Re: Ruger 57

Curious as to whether the Ruger and/or the CMMC Banshee require lacquered cases like the FN or if they will function with cases with no remaining lacquer?

Re: Masterpiece Arms MAC-10 5.7x28mm

Mine likes the Pro Mags but not the FN factory mags for some reason. The FN mags don't want to insert. I've always considered Pro Mags as junk compared to the FN mags so there is a place for them I guess.

Re: Anyone loaded the 34gr Dogtown FBHP bullets?

That's a great point about how anemic the factory rounds tend to be. I guess the exceptions would be the SS192 and the SS198 loads. I have the latter for SD and its a honker!

Re: Anyone loaded the 34gr Dogtown FBHP bullets?

Be careful crimping, especially when working with hot loads as it can send to pressures into the red very quick. In fact, I'd start without the crimp & check for signs of overpressure. Then move into the crimp if you're ok with it. Personally, I'm too paranoid about a kb to use crimps on this round...

Re: AR57 GEN 2 UPPER DOES NOT FIT

My first AR57 upper had the same problem to some degree. At first I thought it was the tensioning pin on my Sun Devil lower so I kept moving it down to no effect. The rear takedown pin would partially go in so I just "tapped" it in with my plastic no-mar hammer. Always had to use a plastic drift to ...

Re: Got my shipment of 4 PS90 magazines...

I just bought a 30 round factory FN mag on line and wonder how it is blocked? Can it be converted to 50?

Little Dandy rotor for True Blue?

Anyone used a Little Dandy powder measure to get 5.2 gr, 5.6 gr and 6.0 gr of True Blue? If so, what rotors do you use? I use that load for different bullets.

Re: Case taper and coating

Just checked cases sized in my Hornady Custom Grade New Dimension dies and they mic 3.12 at the base and .310 at the shoulder. I assume that is OK? Is the issue with the coating strictly of importance in the PS90 and AR57 using the 50 round mags or is it an issue in the FNH handgun as well. I have b...

Re: Free Tactical Light with Five Seven Purchase

Talked to a customer service woman and she said the LED fronts would not be available until after the first of next year. Said they only sell to their distributors in any event!

Re: Free Tactical Light with Five Seven Purchase

Any word as yet if the tactical light can be upgraded with the high intensity LED. I got an email back in the Summer from Insight that they were expected to be available in Sept/Oct....Never heard further and it just crossed my mind to check again.

Re: Dillon 550 loading

Would like some feedback from some who have used these 550 shell plates. Wonder if the small size of the cartridge causes any issues, ie "wobbling", etc. What powder funnel from Dillon works? Thanks to all.

Re: Free Tactical Light with Five Seven Purchase

Got mine today and the light's focus seems fine, ie no dead spot, etc.

Can another bulb be substituted to enhance performance?

Re: Free Tactical Light with Five Seven Purchase

Sent my paperwork in approx 5-6 weeks ago and nothing on the rebate tracker. Called their customer service yesterday AM and left a message. Nothing!

Can't feel too good about the FNH customer service at this point....

Re: New here and need help with my AR57 Upper

I have my AR57 upper mounted on a Sun Devil lower and I have to use a plastic hammer to drive in the rear pin and use a brass punch to drive it out! Tolerances are for crap from what I'm seeing. I have 2 other uppers that fit the Sun Devil lower perfectly.
