And I thought that pic didn't really show it as bad as it looks in real life lol
This one isn't assisted,so no torsion bar, just really, really stiff action.
First thing I did when I got it was grind down some screws that were keeping the CF from laying flat.....which is what killed my chances at returning it lol
But i tried a bunch of stuff to tweak the action, to no avail.
Thinner oil on the bearings (comes in heavy grease, because they're loose bearings), adjusting the pivot tightness (immediately rubs the liner at anything less than 100% tight), bending back the lock bar (did nothing).
Last thing left to try is drilling out the detent hole, giving it a little ramp to release easier....but I haven't bothered opening it up again, since I'd still then have to grind the heel and figure out the stiffness even if I get the detent to lighten up. So, it just sits in a box looking pretty 😒
