    Does anyone have any drawings or literature that shows how Ljutic's thrust hammer system works?

    By golly I'm glad he didn't ask how to build a computer!
    Seriously I have a Ljutic Centennial Pro SS which was the last version of Al's thrust hammer guns as modified and improved by Jimmy Ljutic.
    It does reduce felt recoil and is built like a tank as are all Ljutic guns!
    Good folks and Al is something of a genius, still going at 90!

    Basically it is a weighted firing pin. The pin is drawn back in a tube within the stock and when the trigger is released or pulled the whole weight/firing pin is driven forward by a pretty stout spring. The forward movement cancels some of the recoil as it stops at the primer. You can feel it work without a shell by dry firing. The gun actually moves forward slightly when you drop the hammer. Interesting concept.

    Al Ljutic is one helluva guy, and love him or hate him, he is definitely one of a kind, and someone I'm proud to call a friend.
