Thanks!! I was thinking about the push it off method you mentioned. I am waiting for it to warm up some before I attempt it. Either that or bring it in the house where it is warm enough to do it. I cleaned it up and now I can see what I am working on. It looked like it had never been cleaned since i...

The MSRP started out at $380 +/- and since the SHOT Show it has already jumped to around $420. By the time it hits the dealers it will probably raise even more. I figure you will pay $450-$475 to take one home.

quick question

I am getting ready to replace my trigger with the replacement I picked up. What do you use to get the e-clip off? There isn't much room to grab it. Will I have enough play to change the trigger without removing the sear? I am wondering if there is enough movement in the disconnector assembly to just...

Thanks for the info and excellent pictures. Since I have a couple MKII uppers to choose from the biggest issue would be the spring and plunger hole. I think I will keep this gun as shipped from the factory for now. I have enough projects for the time being. I will have to remember to count to nine w...

adding bolt hold open option on a MKI ?????

I am wondering if the MKI A100 frame can be retrofitted with MKII parts to use the MKII hold open on an empty Magazine feature. I was just eyeballing the one I got with a 12-***** serial number (1974-75). It looks like all the parts would fit and I would have to change the hammer pin,Add the externa...

I got it back together and working. It looks like I missed the hammer strut and had it pinched against the plastic frame by looking at the indents the hammer strut made in the frame. Everything is working fine now. I need to find a MKII complete lower and a bolt for my original barrel now. The origi...

22-45 stuck after reassembly

I know in the past I have read how to remedy this problem but I want to be sure I do it right. I picked up a 6" standard barrel assembly to put on my MKII 22-45. I took off the 22-45 barrel and first assembled with the new MKII 6" assembly without the bolt to check fit of the barrel to the frame. ev...

I called him back after reading your post and after I removed the sear from the gun and verified that we were talking about the same part. Thanks for making me double check!

The schematic at http://www.gun-parts.com/erma/ is actually showing an Erma EP22. I conta...

The main body of the sear is round and the part that catches the firing pin is flat.I have seen two different sear listed @ bobs gun parts http://www.gun-p...
