    I have to wonder if these pins might deliver some value if using the KE Arms composite lower.
    I have no idea if that would even be necessary or compatible though.

    Early adopters. Go to the range dudes. I've chased the lightweight AR10 for far too long to jump in without more data just yet. I'm curious.

    Mr. Housel responded from retirement. Which was great. The plate was a custom made unit from himself.

    Next question: What version of Aimpoint ACRO plate has the flattest bottom contours?

    Who recognizes this adapter plate brand?

    I have a RMR 02 adapter plate on a P2000 that L&M Precision installed years ago.

    I would like to try an Aimpoint adapter plate on this pistol, if I can identify the brand of plate.

    Sadly, Mr....

    The pistol in question is actually pretty good with JHP designs, but certainly not a "feed anything" 1911. I do recall it would feed the 200gr Speer Flyng Ashtray bullets of that era. These answers...

    Reliable JHP for old Series 70 1911?

    I've a 1973 vintage Series 70 1911 that is in need of some new ammo. I don't want to change the barrel on this particular pistol.

    So... is there a quality JHP round that has a reputation for...

    Personal experiences:

    1) Straight wall cases (.357, .38 for me) require a vigorous and deliberate working of the action for reliable feeding.

    2) 30-30 is much smoother, may recoil more than you...

    As I typed the question, I knew how it sounded. Sadly, I did not choose to change it to DeHavilland, L-20, or U-6. blues has nothing to fear from me in the pun department.
