GLB Schneider and Glassicks
« on: July 10, 2020, 01:43:36 PM »
In 2010 I purchased a consecutive serial numbered pair of nickel plated Schneider & Glassics made by GLB  [Luciano Giacosa - Brescia] and imported by FIE.  The frames are nickel plated brass and the date of manufacture is 1970.   

When I received them I noted that both had been fired at some point and needed cleaning.  Upon teardown I found that one of the pistols had a loose wedge that had been put in from the wrong side, broken sear/trigger, and both of them had loose arbors, to the point that they could unscrewed from the frame by hand.  I cleaned them up and put them in their original boxes, and put them on the shelf until I could find a parts gun for the wedge and trigger.  :o

It's been 10 years with no luck in finding a nickel plated wedge and trigger; so, I guess I'm gonna have to find someone with the expertise to fix them. :(   

Here are a couple old pictures:   :o

Wow! Those gotta be as rare as an honest politician.

No old beat up FIE guns on GB? That would be a good source for the parts.

I check GB every now and then. Nickel plated parts are nonexistent.  Ive gotten other triggers that just arent the same.

Would it be possible to have the wedge and trigger nickel-plated?

Those revolvers sure are SHINY!  :)

Regards,

Jim

Thx Cpn. Finding awedge and trigger that fits is the problem. The nickel part is easy.,
