Sniper 1 and 2 Info
| I see you appreciate the old WGP 'guns too! Great collection, BTW...
I own Sniper II #5708. She may not be the prettiest girl at the prom, but she performs very well.
I have been looking for information on the lug for the old girl. I don't know if mine is a garage hack job or factory and thought you might have some insight as a Sniper aficionado. From what I gather, most Snipers come with a 10/32 x 1/2" lug. Mine, however, is 3/4" long and has a different thread pattern. I am not positive on what threads it has, but I know with certainty that it is 3/4" long. Additionally, the last 3/16" or so has the threads milled completely off. I haven't figured out why entirely, but I believe it has to do with the cocking rod screwing into the hammer. Looks like the threads for the cocking rod extend to the lug. Oh, and it is the ancient lug--no top-side adjustment here. The frame has to come off to gain any access to it.
Anyway, have you seen anything like this or do I have someone's weekend project? I am looking for a few extra lugs for the toolbox and my first trips to the hardware stores have been in vain.
looks nice...hehe, aftermarket back block, ball detent, pump kit, sight, reg, drop, bolt, cocking pin (rod), and barrel
