– Hey everybody, Adam
from Atlas Gun Works.

[00:00:03.00]
We’re gonna talk about
hammer and sear engagement,

[00:00:04.09]
in this video today and
we’re gonna show you

[00:00:06.06]
a cool new way that we’re
gonna sell these products

[00:00:08.09]
to make your life a little bit easier.

[00:00:11.06]
(slow hip-hop music)

[00:00:18.09]
So hammer and sear engagement,

[00:00:20.05]
super important to how your trigger feels,

[00:00:22.04]
how crisp your trigger is.

[00:00:24.02]
And there’s a bunch of different

[00:00:26.02]
factors to this, but the
biggest factor that we find

[00:00:30.01]
is that the hammer and sear

[00:00:32.00]
will have slight variations
in ’em, in batches.

[00:00:36.03]
This angle might be slightly negative

[00:00:39.03]
or slightly positive on the hammer

[00:00:40.09]
and then vice versa on the sear.

[00:00:44.02]
Typically what gunsmiths
do is they stone this

[00:00:47.05]
to be 90 degrees square
and then they’ll come in

[00:00:49.09]
and see where the sear angle meets that

[00:00:52.03]
and they’ll come in and
reshape the sear face.

[00:00:55.01]
We used to do that; we’ve
done lots of that here.

[00:00:57.04]
That’s pretty common gunsmith practice,

[00:00:59.07]
but our volumes are up so high

[00:01:02.05]
that we can just take this
cool little microscope,

[00:01:05.05]
this is a 20x, maybe
not a full microscope,

[00:01:08.00]
but a 20x magnifier on a jig.

[00:01:10.06]
And you can by these at Brownells.

[00:01:13.00]
Rather than everybody on the planet

[00:01:14.02]
having to own one of
these, we take and match

[00:01:16.08]
every single one of our
hammer and sears ahead of time

[00:01:19.05]
and we get so many hammers
and sears that we can do that.

[00:01:23.02]
Somebody asked, how we get
the hammer and sear sets

[00:01:27.01]
matched up, and the old answer was,

[00:01:28.06]
we did ’em the way every
gunsmith probably does ’em,

[00:01:31.01]
where you’re stoning ’em and
getting the angle square.

[00:01:34.06]
And then we realized here
that it was just faster,

[00:01:37.08]
because we get so many.

[00:01:39.01]
If you don’t have a
couple hundred of these,

[00:01:41.06]
of each on hand, then you
probably can’t do this,

[00:01:43.05]
but we run a pretty
serious volume in these

[00:01:45.06]
for our own deals,

[00:01:47.07]
so folks asked if we would sell ’em.

[00:01:49.02]
So anyway now they come, we
will call it the Perfect Match,

[00:01:51.09]
but we will have a hammer and sear

[00:01:54.04]
where they’re in the jig there perfect.

[00:01:56.01]
Now the disclaimer here is,

[00:01:57.09]
if your hammer and sear
pin holes in your gun

[00:02:00.02]
are not perfectly square, then,

[00:02:05.09]
there goes our plunger,

[00:02:08.07]
so if these two holes aren’t,

[00:02:12.04]
exactly where they’re supposed to be

[00:02:13.09]
and the two holes aren’t drilled

[00:02:15.00]
perfectly straight and
parallel to one another,

[00:02:17.00]
you might have some massaging to do.

[00:02:18.08]
But if you buy the perfect
matched pair to start with,

[00:02:21.06]
your starting point is 10 times easier.

[00:02:24.07]
For example, probably 1 in 10 guns

[00:02:29.06]
need a little massaging on our end,

[00:02:31.07]
and nine out of 10 we can
put that kit in there,

[00:02:34.04]
do what we do to clean
up the faces a little bit

[00:02:36.04]
and off and away you go.

[00:02:39.09]
We’ll sell these parts
individually on the website,

[00:02:42.01]
but we’ll also sell them
now as a matched pair,

[00:02:44.03]
and they’ve been under 20x
power in the jig and passed,

[00:02:48.06]
and they’ll come right
off our production line

[00:02:50.02]
so it won’t be any different

[00:02:51.01]
than we match them for ourselves.

[00:02:53.02]
Hope to see you guys on the range soon.
