Re: Rhinoplasty

I have a Rhino revolver as well. Mine has worked well, although it has a rather heavy trigger for DA and is notably funky in its grip angle, so it doesn't get taken out nearly as often as the smiths or the colts. I didn't find it to be as accurate as the better quality S&W or Colt products, but ...

Re: 1911 ?

Yes. The case dimensions aside from length are the same. 10mm dies are the same as .40 S&W. As I said, the extractor does hold the .40 case in place, its just a bit dirty in the chamber afterwards. Its worked with: 10mm SVI Infinity (this has an AFTEC extractor, so that makes it rather reliable....

Re: Korth Ranger...

I understand that it will cost more for better quality... once you get to a certain point the cost for minor improvements is exponentially greater. I’ve never seen a Korth in person, but my one uncle was trying to find one back in the day... but they just were not available here then. I’m not above ...

Re: Korth Ranger...

So, the big question...

Does it shoot better than more pedestrian guns?

Different strokes for different folks re the machining, as I think old school colts and smiths look like what a revolver should- but if this shoots better, I could be convinced to buy one.

Re: 1911 ?

I don't have a S&W 10mm in a 1911- do have a couple older ones (1006, 1076, 1086) However, I do have a number of other ones in a 1911 format. (Colt, SVI, and a Clark custom) If you get it and have issues with finding ammo- The S&W had (the ones I saw) an external extractor, so its more likel...

Re: Okay, THIS is hardcore...

Automated Dillon 1050/1100 with their primer fillers, bullet feeder, and an automated/hydraulic set up. Not that terribly hard to get, or, really that expensive (well when the market ain't screwed up)... but while I don't have all of that (no automated set up), good luck at it keeping up that rate o...

Re: Gifting AR15 stripper lower

Unfortunately the ban on ex post facto laws is only what someone forces it to be.

Taxes are not unusually increased in violation of this.

I don’t trust the senile fools in DC to do anything right.

Re: AR pattern shotguns....opinions?

Not quite apples to apples, but I use an AK style shotgun in 3 gun. There is worlds of difference using a DBM shotgun compared to a tube fed gun as far as rapid reloading and engaging multiple targets between a gun that can get 10+ shells in a magazine with near instantaneous reloading compared to t...

Re: Shotgun best for home defense.

For home defense a shotgun is just fine. The handgun is easier to have available at all times, but less effective. The rifle gives you range at the expense of over penetration. For most all home defense situations, you don’t need more than 10 yards range... 30 feet. Few rooms are further than that a...

Re: 9mm subsonic powder coated 147 grain bullets

Good for you! My usual IDPA 9mm load is a 147 ACME coated TCFP cast bullet with 3.0 gr of titegroup. 2.8 functions, but doesn't make power factor for that game in my gun. However, it does not function my PCC. Unfortunately, finding powder is a bit of a chore right now, so what you have is working, a...

Re: 9mm subsonic powder coated 147 grain bullets

231 is good.

Clays will work, but is very sensitive. Used to be used a lot in USPSA heavy bullet .40 s&w loads, and works, but too many cases let go using it.

Green dot and universal are usable but dirty for this application.

296 and N110 are way too slow for this use.

Re: It's Official, CZ Acquires Colt

More like they want an in to DoD business and this is the established way- have to have US manufacturing capability to do so. Beretta, FN, etc. have gone this route. Personally, with slow joe in, I’d not be investing in semiauto weapons manufacture at this time. Military select fire, sure, civilian ...

Re: Buffalo Shooting--Star Tribune

Heck, the deal I’d like to see is for someone to hide the blue fake in a legislators house and see what they think after the LEO’s search the place to find it like they would in a real life case- no warning a team shows up, pull them out and tears the place up and then shows them what they found and...

Pressure may or may not be pistol level. A heavy bullet going around magnum revolver velocity with a much longer, heavier bullet, and a smaller case capacity...

I would not do it personally.

Re: Lapped a AR barrel

What is your goal? A 3" group at 50 for a gun designed to shoot 50 yards at most (like most cheap M4-gery plinking rifles) is what it is. Most cheap barrels perform better than what you are describing... If this was intended as a varmint gun or longer range target rifle, then getting a good mat...
