lol nah, it's nothing illegal - I'd just rather not say in case he stumbles on this thread from Google. Funny enough I mentioned something like this one time on another forum and the guy who was...

Thanks for the opinions so far, found out it is a Gen 3 LE trade-in used for annual certifications (not an officer's carry piece). It has night sights, two 17 rd mags, and a 30 rd mag. I know people...

What's a Glock 17 worth?

Hey there Glock fans, I've had someone offer me a Glock 17 in trade for something I'm selling. I have a good grasp of the true worth of what I have, but wanted to know what a G17 is bringing these...

Thanks for the pointers everyone! I always load a single round with the mag, what I've been doing is removing the mag after the round is in the barrel so that's how it's falling out through the...

Seems like my last reassembly might have fixed it. I've cycled a dozen rounds and only had this problem happen three times now. This couldn't be related to any other issue like with how I rack the...

Alright, I took a bunch this time. Hopefully this will reveal something, I really don't like my primary defense weapon being inoperable and this is really frustrating to me (How can these simple...

It was just a field strip, didn't get any further than that. I can take a picture of it completely apart if that helps more, I've taken it apart and put it back probably 3 times now hoping one of...

I'm not sure which piece is the extractor specifically (I understand the general area it is in, but not sure which part is it specifically). I can tell you this, if I rack the slide back with the gun...

Not chambering rounds properly

So this is the first time I have field stripped my 1911 today. Actually a veteran 1911 owner did it for me, and even applied lubricant to the spots where they needed to be. I went home, and I've now...

Thanks guys, I am not totally opposed to the plastic - just afraid it would leave lots of scuff marks on the finish. If there are ones with a soft lining on the inside to prevent this, then I'm all...

Open Carry Holster for a Commander-size 1911

Hey guys, so I'm looking for an open carry holster for my commander sized 1911 - I planned to get a CCW but not for some time. In the meantime, I would like to have a way to have my firearm on my...

Sorry, I rented the G19 at the range. Most of the guns I've shot have been range rentals, since that's the best way I've had to familiarize myself with them. I bought the 1911 based on many factors...

Haven't tried any other mags, these are the factory Ruger metal mags so I'm a bit surprised that they would be the problem since it's what they shipped with the gun. I'd still like to try more break...

Thanks, that's really helpful. I don't doubt I'm probably flinching a bit and anticipating the recoil. I'm not sure if anyone else ever feels like this, but when I go to a range I always seem to jump...

Interesting, well fair enough. On the flip side, I wonder about some of the K98s that I see on GB with intact stampings - were those necessarily used, or just as likely to have a history much like...

Ok so I didn't actually remove the mag release as that's somewhat involved, but I tried it with empty and full mags. The empty mags really give it trouble. They're very stiff, and once they go in...

History of my Mosin Nagant

I bought a Mosin Nagant Hex head 91/30 made in I think '32, escapes me at the moment, a couple years ago for around $135. When I first shot it all was great and I had no issues, I didn't do anything...

Finally got to shoot at the range today. I ran 50 rounds of Federal 230 grain FMJ through it, I may just be holding it wrong or not used to the kick but I'm shooting to the left and high of where I'm...

It drops out just fine, it's just going in that it meets a bit of resistance at those two points. I'll give it some time before I adjust anything though.

Difficult to insert magazine

In the process of handling my new Ruger SR1911 Commander, I've noticed the magazines aren't the easiest to put in. These are the factory metal Ruger mags, so I doubt they're of poor quality. When I...

Got it, thanks all. How much did a box of say 100 rounds go for before all this madness and how much is it generally going for now? I'd like to make sure I'm not grossly overpaying for it. I thought...

I only did this for a minute in the house, just to see how it felt. I didn't go anywhere with it like that and never would. I have no ammo yet, so it was not loaded. I figure you have to give up...
