Smith & Wesson 79G Frame Bent

One of the main concerns when rebuilding the Smith and Wesson 79G
is where the valve mounts up to the pistol frame, looking at the image below
the frame is bent in by the valve mount screws on both sides of the S&W 78g frame


This needs to be corrected, if no corrections is made there will be an eventual
crack, putting an end to a very nice old collectible Smith & Wesson.

The best way to fix this is to use brass shim stock, bent the shim to the same
shape as the valve and fill in with enough to allow the valve to get tight and letting
the frame stay straight,

The ship stock should be the same length as the valve   and 3 times the width as
the screw head. I will show the shims when I get some extra time but its a basic procedure.





The difference between the
Smith & Wesson 78g and the 79G
is the pellet caliber, (78G 22 caliber)
the (79G 177 caliber)

I will be rebuilding a few of these next week
and will show the insides, there should be no surprise as the 78g and the 79g are the same gun.



Daisy did acquire the rights to the gun
and as usual the gun suffered in quality.   
the Daisy 780 and 790 are just OK guns.

I'm not into bashing, Daisy has, can, and will
build quality but only when it fits there needs.


Modifications can be made to the Smith & Wesson 79G that will get the pistol
to shoot in the 450 to 475 range. in doing modifications the S&W 79G will loose
shot count per cartridge. Before modifying the 79g I advise trying a lighter pellet.

In today's market their are dozens of quality pellets available and using a quality lighter
pellet to increase the FPS the shot count will remain high and it is possible the accuracy
will increase with the FPS.
