  1. Yep...I am ashamed as I did the same thing... Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  2. I was lucky enough to get to Walmart in east Knoxville this morning after work, and find I was the first of 3 asking about 22lr ammo. They had 3 cases of bulk... 1 box of remington 225 count and 2 boxes of Federal 500 count. with a 3 box limit, I am certain it is all gone. I think the federal boxes were just under 20 dollars. (Gun shops that have 22lr have been selling boxes of 50 for 4 - 8 bucks (nice raket they have eh... (8 x10 = $80 so a 60 dollar proffit for them WOW!) even at 4 dollars a box they double their money!   Anyway, I can finally shoot the dang M
  3. Hmmm, looking back at that losd, it wasn't as light as I remember... 34 grains of 3031. I did shoot extremely tight groups at 100 yards with it. slthough they were not cast bullets (wish I had trued those) the 336 was an older one, pre microgroove. It had developed a headspace issues and went to live somewhere else. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  4. Was my thought also, would I devalue the pistol if it were restored? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  5. I did something similiar with my 336 but use Speer 100gr Plinkers (http://www.midwayusa.com/product/618190/speer-bullets-30-caliber-308-diameter-100-grain-plinker-round-nose-soft-point-box-of-100). I however do not load them as light as you all... (Can't remember my load data right now, but will look when I get home from work)

  7. I'll try to do that...I obtained this pistol much earlier than 2005. It came ftom a state that required handgun registration and a permit to purchase... one of those "blue" states... Anyway... it was speculated that it was imported instate but couldn't be registered due to its age and lack of information from the shop owner. ...since Tennessee is s touch more conservative I was gifted this pistol... My father-in-law is a guy who thinks it neat to keep and shoot his firearms... I have been able to shoot some truely great firearms thanks to him. My favorite was a springfield 50-70 that
  8. If I run the serial number on Colt's website, I get a production year of 1959...However as you pointed out the frame isn't marked properly (from what I have read) to be a Colt... or am I mistaken? the "-" (dash) preceding the C is throwing me off a bit.   Thanks for the page link Steelharp!    I also have a "flat" and smooth main spring housing that came with the "brown bag" - Which makes it more convincing to me that this might be a "parts gun". 
  9. Not looking to sell or seek a price, but would like some information on this 1911 Colt, and some guidance as to what "should be" done with it. First the story... This handgun was given to me as a gift from my father-in-law. He had acquired the gun from a friends gun shop who had passed away suddenly and this was found in the shop in a brown paper bag (I believe this is how the story went...) Anyway, with no paperwork as required by the laws of his home state, and it was my birthday, I was given this 1911. It is in very rough shape, it does however function properly, and fire accurately
