    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.

    Did Apex recommend a fix? And am I reading correctly that you went back to stock? I had similar malfunctions with a 2013 G17 Gen3 with the Apex FRE and 30274, but haven't had time to mess with it...
  5. 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.

    Picatinny loves to hype their own programs. I take their M855A1 propaganda with a very large grain of salt. While I don't doubt it's an improvement over M855, making the tree-huggers happy seems to...
