      I been thinking of doing some trigger work on my 10/22 and came across your May post regarding 10/22 trigger work. I appreciate the information you offered and was wondering if you still have that "helpful" pdf file available? If you don't mind sending me a copy, my email is [email protected]

      I took me a few years but I finally got smart and bought a cheap lap top to put e-books on so I can read in bed. I must have used two or three old growth trees back then for printing stuff out.

      Hey MadCrateBuilder.. I've recently aquired a 10/22 and I've been doing some trigger work, chamfering, autobolt release...the works - by myself. I am a newbie tho and I was searching for something to reduce my trigger pull even more and I ran across an old post from you where you mentioned a .pdf file with instructions to modify the hammer. (something about tap and drill..) I was hoping that you could email the file to me at [email protected] it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

      I take the wood off, barrel and cylinder on the open tops and cylinder only with the top strap models. All metal parts go in the dishwasher with barrels and chambers up. i use the regular dishwasher soap tab. Run the complete wash and rinse cycle. I then use compressed air to completely blow dry, if you don't have compressed air you can put them in a warm oven, 175-200 degrees for 10 minutes or so. The parts are pretty hot when you take them out and dry fast. Then I spray them down with Ballistol. Ballistol emulsifies any moisture left behind, lubes and prevents any rust. Run a patch down the barrel and chambers, make sure the lube gets worked into the action. Word of caution, don't let the wife see any mess you make! I ussally pull the nipples and clean and anti seize them. I suppose you could use WD40 instead of Ballistol as it well displace any moisture. I would keep an eye on them for a few days just to be sure your getting all the moisture off them.

      You just run the cap and ball pistol through the dishwasher? Cylinder gets removed, it gets washed too? Any problems with this? Special soap? Let me know. I like the fire and smoke but hate the clean up. Thanks!

      Hey Pal
      I Picked up a new to me toy today for $100.00. It is an italian Brass frame Black Powder revolver in .44 Caliber. I have not fired many Black powder revolvers, so I could use a little advice. I Bought some Traditions .44 round lead balls to shoot in it that are .451 Diameter. I also Bought the .44 wads. I have a can of Hodgens R-S Powder on hand I would like to use up before switching to P-Powder Pyrodex. Do you know how many grains of Powder I want to use in this revolver shooting these lead balls and this R-S Pyrodex Powder ? Thanks, Hammerdown... Kurt

      DO NOT CUT THE HAMMER SPRING! A reduced power spring in a 10/22 well lead to light strikes and FTF. E-mail me and I well forward some .pdf files on working your 10/22.

      Hey man do you think you can send me a link on how to sand and stone down the sear and hammer for my rugger 10/22. I bought a VQ hammer kit at a gun show saturday but I dont understand how the hammer will work inside the receiver because its to narrow even with the shims that come with the kit. So I'll just stone down my own hammer and sear and cut a half a coil on both sides of the hammer spring.

      I would love to but your in Arkansas aren't you. The haz-mat fees when shipping just kills the price. If I could get four or five guys together here in my area I would order 25lbs. Split five ways it would be about 65-70 bucks for five pounds. That's enough to reload my Walker three times!
