Customizing a Ruger NM Blackhawk?

Gentlemen, I purchased a New Model Ruger Blackhawk in .357 about a year ago for my first pistol. I have been quite happy with it during the short time I have owned it. I have however wondered what could be done to it to make it a more solid feeling pistol. I come from a background of shooting "preci...

I've had this exact same thing happen many times. To fix this you will have ot knock out the hammer pivot pin, which will allow you to release the main spring and dissasemble the pistol. This is caused for me when I get in a hurry reassembling the pistol and forget to point the muzzle vertically whe...

Type: Black Lab

Shilen Inc.

Gentlemen, I thought I would take a little time and write about my trip to Shilen Barrels in Ennis, Texas. A buddy of mine had a Weatherby MK V Shilen barreled 338-378 that had put about 2000 rounds through and accuracy was defiantly falling off. He decided he wanted to take it back to Shilen and ha...

hehe, just to add to it we "honey mooned" at the skeet range today for a corporate event I organized. I didn't even hear a complaint! Either she's a good one or I'll hear about it in spades in a few years. :twisted: Hehe, and to add to this, we just bought a new house so I finally got that dedicated...

Barrel Cooling Trick

Gentlemen, The temperatures across the US have been getting hot lately and I figured I would post a trick to help you shoot your rifles quicker, while keeping the barrel cool. This tip will probably only help people who shoot precision bolt rifles, as you cannot do it very well with a semi-auto. I h...

Apparently since i'm not in the retail market there is a reason why I had not heard of "Minimum advertised price" which means they cannot advertise a price cheaper than what the manufacture sets, however if you call them, or email them they can quote you a "r...

I wonder if that would really work? I've been thinking of having that "aluminum spray" installed in my attic/ceiling/insulation to cut down on my power bill ($400 a month in a 1500 sqft house :shock: )

I might just try it. Not like I can look any less silly than I already do to the neighbors.

This is on a MKIII 22/45 so there is no "grip" as there would be on a MKIII.
