    692 trigger job and other stuff

    Ok I finished the trigger job, did it in three stages, 1st factory springs work on DA only smooth it up 2hrs

    2nd New springs ten pound VS 14# work on SA action was difficult as the jig had trouble with holding the trigger. First I shorten the hammer notch from .030 to 0.023, still got creep 2hrs

    3rd decide to RECUT trigger sear angle increase it. set up jig to match current angle and raise jig two clicks, try it not enough, set it up again and 2 more clicks recut. This time pretty good. So that apart again and jig up and polish with ceramic stone 1000 grit, stones to mirror polish. Very happy with this MIM works like A2 tool steel. 3hrs

    4th Thinking pull, finally test fire, really smacks the primers large deep indent. Then I go after first stage trigger spring cut two coils off ten pound spring. Test fire wonderful, right up there with my Randy Lee DA trigger, beautiful timing, as good as my long hand S&W. SA is great no creep 2/3 # range. Also smoothed the cylinder opening drag, the latch is right out of a 1911 mag release, polish latch and cit two coils off, now jumps right open and latches easily. Perfect for fast reloads.

    Now I'll the buy red dot mount and some wood grips. It is only 7 shot but I like better than the S&W and about $400 cheaper.Plus I like steel.

    Very interesting! Do you have any photos of the work in progress?

    Still getting good hard primer strikes with the latest springs?

    So bored today in between watching a slow moving storm and intermittent rain, what to do? The Loctite is dry let's test the 692 with TK custom moon clips, red dot and grips before range trip to zero. So I load up a TK CLIP with the aluminum cased federal 115gr 9mm ammo. Open the porch door and put 7 shots in the dirt, come back in to inspect primer strikes. Gun and sight functioned well, but I open the cylinder and push the ejector rod and it says no. I push harder, still no, so I take cylinder out, just a button push. Look thinks over and tap the ejector on the desk and finally they eject. I inspect the cylinders and they look fine just that nitride finish. Now I want to use Alum case ammo but sure won't be any fast reloads. So I get cylinder polishing hone brush out and the oil it needs and I slick up the cylinders. I had already bevel the edge, but now fresh moon just falls right in. Test again still STUCK, so I lube the cylinder with a little spray silicone, test, better but no prize. Test with brass, fly's right out. Now I know why my 1911 plate gun eject the alum cases about 1/2 the distance of the brass cases. So can't use alum case if you might need a fast reload.

    aluminum , being softer than brass, expands out and does not spring back like brass cases do. The softer case also deforms to the surface of the cylinders more and sticks to surface tighter. The black oxide finish may also provide a rougher surface for the aluminum to stick to? It will be interesting for you to compare the results with brass cases to the aluminum.

    The Judge and the 692 are the same.
    RANGE REPORT Well things didn't go as planned. First the range usually has a front rest in the sign in shack where the 3x4 cardboard targets are but somebody misplaced it so only had gun bag to rest on. Also it was late and the sun was not glaring so I turned down the dot on the new vemon 6 moa red dot. The dot wasn't a dot but a dot with a line poking out at about 8 o'clock making about a 9 moa. It will be returned. For target I mounted six ten in paper plates with 1.5" square black tape in the middle. Incredibly the first shot at 26 yards hit black tape. Had to do no zeroing amazing, but four in the black and pulled three about 2-3" low. Then I ran seven more freehand double action, had three touching black and the rest inside 6 inches. Federal 115gr alum case 9mm.

    Next I was zeroing in my CMMG guard pistol, aka brace with an EoTech 512, 9 inch barrel. Had changed the comp and new 512 it also had shadow dot when turned way down. I bought both of these off different vendors on Ebay, going to get a bunch of dots out the safe and see if its me or are two ebay dots seconds. It will be returned also, ARGH. naturally it shot tighter group 5 out 7 in the black, but center dot is 1 moa and was easier to hold steady with rest.

    So I can't say I know how accurate it is but passed as a keeper, when new dots come in and I bring my old weighted cast iron, lead shot filled front bag and brighter sun I get down to finding my/gun limit.
