MAGNUM HAMMER for 22XX, Discovery, Maximus, Fortitude & PCP pistols

$44.00

THIS HAMMER ELIMINATES ROUGH COCKING AND BINDING, THE CAUSE OF WHICH IS MOST OFTEN A LOOSE-FITTING COCKING PIN.


SELECT THE PIN-SHOULDER DIAMETER AND LOW OR HIGH-PRESSURE VERSION FROM THE DROP-DOWN MENU ABOVE. DETAILED INFO ON THESE OPTIONS IS EXPLAINED BELOW


 MEDIUM STRENGTH THREADLOCKER IS RECOMMENDED TO KEEP THE THREADED PIN FROM LOOSENING. IF THE PIN COMES LOOSE IT CAN BIND AGAINST THE TUBE OR BREAK-OFF. WE USE AND RECOMMEND LOCTITE 243. THE THREADS OF BOTH PARTS SHOULD BE CLEAN AND DRY BEFORE ASSEMBLY BUT LOCTITE 243 TENDS TO WORK WELL EVEN WHEN SLIGHT AMOUNTS OF GREASE OR OIL IS PRESENT


The striker pin can be adjusted back into the hammer or forward to extend the reach of the hammer. Back further reduces hammer bounce and may improve consistency at lower power settings. Further forward will produce more power with less hammer force, this keeps the gun easier to cock at higher power levels. It should not be adjusted forward so that it hits the valve body before the cocking pin hits the end of the slot in the tube. The valve could be damaged if the striker pin hits it. Generally 1/16" to 3/32" is the furthest forward from the face of the hammer you can adjust the striker pin.


 It weighs about the same as a standard 22XX hammer at 2 oz. It fits all 2240, 2250, 2260, 2300T, 2300S, 2300KT, 2400KT, Discovery, Maximus, and Fortitude models. It will also fit Marauder Pistol, 1720T, 1701P & Challenger if you cut the thread-in cocking pin shorter to match the original pin in height. You will need to extend the pin slot as shown in the last photo so the hammer can be inserted and removed with the pin installed. Those mods are easy to do with a metal-cutting wheel on a Dremel tool or using a hack-saw blade and file. It's listed in two versions. One version has a cocking-pin with a .195" OD shoulder the other has a .240" OD shoulder. The .240 OD shoulder is the heaviest-duty version but will not fit through the hole in the tube. It requires the pin slot to be extended as shown in the last photo so it can be inserted or removed with the pin installed.
