Re: Canik TP9 Series Modifications and Upgrades

Has anyone tried a suppressor on the SFX? I am back from the dead! Okay - maybe it was just a really heavy workload but I am fairly sure I felt at least half dead for much of it. I haven’t tried a supressor on an SFx yet but I would expect it to be fairly typical and require some of the usual tweak...

Re: Aftermarket barrels for the TP9v2/DA

You *might* be able to find a V2 9mm top end (slide, barrel and RSA) and that *might* work for a caliber swap. The 40v2 is fairly rare and I never thought about trying a slide swap with the 9mm version when I had both in reach. On the other hand, that may end up costing you just about as much as a V...

Re: Disaster Preparedness

how many times can you add fuel stabilizer to gasoline? probably a moot point as the fuel stabilizer surely has a fairly short shelf life as well.

Re: AR 47

Yeah - AKMs used to be dirt cheap and the ammo for them was even cheaper. You could walk in an LGS, grab an AK, mags and a decent bit of ammo and walk out having spent well under $500. ARs were a lot more expensive at that time. The rifle alone would cost more than the AK with extra mags and a bunch...

It isn’t wound up so no spring pressure and it saves me from having to find boxes for 75 rounds of ammo. :)

Re: Firearms want list...

All of them. 😁 There are actually several on sale at the moment that are fairly tempting. IAC Hawk 12 gauge pump (basically an 870 clone but it has a milled trigger guard and trigger group). They are dirt cheap at CDNN at the moment. Zenith MC312 is also a lot of boomstick for the money. Several ver...

Re: AR 47

I have an old metal norinco 75 round windup drum somewhere...it probably still has 75 rounds in it.
I can’t put the wood back on mine because my ex pitched it at some point. 😠 As such, it is wearing a 922r compliant Dragunov style MAK stock. It’s ugly but it works.

Re: Canik TP9 Series Modifications and Upgrades

That Gen 4 adapter is kind of an annoying little part. I wanted it to be a tight fit (so it wouldn’t just pop out if I took the gun apart at the range) but then you run into the issues with loss of quick and tooless takedown if it is super tight due to the barrel fit. I almost made a half moon cut i...

I was perfectly happy not knowing that the Kimber KHX (OR) existed, but no, you had to go and mention it and therefore I had to Google it. If it had a rail it would be on its way to my LGS alrea...

The reason I kept my AK is twofold. 1, I have around 3000 rounds of the old ammunition. (90’s purchase) 2, Mine is the Norinco MAC 90 model I bought new in the 90’s. (Cheap in the day) I have installed the stock lumber and gave the stock in the picture away. Bet I haven’t shot more than 50 rounds t...

The first Canik I saw at a local gun shop was a Shark FC. I looked it over and almost bought it but didn’t know anything about the brand. The gun store owner didn’t know squat about them either - he had just ordered it during the great gun drought that followed a particularly massive panic buyout of...

Re: Striker or Hammer for Conceal Carry?

S&W SD9VE (apex’d), etc. How does the SD9VE with the Apex trigger compare to the SF Elite stock trigger? I used to have an SD40 VE and it was a decent shooter, but the trigger was meh. The two triggers are pretty much apples and oranges. The SF Elite has that area of almost zero resistance take up ...
