  1. CDI and Tohnichi are good brands. We buy a lot of tools from ProTorque Tools, they have good prices and very good service. https://www.protorquetools.com/torque-screwdrivers/adjustable/?_bc_fsnf=1&sort=priceasc
  2. I think you mean inch/lbs. If you can do 100 ft/lbs with a screwdriver, I don't want to shake hands with you!!!!!
  3. The smaller, more tapered block like GunCat's makes it easier to hit the Carrier Catch to release the carrier during an unloaded start.
  4. OKAY, I'm the young punk in Super Senior, but leave Outer Limits alone, change the penalty for not moving to appease the small, very vocal minority.
  5. Why do people that admit little to no experience with something want to make changes?
  6. Item 138 on the linked schematic is for the 1301 Tactical and is the 2 screw Weaver rail (p/n C5F154) that does not align with the 1301 Comp screw holes. https://www.midwestgunworks.com/page/mgwi/prod/C5F154 The part number for the Picatinny rail for the 1301 Comp is E5D864. https://www.berettausa.com/en-us/beretta-picatinny-rail-for-1301-tx4/e5d864/
  7. If my squad has to wait on a squad to finish shooting a complicated stage, I grab a roll of tape and go help reset rather than lounging around waiting. I make sure that I don't get in the way of the on deck shooter, but I also make sure that I get a good look at the stage, how the steel is set, etc....while I'm taping targets and setting steel.
  8. The answer is "Maybe" The Gen 1 magazines do not have full length feed lips and a black follower, the Gen 2 magazines have full length feed lips and a brownish follower. There is no Gen 3 magazine. Gen 1 magazines work fine in both of my Gen 2 MPX's, your mileage may vary. The Gen 1 magazines are much cheaper, buy 1 or 3 and try them in your gun.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5b1EuRIr7bc
  9. simple explanation https://www.quora.com/Why-does-the-human-eye-see-more-shades-of-green-than-any-other-colour "Green lies in the middle of the solar spectrum and the sun peaks in its output on those wavelengths. The more photons in a spectral region that are available to be observed, the easier it is to distinguish shades. And if you use a system of multiple photoreceptors with overlapping absorption ranges as most life on earth does for color perception, the middle of the spectrum where your photoreceptors overlap with one another the most will automatically be where you can see the most shades." more detailed explanation https://www.physicsclassroom.com/class/light/Lesson-2/Visible-Light-and-the-Eye-s-Response "Color can be thought of as a psychological and physiological response to light waves of a specific frequency or set of frequencies impinging upon the eye. An understanding of the human response to color demands that one understand the biology of the eye. Light that enters the eye through the pupil ultimately strikes the inside surface of the eye known as the retina. The retina is lined with a variety of light sensing cells known as rods and cones. While the rods on the retina are sensitive to the intensity of light, they cannot distinguish between lights of different wavelengths. On the other hand, the cones are the color-sensing cells of the retina. When light of a given wavelength enters the eye and strikes the cones of the retina, a chemical reaction is activated that results in an electrical impulse being sent along nerves to the brain. It is believed that there are three kinds of cones, each sensitive to its own range of wavelengths within the visible light spectrum. These three kinds of cones are referred to as red cones, green cones, and blue cones because of their respective sensitivity to the wavelengths of light that are associated with red, green and blue. Since the red cone is sensitive to a range of wavelengths, it is not only activated by wavelengths of red light, but also (to a lesser extent) by wavelengths of orange light, yellow light and even green light. In the same manner, the green cone is most sensitive to wavelengths of light associated with the color green. Yet the green cone can also be activated by wavelengths of light associated with the colors yellow and blue. The graphic below is a sensitivity curve that depicts the range of wavelengths and the sensitivity level for the three kinds of cones."
  10. I just finished shooting the Limcat UML District 1 match. The match was very good-NO DEATH STARS although it did have one Texas star, and one polish plate rack, for either shotgun, handgun or PCC and two spinners, one for rifle, the other for handgun or PCC. Pete Resing designed the stages and they were very reminiscent of the fast speed racer type of early 3 Gun Nation stages that got me shooting 3 Gun. I really like the USSL/UML stages, lots of choices of which gun to shoot which targets in large shooting areas with a few hard leans, tight shots, and some offhand rifle at 50ish yards on small plates and not a lot of gimmicks. There should be some youtube videos up by now. So if you're tired of the shoot this from that box 3 Gun, try some USSL/UML matches.
  11. Depending on which rail and sight you have, loosen the barrel retaining screw, then remove the rear sight rail screw. Retract the slide slightly and tip the barrel/rail assembly off the frame. Re-assembly is the reverse, tightening the rear sight rail screw before tightening the barrel retaining screw puts a very slight side load on the rear sight rail screw which helps somewhat to prevent it from loosening. This!!! A bore snake to clean the chamber or a bent .243 brass bore brush like this to clean the chamber https://www.gunsmithertools.com/product-page/brush-n-mop-chamber-tool A couple of round wooden toothpicks to clean the barrel face and the breach face especially in the casehead recess.
  12. For the 10/22 rifle I only lube with Hornady One Shot CLP (NOT THE CASE LUBE!!!!) or WD40 Specialist with Teflon (NOT THE GEL) https://www.hornady.com/reloading/case-care/lubes-and-cleaners/one-shot-cleaners https://www.wd40specialist.com/products/dry-lube?specialist=GoogleBrand&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI9MH5p7XE4gIVlONkCh3Y5QjbEAAYASAAEgLJ5fD_BwE For the Buckmark the WD40 Specialist works OKAY. I don't use the dry lubes on my Buckmarks, I use a very small amount of light oil like EEZOX or Lucas Light gun oil. https://www.eezox.com/shop/ultimate-gun-care-4oz-can https://lucasoil.com/products/out-door-line/gun-oil I put the oil into precision needle oiler bottles and apply 4 drops to the slide. With the slide locked back, put one drop at the front corner of the slide, each side and then at the back put one drop in the corner at the point the slide meets the rear frame post, each side and that's it. Leave everything else dry.
  13. I'm impressed that nobody took the rimshot and asked "Why, is your Range Officer too chicken to trust your reloading skills?"
  14. Check over on Rimfire Central. They have a Buckmark specific section with lots of good information. https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=329
  15. It looks like you may be having a problem with a loose trigger housing. Try putting a thin piece of pasteboard (business card or playing card) between the rear of the trigger housing and the receiver.
