    Those Unique pistols are well made, and interesting, besides being good plinkers. The trigger pulls are not good enough for true target pistols, though. The model imported into the U.S. was the one with a barrel of the same length as the slice.

    retensioning is not hard at all , how you do it depends on the spring used , leaf springs use heat and compression and quenching ,

    wire, heat with some stretching ( say 10% stretch ) and then quenching

    OIl quench where possible
