Re: Lost my carry gun

Glad you were able to locate your gun after being mia for over a month. Handguns worry me the most when they get into the wrong hands. I keep a pretty short leash on the ones I have. Safes are a nice place to store guns but they have their drawbacks too. There never big enough it seams like. I helpe...

Re: Still hanging on

They are bad every where in Texas. All you need to do is look at all the agriculture land they tear up on a regular basis. They do not stay in one area very long as they are constantly moving. They cover a lot of ground, 2-3 miles. There is shooting around me every night. My neighbor has an FLIR set...

Re: Win 296 light load

W296/H110 does not download well at all and gets very spikey when done. This powder was designed for full power loads for the Magnums and 30 carbine. Use a different powder if you want reduced loads. TB is good as well as a few others. Most powders will be very dirty when down loaded.

Re: Still hanging on

With most of getting older I've slowed down for sure. A few other boards I visit are very slow too. Maybe 1 post a week. For me I've been busy in my new shop. Finished up a barrel for my AR and been testing it out. I've had to tweak the chamber free bore in order for some of my ammo to chamber. I th...

Re: Expanded my work shop with some new equipment

Yes, I have full range of travel with about 1 extra foot at each end. When I first moved it in I had it centered on that end, but discovered that I wasted too much valuable wall space, so I decided to move it to one side. It was a big job on moving it into the shop, a couple of neighbors helped me. ...

Re: Mystery Scratch

I don't think it will be a problem.

Wondered if something happened to the RS assembly causing it to move out of position.

Re: Expanded my work shop with some new equipment

As long as you don't sell it it's legal, for personal use. You have to put a SN on it for sale. That's why there is market for 80% receivers. I can buy a completed receiver cheaper than I can a 80% one.

Re: Expanded my work shop with some new equipment

This knee bend mill sure beats the tabletop model I had when I built my 1911. I'm planning on making a few more, now that I have some good equipment. I'm also getting into turning rifle blanks and building them out. :D

Expanded my work shop with some new equipment

I added some new equipment to my shop this last month.

Re: MARKII jamming

May want to look at your magazines. There is a mod to make the bullet release earlier, preventing jams. The mod is a simple rounding of the ears.

Re: Laser sights?

I have laser sights (grips) on my carry gun. Yes it does/will give your position away but it may also be a good deterrent for the other guy. Mine are the grips, replaced the std grips. With these they activate when you grip the gun. I've looked at the others and did not like the bulkiness, interfere...

Re: 44 special in Magnum cases

Yes you can. I do it all the time with 357mag/38spl. Normally you take the SPL load, and add 0.1- 0.2 gr more of powder to make up for the larger case. If you have a crony you want to keep them above 700 fps and you will just fine.
