    Most folks I know, do it as a labor saving device. Most folks will strip, run through with a cleaner, and then relube with an oil bath. No detailed scrubbing involved. A fellow armorer tries to...

    Really? Sig is infamous for not having any institutional memory. Pretty sure Lucas was the lube de jour a couple of years back and guess what Lucas makes:

    I went through armorer's school the week the drop-safe issue made itself known. I'm hoping to recert this summer and get the updates for the added parts.

    I have not handled all of the brands you listed but, from what I've seen, the "small" offerings from Sig are legitimately small. I'm not aware of a double stack frame that is going to be smaller...

    I am aware that the P320 & M17/18 cause a lot of heartburn to forum members. However, for an agency the design has certain compelling features.

    Not only do you not have to pull the trigger to...

    And if there was ever a jury pool likely to side with the government, I'd think it would be a jury made up of all military members asked to decide a "war crime" that would make them all look bad.

    I refer to this as the 3 opponents problem. There are three kinds of adversaries we need to worry about:

    1) Some just want to see your gun. They weren't looking for a fight and as soon as a...

    I just did Dave's excellent Combative Pistol class and his A-zone is a 9" tall and 6" wide. It is an all or nothing arrangement with hits to the boxing counting full value and any thing out of it,...

    I only took one class from Pat but I recall hearing the gist of that story. I thought he had shot the gun 11 times but the DA tried to prosecute him for it. The DA died (90% sure) or was forced...

    Sig made a very small number of 5" slides with fixed sights. I've seen the number as 50 or 75. These slides did have the external extractor which can be problematic.

    Interesting data point from my guy who bought the Wilson. After two or three days of open, uniform carry, he had to go after the rear stipling with a piece of sandpaper and tone it down. It did not...

    I’ve handled but not shot the manual safety P320 and did my best to commune with the safety. I found it exceptionally well executed. I’ve thought more than once about it’s value on a duty gun and if...

    I too was curious about the infused grip module not being suited for duty use. From the Legion reviews I've seen, they consistently report a drop in trigger pull weight. I wonder if the Legion...

    Besides "Sig" versus "Sig Sauer" the easiest way to distinguish between the Gen 1 base plates and the Gen 2 base plates is the round versus rectangular takedown hole. The older mags use a round cut...

    One of my guy's ordered one and it arrived today. Overall, I'm impressed with the value the module offers compared to buying a standard module and paying to have it stippled.

    Sigs rusting isn't exactly news. The classic series rusted in all the same places. It's been the wisdom for years that if you wanted rust proof, you bought a Glock. As an alternative data point, I...
