Hmmmm, last thing I bought (and took home) was some 62gr 5.56. 

Last thing I paid for (but waiting on) are holsters from FirearmHolster.com   :rocknroll2:

Well the Sig was the last item purchased.

Late last night I came home with an HD webcam to drive the electronic dry fire range.  Saturday's trip to GRB scored me a couple Desert Tan Troy Battlemags and a Desert Tan Surefire KM3.  The KM3 dual white/IR illuminator was the actual show objective and it will round out a Homebrew Digital NV project I have going.

A side benefit of the Digi NV project is gonna be a wireless Target cam which will let me see&record shooting performance in real time (I'll be able to use a wired b&w cam at ranges like hotwells 'cause I popped for a monster telephoto as well). I'm in project mode.

I've been casually shopping for a brown leather gun belt for nearly a year. Athena has some very stout belts right now - hadta bring one home. They're spendy, but given the number of belts I've passed on in the last year 'cause they rolled in my hand, I figure I got a good deal. Prolly the last gun belt I'll ever have to buy.

Well, I have 12 PS90 mags. Considering I usually don't shoot rifles much after I get over the new factor, that's enough. Pmags are also cheaper.
Title: Re: What was the last gun RELATED item you bought?
Post by: dred on July 24, 2013, 02:30:05 PM
Hoot. Buying 556 mags is fast becoming a problem. Current inventory is 5 IWI windowed 30s (US made CAAs), 5 translucent Sinclair 20s, 2 gen2 Pmag 30s and 2 Troy 30s. All but the Troys are loaded up - haven't taken them out of the wrappers.

Picked up 90 rounds Lake City XM855 and some cleaning patches today.  Ordered a Garret Silent Thunder STX for OWB carry this morning.

I just don't understand this. I just bought the PSA lower parts kit with the 10 mags and it came in. That puts me at 12 magazines. I'm considering selling off 6 of them because I can't see a situation where I'm going to need more than 6 magazines. If I have to fire 180 bullets at something, either I'm doing something really wrong or I'm probably about to meet my maker anyway.

Thoughts?

better to have and not need...

If the EOTWAWKI comes and you only have 6 30 round mags and have to relocate, that ain't going to last long.

My problem is mostly the price point. The Troys for example got grabbed at GRB 'cause 1) they are FDE and 2) they were $10 each. I bought the 20s 'cause I prefer shooting with 20s. The Tavor came with 1 FDE IWI mag plus 2 surprise pmags (black) and I ordered 4 FDE IWIs 'cause 5 is a good number.

My overall plan is to eventually have the various mags loaded with the various rounds I shoot. E.g. Green Tips in the Troys, 77g in the 20 round mags and 55g plinker in the IWI mags. I will probably reserve the Pmags for 300 AAC - I have a couple 80% lowers that should be here next week and 1 will be a Blackout build.

Finally, I customized a Pelican which is carrying the Tavor plus 12 of the mags. I look forward to range trips that don't include mag stuffing after I finally settle on my loads.
Title: Re: What was the last gun RELATED item you bought?
Post by: Shipwreck on July 24, 2013, 02:49:56 PM
Yes - I will not have to buy anymore mags. I like to have at least 6 per gun for handguns, and 10-12 per rifle. The exception is for 22s. I have two for my Buckmark pistol, and two for my 15-22 carbine. I will probably leave it at that, as I don't shoot 22s much.

But, I like to have extra rifle mags. They are polymer. Should one break or something happen - having extras is a good idea. Better to have it and not need it, as someone else said.

Post by: Shipwreck on July 24, 2013, 03:49:35 PM
30 round AUG mags are $30 from CDNN and 42 rounders are $40. That's the cheapest price around. Even with the sales tax (since they are in TX), they are cheaper than anyone else. Still adds up quick.

I will have ten 30 rounders and two 42 rounders. I prefer the 30 rounders... As the 42 rounders stick out so far that it makes shooting off a rest too hard. Plus, I still remember the MSAR AUG I once had. I had issues with the 42 rounders, but the gun worked fine with 30 rounders. FOund out on a recent post that thi swas because of weak mag springs in the 42 rounders..

