Re: 1911 .45acp questions

I just found a lightly used RIA with compensator. It’s one of their higher end models. They only want $450.00 for it. I just bought my new Shield, but 450.00 for a nice compensated RIA may be to hard to pass up I’m not aware of any RIAs that came with comps. I’d be concerned about someone putting a...

Re: Trip to Yellowstone and Mt Rushmore need holster options

Double check the rules for carry where you are going. Many National Parks won’t allow weapons at all, while National Forrests do.

Re: Super Cheap MKEK Pistols in Turkey

I wouldn’t mind an inexpensive, well made PPK clone, but I doubt they meet the 1968 import restrictions.

Re: 1911 .45acp questions

I tend to like my 1911s on the simple side. The Fusion (wooden grips) was one I built from a fitted slide, frame and barrel to be my pistol for Service Pistol matches in the Navy. (I also would use my Beretta in some matches.) The rules are pretty strict on it staying very close to military issue co...

Re: 1911 .45acp questions

1911s can indeed have some quirks. Not necessarily manufacturer specific. If they have the original internal extractor, they often need a bit of “tuning” to allow proper feeding and extraction. Mild radius at the lower edge at the extractor hook to allow the rims of the rounds to slide smoothly up t...

Re: Lever action or semi auto carbine?

If you want to pick up a used leveraction at a decent price, check the pawn shops after hunting season. Sometimes right before Christmas. Folks pawn them when work is slow, they aren’t hunting and Santa needs monetary backing.

Re: Lever action or semi auto carbine?

I picked up a Marlin 336 lever action at a pawn shop for a rock bottom price several years ago. I had fun playing around with it. Tried running it in carbine drills, which was fine if I didn’t need reloads. I tried low power shotgun scope, and even a red dot. The lever action should not be underesti...

Re: newb looking for range ammo advice

Fiocchi, Sellier&Bellot, IMI, Speer Lawman all worked well in the early round counts with my Caniks. After they each digested their first 1K or so rounds, they seem to eat most anything. I’ve run Federal, American Eagle, Remington UMC, Winchester USA, Blazer brass and aluminum case, Federal Champion...

Re: Holster Question: Self-Defense vs. Competition

As Lgaam said, when drawing from appendix, I am mostly bringing the pistol straight up my body and meeting my support hand near chest level. Then I’m just pushing/pointing straight out from my chest,almost like punching the muzzle forward toward my target while I find my front sight. It becomes pret...

Re: Carrying with an empty chamber

I can cite a real world example of where a loaded chamber made a difference, and an empty chamber would have likely had a very different outcome. A friend was working out of town and staying in a hotel for a few days. He was headed to his truck to go get dinner. As he walked through the parking lot,...

Re: Can anyone define +P?

Unfortunately it’s not that simple. The peak pressure may occurs oat different points in the bullets path down the barrel based on what powder a manufacturer is using, what overall outer diameter the bullet truly is, and how much bearing surface and friction is generated by the bullet. Any data a ma...

Re: Love and hate, life with a Tristar

I already have a CZ75 and I already have another T-120 that I bought in anticipation of the T line being discontinued. CZ also makes aluminum framed pistols but they are in the compact line, not full size. The P-01 and PCR are aluminum frames. Correct on the CZ compact aluminum frames. My point was...

Re: Love and hate, life with a Tristar

Well you have proved that you like the design. If you need to replace it, save up and get a CZ. You already know you will like it and, CZ and their metal framed pistols are not likely to be removed from the catalog any time soon.
