  1. A TIGHT....well fitted bushing is your friend...too loose..bad repeatable lockup... Spring the gun with the spec'd weight.... do you reload..? Dor do you shoot factory 230grn ball?
  2. Its a regular volt mkiv series 80 with wilson grips.... Get rid of the full length guide rod....add nothing but trouble... The 1911 when properly sprung will not need shock buffs... will just foul the gun... Get a new recoil spring, new spring guide...and new barrel bushing... I may have some for you cept the spring.... Will assemble like a normal 1911..but the series 80 has a firing pin safety lever etc. Vids online. And the guide rod is upside down and the link looks to be mated with the guide rod..the tabs go against the barrel Where r u located?
  3. Cleaning some 30-40, then 308 ! I really wish i had a bigger one.... thumlers tumbler is too small !
  4. Two things, always keep factory on hand, to what amount is a good discussion... never use reloads for self defense...i subscribe to that thought..reloads are target shooting, gun games and hunting etc. If you need reloading help, contact me pm and i will shoot you my cell. Keep meticulous records.... Agree..... however, if God forbid we find ourselves in general open conflict, whether reloads or factory, will not matter ....imo at that point... Normal self defense in 'normal' times..factory rules...
  5. The South, essentially the South Carolinians, should have freed the slaves - then fired on Sumter. States rights matter, and what the Anti Federalists feared came to fruition and is true today more than ever. When I hear politicians talk about majorities, and majority shall rule...i think to Jefferson. Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States, expressed this concept of democracy in 1801 in his First Inaugural Address. He said, All . . . will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect and to violate would be oppression. https://www.annenbergclassroom.org/glossary_term/majority-rule-and-minority-rights/
  6. That what a friend of mine said as well - I use 2400 at 16-17 grains in 30 cal cast lead....seems to be ok and mild for 100yd plinking. Did read that trailboss was popular back in the day as well - pics of primers...seems somehow these were stored in a not so nice way. Never saw an old primer just do what these look like
  7. These are 100% reloads - I will post additional pics later - I broke some rounds down to see powder weights etc. The corrosion in case and in the primers was amazing.... they are not good as is, but the brass and heads will be. The old adage is true - do not trust anyone else's reloads.... Still, that powder is curious ! Like little doughnuts !
  8. No joy..tried based in description...amazing site...good data
  9. ....so old school 30-40 rounds.... 165/168 grain lead cast head..gas checked... This is about 25.55 grains... never saw this kinda powder before... Trying reverse engineer the round to see if i have to break em all down or may be legit. I will prolly break em down anyway...but ... And...you can see those big 220's.... ooofah.
  10. They do *NOT* have to essentially ban the firearm - they can make them expensive clubs - tax the ammo, make the ammo hard to get - make it so cost prohibitive you will cause shooting to be generationally a moot point. Some smart ass once said this on this forum a long time ago - want to get rid of guns - target the ammo. It is coming true. Think of this like the war on big tobacco - how did they win and continue to win? - Cost - only the most diehard (no pun intended) smokers will pay the vig to keep smoing - Taboo - re-education of the youth - make shooting seem not acceptable - just like they dig with tobacco - Legislation - you do not need to go to outright bans, they take it step by step to make the exercise of that right harder and harder with more and more hurdles and locations to shoot. Target ranges with zoning ordinances... no place to shoot.... harder and harder to find a place to smoke without being ridiculed.. etc. We are the last of a dying breed - and unless we get off our asses, and educate the youth - we lose. The very losses we are experiencing today are the faults of those 30-40-50yrs ago to ingrain, the right of the people to keep and bear arms in the minds of the youth....... " If your plan is for one year plant rice. If your plan is for ten years plant trees. If your plan is for one hundred years educate children. ”
  11. Within reason...... - I do not think we have seen the ceiling yet
