    It sounds more like a QC/component supplier problem than a design defect. EZ's have been around for a couple of years now. I chalk the current issue up to the gun panic's massive demand leading to...

    Chopping a G19 to 26 grip length is something I've been considering having done as a "worst case" ban scenario. I assume that the difference in spring pressure of a 10 round G26 magazine pushing up...

    Point taken, that is smaller than I thought. At the very least it wouldnít hurt to replace the spring at the same time as a RSA. At the moment my only Glock is a Gen 4 19, but I am considering...

    What concerns you about the Gen 5 trigger return spring change? I figure itís pretty well tested from the FBI trials and Phase I of the MHS trials, plus the M/Gen 5 series having seen several years...

    What counts as the trigger actually "degrading"? Most Glocks I've shot for several thousand rounds have a change in the way the trigger feels. I always attributed it to the contact parts just wearing...

    That's more or less what his gun control plan page states. What I don't understand is, what would this entail? The import of "assault weapons" has already been banned since the '89 Bush ban by...

    Maybe. I'll be the first to admit that I'm no expert in the mechanics of revolvers. There's definitely something going on, though.

    Weíre shipping it back to Ruger, as we do with any firearm we receive that we find to have defects. There have been a lot more than usual in 2020, pretty much across the board except for Glocks and...

    We actually got a 4" stainless GP100 into the shop today. I was about set on purchasing it until I got to mess with it a bit and discovered that sometimes the transfer bar wouldn't move into position...

    Sorry to hear. Question: Were the Short Barrel Gold Dots the .38 Special variety or the .357 Magnum variety? Care to elaborate on the results? If not that's understandable.

    Seems like the best gunsmiths either arenít taking in GP100s for work or are cutting down their workload. Is sending a new GP100 off to a gunsmith the first thing I should do with a potential carry...

    Who is a well-respected and proven gunsmith who works on GP100s to make sure they're duty/carry ready? I'm familiar with Grant Cunningham, but he has retired. Keep in mind I'm talking about someone...

    Thanks to @kitchen's mil for this in the other thread about 3" revolvers. I've been doing some research on this and it seems the USBP test revolvers were required to go 10k rounds of .357 Magnum with...

    I have a Winchester Super X3 I use for hunting, but it's hardly suitable for defensive long gun use. It's also disappointingly unreliable, even with full power loads. I suppose it comes down to a...

    The 686+ has been out for a while and I could get that in prelock. Does the 686+ have any problems going from 6 to 7 rounds like the GP100 did?

    So it sounds like the Ruger GP100 is the way to go, probably the Match Champion. I would think the MC has had a little more hand fitting or better QC, possibly. Aren't the internals polished?

    See, I love the idea of the new Model 19 and 66 because it sounds like they donít have the durability problems of old production ones. The only thing I canít get past is the lock.

    Those are both two good points for and against removing the lock. The "safest" option in regard to Smiths might be to get a prelock Smith as Hambo suggested. I certainly ogle at those older prelock...

    That's a shame to hear, but oh well. So it sounds like if I wanted a .45 Ruger revolver I'd need to get a Super Redhawk (maybe Alaskan?) in .454/.45 Colt and have it cut for moonclips to shoot .45...
