Using a stabilizer in BE competition

Being a shaky 75 year old I installed a stabilizer on my Mk.3. It is 14" long and has 5 ounces of lead on the end. It attaches to the rear of the grip and does not touch the arm or body. The captain of our team thinks it is legal and my research has not found a rule against it. I am asking if anyone...

Bullseye practice timer- Scrolling display

This battery powered scrolling display can be used as a practice timer for timed and rapid fire. It scrolls the message Ready--Set--Go--1---2---3---4---5---6---7---8---9---10--11--12--13--14--15--16--17--18--19--20--END-END-END then repeats the message over and over until turned off. It uses a CR 20...

Pre-travel

Nice job on the pretravel screw.Just for others info, what size screw did you use. I have also D+T a trigger and my reciever for a rail. Most of this is possible without special jigs or even a drill press. Just has to proceed with caution and THINK before you do anything.

Check sear pin

My guess is the sear pin is not engaging the frame on one side(proabably the R.H. side). This may be due to the new grips not contacting the frame at the sear pin. I scotch tape this pin in.

If you have an adjustable trigger then you proabably have the pretravel screw in too far. If not look for dirt or debris in the trigger or plunger.

My guess

First cartridge splits it"s base as it fires and either hot gas or shrapnel ignites the second cylinder. The second cylinder's base is ussupported as it is not in battery and as the projectile goes forward the case back out of the cylinder. While backing out of the cylinder it encounters the frame a...

Sear pin

I think they charge $10 for shipping so you might as well get some extra springs and stuff while you are ordering.

22/45

For the money I doubt that you can come close to the 22/45. I recently got a "plain jane" 22/45 (4.5" blued) for $ 275 and it shoots as good as my 6" Mk.3. If you can find someone who has one and try it out. I think that will sell you on it.

Strut

Think bigfatdave is right on the money. Look in the back and you will see the strut caught. Just pull back on it and the bolt will be free to travel all the way back.- Stew

Mk.3 22/45 std. w/fixed sight- D+T

Recently read somewhere that new production Std. models would also be D+T and am posting to confirm this. Last week my wife and I went shopping for a new pistol for her (sold her Sig Mosquito) and looked at a 4.5 inch slab side 22/45 with fixed sights. Initially I thought that this would be a non D+...

Sounds like your pretavel screw is moving and needs some blue locktight.
Your initial adjustment was apparently OK. Readjust and locktight. The spring that comes with the trigger will proabably give you less than 2# pull.
I used the original to keep mine over 2#.

Volquartsen Volthane LEFT HAND Mark 2 grips on Mark 3

If you are a LH person like me (in my right mind) and like the Volthane grips for your Mark 3 you are out of luck. They only make them in RH for the Mark 3. However if you don't mind a little mod. you can use the LH Mark 2 Volthanes as everything is the same other than the Mag.Release.[img] I used a...
