Re: Spring Rate Musings

Yes, recoil springs do have an impact on possible rate of fire whether or not you shoot fast. I was comparing it to a performance upgrade, and also a way to build/relieve pressure. You have a chrono? Take a few measurements with factory loads between the few springs. Higher velocity should equate to...

Re: Spring Rate Musings

Right. You have increased pressures due to the length of the barrel, and shoulder length increases due to the higher pressures. Now you have to deal with the higher pressures without causing a catastrophic failure. Reduce pressures a hair faster? Dont compare the handgun to the rifle. Longer barrel ...

Re: Spring Rate Musings

You're measuring how its performing based on shoulder movement of the casing. Not cycle rate, ballistics, or anything else handguns are normally measured on. From the sounds of it the spring has been lightened(pretty common with handguns) decreasing the time the casing spends in the chamber allowing...

Re: FN9 Long Slide - Slide Release

If you're running competitions with a gun don't be afraid to take a dremel to it and modify it as you need. If you're worried about resale don't. In my early days of competing with glocks I would take 2 pairs of pliers and bend my slide release out where it was easy to hit. Other then that practice ...

Re: is ss197 hard to come by these days?

Cabelas recently jacked up their ammo prices. The 5.7 and .40 I use to buy there is running 3-4 dollars higher then other places around town. The .22lr they've had has been 2-3$ higher.

“It is not necessarily something you’d want on a school building,” said Paul Enderle, a superintendent in Oak Lawn. “But it correlates with the law, and I think if it ultimately helps to keep schools safe, that’s the objective.” Exactly. We'll keep the schools safe from legally carrying adults with...

Great price but not sure if I want to bother with them.
Came as ordered and the shipping was quick. Great price I'd give them another shot.

Re: ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN dropped from Feinstein's Bill

They split the bill so that it would be more likely to pass. They took off the specific fire arms banned, and left magazines with capacity over 10 rounds and a whole bunch of other stuff. Pretty much just a nastier version of the last one. The reasoning was so that more conservative dems and dems fa...

I'm pretty sure they were around at one point in time. Holster companies list them. I've personally shot a g35c on multiple occasions. Looks like the pic rap posted

Re: Welp, looking for a second pistol.

Yep C is the designation for ported. Poor choice for home defense. You get a bright flash out of the top of the gun in the dark. Its pretty blinding depending on the ammo. Also the cut in the slide allows dirt/debris to fall right in. If your wanting a full size 9mm check out the glock 17. Its a hai...

Re: Welp, looking for a second pistol.

I'll throw my 2 cents in because your also a lefty. If I had to choose only 1 gun it would be a glock. The 34 is huge though, and it probably wouldnt be that one. Mine are gen 3 I put an extended mag release in them and actuate it with the third pad on my index finger. I also use my index finger(whi...
