    I'm seriously thinking it might have been intentional, perhaps with the idea of being able to download the magazine tube without having to reach into the loading port to manipulate the shell stop. ...

    I was messing with an idea over the weekend as well, but didn't want to jinx myself by posting too early.

    Basically, what I did was to reverse the paddle, then add an "overtravel stop" to the...

  7. Army, Marines face new pressure to use same ammunition

    Perhaps, perhaps not. Most of our existing small arms ranges were built to the old "cone shaped" SDZs, and many don't actually meet current standards. Installation commanders sign a ton of waivers...

    Considering that in this thread touched on three very different categories (dots, comps, and even carbine handguards), If shouldn't be surprising that there were varied answers.

    G19 with RMR06 and KKM compensator

    In reference to Runcible's questions, which I forgot to quote:

    IIRC, Comp M2's (M68's)were fielded in significant numbers starting in about 1997-98. They worked extremely well, except that the...

    Forward movement of the bullet(s) in the unfired cylinders, caused by the inertia of the bullet overcoming the crimp/neck tension under recoil. Usually seen in lightweight revolvers with hot loads.

  15. Beretta 92 FS Compact (and general Beretta love lately)

    I'm guessing that if GJM knows, he wouldn't be able to say. But I've heard that Bill Wilson likes 92 compacts, and we know he likes dovetailed sights, so I'm hopeful that WC will influence Beretta...

    Since Colt 6720's can be had for $799, and the stripped 6920 OEMs are starting to trickle out into the market for $670-ish, I'd have a tough time justifying putting much money towards a Mini-14. I...

    I've periodically run a 96G top end on an old 92, and while I probably won't ever put enough .40 through it to really prove anything, I've used a 14# recoil spring, and a stock "F" mainspring (vs the...

    FWIW, I have 5 Glocks in NY1/- configuration. None require touching the trigger to chamber a round. Something is definitely wrong. I'd stop using that gun until it's fixed.
