Carry Weapon #1

Carry Weapon #2

  1. What upper is on this? I found no markings.
  2. I recently “fit” a nighthawk drop in threaded barrel to a kimber custom ii. Didn’t take much to make it fit well and has great lock up when manually cycled. The gun fires, ejects and loads fine with no indication of odd wear after a few mags. This is with an 18 lb recoil spring. I threaded a piston and an octane .45 onto and it fails to go into battery completely after being fired, short by approximately one 1/16th of an inch. Swapped to a 22 lb spring and it’s a little better, only takes slight pressure on the rear of the slide with my thumb to go back into battery. It’s close enough that it fires a second round (I know, only did it once) but not a third. I’m wondering what spring weight anyone else is using with their suppressed 1911 or of anyone has any similar experience with suppressed 1911’s in .45 acp. I’m also thinking it could possibly be an issue with the weight of the suppressor or barrel but haven’t tried any other bushings that are a little more open on the barrel. I may also try a different slide stop or fitting/sanding the radius of the bottom lugs a little better. Thanks, Brent
  3. I’m a U.S. arms collector, more like a gatherer than a collector. All the parts for these arms have pretty much disappeared from gun shows. Did any of you guys/gals buy all these parts? If so, reach out to me if you have a stash of these parts for sell or trade. Also in search of a 1941 Johnson to complete my collection of smokeless powder firearms from the Krag to the M4. Thanks, Bob

    Hey y’all, I’m looking to get a DSA fal and wanted to know if it’s worth the money. I’ve seen a couple of the voyager series around the $1500 range, is that a good price or too high. This would be a range toy and an example for my Cold War collection. While it’ll mostly look pretty I would like it to be reliable and not have any issues. Any insight would be much appreciated.
  5. I find myself needing a Leather gun belt to wear with a suit or even. shorts I have looked at Hanks Bigfoot and Steel core but I don’t have any experience with these brands Does anyone have any recommendations thanks

