Help with a Sig (Hammerli?) Trailside, please

Post by ashwednesday » Fri Jul 11, 2014 4:03 pm

So...
I've got a Sig Trailside, made by Hammerli. It is a fun little .22 pistol to shoot, but is plagued by issues with the safety switch. Part of it is a bit of plastic which juts out of the back of the slide, with a tiny spring and ball detent. Replacements for this part are sold now made of metal because the plastic deforms and allows the safety switch to, basically fall off.

There is a tiny ball bearing housed in there with a tiny spring. In the course of replacing the metal part, I lost this ball bearing. Anyone know what size it is? Otherwise, there is a place that sells the exact part for $7 plus shipping. I feel like this is high for a single ball bearing smaller than a grape seed. If someone knows the exact size, I'd appreciate the info.

Nobody knows? Call me a miser, but I'm too stubborn to pay $8 plus shipping for a blob of steel smaller than a grape seed.

Maybe give it another couple of years? Someone's bound to come along eventually who knows the answer.

Well, there's shipping and handling involved too...

Right, and who really wants to pay more for the shipping than the part?

Someone who wants the safety components on their firearm to be in correct working condition?

And who is very impatient. This person isn't.

What if you got a cheap caliper from Harbor Freight and loot sorry,"sampled" a
grape next time you went grocery shopping? That should get you close.

A Sig Trailside was my first pistol, but sorry I don't know the answer to your question.

I didn't have any of the problems with mine that I've heard about other people having, but I sold it to buy a Ruger Single Six partly so that I would shoot slower and spend less money on ammo. :lol:
