S&W Model 929 Rebuild:
Dear TK Custom,
Just a quick note to say thanks for the new prototype hammer sear you provided to replace my older style factory type hammer sear.
The new design sear dropped in place with very minimal fitting; slight stoning with an 800 grit hard Arkansas stone to blend the edges, and everything was ready!
Including your new sear, I have totally rebuilt the factory MIM action on my S&W Model 929 competition 9 mm revolver. The rebuild included your new TK smooth rounded trigger, a spur-less TK Speed Hammer, a TK Custom Cylinder release, an extended length firing pin, an increased strength Wolfe Power-Rib mainspring and a reduced strength 13 pound Wolfe rebound slide spring.
The New 929 Revolver now puts the original S&W Performance Center Revolver to shame! The smoothness of a properly fitted action constructed of REAL tool steel parts leaves no room for comparison with the 929 in its original configuration.
I have compared ALL of my revolver actions to that of a Bill Davis Custom S&W K-Frame NRA PPC Revolver I used exclusively in competition during the 70s and early 80s. I never thought I would be able to match the perfect feel of the Bill Davis K-Frame with a modern S&W N-Frame; your pursuit of perfection in the parts you provided through TK Custom proved me wrong! The new 929 is now PERFECT and is simply awaiting warm weather and a Shooter Ready? Now in command to start the 2018 Steel Challenge season!
Thanks Guys, you restored my faith in hand-finished precision Steel revolver actions!
