  1. Thanks for the replies, I ran into a NIB one at a friends gunshop, and it did indeed have a "flair" at the muzzle....so perhaps they made them more than one way? But seeing one new in box, at least confirmed for me, that the used one I saw was all factory.
  2. Guys, I saw a benelli m2, with interchangeable chokes. The barrel has a fairly Substantial "flair" at the muzzle to accommodate the choke....Is this "normal" ie Factory? Just curious as I have only had cylinder bore M1 in years past. Thanks in advance
  3. I took Bill Wilson's advice from his "Combat Auto" book decades ago, and settled on .468-.469, and oal of 1,250 and it has worked in all pistols including Sig p220's that often wouldnt accept anything longer than 1.265 or so (sometimes less) depending on the bullet ogive.
  4. I remember the titanium hammers of the 90's and their "superior lock time". They just didn't hold up. Caspian made titanium frames for a while, with mixed success, but other than cost, galling was a serious issue. All in all, good steel, that has been ported/lightened/hollowed, seems to hold up much better

    45 Colt

    I too have used Unique in .45 Colt and .44 special for years...In .45 I usually use 8.5g, although I often go higher in my 25-5 smith.. However, I have substituted Universal and gotten great results To achieve same velocity as Unique, the charge weight can vary .2-.4 of a grain. Just as accurate and a little cleaner, and meters better. John Linebaugh who is naturally associated with "MAGNUM" big bores has written that the revolver he shoots and carries most is a 25-5! loaded with a 260g at approx 900fps. I think he favors 231, somewhere around 8g, but that you will have to do a little research to confirm. good luck
  6. I think on any hicap build, Benny Hill at Triangle Shooting has likely built a version of it in the last 25 years...
  7. With Dan Wesson, I ordered direct from them on Dept. Letterhead. This was 5-6 years ago, I think I got it in a month or so. It was a solid pistol, if you want hicap, Im notnseeing anything better in the "under 2k range" than a Staccato...as Trace said...but If I was in the market for an single stack carry pistol in .45, DW is a solid pick.
  8. Garands are incredible! I got my first one 5 months ago, and have been thinking of restocking it... Damn, that stock looks great.
  9. Agree on the Briley "diagnosis". I remember when they offered that. Obviously the most likely solution would be to talk to Briley and see if you get lucky. Good luck, and let us know how it goes, as I have seen one of their pistols for sale at a nice price, but I deliberately held off because I wasnt sure it could be re-barreled if/when needed.
  10. Thanks for the answer! I gotta say the Steel frame has been intriguing me since the SHOT show... I carried, and Instructed with a standard PPQ for all of 2016, (added a straight apex trigger) shot 24k rounds through it that year and still like the gun, though I have moved on to other projects... for me, I think the PPQ SF Pro, with just a straight Apex trigger sounds just about perfect to me.
  11. I got to shoot one last year, It belonged to a shooter who worked for WC. As the stated above, the PPQ mag was used as the basis of the EDC magazine, but they are not interchangeable. Nonetheless, it seems to me that it was good thinking by Bill Wilson... a solid mag, reliable and size efficient.
  12. Can someone tell me what the difference is between the Q5 Sf and the SF Pro?? I keep looking and do not see the difference... I understand that the adjustable trigger is a separate thing... Thanks.
  13. I did the exact same mod on mine! It really chewed up my middle finger at first. I also took off the light finger grooves. I found that with a crush grip, the grooves made my fingertips go numb! Removing them solved that issue.

    For the POI issues, have you tried the Wilson rear sight? It comes in two heights. One is made for the dovetail FO front, and the other is made for the old style integral models. Perhaps the lower one for the Integral sight might bring down your POI. Might be worth a try.
  15. Its a nice setup if you like to "roll" the trigger all the way from front to back. I carried my duty glocks that way for years... Also it was good insurance against the trigger return spring breaking, which was a fairly common problem. However I no longer manipulate the trigger that way. For the last 6 years or so I shoot "press to wall-break" so the two stage trigger is now actually preferable for me. Finally, the broken trigger return spring issue is pretty much resolved. Hope that helps.
  16. A charging handle? I was asking if there was a way to "easily" mount a trijicon rmr dot...oops sorry, saw that u were replying to another question. Apologies.
  17. Guys, a buddy is looking for a trij rmr mount for his 1301 Comp, it's not the brand new model, it it 3 years old. (Diff action length?). Does anyone make one? Thanks

    Will do, but it looks like it just found a home.

    Take care.
