    Todd's mod was light firing pin block spring, heavy trigger return spring, and the non-LEM P30 mainspring.

    I've got a 3" model 10 that I've been thinking of sending to him to rework the sights, get rid of the ribs on the trigger, convert to a round butt, and re-blue. He does excellent work.

    I've not broken one down, but I suspect that important bits like shell stops are missing, the bolt is different, and I'm not sure that you can replace the trigger group with a standard trigger group...

    If you aren't desperate, I'd skip it.

    I don't see the magazines being reliable in the long term. And just searching right now I can only find one place that has the 3 round magazines in stock....

    I don't know if it will ever come to market, but I had the chance to use a Marlin 1894 in .44 Magnum with a prototype Aridus CROM and it was a splendid little package. Lightweight, handy, easy to...

    Nope.

    Just the consequences of dropping a partially loaded Wilson 9mm 1911 magazine. When it hit the ground there was enough physics going on to take the spring tension off the top round in the...

    I had similar problems thanks to the bad batch of ejector springs, although the frequency wasn't as high on my gun.

    Assuming you aren't using a recoil spring setup in the gun that it didn't come...

    That's kind of where I ended up as well.

    My Wilson CQB is a good gun, but the magazines were treacherous as all hell. Everything would be fine and then I'd need to do a reload during a...

    When I see someone griping about using a timer, I'm inclined to think that they don't really understand what the tool is for. It's like someone telling me that this crescent wrench doesn't drive...

    Other things:

    A good draw is not made on the range with live ammo. It's made through deliberate, careful dryfire practice. A good coach can give you pointers on the range, but you have to burn...

    With a DA/SA gun, you are always going to need more discipline when firing that first shot. Even with a very nice DA trigger like the one you can get on a Langdon Beretta, you will need extra care on...

    For clarity, I'm talking about the J frames with wadcutters. Once you get up to 3" the .38 rounds with JHP start to perform.

    Performance of .357 magnum out of snubs is better, but the recoil is...
