FS to MS conversion ??

I'd like to convert my FS to an MS. Will this even work? I expect to have a gunsmith fit the slide and barrel. Also, are these all the parts I'll need (aside from the recoil spring)?

Watched Hickok45’s review. I think it’s a couple of years old. I think he said it was a series 70 but the slide has the hole for the firing pin block. To me, that would seem to suggest the slide...

How’s the barrel lock up? Does the safety go on and off with positive clicks?

Thank you guys for the help. I’m assuming they’re very reliable? I’d like to buy from a small American company but not at the cost of getting stuck with a loser.

Anyone know anything about these? Their website says they have two models, the hand fitted and the pro fitted. They claim the pro fitted is just as good but cost less thanks to modern...

I stand corrected regarding what I said about believing my gun came with an ACT mag. It is definitely an ACT mag. It says so in big letters; don't know how I missed it.

You probably did the right thing pitching the scale; I've owned two of them and never had any luck getting them to retain zero. Having said that, I've been reloading for over 15 years now and I'm a...

I have a similar but different model than yours but I doubt it matters: Mine came with one black magazine. I believe it to be an ACT but I wouldn't swear to it. The gun ran fine with it. When I...

I'm not familiar with the Dillon but is it possible you crushed the primers? A weak firing pin spring would result in primer/firing pin wipe not a failure to fire. It could be that you're hammer...

If factory ammo works fine then I think you should look for a problem with your reloads. You might further investigate the short cycling idea. I wonder if your powder charge isn't too light. I...

If the Remmies are 1.250 and the reloads are 1.220 then it's not 3 thousands it's 30 thousands. Yes, that much could be an issue though it's hard to say. The bullets are likely shaped differently...

Maybe I’m not understanding something. If the problem is the reloads why fool with the mags? The first thing I would check is the COL of the rounds.

Springer firing pin/hammer spring??

Got a used Range Officer. The previous owner did some home gunsmithing on the mainspring housing so I rebuilt it using a 23lb hammer spring. I'm wondering if maybe I didn't use too heavy of a...
