That pretty well describes any hammerless action. -- Not Completely -- Most 'hammerless' boxlock actions do in fact have internal hammers. The later Stevens 311 guns have them. However, certain earlier submodels of the 311, the Stevens 330, 3151, 315 and so forth actually do not have hammers at all. The firing pins are very long and extend back into the action and are actually themselves held against spring tension by the sears. Pulling the trigger lowers the sear associated with that trigger and allows the firing pin to go forward under tension from its spring, firing that barrel. We have a substantial inventory of parts for these guns.

What are axes and hammers use for?

Hammers and Axes are used to cut and build stock market prices. . you see, ever since George W Bush was a kid, his father used to threaten to hit his trust funds with a gigantic axe. Therefore, whenever he grew up. .he had a phobia of axes in the stockmarket. . so he got rid of them and then all that was left were the hammers. The hammers kept building the prices up and up until they eventually collapsed. You see, there were no axes to balance out the hammers.

What is the age of J Stevens Arms Crackshot?

The approximate dates are abt 1886-1916. In 1920 Stevens started using the "J. Stevens Arms Co." instead of the Stevens Tools and Arms of earlier versions - I think Crackshots were made thru 36 (?) - so I'm assuming yours is a later version - 1920-36. Hope that helps THe No 26 was manufactured from 1912 - 1939.

What type of piano has an una corda pedal?

While the left pedal on virtually any acoustic piano would be called the una corda pedal, the name comes closest to being true for pianos built in the style of the grand piano, with a vertical soundboard. On a grand, when the una corda is depressed, the entire keyboard is shifted slightly to the right. The keyboard itself moves! This is because the entire action is built in such a fashion that if you want the hammers to strike the wires in a different alignment, then the entire action has to move to accommodate the movement of the hammers. This is done so that (theoretically) the hammers that normally strike three wires, for notes in the piano's mid-range, are striking one wire instead. However, I believe this is not really what happens. Using the una corda does produce a different sound but the hammers don't move enough to really isolate one wire for striking. What happens is that the slight movement of the hammers causes the hammers to make contact with the wires at places on the hammers that have not been hardened by normal playing. The result is that a slightly softer felt is causing the string to vibrate, producing a slightly softer and rounder tone.

How does a helicopter move forward?

When the stick is moved by the pilot, it moves an assembly called a swashplate accordingly. The swashplate is at the rotor base. When this moves, it changes the pitch of the rotor blades. As the pitch changes, the orientation of lift produced changes as well. Thus, when the stick is moved forward, the blade pitch is affected by the swashplate to re-orient the lift forward, instead of directly vertical, and the helicoptor is pulled in a forward direction.
