1911 Tool

By the by... I would live to see y'all produce a firing pin tool sized for the 1911 too... I think you could also sell tons of them designed for use with the Glock as well...

2 More Major BHSpringSolutions ANNOUNCEMENTS

Hello Friends,
We hope your 2016 is off to a great start. My partner, Slav, and I have 2 major BHSS Announcments to share with you.

First - Slav will soon be making final changes to a new BHSS Specialty Tool - a Firing Pin Retaining Plate Removal/Installation Tool for the 1911. Following the concept of our Hi Power Firing Pin Retaining Plate Tool. In case you haven't seen it, watch Slav replace a Hi Power Firing Pin Spring in under 30 seconds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WUb1SfZQ98
and watch a Hi Power Main Spring replacement take place in 40 seconds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhYXjMnXqQ0 (See message #92 of this thread for more information about those tools.

We now have Main Spring Tools in inventory ready for immediate shipment. Our first production run of the Hi Power Firing Pin Retaining Plate Tools is now finished and we expect to ship to the forum members who reserved one of these tools with delivery to you be approximately end of January.

Second major announcement: We are now making final adjustments to a new Hi Power Tool, that we affectionately have named "The Third Hand Tool".
For those of you experienced with disassembly and assembly of the Hi Power, you know that there is a step in disassembly and assembly when the hammer must be held in it's cocked position. Until now, the best solution has been to have a friend with a strong thumb hanging around. In their "Field Service Manual", Browning suggests making a "special tool" using a nail....bending it to a certain shape/dimension, and sliding the bent nail over the hammer and under the Hi Power's short "beavertail". The problem with this technique....(obvious).....gun finishes and nails are not a match made in heaven.

So, in the near future, BHSpringSolutions will introduce the first ever "Third Hand Hi Power Tool" Solution - a tool with two rubber coated "legs" that retain the Hi Power hammer in it's rearward position, without harming your gun's finish....and without "the look" that your wife gives you when you ask her to hold back the hammer on your Hi Power while you position the sear and the sear lever pin! (By the way guys, her thumb really isn't strong enough to hold back the hammer against the force of the Hi Power's rather beefy main spring....)

Thank you to the forum members who helped BHSpringSolutions take flight in 2015 - we have more major announcements coming soon.

Take care,
Mark and Slav

"The Third Hand Tool"? I think this is where I say, "Put me down for one out of the first batch."

For the firing pin retaining plate, was that a pre-MkIII in the video? Any trick for dealing with the firing pin safety while changing the spring? That is where I really need a third hand!

For the third hand tool I normally use a zip tie to hold the hammer back. But I will be interested to see what you come up.

No, it's an Arcus slide, also without firing pin safety.

No tricks needed - the left hand thumb does the job just perfect. It's easier when you don't need to think about taking the firing pin out of your eyeball

Will the third hand tool work with both the spur and commander type hammers? I have a one of each. The commander hammer is a C&S

Gents,
Thank you for your patience. The first batch of the RPTs is ready. Tomorrow they'll start their journey to you. It will be one hell of a journey. I think we will be on time and they will be delivered till the end of the month. Everyone who has ordered one till the moment will get it with the current batch.
From this moment on, the RPTs are on back-order with expected date of delivery end of February - first week of March.

If the "third hand tool" works for both rowel and spur hammers, then one BELONGS in my Browning HP tool area. I await your availability of said tool.

I received my spring order this afternoon. Just finished installing all the appropriate springs except the mainspring. Very impressed so far. The two coil trigger spring does make a significant difference from the original, especially in a 25 year old Israeli pistol. Range trip is next. Thanks for the prompt shipping and some great springs.

Mike

It should. Don't want to make any statements before trying this though. The prototype is not finished yet (but soon), when we finish the testing, we'll let you know.

If our calculations are correct, we should have the working prototype of 1911 RPT till the end of February and the first batch of those will be produced at estimate the same time as our 1911 spring kits for both s70 and s80.

Looking forward to trying my new FP retainer plate tool when it comes. The mainspring tool has been great.

My FP tools arrived today - awesome job guys. Makes something that used to be a pain to a simple and easy job. Note tested on both 9mm and .40 Slides and also one with a slightly modified FP stop and all worked fine.

Just a note for those who are first using them in Replace mode. It will allow the FP and Spring to launch if you let it slip while getting the retainer plate set up in the grooves ! Point in a safe direction until you are uset to it <grin>
