Using a set screw to hold the safety spring and detent in.

Ding. It took 18 days for someone else to figure out the logical cross application.

Actually, I figured it out a few months ago (or whenever the last memo was) when the "gripless fever" started. I just don't have any extra springs, so I didn't want to shorten the one I had in case I screwed up.

It seemed logical, and a lot cheaper than having a custom made bracket. I should have made a kit with a tap, detent, instructions, and shortened spring and sold it for $50. :D

Hey Ted, are you having a senior moment, or have you been replaced by an alien? :D This idea was proposed by none other than you in December 2005, post #19:

And I quote:


Partially thread the selector detent spring hole and use a set screw to retain the spring? You'd need to cut the spring down a bit.

Oh, this method does work nicely. :D

Even the DOJ would have trouble calling a set screw a grip, no matter how hard they tried, although you would still have the capacity to accept a grip:rolleyes: (I'm just kidding) Maybe I can run a p grip if I permanantly attach it(again, just kidding, don't do this, it's a felony with an open magwell, I shouln't have to say this, but people still don't know...):rolleyes:
