    I am seeing about 140 to 150fps increase when going from a Glock 19 to one of my PSA AR 9s with 16" barrels. This is using my handloads using Alliant Sport Pistol and a 147gr grooveless coated cast...

    My wife and I have four 42's. The one that I carry has about 3500 or maybe over 4000 rounds thru it. This one was test fired by Glock in March of 2014 and has the older slide stop lever. I filed it...

    Screws tend to loosen, particularly on the ejector rod housing. I use some blue Loctite on all of them as well as the rear sight pin.

    I don't know for sure. Charter Arms now nitride treats some of their revolvers. A number of parts can't be treated such as springs and the trigger. The springs won't withstand the heat and the sear...

    Those are some very warm loads. It is amazing that the Buffalo Bore load generates that velocity out of a 3 3/4" barrel :D I think I remember Jeff Quinn shooting some out of a Bisley in his video...

    I just spoke to the guy who worked on my Bisley. He mentioned small areas can become to brittle and chip, so maybe safer not exposing the threads on the barrel and frame.

    Very nice. What is the cylinder loaded with? That looks like a nice load, about as long an OAL that will work and a very WFN.

    Olong,

    Not sure if they pulled the barrel. I may give them a call when I have a moment and find out. Yes, I have had the same understanding regarding stainless that if it is not done correctly it...

    The only issue I have had with Brown Bear, or other cheap Russian ammo, is the occasional hard primer. Usually fires on the second strike. Maybe that could be good tap, rack, & fire training for you?...

    Ha! Yes, I knew your opinion regarding pcc's. I've been of the opinion that any of the good 9mm loads on your list would be driven too fast out of a 16" barrel. Maybe the Gold Dot's would hold...

    That is one of the things that would concern me regarding a PCC, would an expanding bullet work well at the higher velocities? Or, would a non-expanding bullet work better.

    Can you tell us further...
