Coyotes and other critters

Loose pets disappear fairly often in rural areas in East Texas. Small pet-most likely coyotes. Large pet-most likely one of your neighbors. No problem with shooting there. Best bet is to have a large...

Airguns

I have gas piston Trail Express which I've watched a friend use to significantly thin the local squirrel population. I can't hit the broad side of a barn with it. Too heavy and never managed to get...

Replacement mags

I got 4 mags for the Challenger II on eBay for reasonable prices. This was between periods of people snatching up guns and ammo so can't say what it's like now.
But eBay is not consistent. You have...

Priceless advice. It does move freely and feels about what I would expect a 22 extractor to feel like in terms of strength. As for the way it's put together, it looks a lot like the one on my Kahrs...

I understood what he was getting at. But your photo tells me how much. Looks like there's still plenty of surface left but the offending corner is gone. Thank you.

Gosh, I don't know what i Was thinking. Why would anyone have a II without a I? And a Medalist? And.... Will likely remedy that problem at some point but I do need to get this gun fixed. I am the one...

Challenger II Feed Issue

1979 Challenger. Back end of rounds fail to rise high enough to slide into the chamber. I first suspected the magazine but I have managed to get 4 old Browning magazines, all pre-Buckmark and all in...

New EDC

Hi,
Kahr PM 9. I have PM 40. Nothing to do with beliefs about stopping power. Just that, for some reason, I shoot 40 better. No clue as to why. I don't usually recommend the PM 40 to people because...

Adhesive to bond brass to Marine Tex

Hi,
Not able to follow what you're doing but I do have experience with marine epoxy. It will bond like a glue to certain surfaces and not to others. However it can still be used. It just has to be...

Thanks for anticipating that one. I will definitely get those springs. The gun has been well cared for outwardly but, not knowing its history, it could have been left cocked for 20 yrs.

Browning Magazines again

Ok, now I've got something to share. The magazine that was in this gun when we bought it was a CII magazine. But it was useless. Undoubtedly the reason the price was so good. Now that I have...

Based on your picture and if I have mine oriented correctly that is where the ejector & ejector spring should be housed. :confused:

Can't tell for sure. It's pretty grainy looking stuff. But I can't dislodge anything with a dental pick. I could probably break some of it loose with a screwdriver but, this is not officially my gun...
