Lock frame help
« on: June 19, 2022, 04:46:54 PM »
So I bought a C96 and the guy told me that the sear was broken. I took it home expecting to replace the part and have it up and running. Well, he lied. The ear that is responsible for ejection is broken. This happens sometimes. What I'm wondering is if a piece can be welded on that would serve the purpose. Lock frames are hard to find as we all know. I hate to have a single shot 9mm laying around.

I don't know, but I personally didn't understand the question at all. What's wrong with the gun and what are you trying to weld? Is the extractor broken?

On the forward part of the lock frame there's a protrusion that serves as an ejector. That part is broken off on the C96 in question. The weapon has no problem with extraction.


This having to use the verification questions with every post is silly.

As mentioned previously, please provide pictures of the broken piece for further clarification.

I really don't want to take the weapon apart for pictures. If a person is familiar with the lock frame of a C96 they shouldn't really need them as they should understand completely what I'm talking about.

A friendly reply deserves a friendly ignore.

Yup, folks who know the workings of the C96 do.

sharps, So you know the workings of a C96 and don't feel the need to explain what you are talking about to us? Ok. Yet you come here asking for help or about welding. Ok.

Simple answer for you. If it is made of metal it can be welded. Fair enough. Regards,

Ok, so do you think it could be drilled and a piece be pinned in place? I understand that if I go the route of welding then I would need to have it reharded. But pinning a piece in place may eliminate the need of that. I'm wondering if anyone has ever heard of that being done. I suspect that some of the lock frames weren't properly tempered and are therefore somewhat brittle.
