    The model V I recently purchased arrived yesterday. I tried the handle on it also. Same thing. The stop is about an 1/8th inch too short.

    Thank you for the link Dave. Reading it, it doesn't seem like Chris was using it for the needle stop. It seems he upgraded his V with Talon and Vision parts for better trigger and needle tension. Looking at the pic he posted I doubt that his would touch the needle stop if it was screwed in all the way.

    I did make a modification to mine. I put in a larger inside diameter piece of aluminum tubing that is just a touch shy of touching the needle stop when the handle knob is fully seated. The needle moves freely inside of the tube. It should now work as I would like it to.

    Thank you for your help Dave.

    My T&C collection has found a new home. A left handed guy as it turned out.