However, after that experience... I just prefer the 30 rounders, despite these being the real deal - made by Steyr. The 30 rounders are cheaper, so it's been easier to get to 12 mags this way too...

I have never looked around at my 15 Pmags, 10 92FS mags, 10 Px4 mags, and my 5 1911 mags and thought to myself "Self, there is just no point in having that many mags."  I HAVE looked at my 3 Pmags, 3 92FS mags, and 3 Px4 mags and thought to myself, "Self, I think I need some more mags."  Until I reach the point that I think it's crazy to have X number, I'll keep buying them when I come across them at a good price. (precrazy stupid prices that is).   Doesn't matter if they are Pmags, Beretta mags, 1911 mags, whatever.

$99 well spent!

I visited Spring Guns and Ammo last night and had a blast in Chuck Persinger's Tactical Training Class.  If you can come up with 3 hours and 150 rounds - DO THE CLASS!

http://www.springgunsandammo.com/index.php/training (http://www.springgunsandammo.com/index.php/training)

Chuck was assisted by two very, very helpful instructors.  Their demeanor was absolutely perfect and they had as much fun as the students.  They presented a perfect balance of stress and encouragement.  Signing up for the next class is a no brainer.

Mes ... no way I'm gonna round up and count 1911 mags.  But, I do know my speed loader count - I got two  :P.

A-ha!  Also when eyeballing grips in the packaging remember that the screws are in different places on the left and right grips!!!!    :facepalm:  :facepalm:

When I looked at the grips this morning I compared the new left grip with the right side of the gun and proclaimed that the holes weren't even close.  Wailing and despair were quick to follow, surely my genuine Beretta grips were some kind of knock off!!!

I actually took the grips out of the packaging and they fit perfectly!!!

I've never heard of the golden bullets being bad in 10-22's but in .22lr pistols, especially 1911-22's they are generally found wanting.
My GSG 1911-22 hates them.

Nearly 900 rounds of 8mm ammo from a guy I met at the gun range for .30 a round. Said he didn't have a 8mm weapon anymore. Good day at the range!

My Spas-12 had the level safety on it, that was recalled. I found a Law-12 with the safety upgrade so I bought it and did the swap. My intention was to flip the Law-12 and pick up the safety much cheaper than you can buy one for, and increase the value of the Spas.

Now I think I'll hold on to the Law-12 for a while. It's in great shape and doesn't look like it has been shot much at all. The recoil buffer that was in it, looked new with the exception of turning yellow, and they are usually in cracked or disintegrated by now. I ordered a new one and put it in last night.

My birthday was yesterday so I picked up a Glock43 on Friday. Haven't broke it in yet. Maybe a range trip this afternoon or tomorrow.

I took it to Shooting Sports range this afternoon. It ate everything I fed it. The grip angle on Glocks are a little different than my Berettas so I started off hitting high. I usually just bring the gun up naturally and put the front sight on target. With my Berettas that is sufficient. However, because of the grip angle difference I have to actually use the rear sight as well on the Glock. Sweet little pistol.

Ok, it's been nearly 4 hours since I shipped it. I want my damn slide back now  :th_thicon_lol: :th_thicon_lol:

Why can't I just fax it to them, they install the sights, and then fax it back :)

No, that won't work on a Beretta 92. The front sight is built into the slide. It's gotta be drilled

I have a sickness. After I got my latest HK I decided I was done buying stuff for a while. Of course I had to get a several mags, then I had to get the ambi safety, then a couple of holsters, might as well get a couple of flat floor plates for some of the mags. All this stuff trickles in, (minus one holster) Alright I'm done.

Now it has been less than a week and I'm looking for a new gun, that will start the above process all over. Do I need it? Nope. Will I get one anyway? Probably.

Actually, the good news is, I think it does (end).

There are plenty of guns that I would like to have,
as I get older, I have less and less desire to actually buy them.

