Finally broke my 597



Log in to see fewer ads
I was at the range popping off rounds at 200yds and suddenly the hammer would not reset.
Pulled the trigger group looked around, nope nothing missing but if I get the hammer to stay back it very hard to pull the trigger.
In the bag it goes to be looked at later.
Gave it a good clean and decided to push out the hammer pin to see what was going on underneath.
Hammer pin is now in two parts, well that would do it!.
Found that a 1/8 drill bit shank and a couple minutes with a Dremil and its fixed.
I guess after a dozen years of hard use, something is bound to break, just glad it was an easy fix.

Just started shooting 200yds this year, AR400x3/16" plates 16", 10", 8".
I shoot prone with sling and TechSights, just got a new shorter front post that I filed down the a bit more to get on at 200yds.
Was about 14" high and totally covered the target before, very challenging but cool to hear that long delay.
Now Im about on at 200yds for the 8" prone, 8"-10" sitting, 16" rapid or standing, still hard though but too much fun to hear the ring.
Using my Appleseed skills on 4moa.
