i just bought this one a week ago from my brother, its a project for me but i am willing to dump in the money, maybe i can grab a cell phone pic later

1993 Ford broco , the tires alone just cost me $800 i was able to shave the front bumper a little bit and it cleared 33's

then next week some friends and i are taking its top off and bringing the seats to get re upholstered and then getting the inside sprayed with line-x....after its all put back together...then its off to the paint shop

I don't know much about the big body trucks. We only work on the 66-77's. Here is where I work, NICK'S TRIX ::: Early Bronco Restorations - Custom Fabrication - Ford Bronco 66-77

Range Report:

ok i am assuming this is a mag issue but the bullets would not load correctly quite a few times and i had to eject them and load the next one...also for the first 100 rounds, it seemed like i had to hit the slide release every 3rd round or so, it didn't shut on its own ,not sure what that was a bout, and about 200 rounds the slide stuck open completely and wouldn't shut....the slide release was all the way down too, i finally tapped it a few rough times and it shut, didn't give me a problem after that.....

in saying all that, the gun shot like a dream, very low recoil and accuracy pretty dead on here is a shot of 150 rounds in a target, i still prefer my colt over this dan wesson any day

can any one help me out with what my issues might have been on the slide? i stated when i bought the gun that the slide was hard to release in the first place (now she closes very smoothly, its not difficult at all to hit the slide release)

i am fixin to take her apart and clean her thoroughly

How far away was the target?

Was that the 1st 50, last 50, or ??????

What was the ammo, as that may be a cause of the load issues?