My wife's father decided to start giving his rifles to the people he was going to will them to.
He likes the idea of knowing that they are getting some use while he is still alive.

I am beginning to have the same thought.

My problem is, some of my coolest rifles might hurt Romo's shoulder,
so I have to figure out who gets them.  :thinker:

I ordered a huge pack of off brand ones for a buddy's build.  They felt the same as my Ergos.

Post by: Shipwreck on August 20, 2015, 08:24:04 AM
Well, I looked a few places and saw the Ergos were around the same price. And yea, I saw that Ergo actually makes them for Magpul.

Thanks for the links, though. They are a bit cheaper there.

As for the off brand, I bought a set from Amazon a year or two back, and they were more plastic than rubbery. And, the finish was kinda scratched up. I only bought them for that 15-22 carbine, so that's good enough. But, I was a little hesitant to get an off brand for this new carbine, because I don't know what they will look like until they come in.

I may make use of that Ebay Ergo link after these come in, because the damn rail is so honkin huge on this new rifle that 4 isn't enough. I'll still need more.

Walmart is having a closeout on all their AR stuff - but the Blackhawk ones (look just like the Ergos) are gone locally. I used to pick up one here and there at Walmart, but that's no longer an option. They were down to like $5, but sold out. I saw the price tag on the shelf. Walmart only had the plastic plates that fit on the rails, and I don't like those.

Poor old Cx4, getting mistreated now.

Yes indeed :p

I still have no optic for it no, since I pulled it to put on the new rifle. I am debating on  buying a $80 Bushnell red dot or primary arms optic (for less than $100) Ė or waiting to get another Mepro 21 for it next year. I looked last night - Mepros with the triangle reticle have gone over $500 most places.

MAKO usually has a black Friday sale, though. Last year, it was 30% off for Black Friday on their website with the special code. If they do that again, a Mepro would be something like $386. I may wait until Nov and see if that happens again

I've used Solarforce lights for weapon lights for many years, though. They are probably the best Surefire clones out there. Had them mounted on many carbines over the years with no issues. So, it's not a bad light :p

Got to try it for the first time this evening.  This thing really made the recoil lighter, and straight back so I was able to stay/get back on target much quicker than the birdcage that came with the rifle originally.  Don't stand to the side though unless you like the blast!

It's from keepshooting.com, it said it was a military surplus item but no mention of it being from WWI. I will try it out hope it works and looks good. If not it's only a $10.00 lost. But then again it could be a $10.00 win!

are you a little sad?

I felt sad when we sent the P232 slide to them.
and even sadder when we had friends drop by at Christmas and all I had to show them was the lonely P232 frame.  :th_thicon_cry:

I am happy now that it is back.

Actually - I'm mad now. $17+ to mail the damn thing. Like $10.95 for shipping, and then another $7 for insurance for $450. It was a tiny box too  :facepalm:

I leave the frame sitting on my pistol rack, and the barrel and guiderod on the side of that. Since it's at the bottom of my safe - at quick glance, it still looks like the gun is still there  :P

I didn't like the all black rear sight wiith the U shaped view area. I tried to make myself like it. SInce the slide already had tritium for the front sight - I only have to get the rear done

Some of us are slow.

In fact, a few years ago i would have told you I thought night sights were a waste of money,
"what can you see in the dark to shoot at?"

What I did not realize is that "night" sights is not really what they are,
they are "see in low light" sights - very nice inside the house.

As I've stated before - I just prefer the bright white circles around the tritium - to just dots in little depressions. They stand out better to me all the time - especially at my indoor range. I shoot better with them because I see them better.

Other than playing around in the house - I really haven't ever made use of the tritium itself. But, I just like em on all my guns. Now, only my PX4 compact has no night sights.

