delivered as promised by FedEx .... per the enclosed note, the problem was a broken hammer spring .... it was well protected by packaging .... after this issue, I've decided to use Carlson's snap caps .... I figure that can't hurt .... observation : as mentioned in post #34, when we first purchased it, the trigger pull was rather heavy .... over time it smoothed out but in looking back, I now believe the OEM hammer spring wasn't right from the get-go .... as repaired, there is a significant improvement in the trigger pull and I'm looking forward to firing it ....

Hmmm, broken tension spring on a brand new and never been fired BOND?? It's definitely a quality issue for that part whichever country it was sourced. Anyhow, glad you got it back and hoping it'll the last time you have to send it back.

it had been a display model in the shop where I bought it .... don't know for how long or how many times it was dry fired, which is not supposed to hurt it ..... the more I handle it, the more convinced I am that the OEM "Hammer Torsion Spring" was faulty to begin with .... my wife couldn't cock it using both thumbs nor could she pull the trigger .... now she can cock it with a single thumb and has no trouble pulling the trigger .... its trigger and cocking functions are both much smoother and do not require anywhere near as much effort .... I have a call into Bond to speak with the fellow who did the repair .... he's not there now, they are supposed to have him call me ....

You should be ok with it now. I'm sure it was tested and re-tested after they fixed that problem. If anything, I'm more worried about you dropping it as you fire it the first time! :becky: I said that because it has a much smaller grip and firing a what....44mag? So be safe with it.

we have two different sets of barrels .... the first is 38/357 .... the second is 44 Special .... my plan is to fire light 38 and 44 loads.... with the way things are today, I wanted to have one caliber that uses small primers and one with large primers

my plan was to cut down a hundred 44 Mag cases to 44 Spec length and light load them for use in our Roughneck .... doing so with the equipment we have requires considerable time ....in these times I felt lucky in coming across a source for semi-favorably priced once fired 44 Spec cases and have 100 on the way .... once they get here I hope to get them loaded and ready to fire

A good friend of mine owns a Mag 44 semi-auto and cuts off 30.06 casings to mag 44 size and reloads them.
