Felt like this should be posted over here, so if you're wanting to switch to a Ruger-type coil hand spring for your bp or SAA Colt, you can get this jig and precisely locate the hole needed to put this plunger and spring in to drive the hand forward!

            You can save yourself the $70 + postage by simply doing like this guy did here (pretty slick in my view)!

           Just thought folks might want to know. Kinda goes with this thread over on a different forum, but that's just imho (and most everybody knows I'm an a**hole, so fwiw, there ya go)!

Okay guys, held on to this information for way to long. There's a Gripmaker over in Carthage Mo, and (while he'll make you a set of faux ivory or stag grips for your shooter), where he really shines in on what he calls his sculpted designs! Simply outstanding.
                                                            Posted this over at '58 Remmy, figured folks here'd want to know!

Ain't lookin' ta start any quarrels, just need honest opinion to decide's all.
