I really like that Ruger released the 57, nice to see some competition. It also explains why FN was running a special on the original FiveSeven in December, they must have known Ruger's release was emminent. Already we see Speer has released a new 5.7x28 load, so the companies making ammo in this caliber increased 50%!

The round is a bit long to fit into their existing carbine, I believe. Maybe with their neato magwell that swaps they can make it work with thinner plastic or maybe steel, I guess we will see.

I do wish they decided to get on the 22 TCM bandwagon instead of the 5.7, overall TCM has better ballistics and there is already a carbine made for it. I'd love to see that round catch on more.

Doesn't/didn't RIA make a 1911-alike in .22TCM?

Chimp: You were right. That one place passed, but another bought it for $350. The didn't want the holster or the ammo, so I might have broke even for once.

Glad to hear you were able to sell it, MP.

If I'd have had some spare cash, I'd have made an offer on it, but Christmas kind of depleted my spare cash fund. So I'm unable to make any gun purchases for awhile.

Kind of strange that they didn't want the holster. Most gun shops I've been too usually have a bin or something for used holsters.

I had an interesting time at the range today. I shot my Ruger LC9 and lost my firing pin out the back of the gun twice (out of 2 shots for the day). I think there must be a retaining pin which must have got broken. Since this is my CCW it kinda made my sphincter tighten. I'll be hearing from a gun smith friend for next steps and I might call Ruger.

Lesson: shoot your CCW frequently. Sometimes stuff breaks and you want to know ASAP. Preferably before an incident.

The day was not lost, I got to shoot my other pistol and shoot several pistols belonging to a friend. We intended to do draws from concealment but with my issue, we did HD pistol work with the working pistol and then sighted in some hunting pistols.

Speaking of firing pins, I need to remove the one in my Tokarev, but the retaining pin is like frozen in place. The firing pin and channel are the only places I haven't given a thorough cleaning since I got my Tokarev

I've smacked the hell out of it with a small punch and my gunsmithing hammer, but that thing is not going anywhere. I'm thinking there might be some cosmoline stuck just behind the pin and that's interfering with the removal.

I'll probably have to spray the pin with a little Ballistol and then try to tap it out. All else fails, I pay a visit to my gunsmith friend and see if he can check it out. Might be a good idea anyway since I'm considering having the import safety removed and the resulting holes plugged. Take care of two issues at one time.

Ah, but are you tapping it out from the correct side? You might also try giving it a dunk in a heated ultrasonic cleaner, but if it doesn't come out at that point you risk it rusting. I have a nice commercial grade heated ultrasonic tank that I use for cleaning jewelry and it works very nicely for getting the crud out of my pistols when I want to do a deep cleaning. They're not too expensive on eBay, figure about $100 for a good 6L sized tank, but check the dimensions to be sure it'll work for what you want to clean in it. As for cleaning solution, I mix up a trisodium phosphate (TSP) solution for degreasing guns and it works very well.

Yep. I'm tapping it out from the correct side.

My problem is the pin is really tight in the hole and my guess is some crud is stuck in the channel and causing the issue.

I'm hoping spraying the pin with some Ballistol will clean out the crud enough for me to tap out the pin and then clean out the firing pin channel and elsewhere in that area. I had the same issue with my magazine floor plate and the issue was some oil and grit had collected on the bottom and the floor plate got stuck.

A little bit of scraping and a couple of good whacks with a mallet and the floor plate was free. I'm hoping it'll be the same for the firing pin retaining pin.

Yes, they make several models, both double stack and single stack. I keep hoping more people will offer models as well and more choices in ammo will be offered.

plus they ship with a 9mm barrel (or at least mine did). but I haven't tried any .22 TCM through it yet (hadn't ever heard of the round before I got the pistol).

TCM is a lot of fun. No recoil, lots of muzzle flash.

I solved my firing pin issue on my Tokarev today.

All it took was a proper sized punch, a small mallet and a quick spray of Ballistol. Turns out it was just some excess gunk left over from when Classic Firearms or whoever cleaned off the cosmoline.

The Ballistol ate through the gunk and I was able to free my firing pin retaining pin and check the firing pin for damage. I was also able to clean out the channel of grease and packing oil. Now I just need some ammo to do a functions test and I'll be good to go.

Guns.com - New Side Folding Stocks For The Ruger 10/22 and Mini-14 Rifles


For the past 24 years, New Hampshire-based Samson Manufacturing has produced high-quality firearms parts and accessories, with its latest product replicas of the side-folding stocks designed by Ruger. The side-folding stocks are offered with the .223 chambered Mini-14 Ranch Rifles that hit the market in 1973.

When Ruger stopped making the stocks in 1989, it caused a limited supply. Thirty years on, with the public’s continued love for the classic and proven Mini-14 platform, it’s not uncommon to see these side-folding stocks selling for upwards of $1,000.

Samson decided to seize on this market and over the last year, it’s been working with Ruger to produce exact replicas of the original Mini-14 side-folding stocks. Dave Biggers, the director of sales and marketing at Samson, told Guns.com in December that the only difference between the original Ruger stock and Samson’s would be the grip. Instead of bakelite on the Ruger, Samson’s will be made out of a super-durable plastic. They’ll also sell for under $300.

Yeah, they are gonna sell a lot of those. And I bet it increases Ruger's sales of the Mini rifles as well.

The Samson stock for the 10/22 looks pretty neat.

Not quite sure if it's neat enough for me to drop 300 bucks on, though.

Just out of curiosity, how stable was the folding butt plate deal on those stocks ?

Like did they have a tendency to fold under recoil or did they lock in place to prevent that ?

I don't know what other's experiences are. A friend has had one for about 35 years and never had a problem with it. They do lock. It is not a friction thing.

Cool. That's what I wanted to know, Woods.

I kind of figured they locked in place, but I wasn't entirely sure about that.

I admit it, I'm a life-long Ruger fanboy. I have several SA & DA Ruger revolvers, including an old 3-screw .357 Blackhawk I got when I was sixteen....but I can't decide if I like this one or not. :ooh:

That's kind of neat, but the grip looks a bit on the small side to me.
