kevin c Posted March 10, 2004 Share Posted March 10, 2004 Having your gun break at a major match seems to be one of those things that most contestants take pains to prepare for. I only have about 70 thousand rounds through my Limited guns, and perhaps that explains why I've only had one cracked hammer and one lost fiber optic insert in that time (gun still operable in both cases). But my experience makes me wonder just how often things break during matches. I want to know if I really need to spend a couple hundred bucks for an extra matched sear and hammer, tungsten guide rod, aftec, etc., because the breakage is so common or that it's more for my peace of mind. I've read good articles in Front Sight on prepping for a major match in terms of prematch gun maintenance and preventive parts replacement/ spares. I know what is recommended, but what is your actually experience in matches? What actually broke that threatened to stop your match? I know practice should count, but you only waste your time if your gun goes out in practice and you don't have the replacement parts in your bag. I'd like to know what you really needed to have right then at the match. The polling mechanism doesn't allow multiple entries, but please vote for what you consider the most match threatening breakage that acutally happened to you. TIA Kevin C.
