    Well, here I am crying my eyeballs out.  Any hints, tips or tricks on reinstalling the hammer block would be greatly appreciated.  I'll tell you, I am "this" close to ordering a new grip from mama kt with the block already installed...

    Tx - if you were here I would give you a kiss! Well, probably not but you get the idea. The directions didn't work exactly like they were laid out (at least for me) but the idea of putting the gun on its side is what I needed. MAJOR SIGH OF RELIEF. Now to try and fix the other 3 things that have drastically gone wrong today.

    Frame is nothing - but don't TOUCH the hammer block pin! Leave it in the grip. If you replace a grip, make sure you request it pre-installed. AMHIK.

    I feel your pain. When I did my initial F&B I took out the hammer block not knowing any better. It took me hours to get it back in. I'll never do that again.

    Sorry, though, I can't remember what I finally did to get it back in there...

    Can't exactly answer that. Yet. Hope to be able to in the future. But I think in the long run I would probably have done/will do it again.

    No one has ever accused me of being right! ;) (Not polically speaking... that is another story entirely!)

    Any way.. has any one ever heard of one of these lil guns going auto?

    I have seen the Glocks going full Auto.... Not something I want in my hands.


    But could you imagine a 20 -30 round stick hanging out of the bottom of one of these lil 3AT's?....


    Mitch.... Who has never violated ANY ATF rules .....Seriously.
