Re: First Pistol, Glock 17K

.. All the benefits of the long slide and all the benefits of the compact frame- with none of the compromises (besides magazine capacity). I have since added an Ameriglo .125" Tritium front sight as well, steel sights are coming soon. Even magazine capacity isn't really lost, since you can always a...

I just got one of these: Unissued Glock 22 gen 4, with night sights & 3 mags, $450. I can confirm they're pristine: http://www.summitgunbroker.com/22_Gen_4.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Or if you want to go a little more cost-effective, a Gen 2 Glock 22, 3 mags. $319 http://www...

Re: Thinking about my First Revolver...

... Unless your gun is for CC, go ahead and get at least a 4" barrel, you'll have an accurate handgun that will be a joy to shoot. For CC, I can understand getting a snubbie in a smaller frame. (Ruger SP 101 2.25" or 3" is what I want) A while back my LGS had a used SP101 3" that had gotten a ROBAR...

Re: Thinking about my First Revolver...

I do intend on replacing it with a S&W down the road. I'm really looking for input on these two revolvers. If you intend in replacing it with a S&W "down the road" just keep saving and buy the S&W. This. A decent .357 with a 4 or 5 inch bbl is the most versatile handgun you can get, and you'll neve...

Re: GLOCK .40 Brass bulges after shooting

How big a deal it is depends on who you ask. I've been shooting Glock .40's 20 years, and never had a KB or seen one, or personally known anyone who had one. Others swear it's a fatal flaw and will only use a Glock in 9mm. The case *is* less supported than some other designs, and some folks report t...

Re: Looking to purchase a .40

If you know you want DA/SA, I'd second Mark's used P226's at summitgunbroker. I got a "used" P226 with night sights that was never issued... Unfired, still had the wrapper on the extra mag, and close to half-price. At worst you'll get something with some holster wear, carried much and shot little. M...

You can use bleach in "normal" quantities, but just shouldn't over-do it for the sake of the bacteria. We CD'ed also, and used the cheap white vinegar and "earth-friendly" detergents.

Re: Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle

No. A big part of the Cooper's spin on the scout rifle concept was based on the fact of having modern polymer stocks and lighter steel alloys that could significantly reduce the weight of a rifle with the described capability. Cooper believed in the late seventies and early 80s that a new rifle con...

Re: Ruger Gunsite Scout Rifle

As far as I know, no production rifle has ever fulfilled EVERY aspect of Coopers concept. Even the oft mentioned Steyr (as already stated in the above post) weighs in at the maximum (3.3kg) WITHOUT a scope, so that's probably another .5kg give or take. You hear/read different things but my understa...

Well, I like my Glocks, but I'll be the first to admit they're at their best after a little work- A trigger job, a couple different controls, a heavier spring in anything caliber larger than 9mm- Nothing major, but they like a little tuning out of the box. It's a "lowest common denominator" gun stra...

Uh... Isn't your crossbreed tuckable? If it's the IWB crossbreed that fits a P229, it's called a "supertuck" in fact. If it's not, you might just have the wrong belt clips.

As far as whoever put together Daniel Horner's rifle, the AMU has their own armorers.

They had also tinkered ar...
