Miscellaneous 10mm Firearms / Kriss Vector Carbine in 10MM
« on: November 17, 2017, 05:43:31 PM »
Well I recieved my carbine today. Unfortunately it was close to dark when I got home I was able to run one mag of 200 grain WFN GC cast load of over some Power Pistol. I can say this the carbine is unusual looking but is everything they advertise. Muzzle rise nonexistent decent accuracy. I mounted an ultra dot still need to sight it in. But I am very impressed so far. Range report after deer season.

Range reports / Bullet tests
« on: October 22, 2017, 07:50:56 AM »
Decided to try some of the Gold Dots that loaded up in my model 40 and test some cast bullets as well.

The test media is water soaked newspaper and magazines. I shot from distance of 30 yards.

I have chronographed the loads yet I will and post it when I do.

180 grain Gold Dot penetrated 8" there was allot of disruption of the news print for 2-6" almost explosive like. The Gold Dot was classic mushroom but the lack of penetration was rather interesting. The load was a max published load of Power Pistol. Recovered bullet weight 114.0 grains.

200 Grain GC WFN cast bullet that I cast from an Accurate Mould loaded over 7.9 grains of Power Pistol the initial disruption of the wet paper was impressive it was 4" wide and tapered off about 7-8" in then the bullet continued through the wet paper for 26" exited out the back through a 1" cedar board and is in the berm somewhere.

Any of the embers here own one of these. If you do can you share your impressions?

I have had a 5.7x28 and ran a lot of rounds through them. Liked how they handled and loved the capacity. You could run that gun very fast. The lack of actual info on real performance in actual defense  applications is what made me not carry them.

Range reports / Remington R1 Hunter 10mm
« on: November 24, 2016, 04:03:41 PM »
I Picked this gun up late yesterday after dark. Went hunting today so not allot time today to shoot many brands of ammo.

The gun has a really nice bronze finish. The VZ grips are great for a solid purchase on the weapon. Even in recoil the grips help keep that gun in the same postion in your hand and really help with follow up shots. They look great. Frame to slide was nice and tight, but smooth. Comes with two magazines. Both fit well and locked up tight but dropped free when disengaged. The trigger is outstanding break crisp with little noticeable creep. The front and rear slide serrations are sharp and well performed.
The front and rear sights are outstanding and very easy to aquire. I will change the light pipe to green only because I prefer that color.

I had some 180 grain loaded under max to try they had some issues mainly the slide was held open slightly and would not go completely into battery. But I will blame that on tight new gun and low power loads. When I switched to the 200 grain WFN the gun ran flawless and the accuracy with the cast bullets was outstanding. After adjusting the sights for the cast loads I ran two mags full at 40 yards and held everything in a 6" group. That was off hand by the way. The recoil of this gun seems so light even compared to the Model 40 Glock.

I am very impressed with this gun of course the 1911 Platform is my favorite. I have it dialed in so I will carry this gun hunting the rest of this week. Hopefully I get chance to put a nice tasty whitetail in the freezer.

10mm semi-auto handguns / Model 40 Glock ordered
« on: December 22, 2015, 05:31:30 PM »
Well it seems my model 20SF with Lone Wolf Longslide will have some company.

I ordered a new model 40 today. Looking forward to wringing it out. Most likely leave it stock and run few hundred rounds through it . Then decide to get some after market upgrades.

Gunsmithing / Pyramid Trigger drop in for Glock 20
« on: December 14, 2015, 04:23:41 PM »
Did the delux drop in trigger assembly gold trigger with red trigger release Kit with the Ti striker and plunger easy install about 20 minutes start to finish.

Outstanding difference the width of the drop in trigger is excellent and the travel is short and precise crisp. 200% improvement from the standard factory. Very predictable and no more gritty feel prior to the break.
