Re: sight modifications

2old2run, thanks for the kind words. I am still very happy with the setup and have had no second thoughts about how I could have done it better. Which for me is almost unheard of. I like the red dot sights a lot, but again there is that thing of electronics failing at the wrong time. There is a solu...

Re: reassembly help!!

Are you talking about the metal piece that holds the slide open on an empty magazine? If so, I frequently have to push it back into it's place and align it with the axis of the pistol before I can get my slide to go back on. I believe it is fairly normal as I had the same problem with a PA-63 which ...

Re: Ballistic Gelatin

Agar-agar is the gelatin that is used for laboratory tests in petri dishes and that sort of thing to grow molds, spores etc. on. I have some experience with the stuff and it can be mixed up to a very credible denseness at about 8 parts gelatin to 1 part water. ut then again regular gelatin does as w...

Re: What is the Most Favored Wolff Recoil/Trigger Spring Com

I installed the 20lb recoil spring and 17lb hammer spring. I like the hammer spring weight very much, it made the DA pull useable. But others here have reported some problems with the mag falling out after the last round is fired using the 17lb hammer spring and it seems to be gun specific. I am hap...

Re: Need a new slide

I have not noticed much recoil reduction, although it does not seem to make the web of my hand as sore or red, so some benefit there.

Re: any one know what kinda 8mm this is and specs on it???

Is it a handgun or rifle round? Can you post some pics, that would be very helpfull. Is the bullet solid lead or FMJ? From the headstamp description I would guess it is a military round.
