a few years ago the transfer bar broke in half in my new model blackhawk. bought one at gun show from a man who carried ruger parts, carried it home and installed it. much to my dismay the bar wouldn't come up far enough to cover the firing pin when the trigger was pulled. i assumed i must have bought the wrong part. i removed the bar, built up about 3/16's of an inch on the top of the bar with weld and ground it to the proper shape, reinstalled it in my gun and shot for the next 2 years until it broke again. i ordered 1 from numrich arms being careful to get the right one but when it came , it too was too short. wonder if i have a problem with my trigger not lifting it high enough, not living right, etc. anyone have an opinion. i'm still shooting using a modified bar. thanks , hub.
