Interesting

Maybe its friction on the aluminum to steel?

For some reason I think I remember my 642 did that too

It has largely subsided after use.

It rarely sparks now

But at first it was spark city

Looks like Smith and Lipsey's are trying to fix some of the J frame issues. According to the video they are using titanium trigger and hammer pins. I've been happy with my LCR but this looks pretty slick.

This lineup has the potential to be the best J-frames ever made.

Still notta on the 586

I don't strip them much. This one has the worst trigger pull of all my smiths. My new 642 is better lol.

I've started polishing some things here and there. The biggest resistance I sometimes feel is right at the cusp of the cylinder stop reseting.

Went in there to see if there's anything I can polish and ope.

The damage matches a little step in the trigger that looks intentional. But the cylinder stop surely isn't suppose to look like that.

People aren't upgrading their revolvers b/c it's the most functional firearm they own.

It just arrived at home

Called the wife real quick to get some pics and see what the repair card says

She informed me that the driver woke up both kids and it sure sounded like she placed the blame on me

So yeah it might be broken again already

My K frame parts for the 66 should be here monday

In theory all my Smith revolvers should be back to working order by then

Oh shit from the pic the wife sent I made out like a bandit

It looks brand new

Says they refinished the entire gun

Replaced trigger stud

Replaced hammer stud

Once I get it in my hands Ill see if they perhaps did more than that

Looks like they listed most of what they fixed.

New grip screw for sure.

They reused most the rest of the parts. They did polish out a small drop on the barrel which was kind. Was hoping the barrel might qualify for replacement with as beat as the forcing cone be.

They however did not fix the breachface insert. I guess at the end of the day it doesn't hurt the function though

Here she be

Feels pretty good. It's smooth.

Much better than when that pin was broken lol

629 still got the best feeling trigger out of the lot of em

Feel like it stacks up a little faster or something and just feels different on the 7 shot

I've got the trigger and cylinder stop in

Had to lightly stone the stop to get a high spot out

Trigger fit pretty tight. Cylinder is a little tighter

However it seems to be just at the cusp of out of time now. It does lock up before the hammer strikes it seems. But the clyinder stop doesn't come up until the last second

Maybe I just need to let the tight trigger wear in a bit before worrying too much

Threw the old trigger in and all is well now

Something must have just been a tiny little bit different

The old trigger just had a little odd wear from contacting the old cylinder stop. Gave it pass or two on a stone and called it good enough

If you find that shoot it my way though. I'd like to know. That 586 is sometimes light on locking up right at the end

Fired both the 66 I threw parts at and the 586 Smith fixed up today

Both worked fine

Maybe it was me but I did not shoot the 586 with the ACRO very well today. Seemed to pattern vs group. But it would keep them in the black on a B8 at 15 yards

Shot the 66 pretty good with irons
