I'll bet that's quite a light show when shooting magnum loads from the snubbies. What's the muzzle rise like? All I've ever shot is 4" and 6" in the K frames, and 6" in the N frames. I'd love a short...

I assume when you said "carbine", you have a 16" barrel M4 upper? I like my rifle as light as possible for quick handling. I started out with a 13" rail when I built my Blackout, had BUIS and a...

OP could send the gun to me. I'd cut it in pieces for him, just because it's a Glock.

As stated above, Springfield EMP (Officer size) or EMP4 (Commander size). Both are on scaled-down frames and not just bobbed barrel and grip. I have the EMP4 in 9mm, and it is a sweet shooting...

Not like you don't have a ton of choices, even within your budget. For a full-size carry, I'd go 10mm, it's a beast and works very well on a 1911 frame. You also get a couple more rounds than a .45;...

If you'd like to get rid of the thin wood grips off the EMP4, I'll take them. They fit full-size frames and I'd like a set for my A1; they thin the grip on that pistol down perfectly for my hand. I...

If it's shooting 2" high at 3 yards, it's probably dead on at 25. Adjust the rear sight for windage, try it at 15 yards and 25 yards. You may just have to adjust your sight picture for up...

Well Colt IS the original 1911, but the RIA GI model is $355 less. I won't say it's cheaper, that to me is a connotation of quality, and the RIA is a well-crafted pistol. A friend of mine just picked...

First gun I bought with my own money was a S&W M19 with a 6" barrel. Don't remember the dash number, but since I bought it in 1978, it was probably a -2 or -3. It was definitely a pinned and recessed...

As has been already said, just load it and shoot it. Maybe rack it a few times after field stripping for cleaning, to ensure function before loading it and shooting it again.
