Evo hammer / bolt wear
« on: November 29, 2018, 09:51:23 PM »
Hey guys,

I did some searching but was unable to find the information I'm looking for. I have a gen 2 evo that had the welded trigger. Not sure on the round count as I purchased used, but the hammer and bolt seem to have more wear that I have seen on other firearms. I'll post some pictures as soon as I get a chance. My biggest concern is the bolt, it has the typical shine mark on the bottom near the firing pin safety, but also has a rounded edge where the bolt contacts the hammer to recock the firearm.

Thanks,

Dallas

I don't recall off hand if my bolt is worn the same or not but the hammer wear issue has come up before and was deemed normal. Mine looked similar after only a few hundred rounds but hasn't gotten worse either.

Thanks guys. The rounded section on the back of the bolt is what worried me most.

I had those same thoughts when I first got my Scorpion. I took a small stone and polished/rounded that edge on the bolt. Not much...just enough to take the edge off. I did the same thing on the hammer.   Well 4K rounds later I can tell you what I did was unneeded. The wear is completely normal and actually just stopped after it was like yours. I had also asked HBI and they told me exactly what they told you. They are a wealth of very useful information and they are great for this sport.   
Go shoot that puppy 😎.

Thank you for the info. I've had the gun for a year or so and love to shoot it.
