  1. Well, I don't know how frequently they have them. My brother called and bought one. Don't think it was listed either, but the phone call is cheap.
  2. NATO/Mill spec ammo have harder primers. Standard ammo may not, something to keep in mind.
  3. Well I don't know about the QC of the I-Ty's stuff, but I can tell you that both of my fullsize witness pistols have a little over 5,000 rounds of HOT reloads through them with no issues. I put heavier springs in them. I could feel the slide battering the frame stock. If you end-up un-happy, call me and I'll probably buy it from you.
  4. If you haven't found one yet. www.impactguns.com They are GREAT to work with, and have tons of Witness stuff
  5. There wasn't a good enough shot to say positively that it was or wasn't a 308 cartridge. According to three different reloading books that I have, the Cartridge Specs on the 7.62NATO and 308Win are identical. So I don't know what you are talking about with the shoulder. As rook said, both the 7.62X39 and the 7.62X54 or 7.62X53R use .311-.312 bullets. What I think is most disturbing about this, is not that yet another idiot is "informing" people about guns. But the fact is this IDIOT was supposedly a NAVY SEAL!!!
  6. Unless I was THE GUY who got one of the bad ones, my 24/7 didn't have enough strength to hold standard 40 pressures. Mine shot mostly Free Ranger ammo,(gotta love the border patrol)with about 400 rounds of standard pressure reloads. The slide had some SERIOUS peening on it, and the locking lugs on the barrel had some "pealing" on the edges. Don't get me wrong I LOVED that gun, best fitting, VERY accurate, just didn't have the longevity that I require in my guns. If I can't get 2,000 rounds a year down the pipe without troubling wear, I trip it. With the number of *HOT* 10mm rounds fired this year, my Witness is laughing at me. Damn thing still feels new in it's lock-up fit.
  7. I'm a 45 Magnum man myself. As those third-coasters say "Gotta 45-Magnum sending shots to the spleen".
  8. I had a stainless mini-Thirty about 2 years ago. I never tried any reloading, or serious shooting, I was a spray and pray shooter. I did do some rock chuck chasing, and it was fine with the $20 that was on it. I think it goes back to the whole 308 Vs.311 bore arguement, but the mini-thirty was a heat generating whore! I could bump-fire my AK till it wasn't fun anymore, and no Third degree burns would result from touching the rifle. The mini 30 was only good for about a clip and a half before you could use the thing as a branding iron. The heat caused a few distortions that affected the plastic permenantly.
  9. OK, So sorry it has been a while for an update. So I have myself 1 "Commercial Master" pad lock. I set up the lock on a wooden fence post out in the pasture. The lock was sitting on part of the fence, and leaning up against the rest of the post about sternum level. The Gun: Fullsize Steel Witness The load: 155gr XTP, 11.6gr BlueDot, COL: 1.25" Distance to Target: 4 paces, about 12 feet. The Results: So the first round caught the clasp on the opening side, roughly half-way to the top of the hoop. This opened the lock!!! This shot seriously bent the clasp, but the lock still functioned properly. Re-locked and shot #2. This shot hit the body of the lock in the upper right corner, just below the attached side of the clasp. This didn't open the lock, but SERIOUSLY damaged the locks integrity. It popped the head of the rivet off, AND broke the rivet in two different places within the lock. The plates of the lock started to peel up, which stretched two neiboring rivets. This impact also SERIOUSLY altered the shape and structure of the lock. The entire lock now has a deep wave shape to it. I took these pictures after two rounds, I plan on shooting it again tommorrow, to see how many it takes to reach a catastrophic state of failure. My personal guess is about 2-4 more rounds and that will be all she wrote for the "Commercial" strength beast. Below are the links for the lock pictures. http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j84/Dark...ction/lock2.jpg http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j84/Dark...ction/lock3.jpg http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j84/Dark...ction/lock5.jpg http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j84/Dark...ction/lock6.jpg http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j84/Dark...ction/lock7.jpg http://i78.photobucket.com/albums/j84/Dark...ction/lock8.jpg
  10. I have to dissagree. I have a shooting friend who is a 1911 FREAK. He has a jig so that it isn't a butcher job of angles, and works on everything that he has. He has a few guns that have a trigger weight of 1/2#. Provided you don't touch the trigger it doesn't fire. Mind you he is a shooter, not someone with guns that happens to shoot. At any given time there are 7-10 1911's bouncing around in his hummer. They don't get cleaned very often, and they don't get hauled around in velour cases. IF you are going to take a file to things, Pay CLOSE attention to proper engagement angles. The SEAR/HAMMER fit IS NOT the only thing to file on if you want SAFE and LIGHT trigger pulls. You need to do work on the hammer hooks and disconnector as well. If someone tells you that you can't get a good light pull out of the gold cup series, or similar 1911's they don't know what they are doing.
  11. I love mine, and reload the crap out of it. If you get and don't like it, give me a buzz
  12. So I have a pile of Hornady 155gr. XTP's loaded-up. I was doing some shooting at my junk yard, and found a couple of combination locks. Not the $.99 store variety, but Masters finest. So I lined them up and knocked Em down. Now I know that combination locks are no where near as stout as pad locks, but I didn't expect utter annihilation. I know that "TBOT" has done lock shoot testing, but not with a 10mm. Has anyone here tried yet? Or is this going to be this weekends task??
  13. Cocked and locked! No tool more useless than an unloaded gun.
