The purpose of this thread is to post dirty guns.

Mention how many rounds were fired through them, what type of ammo was used and how hard they were to clean.

Bonus points (but not required) for additional info.

0 malfunctions with ball. Ever. Though that is the standard line I kind of go by. Feed a Glock Ball, and you will never have a problem. Ever.
YMMV
In the mags .. Win RA45T .. they do just fine as well.

I posted these a while back. My grandfathered S&W 2206 probably was never cleaned since my dad bought it back in the mid 90s.

A probably needless tutorial, but content is content.

Step 1: Assemble the shit you need:

1. Gun
2. New grips
3. High quality precision screw driving tool

How do the new grips compare to the old - do they have the same profile? Is the checkering difference noticeable?
>> No. 2103 ID: 6efaef
>>2102

Slightly thinner, which is neither here nor there. The checkering is better than the plastic, which to me always felt a little slick.

What I really didn't like about the plastic grips is that sometimes when shooting I could sort of feel them flex and bend. That may be more a function of the single screw attachment than the material, but if I can get away from that I would be happy.

Another topic that probably doesn't need to be gone through, but in case you ever need to do this, here's how.

Yes my other desk is messy as fuck, don't judge.

So the Sig Mosquito is kind of a shitty gun. I picked this one up here on Opchan and took it out to the range a couple of times. As the internet states, it does not enjoy a wide range of ammo, and pretty much only shot reliably with CCI.

Another thing that the internet says, is that Gemtech's replacement barrel solves this problem, and is threaded in a standard dimension as well in case a silencer is desired (we will see).

So, I asked Gemtech if they planned on making any more of them, and they said "maybe". I signed up for email alerts and a few months later they sent an email saying they had exactly 23 barrels, one of which I purchased.

Note: This thread was originally posted by me December 2011 and lost in the Great Fiasco. I now present it again in its entirety.

So I just reloaded all my loose 7.5x55 Swiss brass. Let's start from the beginning.

Here's my bench, made from 2x6 cutoffs and a couple of 2x4's. 30"tall x 4' long x 2' wide, screwed together, glued, reinforced and sealed with a couple of coats of polyurethane.

>> No. 3681 ID: 9a4cd1
Great posts would you mind detailing the process one might go through to determine the proper powder to use for a particular cartridge? I'm looking to build a precision rifle in .260rem and haven't had too much trouble choosing most components other than powder. Is there any major factors to consider when choosing the appropriate brand and etc?
>> No. 3682 ID: f1f2a8
>>230
you need to consider burn rate, energy density and load density, costs and availability. you won't get insight into most of those without trying or quickloading, so the easiest way is to search for recommendations of experienced loaders.
>> No. 3683 ID: d07210
Don't have any reloading equipment, but I am saving my GP11 brass for when I have some.

A fudd at the range told me I can't reload GP11 ammo because they use Berdan primers.

Is he full of shit?
>> No. 3684 ID: 42e9c9
>>251
you can reload berdan primed cases. there are several approaches from simply priming with berdan primers again to converting the case to boxers. you'll figure out the most practical solution when it's time.

So, my Colt used to belong to my dad before he gave it to me as payment. It's a post ban and had a pinned brake and bayoless FSB. It also had an old(late 90s) ugly, heavy, out of spec rail on it.

I wanted to put regular handguards on it. So I dremeled around the pin on the muzzle brake, it wasn't welded, and pulled the pin out with a vice grip. It came out fine, with no damage to the barrel, and I put a plain Phantom flash hider on it. I then went to take off the FSB and it was being a major bitch. Turns out the gunsmith put the damn taper pins in the wrong way. I checked it with a caliper and they were definitely in backwards. Anyway, I dremeled those fuckers out and now I'm going to pick up a regular FSB with a bayo lug.
>> No. 2010 ID: 1341b4
Don't take anything for granted. There's a "usual" direction for the taper pins. But there are so many damn exceptions, I wouldn't bother trying to remove them without checking first.

In fact, Smith & Wesson ream their M&P rifles in the opposite direction as the vast majority of people.

They also install with a 20 ton press or something. Shit is tighter than hell. Ask me how I know...

