  1. I wish they had reasonable lead times....
  2. I usually shoot Acme 185 swc under 3.6 or so of Clays in range brass. When I do my part I've found that load to be very accurate - i.e. ten rounds into the black at 25 yards out of a 1911 and CZ97b with bushing. Of course, those Acme bullets are now made of unobtanium. Using what I can get - .45 swc coated from local store and X-treme flatnosed, accuracy is much less predictable. From an offhand group sometimes as good as 3-4 inches to upwards of 6-8-10. Lots of flyers. The coated bullets are 200 gn, with a bumped down charge a bit, and the flat nosed are 185 at usual 3.6.
  3. I’ve run blue 147 thru two different s2s and have never had trouble feeding.
  4. Was looking for a speed hammer that still has single action spur. Doesn’t seem anyone makes them anymore? For an N or L frame.
  5. Have a new 1100, and have loaded about 2500 rounds. Yesterday I went downstairs to load some rounds and the last 1/4 of handle stroke was suddenly "muddy" and required significantly more pressure. Seems to be something to do with shell plate rotation. Before I pull it apart and pull off shell plate, anyone have any thoughts on what might cause an increase in resistance on the final 1/4 of stroke?
  6. Tool guy - thanks again. Went ahead and polished the two corners, and the bottom of the rebound slide, and the Miculek rebound spring now works pretty well. No more hanging up and is even a bit smoother than w the factory spring. Noticed the frame on which the rebound slide travels is machined so that the foreword half is higher than the rear, forward being the muzzle end. It’s the same as in illustrations in the 5th edition manual. Anyone know why? To shed debris?
  7. Tool guy - Thanks very much for the photos! Now I get it. I've just ordered the video, but the photos give me a good start. Appreciate it. It looks like you're changed to real metal for the trigger. Looks like same for hammer and rebound slide?
  8. got to make sure I id the correct two corners before I radius.
  9. Hi, I installed a Miculek main spring and his trigger rebound spring in a 929. The double action and single action are light and will set off even CCI primers. Problem is the trigger reset is now bumpy and slow. It's sort of feels like it's a two-stage reset. I'm new to revolvers and I'm not sure what's going on. I haven't stoned any of the parts and other than installing a new fiber optic front sight haven't done any other work. Anyone have thoughts? Right now I'm going to return to the original factory rebound spring. I've seen other posts that say the main spring and
  10. Was wondering about the safety factor during draws or while running. Given all thats been written above I wanted some idea, granted very imprecise, on how sensitive the TSO was if dropped. So I got a little.
  11. Went down to the basement this morning and loaded a primed case - no bullet or powder - into my TSO. S&W .40. CCI primer. Stock except for recoil spring. Dropped it from shoulder height onto floor, concrete covered with linoleum, no padding. No magazine was in the gun. Dropped it on muzzle with hammer down. Muzzle with hammer cocked. On hammer with hammer cocked. On hammer not cocked. It did not always strike on the "correct" spot, but it probably simulated a real world inadvertent drop - except for the linoleum. In no case did the gun fire. If s

  13. Nothing that I could see. Would have figured I could see something. The .3850 reamer took off very little metal. Almost as tho all it did was change the aerodynamics of the bullet - maybe reduced turbulence?
  14. I have a TSO with about 12-15,000 rounds thru it. Until last week it had a very short reset, when in the middle of a match it began resetting intermittently. The trigger would move as normal but not reset until I pulled it a couple of times. The trigger spring is a few months old and looks fine upon inspection. So yesterday I replaced the sear spring and today put 100 rounds thru it, and found that while the trigger now did reset the travel to reset is now far longer. Previously reset occurred almost instantly by just easing off the trigger a smidgen. Now, I need to le
  15. I reamed all three baffles in the compensator with a .3850 reamer and solved the problem. Took off a smidgen more than the EGW 9mm/.38 reamer.
