    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.

    Nice, congrats! I would love to try one sometime, but have not yet tried my hand fitting triggers.

    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.
