  1. I recently purchased a RIA Ultra 1911and have put 450 rounds through it to get it broke in. For the most part, the gun hasn't had any issues. There have been about 3 times where the gun seemed to go out of battery I think. The gun would fire and eject a round but once a new round was chambered, the gun would not fire. There was a round in the chamber and the hammer cocked back but it would not fire. The first 2 times I simply racked the slide to eject the round and put it back in the magazine and continued shooting. Today while shooting I had the same thing happen except that racking the slide would not extract the live round. I locked the slide back and used a cleaning rod to push the round out of the chamber and clear the gun. I wonder if I need to have a gunsmith do some work on it or hope that the issue resolves itself. Today I also had a round nosedive into the chamber and get stuck. I was using 200 grain Gold Dots. The first 400 rounds I have fed the gun have been 230 grain FMJs. I wanted to run some JHPs through it also to see how it handles them. I've read that I may need to get the feed ramp polished to help with that issue. Overall, the gun has been a joy to shoot and I haven't had many issues with the gun. I look forward to shooting it whenever I can. Being my first .45, the recoil isn't as bad as I thought. It's not any worse than my .40 Glock. The heavy frame helps absorb most of the kick. I just hope I can get the bugs worked out because I would like to carry the Rock as a EDC when desired. Anyone have any suggestions or ideas as to what I may need to do? Thanks.
  2. SA takes a shot across Sig's bow. 2 years later A huge 1 round increase in base mag capacity, but with an RDS variant available. https://www.springfield-armory.com/hellcat-features/ Some folks avoid SA due to their moves a couple years back, wonder if this will matter for them. One thing seems clear, if you own one of the new Dodge same name cars....here you go.
  3. Anyone interested in seeing/holding a I,W.I. Masada pistol, Tennessee Gun Country in Clarksville has one in their case. New pistol, nice trigger, similar to most mid size striker fired pistols.

