entry fee helped some other division have a better prize table. While I'm sure some are shooting the smaller divisions because their is less competition I can assure you that some of us are shooting the division we are because of the challenge and fun factor. I don't care what division
  3. Hope you mean lighter HAMMER not trigger. The trigger doesn't have anything to do with light primer strikes. Most 929's run .040 clips with no work but some do require some work.
  4. A different trigger will not make any difference in reliability.
  5. I haven't read the whole thread but check to see if any endshake in the cylinder. Should be .000-.001. Check that the hammer isn't hitting the frame on the way down. Usual spot I have to clear is sideplate - frame junction on right side. Look for drag marks on side of hammer to see if something is rubbing hammer. Check to make sure hammer isn't hitting top of rebound slide when it falls. ( I have never seen this on a newer gun with MIM parts though). Firing pin travel is normal. The firing pins forward travel is stopped by the primer when firing the gun. .040 mo
  6. I do action jobs on S&W revolvers and have had quite a few come thru the shop. I have only seen this hollow pin on 929's. that doesn't mean that they don't use it anywhere else but I haven't seen it. Most of my action work is competition guns and I see lots of 929's and 627's. The old California drop test firing pins were usually around .475-.480 in length and I still see these come in the shop every once in a while.
  7. Stock 929 steel firing pin. Should be .488-.489 long. Why is it hollow? "who knows with S&W"
  8. While that would work at a major match with staff staying on the stage all day, it wouldn't at a local with squad members running the timer and kindle as someone needs to relieve RO and scorekeeper so they can get a break and shoot and load mags.
  9. Had flaking chrome on a 627-4 right on the working surfaces of trigger. Ran it that way for 50k rounds and never thought about. Run it.
  10. I never said that the targets were available from past the 180. Just saying they could have been moved downrange several feet without hurting anything.
  11. The same target presentation could have been done on this stage by moving targets down range several feet and moving the wall to make them available from the same part of the shooting area. With as much room as that stage has no reason to make shots that close to 180 IMO. While as a shooter I don't have any problem with those shots it does make it look questionable when we film it and the camera distorts the view and it makes it look worse than it is. I have seen several pictures or videos like this from matches I have shot and they are no where near being in harms way but it sure lo
  12. Springs interchange. Apex and TK custom make bobbed aftermarket hammers. Power Custom makes some parts like a replacement firing pin for hammers with pin on nose.
  13. 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.
  14. 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)
  15. 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.
