The sear cages are only "new" the first couple of times. After that they are just aggravating.Hear, hear
By aggravating he means fun, he is just misrepresenting it because he want to keep all of the fun to him self.
You, sir, get the first official chuckle of the day. It's getting late, so you know I thought it was a good one.
I won't say I enjoy the old Rugers (taking them down/cleaning them and putting them back together) but I don't mind. I think we've got 4, maybe 5 of them in the family. Three 5.5" bull barrels and one 4" tapered barrel. All MK1's but one that's too old to have MK1 stamped on it. Wonderful pistols. My brother told me one time he never new a .22 pistols could shoot like a rifle till he saw me shoot my Ruger MK1. Wish I could still do that with it.
Don't know if I mentioned it or not, but my newest Compact was still sealed in the CZ case when I picked it up from the FFL I order through. I never dry fired it. When I took it down and put the extended firing pin, new firing pin return spring and lighter firing pin block spring in it the original roll pin in the slide that hold the firing pin in was already dented in on the side towards the hammer.
I don't know if they dry fire them at the factory quite a bit, or if the firing pin was just striking the roll pin that hard with the original hammer spring installed and it was fired. Hopefully, if that was it then I'll not have to worry about it because of the new CGW extended firing pin and 15 lb. hammer spring and CGW's roll pin.
