Re: Chronic Problems

My motives were good but the result has shown mixed success. I was/am trying to use the 19/22 to "introduce" a Glock to my kids and grand kids. One of my daughters flinches so badly when shooting my 26 or 19 she doesn't even hit the target much less the body mass outline, about half the ti...

Chronic Problems

Disclosure: I've also posted this in the GlockTalk forum.. I need ideas. Four years ago I bought an Advantage Arms .22 conversion kit and assembled it on a new Glock 19 Gen 3 Lower. From the first box of ammunition to the latest box I have tried to run through it I have experienced at least one stov...

Re: Dash Cam

I went the opposite direction and got a $20 dollar dashcam from Fry's. Spent another 7 bucks for a 30 Gig memory card and plugged it in to the lighter socket..automatically comes on when I turn the key. It works great, mounts with a suction cup on windshield, swivels at the touch of a finger records...

Re: Replacing sights on Springfield XD9

Thanks folks, I appreciate your suggestions. I did take the XD9 to one Gunsmith who would not accept the gun because he could not promise not to scratch or gouge it when removing the old sights. I think shipping the slide to Springer may be the smartest move. According to other owners, the Springfie...

Re: Replacing sights on Springfield XD9

Thanks Dan, I have this same pusher but the small anchor blocks have not been tapered to the shape of the XD slide. This is the first edition Sub Compact, not the Mod2. I guess I was hoping there might be some "trick" that I've been missing, like a taper in the dimensions of the mounting c...

Replacing sights on Springfield XD9

Replacing factory sights on my Springfield XD9 Sub Compact and having a terrible time getting the old rear sight off. Mechanical sight pusher will not budge it, and light to moderate tapping with jewler's hammer and brass punch will not move it. I have replaced identical slide-in sights on several G...

Re: Hmm, Remington Once Called it a "Clip"

Maybe stems from all those old WWII guys who remember a magazine is the building where the ammunition was stored. A clip is what they were trained to shove into their rifle. Their "gun" was another entirely different thing...

What's up with RONI ?

Looks like the manufacturer or somebody is dumping a batch of the Glock Roni Conversion kits ... must be 500 to 1000 of them being advertised on Gun Broker. Asking price $300 to $400. Any idea what's going on? New model coming? ATF moving to outlaw them (again?)

Comparison data for BullsEye Powder

I'm reloading 9mm 147 grain Jacketed Hollow Point using original BullsEye and CCI 500 primers. But, I can't find the suggested load data for that powder, only the new BE-86. And it appears there is a wide difference in the two powders. Comparing the data for 124 grain jacketed hollow points Alliant ...

Re: Need to clean really tarnished brass?

For tarnished or really dirty brass I use Citric Acid (Whole Foods or health food stores have it). A very small amount - quarter of a tea spoon of the powder in a gallon of hot water poured over a dish pan or bucket of brass. Stir or swish it around and let it sit for 10 or 20 minutes then drain off...

Re: Subjective, I know

Just weigh it ...twice... then adjust your metering device to reflect the amount if its different.
Pretty much standard, for most of us who reload, to weigh every ten throws to be certain the charge is correct.

Back to my thread... BE-86 anyone?

Re: Subjective, I know

There's been a bit of "buzz" around Alliant's BE-86. They're not saying it means they're phasing out Bullseye but one could speculate since Bullseye is very scarce. Tried the new one yet? And there's an interesting thing happening without any fanfare. Alliant's recipes for reloading are no...
