Re: Polishing the Barrel

Then you will have to be proactive and persistent against rust. If so, then I approve. :-BD (just in case you care) The approval of the community at large and the guys like you who know a lot more than I do about this stuff carries a lot of weight. Thats why I tend to run every little thing by the ...

Re: Polishing the Barrel

It would be purely for aesthetics. But yeah, I hadn't considered the protective layer aspect of this. Maybe I should rethink this or find out about finishes that can be both shiny and protective.

Polishing the Barrel

I just realized that my title could be a double entendre. Im okay with that, lol. Can anyone tell me for sure what finish is on the barrel of the SF and SFx? Nitride, Phosphate, etc. I want to polish my barrel and Im not sure if wet sanding with 1500 grit then getting busy with some flitz and a felt...

Re: Contest - Reduced Power Spring Kit for Elite, SFx and Elite Combat

What a nice way to find out the site is back up! I’ve got a stock SFx (plus optic) and this would be a great first step and intro to mods. And I expect this would work just fine in the SF which I also have, stock.

Thanks for the chance!

@Ghostwolf308 Thats exactly what I was going to say. My wife and I usually just use the buzzer function and then time it on a stopwatch because of that very problem.

Mine is bulky bc I am broke and cheap, but it’s a light and laser. The light is powerful enough that it illuminates houses across the street. TP9SF https://thumb.ibb.co/bNgcJV/6164447-F-7-A89-4-D98-9-EA5-8-E0-BF1-D855-D9.jpg https://thumb.ibb.co/ebwBdV/A075-B350-C2-ED-463-E-A3-F6-DFB8999-AE27-F.jpg

Re: Spring change with mag extensions?

Glad to know there are other springs that would work here. Im going to try my hand at 3D printing some extensions. I found a +2 I can print so I was thinking about playing with the file and seeing if I can stretch the object to get a longer extension. If I can, Ill need a longer spring.

Re: Another SFX not cycling

In my case, Garrett (the best representative ever) and I went back and forth for a couple of weeks trying to troubleshoot the problem. When nothing fixed it he authorized a replacement. I really dont know how all that works, but there was nothing required on my end. I mailed them my gun and they mai...

Re: Another SFX not cycling

I sent my SFx back for feeding and cycling issues. In my case they replaced the pistol with a new one. This took four weeks or so. The new one shoots/cycles/etc. like a dream.

Good luck, YMMV.

Re: Black Friday Wish List

I still love shooting my Caniks (that replacement SFx they sent me is a dream) but Ive sort of started to to really enjoy rifles at the moment. I kind of want a Savage A17 Target Thumbhole semiautomatic with brown wood laminate stock and a bull barrel. Not that Ive given it much thought, obviously. ...

M.A.P.F. Unique Model 52 .22LR

Grabbed this little .22 semiautomatic pretty much on a whim. Its in pretty bad shape- no grips or escutcheons and the finish is coming off in places. But when I saw it it just kind of spoke to me. Got it for $75. At that price I can afford to get new grips and have it refinished. https://thumb.ibb.c...

Ive been looking for a mat with the schematics and such for the SF, like the ones they have for the Elite and SFx. The only reference Ive found is on a forum review of the SF where they have a picture of the gun on that mat. Ive contacted Century and Canik and both tell me its not available, I will ...

My wife just suggested a metallic silver when I showed her the white numbers I did tonight and told her that I couldnt figure out what color to do the lettering in. Also considering a nice gold.
