Dan I live in a very isolated area several hours from any major towns, I have been following your progress with great interest sure wish I had your skills but if I can't do it with a chain saw then it does'nt get done
I have the 22 magnum barrel of course I guess I could remove the ejector and just get it copied but the rim on the 5mm is a little thicker and wider


Appreciate your kind offer

My 157 22 WMR in the squirrel woods... Shoots good enough with CCI WRF ammo to make head shots out to 100 yards as long as I do my part... And yes,the firing pin is offset...

Glad you had a good day mate mine was the exact opposite. I mounted a new scope and had some time this morning to sight it in, no luck would not fire any ammo at all.

When I first got the rifle I shot S&B ok but Remington was hit and miss now it wont fire any ammo at all.

I broke the action held the trigger back and pushed the hammer forward making the firing pin protrude seems to out plenty far enough,

tried pulling the trigger hard and all the way back still nothing, any tips?

Remove the hammer spur extension if it has one.

Scope is clear of hammer, I will the hammer extension and try that. Do these cause a problem by adding weight to the hammer? I saw a heavier spring advertised but can't find after an hour searching

The early M157 had a rebounding hammer which used a double coil hammer spring, later models with transfer bar had a single coil spring, Wolff makes the extra power springs(FAQs). With a weak hammer spring adding a hammer spur extension can cause light pin strikes.

Download Perklo's trigger instructions in the FAQs.
