  1. 1911A1 too big for EDC? A smaller answer

    I have had a 1911 much of the time since I was first issued one as an MP in 1974. My current 1911A1 is a Rock Island that I put WW2 brown grips and an arched mainspring housing with a lanyard ring....

    I picked up a Rock Island 1911A1. Put WW2 brown grips and an arched mainspring housing with a lanyard ring. Looks and shoots great. I had one about 7 or 8 years ago and carried it on a Homeland...

    Yep, I shot it. The Mk 4 .38 Webley I also got actually shot better. The enfield shot way low, and had some cycling issues. Plan on breaking it down and thoroughly cleaning it.

  5. The lowly British.38/200 Revolver Cartridge.. Not as underpowered as you might think!

    Having just done an extensive article for SASS's Cowboy Chronicle about the .38 (Long) Colt cartridge being the most mis-understood and underrated cartridge of the American West, it got me interested...

    An older gentleman came into the gun shop with the 38 Webley. Said it was his father's for many years. He did not know where he got it, but he had it in the 50s when the seller was a kid. He...

    Picked up an extra latch spring from Gun Parts Corp for both the Webley and Enfield. That is the only part I ever had to replace on my prior English break tops. About $13 each, so good to have on...

    Any way to tell its year of birth, or whether it is a Mk 1* or MK1**. I have heard that the Mk 1** had some safety issues.

    Thanks! I am guessing it is a MK1* then. It is really tight. Lots of patina and external wear, but bore is awesome. I've got a few rounds of the 174 FMJs that came witrh it, but I am going to...

    The .38/200 loading with the 200 grain long lead bullet is so marginally stable that it tumbles immediately. The light 145s can go through, but the 200s rarely did. The long nosed 174 FMJs tumbled...

    I agree that it isn't the best candidate. Cans work best with sub-sonic rounds. We had IMI 157 grain subsonic 9mm for our suppressed UZIs and MP5s. 300 Black Out ARs with 16" barrels are best with...

    I think it was for a suppressor. Looks like the thread patterns I have seen on Cobray/Sionics suppressor threaded barrels in the 70s/80s. Could have been a Spec Ops carbine. I remember years ago...

    I diod a 7.62x39 build a few years ago. I liked it, though it was not even close to being as accurate as my 5.56 M4gery, even with my Nosler Varmagedon 124 grain reloads. The biggest reason I...
