I was speaking to a salesman from a supply house today and he offered a very useful tip.

I was concerned about a miscellaneous small part flying away, and he suggested disassembling the gun in a clear plastic bag.

So friggin simple I'm embarrassed I didn't think of it myself.

Yes, that technique has been discussed over many threads and many years here...and yet knowing this technique didn't stop me from launching a P226 Magazine Release Catch Pin into low-earth orbit earlier this year...and upon re-entry it remains M.I.A. Wink

Oh, great, just great.

Now that I’ve congratulated myself for never (well …, hardly ever) having launched a part into the black hole of my basement workshop, the karma gods are cackling wildly as they await my next project. Now I probably need to fabricate an entire plastic sheet enclosure around my work bench.

I was considering one of these...but I like how you think...Go BIG or GO HOME!

I did it once with a Walther PPK/S because when I tried it the first time, I sent a couple of springs into the next galaxy.

I use a dry cleaner bag when working with small springs.

Used that method with an AR lower assembly.
