Were you getting something fixed or having it rebuilt?
Bit of both, posted about it a couple months ago here. It’s a century build but one of their early imports from ~91, where all they did was cut the flash suppressor off. None of my local smiths would thread the barrel so I could add on a new flash suppressor. Sent it in for a full rebuild and refinish along with a barrel threading.

Curious, what do you guys use for a carry? I just switched from a S&W to a Glock 43X and I gotta say this little fucker is awesome (after I just about replaced everything on it...).

My current EDC pistol is a Dan Wesson Specialist 1911 in .45 ACP, but I also have a SIG P226 TacOps in 9mm and I recently got an FK BRNO PSD that I plan on carrying in cold weather since it's 7.5mm cartridge will be more effective against heavy winter clothing than typical pistol cartridges.

One of my friends still carries a 1911 and I feel compelled to give him shit for it all the time. At least it's not a musket I guess. I thought about getting one of those STI(or whatever they rebranded to) 9mms but I honestly cannot justify spending thousands of dollars for a 1911 even if I can get the blue label discounts.

It's official, ATF is going to try to regulate braces under the NFA.

I've wanted a Mini-14 for a couple years, but almost the instant I had enough money squirreled away in my gun fund, the pandemic happened and the supply evaporated. I went ahead and put in an order with my neighborhood gun store anyway, just so that I'd officially get in the nebulous waiting list. I just can't stop kicking myself about how if I'd only been a few months quicker, I would have my coveted gun right now. (:_(

Braces were from the start playing fuck fuck games with the ATF and the NFA. This isn’t a surprise at all.

Looks like it's just going back to the "if you shoulder it it's a felony" thing that everybody ignored when that was the ruling previously. I don't think braces are going to stop being sold.

My friend's old boss revealed his milsurp stash to us. I mentioned having an old beater of a 7mm Chilean Mauser because it was the closest I could get to a real Boer Mauser, and this Afrikaner shows off with his stash of genuine OVS marked Mausers, Mauser C96 (I think the holster is a repro though), Webleys, Krags, Lees, and all the other iconic firearms of the Boer War. No wonder I couldn't find anything locally, the man bought up all the good stuff!

Going back to an earlier post can someone enlighten me as to why exactly 40-70 gov revolver cylinders hold only 5 bullets and not 6?

Size and thickness of cyl.

Also @The Dude nice carry shame no longer made. Imho Wesson is one of best 1911 makers.

My daily carry is a g20 ported other ones I use my cz97bd and 1903. Sometimes mix up for lulz I know bad habit.

Ever since recall on the ccp Walter mines not been fired or carried but it's so nice.

I want to pose a question, I heard there is issues with current 6.5 carcano is this true anyone expand? I'm told the bullet itself is undersized. I reload but still

They always did strike me as a neener-neener, "I'm-not-touching-it" move.

Trump's DoJ, unfortunately, set the horrid precedent of banning bump stocks by agency fiat, rather then passing a bill through Congress.

Hopefully this brace stuff leads to Constitutional challenges against the NFA and GCA. This Supreme Court might possibly be sympathetic to it if they can stuff Roberts in a box. Mark my words though, no one is going to comply if/when they do turn braces into NFA items. The only people that complied with the bump stock ban were vendors.

Dan Wesson is still in business and still making 1911s. CZ has owned them for about a decade or so now, and they're still going strong. I love mine.

6.5 carcano
might not be what you're talking about, but when they were first manufactured domestically, it was easier to use .264" bullets than .268" bullets, which is the correct size. you can always just measure what you have to verify. some 6.5 Carcano military surplus had liners installed for sporting use for the smaller .264 as well and this is visible as a silver "ring" at the throat for the liner.

i do know that 6.5 Grendel had a weird undersize problem some time ago from import ammo through Wolf, but iirc they corrected it and recalled the ammo for exchange with correct manufacturing.
