You are very welcome....BTW...I don't understand why bringing up old threads is anything more than "neutral"....neither faux pax or otherwise. As long as we keep to topic, it is a good "collection point" to discuss the same area of interest.

It's no big big deal, guys. Honest. My only purpose in raising the issue at all was to generate some additional discussion from members who aren't long since dead. :)

Only that a fresh thread would bring some potential new players to the table; some of the folks in this original post are long since dead from the forum. Thanks for posting the fresh videos, in any event.
Reports of my demise have been greatly exaggerated :D
Seriously, every forum seems to have different rules concerning old threads. If a moderator recommends starting a new thread, and in this case I think Searcher is only trying to help with his suggestion, I would do so. One thing I have learned on EVERY forum I am on...the moderator is the last word on EVERYTHING. :eek: :)

Not to beat a dead horse ( too late ! ... :) ).....certainly we need to heed the suggestions of any websites' moderators. Often, the rules have some common-sense basis that transcends all websites....the business of resurrecting old threads vs not doing so seemed to me a different situation in that doing such seems to make later searches easier by having topics clumped closer together. It needn't even involve the original thread responders as long as the later entries stayed to topic. Oh well, as Searcher himself said, perhaps we're making too much hay about this altogether.

If Tanfoglio has such extra info sources....that is great to know. Maybe post a link here of an example?

I'm not sure that this forum has a rule, hard and fast or otherwise, on the resurrection of older threads. One thing is certain: We often refer folks to them when topics come up that have been covered in the past.

In this case, though, far better to let the topic runs its course here, seeing as how we've ground it up fairly well already:

Glad to see that you are still sitting up and taking nourishment, Deputy. :)

That You Tube video is the best & most helpful thing I have seen. It answered alot of questions I had. I don't care how it got here just thanks to IPSC .

Searcher,, I hate to bring up a sticky again but this would be a super one, maybe on the thread at the top of the page.. Gene

Information sharing is what web sites like this are all about. An incredible amount of "collective wisdom" exists on any topic imaginable. I am glad to be able to finally contribute... instead of asking the many previous questions I did to folks on this forum.

Well.....that all said.....can anyone help with details on the strip-down/reassembly of a 22LR slide for PP/PPK? ( It is different than the centerfire models since it does not have a loaded-chamber indicator. A view of an upside-down slide for 22LR does not show an exposed firing pin/spring that can be pushed forward to allow strip-down of the safety lever and the rest..as is the case for centerfire models).

I recently joined the Walther Forum and I like the good manners and mutual respect that I see here (or at least in the PP/TPH section, which is the one I regularly visit), which is illustrated by this thread. There's absolutely nothing wrong about disagreeing - in fact, how boring it'd be if we all agreed! However, as the great (and unfortunately late) Stephen A. Camp used to say (in a much more elegant manner than me), it' all about sharing knowledge and trying to find the truth, not about showing everybody else how smart you are. Searcher 451, I'm not buttering you up but I think you can take some credit for the tone of the Forum.

Searcher does do a great job moderating, and probably 98% of the guys here do show mutual respect for one another and their opinions, and not just in the PP forum. There are two or three trolls here who can't stand dissenting opinions (and who can't read and comprehend English to boot), but you'll figure out who they are before too long.

Allow me to go back to response # 29 above..... are there any instructions or videos showing how to strip-down a 22LR slide? I'm at a loss when comparing the build architecture between the centerfire and rimfire versions.
