  1. What kind of warranty does Springfield offer? Does it cover wearing out the aluminum frame in normal usage, if taken care of normally? I seem to remember a lifetime warranty but that was back in late 1980s.
  2. I've bought 4 or 5 stock magazine base pads (because I broke a S&W M&P base pads by letting an unloaded magazine hit the concrete and thought the Tanfo base pads might do the same) from members since I've been on this forum. I tried to sell 5 Beretta .40 caliber magazines on the Beretta subforum, but was slapped down for trying to sell other than on the classified forum. I enjoy this forum more than any other and I hope the moderators rule in our favor.
  3. Perhaps there should be a Classified section for each pistol subforum. 1,200 replies on this topic- its hard to argue with that kind of success. But its Brian's forum and I support him running it the way he wants.
  4. And Lubriplate doesn't stain clothing (don't ask how I know that).
  5. Atlas is just working harder than we are. My grandfather used to say, "There's no rest for the wicked". Then he would continue and say, "So there's no rest for us either or the wicked will out work us." Not to imply Atlas is a bad guy, just that most of us need to work harder to earn more money and buy more really cool pistols, train more and load more ammo to shoot more. If it was easy then everyone would do it.
  6. You might try a top endish .40 S&W load from Hodgdon's reloading data website. You'll never get true 10mm performance from W231 powder because its too fast, but for practice or competition it should work fine. I don't know how much dirt, soot, etc. you'll have though. Back in the late 1980s and early 1990s, W-231 worked better than anything else that I tried in .45 ACP, but it sucked (was very dirty) in .38 Special and .357 Mag.
  7. ahudson- There are Beretta and Para subforums listed under "Technical - Factory pistols". The following link shows factory AR 24 mags listed at $30. Good luck. http://www.armalite.com/Categories.aspx?Category=56211c16-4145-4fe0-8604-e7e700032883
  8. Whatever happened to "Eats shoots and leaves"? That was great!
  9. Thanks BB. That was a very good explanation.
  10. I apologize for my provincialism, but I thought Australia disarmed their citizens a few years ago.
  11. Sig Lady- first hip replacement surgery? I expected that of me, but not of you. I guess I thought that I was the only one getting more "seasoned".
  12. I load to 1.23" cartridge overall length in my .40 (using 10mm mags), but I think the headspace would be way too long if you were shooting .40 cases in a 10mm barrel. You'd have to rely on the extractor to hold the cartridge in place or load the cartridge so long that the bullet is jammed into the rifling (which would limit you to minor power factor type loads- because the pressures would jump significantly). Just my two cents, YMMV.
  13. You don't need the Sprinco in the compact polymer unless you are shooting 10mm "full power loads"
