On A Mission

I did an inventory discovering what was missing or broken. The usual stuff like V-springs, sears, etc. were needed. I lucked out though, finding what I needed at Numrich. As is usually the case, these old parts come from used guns Numrich buys, and rarely fit as delivered. I had to TIG weld-up the DA sear and recut it, make a V-spring and generally repair the damage from the abuse the gun had survived in its life. But I got it running and I knew the owner would be awfully happy. I took a short video of the DA working at my bench, for the first time in something like 45 or 50 years. I have to admit it’s always satisfying to bring an old gun back to life.
