  1. Danny Walton

    My good friend Danny Walton passed into eternity 09 August. Anyone in the mountain west who met him or had the pleasure of shooting with him will never be able to forget him; one of the funniest, loudest, happy-go-lucky guys God ever put on this earth. God speed Danny! http://www.lindquistmortuary.com/notices/Daniel-Walton

  3. Tuned 2011 40 mag how to?

    Echo Cha-lee's sentiments - I Casemaster Jr. all my 40's and I can get 21 & 2/3rds rounds in all three of my 21 rounders - 2 FGW-tuned STI's and one SV mag. Makes it easy to reload without using a lot of force.
  4. Tuned 2011 40 mag how to?

    You might get 22 crammed into the mag but you'll never get it to seat with the slide forward! End up cracking your plastic grip too if you try too many times!
  5. Sig P320 X5 Case Separation and Extractor Loss

    Dang, I thought my 320 was the only one that swaged a belt on 9mm cases! Got a whole lot more than the handful you've got pictured too!
  6. P320 X5 Thread

    All right Tommy!! Still waitin' for mine to show - startin' to get a little impatient!
  7. P320 X5 Thread

    Gotta admit, I had a second bone-stock P320 on hand to compare the polished parts to the stock ones. Also, Bruce Gray has a nice vid on his site showing the installation of the PELT trigger on a 320 and it has a couple of reassembly tips to ease the process.
  8. P320 X5 Thread

    Outside of FCU where trigger bar rubs, completely disassembled the inside of FCU and polished the interior pieces. Real CAUTION is needed here as I imagine it would be really easy to go too far and have either an unsafe pistol or a non-working one! Slow going and many, many times disassembling/reassembling - not for the impatient!
  9. P320 X5 Thread

    Nunez is partially correct - it was light polishing many, many times to get to where it eventually ended up. I spent a lot of time with disassembly/re-assembly to say the least!
  10. P320 X5 Thread

    Hey Tom - I haven't gotten my X-5 yet but I did get to handle one at Scheels in Billings last Monday - the trigger pull was terrible! Mushy and gritty at the same time while probably 5&1/2 - 6 pound pull weight. I did my own trigger job on my 320 as the 6 month plus wait time for GG to do it wasn't in the cards for me. After hours of fiddling with it my trigger now breaks at 2 pounds 10 ounces. I've pulled some .11-.12 splits with it so the re-set is perfect on mine. I've put probably 3000+ rounds through it so far with nary a bobble. My plan is to use my 320 FCU and put the X-5 top end on it once it gets here.
  11. Pass-through case resizing problem?

    I've used a Casemaster Jr (Magma Eng) for a number of years to resize 40 S&W and 10mm brass. I hook up my Dillon case feeder to it and can "push through" 1200-1300 per hour using it. Big benefit of it is that the case is pushed base-first through the die versus neck first using Lee or Redding push through dies.
  12. Hi, I was wondering if you could give me a little more info on the SV you are selling.  Is it a factory custom build?  Also, any history on the gun, did Brandon build it?

    1. titandriver


      Not a factory build, here is some info about it: 

      The SVI pistol was built in the late 90's-early 2000's by Mike Johnson Shooting Specialties in Chinook, Montana where he still does gunsmithing. Mike was one of the pistol smithing pioneers of IPSC/USPSA  from the late 80's going forward until today. He originally built several Open and Limited pistols for my friend in Twin Falls, Idaho who used them primarily for Steel Challenge matches. He had a bike accident and broke his neck about ten years ago and has not been able to shoot since. I bought some of his pistols about 6-7 years ago and shot this one for about a year before moving on to a six inch gun. 


      Pistol has bull barrel, ambi's, fiber optic front sight, interchangeable breech face, SV magwell, plastic grip, one SV hi-cap mag. Pistol has right at 15K through it and runs 100%. I can sell you extra mags if you'd like pretty cheap.

      Thank you for getting back to me, I appreciate it.  I just need to sleep on it.

  13. The Black Mamba...SOLD

    Hey Joe - could you share any particulars about the simplified Open blaster with me? PM me if need be, I might could be interested if this Carry Optic pistol thing doesn't work out for me. Thanks! Rich
  14. The Black Mamba...SOLD

    Somebody got a great pistol! Congrats Joe, I'm certain the new owner will absolutely love it!
  15. Question for you "fast fingered" folks

    Thanks JAFO - I never even thought about that! I've done it dozens of times with 1911's - I'll give it a go tomorrow.
