Learning a new trigger, 208s Empty Learning a new trigger, 208s

Post by bmize1 2/26/2021, 10:20 pm

I started with a 41 and moved to a conversion on a dedicated frame after about 8-9 months.
Stuck with it for the last 4 years.
I go back and shoot the 41 in a few “club” 900’s we have every month the Saturday following our regular 2700 and shoot about the same score with it as the conversion.

Several weeks ago I started really noticing all the threads here about the 208, guess since I had never considered changing, I just over looked the threads.

A left hand grip popped up and I thought, might as well grab it since lefty grips are not something you see every day.

2 weeks ago, I had a 208s randomly show up from a friend who had no idea I was even thinking about trying one out.
It was a fair price for one that looked about half worn out.
I brought it home and detail stripped it down and clean it up,
Put the new grip on and started working on the Madore scope mount (longer story)
and made it to the range last Sunday for a short session.
Not real please with the grip so I posted a wtb here and have a second one on the way now.

Me and the trigger need some time together for sure.
Sunday evening I decided it needed more weight on the muzzle end and there was a perfect spot in front of the rail where it steps down.
Cut a piece of brass scrap I had to fit, D&T’ed it from the bottom and repainted the entire mount.
Feels much better now.
Made it to the range for a few minutes to check zero after removing the dot.
Dialed it back in and moved to a clean target.

Shot 20 rounds rapid fire pace. 
The 8 was the first round, went bang before I was ready.

I think we are going to get along ok.

The sear on the 208s require lubrication with moly grease. The two-stage trigger did take me a little while to get used to, but once I adjusted it was like, WOW! My .22 scores went up a lot!

 I didn't know that 22 pistol could have 2 stage triggers, are there any other 22's that have adjustable 2 stage triggers?

Match Gun and Pardini can be set up pretty much any way you want.
Almost too many adjustments!

Thanks Tom, I see those mentioned are European made target pistols, including the 208S. I'd have to improve my fundamentals a lot more to realize the advantages of a 2 stage trigger. Right now I shoot a Nelson, but like the trigger on my HS Victor much more.

I used TW-25 when I assembled it.
It is of course not moly, but I read where it is recommended by several gun builders.
In this application, should I get some moly just for the sear surfaces?

Did you take the picture with an iPhone, then directly upload the photo from the gallery? iPhone considers "up" to be landscape, so if you took the photo in portrait, it will appear rotated once it leaves the device. Other phones sometimes do the same.

Been there, done that, had to deal with it in my Bullseye Match app. Smile

It's a special moly, the base is a little on the sticky side, and you only need it like once a year or two, if you take the gun down to the point of removing that surface coating.

Larry Carter used to sell it in tiny tubes. Maybe Red Feather has some.

I use TW-25B on defense pistols and it is good stuff. I don't know how valuable it is for the Hammerli 208s sear. Larry was THE MAN in the U.S. when it came to Hammerli semi-auto pistols and he recommended and used Moly-Slide Paste for the Hammerli .22 semi-auto pistols. I have a small tube of it, but it doesn't seem that they put it in small tubes any longer. Here is a link to the grease: https://www.neconos.com/item/MOLY-SLIDE-33

The moly for the Hammerli 208s sear/hammer is a non-graphite moly.  I have a page which highlights the cleaning and lube for a 208s as described by Larry Carter at:

Wow that has to be the greatest (maybe one of the greatest .22 pistols ever made) I have an old 208 which is over 45 years olf and still shoot it. I also have an older American Model with a 7 inch barrel and a .22 short rapid fire. Love them Hammerlis
