  1. You would need a 40 cal slide the 45 won't work
  2. Ok people you have heard my rant about Lightning Strike Technology LLC. Well here is what my gun smith said they did to my conversion ART ENTERPRISES 6/30/2012 Chuck Minzey I was requested to do an analysis of a 10 mm slide conversion that was done By Lightning Strike Technology llc for Mr Minzey on one of his existing guns. The following is a list of potential problems and work that was not done correctly. The slide had to have a slot cut into it for the bushing locking notch. This slot was started on the wrong side of the slide, then the machining was moved to the correct side. The machining was started in the wrong dimension from the front of the slide. It looks like the cutter was moved forward and backward trying to find the correct location. All the time this trying to find the correction location was happening, a slot was being cut into the wrong location. This should have been one smooth operation. It is a shoddy bit of machine work. It was not ever located in the correct place and was not cut high enough in the inside of the slide for the bushing to lock correctly. Due to the locking slot being in the wrong location the slide and bushing both have been damaged. This cannot be corrected using the existing slide and bushing. The barrel feet are not cut correctly for a short slide gun, hitting the back of the guide rod in an area that the barrel feet should not contact. The area on the barrel just in front of the upper locking lugs was improperly relieved. One of the upper barrel locking lugs has been removed. Since even the much weaker 9mm barrels have two upper locking lugs, removing one from the high powered 10mm does not seem like a good idea. This must somewhat weaken the whole system. The barrel has ugly file marks left on it. These are not hurting anything mechanically, but are indicative of poor workmanship in general. Sincerely, Alan Tillman Please don't use them
  3. If you are considering these people to build you a gun then read this first this is what happened to me . And now I have to sue them to get my money and original slide back. And I am not the only person to have a problem with them ! I contracted this company to do work on a Colt Officers model 1911 they were to build a complete upper assembly in the caliber 10mm on 9/20/2010. I was told the gun would be finished in 6 to 8 weeks. after 12 weeks I called and couldnt get an answer for weeks then they finally answered and said it would be a few more weeks, Then I emailed and called for 3 months and when they made contact they said it was done but still no gun, through all of 2011 I kept getting the run around I was told it was being shipped every month but still no gun, Finally at the end of Dec they said the gun was done and it would ship Jan 2012 but again still no gun then after complaining with various agency the gun arrived in March 2012 the gun was unfinished and not what i had asked for ,plus it was missing the original colt officers upperin 45 which was to be returned, I called and They said it was shipped with the gun. But the gun was left on my door step and I talked with FedEx and they felt that the upper was not in the box to begin with but paid a claim in the amount of 100.00. Now on to the gun it was not fitted properly to the frame as I have sent the gun to another Gun smith and heres a copy of his email. Chuck I will give you a call Friday. I have inspected your gun and it is not good. We can discuss in detail. The short list is: Barrel and bushing not set up right. Each time the slide goes back, the bushing runs into the barrel and is being pushed out the front of the slide. Bushing is damaged and so is slide. Barrel feet are not cut correctly for short slide guns. Talk to you Friday. Alan
  4. They did work for me took them almost 2 yrs and then I didn't get what I asked for, will never use them again I just got my gun back and now have to send to someone else to make sure it's right they sent it back to me and FedEx left it at my door step with no one home
  5. I was looking for a holster company and ran across this http://www.etwholsters.com/ and had them build me 2 one for a Para and the other for my STI 10mm ck them out they are very reasonable chuck
  6. Ck out LST technology in WV they are building a custom upper for my Officers Model frame they are 10mm guys all the way
  7. LST technology in WV they just did my 1076 all new springs and trigger job 100.00
  8. I would locate a good gun smith I know of a couple and they do fine work Stay away from cylinder and slide they did work for me a few years ago and I wasn't happy, Novaks does good work,LST does a good job let them throat the gun as well

    the farmer

    This farmer was trying to get his pigs bred and wasn't having any luck so he went to his vet and said I have beem trying to get my pigs bred for a couple of weeks now but with no luck can you tell what I need to do? So the vet says well you will probably have to have them aritifiaclly insemenated, So not wanting to let on like he didn't know what that meant he said well how will I know if there pregnant the vet says if there pregnant they will be laying donw and if not they will be standing, So the farmer goes home loads up his pigs and takes them to the woods and has sex with them ,He gets up the next morning and looks out to see if they are laying down or standing up he see they are standing and loads them up again and off to the woods. So this goes on for about three weeks and the farmer is really tired of screwing these pigs so when he wakes up the next morning he ask the wife to look out and see if the pigs are laying or standing she comes back from looking and tell her husband they are doing neither there all in the truck and one of them is blowing the horn

    We all remember the KFC "Hillary Meal"---two small breasts and two big thighs. Now, KFC has announced an addition to their chicken dinners. It's called the Obama Cabinet Bucket. It consists of nothing but left wings and a**H****.
  13. I just purchased a 1076 a week ago off gun brokers and while pulling the trigger on an empty gun the trigger goes a little ways and then feels as though it breaks then gets hard again before you finish the pull, tell me this is not normal unless it is I have had other S&W but they didin't feel like this
  14. Hey if you have the time I have a question about the 1076 if you don't mind about the trigger and decocking lever chuck
