    I have irons on all weapons but would change that if I were younger. I do have this point to make. From my chair at the lgs I see guys of varying ability installing mediocre dots on HK's, Glocks, and...

    Farscott is correct. The round was developed in 1900 according to Frank Barnes and not after WW1 according to Willie. Have any of you seen the many reports in gun literature that the round came about...

    I saw the same thing at my lgs with two Hk pistols. My guess is that the drilling and tapping are done in Germany and the off spec screws made in China.

    The necked down 9mm became known as the 30 Luger which was designed to circumvent certain requirements imposed on Germany after WW1. Other than being flat shooting, it offered no advantages which...

    Beautiful bullets! I'm so pleased to mentor a new caster. NEI molds are aluminum and were highly thought of during years of production. Today you can't buy a new one at any price.

    I have owned and shot several Detective Specials, and mine did not show the extraction issue mentioned by the op.

    When I told my doctor that moving my finger "like this" hurts, he said then don't move it "like that". When I told the warranty clerk that my firing pin sparks when I dry fire my revolver, he told me...

    My experience has been that tinkering with J frames can make them unreliable. Reducing friction with judicious polishing for me has always produced good results. I assert that Flitz and gentle elbow...

    S&W and FN gave me more pistol duds than any other brand besides Kel Tec. However, my two Shields are reliable, and I have not owned one of the recent M&P's but hear that they work. I would not buy...

    Nothing wrong with that group! You have a beautiful revolver that represents the best of our technology. My opinion is that it outclasses today's S&W's. I wish that I had a pair.

    3rd generation single stack S&W 9mm, Beretta 92, CZ PCR, Shield, and CZ P-07 with J frames and 1911's interspersed. My jobs did not permit being armed. I have owned many Glocks but was never...

    Likewise, I too hope that the round succeeds but don't understand how it can. Not needing to rehash comments already made, I suspect it would cause excess wear on smaller frame pistols. I think...

    I would have said that the bullet would lack enough momentum to penetrate to published depth after expanding to .53.
    In the event expansion failed to occur, the tiny bullet would be a needle passing...

    Within reason OAL's are nominal meaning they are not biblical dictates. CZ's have the shortest throats that I know of. Once you stray from round nose bullets and 115-125 gr bullets, bullet shape and...

    I thought there was an ammo shortage. If the new pistol becomes popular, will Federal reduce production of sure sellers to crank out a new round? My lgs sells a few S&W pistols, but the brand does...
