    Winchester small pistol primer issue

    I had a bad batch of winchester primers a couple yrs ago. What a pain. I finally got thru them all. I have since used some winchesters without a problem. I have used cci, have had no issues with them, and they seem to load smoother than winchesters.

    1911 Complete Disassembly, Cleaner, Lube

    After you have done it a few times, you will realize it's very easy to do. CLP is a good cleaner/lube. The frame doesn't need to be cleaned very often. Clean everything and apply a thin film of lube where parts rub each other. I clean my slide after shooting @ 2500rds. You want to keep the firing pin and extractor clean. Gunk will build up there. I use pipe cleaners on the extractor and firing pin tunnels. Safety check the gun after re-assembly.
  4. Check the over travel adjustment.

    Grip screw fell out

    I doubt Lowes will have it. Try a true value hardware or similar.

    Grip screw fell out

    Yes Then call sti, they will send you a new screw. Probably take a week to get it.

    Grip screw fell out

    The screw on the bottom is shorter and won't work.

    Grip screw fell out

    Is the part inside the frame still there ? If it is, I would take it to a hardware store and get a screw that would work. Then call STI. I wouldn't shoot it the way it is.

    When do you disengage thumb safety?

    It has become so automatic that I had to draw the gun numerous times before I could answer. I disengage the safety just before placing my weak hand on it.

    local club says I can't shoot Appendix.

    That makes sense

    local club says I can't shoot Appendix.

    I know a club that does not allow pcc at their uspsa matches. I think the club can set their own rules.

    New Classifier Percentages

    Keep in mind , if they did this once, they can do it whenever they feel like it.

    New Classifier Percentages

    I didn't say your classification would change. I meant if you are in the bottom of your class, your next scores just dropped into the lower class.

    New Classifier Percentages

    With a stroke of a pen they just moved everyone in the low end of their classification down one class. This will probably cause some classified to go to a "U" when their membership expires. Too bad this couldn't have been voted on.
