This is my first purchase from M*CARBO. I’ll be using this kit to perform a ‘trigger job’ on my new GP100, 3" .44 SPL. While I’ve never done the trigger on a Ruger before, I have built several 1911A1 pistols and I’ve done a few trigger jobs on S&W revolvers. With the help of Mr. Nelson’s video, it shouldn’t be too difficult. I have ‘launched’ a couple of springs in my time, so I may do some disassembly in a plastic bag. LOL! Thankfully, I always found the springs. Sometimes days later. Smiles.
The MCARBO spring and shim kit came well packaged via 1st Class USPS. MCARBO even packages the shims in two ‘color-coded’ containers. A nice touch. I also like the fact the kit is complete.
Everything you need is included. I hate to think I’ve got all the pieces and parts, only to discover one critical item has to be ordered separately. That’s frustrating.
I also had the opportunity to converse with Mr. Chris Nelson via email and find him to be a genuinely nice guy. Certainly enthusiastic about M*CARBO products. Also, it’s my policy, when I can, to support our returning Vets and give them priority in my purchasing decisions. Being Vet myself, I believe in ‘the Brotherhood’.
For the record, I stopped buying Ruger firearms 45 years ago for personal reasons… But, those reasons are no longer valid. RIP Bill Sr., Bill Jr. and James.
The GP100 3" .44 SPL is a beast! Being an Engineer I tend to look at the overall design of a firearm, keying on it’s strengths and weaknesses. As far as Ruger Center Fire pistols and particularly their revolvers, IMHO, they are built like tanks. I recognized long ago the removable ‘side-plate’ design was not as strong as Ruger’s. I’d actually planned to send my Ruger 3" Speed-Six in to be converted by Devel/ASP into a non-fluted cylinder .44 SPL. At the time, it would have made a perfect ‘Big Bore Belly Gun’. While the GP100 is marginally bigger and it’s price tag fairly steep, it’s much cheaper than a Devel custom.
If, you’ve stayed to this point listening to my rambles, thank you.
