Re: How do civil wars happen.

This was published in March 2013. It's also a bit of a read, but there are a few salient points that align with the OP. @runeight, do you have a link to the original post? This might be good enough to get me out of Thanksgiving already. https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/the-second-amendment-as-an-expr...

Re: Canik 01 Optic Mounting Plate

Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t the owners manual state to use their screws and NOT the screws supplied with red dot?

My Ruger has been reliable...I think it looks decent, and a pocket gun has requirements of size over looks. For the cost, it is a great value gun. Besides, you can't fit an Elite in a Speedo.
Speedo? :o

How do civil wars happen.

Copied and pasted from anther form. A good read nonetheless. How do civil wars happen? Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can't settle the question through elections because they don't even agree that elections are how you decide who's in charge. That's the basic issue here...

Re: Canik Elite Combat – Setting a High Bar

I had a Kimber Micro 9 Eclispe. Bought the first on I saw online. Sold to a friend who wanted it worse than me.

By far the best carry gun I have owned to date. Carry a S&W revolver which is my second favorite. Revolvers just work, every time.

I don’t own the elite, just the SFx. No plans on buying one either. Too many ahead of the elite on my want list.

Re: Springco email.

Shouldn’t take long. In production.

The email was the hoops they jumped through with CNC manufactures to produce them.

No worries.

Re: Canik Elite Combat – Setting a High Bar

if its anywhere near a $1000 they better at least change the way they do the rmr mount so you can keep you rear sights otherwise they wont be able to compete with competition in that price range. Sorry guys, wouldn’t even consider one at that price especially a poly gun. Personally I think the Elit...

Re: Changing front sight

so, you are saying to "overheat" the rear end of the rod....correct? If the FO has a bulb slip in from the back seating inside the sight post recess. If no bulb heat one end and slightly make a bulb, slip into sight post recess from the back. Score the front FO about 1/16 th of an inch, snap off. S...

Re: Changing front sight

Front? You don’t see the front when aiming.

FO works on one principle. Light. The brighter the light the better the sight. Think inside versus outside.

Re: Stainless Steel Guide Rods

The weights you see are the guide rod springs.

Some firearms, like Glock, use poly guide rods. Nothing wrong with them as they are well proven however some people prefer to upgrade. I being one of them.

So your saying you didn’t have a bulb end already?
Correct...just a couple pieces of rod.
That would dim it down some.
