  1. This is not moving after penetrating oil overnight and a steel a punch and a 3 pound hammer! I will decide what I need to do now but it will likely be like sheepdog said, cutting the sight out and replacing. Internet search finds the same thing about these sights. Installed @ Kimber with a "2 ton press" etc.. What's the point of the set screw I now wonder...
  2. I have never had a problem drifting any other sight on any other make of a pistol. This is a Kimber Classic Custom. No firing pin block etc. Removed 1/16" Allen Set screw (of course) which was loose anyway, but I cannot get this thing to drift. I have a huge bench vice so it is held solid, & I tried bigger hammers, then I tried to heat it, but no go. And will try overnight soaking with Kroil but are these things known to be a bit*h to move?
  3. Thank you but to be clear I did abandon that browser, otherwise I wouldn't be able to communicate in this fashion. I am giving feedback to you of the BUG that I could not see the photos which I uploaded. And I giving feedback of a BUG that I cannot see a preview of my post before I commit to it. Am I mistaken that this forum used to allow a preview before clicking "SUBMIT TOPIC"? Every other forum I use has this feature so one can preview formatting etc. I was eventually able to attach photos on a third post but two tries were unsuccessful. I do knot know i
  4. Perhaps but why does the code work for the other two fields but not the body topic? And what of the other problems I referenced? ALSO where is the PREVIEW choice before I choose SUBMIT TOPIC? And now I cannot see the photos I've attached. It acted as if the post was uploading them but no photos in my for sale advert.
  5. On an older version of Firefox on another computer, the field that I am typing this in right now is a skinny sliver and will not highlight with mouse or tabbing. So I could not post anything in the forums. I simply had a skinny white bar with rounded corners, and the word REQUIRED in red above it. The TITLE and TAGS boxes look and work just fine. Fix the Topic box or whatever this box is called and it will be fine. Otherwise its broken. ALSO where is the PREVIEW choice before I choose SUBMIT TOPIC? And now I cannot see the photos I've attached. It acted as if the post was uploading th
  6. I was cleaning my 9pro today and saw wear on the top trigger radius where the barrel lug is arched below the locking lug. This thin arch of the barrel has been wearing the aluminum trigger. My guess is I have 12-13k rounds since putting in the trigger. Is this normal for Apex aluminum triggers?
  7. Damnedest thing. I went thru two in two weeks. Bent the spindle a little first time so I bent it back best I could and got several hundred more loaded then had a case turn sideways on me. I did see a review on amazon that the lymans will work in Hornady dies but are a bit shorter. As CPD7119 stated above Thank you. So $4.00 for 10 of them at Midsouth Shooters Supply. I will tag them on to a future order.
  8. I have mostly Hornady New Dimension Dies. Their "Headed" style decap pins are nearly $1.50 each. But RCBS and Lyman also make "Headed" pins sold in 5 or 10 packs for much less and I'd like to know if they are interchangeable. Any advice on saving a buck or two would be appreciated.
  9. When I shot the 2016 Resurgence match, I bought a surplus M12/UM84 holster. Fit my para P16 just fine. In fact this holster fits a ton of handguns. The rules of this match mandated carrying your holstered handgun even on stages where it was not used. I thought a flap holster would be ideal for going prone in sandy environments, moving thru obstacles etc... The rules allowed changing holsters between stages so a blade tech was used when appropriate. I recommend everybody get a M12 as an extra "just in case/just to have".
  10. Try a smear of RTV silicone in the loaded chamber hole. Available at auto parts store. Can't hurt and non permanent. I use it as a poor mans gas buster around my charging handle for rifle.
  11. Some of you have mentioned "Aussie Clays". That's what I have. "Made in Australia. Packaged in USA." Is there a different source for Clays powder now? And how is it different?
  12. I have an 18" DMR (no longer offered apparently) 1:7 rifle length gas, that shoots 3/4 moa using 77 sierras. 68 hornady;s are about 1.25moa. My go to heavy bullet upper.
  13. SO THE PROBLEM IS FEDERAL BRASS! I have hundreds of Federal and PMC once fired cases I got from somewhere and decided to load them up. The Federals all have the setback problem. Occasionally the other bullets setback too but almost all Montana Gold 147's would push back in the Federal cases. In 25+ years or reloading I did not know that Federal pistol brass was known to be thinner. Searching on BE forums taught me this. I reloaded ~ 500 FC96 headstamp NATO GI cases and did not have such a problem. Federal commercial headstamp did me in. The Federal
  14. Why can I load 147 grain Hornady, Precision Delta, Remington HP, Remington FMJ Winchester FMJ with no problems and then when I load Montana Gold 147's I can push the bullet back into the case with moderate hand pressure against my loading bench? Is it the brass jacket sliding against the brass case? Dissimilar metals grab but similar metals will slide? A copper jacket in a brass case on all of the other listed bullets and I have no problems. Montana Gold bullets measure .3555-.356 so they are NOT undersized. In fact the montana gold 147's that I am using are almost identica
  15. I am having no luck finding something and hope someone can help. I am looking for a semi stiffened panel with MOLLE/PALS webbing on the outside and with belt loops on the belt side or a "tunnel" for a belt to thread thru. Like this but with only 3 panels. https://www.elitesurvival.com/belts/sidewinder-adaptive-molle-battle-belt/ The idea being I can keep my competition belt using Tek-Lok components and holster on my strong side as usual, but slide on a "panel" of 2-3 mags when I am competing with a .308 rifle. I already have the pouches, I just want a panel to re-purpose them.
