For those of you who began to think my U.N.C.L.E. Special project died on the vine—think again.
Apologies for the lack of news and off-topic entries recently. The lag was due to the play in my grip I chronicled in "The Modicum of Movement Affair." Anyway, thanks to a brilliant idea from Paul and Eric—along with Joe Hayes' first-rate gunsmithing skills—the obstacle is no more.
The solution involved anchoring the grip to the frame by installing set screws on each side of the magwell's interior. However, I suspect the idea to be a mere speck in relation to their collective genius. They even offered a solution for the scope mount's thumbscew backing out during recoil. To make a long story short, between Joe's work, along with Paul and Eric's suggestions, all prior issues preventing a thorough accuracy test—an acid test, if you will—of my U.N.C.L.E. Carbine should be will be resolved as a result of anchoring the grips along with the adding a spring washer to the scope mount's thumbscrew.
So, dig out those chemical-stained lab coats, prepare eye and ear protection and above all—prepare for "The Acid Test Affair."
