Getting prob'ed regularly is healthy, I got so much stuff done yesterday.

In other news, Nerf is making halo guns now (or will be shortly). If that pistol doesn't put holes in drywall at 30 feet, it's not a faithful reproduction.

Cycled everything perfectly and it didn't explode, so my tinkering is going well so far. I'll test it on the bench this weekend and see if I messed up the accuracy any, but I was able to consistently hit a steel plate at 100m with just a sling after doing a quick and dirty field zero.

I built a shooting bench so I can actually do some long range shooting. Took probably six hours total over three days.





The rear post that connects the seat is a little bit crooked which makes the seat kind of skewed a little bit but I'm gonna fix that tomorrow.

I lucked out having a roommate thatís a professional machinist with her own shop, your setup is a bit more ideal. Itís also a bit easier to hit this thicker one on accident, but despite that so far Iíve been loving it and Iím finally getting comfortable shooting with my left side. Hell of a lot less eye fatigue if you donít have to close your other eye.

I've started hiking a lot more outside of the park so I can do some legal suppressed plinking during lunch.

Also because it's getting to the point where I can't get a parking spot if I arrive later than 730 after an hour and a half drive CO's full up and I don't quite know where else to go

There's a lot of cool, less crowded stuff up in the Poudre canyon, but that's more of a drive for you. It's also not very accessible in the winter unfortunately. Gonna try and hit it some more this coming summer. Would like to get another enormous pano shot of this spot, but with more interesting light/clouds.



But yeah I was born and raised here and it's not what I remember at all anymore.

Lugers are loving cool

Look what I found:



e: This is the 1:1 Luger model I made and shipped to a guy whom I paid to make a modern custom holster with retention so I could shoot my Luger in gun games.

After tapping my fingers a little when the deadline came and went he eventually... shipped me an off the shelf airsoft grade MOLLE holster which, while technically it did fit the Luger, really wasn't what I agreed to. He made some other (so-so) custom stuff for me as well as part of the same deal but the holster was the only thing I truly gave a poo poo about

Oh hey, I got one of those last week!



I couldn't figure out why my last round hold open wasn't working so I started reading Luger forums and saw a bunch of people complaining about missing hold open latches. Started to freak out since I guess those things need to be hand fitted, but after more reading apparently the commercial models don't have that feature. So that's disappointing...at least I didn't buy a broken gun?



Haven't shot it yet, I'm scared - it's 104 years old. Should I be looking for some kind of light loads to test it out first, or just go for it with whatever standard 115g I have on hand?

First off, picture so I don't forget this time:



(It's also a Luger. It's name is Georg)

Anyways, the gun should be fine. It doesn't look like it's hosed from rust or anything so I wouldn't worry about it. If it makes you feel any better, I shot a 106 year old rifle last week and am planning on shooting a 141 year old rifle in a few months (need to order some stuff).

The main bits to really take a look at are the firing pin/striker (there is a little ledge under it that can shear off) and the extractor. If those parts are numbered on your gun and they match I would probably swap in some replacements eventually just to be on the safe side. Running a few boxes through before you do won't hurt anything, but it's still a point of failure. There are other parts like the toggle that can break, but that's usually wen using way too hot ammo.

Speaking of ammo, I'd stick with brass cased ammo. I've read about the ejectors chipping on steel ammo cases. I don't know the truth of that, but it's not like brass cased 9mm is hard to find so whatever. Just avoid really hot ammo. Years back the thing to warn people about was surplus SMG ammo or the Israeli "NATO" marked rounds. These days I'd avoid that if you stumble across it, but really just don't go putting +P+ defensive loads through it. I tend to reach for WWB. It's poo poo ammo, but it's also pretty gentle.

If you have trouble cycling your gun you might need to get beefier ammo. There's a bit of a myth about it needing the really hot poo poo, which caused a lot of guns to get damaged with SMG ammo over the years, but the springs were calibrated for stronger loads than the typical white box BS. If the springs are a bit broken in, though, you should be fine.

My luger had trouble cycling and funny ejects until I swapped out all the springs shortly after I bought it.

At the time I simply bought a Luger Spring Pack from Brownell's. Ah, those were the days