    Steyr M9A1

    Got one in, interesting piece. Really low bore axis, different sights. Any experience with them?
  5. .....carry in a S&W Airweight snubnose? Can't be +P. Thanks for any recommendations.
  6. So…I was thinking about .22LR Semi-Auto Rimfire target gun. (I already have a 617 Revolver). I’m a Smith & Wesson Fanboy so I thought I would try a Victory. But the barrel isn’t long enough, I thought they would have a longer version out by know, but it hasn’t happened. They also seem to be having a lot of feeding problems posted on the S&W forums I use. So, I started looking at others. The models I am comparing are the Smith & Wesson SW22 VICTORY Model: 10201, Browning Buck Mark Contour Model: 051508490, Ruger MARK IV COMPETITION Model: 40112, Smith & Wesson MODEL 41, Model: 130512 Let’s go ahead and kick the S&W Model 41 out of the running. I included it because it is the gun that owns this class. Hands down, I would love to have it; but I’m not putting over a grand in a rimfire. I’m not happy with reports I see on the Victory; but you know how that goes. You mainly hear from the people with problems, and I can find those for most of these guns if that’s what I’m looking for. I also don’t like that they don’t have a longer barrel version. The Ruger and the Browning look the best. They both have great reviews. The Browning is $100 less, I would assume that’s because it has an is aluminum receiver?? I’d be curious to know if anyone knows the accuracy difference between these two? I don’t care about suppressors and probably will never buy one unless the laws change. But I chose the threaded barrel on the Victory simply because it was an option. It isn’t an option on the others; and that’s fine, it’s not a deciding factor. What do you guys think of these? Should I be looking at others? Let’s discuss. And lets please keep this to semi-auto target rimfires; not rimfire copies of our Tupperware carry guns; that will be another thread. ************************************* Browning Buck Mark Contour Stainless URX, 7 1/4 (Barrel is Satinless, Receiver is Aluminum) Model: 051508490, Stainless, MSRP: $589.99, Barrel:7.25", Weight: 39 OZ, Height: unk, Length: 11.3", Width unk, Sight Rear: Pro-Target, Sight front: Pro-Target, Cap:10 https://www.browning.com/products/firearms/pistols/buck-mark-pistols/current-production/buck-mark-contour-stainless-urx-7.html Street: https://grabagun.com/browning-35206309.html $485 https://www.budsgunshop.com/product_info.php/products_id/98379/browning+bm+cntr+stainless+22+725+urx $520 Ruger MARK IV™ COMPETITION, Model: 40112, Stainless, MSRP: $749, Barrel:6.88", Weight: 45.8 OZ, Height: 5.50", Length: 11.12", Width 1.75" Sight Rear: Adjustable, Sight front: Fixed, Cap:10 https://www.ruger.com/products/markIVCompetition/specSheets/40112.html Street: https://grabagun.com/ruger-mkiv-competition-22lr-6-88-ss.html $589 https://www.budsgunshop.com/product_info.php/products_id/34252/ruger+mark+iv+competition+22+lr $613 Smith & Wesson SW22 VICTORY THREADED BARREL, Model: 10201, Stainless, MSRP $429, Barrel: 5.5", Weight 36.0 OZ,Height: unk, Length: 9.2", Width unk, Sight Rear: Adjustable Fiber Optic, Sight front: Green Fiber Optic, Cap:10 https://www.smith-wesson.com/firearms/sw22-victory-threaded-barrel Street: https://grabagun.com/smith-and-wesson-sw22-victory-22lr-5-5-thread.html $329 https://www.budsgunshop.com/product_info.php/products_id/5681/smith+%26+wesson+10201+victory+22+lr++55+10r+threaded+barrel+stainless+steel $324 Smith & Wesson MODEL 41, Model: 130512, Carbon Steel Blue, MSRP: $1369, Barrel:7", Weight: 44.8 OZ, Height: unk, Length: 12", Width unk Sight Rear: Adjustable, Sight front: Patridge, Cap:10 https://www.smith-wesson.com/firearms/model-41-0 Street: https://grabagun.com/s-w-41-7-22lr-blue.html $1119 (Out of Stock) https://www.budsgunshop.com/product_info.php/products_id/26195/s%26w+m41+10%2b1+22+lr++7" $1193 (Out of Stock) Beretta 87 Target, Model: J87T010, Frame: Aluminum Alloy black, Slide: Blue, MSRP: $1050, Barrel:5.9", Weight: 41 OZ, Height: 5.3, Length: 8.8", Width: 1.1", Sight Rear: Adjustable Target, Sight front: Interchangeable, Cap:10 http://www.beretta.com/en/87-target/ Street: https://grabagun.com/beretta-87-22lr-5-9-bl-2-10rd.html $928 https://www.budsgunshop.com/product_info.php/products_id/25754/Firearms/Handguns/Beretta/Beretta+87+Target+22+LR+5.9+Adj.+Sights+10+1
  7. TAURUS TX22 (black) @ SportsmanOutdoorSuperstore $219.99 FREE Ship Plus $50 Rebate
  8. Shield prices are pretty low right now I would think an additional $50 off might help some folks.
  9. What is the highest round count that you guys have seen from a pistol chambered in .40S&W ? A certain trainer in middle Tennessee says in one of his videos that pistols chambered in this caliber will beat themselves to death because of the high pressures. I had a Glock 22 Gen 2 and had at least 8,000 rds through it and had no signs of destruction other than natural wear and tear. Any thoughts ?
  10. I know some of you could care less where your guns are made; but many of us do; this discussion is for those members. Buy American, Hire American, America First. More and more we see guns in the bottom feeder category that are American Made. Lets face it, until the last few years the only decent American Made gun that is low cost and wasn’t (arguably) junk was the Hi Point. We have come a long way. The thread about the Stoger and the Canik (both made in Turkey) being under $300 made me think that we have better options for less money; even American Made options. So if you like to buy cheap guns, and want to buy American; now is a good time. Even prices on some of the top quality, best sellers in the Industry have dropped. The SCCY CPX we routinely see selling below $200. It’s currently made in Florida with the company in the process of moving to Tennessee. And it gets good reviews Kel-Tec PF-9 right at $200 and the P-11 just over, and made here. Diamondback at just over $200. New models like the Remington R51 (brought back after a bad start) at just over $200 and the Mossberg MC1SC at around $300; we shall see. Ruger EC9 at around $250 and Security 9 and SR9 at $300. MOSSBERG MC1SC at $300; we shall see. All the Highpoints at around $175. They have a big following… bless their heart. And even Smith & Wesson Shields at $250 and Full Size models dropping below $300!! Proven performers.
  11. I have owned a bunch of handguns but the Shield is the first handgun I ever owned that had an ejector that wiggled. All my previous guns had ejectors that were fixed and did not move. I called S&W and they said it was made that way and other owners say that theirs wiggle too. My Shield runs great and is awesome , I have just never seen an ejector like this. Have you Shield owners noticed this on your ? Mine is a 9mm.
  12. I think Remington is trying to make up for the FUBAR they made with the jam o matic they came out with, and consequently recalled a while back. A couple of weeks ago I got one, just because I like pain. Turned out to be a great gun. Full sized [and then some]. 2-19 round [ metal ] mags come with the gun. If you get a chance to fondle one check it out. I"m getting another one. Price, $239.00 + $20.00 shipping. Mine has only hick upped in the 400 rounds I've put through it.
  13. .......who is good at trigger jobs on S&W revolvers? Specifically a 638 snubnose. Any ideas on cost?
  14. Has anyone gotten the new Springfield Hellcat yet?
  15. A more carry-able carry gun. I have to hand it to them, did not rest on their laurels knowing the competition would respond. I personally am a huge fan of factory ported guns and am glad to see it. Sights would change your manual of arms potentially. Its interesting. https://www.sigsauer.com/store/p365-sas.html?utm_campaign=P365SAS_LAUNCH&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua
  16. Out of the blue my Dad asked me for help to locate a Colt 1911 Government Model.45 for a friend. Particulars have been pretty limited so far. I am trying to get more details second hand. I have Googled looking for online retailers. I am not a 1911 expert, but I know a bit. Just difficult to narrow down search results with so many options in 1911s Anyone know anywhere that is better than others to find a deal on one? Thanks

