My thoughts exactly about quality control. It is just a spongy feeling....resistance....then break. I have no other Jewell to compare to but the tech I talked to said it was normal to have 20-40 thousandths of "take-up" prior to breaking.
I changed the springs and got it to feeling GREAT with the 2-3oz spring....not exactly a hunting weight!!!!
Put in spring B and it feels OKAY...ho hum....but I left it in there because the 1lb-3lb was TERRIBLE.
Will see how it feels for a day at the range. If not impressed, back on with the Shilen. If the Safety is not on and turned off, it feels GREAT at 1.5lb.
Hate it when you think you are upgrading and things [censored] in your face!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
