PostSubject: MGC SAA   Mon Apr 10, 2017 9:33 am

Hiya, I was given a MGC SAA on the weekend, its in pretty good nick, need a reblue but nothing major. One thing I noticed was the hammer sits flush with the frame so I cant see how it would have ever struck the cart. Looking at another MGC I have, I can see its had a 'pin' added to the hammer so it strikes the cartridge. Ive got some 5mm bar and have no issue drilling the hammer on the new one and adding a piece of bar so the gun fires but am I missing something? How did they ever work without modification? The hammer doesn't look modified or worn at all.

A lot of the MGC SAA's were shipped that way, they were modified for the USA market as at the time they were sold as display guns not firing models (it made the US import paperwork a LOT easier) however some of those modified ones also were sent to the UK. At the time they were being imported (1970s-1980s) the newer type cartridges and caps were not available outside of Japan, so the need for them to fire was not required anyway.

Great thanks, good to know. I pinned it last night so it was probably its first time firing Smile Just needs a good reblue now