Mitch Rosen OWB holster for my LCRx .38+P 3". Shop Ruger was the only place I could find that had a holster for that particular model. I held off for a while because of the price, 75$, but I wanted to work that pistol into my EDC so I ordered one a couple of weeks ago and received it last Wednesday.
All I can say is money well spent. Nice leather, low profile, pistol fits nice and tight at my 4 o'clock, rides a little high with a forward cant, but not to high, on a 1" belt and is easily covered by a light jacket or shirt tail. With pistol it weighs 20 oz's. Highly recommend.

My most recent purchase was a bit of gunsmith'n. I recently got a Marlin 795 and slapped it into a Badger M22 Bullpup Stock. But now the barrel has been cut back to 16.25" with a Target Crown cut. Since I had a couple .223 muzzle devices gathering dust - 1/2 x 28 threading and front sight relocation were called for as well. I decided to yank the holosight and go with Tech Sights Irons.

Great place for a photo but since Tapa is crapping ... this is a placeholder.

I may eventually get a Wilson guiderod for my 92A1, so I don't have to rely on the captive spring assembly. But, I don't usually make that many changes to the 92.

Hornaday 22 TCM 3 die set
Lee 22 TCM 2 die set
Lee 22 TCM factory crimp die
(yes, there is a reason I bought both brands; there is a sweet spot found by mixing the dies; this cartridge is pruportedly a pain to set up correctly)

brass prep Jig for shopping of 223/556 for either 300 Blackout or 22 TCM

1000 JHP 40gn bullets for 22 TCM

a case trimming attachment for my Lyman brass processing machine - sized for 22 TCM

Thankfully I can load it with powder and primers I already have inventoried.  And, I've got about 500 cases of 22 TCM I've collected plus thousands of 223 cases which can be repurposed.
Also grabbed up two extra single stack 22TCM/9mm mags for the Rock

Spas-12 parts

Enhanced sling mount that replaces the plastic mount that it prone to breaking with a metal one. Installing required drilling out the rivet, but now I can remove the folding stock for that Terminator pistol grip look. I'll need to work out a bit to hold it like Arnold does. (If I'm remembering right, even Arnold has a strap on it, running around his wrist in a couple of shots)

And a scope mount. Not original and my wallet thanked me for that. It was created with factory blanks that the SPAS-12 Project came across. I grabbed one up and they were sold out the next day.
Did I need a scope mount for it? No, but I haven't seen an original for sale in a few years and given how few of these were available I grabbed it anyway.

Burris Fast Fire III quick acquisition red dot and Kel Tec rail for the PMR 30 came in. Assembly was a little more  :bangheadonwall: than I thought it would be. To mount slide directions required that you remove slide which is a process of just removing one pin and something I have done a dozen times. After putting everything on, a ten minute process, I reassembled but found slide would not go forward into battery when pulled to the rear and released. It would go about 3/4 way then stop. Tried a little polishing and lube. Nope, same thing. Broke it all down again and removed scope and rail and returned it to original condition Cycled just like new no problems. :thinker: Ok,this time, I installed everything w/o removing slide. Cycles just fine.
Just to be sure called Kec Tec and informed them of the problem I ran into. Nice person I talked too told me to take to the range and see how it cycles. If there's a problem send it in and we will put some of our voodoo on it and return free of charge. Will get it to the range in the next week or two and see what happens.

More booty from my personal 2016 Buyback:

Interesting to me that I didn't know that Tripp Research Mags is supporting a Texas business that is supplying the BEST Mags I've ever handled.  So, I got a new pair of 45ACP 10 rounders since my CMC 10 rounder has landed in my center console as my off body backup.

Dawson Precision Toolless full length guide rod - intended for the STI Duty One 'cause I wanna make it easier to take down without changing a tack driving detail.

