Thank You Gentleman. Paul no, the rifle is being fitted with some new pieces. The firing pin finally let go on Sweet Pea, forgetting there was another turbo and was troubled before the match weekend, Fred came to the rescue and suggested swapping out pins or just using the other bolt. The other bolt worked just fine, Thanks Fred.

How does a FP let go? I've had springs go weak, but never let go. Was that on a Turbo?

06-22-2009, 05:29 PM
Fred, i bet it was a turbo , they are famous for springs going weak pretty fast, My 40-x let go 2 years ago at the nationals on practice day, it broke the tip off of it ... when it let go it let go........

I guess my day is coming. 1968 to present, maybe that's a record.

It's a 2 year old Turbo, I have had issues with the tip and it finally reached that point. Another thing it worked loose and there was just to much side to side and in and out movement of the FP IMO. With the amount of rounds that have been though it, it was just a matter of time.

For those of us who are a long way from Turbo central and might be thinking about buying a Turbo, what is the exact problem with the firing pin and how easy is it to fix or does it need to go back to Flash? If you donít what to post it on the forum peter@oz-rba.com

I'm aware of the Turbo's that have had that problem. It's one that Flash has addressed on later FP's. I think he Silver Solders them in now.

Congrats on another great target Joe! I have a feeling you will shoot more 2500's in the future. Keep up the effort!

Thanks Guys, I really do appreciate it, but I wasn't going to say anything about it, until it was verified. That was the reason I did not post the scores. There has been a lot of friction at times on the forum, and did not want to create anymore of it.

Congrats on your good shooting.I notice your profile says you live in California.Are there any matches in the northern california area or just down south? All I see up this way in 22lr is position shooting.

Lynn, there are some ARA matches in Portola, Ca. Look on the home page, click on the ARA or IR 50/50 logo and you can see if there are any matches in your area.

Lynn Thanks, There is a range East of you called El Dorado Rod and Gun Club. They shoot ARA, John Cory is the Match Director, there is a goggle search on the ARA home page, left hand side column.

Joe and Lynn John is no longer holding matches at El Dorado. I am hoping he will start them up again next year. Modesto is shooting RBA and Sunnyvale has ARA, and I believe Eureka has IR 50/50. BTW excellent shooting Joe. Is that 6 now?
