Mine. The story goes that Franz wanted to give Free Pistol shooters the ability fit more practice in so he, seeing the development of semi .22'2 in the US sponsored development in his company.
Franz was a board member of Deutsche Telephone, a company headed by his brother. When this company was sold it is not unreasonable to assume that it was a significant payday for Franz. If one looks at his homeThanks for the interesting article you sent me!
I probably misunderstood you - your description of the company as a hobby of Franz Stock, I interpreted as a pejorative, fundamental criticism of the quality of Stock pistols. You are obviously not of this opinion, since you describe the 7.65 and 6.35 pistols as "high quality pistols". I agree...😂
But I still don't understand the money bag thing - maybe you can explain it to me...😉
Could be a coinkydink I supposeI assume EdD and the Ed D. coauthoring the Unblinking Eye article are somehow related? 😉
I got the McMaster-Carr springs today and tried them out. They do seem very close to the original but unfortunately they merely brought the light strike rate down to a solid 50%. The only other option I can think of before giving up is to have a heavier firing pin made. I have a machinist friend who might be able to do it. The narrowed section in the middle of the pin doesn't appear to serve any purpose that I can tell so excluding that cut when making a new pin would add a decent amount of extra mass to the pin which might make it hit hard enough to fire consistently.