Underwood - 165gr bonded GD 10mm, 180gr bonded GD 10mm, 250gr hardcast 460R

Bear Tooth Bullets - (ordered, but lead time is 8+ months of ridiculous)

VZ Frag 1911 grips in Cherry that should complement the Duty One's Frag type checkering

Pierce finger groove grips to treat the front strap of double stack RIA frame #2

Cantilever mount for Vortex Strike Eagle

Garret Industries STX 2.0 OWB holster

Comp bushing for Tacticool BBQs - ok, truth is I just wanna see if it creates a perceptible reduction in recoil impulse; thinking about having a ramped barrel reamed to 460 Rowland and I'm exploring the feasibility of a setup that would allow me to choose to carry it uncomped.  45ACP fires fine out of a 460R chamber, but a comp is entirely unnecessary for the milder 45ACP impulse

Franklin (Frankford?) Arsenal Hand Universal Deprimer - OMG this thing rocks.  I've got a b'day coming up and since I know someone snag'd the rotary tumbler from my Amazon wish list ... I'm going to need a way to deprime dirty brass so I don't have to risk running the grit through my sizer/deprimer dies.

Smexy?

Just Dred speak for - "looking good."  I haven't proven them at the range, but I'm enough of a geek that I excused myself to the restroom to confirm function as soon as they were fitted for me.  But, when the optometrist asked me what I was hoping for out of glasses, I showed her a weaver stance, extended my finger to front site distance and told her if a bee lands on this finger I want the ablity to accurately count the hairs on its butt.

I spent a lot of time away from the hobby and I can confirm that things I thought were wrote muscle memory resemble muscle-forgot/reference-thinker sloppy today.   I need the ability to control my own focal plane to clean up a lot of slop.  I'm also hoping that this correction is accurate enough that I can assess whether it's time for me to favor shooting long guns wrong handed.  This year shooting right handed has exhausted my right eye quickly.  The correction on my right eye is a lot stronger; maybe I don't need to spend big $ on backwards rifles or accept the speed handicap of shooting leftie with righty controls.

Smexy.

Ordered 4 x - 10mm Auto 180 gr Trophy Bonded JSP Vital-Shok 20/Box.  Yep, they're a little proud of these and I gave a bit north of $1.50/rd when I include shipping.  I did pretty good, IMO, given the number of offerings available on Ammoseek listed north of $2/rd before shipping. 

I also got notified that my Underwood goodies (10mm & 460 Rowland) will land tomorrow.

I'm gonna be busy with the rest and the chrono when my schedule settles a bit.  I am basically getting a variety of full power loads lined up so that I can set realistic and hopefully safe hand loading targets.  I am gonna start fresh with loads since I've added a 16.5" carbine since my last go 'round with 10mm load dev/selection.  The Underwood 460 Rowland will be the first factory rounds I've ever had - I look forward to learning whether I've even been in-the-game.

Well ...

A pair 10mm Metalform flush fits arrived today.  So ... if they prove reliable, I get to put the grips I bought for the Silverback into service.  She's only running the magwell grips 'cause I don't like the look of a 1911 with a magazine hanging out of the grip.

I cruised through Wally's on the way home today.  I left there with 500 rounds of bulk 230gr Federal FMJ and 500 CCI MiniMags to toss on the pile.

And, I ordered a Lee Bench Primer last night.  I'm hoping to sneak up to A&P Armory in Tomball tomorrow.  I'm looking for Longshot, HS-6 and maybe some Lil Gun or Accurate #9.  I'm planning to rework my 10mm and 460 Rowland loads in the near future.

Well, Deb and I took a ride up to A&P Armory in Magnolia.  My first impression is that I will be visiting again.  Turns out, it's also a feed store and we brought home a very promising and relatively inexpensive dog food.  One of our dogs has a severe gluten allergy and another is old - we brought home a bag which is +12lbs at the same price as what we've been feeding.  If it works out, Deb may be asking me to drop by the Armory to grab some dog food  :rocknroll2:.

Anyway, grabbed 1lb of 'Lil Gun, 1lb of Long Shot and 1lb of H110.   I also grabbed 100 rounds of Sig Sauer 180gr 10mm and a Gunshot Trauma First Aide Kit (Tacticool, but once I add Tampons it will have all the bits I want built into my kit).

