    I had a hard time debating between this one, the CSBL and the CST model. I went with the CSBL and must admit, it is finished right, slicker than goose poop on a dew covered down hill slide and I can’t wait to get more loaded to shoot it again. I...

    TR, not bad for an asthmatic kid from New York. A true “Mans man.” Need more of his type in government leadership. One of the people I’d love to have known.

    The only issue I had using “Tier 2 Loads” was that I ran out of rear sight adjustment and needed a much taller sight to use those loads. One of the reason my “Mountain Gun” went down the road. Should have just put a taller front sight on it.

    I had a no dash 8-3/8” 686 that I still kick myself for letting go down the road. I don’t remember what it went towards. I did get a 586 4” which is as perfect a revolver in 357 Mag as I could ask for. A 5” PC version sounds like the cats meow

    1.260-65 if problems persist. Polish the top of the chamber with 600-1000. Check firing pin hole on breech face for a burr. With the slide off, check extractor tension. New Wilson mags need to be used fully loaded to get spring set. Once...

    Frame porosity = cast as opposed to forged. The other item to consider is flooding the part to allow longer working action can sometimes be detrimental as the solution is caustic and it eating away the surface. Re-read the directions to check...

    I've got over a dozen of his molds and this is the first thing I do after cleaning and assembling the mold. I had one problematic mold that I repeatedly had problems with after pre-heating. I finally disassembled the pins, chucked the up in a...

    If there isn't one closer, look for a saddle shop locally that can professionally mod your existing gear without it looking like an afterthought. I know 5 shot leather could probably do a one off if he had the time and desire and he's just north of...

    Last I knew as an active service member was to fill out an ATF Form 6 and submit. It'll take 4-6 weeks + Corona time for approval. Secure in luggage, declare at port of entry and they will check #'s against approved Fm6. If insufficient time to...

    Is it something not in production anymore. I'd walk myself. Sounds fishy to me for 2bills. My friend is an Internet FFL and ships everything for 30-40 bucks. Handguns USPS and long guns FEDEX with his account. I'd discretely find out the shop...

    125 jacketed and blue dot. I think k the old Speer manual with the powder kernels on the cover listed 8.+ gr (oldstimers, can't recall) but it is almost a case full. It cruises along and was accurate out of my CZ75.