    Ruger Wrangler

    Looks like Ruger is going budget to compete with the Heritage Rough Rider with a new revolver called the Ruger Wrangler. Aluminum cerakoted in three color combos to start. MSRP is $250. Looks like I'll be selling a rough rider and upgrading to a Ruger for my niece and nephew. https://ruger.com/products/wrangler/models.html
  18. Supposed to be available soon, MSRP $39.99. Steel aftermarket mag.

    Gen5 Glock 19

    So, For my next handgun, I am pretty sure Ill get a Glock 19 Gen5, I have a GSSF certificate I plan on putting my usual Trigicon HD sites on it but also the Zev Pro magwell, as I am not a fan of the cutout on the Gen 5 19, and I love the look of it on an all black gun, I love my 19x with no finger grooves, so more than likely I will love the Gen 5 just wondering if any of you have put one together like this?
  20. For any who are hunting one, $579 and change. Salesman said they have one only.

    Keltec CP33

    Using the search feature on the front page showed no results for this. Has anyone seen/shot the new Keltec CP33 .22LR pistol? I picked up a S&W Victory earlier this year or late last year and have not been in the market for a new .22 since then, but this little pistol looks sweet. Just watched a video of it on Hickok 45's youtube channel and it looked awesome. Comes standard with 33 round mags and has an add on for a 50 round capacity. Has a threaded barrel and his ran flawlessly pretty much for the most part. I understand they are in short supply, of course, and not sure of the costs but supposedly under 350 or so.
  22. If I can get one less than $200 believe I will give it a run.
  23. Yes, I bought one... it is in transit. I ran a few searches here and found very little discussion on the PX4 series; I wasn't surprised. The PX4 in general seems to be overlooked in the tumultuous cloud of handgun discussions, being out-shined by it's 92 and Nano relatives. I've always been a bit of a rebel. I bought a Walther CCP when everyone hated them (or loved them... no in-between) and have no regrets. So when I was looking around for a small hi-cap DA/SA CC gun that had serious rep & quality behind it I was a bit shocked to discover the PX4 SC. I've mainly been a "Glock Guy", the wife and I have owned several over the years. But awhile back I handed down my only DA/SA firearm (a Bersa Pro UC 9) and discovered that I miss it....very reliable and accurate but a bit larger than I wanted (more G19 sized) for CC. The PX4 SC is "baby Glock" sized, tho' more rounds and a different action. Yes I know it's "chubby"...so is a G26....I have one. I tested out a rental FS PX4 at the range and was happy with the result. I think I'll be even happier with the SC version, "bat wings" and all. We shall see.
  24. It appears that Colt is making a new King Cobra model revolver. I saw an ad in Guns & Ammo magazine this past issue. Makes me giddy that they may reissue the Python and my fave...the Anaconda https://www.colt.com/detail-page/king-cobra-357