Cost wise, Boomer isn't that hungry.   Even if you figure $4-5 per round, compared to a boat, swimming pool, airplane, horse, gambling or serious drinking habit, new-car payments, or a big vacation, Boomer is less, even if I could find the time to shoot 1000 rounds a year.

Kydex OWB for my Ruger 9e.

Got it off eBay.  Pretty good ratings.  I like the fact that it has the part of the holster that comes up between the body and slide.  Hope it'll be a good one.

Friends,

In the "fwiw department", I actually went & got the Model 760 in 9.3x62mm this PM at the FFL. = Other than a few minor scratches, this rifle is GREAT.

My THANKS to the forum member, who  PM'd me about it at a pawn shop in a little town in MS. - Incidentally, the pawnbroker also sent me a whole box of Winchester 9.3x62 ammo (42.88 plus tax here in TX) gratis.
(He said, "You might as well have it; nobody here will ever want it.")

Note: We have a herd of really GREAT members "on forum".

I also ordered 200 pieces of 280 grain .368 GCCB bullets from WESTERN BULLET COMPANY, which will be cast/mailed in about 2-3 weeks.

altogether, a GOOD week.

Dom, it just occurred to me that you listed a bolt and a rail as having already purchased but you're looking for a side charging upper.  All of the uppers I have ever seen either charge through the rail or attach directly to the BCG (one being reciprocating and one not).  I guess I haven't kept up with them enough because I don't know of one that doesn't operate like that. 



Well, I googled it and found ONE.  http://www.joeboboutfitters.com/Spartan_Side_Charge_Non_Reciprocating_Billet_Upper_p/jb-non-recip-upper.htm (http://www.joeboboutfitters.com/Spartan_Side_Charge_Non_Reciprocating_Billet_Upper_p/jb-non-recip-upper.htm)  I guess it's come a ways since I last looked into it.

I don't recall any that charge "through the rail", but yeah the ones with the knob attached to the bolt are of no interest due to reciprocating.

Making the switch to Mec-Gar 18rd magazines for the 92.  Bought 6 of them.  Now I have a bunch of 17rd Beretta magazines I'm not sure what to do with.  The Mec-Gar are more "flush fit" and the baseplate is beveled which allows me to strip it from the gun if needed.  I tried it with my 17rd mags....not so much.  Lol.  I guess I may sell them and invest those funds into more Mec-Gars.

I have a few 17 round Mecgars - but I find the gun ejects in different directions as the ammo works its way up the mag. Like the next round up pushes the ejected shell out. So, the ejected cases are not consistently ejecting to the same location when I use the Mecgars.

Also, depending on who you ask, the base plates can break easier if you start dropping them on the concrete.

I personally like the factory 15 rounders the best. I can get +10% mag springs for them anytime I want.

The Meg-Gar 18rd mags survived Dave Spaulding's class.  They got thrown down, stepped on, stripped from the gun, etc.  I didn't notice any ejection issues.  Hell, now that I think about it I know it was consistent because the guy to my right wouldn't quit crying about my brass hitting him in the face, neck, etc.  Lol.  The 15rd mags had the same problem as the 17, IIRC.  There is nowhere to grip them to remove them if needed.  The Mec-Gar is the same size but holds 3 more rounds and the beveled baseplate is a plus, imho.  I will keep an eye on them for cracking though.  I hadn't heard that.

Someone on Ar15.com once posted some info about the mecgar mags vs the Beretta 17 rounders vs Beretta 15 rounders. I don't remember all the details.

Well, maybe yours are broken in. I've only used my few Mecgars a couple of times each. And, I noticed that the ejection was different as the mag itself unloaded thru firing. I thought it was kind of odd. I have 3 or 4 of them, and they all did it. But, it WAS the very FIRST time I used them.

I normally use the factory 15 rounders. I have tons of those

I would highly recommend anyone that owns a Glock to check out AIM's used Glock mags. I received a LE/GOV one today it has the date of manufacturing on it 1994! I bet it's as good as the others. $11.99 not a bad deal.

1x 126mm STI doublestack mag - failed miserably trying to find out if the 2011 mags will run in a Para type frame - I plan to find out later this week.

