I can smooth the trigger and drop the pull by about 1 1/2 lbs with a polish job. Be just under 5lbs when I'm done.

My mouth freakin hurts! I have had a toothache for a week and a half and finally had a root canal done today. The toothache was no big deal compared to the aftermath of the surgery. They had to cut the margins down on the gum around the tooth so a crown will fit. Dang that hurts worse than the root canal does!

Never had a tooth issue I couldn't handle with pliers. Hope you feel better.

My son was just at the Baseball Hall of Fame a few weeks ago. They were inducting that weekend. He saw Yogi Berra at one of the booths. My son took a picture of him and sent it to me. I LOVE Yogi. I have a book of many of his quotes. They are all so funny. I must say, he is looking quite frail nowadays.

If he was an idiot, he is the most qouted idiot in the history of the world. That makes him pretty smart in my book.

one of my favorites - "It's déjà vu all over again" ... Brilliant!!! LOL
One of my favorites from the book I have of his quotes......

Someone came up to him and asked him what time it was.
His reply, "Right now?"

I think this is the 6th root canal I have had done. Too many to remember an accurate count in any case. I even had one done with no novacaine (no joke) and it didn't hurt that much. I have several crowns and none of those were too much of a big deal. But when they cut away the margins today it freaking hurts! I think the worst part was when she was scraping away at the tooth and it drives the sound up into my skull. There are stitches in my gums too.

And Mountainman, I still have all of my original teeth still in my mouth except for two wisdom teeth.

They can get you whatever you want as long as a PSA lower and mil-spec parts are ok. Give them a ring. Prices are reasonable.