Thank you for the link got some of the STL file downloaded but it's made in Solidwork 2013 don't have that version... yet

I was thinking what about getting his files and modify it to have these "casting plugs" (in red) in the trigger/hammer pin hole, trigger hole and fire select. So technically it would be an 80% lower which means someone can print it and "share" as 80%. All you have to do is cut out the plug clean up the hole carefully like a model kit.

Look what I picked up today, paid for it couple months ago. Call them Thursday and they say I can come pick it up. They had 5 nuggets left in the box so they just put them on the shelve and let me have the crate.

It barely fit in my Scion xB I had to scoot the front passanger seat forward a little for it to fit. It was kinda funny I walk in the gun store and there was a bunch people waiting for range, I walk up to the counter and told them I am here to pick up the crate and two of the people came out behind the counter and help me load it in to the car. It was all mysterious and everything.

I went back into the gun store looking around and one of the lady who was waiting ask me what's in the box?
me "Nothing... nothing at all" then I left.

Like a boss.
Shit made me laugh.

Personally (as a carpenter) I'd want to get a nugget crate as a camping box/table.

Just mount four solid legs onto it (fold up, screw on, however) and add folding table wings on the sides (so the lid can be cleared off to open more easily, and viola a great way to store shit in a table, be perfect to take camping.

That or I may just look for some scrap wood I can make a copy out of.

I took the mag disconnect safety out of my Hi Power today. While I was at the shooting range the trigger stopped resetting about half of the time and I had to manually pull the trigger forward to reset it.

So I took it down a few times at the range and, being unfamiliar with the Hi Power platform, took a little while to figure out what was wrong with it.

Turns out it was the magazine disconnect. I started suspecting it when I realized that when the trigger didn't reset, if I hit the mag release the trigger would then reset.

Nice HP.

Have you ever considered installing an SFS kit? No real reason to, but if I ever got an HP, I'd pull out the mag safety & put in an SFS, just for fun & mechanical novelty value.
>> No. 1609 ID: 601156
  When I took mine out I found this method much easier.

Only required taking off the slide, knocking out one pic, then wiggling the disconnect out through the mag well.
>> No. 1611 ID: c6755d

Thanks, thought about it but I like having it how it's meant to be. Maybe someday, though, seems like a cool idea for carrying it.

>>1609

I actually watched that video and tried it that way but I couldn't get it to come free. That's when I ended up having to take out the pins to get it to come out.

I think I was doing something wrong when trying to wiggle it out from the mag well? Not sure. Either way, I envy you being able to do it that way.
>> No. 1612 ID: 601156

I had to wiggle it around a bit, and slightly pull on the trigger to get it to maneuver into a better position, but didn't have too much trouble.

Can't blame you for removing the mag safety, I pulled mine from my HiPoint .45 months ago.

I bought a Glock 17 with the intention of reducing the grip. I may fuck it up royally or, I may get it reduced and my wife still doesn't like it. There is only a slim chance of success.

The gun should get here late next week. This pic is of my G19. I'm trying to figure out what can be relieved.

Does anyone have a M&P9 and a caliper?

Fiddling with anything above the magazine release is risky business if you ask me. I'd chicken out and talk with a professional about what exactly the problem is and what you'd like done and where.

Although I guess if you cock it up enough to mess up internals, you can just buy a replacement, aftermarket frame like the Lone Wolf Timberwolf or whatever.

The stuff above the mag release is going to be relieved equal the the already existing dip. There is a lot of extra plastic there. And I will probably only do it on the other side where her trigger finger goes. I just didn't have a good flipped over gun pic. This pic is a better example.

If I fuck it up I will consider trying a Timberwolf. I looked at them, but the thing that turns me off is no return policy. You are supposed to buy the thing and love it? You can't hold it anywhere, how can they expect people to like a gun sight unseen?

I know this isn't exactly fudd-central, but do any of you have any experience with a Browning A Bolt? My friend got one used, and low and behold, it's safety won't engage (as in, it's always on fire).
Apparently, this is a somewhat common problem, though often times reversed (safety won't switch off). I have googled and googled trying to find a way to fix her particular problem, with no results. She has called Browning, and they told her to send it in to them, or seek a licensed gunsmith.

Anyone have experience with this problem?
>> No. 1894 ID: 29caff
Just send it in? I suspect Browning will pick up the tab.

Check with them. Safety is not a matter to take lightly, even on a bolt action.
