    Hey All,

    I bought a REP about a year ago now. It can out of the box with almost no play and with time loosened up. I have cleaned in, lubed it, and tightened it.... however, one of the handles has retained a lot of play even though the pivot screws are all fully tightened. Should I try switching out the pivot screws, or any other opinions?

    How much fitting is usually necessary with bushings? Do you also use thicker washers? What about washer only knives like the bm 51 or barebones? Thicker washers to reduce play?

    tight tolerance fitting takes some skill

    thicker washers can help a little depending

    here is a pivot lap tool which can help even things out proper

    and it always helps to have a good micrometer handy

    Thanks. I figured there’s some trial and error. At least the parts aren’t too expensive. I’ve done a lot of hand fitting on my 1911 pistols so I think it would translate, but like anything else the right tools make all the difference.
