This CZ i just acquired here is the only gun i've bought in almost a 3 year span. Glad i could find it since alot of gun stores in my area don't seem to carry any CZ's at all. It's nice to have something a little more modern than a Colt 1903 at any rate.

That is super cool. I like the little blue designs you put in them. Kind of reminds me of the scene in Jeremiah Johnson where an arrow with paint bands hits a tree in front of Bear Claw and Jeremiah when they're hustling after detecting what they suspect are Crow tracking them when Bear Claw takes one look at the arrow and just goes "Yep, Crow".

I've actually been researching around to finally get some arrows through work for my recurve for next archery hunting season (September). I was pretty set on traditional cedar arrows, but I've decided to treat it like I load my ammo and go with function over form since I'd like to do as much recreation shooting as time allows, but will primarily be tuning this for elk and deer backpacking trips.

I ended up settling on the Easton "Traditional" axis arrows which are 5mm carbon fiber, but have a wood wrap on them that is much like the Easton Cedar arrows from way back in the day. When not practicing at work/in the field I was going to use some mean looking "Grizzly" broadheads with a single bevel. Been glancing at some stuff by a "Dr. Ashby". Seems like he's a bit of a P.O. Ackley for archery. Pretty interesting stuff regarding terminal effects in relation to arrows and broad heads if anyone gets the chance.

I actually had the opposite experience with carbon. For whatever reason, my carbon arrows suck compared to traditional arrows. Possibly from poor tuning, but they seem to fly far more erratically.

My carbons have a stuffer spine than the traditional arrows I have used, yet they act like they are under spined! I don't get it!

Also, I take it back, fletching tape is so much faster than glue.

I'm filled with the need to fill a void in my collection (and life): I want a high quality shotgun.

This quest started with trying to find (or make) a suitable classic looking Ithaca 37 (either already SBS, or make it into one). That didn't go anywhere. Ithaca doesn't export to euroland, and I'm having trouble finding a suitable donor gun to SBS (or even to find someone willing to SBS the gun for me since due to regulations it has to be reproofed etc, meaning paperwork & wasted time going to the test bench/proof house which would cost more than the actual cutting & refinishing).

Other alternatives were visited:
Browning has an Ithaca sibling, so that was the first stop. Various features and components were not really to my liking though, missing that special M37 look.
Mossbergs have a handy lefty friendly safety, so I looked at those next. Turns out their finish is really shitty.
Remingtons, well, let's not even go there. I've seen too many Remington things fail in the past 10 years that I'm not willing to touch them anymore.
Winchester was next. SXP is a basic no nonsense shotty made in Turkey, but turns out it's actually has more than it's share of problems if jewtoob is to be believed. Including at least two instances of slamfiring with the safety on. So that's out.

With time, interests shifted and eventually brought me to the Benelli M3 Tactical (~20", ghost ring sights, classic stock) & Benelli M3 Entry (~14", ghost ring sights, usually telescopic stock). Because why the fuck not? It's both a pump and a semi, filling two needs at once.

Indeed. I wanted to point it out because I haven't often seen people mention that when discussing one pump shotgun over another when the purpose of the gun is specified.

>3 1/2"
I particularly like the 3 1/2" turkey loads. Kent, Federal, and Winchester amongst others make the 2 1/4 ounce at 1150 to 1250ft/s from those shells. These days I've been shooting quite a bit of the Kent Diamond 2 1/4 ounce from my buddy's 870 Supermag.

I tell ya it's a wild ride, but cycling that action is like left-hand jab practice.

Fair enough, and if I had something I don't like I suspect (as in the case of the gen1 LCP) I'd have no problem getting rid of it for something else.

I guess its more of a general go-by than a rule, but now I try to just stick with things that I really want.

They are such fun though, even if they do bite a little.

I recently acquired a 12 gauge Remington Model 11 from 1928 w/ a 26" barrel and Poly-Choke. She's a little rough around the edges and a true working girl. I'm going to chop her down, but I can't decide how. Do I take her back to 18.5" and tube extend'er, AOW ala Bonnie and Clyde "Whippet" (see pic), or keep the stock and chop the barrel one shell length north of the mag tube?

My safe has other shotguns for hunting and home defense; this was more of a spur-of-the-moment, let's do something fun and different for a change acquisition.

That'll put the barrel at around 14" which would have excellent indoor point-ability. Obviously ATF papers would be in order, lest I'd have to adopt a dog.

