My standard warning on the red plastic Tiptons: I've had the rim separate completely on ejection and leave the rest of the little bugger sitting there in the chamber. This was on a SAKO Finnfire with...

A friend in the used musical instrument business told me that his rule of thumb was to buy for 50% of what he thought he could get for it. I would imagine it's similar with firearms, as with most...

Maybe they're not thinking fighter planes and combat duty -- just milk runs, etc.? I would hope they would have that much sense, but that might be a false hope.

It could be just a PC CYA move, one...

I've got one that I've never shot! Don't ask me why -- too many other guns to shoot right now, and it needs a thorough degreasing. It arrived from CMP encased in goo.

Any good semi-auto pistol with a rail, but aside the questionable cycling, does anybody else think .22 shotshells are a really bad idea for fisher cats and coyotes? All that's going to do is piss...

Right -- but the mod has to be done before the FFL can transfer the pistol to me. In other words, I have to find an FFL who is willing to do that work. The problem is that the only trustworthy...

Rest in peace, Denny. You were a true gentleman. I remember parts that I ordered from him arriving at my house two days after I put the check in the mail. He was a trusting soul.

My flipped Buck Mark weighs in at 2 and change. I'd say 3 is in the ballpark. As has been mentioned, try a trigger with an overtravel adjustment screw.

I did. My first post in this thread was about financing a wristwatch, meaning taking out a loan to get one. It boggles my mind that people will do this, but they do.
