    Those silicone sheets appear to have significant thickness. That's a problem, because the clamp is machined to match the radius of the barrel and mag extension. The silicone would just spread the two...

    Maybe the guy in the photos doesn't have a right thumb anymore, hence the slide stop is of no use to him.



    The "failure to lock back because thumb" is a standard thing for classic Sig...

    That's 6-8 thousandths, if you're measuring paper accurately. Should be enough. You can probably safely shave the scope base a little if it is ever a problem.

    Can't wait to see the new floating, take-down survival rifles for small game harvesting, finally with reliable CF ammo. All the power of .22 WMR at four times the price.

    Seriously, even the PD...

    The problem is, that's not your choice. Pretty much any pistol with a pivoting trigger could in theory have an interlock added. If some government decides that because your product is available and...

    Doesn't Jersey have a law on the books that as soon as a "smart gun" is available for sale, all guns have to be "smart guns" in order to be legal to sell? Anyone familiar with that know whether an...

    I'd hope they'd adjust their attitudes after being worked out properly.

    Figured I'd update. I did put this combination together this year, and it is pretty impressive. Trees are looking good. Hoping they didn't take too much damage in the freeze.

    My first thought was 48 as well. I struggle with the Glock grip angle, because it's different than all my other pistols. Sig, H&K and Beretta are all close enough that they index the same, where I...

    Strangely enough, I've managed to find two items I'd been looking for for a really long time at reasonable prices in the past few months. Hard to find normally, but here they are now.

    Problem: My 1301 would not feed dummy rounds from the tube onto the lifter. It would feed one if you shook the gun to "simulate" recoil, just enough to momentarily stop the brass from bearing against...

    FGMM is the default standard for accurate factory ammo. Basically, if your rifle won't shoot it reasonably well, take it to a smith to figure out what's wrong with it. A reloader skilled at working...

    I've had very little interest in an LS-swapped BMW up to this point. Today, the idea of doing an E46 wagon popped into my stupid monkey brain and I find it quite compelling.

    Stupid monkey brain.

    This caused me to search "O-Connor 7mm rem mag" and found a pretty cool writeup he did in 1972 extolling the virtues of 7x57, and another article on Chuckhawks explaining how 7-08 is actually...

    They say a ghost gun could look like a K frame. I've said plenty of times that a modern S&W revolver is an almost-ready-to-fire firearm kit, but every one I've seen still came with a serial number....

    I'm expecting the 60 V-Max to do well out of my Wylde-chambered ARs when I get around to loading some. The flat base gives it long bearing area to keep it stabilized in the neck while the ogive moves...

    6.5 was still on the shelf at the nearby Academy when all the .30 cal stuff was gone. That was at least six months ago, so you probably can't get anything there today unless you go by the morning...

    It's about 0.8 lb heavier than a Tikka, but that may be OK helping with recoil. NY doesn't have the Rocky Mountains in it. I'd still prefer a Tikka for reasons previously elaborated, but if you have...

    That's ultimately why the Howas went down the road. Needing to redo the bolt stop for each one. Plus, I haven't found a stock that really beds the receiver nicely without inducing excess stress on it...
