  1. What did you do to your firearm today.

    This slide returned today from being milled for optic mounting. DSC gunworks did the work. I put it in the mail last Monday, so that's 10 days total door to door. I had it cut for the Dawson Precision Optic system, the same as current production Staccato guns. This allows me to mount the...
  2. What did you do to your firearm today.

    Did you have to fit the disconnector to the hole in the frame? What was the before and after pull weight? Did you tune the spring?
  3. Volquartsen PC Carbine Parts?

    A club member I often practice with has the Volquartsen drop in group and has had to send it back for repairs twice for the trigger not resetting. This is a sample of one, but if it's a large scale issue maybe they stopped selling until they can fix the issue

  5. Affordable 1911s that aren't trash

    Those guys were skilled machinests, a skill that does not exist today like it did then. Today machinests reley on computer aids, which results in consistent hi quality parts, but costs more. So, many 1911 manufacturers turn to MIM parts to meet the price point their customers want. For the...
  6. What did you do to your firearm today.

    It hurts less to buy in pieces.... you already have one piece of the puzzle. The barreled actions are usually in stock at Mile High shooting. Then source the chassis you want from who ever sells it cheapest, or wait for a holiday coupon code deal. Thats how I did it. You wont save much...
  7. Muzzle Device Suggestions

    JP recoil eliminator but only if you hate everyone off to the side of you when firing.

    factory sight or aftermarket?
  9. What did you do to your firearm today.

    pot metal front sight?
  10. What did you do to your firearm today.

    @nstassel Does the Techwell require different bushings?
  11. Caspian or Colt, or both?

    Looks like an early IPSC / USPSA gun. When it started there were no divisions like today, a compensated 45 was the most common gun used until the hi-caps came into the game. It has all the go fast options like adjustable sights, magwell, oversized mag release and slide release, wide thumb...
  12. What did you do to your firearm today.

    I did that once in a class with a 40 in a 45 (with the instructor's permission) because someone said with 100% confidence that the gun would blow up to bits. It didn't, and that guy finally stopped talking.
  13. Glock extractor types

    There is a F*%k ton of this aftermarket stuff out there now. Some of it is made in Taiwan, slides, barrels and small parts. That's what happens.
  14. Glock 22 vs 17 recoil difference?

    The only reason to ever get a pistol chambered in .40 is use in USPSA Limited division major scoring. (until they F with that rule)
  15. 1911 ... gap between hammer and fp

    The length of the hammer strut will determine whether or not the hammer hits the firing pin while still being driven by the main spring, or if it is coasting forward after the main spring has fully uncompressed. If your hammer is not shown in the half cock position, I assume your gun was...
  16. 45 slide damaged need ideas

    What does the disconnector look like?
  17. What you have on a lever action for sights

    I have a Williams receiver mounted peep sight on my Marlin 1894. While it may not be the most 'traditional' looking, it does offer what I think is the best sight picture and great adjustability.
  18. Sig P226 Locked-Up - Can't Field Strip *UPDATE: Barrel Blew Out!

    What is your measured velocity with that load? What press do you use? My quick search shows that as the starting load (depending on bullet) With CFE being somewhat of a slower powder, a slight undercharge would likely still cycle the action, and probably push a bullet partially down the...
  19. AR9 troubleshooting

    Definitely get yourself an AR10 / 308 carbine spring from a reputable manufacturer. You can experiment with lighter buffer, but what you have is pretty much ideal: a bolt and buffer that total about 18-20oz. The only real reason to NOT short stroke is if your magazine springs are weak, but...
  20. Anyone into AR9s - colt or glock? Out of battery fire?

    My PCC load is 130pf in the 8.5" barrel, it's below 120pf in a 5" pistol... And my pcc will run with the same spring/buffer with 100pf steel challenge ammo. If your FTE is only near the end of a mag you may have weak extractor tension and it is relying on the magazine spring pressure tohelp...
