Default Got My Parts

Well I got my parts im very very dissapointed with them i had my gun store order the parts for me so im gonna go and get the name of the company and sent them a letter. when i got the safety disconnect i had to grind down part of it because there was a peice that dident belong on the part and the sear for it was coverd in some kind of grime that i had to clean off and polish it up a little bit. wish i would have taken a pic of the disconnect. and after all of this i think that matt g may be right about the ammo. i got it put back together and i was working the slide by had with out ammo. and every few pulls of the slide and the hammer would not hold. i beleive that thoughts were the times that i dident quite get the slide all the way back and the hammer was not catching the sear. I will find out when i get to take it out and shoot it right now were haveing a bit of a blizzard so ill let you guys know how it go's. Im gonna get a different brand of ammo and see what happens with the both of them. Thanks guys for all the help and ill update you all when i get to shoot it. Anthony

Hi. Does anyone have tips for a suppressor bbl for the 1903 .32? Are there any extended, threaded bbls out there, or must one make his own? Looks to me like I could bore-out and tap the muzzle, then make a male-to-male adapter. Thanks.

Roys101, Welcome to the forum. We have an area called "Introductions". Stop by and say "Hi".

Now, why would you consider ruining such a fine pistol in its old age?
Barrels already threaded for a suppressor? I don't think you will find one.

And I would suggest that you get the okay from BATF for the suppressor before even a trial fit. They monitor this site, and can get the info needed to track you down.

Boring the barrel is not a good idea. There is a crown on the barrel and removing the crown will have a detrimental affect on accuracy. It is not a good idea to install a suppressor and then have the bullets yaw and destroy the inside of the suppressor. Plus the remaining material will not be strong enough to support a suppressor if you bore out and tap.

My suggestions? Sell the gun, buy one with a threaded barrel, get the okay from the BATF for a suppressor, and have fun once you are legal.

Just picking up with Matt g As a Hi-Point owner on that forum there is a lot of negative chatter about Winchester white box ammo. You might try federal or another brand.
