Re: Remington Scoremaster 511 problem

My mechanical aptitude is sadly lacking. The connection between one part and another is intuitive to some people but I'm not one of them...most of the time.

Re: Remington Scoremaster 511 problem

I got the trigger with sear along with a few odd other parts that I didn't need. I took the receiver guts out and tried replacing the new to me trigger assembly as received.

Re: I read it in a newspaper from a hundred years ago

Here is another one of those....say what??... stories.

Re: For your hands only: James Bond's smart gun becomes a reality
