    Any Interest in a Mid Michigan ICORE Club?

    There are a few revolver shooters at the monthly steel match at South Kent Sportsman's club, which is about an hour or so from Lansing area. I think you may get a few to bite from there too. Please do keep us informed.

    Problems with 929s continue ?

    Would you please elaborate, seems like you know more I want to know, I'm sure others are too.

    Problems with 929s continue ?

    In one the recent ShootingUSA shows where they showed a steel challenge match, I did see Dave Olhasso shoot, what looked like to me an 8shot "franken-Ruger". I think its the new SRH 8shot with a longer custom barrel. So, I'm hoping they come out with one for the general market. I have a couple of screen grabs, but I don't know if it's ok to post here.

    New Compensator ?

    Would help in transitions, but I digress

    New Compensator ?

    Regarding comp performance (or lack of) on rimfires, there's a ton of opinions and I don't want to debate here, but I like this video from TK.

    New Compensator ?

    There is a new comp, looks similar to the Allchin : https://www.magnumshooterssupply.com/Gallion-Advantage-Rimfire-Compensator-Kit-MAGcomp001.htm With the o-ring and gaskets, it should be easy to clock right.

    2018 Michigan Steel Challenge

    The match is this weekend. In case some of you haven't made plans and would drive up/down for the weekend and shoot with us.

    Remington Files for Bankruptcy

    Did any of you get your Thanksgiving/Christmas rebate checks from Remington ? I didn't get mine yet, and I don't think I will

    One gun - Two calibers

    Won't the slide and frame wear differently ? How critical is this ? Say you shoot equal amounts of both calibers, the frame is working twice as much as the slides. How does this uneven wear impact over time ?

    2011 .22 conversion

    Did you look into Tactical solutions 22 upper, they also make mags for the 2011 for the 22. Just another suggestion/option. There is a group on Facebook called Rimfire Raceguns, you can look at the posts without joining. Have a look, there are a few 2211s on there, especially by Kurt Grimes. I've learned a few things on there, I'm sure you will too, that will help you in your eventual build. Do post your final build here for us to see :).
  13. Just saw this on Facebook, thought the guys here would know about this already.
  14. Does S&W sponsor any prizes/plaques, maybe for the big matches ? For $20 a plaque, they could very easily sponsor say 10 or 20 matches a year. This would grow the sport/division and they could sell more revolvers too, eh ? I heard Ruger sends a whole bunch of swag to the Ruger rimfire matches, even 10/22s as prizes.

    Grip for a 929

    I put an X-Frame Hogue grip on one of my N-Frames. It covers the back strap and is, what feels to me overall, thicker than a normal N-Frame Hogue. I like that grip. I wish Hogue made an X-Frame big butt grip.
