Thanks Mike. I'm not confident with my fine motor skills to do the necessary on the pistol, although it LOOKS simple enough. I found a guy 'locally' and am going to have him do it - the right tools for the job and all that bullshit, right? I got a loader for the HP, and it's a lot nicer to use that. I was whining about the Ruger Mark I mags that have a tiny little round button and a narrow throat - right pain in der thumbs those - I had a slider that helped but my bud broke it last trip to the range - need to make a new one out of lexan sheet. UPS Delivered my ammo order last week, now if I can kick this cold and get out to the range! That and it was minus Eleven this AM.
