Hammerli history

Does anyone know sources for the history of Hammerli target pistols?

It is my understanding that they started with the 208 in 1966, had a bunch of models including the 208s,212,215 and others, and...

don't shoot

People love their pets. Shooting them with anything, nomatter how harmless, will enrage them and they'll find ways to cause you all kinds of problems.

It's not the dog's fault that it goes into...

Suggestions for the new Woodsman

I have a 1933 Woodsman (1st version). It's beautifully made but not too useful as a target gun today. I would suggest that USFA offer the following OPTIONS on their Woodsman.

- Drill and tap for a...

Experimental results

Thanks for the responses.

I don't have the moly grease, but for a first attempt I used Marvel Mystery Oil on the striker where it engages the 'letoff piston' (for want of a better word).

I bought a Mk2 Target Model a couple of months ago and it needed a trigger job. I went here to find out what to do. I will look up the thread if I can find it after I write this.

My 2 cents

I bought an OMM .22 back in about 1993 (which I still have). It is in excellent condition but it has a fundamental problem, that I think is built into all Colt revolvers.

When shooting double...

Colt Woodsman 1 vs. Belgian Browning Challenger

Hi M2HB

That's a very nice Challenger. Did you hard chrome it? Is that a suppressor? Very nice gun!

As for the comparison between the two, I agree that it's really not fair to compare these two...

Colt Target Stainless

The Colt Target Stainless .22 (the one made in the 1990's) is very accurate but the trigger is way too heavy. It's abrupt (no creep) but is too hard to pull in bullseye competition where it should be...

Belgian vs. Colt

I have a Belgian Browning Challenger and a 1st model Woodsman (made in 1933).

Not exactly what I meant

I think what I said is being misunderstood.

I realize that there is some pre-travel in the trigger, and it's not the problem.

When the trigger is pulled, there is a segment of smooth resistance...

Ruger Mk2 Target trigger

Per a previous thread a few days ago, I installed the Volquartsen sear into my 'new' Ruger Mk2. It has produced a marvelous change for the better. The trigger now measures 2lbs 5oz (average of 3...

Just bought some

I just bought a Mk2 which turned out to have a cracked grip (around the grip screw).

I ordered the VQ sear from a store in California, which apparently had some in stock. (I'll believe it when I get it).
