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...

Jeez, who are these faux Texans? who keep posting here? Send every neighbor an invitation to your barbecue, tell them brisket is the menu, and add this line: "I have recently come into a large side of beef and would like to share it with you, my neighbors".... It is scheduled for next Sund...

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...

Subjective, I know

But, your opinions are appreciated.
Bullseye is hard to find these days. What are you using as a substitute? I'm reloading 9mm 147 gr Hornaday hollow points and just picked up a few 124 gr hollow points. Using CCI 500 primers.

WTB Kel-Tec Sub-2000 Glock 17-19 Version (9mm)

Looking for a new or gently used Kel-Tec Sub-2000 Glock 17 - 19 version (9mm) These carbines fold into a neat little package and I can reload 9mm pistol ammunition for a whole lot less than .223 or other rifle ammo. My Glocks are willing to share their magazines with a long gun. PM or open message m...

Conversion Kit for Glock

Anyone have experience with any of the RONI or other adapter kits that enclose a Glock 17 or 19 making it a short barrel rifle? I like the idea of dealing with a single pistol caliber ammunition that I already reload. What are the NFA hoops to be jumped through? The marketing pictures do a good job ...

Suggestions for a new scale ?

My old trusty digital scale finally cratered and what I've found so far can't weight three grains of powder. Others can't weigh in tenths of grains.
Everything's either cheap from China or cost as much as another Glock. Need ideas please.
