Krieghoff at Ottsville does that procedure on the trunnion recesses of the K-32 and the K--80. I have seen the setup. I have no idea why they don't just use oversize trunnions, but I guess they want to return the gun to its original dimensions.

Steve & Frank, thanks for sharing. Interesting method. I have a question, what advantage does your method have over a method such as precision laser welding the hook? It seems to me that as much tig welding that is going on in your method you are running the risk of excessive heat transfer from that lump to the braze or solder, possibly causing something to come loose. You're right, theres more than one way to skin a cat, both of your methods seem to be overkill. Does it take you the same amount of time doing this method compared to how you used to do it? Are the results that much better? Thanks.

SKB,
When answering LeFusil, could you also address the advantage of this method over replacing the hingepin?

If I may,
It decreases the amount of file time.
It accommodates less than parallel file strokes.
Welding up the hook can be outsourced.

No reason to make reamers or engrave a replacement pin.

Time is after all, money.
Rejointing costs 2x as much here as in Britain, where it's done all the time.

Replacing a pin is not even in my vocabulary. With a Parker it is impossible, there is no "pin". With guns with flush mounted pins, it is a nightmare. Working on the hook is the only way.

Gents,
I find this to be the most seemless, evidence free method of repair that I have used to date. I get excellent contact and the mill cuts straighter than I can file. It does not get near hot enough to compromise a silver solder joint. This method takes more time to layout and set up and less file time. Overall it is more costly, it does take a bit longer and I have increased costs for the welding and shipping, but I feel the final product is worth it.

this method vs replacing the pin is dependent upon the gun. I will usually build a new pin given that option. Just my opinion, but I feel if it is a good gun and it was designed to have a replaceable pin, that is the way to go. Others will disagree.

Parkers.....I'm getting to that. Soon I will be making new knuckles just the way the Brothers P went about tighten up one of their guns.

Steve

Well, Steve, if you can build a good replacement Parker knuckle you'll find yourself with too much business to do any other gunsmithing.

Like everything else, it is hard to get the time to work out the process. We are building a new cocking hooking for a 2 barrel set DHE now. The clients needs forced me to take on the job. The engineering aspect of it usually takes as long or longer than the actual building of the part. Were some one to need a new knuckle....I'll build it.

You need a lazer wielder like we use in jewelry to keep from heating up the barrel.I have asked around and ours are not big enough to wield that big a spot.
