  1. I'll agree with you there aren't any Tupperware/striker guns that can match a decent 1911 trigger. I have a nice selection of S&W revolvers and the new ones aren't like the older ones. I have a shield 9mm and the trigger is acceptable for what it is. A 1911 it aint... I picked up a Canik elite and was stunned by the quality of the trigger. I bought it on the spot, even made sure I got the one I had handled and not one from the back stock. Some don't like them because they are made in turkey. I'm not so bothered by it. If you are looking for a reasonably priced 9mm with a remarkable trigger. Give it a look. Frankly I am still shaking my head. It beats any other striker poly gun I've ever handled for trigger, and accuracy. It's not a 1911 trigger but it's the best I've found so far...
  2. I've got mine....
  3. Do tell on the Steyr. I almost bought a GB years ago, but the seller had second thoughts at the last minute.
  4. Canik TP9SF, TP9 Elite, BF arms 22LR single shot w/1.5oz trigger, AMT Baby Automag 22LR, Anchutz Exemplar 22LR, Grendel P10, Benelli MP95E nickel 22LR, S&W Ladysmith, aluminum j-frame, S&W 4026, 2nd issue Colt Match Target Woodsman (this one is just a brag). Hmmmm probably others I used to be into weirdness more than now... Canik is almost mainstream now and darn fine weapons though.
  5. Just had a chat with my wife about this. Regardless of terrorism roots or not the sentiment of watch your back is so true. Situational awareness is our best tool for survival. Without that any weapon we have is useless. Watch your back and stay safe.
  6. More successful than the north Korean missile program.
  7. Thats some useful information there.... Thanks!
  8. No way it's a real plane. The cockpit edge would never seal, it looks like it's a fiberglass mockup. You already pointed out bogus instruments. The leading edge of the wing look VERY thick. It might taxi around, but it probably doesn't have enough power to do more than thay... Funny propaganda though...
  9. Make sure that the TFX, not the TFO. They are very similar but I think the TFO is being discontinued. Not a bad deal if it meets your needs...
  10. Like it or not Amazon listed them for $119 and free shipping for the #6/#8 set. https://www.amazon.com/Truglo-TRUG-Tfx-Pro-Sight-Set/dp/B018IP3WM6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1492448590&sr=8-1&keywords=Truglo+TFX+Pro+SIG
  11. I'll have to look at my old sights now. I mat be miss-remembering . I did check the truglo sights and they are not marked.
  12. Pretty sure mine had a #8 front. Sig is nice enough to mark the front sights. Looking down from the top, weapon pointed away there should be a small # stamped into the top of the dovetail to the left of the blade. Double check yours... Here's a good link to sig sight info. https://www.realgunreviews.com/sig-sauer-sight-heights-sight-numbers/
  13. I put truglo tfx pro sights on my p320 compact using just a brass drift. No big deal to do. I like the sights to. I have trijicon on another gun and like them too. I like the bright day glow insert around the front dot, and a black rear.
  14. Don't limit yourself to car haulers. A decent landscape trailer will do for your scion and there are many more out there. There are ways around the dovetail if your not regularly hauling a car. I loaded a corvette on my 20ft 10k landscape trailer with the use of a couple of 5ft 2x10 and a couple of concrete cap blocks. The biggest issue is if it's got rails and you must open the doors, again the car can be raised on some blocking once on the trailer to allow for that. A little creative thinking will go a long way toward expanding your options and possibly getting a more versatile easier to re-sell trailer to boot.
