Indeed. But being European, CZ has lots of metric calipers and uses metric dimensions. They do it to screw up North Americans, even those of us in "officially" metric countries who still think in inches and miles.

Funny...
I thought at almost 60 that I lived in the stone age, & do in a number of ways, but my Crapsman digital calipers do both inches and metric, at the push of a button. FWIW they were inherited...

Mine is a dial caliper with no battery to die or electronics to screw up. At 72 I'm to old to change now.

I'm 68 and have both. Have mechanical and digital trigger gauges as well. Sometimes it is just good to have verification.

Now that you've mentioned that...


The digital calipers I ended up with in late 2014, early 2015, sat unused until a few months ago when I wanted to measure the wire diameter of a sear spring "substitute" for one of my 2 Ruger MK-IV's (which by itself dropped the trigger pull from about 4.5 lbs to 2.5 lbs). The only thing was, it didn't work, or more precisely, the battery was dead. Lucky for me (or because I'm older and wiser?) I have an egg tray/container full of assorted batteries in the fridge and had (at least one) spare battery that fit it, and it wasn't difficult to change.


I too only have a "mechanical" trigger gauge (Wheeler #309888), also inherited from the same relative/source.



What's hilarious, we're "almost arguing" about who's "more old school", or what tools we use that are. But this is far better than some of the things that happen around here in other disagreements. Unlike some of those other situations, I find this version entertaining and fun.



Before the digital calipers came along, this is what I used for many decades (and still do for some things):

You have me beat with that one. I think the only time I used one of those I was still in school. Most people wouldn't know how to read it.

I will admit I do have a digital trigger gauge. The mechanical trigger gauge I have would not read high enough for some triggers so I bought a Lyman digital.

That's a scary thought (too high to measure) isn't it?

I ran into that with some of my DA S&W revolvers (29, 629, 686, & new 617). Actually, after changing springs, the 617 got down to a 7lb DA pull (2.75lbs SA with no polishing or stone work), so that one did measure on the manual gauge. I need to do the same thing and get a digital, for the same reason, or just forget about and not worry about the high DA pulls? After all, I don't use revolvers for self defense purposes any more...