    Weapon Light

    Do any of you have a weapon light for their pistol? If so do you carry it IWB or only at home or in your vehicle? I have never had one on a pistol before.
  7. Hi I have a Walther PPQ m2 9 mm I shot it today for the first time it shot great but I noticed a definite wall and long trigger pull. Question will springs help this or do I go to a trigger like Walther dynamic or Apex or Overwatch ideas
  8. Acquired an early ‘as built’ carbine. Problem is, the stock has a crack at the fore end and several small cracks behind the receiver. Anyone know a pro that can fix it? Thanks, Bob
  9. Hey TGO I am looking for information if possible - I have a Ruger 10/22 with the ER Shaw bull barrel and Ruger receiver and bolt-upgraded springs and extractor- I have noticed that the first round out of the magazine produces a 1-inch flyer-always above and to the left- I have tried several magazines all with the same results- After the first round, it settles into 1/2 inch group at 50 yards- Does anyone have an experience with the same and possibly a cause and fix- ????
  10. Is there a website i can buy parts/complete bolt for a mosin nagant m91/30 w/o winning a ebay bid or is there a person with a spare bolt for sale? I bought the rifle for $50 w/o a bolt and a bit of rust.
  11. I recently inherited a 1907, savage 32. The slide is not working. The safety will not engage. Anybody have a suggestion on how to rectify this.
  12. Greetings all. New to the forum. I am inheriting several long guns and a few handguns and I'm not sure what I need to do to legally possess them. The firearms are listed in a trust, my wife's sister is the executor and has asked me what is necessary to legally take ownership of them. I will be responsible for selling them at some point so that is not the issue now. What is necessary in the state of TN to bring the firearms here (from MN) and legally possess them so they can be sold at a later date. He has had them for many years, most are old - pre 1960. Is there a registration process, or is that only for handguns? I am a longtime gun owner but I purchased my handguns several years ago. My question is centered around legally possessing firearms that were in a trust. The firearms: a pre 1963 Winchester model 70 Super Grade chambered in .270; a Winchester model 61 .22; Winchester model 94 Saddle Ring Carbine in .32WS; Marlin model 60 .22; Henry model H00IV chambered in .17 HMR; a Ruger model GA34 stainless chambered in .357; and a Colt 125th Anniversary Single Action Army .45. Thanks in advance,
  13. I have not fired my P320 for sevreal weeks. I pulled it from the safe and discovered the slide was locked up. Removed the mag and still locked. Everything looks normal but it is locked up tight. Any suggestions?
  14. Can anyone recommend a gunsmith or machine shop in Middle TN? The one smith that will actually return my calls says he can’t help. Thanks in advance.
  15. If you had a built lower, and a stripped Aero Percision XL upper, what would you build it into (think big bore) and why. Assume you already have a 5.56, a 223 Wylde, and a 300BO. And, second to this, how would you deck out the build? Assume it would be custom Cerekoted at a minimum one color. What color would you do? And if you did more that one color, how would you do that.
  16. Just getting into reloading and unsure what powder measure to get. I'm staring with 9mm but want to eventually get into 223/556 and 300 blk so I'd like pistol and rifle options. I got a rock chucker single stage press to start with.
  17. I have a BCM 16 Reece rifle mid length gas system. I've owned it now 4 years or so. It has always threw and 4 to 430 ejection pattern. The only thing j have done to it recently was put a surefire warcomp as a muzzle device and worked great. I took it off about a week ago and reinstalled the BCM Mod o muzzle device back on it. It suddenly starting throwing a 2 to 230 ejection. I changed the buffer spring to make sure it wasn't getting weak and then added a H2 buffer that was 11 grams heavier and sane thing. Also, noticed today some pretty noticeable ejector marks on the head stamp. Any suggestion on what could could cause this. Field stripped the gun done through cleaning checked gas tube and gas block nothing seems really out of place. Any help would be appreciated.
  18. I have never had this happen to me but it did. I bought federal brand ammo for 80 cents which is a lot cheaper than where I am from. However when I went to load clips, all the ammo are mixed brands. As I started to go through the ammo there is 556 and 223 so my question is can a gun store/pawn shop do this? PLEASE HELP ASAP!! THANK YOU!
  19. Please don't tell me to ditch it and get a Remington 1100. I have a few of those and enjoy them as fine guns. I bought the Hatfield SAS Semi-Automatic .410 (Remington 1100 knockoff) realizing it was a budget gun. According to the person I bought it from, it had exactly 6 shells ran through it. The person admitted that it would cycle 3" game loads, but had problems cycling the 2 1/2" target loads. I have fired this gun several times and have found that it will cycle my reloaded 2 1/2" shells, but is unreliable in cycling factory loaded Winchester AA 2 1/2" MAX Dr. Eq. 1/2 ounce #9 shot Target Loads. Often times, it will cycle the first two shells and will fail to put the third shell in the chamber and the bolt into battery. Just for information... the gun is still quite tight and the recoil spring is quite heavy. Possibly, this gun will cycle like a Remington 1100 after two or three boxes of shells have been ran through it. What I'm hoping to find out here, is information from other Hatfield SA .410 owners as to their experiences with this make and model gun, specifically in the .410 version. I have watched some U-tube videos on this gun and the other larger gauges don't seem to have this problem. I'm trying to find out from real Hatfield SA .410 owners if this gun will eventually loosen up and cycle reliably, or if it's a "no go" gun. Thanks in advance for any information that is willingly shared.

  21. Hey there, I was browsing armslist and I came across this ammo posted for sale in my area. I haven't heard much about this ammo but it seems like the ad is saying that this is hard to come by. Has anyone used this ammo in the past? is it worth the hype or is it more of a collectors item? It is hard to find any good information on this online, any feedback would be appreciated! Thanks! Link to armslist posting: https://www.armslist.com/posts/13408981/knoxville-tennessee-ammo-for-sale-trade--556-ammo---mk255-
  22. I am looking for someone to thread a rifle barrel and do other work. Any suggestions for someone in the Tri-cities area? Thanks
  23. It's an older European surplus gun im sure, so it's probably a spring issue, but the hammer doesn't stay back after firing a shot.
  24. The pellets are falling straight through my Sheridan blue streak pellet gun. Any idea why or how to fix it?
  25. Am thinkin about red dotting one of my glock pistolas... Gonna use a Holosun 507 plus tall irons... Who do ya recommend to do the machining..? Turn around time... Any other observations...? Thanks in advance... leroy.
