Re: Bergara Barrels
Bellm is not the "answer man" for T\C's. In fact, he can and does create problems for Thompson Center rifles and handguns.
I can tell you from personal experience that when I purchased my ProHunter, I sent it to him for a trigger job. When I got it back I found that he put a 55lb hammer spring in it. He had to put in such a strong spring because his sear cut angle was so steep that any lighter spring would cause the hammer to drop without pulling the trigger.
However, when shooting 12ga shotgun, the firing pin would strike the shells so hard that it would pierce them.
Also, the swing hammer could not be used because the hammer was so brutal to pull back. If I set the hammer to the side, it was almost impossible to pull back the hammer.
Bellm's solution was to "sell" me a 45lb hammer spring that he was gonna have in stock in "2 weeks." A month later I sent the frame back to T\C and ask them to remove Bellm's junk and fix it.
T\C did a super fine trigger job and charged me nothing!!!
I'd never buy or send Bellm anything again. He's a wanna be gun maker but no more than a shoe maker.