Also isn't there some fiddling you have to do to the gas system on these (Model 11 and A4s) to make them cycle correctly when you chop the barrel?
>> No. 103177 ID: 6057a8
Model 11s should be long recoil, the gun might cycle a little harder with less barrel, but IIRC these guns have friction rings to adjust cycling. Not sure a bit less barrel it'll make that much difference to begin with, the front end of a shotgun barrel doesn't weigh that much.

Not long ago I picked up a Gen 2 G17 with a lot of miles on it for, if not a song, then a few pages from an old songbook.

I took it to the range, and the first thing I noticed was lots of ejection problems. A Glock armorer looked at it and said the factory recoil spring guide was broken, the recoil spring--possibly non-original--was crusted with carbon and had bits of scaly rust falling off it, and also had a nasty bend in the middle; he also said the extractor plunger was put in the wrong way, preventing the extractor from pivoting properly.

One Glock factory recoil spring and a reinstalled extractor plunger, I took it to the range. And got brass to the face, more than 50% of the time. If it doesn't hit me in the face, the brass barely trickles out of the ejection port and falls at my feet.

I asked the gunsmith and he said that since the cartridges were coming out, it wasn't an extractor problem, and that maybe the ejector was worn.

One factory replacement trigger housing with ejector, plus new factory extractor spring, plus new factory extractor later... the gun still gives me brass to the face over half the time, with four different kinds of factory ammo.

A second gunsmith said that I was "limp wristing the gun," because muh Glock perfection. I do not, incidentally, have this problem with other handguns I own. This was at another establishment that had an indoor range, so I invited him out to shoot it himself. It gave him brass to the face over half the time, then he let me shoot the last mag out of it while he watched. I'm not limp-wristing it, but it gives me brass to the face over half the time, including one that hit the magic angle to drop over the back side of my shooting glasses to give me a nice blister on my left eyelid.

He hemmed and hawed and said that the gun is "old" (it has all new springs in it, including a new Zev trigger) and that maybe the factory recoil spring is too much and maybe I should chop a dozen or so coils off it (what about muh Glock Perfection?) and that maybe I should shoot only the hottest surplus 9mm SMG ammo I can find in it--only it's 2016 and war surplus subgun ammo isn't really a thing any more.

So, is there anything else to do with the gun? Sell it cheap on Armslist? Trade it in on something else? Wait for the next mass-shooting panic sellers' market and try to get my money back out of it?

I'm not sure how closing a slide on a loaded mag would be any easier than closing a slide with no mag. That said, I wouldn't be surprised if the guns were new and needed to break in a bit.
>> No. 99059 ID: 86d09e
>I'm not sure how closing a slide on a loaded mag would be any easier than closing a slide with no mag.

Because it tends to be the mag spring which pushes up the slide lock in most designs? On a loaded mag, there would be no mag spring pressure on the slide lock as the bullets prevent the follower from engaging with the slide lock.

Personally, I always sling shot in stress situations and usually only use the slide lock for manual lock backs.
The exception being my Beretta 87 Target, which has a huge slide lock lever and is easy as hell to operate (and reach).

wize fwom ya gwave!

Due to an excess of RL stuff, it was only a few weeks ago that I finally got the chance to send the pistol back to Glock.

They shipped it back the same day they received it, with a letter saying they replaced ejector, extractor, extractor spring, firing pin, striker, disconnector, and gave me a new replacement for the beat-up factory Glock mag I sent with the gun.

I took it to a range, fired 150 rounds, and got brass to face, again.

I asked around and it was suggested that I try Winchester "NATO" 9mm, which is apparently pretty stoutly loaded. With Winchester "NATO" 124gr ball ammo it lofts the spent brass over my head instead of smacking me in the face. It has been recommended that I shoot an additional 500-1000 rounds so that the ejector, extractor, and recoil spring can wear in and the ejection pattern can change to something more consistently away from my face. In the meantime, I've found that some production lots of Tula steelcase 9mm mimic the ejection pattern of the hot "NATO" ammo, so that is what I will be using for practice in the hopes of breaking the gun in and making it somewhat usable.

It's still annoying, and most of my preferred 9mm defensive loads are 147gr (Gold Dot, Ranger-T), which have a softer recoil impulse and are in this particular gun more prone to giving me brass-to-face.

I fixed my Gen 3 G19 brass to face by buying a Gen 4 trigger housing with ejector, pulling out the Gen 4 ejector with my fingers (some guys use tape covered pliers), and transplanting it into my Gen 3 trigger housing. No more brass to face even with mousefart plinking loads.
