LBR Rod Instructions 
 If in doubt check with your FEO for local requirements for carrying out this work, guidelines vary from area to area. At the least you will most likely be required to remove the cylinder from the frame to render the revolver inactive during the work before carrying out this procedure. 

These instructions envisage the use of a Pillar Drill or milling machine at appropriate speeds and the cutting fluid supplied. If in doubt please email for assistance. 

Set your drill speed for stainless steel and a 3mm HSS Drill Bit and referring to the photograph opposite fit the machining jig to the grip frame, the small holes fits over the grip location pins and the two halves of the jig are clamped to the frame with the 3 screws provided, ensuring that the lower edge of the jig is parallel to the bottom of the grip frame. 
Check that the brass bushed holes are over the crimp marks retaining the original rod and adjust alignment if required. 
Using the drill bit and guide bush as shown opposite drill halfway through the frame and rod from each side. 

Next lower your drill speed to it's minimum and use the supplied milling cutter to "Drill" down to the depth limit set by the bush on the cutter on each side of the frame. 

You will now be able to gently work the original rest free of the frame and with the bonding compound supplied bond the new rod into the frame. 

Once the new rod is bonded in place drill from both sides again, finishing by drilling carefully all the way through to ensure clearance for the fixing screw. 
Next cut to depth again from each side with the milling cutter to provide clearance in the rod for the fixing discs. 
Fit the fixing discs and screw with additional bonding compound and once fully set centre drill the screw to provide permanence and anti-tamper to the rod retention. 
Finally measure the overall length with the rod end in place and if required trim the rod before finally bonding the rod end in place.
