Scanned out of the regional distribution center on the 8th. I wager it's still sitting in a trailer outside in Jackson. We're all iced up down here so I'm not expecting anything to be delivered before Saturday.

Cheers
Bill

Obvious signs the envelope was jammed in the sorting machinery a few times along the way requiring manual intervention. Spring was poking out through a tear in the middle.

Best to ship this kind of lumpy stuff in a box or thick padded envelope.

In any event, it finally made it's way here ...Thanks for steeping up. I have most everything needed to build the test fixture. A few bits yet on order from McMaster and need to get the pin-out for wiring the load cell to a D-sub9 connector.

Cheers
Bill

Interesting - and annoying - aspect of using the ISMI 22lb spring in the King's bushing, rod and reverse plug setup Officers.

The King's 2.927" OA length rod won't tip and find the plug hole, and the King's rod doesn't have a "wire" takedown hole drilled in it. So, I have to push the reverse plug back far enough to grasp it, and hold it retracted enough for the front of the plug to clear the rear of the spring tunnel, and then lever up the rear of the rod. All while holding the plug back on the rod and the 22lb spring compressed.

Reverse order to install.

I called Clark's and they said their kit won't fit on Officers Models modified to use the defunct King's kit (different length plug, and apparently the alignment notch on the plug, which the King's plug doesn't have/use). I'm waiting to hear if they're willing to grind a rod to 2.93" OA length and drill it for the takedown wire (paperclip).

Otherwise, I may have to send the rod to BMCM and have him drill a hole in it. My fixture on the drill press doesn't hold something that small, and I don't want to risk buggering it up.

Sigh. At least I got the neat new Brownells plunger tube staking fixture, to tighten the staking on one end of the old gun's tube. I wish they'd had that inexpensive tool many years ago. I disliked the old ways of staking the tubes.
