I was able to fire the gun after I took the trigger guard off. Using a small allen wrench. That part is done.
Does anybody make a brass or aluminum trigger blade for this trigger assembly. I don't want another pot metal blade on there, and I don't have a machine shop handy since I retired.
Still looking for help.

In addition to what rob mentioned, RPMs also need to be kept in mind. The drill's rotation speed needs to be adjusted to the proper range for any chance of success.

Your data is as valid as the next person's. Please post it if you have it handy.
I'm just going by what I've observed. Ive only had 2 springers in my life time and only ever chronoed the one I have now.

It can be done, but you will have to make a lot of compromises.... It will wear out spindle bearings. If you have a tapered chuck, it WILL come loose eventually, due to side loading.
Be willing to accept less than perfect and hope for acceptable results.
Just this weekend I opened up a QB repeater magazine slot that was sized for .177/.22 Mrod mags to accept .25/.30 Mrod mags.....with a drill press, and likely running the bit way too fast.
After experimenting with the QB breech I went after my intended target----a 1720 magazine conversion.
As a rule, you probably shouldn't mill with a drill press.
But that doesn't mean you "can't."
Ted I get it, I like shooting my PB's but I don't own enough land to do it, and the only range local is state run with many rules.Last time I went to the range it was terrible.
They tell everyone when shooting can begin, tell you when it's time to replace targets , tell you that you can't go near the bench in that time without telling you that you should have already had your targets with you.
When your targets are shot up you've gotta wait till the hold fire to replace them.
In my backyard I can do whatever I want.
When buddies or family are over we just set some stuff up in front of my backstop and open fire, use common sense and don't muzzle sweep anyone and you're good to go.
No crazy rules, no long trip, no ear protection to worry about, just casual fun.
I can sit in my recliner and shoot out the back door while I'm watching TV if I want.
For whatever reason, this has been the best year in a long time
Agreed... I think it the "Moisture" this spring. Previous years may have been too dry?
but with the cold... I would never imagined!

Good job. I have an old .177 steel springer 135. It doesn't have sling swivels. My .177 155, Dominator carbine and Proxima do and I have AK/SKS canvas slings on all three. I shoot left handed and it has never been a problem with it.

The spring is the same, but the cocking lever is different.
Assuming that there is nothing wrong with the vortek tuning kit, and the section that broke off pushed the cocking lever upwards and kept it there. I could try to bend what little wire is left of the spring upwards to facilitate the same function.
Here are a couple of links I found on spring forming, just for funsy:

I know what the 117 is, but what's the difference between it and the 747 ?
