Hello John,

Is the pad driving spring what Numrich calls a "retracting rod spring"? If so mine appears to have been kinked at some time.

Should I check the firing pin for overall length or amount protruding from bolt face while pushing the pin forward. If so what are the lengths that I should expect?

The HD pistol came with one magazine. It is shaped exactly like the one in my model 80 except it is blued with a green follower and the one in the 80 is white metal with a metal follower. They both have play but feed OK if I hold the magazine up while firing the HD. Both magazines fit well and work fine in the model 80.

I do not know how to identify a original finger style magazine. The top of the two magazines that I have look very similar to my Ruger Mark II and IV pistols' magazines. They both have a pocket on the left side.

Also how do you adjust the Pick-up spring Screw? I don't know how far to screw it in or what position the crescent cut out should be oriented.
Thanks, Roger Owens

          Good evening John, My magazine looks like the left one in your picture. So I guess I need to find a magazine. Any ideas where I can get a magazine and where would you suggest I look for a driving... more

            Wolff gunsprings.com sells the spring you need for your pistol. Be sure to cut the spring to 40 coils before installing it. Original magazines can be found on eBay from time to time. Expect to pay... more
