- I let my Gun Store Guy shoot the PMR-30 this weekend. While I hope to get a thorough report on it from him later, I can tell you that he was making impressive shots with it at 25 yards, and that everyone who shot it commented on its smooth trigger and lack of any substantial recoil. This is in line with my earlier "pew pew pew" review.
- Karma is alive and well, or at least it was this weekend. One of the aforementioned fellows who shot my PMR is a Glock armorer, and talk (somehow) turned to that of him doing trigger jobs and other work. I asked him for his card; he said he didn't have one, but if we moseyed on over to his truck, he'd take my pistol apart and tune it for me. We did, and -- if you'll pardon my lack of technical terminology here -- he polished up all the surfaces that rub against each other so that they won't rub against each other any more, and sanded down some pieces that had burrs and other not-smooth features. I don't know if this is technically a "trigger job" because he didn't replace any springs or connectors, but my trigger is now a hell of a lot smoother to pull.
- Oh, I also left that shooting range with more ammo than I brought (which was zero). Gun Store Guy bought 3 boxes of 22 Magnum, and we only shot two of them. Free ammo AND free gun maintenance!
- Out of 100 rounds shot, not a single keyhole was observed. This was using the same brand of 40gr FMJ that I shot earlier. Don't know how to account for that, unless the "barrel just needed breaking in."
- Speaking of the PMR-30, I still haven't gotten Mom to shoot the damn thing. This has become a source of annoyance for me. Maybe this weekend it will finally happen.
- The review of the Timney Trigger has to wait until I finish carving out pieces of plastic with a Dremel Tool to accomodate the trigger, and then re-bed the stock because I will probably take off too much. While the trigger itself looks like a fine piece of engineering, any product with instructions that require you to use a power tool is not what I would consider "drop-in".
- Of course, in retrospect maybe I just assumed that ALL Timney Triggers were drop-in, because some of their products are labeled that way. Some Googling indicates that their Mosin-Nagant trigger is NOT advertised as drop-in, so perhaps I'm just a dumbass.
Okay, maybe I did have enough for a proper post after all...
