  1. 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
  2. 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. More info in the link below. http://www.practical-shotgun.com/beretta-1301-double-feeds-carrier-lock-ups
  3. The metal rod also can become a nice semi-permanent ceiling ornament about 2 microseconds after it becomes an accidental firing pin.
  4. I do something similar. I keep my weak hand (left hand) grip on the handguard, lay the buttstock on top of my weak arm with my elbow bent and let go of the grip. With the bent arm cradling the carbine I can run hard, pumping with the strong arm, while keeping the muzzle pointed directly downrange.
  5. Another option is monovision lenses. The lense for your dominate eye is corrected for clear vision at front sight distance and the other eye is corrected for distance vision, if necessary. I've used monovision lenses for the last 15 years with very good results. It takes a few minutes to get used to the first few times you use them, but after that your brain adapts almost instantly.
  6. The only problem is hitting the steel when shooting iron sights!
  7. The serial number location near the loading port somewhat restricts opening up the loading port. Some Gen 1 guns may or may not run 1oz birdshot loads without changing the gas valve spring. My Gen 1 gun had the spring issue, two of my friends do not and run 1oz loads fine. Lots of info here: http://www.practical-shotgun.com/category/beretta-1301 The Gen 2 guns have a little larger loading port and the serial number is relocated making it easier to open the loading port even more.
  8. 1-713-932-6995 or 1-800-331-5718 8AM-5PM Monday - Friday and 8AM-12Noon Saturdays Call, they answer the phone everytime!
  9. I've used both. No difference that I could tell.
  10. Hornady has two different "One Shot" sprays. One is a case lube and the other is a CLP with a very aggressive solvent. I have no idea what would happen if you used the CLP as a case lube.
  11. EEEEEWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  12. That looks more like the Ejector Pin Screw item 14 in the schematic.
  13. The felt difference in recoil is not worth the smaller payload on target.
  14. Prepare to be very disappointed. If you buy them all at the same time and are lucky enough to get them all out of one batch, they will generally be fairly close. If you buy them a year apart, they will not even be close. I have one of the old SDM recoil spring testers. I replaced the cheapie spring type fish scale with a digital scale that is very repeatable when tested against a dead weight. I do the same. I test a new spring after about 50-100 rounds and record the weight, then every time I do a detail strip cleaning, I weigh the springs. It will remain at that weight for several thousands of rounds then drop dramatically. The number of rounds can vary greatly before the weight drops.
  15. My take on erasing the results after a DQ is tied to the 'it has always been this way' answer given by many. I suspect all of the 'punitive' intent is just wishful thinking, and the truth is, it was just much, much easier to delete the results rather than try to figure a way to neutralize the DQ'd shooters scores while keeping the data intact, back in the days of all paper scorekeeping and then DOS/MSDOS based scorekeeping that wasn't much more advanced than the paper method. Since then it has just been inertia keeping it as 'it has always been this way.' Great question Kurt~!
