If you're a do-it-yourselfer, go for the Powder River trigger kit. I have them installed on all three of my XD pistols.

I would agree and start with the bacon. If you wanna get crazy, you could batter dip and deep fry maybe? Probably a good idea to make sure its not loaded though. Safety first :lol:

I wonder if he only has one post because he keeps looking in the firearms forum for a response?

I pan sear and bake polymer pistols.

The liquid can be used for a wonderful pan sauce.

It's actually going to be named, "Grilling with Garand's and Gunpowder" but your pick was the second choice :wink:

Cleaning supplies
tools - punches , and a hammer and a vice
Parts - replacment spring kit , roll pins for for the fireing pin
ammo

as for mods... shoot first break it in ... then decide what you wanna do

for Xmas and my bday my brother modified my pistol...
with a guide rod, spring kit and seer upgrades

it shoots nice now but it shot pretty good before....

i think there is a lot of other things you should do before racing out a pistol. but if that is what ya wanna do then go for it.

I find poly pistols are best after a nice marinade then grilled served with rice...

and i thought the working title was "The joy of gun cooking"
