Can you make a video detailing how to do a trigger job, particularly cutting the primary and secondary angle of the sear and squaring the hammer hooks? Request for a focused video on the hooks and angles...thanks so much. Pardon for these, im just curious on how to properly do it.

Two problems with this video idea: The first is that we use a proprietary trigger job system and telling the World would be counter productive. The second is that we want to avoid the liability issue that could arise, as cutting sears is very difficult to do correctly.

(One think to watch out for is the specs on the frame of the gun. Often we find that the sear pin and hammer holes are cut incorrectly changing the relationship between the hammer hooks and sear face.)

Hey Adam,

Loving your videos on YouTube and have learned a lot. Would it be possible to go more in depth of what it takes to do the smoothing, breaking the corners and polishing things to make it smooth? I'd love to learn more how to do that. Another great subject would be how to translate some of your knowledge to other platforms. I'd love to be able to smooth out my other guns, especially my Beretta 92.

I will add a video about edges and polishing soon, be careful on guns that are loose not to remove material. This can cause lots of problems.

I understand Adam. Your videos on youtube are really informative. Keep it up and looking forward for more informative videos.

Yeah, my 92 is solid with no play at all while my Hi Power can rattle so I won't be doing anything to that one.

I think a video series documenting a custom build would be really cool. No need to reveal any of the secrete sauce, just a high level overview of the steps you take and things you look for from start to finish.

Feel free to use my build if you like!!

Question on recoil spring weight: you seem to mention recoil springs more on the light side for open and limited guns, I don't remember exactly what the numbers were - maybe 7 lb for open and 10ish pounds for limited?

Doesn't going too light make the recoil impact to the rear seem harsh, and can that impact damage the firearm in any way with the lighter springs?

The guns need to be set up in a way that keeps the slide from slamming into the frame. You can make open guns run on 7lb springs and 10 lb or lighter springs run limited guns without the slide hitting the frame in a problematic way. Shock buffs help but the gun is all a system and all the parts need to work together.

A video about what makes a good CCW pistol. I'm in the market for one and would like to hear your opinion on how to build the perfect CCW. What length? Do you need a steel grip? Ideal total weight?

Not sure we have one answer to that question as each persons situation would dictate what kinda gun you would want to carry. I will do a video next time we build a carry gun less then 5in.

The important part is that works. So many sub 5in guns don't cycle well. I would want to test each gun and ammo combo until I was sure it way reliable.
