  1. Para C6.45 slide options

    Thanks! My Dad would like to change slide to make his C6.35 into a hybrid/longer slide carry gun. Something different.
  2. Para C6.45 slide options

    I posted this originally in the 1911 forum, but no one answered. Does anyone know if the C7.45 3.5" or 12.45 LDA 3.5" slides will fit the C6.45? If so, do you need to modify anything? I'd like to make this into a 3.5" gun.

  4. Any solve the titanium cylinder/ brass sticking issue?

    In my case it appears the issue was the bullets were loaded too short while using .357 lead. Seated at 1.170", they work perfectly. Slower powders like WSF help also! No polishing yet.
  5. Any solve the titanium cylinder/ brass sticking issue?

    I finally got out to try a few loads this weekend. Sticking the bullets out to 1.170 really helped the brass sticking and accuracy. WST and WSF both worked equally well. Thanks everyone. I may stick with 3.2gr of WST and 124RN for now. The 160gr RN really intrigue me. I use 200RN in my 38 special and they are crazy accurate and feed awesome!
  6. Compensator material

    7075AL or 17-4H900 SS.
  7. Any solve the titanium cylinder/ brass sticking issue?

    Thanks everyone. I need time to go out testing loads. We spend a lot of time chasing kids in sports...
  8. Any solve the titanium cylinder/ brass sticking issue?

    I think the pressure may be the culprit. My 147gr loads are seated to 1.095" and with WST it may be too fast of a powder. When I get a chance I will purchase TG and try the bullets out further. I was hoping to find a load which would work in my 986 & XDm 5.25. Neither seem to be nail drivers with the loads anyway. I do have WSF and SuperLight (yes I know they haven't made it for a while), but the closest place to buy power is 50 miles away... Thanks!
  9. Any solve the titanium cylinder/ brass sticking issue?

    I have been using WST. I use it for all my pistol loads without issues, except now...
  10. Any solve the titanium cylinder/ brass sticking issue?

    At the current time I'm using a mix of Winchester, Federal, and Remington with T-M moon clips. Any suggestions on brass?
  11. Any solve the titanium cylinder/ brass sticking issue?

    Maybe it is a problem with case bulge... I haven't loaded much 9mm. I have only loaded 38 super, 38 special/357, and 45acp in pistols. I have reloaded and shot more rounds than I want to admit! It may be that the revolver cylinder is too short for 147 truncated bullets or at least how I have them set out. My crimp is set at 0.378". Anyone have loads with WST powder in the 986 or 929 they are willing to share? Thank you for the ideas!
  12. I have a 986 and struggle finding loads which release from the cylinder easily. One thing I know for certain, is that .358 diameter bullets stick badly. Smaller diameter bullets are better, but not perfect. Is the solution to use undersized dies or use 0.356 bullets. Maybe that's my next step before trying anything else. I hoped to use the same diameter lead as I use in my 38 super, but that looks like it's not going to happen... After running the brass through the sizer it does fit into the cylinders.
  13. Found a Pin Gun.

    Great looking gun! Hope to be at the shoot but not sure how my shoulder will fair. Had shoulder surgery and haven't tried 45 loads since... good luck! Love that match!!!
  14. S&W 986 warranty repair

    I received my 986 today! The timing is now excellent, and the work was done less than a month. S&W replaces the cylinder (whole thing) and installed a long hand. The cylinder locks up tight as a drum well before the hammer falls. Cheers!
  15. S&W 986 warranty repair

    Thanks for the info JCOERS! I sent an email to S&W and there reply at this times was " We don't have a turn around time to quote. Since we will be heading into our holiday shutdown from 12/23-1/2 we will be a week or so behind in repairs " which is fine. No worries. Just need it to be right when it comes back. I bought the gun knowing it had timing issues, but loved the looks and idea behind it! Some plate matches I attend at local clubs allow 7 shots in a revolver, so this will be perfect! Although I didn't feel too handicapped with a 6 shot 686. Merry Christmas!
