slide

  1. Handguns
    I recently purchased a GSG 22 conversion kit for my Sig Tacops 1911 and the slide is now stuck closed. I did not even put a single round through it before this happened. There is maybe a quarter inch of play but other than that the slide is completely stuck closed, so I can't even get the slide...

    For a long time now I've had this question in the back of my head...and I've improvised in what I used, but never dove much further into researching it. With a few pistols in the cabinet right now, and another Glock--a 36--on it's way, I'm wondering what everyone uses and recommends for slide...

    I picked up a new gen 4 glock 19 a couple days ago and noticed the slide finish looked different. I took out my gen 3 glock 30 and compared the two. The 30 has the frying pan finish appearance and the 19 looks smooth and dull compared to it. Anybody else notice this? Must be something new I'm...

    I have a Kel Tec P11 and after not firing this gun for a few years, noticed a quirk in the slide. When the mag empties and the slide locks back, slide does not then return to forward position when pulled rearward, as it should. The slide release button seems to freeze in lock position. With the...

    While doing checking my 10/22, I noticed the bolt handle was stiff and decided to take the bolt off and add a bit of oil to the gun. Bolt decided to get stuck, so 5 minutes later I finally got that out. Added a touch of oil and attempted to put the bolt back on...for 30 minutes. I checked...

    "By BRADY McCOMBS Salt Lake City (AP) -- A massive landslide that halted operations at a major Utah copper mine last week was one of the largest in the history of open pit mining, an expert said Tuesday. The assessment came after Kennecott Utah Copper announced that 165 million tons of...

    From time to time I've seen threads on various forums complaining about the primer slide return spring on Dillon 550's. The factory spring works when everything is perfect, but doesn't return quickly enough on the upstroke when things are a little dirty, worn, or less than perfect. Replacing the...

    The law state that the frame is the actual firearm, but my slide has the serial number as does the frame. My gun may need a new frame, and I don't want to go through the hassle. Also, if I got caught carrying and the cop is a real douche as many ny cops can be about guns, would they try too...

    Any input on these ? Goo/ bad ?

    I just reassembled it and the first thing that went wrong is the rod that the spring is on (under the barrel) stuck out like an inch from the end. I pulled the slide back to disassemble and the thing just froze solid. I haven't tried hitting it with anything other than my hand, but the slide...

    Well, me being new to the world of pistols, I have a question for the ones that know more than me. I was told on one of my videos on YouTube that it isn't OK to close the slide with the slide lock (not manually letting it come forward slowly) letting the slide fly forward without a round in the...
  15. The AR-15
    So I didn't realize when I bought the 1st gen slide fire stock that it wouldn't be compatible with the magpul trigger guard. I really don't want to take the magpul off. Has anyone out there modified the stock at all by filing or grinding away the inside of the stock to allow it to slide over...

    I do not know how to detail strip a glock should I send it in to glock for repairs or attempt to replace it myself? Thanks guys.

    I was at Master Class this weekend and saw a Bushmaster AR pistol on sale there for 850.00. I also saw a video this weekend of someone who installed a Slide Fire Stock on a AR pistol. Would that be legal to do in New York. I know you cant put a forearm grip on a pistol in NY but what about a...

  19. Shotguns
    I often hear it repeated " Racking the slide on a shotgun will scare a assailant away. Lets dicuss the praticality of that statement. Sure it may work on petty burglar or a robber that sees a crime of opportunity. But what about a hardened armed criminal or team of escaped convicts/any other...

    Hey all, I just picked up a new Kahr PM9 on Wednesday and took it out and shot it for the first time yesterday. When I got done cleaning it I was looking it over and noticed a fair amount of faint reddish/brownish spots. Just curious to know if anyone has seen anything like this before on...
