Actions by T

I dropped my new Bugariam Makarov off at Teddy Jacobson's shop (Actions By T) today. Mr. Jacobson is going to do a trigger/street reliability job on the pistol. He measured the trigger weight as it is currently: 18.5 lbs. double action and 8 lbs. single action. He said he should be able to lighten the double action trigger to 9 lbs and the single action to 4 lbs. When I get it back in a couple of weeks, I'll let you know the result.

While I was in his shop, he showed me his Russian Mak that had a beautiful hard chrome finish and the smoothest trigger I have ever pulled. If mine comes out half as well I'll be a happy carnivour.

I've long heard about the outstanding work of Ted Jacobson and am interested in how your Makarov turns out. Trigger work is definitely on the "wants" list for mine too, and since I live just a few hours north of him I can carry the pistol back/forth.
His "Tips of the Day" are very helpful too. Any idea of who hard chromed his Makarov? Virgil Tripp by chance?

Hello Guy,

I'm sorry, I don't remember who plated his gun. Old age you know. I do remember he no longer works with the company. Currently he sends HIS guns to either Virgil Tripp or another firm. He told me he no longer sends customers' guns out for refinishing. I am sure he would welcome an email from you asking for a plating recommendation. He seems like a really nice guy.

In addition to the street reliability/trigger work, I have since asked him to polish the feed ramp as well. It ocurred to me that however smooth the trigger and action may be, these things will be of little help if the hollow point hangs up on the feed ramp. (I plan to carry this gun, with its single stack magazine, during the summer months in Houston.)

I enjoy and have learned a great deal his blogs too. I spent some of last evening sealing the primers on all carry ammunition according to his instructions. He really has a wealth of information based on years of experience. I would love to spend a year or so picking his brain.

I'll let you know how my gun comes out. It should be ready in a couple of weeks.

Hey willieboy, I've gotten your PM and would like to answer you via a PM. I don't have your email address though. Got a couple of quick questions. Again, mine is [email protected]

Thanks a bunch. That sight option is really worth considering in terms of $$$, and likewise, a wife that's about to fall out due to handgun expenditures.
