• Why does my 1911 bolt over base so often?

    I got myself a Colt series 70. Newer production, probably late 2016 early 2017. Got it as I want to shoot a 1911 not just have it as a collector like those overpriced CMP 1911's that you may shoot once every 2 years or so if that. It is one of my favorites so far. However it bolt over base jams. A lot. probably every 4 magazines unless I'm lucky. It's not the magazines; I have used 9 different magazines between Colt, Wilson Combat, Springfield and Kimber. Most of what I have are the expensive Wilson Combat ones. All 9 have been used while it jams. I do notice that it doesn't do it as much with aluminum cased ammo. Maybe 1 in 200 rounds. And I would thing the gun is plenty and properly lubricated and broken in since I have put 700 or so round through it. Almost all of it traditional 230 grain hardball. And no russian stuff either. It's diet is almost exclusively federal with some Sellior and Belliot and Blazer thwon in. It has jammed with ever brand. Any ideas?

  • What do I do if none of my questions are posting?

    Every single question I ask does not get posted. I’ll actually be surprised if this one does get posted. Because this is been happening consistently for two months.

  • Which handgun sight picture do you use?

    When you aim a handgun do you have the front site post right below your point of aim (6 o’clock hold) or the center of your front site post as the point of aim (point of aim = point of impact). Personally are use a point of aim style.

  • Should I get the MkIV or wait?

    I have been contemplating purchasing a Ruger MkIV Target model. I found one at a very good price of $380 since it has been sitting at the store; I plan on getting it next week.

    I have been contemplating purchasing a Ruger MkIV Target model. I found one at a very good price of $380 since it has been sitting at the store; I plan on getting it next week. However a neighbor of mine has an old Ruger Mkii Target model that I’d also like to buy. He says he has owned it for over 30 years and has never shot it once. Doesn’t even have a magazine for it. In fact the first time I inspected it was the first time it was handled by anyone in 18 years. It had been sitting in a bag in the same spot for nearly two decades untouched until I brought up the subject. He didn’t even know what it was until I told him. And as expected in an unused condition. I have offered to buy it off of him with a slightly low but fair offer of $350 and would go up to $400 but he’s very reluctant sell even though he has seemingly has no emotional attachment to it. He will probably take the offer but I suspect it will take several months maybe even a year or three before and I’m not going to push the matter. Not doing him any good; I would use it. Should I wait or just give up on the mkii and get the MkIV? I’d prefer the mkii; it’s an older model and I prefer the older guns but the MkIV is a better gun.

  • What’s a better buy? Ruger mkii Target blued in perfect condition or a new Ruger mkiv Target?

    Both would be around $350 so the price is negligible. Sure mkii assembly can be difficult but not impossible.

    Either a product or tool that you would not of thought of otherwise. For example, I use Tub O’ Towels cleaning wipes. First thing you think is “rust” but I haven’t gotten any from using it.

  • Is it possible to decrease the choke size of a shotgun barrel?

    And this would be on a barrel that cannot accept chokes. There are plenty of guides on how to increase choke size from for example a modified to cylinder bore. But what about the other way around? So for example and improved cylinder to a modified or full-size choke? I would probably have a gunsmith do it.

  • What is the highest end .22 rifle you have?

    High end as it is expensive primarily due to the quality, fit and finish not supply and demand due to it being older/discontinued. So it would have to either be still in production or discontinued recently.

  • Ever had to send a gun back to the factory?

    I've had to send a Henry back to the factory due to a bad barrel. Pretty good customer service, they replaced the barrel; and pretty much everything in front of the receiver end including the wood which had some slight dings on it and tube. Took less than 2 weeks to get it back.

The question is why. Now this doesn’t apply to all guns that you see, just a good portion of them. Or even when you go to your local gun store and you look at what they have and you always think it’s better than what you have simply because you don’t have it. Even if you have something of quality that would make your friends drool like a colt 1911, or a custom shop Smith and Wesson revolver or a $2000 AR 15. Why is that?

    Have some REALLY rusty leg traps. It’s not all surface rust otherwise I wouldn’t care so might as well do it right. I’m going to refurbish them and I know how to clean them up but not sure what kind of dye and wax I should use.

    There is a guy I know who has some older guns. Took them out for me to look at but he states he hasn't shot any of them for over 20 years. Wanted me to inspect and clean them due to them sitting for so long. One of them is a Thompson Auto Ordinance 1911. Probably early early to mid 1980's which I have seriously considered making him an offer on; unlike the others he doesn't have an emotional attachment to it. Appears to be in very good condition on the outside but I have yet to do a teardown to look at it. Hasn't bee cleaned or shot since the late 1980's. He trusts me enough to let me take it from him to so I can shoot it as he knows I will bring it back. But he does not have any magazines for it. I have looked around and while people are selling them for $500-$550 they sell for around $450-$500 but that's with the magazines. What do you think would be a fair offer given the situation?

I have been getting my stuff together for when I gor for it and have already saved up over $1,000 and will save up more since based upon what the CMP says I estimate they won t start taking orders until July/August. But I know even though it would be quite a thing to get; an investment that will go up in value and something of a centerpeice of my collection it won t be a shooter. Maybe something I take out once or twice a year and can barely group diner plate at 25 yards clamped in a vice without swapping out at least the barrel and bushing. Or should I go for a Colt Series 70 or Dan Wesson. I m expecting this to be a $1,000 to $1,300 thing either way not including the 2-3 cases of ammo I would also buy and I d like to do both but I don t have the ability to do both.

    I bring this up as ammo is now easy and somewhat cheaper to get these years later. I plan on getting a .45 1911 once I have $1,200 saved up and get 2,000 rounds for a bit more than $500. What I remember was when I was at Cabela’s in January 2013 I was looking for some .40S&W as that is what I primarily use; and since it is the least used of the big three per se they had several boxes still left. What I remember is right next to that was the 9mm which I have nothing in. People were hanging around waiting for it; the associate brought out two 1,000 round cases and while he was taking it out of the box and putting it on the shelf these people were scrambling taking it off the shelf as quick as it went on. There was none left when he finished putting 40 boxes on the shelf. And there was a four box limit. I watched this event happen from start to finish in minutes. And funnily even though they had a four box limit I still got 5 boxes of .40S&W.

    It will be sometime this year apparently. They say 150 days from when they get them to inspect them. And I believe that bill Trump singed was in late November so late April early May? I'm interested but it seems a lot of hassle. I'll have to get a new copy of my birth certificate from the state, a notorized CMP A2 form specifically for this purpose and have to go through NICS as far as I can tell three times. Plus cost. I'm expecting it to be at minimum $800 for a decent one and over 1K for the best grade. I plan on going middle road if I succeed in all this. Also a question about timing. I am part of a CMP affiliated group already, have been for a couple years. Photocopying that is easy. But they require you to submit a form filled out by someone who works at a range or in law enforcement saying you're competent enough. Does date matter? Say I do it at the end of this month and they start taking orders in May. Does it matter the form when it was filled out is 4-5 months old when my ranges range master signed off on it?
