乔尔叔叔是如何疯狂使用螺丝刀的…

I was running an errand this morning, listening to C&Rsenal on my earpiece, when Othias ran this bit…


…and I had to ruefully admit that until recently I had never owned a set of gunsmith screwdrivers in my life, despite a lifetime of being a shooter. When you’re primarily into semiauto pistols, it’s not that big a deal.

But a couple of years ago, my darlin’ came into my life…


I’m beginning to have guilty-feeling second thoughts at present, thanks to the current ammo drought, but still in my heart I consider this S&W Model 69 to be (nearly*) the perfect big-bore trail gun. It’s relatively small (and way too light) but capable of firing the heaviest .44 magnum if needed while being easy to carry every day. Needless to say it mostly gets a diet of .44 special which has become a unicorn cartridge lately, so reloads. Lots of reloads.

I love this thing. I’ve already told the story about how I happened to acquire it – I don’t exactly live on a S&W budget – but I was only gradually aware of what an odyssey this revolver must have had before ending up in my adoring mitts. It had been kind of bubba’ed up, and definitely not by the neighbor from whom I acquired it. The front sight is ever so slightly bent, the mainspring had been replaced with something so light it was giving me light strikes, and – relevant to this post – the sideplate screws were all chewed up.


I was besotted with this pistol – but I’m not traditionally a revolver guy and wasn’t yet clued in to what turned out to be a simple fact: Even if all you ever do is properly clean it from time to time you still need a proper set of screwdrivers. Screws are scattered around the gun in an assortment of sizes, and hardware store drivers don’t work. In the course of … well, screwing around … I replaced the damaged screws and then managed to damage the new screws.

这里没人卖合适的螺丝刀,但是…


…事实证明它们很容易买到,而且一点也不贵。如果你想成为一个左轮手枪手,绝对值得拥有。

    73岁时买了我的第一套枪械式螺丝刀。我很惭愧地想,在那次具体收购之前,我买了多少支半正派的枪

    我也是一个汽车迷。但经过适当调整的S&W是纯粹的性。我有一个686-4,纳尔逊·福特做了一个精彩的动作。就在流感大流行提价之前,我几乎从前任主人那里偷了东西。

    The m69 is a fine handgun, especially with Special loads. It has become a standard among our tribe. I often carry mine during MI winters, with a lightweight hammerless backup, a 2” m296. Same speed loaders, though the 69 is much more pleasant to fire.
    Remarkably, the ok 296 is often found used at great prices. Even in warm months the snub carries wonderfully in an upside down shoulder rig (Rusty Sherrick http://www.c-rusty.com made mine) and is very quick and reasonably accurate for a DA only.

To the stake with the heretic!
