I would clean it. I have an old GI style nylon brush, but an old toothbrush along with some solvent will take the fouling off the slide and frame. You don't want to allow it to build up because it...

I don't care for two tone pistols much either, but that's my personal choice. I just go over to EGW and order an angle bore bushing in the appropriate color, and I like that I can measure the slide...

I really lucked out with the better half's WASR-I bought 1000 virgin W-W cases for $80 and went to Lyman's 50th to look for a load. They recommended a starting load of H335 and Hornady 123 grain V...

I like my 01991 a lot. The new dimpled barrel feed ramp seems to help with feeding non-ball ammo without any fuss. There was a hint of creep in the trigger pull, but an extra fine ceramic stone took...

At the minimum, I would replace the fps with and oversized part which requires fitting to the slide. It solves a lot of problems such as extractor clocking. Also as mentioned above, examine the...

Right now, the price difference between a basic Ruger commander and the Colt is about $25, the Ruger being stainless and the Colt blued, if the material is a game changer for you. I would opt for the...

I don't use any of the powders you list, but the 200 gr LSWC is pretty much my range fodder using Bullseye, AA2 and AA5. I seat to 1.250 OAL and crimp to .471 and it feeds out of my stock Colt 7 and...

If you don't reload, the 9MM is going to be cheaper to feed, if that is a consideration. If you do reload, you will get better accuracy regardless of which caliber you go with.
