'97s made prior to the '30s also have short forcing cones. This is easily fixed by a smith (you could even do it yourself if you feel like buying tools you'll use once), though.

I was thinking of just scrounging up another barrel for modding, but again, it went *fast*. I guess it was gone less than ten minutes after I left.

Random lurker with limited knowledge and I have a question. Is/was there ever a pump action rifle that wasn't a shotgun? I'm aware of one hybrid that shot both shells and 5.56(?) from two different barrels. The name escapes me now. But was there a pump action rifle? I googled a bit but nothing came up. I'm bad at google.

The Remington 7600 is a pump action rifle.

The pump .22 (Fieldmaster? Speedmaster?) my dad has is pretty solid, but he bought that in the '80s at latest since he used it for rabbits while working as a farmhand. There's a pretty massive difference in quality between old Remingtons and new ones (I know you know this, I'm saying it for those that don't).

Fair enough. I should specify that I'm specifically talking about the steaming pile of Remington 7600. Just absolute trash and I can't wait to sell my dad's so it stops offending me when I open my safe.

Yeah there's a few local manufacturers that make pump action rifles that are at least similar.

How big of a pain in the neck is it to install fixed sights on pistols? I've got a USP with terrible aftermarket sights and I'd like to put the original sights back on it. Also considering fancy sight upgrades for my 43x.

One of my least favorite things about firearms is sighting them in. Is the process for the pistol basically just pop the new ones on and hope it's lined up right? Is there much adjustment that needs to be done?

I do most of my own work on my firearms but I'm trying to decide if I want to do this myself or drag it out to a local smith based on how annoying it might be.

While I cannot specifically speak to sight swapping on a USP, all I needed to do a couple slides was one of these -

https://www.amazon.com/StarONE-Univ...18598181&sr=8-7

and one of there -

https://www.amazon.com/Raiseek-Fron...2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==

Considering the local shop charges $40 to swap sights, the tools paid for themselves by the end of the second gun.

I'm not really Mr. Fixit, but this was a simple thing to do.

If you want the sights really well-aligned, it might be worth it to take it to a smith who has a Ransom rest or something similar.

Just remember that front sight tool was specifically for a Glock. Make sure you get something that works with your particular gun. The back sight pusher works on anything flat sides slide.

The good thing is if something doesn't work and you order it from Amazon, it's a pretty painless return.

I'll have to double check but I'm pretty sure the front sight just pushes in, too. I also have Glocks so the other tool can't hurt.

If the $45 includes shipping it back, that seems totally fair to me. Time is money, friend. And you've wasted their time with a bad deal.

The buyer didnt waste the FFL's time with a bad deal, the seller did. If there is any return shipping or fees, the seller should cover them. If it was damaged in shipping he should eat the cost or get reimbursed by the shipping company.

It isnt like he changed his mind and asked the FFL to.return the gun because he didnt want it.

Oh, they fit - it’s just the plastic. The plates switch fine - it’s the little nubbin of plastic that keeps it from seating. 10 minutes and I’ll have them trimme and perfectly usable.
Also, trying to find someone to buy 3 mags for a very specific gun would end with me having 3 mags sitting in a cabinet for years.

Oh hey, whatup "ooops" buddy. Went looking for CA-compliant flash hiders for someone recently, found a place with 'em, and they also had real ones - so I ordered a second duckbill, needed one anyway.

Except I was still on the "fake" page, and now have a slotless duckbill. Quality is pretty good, though.

It'll go into the PIF thread, I expect, because the odds of someone wanting to buy a NY/CA-compliant duckbill are kinda long...

Quick Question -

On a Ruger Mk IV with a threaded bull barrel, what size compensator/suppressors work? Is it 1/2 - 28 or it there more to it?

You’ll want a rimfire suppressor since 22lr is dirty as heck and it will need to be taken apart to clean. Most are threaded 1/2-28.

Looking at the Turnbull site, the Mark IV model says 1/2-28 threads. The 22/45 model doesn’t say, but I’d be shocked if it wasn’t 1/2-28.

The point is that unless you're stretched to the limits of your budget and have copious free time, you're probably better off selling the MKIII mags and buying MKIV mags than trying to mutilate your MKIII mags into MKIV compatibility.

Reselling 10-round magazines for high production volume handguns isn't something that takes months on an auction site if you've got them priced to move. You may even be able to find a local pawn shop or dealer that's got a MKIII that's missing magazines.

90%+ of rimfire is 1/2-28 threads. That's really all there is to it. You can get some nifty QD adapters, but those aren't worth the cost/hassle/length to me.

I've never shot a handgun with a comp. Considering they cost all of tens of dollars, I might grab one for the Turnbull that can be swapped off if it looks awful.

Thanks everyone, for letting me know I'm not missing something stupid.
