I bought a Nelson kit a few years ago, but it had a chamber that Larry and Kevin decided was too tight. They replaced it, and since then, the gun has been working flawlessly.

I bought my 41 from a friend in the 70's. Awesome gun. I wanted a rail, so I bought a Clark Barrel for it. Personally, I have no interest in the new versions. I guess I'm stuck in the past.

I do plan to try this. As far as I can tell, it's "obvious" and "intuitive". So much for the concept of trigger finger off trigger until you're ready to shoot. If this is true, why does everyone...

Feels like longer trigger pull only on first round

Is there any logical reason why, when I put in a magazine with five rounds, it feels like it takes a longer trigger pull to fire the first round than the remaining four?

How to rack the slide on a High Standard Pistol

In 2015 I bought this gun (but it used to have an ancient TASCO sight on top). It was fun to shoot, but it was almost impossible for me to rack the slide. No place to grip it hard enough, and I...

Yesterday, someone at my range offered to sell me a 22 Short Conversion Kit for $300. I need to verify it will work on one of my guns, perhaps my 103 Sharpshooter.
