I finally got myself an SM1k, and I'd love it if the auto-rotation didn't kill itself.

 

Looking around I've seen many posts alluding to the fragility of the SM1k auto-rotation mechanism, but I haven't found any pictures or descriptions of how it breaks. Can anyone provide info so that I can attempt to reinforce accordingly?

 

I'll include a picture to refresh everyone's memory:

I've labelled the three components A, B, and C for easy reference. Original picture by Blue.

 

I'm guessing that the likely failures are:

1. Either of the two arms of component "A" snap (shouldn't be hard to reinforce or even replace the whole thing).

2. Component B breaks somehow (either breaking off the tip that interfaces with the cylinder or breaking where it attaches to part "C").

3. "C" seems pretty sturdy, but again the all-plastic, pin-in-hole connection to part "B" could be an issue for either component.

 

Any prior experience with SM1ks that you can share is appreciated.

The tab on the front of the trigger broke off of mine. I repaired it with some polycarbonate and a 6-32 screw sticking up to replace the tab.
