    If the 6oz doesn't work, try the Kaw Valley extended 8-10oz buffer. I run the 7.5oz in my 9mm. Works amazingly with that decresed travel time.

    Looking forwarding to hearing how this goes. Do you have a commercial pistol can to compare it to?

    Curious if it really is just 8oz. And how it sounds being 1.25” OD.

    I don't have anything to compare it to. A buddy of mine has an Obsidian in jail, but I'll have mine doen before he gets it. I have seen several videos of their .22 kits. They sound (or don't sound?) pretty good.

    It’s Billy’s...I was just posting the pics for him. Description says:

    Casted Frame
    Custom Duracoat Colors in ( H&K Black And Accuracy Intl Dark Earth ) . Pachmayr Grips

    and also:

    These OUTSTANDING SURPLUS FN Browning High Powers Have Been Refinished by Mach 1 Arsenals’ custom techs. This firearm has been completely disassembled “down to the last pin and spring”. Each part has been inspected for excessive wear & tear then cleaned in a ultrasonic cleaner to insure a smooth functioning pistol. Most parts are basted with aluminum oxide to remove the old finish and custom Duracoated for a fine & durable finish. Each pistol is then safety and function tested to ensure for your satisfaction on the range. These firearms were just imported into the United States from Israel by Mach 1 Arsenal. They’ll make a great addition to your military arms collection and a joy to use on the range. The pistols were a part of a law enforcement/ corrections officer turn in program and assisted in the protection of Israel. We are happy to give our customers the first chance of owning one of the finest pistols ever produced for the western world’s Armed Forces and Law Enforcement Officers, Graded to be in Very Good Condition with Duracoated Finish.

    I know I am just messing with him. He asked me if I had a line on some Spegels. I told him the only ones I have are on guns in the safe and I am keeping them. I did reach out to a few people to try to locate some for him. :) Spegels are the best BHP grips ever!

    I haven’t bought a damn thing and anything I “might” have bought was lost in a tragic boating accident at a location I can’t remember because I wasn’t there.

    Bought one of these...

    7775425C-0A4A-4D12-9C78-D8AB28D6CBE0.jpeg

    ...and a SBA3 MOE EPT LBK, and a SplitFix.

    But I’m not building a pistol, or a rifle. :D

    300 round of 124gr Browning 9mm. It looks like Academy might finally be out of this stuff which has been selling for $.17 a piece with free shipping if you get two boxes. Looks like in store only at this point.

    Also picked up a base gun for a custom 1911 build from @KongDonkey . One of the new Colt O1911C with pre 70 series rollmarks and National Match Barrel. I plan to shoot some rounds through it and then send it to Don Williams of the Action Works for a Retro Build. Here are some quick Iphone pics.

    Since my Shield 9 is being demoted to truck gun status, I picked up some Hyve +2 base plates for my 8 round magazines.

    Also grabbed 75 targets since we are now members of Woody’s. Going to have to invest in some steel targets at some point.

    Finally, picked up a Pocket Pro 2 to introduce some stress in my girls and my shooting sessions.

    I just saw where Starline is selling 30/06 brass. I ordered a bunch. I think I will retire quite a few of the cases I have been using for a while after I shoot the loads in them.

    More 9mm ammo. I finally got back to my proper par level. Now I just need to shoot and buy at the same level to maintain.

    Compact Prismatic Optic 3.5X32 Dual Illuminated Scope for my AR 15, got it on sale at extreme tactical, so far it seems to be decent for a cheap optic, cant see spending more money than my firearm cost for a scope or optic of any kind, and there are some pretty good low cost optics available, plus got ten more magazines and a case of 223 ammo along with 9mm and alot of 22lr for plinking, cant pass up those cheap prices on good rimfire ammo like CCI, thats it for this month, gotta save for next months purchases

    Now I need the 45acp version RIA makes.

    Already swapped the grips out for charcoal packmeyrs. The g10s look nice but they're cut so agressively that I'm confident they would turn my palms into hamburger. Planning on buying a Ed Brown drop in (hopefully or ill get it fitted) 38 super barrel for it.

    Also got a iwb holster for it. I'm not a huge fellow but I can hide this on my person well enough.

    Also got a set of Walkers Razor XVs so I can have inconspicuous ear protection ready to roll when I'm out carrying.

    Over/Under Cerakote finish with rare earth magnets in the barrel to allow loading with the gun pointed up in a duck blind or open carrying thru a field without the shells falling out.

    CZ Drake All Terrain in 12 gauge from Foothills Gun and Pawn in Longview, NC. Best local gun shop in western North Carolina. Sure I could have paid overall $50 dollars less on line but they have to support families too.

    With exception to the one employee I can't stand, that's my go-to shop in the event I can't get something from a distributor myself.

    Magpul ODG MOE+ grip (from BST) and trigger guard (from PA). Adding a little splash of color to a new build. Already had these couple pieces in hand:

    Got my 229 out of Jail today!

    The poor thing was in purgatory just east and south of Raliegh at

    Brocks Custom Gunworks.
    9668 Covered Bridge Road
    Zebulon, NC 27597

    (919) 750-7007

    https://brockscustomgunworks.wixsite.com/website

    Milled the top off the slide/drilled/tapped for Vortex Venom RDS. Installed Trijicon suppressor height night sights and CeraKoted the slide and the frame. He had the gun about 2 weeks (his normal turnaround time) and I think he did an excellent job and at a reasonable price point.

    I am very pleased and I hope you folks give him (ex-LEO) a chance to do some work for you!
