Re: Pro hunter FX

Unless there is excessive play (side to side when the frame is open), its going to shoot fine and you won't have a problem with it. Its when there's side to side movement that is noticeable, that one may want to spend the time to have it corrected. Shooters are buying them up so fast, that stores can't keep them in stock. Many are reporting exceptional groups and they're putting the hammer on the deer. If it were necessary, yes they can be replaced.

Re: Pro hunter FX

I made it to the range again today, finally. I ended up at 77g by weight of Blackhorn, 250g TMZ, harvester sabot for boat tails and CCI 209M. Pretty much a standard load around here, last group of the day would be about 3/4". I'm in no hurry to do any trigger work now, I don't find it an issue. If you were a flincher it might be a good idea.

Good shoot'n! I'd leave it alone too. Good luck!

Re: Pro hunter FX

I checked with an expert on that hinge pin and the possibility of reaming out both the frame and barrel, so that alternative hinge pins are acceptable.

Doing so, would create more machine work. Here's his response to those who have a loose hinge pin on an FX or, may consider changing it out....

Well, nice try....only one problem. You would have to also machine the inside of the frame to allow the wider barrel lug to fit into the action. They, TC, went to a lot of work to make sure this would not be done.

There is no reason for a loose pin. He should send it back, and demand they fix it...period
