BE 86 Recipe?

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 03:12:53 GMT

Greetings! Brand new here, nice place :) I was hoping one of you mad scientists could gimme a hand. I've always used bullseye or unique. I was dusting off my equipment and getting set back up. I was running out the last of some Bullseye and as I got to the bottom I thought - rather than...

Another .22LR 1911 option

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 01:32:25 GMT

Lots of talk in the forum about 1911 type .22LR pistols. Here is a photo of my new Browning 1911-22 with a Burris FastFire III installed. Based on photos I thought the sight cut was standard Novak, but it is downsized just like the rest of the gun. So I had to have the dovetail cut enlarged for...

Just got my new Sig P938

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 01:19:16 GMT

First all, I know I have only been shooting for less than a year, but it is so much fun the first time you open up the package with a new gun. Almost like that new car smell!! The gun is just beautiful. Took it to the range today. Shoots so smoothly for a pocket pistol. It is so comfortable in...

6.5x55 AI or 6.5-06 AI help me choose

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 01:05:47 GMT

I have a Tikka T3 chambered in 6.5x55 Swedish that I’m considering either having the chamber modified to an Ackley improved or possibly rebarrelling to 6.5-06 AI. My ultimate goal is to be able to push 140 grain Nosler Partitions past 3000fps. My current barrel is 22” so I’ not sure if it’s long...

S&W 617 Revolver

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 00:41:46 GMT

Is there anything I should know about the S&W Model 617? The only 22LR gun I have is a 10/22 rifle I want to improve my accuracy with my 686 so I am thinking about getting a 617 so I can plink away and work on my trigger control cheaply Does this seem like a reasonable plan?

Savage Axis II

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 21:24:59 GMT

A couple of weeks ago I purchased a Savage Axis II in 6.5 Creedmoor...I finaly got out to shoot it today and very dissatisfied...Every time I fired a round the magazine would drop down in the rear, so that you have to reinsert it every time you fired a round. I made sure that it snapped into place...

getting ready with my new gun

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 18:14:46 GMT

Howdy folks, I bought myself a Ruger American in .308 for Christmas. Fixed it with a Vortex Viper hs 4-16. Never shot much of a bolt action before, exept my mosins but they don't exactly compare. I'll be taking it out to the national forrest in a week or two to try out my shooting up to 200...

Question about the frame on Traditions Rawhide series single action .22's.

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 18:09:15 GMT

I recently purchased a Traditions Rawhide series single action .22 with a .22 mag. cylinder. It is a 10 shot revolver made by Pietta Firearms. I haven't yet had the opportunity to shoot it. Although all the ones I have seen on the internet are matte black mine is a glossy black as though blued. ...

Ruger Single Six

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 17:36:19 GMT

I am new here and have a question. I have been given a Ruger Single Six 22LR/22MAG revolver. From the serial number I have found that it was made in 1975. I have the original box, papers and owners manual. Q#1, I see several comments about a "3 screw" model. What is a "3 screw" model? Q#2 How...

Tactics in today’s MD HS Shooting

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 17:30:54 GMT

The SRO was a member of the SD SWAT team. He ran to the scene and immediately engaged versus sheltering in place. So far, only the shooter is dead. In this world of active shooters, once it has been established beyond a shadow of a doubt who the bad guy is,I don’t think there is any doubt that the...

CNN is reporting that the MD HS Shooter has been terminated.

Kroger and Rural King - Mod: Under discussion already

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 14:42:21 GMT

Kroger grocery says they are dropping black gun mags from their mag racks and last time I looked it appeared that pretty much all the gun mags were gone. I buy stuff like Man At Arms and others that are more focused on vintage or hunting type stuff. Mags full of black plastic and stainless do not...


Tue, 20 Mar 2018 14:31:21 GMT

Following the news a bit about a school shooting in heavily gun controlled Md. Heard two students got hit, but the school resources officer nailed the perp, apparently before any rampage could take place? Sort of shoots down arguments against armed security in schools, for me.

Concealed carry while driving, some questions

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 12:16:21 GMT

Okay, this is something I never really considered before, but I figured it's something to think about. I like to carry appendix style, with my handgun sitting roughly at the 1 o'clock position. It's the most comfortable position for me. However, this position is quite difficult for me to be able...

9mm AR riffle with full size magazine

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 11:05:06 GMT

I am in the market for a AR 9mm. I would like one with an AR look, to include the magazine. The little skinny 9mm mags, that many of them have, is a turn off for me. There are many .22 choices with full size mags. Name (link if you can) the 9mm versions with full size magazines.

Turn NEW bolt rifle into OLD Mauser lookalike

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 07:12:01 GMT

Hi all, I am new to his forum. I am wondering about the feasibility of turning a newer rifle like a Ruger M77 into a Kar98 or Yugo M48 lookalike. I really love the look and feel of old Mausers, but 8mm is drying up and I am not a reloader. Additionally, I am not so interested in the...

Help me pick a new revolver?

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 04:32:23 GMT

Hello, I've picked up shooting a year or so ago and I like revolvers. I only own three: Sp101(2.25"), Taurus 85, and a S&W 442. I love them, but I can't hit much at distances since they're snubs. I've been looking around for a new full size, but can't decide. I also live in CA, so my...

Questions on Valuation of Old S & W Revolver

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 03:17:12 GMT

A friend of mine ask me to place a value on a somewhat old S & W revolver. It is nickel plated, 6 shot, and has a 4-1/4" BBl. I believe I located the Model number on the frame after I opened the cylinder, 2877. The S/N appears to be located on the butt of the square handle 275xxx. "Smith and...