ETA:  Well ... the feed lip design for 2011 magazines interferes with the Para type doublestack frame.  Their profile is too different.  Guess I gotta start shopping 2011s so my mag doesn't go to waste.

Also 150  JHP  5.56mm cartridges from the SA Gun-show.

Found my VERY NICE quality padded Realtree soft case,  that looks like a "custom fit" for the little police carbine.

My newly purchased Springfield EMP 1911 came with a rebate for four magazines, a dual magazine belt carrier and a retention paddle holster. Paperwork stated 6-8 weeks minimum if redeemed by snail mail but orders would have a faster turn around time if the on line option is used.
On 9/20 I completed the on line form, attached a JPG of the sales receipt and sent it off expecting at least a four week wait. Received this on the 29th. 9 days ain't to bad but I don't care for retention holsters so it will find a place in my little used accessories drawer. Every thing else is good to go.

For the M&P m2.0 9mm:  Israeli designed, cross draw, level 2 retention holster.

From the list ... only the muzzle brake has actually arrived.

Wow thatís a find, not that many M1ís before the war. If I remember correctly the M1 Garand wasnít issued until 1936. Is it leather or canvas? Iím not sure if the M1 was issued with leather slings? Older 1903ís and 1917ís did... Makes me want to look at my M1ís sling to see if it has any markings to identify as WW2.

Armed Texan,

The TRUTH is that the sling may very well be a 1903 or Model of 1917 sling that was of the sort that was issued with the (then) new Garand rifle in early WWII.
I've was told when I was a docent at the MP Museum at Ft. McClellan, AL  (but cannot document from official/period documents) that leather slings were issued "until exhausted".

Note: SAAD, RIA & perhaps other arsenals/depots rebuilt/reissued many Model 1917 rifles for Lend-Lease & issued leather slings of the same kind with the "bound for England" rifles.
It's (nearly illegibly but readable under strong light)  stamped U.S.M.C., which is NOT the US Marine Corps but rather is Union Shoe Machine Company, which makes it LIKELY 1937-41 issue.

I'm pleased to have found it for sure, as  75-80YO leather goods in "as new", unissued  or NOS aren't easy to find at a price that is "affordable", much less for 10.oo.

Yes, I picked up on this site on a Kel Tec forum.  At least one user over there has had multiple successful purchases.  I'm wary of buying from China so be careful:  http://www.laserpointerpro.com/100mw-532nm-green-beam-light-singlepoint-style-handheld-zoomable-waterproof-laser-pointer-p-3176.html (http://www.laserpointerpro.com/100mw-532nm-green-beam-light-singlepoint-style-handheld-zoomable-waterproof-laser-pointer-p-3176.html).

My limited understanding is that lasers greater than 5mw are note salable in the US, but not prohibited to buy or possess.  If you complete a purchase there, you must acknowledge that customs clearance is your problem.

I've bought a lot of cheap vaping gear from China and it takes some time to get here.  The only problem I've had is smashed glass that was poorly packaged when shipped.  I'm working from the perspective of:  if it is what I think they say it is ... it's a bargain.

308nato,

The 1917 "American Enfield" is a great rifle (imo) to be nearly a century old. = I've seen FEW of them that were not "tack-drivers".

Oh yeah! Today was a blessed day! Had fun shooting .308NATOís Ak-47 and M-44. And of course we shot 100 year old weapons, the US model 1917 Eddystone dated 6-18, 3 months shy of its 100 year old birthday and my Lee Enfield No1 Mk3 SMLE also dates 1918! What a beautiful day it was!!!

Got myself an Apex Flat-faced Forward Set Trigger Kit inbound for my new S&W M&P 9mm m2.0.  I held off placing the order till the pistol landed so I could confirm the factory trigger is crap just like the rental trigger.  And, sure enough ... the factory trigger is CRAP.  I'll have her fixed up by this time next week.

