  1. Sig P210 Target Don't you hate when you give people two choices and they recommend a third? At least I stuck with Sig. My natural inclination was to say a S&W Model 929. Adios, Pizza Bob
  2. If you just Google Hi Standard magazines you'll get plenty of hits. IIRC, and I'm working solely off memory here, there are two basic types of Hi Standard mags. The ones for the military grip angle, like are used on the Victor and then the ones for guns that preceded the Victor, which had a steeper angle. I have a Hi Standard Model 102 a Supermatic Citation... I believe that your Model B would take the more steeply angled mags like my 102. Adios, Pizza Bob
  3. Girlfriend had a 2004 Forester XT for 10 years. I always found that the seat cushions were too short - not enough under-thigh support and I'm not that tall. Adios, Pizza Bob
  4. Just because he's tall doesn't mean that you can't have a small, fuel-efficient car. The Toyota Matrix and its sister vehicle the Pontiac Vibe are able to accommodate tall people with both headroom and legroom. The Matrix can also be had with AWD. When I was in the biz, I had many dealers tell me that they sold the Vibe because it was the only car that would fit their outsized customers. Certainly can be had in the price range quoted. Adios, Pizza Bob
  5. Wicens range in Furlong, PA, is a pay to play public range. You will be required to qualify before they will let you shoot. And, just like any range you are likely to encounter, you will probably be confined to shooting paper targets. If you want interactive targets, consider taking up some form of competitive shooting. Knock-down steel, static steel, IDPA, USPSA. That may satisfy your urge to shoot something other than static paper targets. Adios, Pizza Bob
  6. When I shoot long guns, which is seldom anymore, I have the one-hole disease and I use this front rest... Caldwell Rock BR with a rabbit-ear rear bag. Adios, Pizza Bob
  7. Shufly: Ran across this on another forum and thought you might find it interesting... Not a Smolt... https://vicknairgunsmithing.blogspot.com/search/label/Pistolsmithing This guy does some amazing work. What really surprised me was that he is relatively close-by - that is, within easy driving distance. I figure this cost between $5000 and $5500 - just a guess. Adios, Pizza Bob
  8. Case hardened or color case hardened? Am I missing something here? I also seriously doubt that you will ever get any ROI or even break even on a Smolt. The best is to buy one already built and let the original owner take the hit. OTOH, I don't buy guns as an investment - they are a poor one - I buy them because I like them. Will they go up in value? Hopefully, but that's not the point. If you are after a color case hardened gun, check out offerings from the S&W Heritage Series. Here's my Model 24-5 (.44 S&W Special) The CCH on these was done by Doug Turnbull - the best in the business. Adios, Pizza Bob
  9. There are several that I could recommend, but my perspective is from a DA revolver, not sure about their experience with SA revolvers. It may be something simple, in which case they could easily handle it. But if it is a malady specific to SA revolvers, it should be done by a SA specialist. For diagnosis and evaluation of the complexity of repair: Pinnacle High Performance in Quakertown, PA. I' d call first and see if he even wants to be involved. If yes, it is easily drivable. While I haven't used Mark at PHP, I know a number of people that have and are very satisfied. If it requires a specialist, there is a Colt SA repair & restoration specialist named David Lanara in Ohio. I have no experience with him, so do some due diligence. Adios, Pizza Bob
  10. Griz: The more of your posts I read the better I like you. I was always of the opinion that everyone needs to own a British sports car at some point in their lives - it's a humbling experience. For my father it was a TR3. My ex-wife a Spitfire. My ex-BIL an MGA (that konked out in the middle of the Holland Tunnel). My best friend an Austin Healey 3000 MkII and my first car was a 1958 Austin Healey 100-6. They introduce you to things like: Lucas - Prince of Darkness and hitting the fuel pump with a hammer, as well as Whitworth wrenches and wire wheels. Ah, those were the days. So what was your masochistic dalliance - T-series, A, B, C. Midget? Adios, Pizza Bob
  11. Thank you for the compliment....seem?? Never really had any desire to go down the Frankengun road. Ask yourself: To what end? Other than cosmetics I really don't see the point, it's expensive and garners no benefit. Take the money you would spend on a project like that and have 586/686 fully worked. Take the change and buy ammo so you can become proficient. Given what Pythons are going for these days, the barrels are probably selling for twice what they are actually worth too. If I haven't talked you out of this idea, I'd look into Pinnacle High Performance in Quakertown, PA as a gunsmith who could undertake such a conversion. He's good and has the added benefit of being close enough that you could transport the gun to and from, which could save you a considerable amount. Adios, Pizza Bob
  12. I'm confused. If his property was seized by the Monmouth County sheriff's department (as per the lawyer's letter), why is he seeking redress from the Mercer county prosecutor. Not too impressed with the lawyer's letter either. Adios, Pizza Bob
  13. The charge is for the Non-Criminal Background check. Since this is your son's initial application he will have to pay for the fingerprinting which includes the background check. Once he has his FPID anytime he applies for permits (once he's 21) he'll have to pay also. Adios, Pizza Bob
  14. I can't imagine that a gun set-up for SWC's (assume like H&G 68's) would not feed ball. Although if it is set-up for bullseye, you may want to change the recoil spring first. I used to shoot IPSC with Les back in the mid-80's. Adios, Pizza Bob
