    Just don't pop an ammonia nitrate pill when taking the above and don't overlook risk for priapism.

    My early Sig's stamped with other brand names had heel releases as did my P-38's. Always I have preferred them. I have had a couple custom holsters dump 1911 mags.

    Many know that 9mm pistol barrels often have a .357 or 358 bore diameter, but jacketed bullets have a .355 nominal diameter. I think that engineers selected bullets with larger groove diameters to...

    I too am interested in one of these. On a plinker the mag disconnect should not matter. You might have a lemon or find the pistol not to your liking and suggest not altering it too soon. If sent back...

    My gunsmith removed dimples from a magazine tube by drilling through them. I observed that without using a drill press this method appeared awkward because the drill tended to "wander" on the tube's...

    I wanted to add this. The 38 Short case has the same capacity as the 9mm Luger case, and essentially it's a rimmed 9mm. Chopping off .38 Spl cases easily produces these. One can use 9mm data. I never...

    I agree. I still have a few 100 once fired cases from my original experiment. They have very thick walls. When I find them, I will happily donate these so you can experiment. My health is such that I...

    [QUOTE=jws;1294003]I would be curious to know if there is a way to increase the bullet diameter to get it up to size. Being that it is only a couple thousandths, would it be possible to squish the...

    In 1970 I did what you are attempting using a different jhp .355 9mm bullet in .38 Spl cases. Pressure will bump up the .355 bullet. I used a 9mm size die to reduce case mouth to provide neck tension...

    The op might look at Wolff gun springs for J frames. I too was once a spring changer and urge others to add a safety margin when playing with mainsprings. I think the goal should be smoothness and...

    That is an excellent point which also shows the rapid changes taking place within "our industry". I grew up with 870's but learned the nitty gritty on them when I rubbed shoulders with Rem factory...

    A significant negative to buying a shotgun made in Turkey is parts unavailability. An importer's staff might be an old lady in an office with a computer, phone, and a few file cabinets. Across town...

    My lgs has these. The Utility also has choke tubes. I have disassembled two. Workmanship is excellent. The gun is heavier than an 870 or 590. I bought the Stoeger 3000 because I got an as new one...

    I have examined four of their lower tier O/U shotguns in 20 and 12 gauge. Machining was precise. I could find no fault with the way these were put together. The factory rep and I examined one of...

    One reason I have decided ahead of time to retreat if I can is this: I fear any involvement with the criminal justice system. Further, I have spent much time interacting with people who had nothing...

    I don't have a recommendation but can perhaps explain the excess residue. Sometimes lighter weight bullets do not permit as complete combustion of the powder charge as would heavier bullets. Often we...

    Ya'll describe traffic that would drive me nuts, which by the way would be a short trip. All jokes aside, troopers must deal with these assholes and hear their whining.

    In 1983 Reagan's Interior Secretary defended a commission that he put together by saying he had a woman, two blacks, a Jew, and a cripple. Maybe Marvel should hire him or his ghost.
