  1. Brass looks normal? No abnormalities? Seems like something is slowing down the slide velocity or there is a burr or something in the chamber or the rails perhaps? If you take pics and post em. Others with keener eyes might notice something out of whack too.
  2. Take a look at the XD45. People seem to praise them. If you don't like the grip safety then just have it pinned.

    Dry fire question

    Only time dry firing could cause ill for your weapons is if it's a rim fire gun or a very old weapon. I would say pre-60s. Rim fire u can peen the chamber causing rounds to not chamber or eject properly or you could damage the firing pin. Also Pre-60s and beyond firearms the metallurgy wasn't what it is today and thus dry firing "could" damage components but using a dummy round will prevent most potential danger. I dry fire my cz 75 all the time. You wouldn't notice it.
  4. If it's going to be a range toy and HD. A potential option to shoot for is a full size cz75 or SP-01 then also get the kadet adapter. Kadet doesn't need a p2p so that saves you some hassle and you can get 2 guns basically in under 30 days. It's much more reliable than most other drop in solutions. I love my setup on my sp-01 tactical. Otherwise, G17 or G19 is simply the easiest way to go and has the best aftermarket suppose if you decide to spruce it up.
  5. I just got my hands on a pretty k31 after I fell in love with the straight pull action of a close friends k11 and from what everyone has told me, a k31 should be a tack driver and I feel it is appropriate to get it fitted for a scope. However, I do not want to do anything permanent to the rifle so I was looking at the no gunsmithing mounts for k31s and just wondered what other fellow lefties felt about the mount. Thanks for any insight you guys(and maybe ladies) can impart to me.
  6. Totally thought SS was referring to stainless steel was about to say... wtf. But now i get it...
  7. And if you want a polymer gun, check out the p09 which is a full length polymer cz or the p07 version 2 which is the compact cz. Version 2 has front cocking serrations and replacable backstraps to tell it apart. What's nice is that they come with 15rd magazines standard. The older p07 had 16rds so you would have to get the neutered 10 rd mags.
  8. I would just goto a shop and hold both. It really depends on what's more comfortable. 19 might make a better all round gun if you only want one gun. Small enough for carry/hide around the house for HD, good enough for plinking, and recoil isn't that terrible, its not the size of the sub compacts so not like its hard to keep a grip on it. 17 is just a little bigger so might be better if you are caring about accuracy (tho that's a moot point) and recoil impulse will be about the same cause while the 17 has a bigger frame it also has a bigger slide. So kind of evens out and what differences there is isn't very noticeable.
  9. Could be that you may just have a slight burr on the slide. If it is it'll wear away before it ever affects the barrel itself.
  10. Definitely no polymer guns, small steel framed ones would work, but soup nazi is definitely right if u want total reliability.
  11. I vote p07 but make sure u get the version 2 model. Has replaceable backstraps, slight modifications to the overall carry size and I believe its a 15rd mag standard some had 16 rd capacities. http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2014/09/jeremy-s/cz-p07-then-vs-now/ Heres a good comparison article.
  12. Do you know the limits of your grip? Can you handle a 9x19 (standard 9mm)? If not you can look into either a 380acp or 9mm Makarov. A polish p64 is a great kind of small HD gun. There is a good amount of high quality HD rounds as well as dirt cheap steel cased stuff to practice with. The smaller size of the gun should let you easily get a good controlling grip on it while also it being very rugged and pretty cheap. You can sometimes snatch them up for under 300-250 dollars.
  13. You can get the original front handles from the carved wood or you can put on a rail system or some hogue grips that have the rails on the bottom for relative cheapness. However with a grip on the front you may draw attention. It isn't illegal as it's still registered as a rifle but if people think its a pistol (which i think all are illegal in NJ because of weight/shroud) and a front handle on a pistol is a no go in any state of the union far as i know, you may run into people giving you crap about or at least trying to...
  14. Id say bluing is prettiest and also can reduce a lil glare depending on the coating. SS is easily the easier one to maintain the same look of. Everyone has accidents and "derp" moments and finishes chip or scratch, it's life. If your lazy about maintaining the gun then SS is safest as it is naturally rust resistant even without a coating. Keyword resistant tho, it can still get rust.
  15. Though if someone can find me a silver pigeon for 1k when I have the funds ready I'm all for that haha.
  16. Yeah I've kept an eye on the a300s and the xtremas from Beretta too. My budget ATM is relatively low not so much due to finances but more so not wanting to drop large funds into something that I may become dissatisfied with and just be another hobby that I just let myself be suckered into if u know what I mean. I have a friend who has a silver pigeon, I really like it, but again don't want to drop 2kish on something I may put down a year or later or so. A crummy habit but I know I've done it in the past.
  17. I have been getting deep into sporting clay games but as of now all I have is my benelli nova which I love dearly but doing 2 birds at once is real tough with a pump. I wish to move into a semi and I've always been a benelli nerd so I have had my eyes set on the m2 field but I know the stoeger ms are based around the intera system though its slightly different. Curious to know what kind of use and longevity people are getting out of their stoegers because I'd enjoy getting into a cheaper semi first then maybe moving into a benelli later on. Thanks.
  18. If I had a use for a sub compact I would probably get a shield, I shot one and I enjoyed it for what it was. If CZ Ramis would single stack I would totally prefer one of those.
  19. For that price get a tactical sport. http://cz-usa.com/product/cz-75-tactical-sport-9mm-dual-tone-20-rd-mags/
  20. I would say the scout mount is the only way to go. It lets you still use your irons. I don't know if you can co witness with it but if you can def do that as well. Its an easy and non perm install. Forgot to include:
  21. Easiest way to know: Overall length 26" or more. Barrel length 16" or more. Those are the only measurements to worry about.
  22. Ah very good, thanks I will contact them today.
  23. I have a hand me down 088 and while I love it, it doesn't have a specific use for me atm. I have a benelli nova pump that I do 99% of my shotgun shooting with unless I feel like specifically messing around with the old 088. I however have been looking for info but can't seem to find any on rifled slug barrels for these shotguns. I'd love to turn this into a fun slug gun so if anyone had any info please let me know. Keep in mind the gun was free so even if the barrel is the price of a modern equivalent... I'm still up in money on the deal. Thanks.
  24. Thanks I appreciate that info. I was looking for a neat period piece more for the looks but still deemed usable. As for an accuracy build I'd likely look at building an ar. But if tho plans fall thru for the future I'll keep that name in mind if I decide to turn my am into a downrange heavy hitter.
  25. The comb comes up too high. So anything that resembled the original m70 wood is just gonna punch you in the jaw each and every time so as someone else said getting it altered is the only way outside of getting an adapter plate and using ak parts thats assuming they make a yugo to akm adapter. I didn't bother and went the cheaper route and got a tapco stock.
