Re: 1911 .45acp questions

If you want to carry it, practice, practice, practice, sweeping the safety off. Muscle memory helps a lot when the SHTF and you need to use it. OTOH, if you have been used to sweeping the safety off on a 1911, it doesn't bother anything if you end up sweeping off the phantom thumb safety on a Canik...

Re: SAR9 Reduced Power Spring Kit

While most of those springs are stout, some of them are way over the top. When I took apart my brother’s SAR9, I had to wedge a small flathead in over the backplate and tap it with a hammer to get it to move. I understand the need to have the backplate secure but damn...

Lets work on gunsmithing tools first then you can teach me to make holsters. The piece i have is left over from the rv shop. Needs trimmed up and edges sanded but i already have it.

Re: SAR9 Reduced Power Spring Kit

The spring that adds extra pressure to the back plate is seriously overpowered. If you let it slip, that plunger pin hits warp speed and ends up in some other galaxy. When I finally slipped and let one of them loose, I heard it bounce off of the ceiling and at least three walls before it vanished in...

Re: Sarsilmaz pistol comments

I bought one, then it told me that it was lonely and needed a twin. They are soft shooters. As Weapon says...hard to beat such a machine at $249.99 at CDNN. They are very soft shooting. When I took mine to the range for the first time, I loaded it with NATO spec ammo and after the first five or six...

Re: Need opinions

Which one fits your hand better? Which one points more naturally for you? Over the years, I bought quite a few pistols just because they were a deal only to discover I pretty much hated them because they just were not a good match for my hands, they didn’t point well for me and that usually meant th...

Re: Sarsilmaz pistol comments

The SAR9 I have is incredibly well made. After field stripping it for a good clean and lube and then putting a couple hundred rounds downrange, it has smoothed up nicely. Of course I had to pull it apart and see what a little additional tuning here and there would do for it. After a $10 investment i...

Re: Tools for the home gunsmith

Never bought a bench block. I took a soft block of wood (pine) drilled some holes in it and sanded it smooth. It’s never left a mark in any gun. I have a second one I made out of block of UHMW I had left over from some other project. Same deal - drilled a few holes in it and sanded it smooth. Fancy...

@Weapon, have you taken a look to see what sights will fit on this? I'd love to at least change out the front sight.
So far as I know it uses a proprietary sight cut but some companies are supposedly going to release sights for it.

It is a cool design but I will be holding off before I even consider buying one for quite some time for competition. 1. Zero aftermarket support for the moment and that will continue until there are a decent number of them being used. That might be years from now if they stick with a $5k price tag o...

Re: The Offical Red Dot Thread

I came across this "Optic Lens Pen" and thought it would be great to clean the red dot optic lens. On one end there is a soft brush to remove any dust and dirt, and the other is a soft pad with carbon to actually "clean" the lens. Amazon has a kit that includes an air bulb, a soft brush, a lens pen...

If they wanted to change the trigger guard undercut that’s easy - make it like the one on the SAR9. It’s one of the best factory jobs I have seen.
