    I have seen some (incorrectly) converted S&W 2nd models which had the recoil shield thinned. This removes the headspacing step (allows more cartridges to drag) and thins the firing pin bushing.

    The Boers were so short of ammunition that they paid their soldiers for fired cartridge brass salvaged from the battlefield.

    congrats on the ARMY 1909!

    1909s are very hard to find here, I have not yet managed to accumulate one - and worse than that, I have missed 2 Navy/ USMC 1909s during the last few years.
