    I'm pretty sure current production 1894 models have ballard rifling. Marlin stopped making the 1894 with micro groove rifling back in say 2005-2006 or so.

    I don't know how well the pistol caliber...

    Much better. But I thought you were looking for a set of wood stocks?

    I've always liked dogs and have owned several -- mostly rescues. My current living situation isn't a good match for dog ownership -- maybe someday again though.

    I do still enjoy playing with...

    I went through a similar process during my search for a practical rifle a couple years back. My criteria were similar, though slightly different. The only modification I ended up making to my rifle...

    I was hoping Yellowstone would be really good, but even though the scenery is terrific the scripts are just so painfully bad. Costner does a decent job in his role but he can't save the writing.

    Damn, just seeing this. Thanks for all you've done Tom_Jones -- you will be missed. Good luck in all you do.

    I noticed one such dealer has several "blem" Colts -- not just SCGs. Some seem to be bargains, others not so much. I see a lot of SCGs on GB around $1800 or so. A "blem" SCG at $1500 would get you...

    I dislocated both of my shoulders, the left one twice, when I was younger but I was able to train in a martial art for over 25 years after that without too much trouble. There was one incident in...

    That's a good price, though the ones with aluminum base pads that I typically buy aren't on sale. I think I have 13 of them, and I could use a few more. I'd like a few more of the 9-round 920...

    I've only done the following:
    Stoned the sear interface surface on the thumb safety lug (I always do this with Colts)

    My carry gun is a Colt Lightweight Commander 9mm, so obviously I have faith in the gun. I've put more than enough rounds through it to make sure it is reliable with the mags and ammo I use.

    That's usually a pretty easy thing to fix if one is so inclined. On Colts it's typically the sear interface lug that needs some attention, on other makes it's often the surface that meets the end of...

    No experience with that specific pistol, but the Vigil appears to be a lot of gun for the money relatively speaking. Lightweight alloy frame and rounded butt could make it a good choice for carry. ...

    In my 45s I like Colt's dual spring setup.

    In my 9mm guns I like Wilson Combat chrome silicon springs.

    But... they're just springs. I could just as easily buy all my recoil springs from Colt...

    Yes. Easiest first.

    Colt somewhat over-springs their 9mm pistols. If you haven't already, try a 12 or 13# recoil spring in your Commander and see if that helps. It might or might not. For a...

    Quite a contrast -- I trained in Okinawan Goju for almost 30 years. There is definitely a big difference between the Japanese version which is more sport oriented and the Okinawan...

    Another option might be a used or new old stock Remington AAC Micro 7 300 BLK. I have one with an Omega 30 suppressor and LPV sight mounted and it's a nice shooter.

    CZ makes a 300 BLK carbine...

    In my experience, Colt's 45s are generally more accurate shooters than their 9mm guns. But that doesn't mean the 9mm guns won't shoot. It might be more due to what you are used to, or that you just...

    We live in a blue county, probably not as many people packing here as in some locales. That will be changing soon, we are moving. :)
