    Range time tomorrow will be the deciding factor as to if it stays or not.
    Thanks to Quack for answering the Q's about over travel adjustment.

    It really was not that bad,....took about an hour. Shoe has to be sanded a bit.
    Adjusting the over travel took the longest.

    I may have to try it one day. I'm a bit nervous about triggers, overtravel especially, as some time ago I had a new trigger fit and installed by a well known pistolsmith out of state, and the first time I fired it when I got it back, it chain fired half a mag worth of ammo.

    Quuack helped me out with it, I had a few Q's that I could not find in the Kuhnhausen manual.
    Pm me & I can explain........very easy! Hardest part is detail stripping the frame 10 or 12 times. :faint:

    Not that hard to instal. I installed one in lawdog's NN in my car.

    Quack or I could write up a tutorial and post it with some pictures to help. Actually, I have one that I need to instal in one of my project. I can write that instal up.

    I still have a 10-8 from my Mil-Spec, I can show the differences vs the Wilson.
