Hogue Cylinder Releases

I appear to have missed the boat with my getting my 3D printed ones ready for sale, a bit! I haven't quite worked out how to keep them from breaking under the shock of the cylinder moving backward—even shooting ~130PF loads exclusively, they don't last for more than a thousand rounds or so.

 

I put in my pre-order (how could I not, as That Ruger Guy), but I'll be continuing development of the plastic parts anyway—where the paddle on the Hogue part cants outward from the frame somewhat, mine cants inward, which I think makes it easier to get a thumb onto it quickly.

 

The overall size of the Hogue paddle seems pretty nearly ideal for competition use, though. I'm glad they didn't skimp on the length, in particular.

Did you try it on the GP100 22lr ?

I dinged up my latch screw quite a bit, running it in and out for testing. Eventually, I 'fabricated' a tool for it: I bought some cheap bits of the right thickness (0.04") and ground the width down with a Dremel until they fit the screw (about 0.1").

 

The screw does have Loctite on it, but it's relatively easy to get a soldering iron onto it to free it up.
