Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Okay, I just threw caution to the wind and shortened my S & W 1917 Main Spring. It started out measuring 3.443 inches long...I annealed about 5/16 ths of the bottom end to lessen the chance of it breaking when I bent it. I bent about 3/16 of an inch of the bottom end about 90 degrees and then with t...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

1917 TRIGGER JOB - - DSC_0004.JPG All of this is just my opinion – just what I have concluded in the past few days. Okay.....If one may wish to do a good Trigger Job on a S & W Model 1917, and reduce the single action and double action trigger pulls to what ever they may desire, by using ‘All’ of th...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Just some more of ‘For What It’s Worth’ - The spring job on the S & W 36 came out just fine. The double action trigger pull is now about 6 & 1/2 pounds with the single action about 3 & 1/4. I can fire 5 rounds in less that 2 seconds without any practice. I can make videos but I haven’t figured out h...

https://rense.com/general70/doro.htm Okay, Trump has been saying all along to get going and get this oil out and become the number one oil producer in the world. The evidence of this has just started here in Colorado. And if allowed to go as fast as can be, there is no telling what it will do to and...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Let me revisit this Boeing 737 issue again just because it is in the news again. All of these grounded planes are just setting around costing gobs of money for not being in service. Politics and money are at the root of this – big, big money. Big players are all vying for what they can get out of it...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

HIT N’ MISS---- I have been messing with my S & W Springs the last couple of days. I have always been frustrated with the hard trigger pulls but have never really looked into it. I now seeeee the light – simple. Just like, “It is simple once one knows how.” I was watching Jerry Miculek’s ‘S & W Spri...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

I have never seen this mentioned before but just something to play with....take three coils off of a regular 1911 recoil spring and shoot reduced loads, 3 or 3 1/2 grains of Bullseye and light bullets and notice the shorter recovery time in rapid fire. I aways thought of porting the barrel and slide...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

DSC_0001.JPG AGAIN – JUST FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH---- But oh my gosh....The double action trigger pull on my S & W 1917 went from maybe 15 pounds to about 8. I can’t find my trigger scale, I am just guessing. What I did was clean and polish things, re lubricate and reduce the strength of the trigger re...

Re: SOME THOUGHTS ON ACCURACY & OTHERS

Capture.PNG When we were here in summer of 95 there was no activity or dirt work done in this spot just north of Fairbanks – just an old dredge setting there, but it was known that bedrock was 25 feet down. I looked around with my metal detector – nothing. Years ago the old timers had dug holes thr...

This is some of the dirt work just at the north end of the Reservoir (Parker Lake), I did not see this when we were there so I will assume that it has been done since.
