after reading a post about installing a p-rod/1701p grip frame on a 13XX
i had to have one!
after a few weeks of waiting for the gripframe,it came in!
in the post it was mentioned a modded hammer was needed for smooth operation and it gave instuction on how to modify the hammer.
another option is to order a custom 1377 hammer from mellonair.someone else did exactly that.following suit i contacted mellonair and ordered a custom hammer
getting anxious,i went ahead and modded my stock hammer accordingly
okay, ran into a problem. now what i thought
took the side plate off.holding everything down with my 3 arms cocking the gun,i saw what the issue was in my gun.
the sear was bumping up against the tube preventing the sear from locking the hammer back
now i have 2 choices
cut a reccess into the tube or modify the sear
i know tubes are real cheap and dont know what a new sear would cost or how long it would take to get,if something went wrong.chose option 1 recess the sear slot in the tube
now,i have positive engagement
is all i can say about this p-rod/1701p gripframe
i am still in the learning process of the 2-stage trigger idea.haven't settled on an ideal adjustment for my shooting.the way i have it set up right now is no creep and very short trigger pull.did the bump/thump/drop test it is safe!!
i can adjust how light i want the trigger pull to be which feels great compared to the stock gripframe and trigger.the p-rod-1701p trigger is wider
i also added a disco hammer spring to the mix as i plan to pump 15x.with the stock 1377 spring it couldn't dump all the air after 14 pumps.tried 20 pumps,all air dumped and gun is a lot louder now
added a stock and scope today.will run it across the crony also
will post better pics and range report then.
crosman needs to add this gripframe to all their pistols.it is worth the price increase
