10 round magazines made by Wilson Combat or McCormick work alright. But IMO 8 rounds is the most I'd run for a Govt Model 1911. Higher mags just look and feel goofy
libertytreecollectors or gunpartscorp (Numrich)
In addition, the AMT Hardballer was introduced in at time when stainless steel alloys were fairly new for autoloaders so they suffered from galling (friction wear).
Finally, Hardballer is an apt name for them since they dont seem to like feeding hollowpoint ammunition
That being said though, its not like they can't be fixed up, it just takes a lot of work, but at that point, you're better off buying other 1911s... Stay away from earlier Auto-Ordnance guns too, they had the same QC issues
I think he was referring to a 10mm caliber handgun, i.e. a .40 SW, not the 10mm auto
You could say that about a lot of things. I didn't post to express my opinion or troll, just correcting a fact, and the fact of the matter is, you're getting worked up over nothing: assault rifles have been banned since 1986.
Nothing illegal, they're just really crappy firearms that aren't worth buying
Someone once told me that there is no war on drugs, or war on terror because of one thing: Wars end, they don't
lol, finding my old box trilogy of the original movies brought me here
Well, apparently this video was a torture test performed by Colt. If you wanna know how much constant abuse your guns can take well, sending continuous rounds though it would do it
Well, the AK can't even be classified because it can't be imported in original config, the M16 isnt 50 years old... yet... wait until ~2013 and lets see what the ATF does with it.
Funny you should say that, because a few months ago, I was trying out cheap South Korean 'HK spec' magazines, which kept double feeding on me. The guy next to me firing an AMD-65 laughed and gave the same "my gun fires in mud and sand lecture" half and hour later, his gun explodes, the front trunnion separates, receiver warps and sprays metal shards all over his arms. While picking him up, I thought to myself: "yeah, at least my gun doesnt do THAT, I feed it good ammo and clean it"
I'm pretty sure Auto-Ordnance makes the thompson. Thompson Center Arms makes hunting rifles =P
Yeah, people don't tend to read descriptions so the poster should have included "PROTOTYPE ONLY" in the title...
@cstarz32 he was a russian ultranationalist who wanted russia to go to war w/ the US, they attacked a russian airport posing as americans, and he killed the guy at the end of the attack, as 'proof' that an american was involved
You're thinking of the XM107, the designation changed to the m82 barrett when they decided to improve that instead of choosing a bolt action
What do you mean?, Civilian variants do not have the push pin for the lower receiver, and are modified so that the sear hole is blocked with a shelf. Having a receiver that can accept a full auto trigger group already constitutes a machine gun so you cant just replace a sear and trigger group to convert it to full auto, they wont fit. you'd either have to buy a full auto or not
How the hell am I showing any disrespect, I'm just saying we need to make sure the money we're giving the military is being used for the military. If you want to pay your taxes, and have someone just pocket it for themselves, fine, but that doesn't run by me.
And don't think you're the only one that's been to Afghanistan
so slag off, I don't care
dry firing typically doesn't damage modern center fire firearms: especially those with a free float firing pin. The firearms that would be damaged are those where the hammer IS the firing pin (i.e. it strikes the primer directly) or rimfire firearms Glocks work sort of like a bolt action: there's no hammer per se, but rather a firing pin that's locked back under spring tension and sent forward when the trigger is pulled. (i.e. striker fired) its safe to dry fire striker pistols
Yah, that was a lesson learned from the M72 LAW in Vietnam, VC used to pull the pins on grenades, and stuff them into the tubes. The diameter of the tubes prevented the spoon from flying off. And the tubes were hung in the trees, a tripwire would fling the tube downwards, and the grenade would fly out, release the spoon, and kill the soldier. Of course AT4s are too big for that nowadays but who knows what insurgents can do with them... improvised mortars?
well, he did shoot Reagan, *when he tried to assassinate Reagan*
I hear that! I mean, I don't make that much money, and am trying to make my way through college, so this is a godsend for me. Took a leap with the "556 style clone" on Amazon b.c. the reviews said it held zero: with that its good enough for me.
I gotcha, I thought you were just bashing the 1911 pistol itself.
The main reason I stayed away from Springfield Armory's 1911s was because of MIM... that and the fact that they were outsourced to brazil... not a country I'd want building my firearms, especially if i'm going to throw down ~$700 for one. Thats why I opted for an actual GI issue 1911, all steel, and will probably last longer than me if cared for, might not have the same tight tolerances as today's but... it works
