Re: Metal Injection Molding (MIM) discussion

My first 357 revolver a Colt trooper had a mim hammer it broke after a few hundred rounds and after breaking a second hammer the Colt was replaced with a Smith and Wesson.

Re: Striker or Hammer for Conceal Carry?

I had gen 2 and 3 glock 19's that I loved when the gen 4 MOS came out I had to have one. Changes were made with the trigger bar and firing pin safety plunger that made it just feel wrong. Plus the second or third time I took it to the range I had a slam fire so the POS went back to Glock and was ret...

New from Kansas

I own many fine D/A revolvers and S/A , D/A S/A pistols but I could never find a striker fired pistol with a trigger I liked. The trigger on my new Canik it's as good as many of my target pistols costing 4 times as much.
