Opinions on the HAMMR?

Post by Amati on 3/29/2018, 5:46 am

Is the HAMMR shooting machine a good lower cost option to the Ransom or is it not worth considering? I've found one with the 1911 set-up but I don't know if I should consider it.

A few Smith's use it rather than a ransom

Owned several. They work pretty well given the cost..

I did away with the cable remote firing deal and made a thumb rest like the ransom to fire the pistol.
10-32 shoulder bolt if memory serves.

Sold a new in the box one for $300 a few years back on fleebay.

I must consult with you once I get it and put it together.
I bought this one for $100, no box but I think I did OK.
