  1. I saw that in the catalog. Bummer.
  2. It is an extremely accurate gun. Better than my III and that one is super accurate.
  3. Never mind me. It is Mk V barrel. My brain runneth over. Not sure why I thought 4 instead of 5.
  4. 1980 New Model Blackhawk .41 Magnum, 1972 Colt Trooper Mk III .357 Magnum, 2014 S&W Model 617 .22LR, 1973 Colt Trooper Mk III .357 Magnum (w/Mk IV Barrel), 2010 New Model Blackhawk .357Magnum
  5. Don't think I have held and shot a 586. Maybe I touched a 586 at a gun shop, don't exactly remember comparing. What I do know is I don't like distinct finger grooves in hand gun grips. Oddly I don't mind more rounded grooves in Ergo AR grips or Hogue AK grips.
  6. Fits and works great!
  7. Just thought I would drop in and say I got another Trooper. Free! Trooper Mk III with a ribbed Mk IV barrel. The thing is accurate.
  8. It's coming and going due the scourge known as Google+
  9. Got the Real-Avid today. There was a little hidden crust in the 5.56 carriers. Well actually a distinct pile of carbon! Thanks and Merry Christmas.

    I like the forum for all things 10mm.

  12. It's not a time to be sloppy if you are in the firearm business. YOU KNOW BHO and Lib Minions are just drooling for "examples". Why the [censored] Stag didn't realize this is just pure incompetence.
  13. I will try both! Thanks!! I've been using soaking and using non-purpose made tools. They sort of work. To be honest, my 5.56 and my 6.8 and pretty darn tolerant of coked residue. My 10mm, absolutely not. And it cokes up like rich business guy in a bad movie. I scraped the "tail" of the 10mm bolt with a box cutter and scrubbed with hm gun cleaner, and was pretty amazed how clean it became.

    Building a 10mm SBR

    Well.....here is the main deal as I stated before, making a DI pistol caliber rifle is a real PITA. Ron (RMW) makes it seem like it's something to be taken granted. I love his work and I bought his products, but my main two gripes are the above type attitude, and his use of fair cheap AR ancillary parts. Let's focus on the just the bolt and bolt carrier. There is no nice way to put it, but the modified bolt was junky out of the gate and the fit in the carrier was crap - in the sense: It probably would be fine with most all full powered rifle rounds, but the sticking and the digging and the hanging up of the bolt was driving me nuts. I fixed it by: using the stock set up with metal polish on the rings and working it by hand (a LOT of hard junk came out metal - chrome and steel), then I replace the rings with a single piece gas ring. Super duper smooth and easy now. http://www.rmwxtreme.com/#top

    I think I spoke too soon. I mean it shoots OK, but not perfectly. Lots of niggling little issues to work through.....won't go into them, but make no underestimate a gas impinged pistol caliber gun is not so easy to pull off, even in 10mm. The worst battle I've had is with the bolt itself. The bolt must ultimately be VERY easy moving in the carrier, and is not carbon tolerant in the least. One example is the gun firing fine for four-five magazines, and getting nice and warm. Then allow to cool, now it starts misfeeds and stove piping. Oh and it is pretty accurate.
  16. Welcome back, welcome!! I guess I should re-re-reintroduce myself! Joined, have not posted much lately. Just been busy. Haven't even built any guns lately. Did load a bunch of .45ACP and 10mm. Did I do threads for me Glock 20 Longslide and my 10mm AR. Pretty sure I did, will looks......need updated.
  17. I've shot one. And recoil is "manageable". Felt like it pushed back more than the muzzle wanted to flip. It was indoors and you could hear things rattle, even with good ear plugs and good electronic muffs. Things like light fixtures, or anything not bolted to a 14" slab.
  18. So the gun. It should have no problem with these hot loads?
  19. 460 Rowland and 451 Detonics I assume can be loaded hotter than 45 Colt. Do tell us more about these cartridges.
  20. I was actually thinking hot with .45Colt. Reread my post.
  21. Still working..........is this on? Testing, testing?
  22. The slow and the dead. I love my Colt guns. But my gosh, it's like they are on a reduced IQ diet.
  23. http://www.ruger.com/products/redhawk/models.html How hot of .45Colt will it handle. Nice to plink with .45ACP but go hot with .45Colt.
