Years of experience and hundreds of thousands of rounds under my belt, I'd probably trust a new Glock out of the box. My break-in experience with my pro raptor would lead me to believe that I'd never...

Bushinless barrel recoil spring replacement

I've long understood how to field strip Kimbers with bushingless barrels. Since a small, "l-shaped" piece of wire is used to retain the spring during field stripping, how does one actually change...

I recently acquired a Pro Raptor II with bushingless barrel. Seems to be extremely accurate...considering it's not a Glock. ;) May be after 500 rounds, it'll run like my Glocks. ;)

Well, guys, you probably shouldn't expect it to be like a new Les Baer, etc., since you're only paying $150 for it! ;)

Guilty as charged! I'm using a Huntertown Guardian 9. Works well, also, with my .300 Blackouts (subsonics only). I'd guess that most of the major brands would work well.

That can sure looks...

I'm "breaking in" a Kimber Pro Raptor II. I'm not having to suffer through malfunctions. I'm spending about $.15 per round for my hardball.
