One post because this is my first post. Two carbines because... well, I bought a used 995 monkey gun back in '13 and now it looks like it's gonna get a brand new stablemate in the form of a 4595. I shoot mostly cast bullets in the 995, and will probably do so in the 4595 as well.
My planet of the apes gun has never been back to visit Mom, although I did get a couple free parts (F&R sights; it just had a cheap scope on it when I got it) from the mothership.
I have to smack my C9 in the aft end of the slide to get the first round to chamber. Not fun any more.
So I got my C9 back from MOM after a barrel swap some misc cycling probs. Now it hits the target and cycles great; except I get a lot of first round hangs when I rack the first round and I have to smack it the a... Thought this would go away but it has not. Never a problem with auto chambering a round after firing.
I finally found a load that really shoots well in my 995. Shot about an inch group at
50 yards off bench rest.
Hornady 147 gr FMJ , 3.1 gr Universal. Could not get the Berry's 147 plated to shoot well no marker what powder I tried. Top group is 3.3 gr Universal Bottom is 3.1 gr Universal
Power went out for about 5 hours today (Texas Solidarity?). Since I don't need power to play with the press I figured it was a good time to prep all my once fired factory 45acp brass. While cleaning primer pockets I found I have 32 rounds marked "Federal 45 auto" that are small pistol primered. How normal is that and can I use them in the same recipes as the large pistol primer ones? And yes, I'll be keeping them separate.
Being the son of a third generation firearms/sporting goods dealer definitely has some perks, I have came across some really great deals on some really nice guns over the years and have build a pretty impressive collection in my opinion. Every once in a while someone will bring something in to sell or trade that has me drooling...lol. Some of my favorites that come to mind that have gone to my personal collection include a beautiful custom engraved Ruger No.1 in 375 H&H mag, a Winchester model 12 serial number 2212 , first year of production-1912, a Belgium Browning Hi Power Centennial 1978 chrome plated Pistol w/display Case in like new condition to name a few. Today was one of those days, while not as valuable as the before mentioned guns it is definitely one of my favorites and becoming very difficult to come by
