It would stay under the pillow at night but the sight keeps hitting my wife in the head.
Sorry PK if it makes more work for you but I had to share!

Mine is in CO now and should be home hopefully within the next twelve months. I was curious how the gun racks with the cut down actuator? Is it smooth and easy or is it hard to pull back?

I think motorcar will agree:
The tension is the same but it's easier on the hand, doing away with the bloody
Some day we will all have custom springs and buffer from one of the forum's members.
Then it will be just right.

Zamm is right on several things; yes it is the best and I spend quality time with it every day I'm home; Gone cheesegrater...welcome ACTUATOR and it doesn't bother me a bit to pull it back..it looks soooo cool! It is not any more difficult to rack, I'll never know why the Westy's and Kahr's came with that big nasty thing. You will be amazed at the difference in outward appearance when you get it back. ...Someday springs.......

That if so fine! Did you do the wood or is that Dan Block furniture? Sure looks good! Thanks for posting the photo so all can see, now my thread isn't useless.

Thanks, no problem ( I show it off at the drop of a hat:) )
Actually, the forgrip and handgrip came with it and are surplus used by Numrich/AutoOrd on the early semi's ( this one is a 75).
The no-crossbolt buttstock was picked up on ebay for a song and then I refinnished all three acording to Chris' Thompson FAQ, finnishing with Brownells Formula XIII - (light brown with red overtone) and Linseed oil rub.
Looks great in person.
