Bought any guns lately? What did you buy?
Wjbk- give us some details on components used, who built it, what is on it for accessories? Just finished my first AR15 build and starting on my next. Pandora’s box when you get into the building of these rifles.
Can’t wait to hit the range tomorrow
Savage Axis II XP in .308Win. Father-in-law purchased for my nephew (his grandson) as a B-day gift. I was tasked with getting it set up. It came w/Bushnell Banner 3x9x40 scope. I replaced the rings w/ Weaver tactical and a Pic rail. Removed stock , cleaned everything up, re-assembled using blue Loctite on all bolts and screws, then bore sighted. Today at range used a mix of S&B and PMC Bronze both in 147gr. Three shot groups between 7/8"-1 1/4" @ 100yds depending how hot the barrel got. Not bad for under $400 first deer rifle for a 18 YO kid to have as his own.
Just checked online, and a standard 1911 has 51 parts . Don't know about 1911A or Commander .
One Shot.... not entirely true. Yes, the 1911 has more parts in a field strip scenario, but not as many as you state.
I bought a Browning Cynergy CX in 12ga. It has a 30 inch barrel and a wood stock. I have had it for about 6 weeks and shoot trap and sporting clays with it. Purchased it from Midwest Shooters Supply in Lomira, Wi. and paid $1570.00 plus tax. Held one yesterday at the Fond du Lac, Wi. Fleet Farm store. They were asking $1639.00 plus tax. My scores have gone up and I'm very happy with my purchase.
I like the 92, breaks down into only 4 pieces. Easy to clean . A 1911 is about 25 pieces .
Only thing I would say is it’s a nice gun to have fun at the range, for home defense there are to many safeties on it. If you are loaded and on safe, you have to flip off the safety and pull the hammer back, unless you are ex military or law enforcement most people wouldn’t be able to do that when it’s needed, why I have a M&P 40 with no safety in a fingerprint safe in the night stand.
I have a Beretta 92, was the first handgun I bought and is my favorite to shoot, I have put thousands of rounds through her of many different brands and have never had a failure…only thing was at first it patterned horrible, I don’t know if the barrel needed to be worn or not but I couldn’t hit anything at first so I bought other guns. Now I reload my own and use 115 gr coated lead bullets and it’s a tack driver. Only other thing was the first time my wife shot it she had her thumb up and it spit it wide open, blood all over
