1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I have a broken wire in the bolt release wishbone, it has 2 wires spring steel.

    Or a new wish bone assy. I never mic'd the wire diameter, it is what I call spring steel piano wire.

    I believe I can pull out the old one install a new one and stake it in place.

    My friends broke last niught during a buddy shoot.

    Do you mean the slide release? I have never seen the springs offered, but a complete assembly runs about $50. Here is one, I hope this helps.

    The Model-12 action slide lock is normally not a drop-in part, so the better option, if possible, is to re-spring the original part- if that part was functional and otherwise safe before the spring snapped.

    Replacing the spring must be carefully done so that the part is undamaged from the process.

    The subtleties of fit must be proper to ensure that any replacement part (whether new or used) is not going to compromise the function or safety of the mechanism. That is why the factory never sold those parts to anyone other than qualified personnel.

    Be safe, and if in any doubt, have the part professionally fitted.