Springfield XD-E

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 02:14:15 GMT

Just picked up my new Springfield XD-E for my birthday gift to me. I am really impressed with the construction and quality of the gun. Haven't shot it yet due to rain. Traded my Ruger sr9c in for it, very sad. Love the hammer and the safety system.

New Old Pietta Brasser '51 44cal

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 22:50:28 GMT

Was flipping through local listings on Armslist and saw an unfired brasser for $125. Offered the guy $100, and he said sure. Not like we all haven't seen a bunch of these, but I was surprised when the date code was 2003. Was more expecting he got this at Christmas and wasn't into black powder. ...

is the .44 still Special?

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 22:11:30 GMT

I say yes, most definitely. in light of the latest guns coming out in .44 caliber, the most common recommendation is a good Special round, even in Magnum guns. now, I say this because the latest offering seems to be aimed at the (relative) light weight and compact revolvers, such as the S&W...

Unique - Differences between two Lots

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 22:05:31 GMT

Going back to when I first started loading (1984) I have used Unique now and then. But I'm not a fan of the stuff. I'll start there. However, during the shortage, I grabbed a couple pounds out of desperation - I had _no_ intermediate speed propellant at the time, and that's all that was...

357 Magnum - "balanced ammo."

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 20:31:53 GMT

The weather is getting warmer (here, at least) and so for the first time this year, I did some chronographing. The data yielded some interesting-to-me things worthy of several posts. This is the first one. . . I post my fair share here on TFL; and often, I mention what I term as "balanced...

Gen 5 Glock grip cut-out - purpose

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 20:25:02 GMT

If this did not bother so many people I would never have really noticed it. The purpose, I am told, is to help remove stuck magazines. Is this actually a problem? I mean has anyone had this occur without causing it and if it is common how does one replicate it for training purposes? My...

6 Reasons Gun Control Will Not Solve Mass Killings-The Daily Signal

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 19:47:08 GMT

Glock 42 magazine release, too easy to activate.

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 17:43:15 GMT

maybe its the size of my hands.... but when shooting right handed, i have the occasion to activate the magazine release inadvertently on my G42. it seems the magazine release requires only slight pressure and very little movement to activate. does anyone know of a more stiff pin spring (mag...

Magnum Primers in Standard Cartridges

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 17:38:02 GMT

Brian Pearce wrote an excellent article for this month's Handloader Magazine. He tested 300 loads for the 308 Winchester and had a very interesting finding when switching to magnum primers. He reported that magnum primers raised pressure by more than 3,000psi in equal loads.

Browning BAR Cycling & Accuracy Problem Fixed

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 16:47:38 GMT

I’m writing this to hopefully help anyone who is having trouble with their BAR . I have a 1970 Browning BAR in 30-06 that would not cycle more than two rounds and would not shoot less than a 5 inch group. I did extensive research, talked to friends that owned them, and did some trial and error...

WIDTH of Kahr cw9 or p9 grip?

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 16:06:01 GMT

I have a Kahr K40 and love the gun. But was wondering if the grip width on the CW9 or P9 are slimmer because of the polymer grip frame rather than the hogue rubber grips. My Shield measures 1" at the grip width, so are the CW9 and P9 that thin. Could someone please take a micrometer and...

H&R Barrel Swaps

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 15:50:32 GMT

I know I've seen it here before, I just can't seem to get the search function to find what I'm looking for. My LGS has an H&R with the .223 varmint barrel for well under $200. No other barrels. I remember reading that extra barrels are not plug n play, but is there someone/somewhere that will do...

325 TR Range report

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 15:40:48 GMT

Took my new 325 Thunder Ranch out sat to try out my new Altamont grips which were disappointing ( still to thin) and give the revolver a work out. The gun shot great... until it didn't. After about 75 rounds my barrel shroud loosened up to the point where I can move it side to side by hand.:mad:...

GSG 1911-22 Review

I just picked up a Ar. After I shoot a few hundred rounds I would like to get a red dot. My eye sight is not as good as it was years ago.

Hey guys. My 650 is experiencing a new problem, at the powder throw position, the cases are leaning over and not lining up the mouth with the powder funnel, if I dont push the case mouth over a slight bit I run the risk of rolling over a portion of the case mouth. Is there an adjustment etc that Im...

+P in newer vs. older S&W Airweights.

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 12:16:23 GMT

Why are the newer Airweights such as the S&W 438 and 638 +P rated while the older Model 38's aren't? What has been done to the aluminum frames to allow this?

Glock 42 vs Glock 43 cannot decide!

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 05:46:43 GMT

For the life of me I cannot decide! No, I cannot afford both. It’s one of the other. I currently have rented BOTH about 3 Times and still cannot decide Here’s what is making me unable to decide: Glock 42 (380) Pros: The Glock 42 I can shoot very well, it’s such a soft shooter. My accuracy...

Doctors and bullets---The Dumb Continues

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 05:43:57 GMT

Seems like the medical profession is gathering itself up for a push at stronger gun control. They’re pushing the idea that “gun violence” is a “public health concern” and our law makers should pay attention to what they [the medical profession] has to say about “gun control”. Toward that end...

Are there any rifles that have no POI shift with a bayonet attached?

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 01:59:18 GMT

I've noticed that with a Lee Enfield or a Mosin attaching a bayonet shifts the POI dramatically (~8 to 10 MOA). Are there any rifles where this is minimized?
