Re: S&W model 41

I finally screwed the over travel screw in far enough that I knew it was not the issue. I did remove the grips and clean out the sear area with some spray gun cleaner and thought I had it fixed for about 30 rounds. The stove piping seems to stop, for a short time, after I clean the pistol and lubric...

Re: My New S&W M-41

Nice pistol and now you have it well equipped as well. I'm looking forward to hearing how well it performs. My 70-71 has driven me crazy with stove pipes and failure to reset the trigger, I sincerely hope yours runs like a top.

S&W model 41

Finally, after what seems like forever, I have purchased a 41. It was made in either 70 or 71, based on the serial number. Looks like it was lightly used too. What a nice trigger!! Now, I just have to see if I can get the trigger to reset, consistently. On average, it will fail to reset about 4 out ...

Re: Is the Smith 41 worth the price

Thanks for the reply Bullseye. Could you expand on what you mean by it's "diet sensitive?" The reason I'm considering the 41 is because of it's grip angle (similar to the 1911). The other alternative I'm considering is the Nelson .22 conversion, because I've heard it's a good choice for Bullseye mat...

I'm going to try to make Camp Perry this year

I want to finally try competing at Camp Perry this year and I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on what to bring, other than my service pistol and ammo of course. I've gotten pretty old so I have no illusions when it comes to winning, but I would at least like to try competing. Any advice is...

Who shoots the M1 Garand regularly?

Is there anyone here who shoots the M1 on a regular basis? Do you have a pet load that works well for you?

Is the Smith 41 worth the price

Just like the title asks, is the S&W model 41 .22 worth the price, if the intent is to use it for competition or is the Ruger Mk II target model good enough?

Re: Bullseye powder

I know this is thread is a month old, but what the heck. I've used BE in my .45 acp loads for, I believe at least three decades. It is dirty, but that's what they make powder solvent for. Seriously, I like it because it works well and it's cheap.

Increasing the trigger pull weight

I know this sounds unusual but I want to increase the trigger pull weight of my 1911 government model by about a pound to make the minimum required for CMP service pistol rules. Is it reasonable to slightly bend the three finger spring to accomplish this, or is there a better way?

Re: The Dark Side

I've shot thousands of my hard cast reloads (with CCI primers) through my Glock 19 Gen 4 without a single hiccup. My son shoots USPSA with a Glock 34 and uses reloads with hard cast bullets and not a problem, however these guns are frequently cleaned. I'm truly surprised that you're having an issue ...

Re: brass catchers

I guess you're right about that Bullseye. I think I will do a bit of research online and see what ideas I can come up with.

Thanks

Does anyone know what is used for the mesh on those DIY pvc brass catchers?
