Firearms and Accessories / Re: Buckmark in 5.5 or 7.25 barrel
« Last post by Inspector on Today at 06:08:59 AM »
Will do! Wanted to get some Federal target auto fodder but read some bad things about it. Will probably try some anyway and give it a fair shake. Looking at Tandemkross comp. Only thing I don’t like about it is the diameter is .920 and the barrel is .900 (yeah I’m a little anal about things like that but from what I’ve read it a great comp). The other is tactical solutions. They have a comp at .900.
As for optics will prob run irons for now. I did get a cheap optic awhile back. Might try it out on the buckmark and see what happens. If I like the optic route will invest in a Burris fastfire or equivalent......

Decisions decisions!  :thumbsup: :D ;)
The Federal Auto Match used to be the bargain of the century. When it was first introduced it was accurate, clean, functioned well and generally good quality ammo at a low price. Since it’s introduction the quality has gone down. Along with the quality the accuracy and functioning has gotten worst. I bought a few boxes of the early release from YG for $18.95. Then a year later I saw it on sale at YG again for $24.95. I bought a bunch of it at that time because .22 was starting to get hard to find. I always try out new batches of .22 when I get it because different lots can and does shoot differently. Even the best and most expensive ammo is this way. This second batch was crap. I thought I must have made a mistake with the first batch I bought. Went to the range and compared the two and the first batch was far superior to the second batch. Not just different, but even visually there was a huge difference. And as you found, I am not the only one who found this out. However, like with any .22 ammo and gun combo, you never know how a certain ammo shoots out of a particular gun until you try it. As much as I cringe when I am writing this, I will even recommend trying the worst of the worst Remington Golden Bullets and Thunderbolt ammo. Remington has a very poor reputation with their .22 ammo. Dirty, poor quality, not consistent between shots, etc. But lately I have been reading that some very credible people in the firearms industry have been getting excellent results with Remington bottom of the barrel .22 ammo. So it looks like they have raised their QC on their .22 ammo. So try this as well. The Golden Bullets come in a bucket and are cheap when packaged this way. I also recommend you try CCI Mini Mags and Standard Velocity ammo. These two seem to shoot really well out of most guns. If you find CCI Blazer I suggest you try this as well. It has a good reputation like Mini Mags and SV. I finally standardized on Blazer (low cost) for plinking, CCI SV (moderate cost) for target practice and SK and Eley (expensive) match ammo for when I want to get the most out of my guns that can shoot. I own way too much .22 ammo.  :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

General Discussion / Re: S&W Revolver with Stuck Cylinder
« Last post by Inspector on Today at 05:29:13 AM »
Was able to get the cylinder open. Not really sure what I did to get it open. I tried prying the locking bolt/pin with a utility knife blade and eventually a screwdriver that was in the box with the gun. Applied lube to the locking bolt and let it sit. Didn’t move, so applied lube to the cylinder release. After some workIng the release, the cylinder opened.

I noticed that locking bolt move freely on a S&W Model 28 revolver. He locking pin moves out past the frame in that gun. So think some things were frozen in the Model 57 revolver. Will eventually get it to a Smith for a full checking. But happy that I can get the cylinder open.
Glad to hear you got it open without buggering it up. WHen you said you tried prying it open with a screwdriver I sort of cringed.  :shake:

When I got my father’s HS the trigger would not reset after firing. I could reset it by pushing it forward with my finger. I just thought it was a weak or broken spring. It took me literally months to figure out the problem and fix it. Turns out there was just a bunch of old dried oil/gunk that was not allowing the trigger to move freely.

Problem with Shot Show is you need to be in the firearms or a related industry to attend.  Looking at the requirements, I would not be able to attend the Shot Show.  Tell me if I am wrong, that the ordinary gun enthusiast would not be allowed to attend.

 I've been to SHOT Show and NRAAM a few times.   You are correct that the NSSF has tightened the rules for attending SHOT show because it's meant for businesses and the vendors want to make large sales. Regular people get in the way like you're bothering them.

NRAAM is about half the expo size and many of the vendors are the same people from SHOT, but it's focused on the consumer, so they are a lot friendlier and relaxed.  Another difference is the expo makes up almost all of SHOT show while the expo makes up half of NRAAM with activities, workshops, and conferences make up the other half.

I always see people dreaming of going to SHOT, but most enthusiests will get a better experience at NRAAM unless they're looking for something specific like skeet clay throwers, specialized law enforcement equipment, or other unusual stuff.

Hoyt Magnatec compound now at 20 yards, 60 lb draw weight. Shot it cold turkey after not shooting for a couple weeks. Pun intended.
