  1. I never drank the Ti kool-aid. I agree it will pretty much prevent the notch peening thing, but that problem is caused mostly by abusive handling, and can be fixed fairly easily. There is no other real advantage, and I have shot (and tuned) LOTS of both types.

    Trigger Job Question

    Not 100% sure about the TK hammer, but the Apex hammer does not have a longer hammer throw. Same arc of travel, same basic geometry as a factory stock hammer.

    Ruger Revolver Triggers?

    A few years ago S&W actually sent me a new 627 to tune for one of their team members! True story.
  4. Mike,


    I hope you received the new loaders in good order. They are now the favorite with the guys at my club. Thanks for being my first customer, that helped kick start my hobby back in 2005.

    All 617s need reaming?

    Or better yet--quit using Aguilla!
  6. How much of a "diehard" could a person be if he didn't already have an 8-shooter and wasn't willing to buy one?
  7. Expanding the division to allow 8-minor was an effort to resuscitate a dying patient. Unfortunately, it was already too late.

    625 loads and other hints

    Most (not all, but most) 625-3s will have chambers that are OK. 625-2s always need reamed, and (oddly enough) most 625-8s. Some 625-3s will need reamed--I suspect these are the earliest specimens where they installed cylinders that were still laying around from the first run of 625-2s. I've never encountered a 625-4 or 625-6 cylinder that needed reamed.

    929 trigger springs

    Be aware that you cannot determine anything from the hits on spent cases. Any hit that fires the round will leave the same indentation in the spent primer.
  10. That seems pretty unlikely.

    2017 USPSA Revolver Nationals

    Yes, but then the number of Revo competitors would instantly drop back down to the miserable level it had reached before they brought it to PASA. Last Nats in Vegas only had 17 wheels. Revo Nats is being propped up by SS shooters who hang around and shoot an extra "fun match" because they are already there.

    Pulling shots while coming off a target

    Dave, sounds to me like he knows what to do, but is having a hard time being patient because it feels like his sights are returning to the target "through syrup." With a revolver, there is no reciprocating slide to help the gun come back down, there is only tension from the shooter's grip on the gun. The syrupy feeling will go away if the sights (1) don't rise as much in the first place, and (2) snap back onto target faster and more positively. Gripping the gun harder will help with both of those.

    Pulling shots while coming off a target

    Most problems like this can be solved by holding onto the gun harder.

    Browning Hi-Power in Single Stack

    ....says the revolver guy?!

    Browning Hi-Power in Single Stack

    I have a really nice custom Hi-Power that came from a friend of mine, and it is an absolute pleasure to shoot. I have won steel matches with it, against shooters using more "modern" designs of all sorts. For me, the Hi-Power has better ergonomics than pretty much any other handgun.
