Re: The new Ruger Mark IV Target and Hunter

Interesting... Reminds me of popping an AR open. To be honest, I am glad that the Mark 1 through 3 are slightly tough to take apart. That fact really taught me so much about firearms, and brought me to this forum which over the years has been an incredible resource and gave me a baseline knowledge t...

Re: Carry gun

Current system 98% of the time is a Gen 4 Glock 26 with Trijicon HDs in a Comp-Tac C-TAC holster, and 10 round reload in the Glock mag pouch (which is excellent and I highlt recommend). This seems to work really well for my body type. The other 2% of the a Kahr CM9 in the same make and model of hols...

That's a 13" Troy Alpha Rail. I'd like to try one of those super thin Midwest Industry ones.

Very nice, bg! It came out really great, good job. Yeah, the upper vise block certainly helps. The Wheeler Engineering one is my favorite because it comes with a BCG dummy that has an extendable rod which allows you to quickly check for gas tube alignment. This is what I ended up with for my first A...

I've kind of always wanted to feel an earthquake; a small one which does not cause in loss of life or property, of course. It must feel very alien to literally have your world shaken.

I live in Texas though, so the chances are slim.

Overgassed AR-15

My personally built AR-15 blew a primer which somehow got lodged behind the cam pin while the rifle was IN battery...that had to have been a one in several million. At the time, I didn't know that's what happen so I soaked the whole upper in penetrating oil to deactivate the primer if there was a st...

Thanks for the reminder to post an update. I ended up getting the XDs back right before Christmas. I sent it in mid September 2014, so they had it a bit over 3 months. I did get an extra mag out of it though. I will pretty much echo the sentiments regarding the trigger. My post recall XDs .45 initia...

I got my XDs back yesterday. The trigger feels just as bad as when I sent it off (around a 7-lb pull, very mashy, same as when it left) :P. I don't think I will get a chance to really put the updated pistol through its paces until the end of the month. After I test it, I will share my conclusions. T...

Haha yes, no worries. Although I do not anticipate getting it back for a while because I sent it in after the recall had been underway for well over a week. When I get it back, I will be sure to share my impressions. I personally never experienced any of the conditions that prompted the recall eithe...

Apparently Springfield doesn't have a fix figured out yet - I'm rather annoyed with the whole subject. This was indeed the case. I was incorrect in my previous posting. SA has since determined a fix and started shipping pistols back yesterday (10/18/13). When I get mine back, I will put it through ...

As far as I can tell, it seems to be internet rumor at this point that SA does not have a fix figured out by now. However, SA not refuting these claims means they could be true. Based on the info I've seen, I'm not really convinced. I think it's more likely that they called the recall before they ha...

On the bright side, in addition to leading to the abolition of slavery in the US, the American Civil War jump started American industry and infrastructure. The argument can be made that without the civil war, the US never would have become a superpower. It's interesting to think how many of those 40...

There are A LOT of possible causes for POI changes during shooting. In addition to what BE and blue noted (which are likely the causes seeing as you only fired 2 rounds), POI can change as a barrel heats up. Often less expensive barrels are not stressed relieved post fabricating, and they are also u...
