Mine is a 629-2. I did the polishing and changed the grips. They’re cocobolo wood. Very comfortable.
8-3/8 barrel 44mag of course. I love it. I do get a lot of lead build up in the forcing cone. No way to clean
it with brushes. I shoot 6 jacketed after shooting lead. It helps some but you...
Do I read your post correctly when you say
"Not a lot of options"
I believe there are more triggers available for
the AR platform than any other firearm in the history of mankind.
I would recommend a Geissele piece. They make all kinds of
options for the AR. If your wondering how to pronounce...
I have a Savage 110BA in 300WM with a Nightforce 5-25x56 ATACR SFP with the Nightforce 34mm rings.
Highly recommended! It is the brightest clearest scope I’ve ever looked through.
Rifle is also very nice but very heavy.
The combo with a bipod is 20lbs.
HMMMMM? I’ve been a Christian for 50yrs. Carried a Bible with me all 12yrs of public school.
Never drank, smoked, did drugs, used profanity, etc... I was very popular[sarcasm].
I’ve never once been called a fool for believing a fantasy[sarcasm].
I’ve got a pretty tough skin. I’m glad you...
What ever rifle you get I highly recommend the Nightforce brand of scopes.
I have the first 5-25x56 ATACR SFP they built and it’s an amazing scope!
You would think it has some type of light amplifier in it. It’s incredibly bright.
You will need 34mm rings. Not as many choices. I used the NF...
My wife has the 617. Amazing pistol but huge money. Almost a grand for a 22 target pistol? My wife liked it so we got one. Shes happy and you know what they say about a happy wife? I have a 629-8_3/8 and I find the 617 to be built to the same standards. I think the 617 is way over built. Should...
Welded and recut slide to frame rails? Wouldn't it have been easier to start with a white slide and frame?
I'm assuming the welding was TIG? How tough was it to get a bead inside the slide? I would like to have been looking over the welders shoulder.
Did you gauge the chamber with a go no go gauge? From your photo the chamber looks to be a little scuffed. Your brothers bolt carrier group might have a little more clearance than yours. If yours is a little tighter that could be the problem right there. I would put a gauge on the chamber.
