  1. Yeah, I've shot both of those guns! Tom is spot on right there! There used to be a picture around here somewhere of the bruise that fukkin 458 of Roman's left on me after TWO shots! But yeah, I'd shoot that MF'er again!
  2. I have a set of the straight bits. I no longer have that case though, the Chapman stuff was assimilated into the rest of the bits and drivers in my gunsmith tool chest. Chapman is good stuff!
  3. I'm not sure that I can do that either brother! Remember, I was shooting 40 S&W, lighter, faster boolits there!
  4. Well this buffer and the orange spring made quite a difference! The gun still flings the brass back about 20-30 feet between 4 and 5 o'clock but the recoils is noticeably less and absolutely no malfunctions with the 30 rnd ETS mags. I figured the feed malfunction was the bolt just plain running too fast and this bears that out. The ammo I've been shooting has been the factory 155 grn. Border Patrol issue hollowpoints and that stuff is hot! I need to get some of my reloads put together to see how they function. The reloads I have right now are for competition and are loaded a bit longer for my 2011 so they won't fit in a regular 40 S&W mag. I'm guessing this gun will be sweet shooting with my 175 grn. TC loads.
  5. The ONLY reason you would need a 22# recoil spring in a 45 ACP 1911 is if you're running hot handloads like the bowling pin shooters do! I've never ran anything heavier than an 18# spring and have often ran 16# springs. I run 12# or 14# springs in my 40 S&W 1911 and STI 2011 in 40 S&W. Also, Albroswift is correct, smoke and soot are good indicators of low pressure rounds.
  6. Typical cop mentality!
  7. Or full of sand!😝

    You and me both! Friggin midwest weather!
  9. That didn't last long! The above link now takes you to the 60 rnd. AR-15 drum and the 50 rnd. 308 drum is now $129.95!
  10. That right there! I would bet a Benjamin that IF he is even convicted he will receive probation. I'm actually wondering if this isn't a ploy to go after his retirement? I think the man is a POS coward and deserves anything he gets but if he does get convicted it will be the start down a slippery slope for law enforcement in this country. The courts decided some time back that law enforcement had no obligation to protect any one individual unless they were in police custody. If Peterson is convicted of these charges and the convictions aren't overturned by a higher court (which I'm pretty sure they would be) then that would leave every LEO in this country open to criminal charges if inaction (for whatever reason) on their part resulted in the death of someone. I want to see Scot Peterson get his just deserts, but not at the expense of my brothers and sisters out on the streets!
  11. As one of my grandsons would say, "it's the 'shiznit'!"
  12. In the immortal words of Forest Gump, "It happens!"
  13. I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago when I caught the tail end of a $29.95 sale and by the time it came in the sale was over. I didn't want to post it without having a chance to assess it first since it IS an NcSTAR product, but this tool is VERY well made! It's worth the new sale price of $35.50 if you mess with pistols with fixed sights much. For the last 30+ years I've been pistolsmithing I've always used the hammer and brass drift method of sight adjustment, which is not the most accurate way of getting the job done! I can take this to the range and dial in a fixed sight pistol easily. Great price for a tool of this caliber! @98Z5V Tom, you can probably appreciate what this thing does. https://www.dvor.com/ncstar-universal-pistol-rear-sight-tool.html
  14. Exactly what I thought. One of the reviews said the upper was threaded for the DPMS barrel nut. Some of the Matrix uppers were threaded that way too.
  15. Right to Bear has a great sale on Diamondback 308 upper/lower blem sets right now for $129.99. Don't know how long it will last though. These are Armalite pattern.; https://www.righttobear.com/diamondback-armalite-AR10-308-blemish-upper-lower-p/db10-308-b-set.htm