I heard that the new 2.0 trigger was better that the original? I guess Iím glad I didnít buy the 2.0 then. Thought about getting the 2.0 shield or the glock 43 for my new pocket carry weapon.

I heard that the new 2.0 trigger was better that the original? I guess Iím glad I didnít buy the 2.0 then. Thought about getting the 2.0 shield or the glock 43 for my new pocket carry weapon.

Well, I just pulled out my trigger pull guage and ... i confirmed my disdain.  Let me explain how a 4lb 6oz trigger can fail to excite me.  It is absolutely light enough.  But, it is NOT consistent - my guage measured everywhere from 3lb 3oz to 4lb 11oz over the 10 pull average I just reported.  That much variability makes it pretty darned difficult for this masher to predict a break.  In the shop before I accepted the pistol I did 5 or 6 pull and resets.  I was only on the third pull when I realized I'd already found the reset in two distinctly different locations.  Yes, the feedback is tactile and audible, but ... on the rental m2.0 I used to evaluate the pistol (45ACP version 'cause that's what Texas Gun Club had with the thumb safety), I managed three (yes, THREE) double fires in 50 rounds fired.  It seems that the ability to break directly off the reset was not part of the M&P design spec.  After that trial, I began looking at CZs.

Everything changed when I chased down @Domineaux and dry fired his competition pistol exactly three times.  His Apex trigger did not suffer from willy nilly reset or maybe-so/maybe-no breaks.  I ordered my M&P at my next opportunity - CZ who?  With a good trigger, the M&P is an exceptional pistol.

Yes, a 4lb trigger that may be a 3lb 3oz or a 4lb 11oz trigger is crap.  I never measured anything in the 5lb range, so it is light.  Everyone on the interweb confirms it's much lighter than the 1.0 version.  I just think these net reviewers are 1911 deprived; clearly, they don't know what they are missing.  There is a reason I waited to weeks to actually shoot the pistol after watching buckets full of reviews.

I don't mag dump.  But, I will do a controlled rapid fire.  If I'm going to double tap or Mozambique Drill - I train to break directly off the reset.  I'm not a fan of the extra trigger finger travel required to fully release and then load back up to the break.  I talked to Doug at Apex yesterday and I was warned that the kit may make the feedback disappear.  That's scary but, the kit comes with heavier carry springs and heavier still duty springs that can be mixed until I get what I want.  I figure no fault of Apex that Smith delivers the pistols with so much variability.  It seems Smith already knows that their civilian customer base has little concept of a decent trigger.

The second issue was the curvature on the factory trigger.  It needed to go.  The factory trigger feels like it is pushing my finger upwards because it wraps around and contacts the bottom as well as the pad of my finger.  It wouldn't be a problem if I had skinny girl fingers, but I have man fingers on man hands, so ...

Yes, I had one before. Softest shooting 45ACP I have ever shot. Less recoil than a 5" steel 1911, and it is an aluminum frame

Sure want to hear a range report on it.

It showed up yesterday and I mounted it on the VR60 this morning. Well, the risers - .5" and .6" to 1"  - that I ordered immediately after mounting will land on the 11th.   It might be gas operated but I ain't pressing the 12g bang switch until I can achieve a sight picture simultaneous to actual, effective shoulder support.

After posting this the mailman delivered the plates for the 26. I have to say, these feel extremely comfortable. I think they will work.

"walnut media" reminds me of how our maintenance people used to clean Turbo Prop aircraft engines.....drive a 3/4t truck up and under the prop/lay an old mattress between truck and prop/start the engine (it would "turn" but the prop wouldn't)/aim hose water into the engine/throw handfuls of crushed Walnut Shells into the engine - walla, clean engine

a replacement combination (rotary) mechanism for my gun safe (and have returned all my pistols to said safe)

and that gave me the opportunity to handle each and every one as I checked them for storage sweat/rust - mentally grading them from most favorite at the same time

not shooting as much as I used to I tend to forget about the "quality" of ones such as my Nighthawk, GI, Ed Brown, Lugers - handling each and every one brings it all back
