I usually get the 3rd gen Pmags with windows, for my SCAR. They cost a little more than $9 each.
I got mine on sale at Ft. Worth Gun when i was working in Dallas a couple of years ago.
They had a 10mag limit - I had to go several times.

on a related 1911 note,
I was thinking about getting NS on my Springfield 1911a1 and I am wondering if it would be better to get the front of the slide dovetailed or fit and stake a front night sight?
I have read that the Springfield's are a non-standard size.

I had a Springfield Mil Spec (stainless) in the 1990s. 1st 1911 I owned.

I had a local smith order the night sights aned put them on - but I stayed with the non dovetailed front sight. They do make them for that Gi and Milspec slide. I don't know which ones to order personally, though. I used to - but I haven't owned a Springer in many years.

The trijicon rear sight that goes on it looks almost like a Beretta night sight. But, it's cheaper than getting the slide cut for the Novak dovetails.

Yes, you will print and that leg will be heavier. I pocket carried my shield for 3.5 years. I just used a pocket holster. But anything of weight in the pocket is not invisible.

Of course - it could be anything in your pocket. I don't even worry about it.

I pocket carry my P2000sk sometimes. The Shield in the pocket holster was as fat as the P2000sk is. With the 11.5lb DA 1st shot trigger - I just drop it in my pocket. I don't worry about a holster. The trigger is heavy enough, and I have nothing else in the pocket with it

Toyota killing its Scion brand

Toyota is committing corporate filicide.

The automaker has announced that it is killing its youth-oriented Scion brand and transitioning the models currently sold by the division to Toyota in August.

Yes, I remember your past pics. I like at least 6 mags per gun - and have  alot of Beretta mags. But, you still beat me.

I only have 16 AR mags,but I have 2 guns that use them.

That is what I heard - the generic 10mm is not loaded to potential. You need to reload yourself if you want the good stuff, or pay a bunch of cash...

Well, at least you can soon buy an American AK4.7  :th_thicon_lol:

Yes, that is annoying. I've had a couple of ridiculous issues happen to me lately.

And, when something DOES arrive at the post office, they make me wait ANOTHER day before they put it in my PO Box... On a regular basis...

I hope you eventually get it

Sold an extra grip for a M9A3 I managed to get awhile back. Used the $ for an Urban ERT sling for my Rock River AR

I usually buy the D springs from Brownells. Olhasso once sold an "equivalent" that really wasn't - several years ago. Now, he lists them as factory springs, but I still prefer to buy from Brownells after that incident I had with that years ago. Brownells is also the factory source of Beretta parts as of a few years ago.

Just search for "beretta 92 D spring" on Brownells. It is like $6 and something...

The Wilson 16# hammer spring is supposed to be the equivalent to a D spring. I just prefer to keep with a factory part after that Olhasso incident.

As for an extra power firing spring.. There is no reason to take the slide apart on a 92 unless you are having a problem. I would not mess with that.
