Estate Sale pick Up


Moped

Recommended Posts

Went to an estate sale yesterday and picked up this Stoeger Luger .22, with an aluminum frame. I think it’s one of the best examples of one that I’ve seen.  Really a bit surprised by the size and heft. It’s very close to the only Luger P08 that I’ve ever fired! Hopefully I’ll get to shot it tomorrow.

Took it this afternoon and ran a couple of magazines through it. It’s very accurate! I could keep them in an inch at 7 yards. However, after the first 5 rounds, I started having issues with extraction. These are known to have tight chambers. The second mag was no better. In fact it got worse, with unshot rounds not chambering. I’m going to give it a good cleaning and oiling and look for some hotter rounds. I was using standard velocity rounds.

I have several .22s that will not reliably extract Federal American Eagle. I had several bricks of it so I have been using it up in revolvers. My point is after cleaning you may want to try a different brand of ammo.

Oh, I agree and that's my plan.  I was using Olin White Box Target, which I have several bricks of.  FRom reading on the internet, these pistols like the hot stuff better. I think most semi auto pistols do.

Olin?  How old is that stuff?  Definitely try some HV and/or something a bit newer.

Do you think I'm a spring chicken?  This stuff was produced back in the 80s or 90s.  😄  I got three bricks of .22 shorts that were made in the 60's, maybe. 🙂 

The Olin is match grade stuff for rifles.  And yes, I need some HV rounds.  Now to find some... 😞

The one I had, the extractor spring was so light that the extractor would slip off the rim at the first opportunity.  I "boosted" the extractor spring with a small slice of ink pen straw and that helped it quite a bit.

      Taurus PT111 Millennium G2 For sale. Like New Condition with box and manual. Purchased in Feb 2017. Taken to the range once, fired about 225 rounds of various FMJ and JHP ammo. All ammo ran flawlessly. The gun was surprisingly accurate but the trigger bit my finger more than I was comfortable with. None of the You Tube reviews mentioned anything about this so I guess I was the odd man out on this. Anyway, I'd rather sell it and get something that doesn't pinch my trigger finger.
      $180 + bill of sale to TN resident and DL or Carry permit.

      I might have made a huge mistake, boys. Could lead to a divorce. I stopped in my LGS (Crossroads Guns, in Fountain City), for some HV .22LR for my Stoeger Luger. I walked out with the .22 rounds and after putting a Walther PPK/s in lay-a-way.  It’s a beaut, a Interarms Stainless steel pistol,  with both mags, box, manuals cleaning rod... all for 5 bills plus tax and BCG. Lay-a-way for 12 months!
      Oh Lord, what have I done???  😆😆😆
      Looks like this!

      Anybody ever try and run 7mm subsonic? Was thinking about a 300 Blackout but I'm not stocked on any ammo or components and after seeing 20 rnds for $30 at the LGS I think that boat has sailed for now.
      I've got an old Contender in 7mm TCU that I haven't shot in eons. Wondered if anyone had tried running something like that suppressed? I do have some makins' to get that going.
