  1. I have heard of this happening but always when shooting through a port and letting the handle beat the wall.
  2. When reading american articles about handgunds I am always baffled cause they usually shoot groups to 10 yards. I think the standard range everywhere else for handguns is 25 meters = 27,3 yards. I think 25m groups tell a whole lot more and also it teaches the shooter a lot more about what he is doing wrong. Here in Finland even the 18 year old military conscripts start from 25 meters and they usually havent done any shooting before. I dont get it, why go for 10 yards?
  3. Ive started with bolt forward, hammer cocked -> PEEP -> load 8 into tube -> press the little button to release a round on top of lifter -> rack the bolt -> shoot.
  4. Sorry no pics but I can tell you that I am positively surprised. I loaded 200 rounds (batch for load development) and the crimp removal seems good enough not to cause bigger concerns. Out of the 3000 brass I prepped, I expect a few crushed primers but for now Im happy with results.
  5. I bought it and have prepped around 3000 brass with it (maybe 2000 crimped ones). Had some difficulties at first trying to get it centered but then gave up and just went with it. Im only just starting the reload phase so cannot yet comment about how good job it does. By the looks of decrimped brass, I am a little worried there might be issues when priming.
  6. Someone must know what to use with factory ammo?
  7. I am now running Shadow 2 OR with DPP on a original CZ mount. Currently using 13lb recoil spring and shooting Bulk Factory ammunition (Geco or Sellier&Bellot). How do I know if a lighter spring would help with recoil? Putting the DPP on top increased the recoil noticeably.
  8. Sorry, I wrote this not thinking that some people live in USA. For us in Europe only change is to make one because S&W customer support doesn't extend here.
  9. Your best bet is to find a machinist or gun smith who can make one based on your old firing pin. I paid 20€ each for my last firing pins.
  10. IPSC Shotgun World Shoot 2018 - Standard division was won with Beretta 1301. Second place in Modified division was also taken with 1301. Both Finnish shooters.
  11. New beretta 1301s dont have that serial number problem anymore. They moved it.
  12. I modified my original 1301 latch pretty much in the same way. Only took a file and a few minutes.
  13. Light strikes are not a big issue. I am currently using a below 13lb spring on my SP01 Shadow with no misfires with Kadet kit. For Kadet to work I just cut the Kadet firing pin spring(a little at a time) until it doesn't misfire anymore. Seems to be a common solution. Some people also like to sharpen the tip of the firing pin.
  14. I have had it happen with dummy rounds when rolling the gun over (ejection port facing up) and sweeping the round from Matchsaverz with strong hand. Have not yet happened with ejection port facing right.
  15. So there is a 4 page thread about matchsaver detonation and in those 4 pages there no one has been able to to actually produce himself the situation. Then few years later there is some new information on this topic but it is not allowed to be discussed anymore because someone will be offended? By what? Could they just not open if they are not interested?
