Did you get your inspiration from Makarov mags?

ButchA----------- Your last name is Ammon? Guys, A god walks among us!

I have a 2000+ year old coin that I had made into a necklace for my wife (without damaging/altering the coin)

The dude on the coin is Zeus Ammon, a horned angry god in the sky type character from back in the days of Alexander in Egypt.

That's super cool.

The only trait I have that's mythical god-like is that I too like to hook up with mortal women!

Sistema1927 ---------- No inspiration from the Makarov magazine. More from the Luger, Woodsman, etc. magazines that have the Side Nub.

Side Nubs, however, cannot be used in a gun that's not been cut/grooved to accommodate one.

Another drag with the Nub-Style load-assists is that a centerfire spring needs to be stronger than a rimfire's because it lifts more weight.
So the nub is painful.
The Luger actually came with a loading tool that gave the nub the type of comfortable flat area my magazine features.

here's a pic of a Makarov magazine to show the cut-out that Sistema is speaking of. Note that this opening has presented no problems in the operation of Makarovs.

Soviet stuff tends to work & be very robust. Usually not pretty, but very practical.


Btw, Sistema's are great pistols. I love mine.

Kewl. Like the guy with the patent for the hole in doughnuts. Designs that make sense.

It was always a great shift when you caught a roller! (it didn't happen very often)
Did you get your "10851" pin?


"jjfitch" just initials and last name!


Not too original but it works for the several forums I frequent, guns, cars, trucks, dogs and the American Revolution!!

Ha ha ha ha... Hardly! I'm just a regular dude, nothing fancy. The son of an IBM engineer, and grew up in upstate New York.

My first 1911 (series 70 mk iv), that once belonged to my grandfather. Also first gun I ever fired @ 8 yrs old. He bought it from a Cleveland Police officer my father worked with in the 80s. When I first had problems with it, found myself here seeking advice. Appreciate this forum greatly, as I have learned quite a bit in being here.

Leftover handle from CB radio days. There were too many redbeards on the air and it is a play on my last name also. More apt now anyway cause the beard isn’t close to red anymore.
Magazineman, those mags are neat. Is the access port on both sides?
Duh...rechecked the pics.duh.

No I did not get one from CHP. I was not a dedicated traffic officer. Here is the current requirements from CHP to qualify for it.

California DOJ 10851 Award
The CHP developed the 10851 Awards Program to recognize the superior efforts made by CHP and allied law enforcement personnel who have met specified criteria toward the reduction of stolen vehicle crimes. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) and the California State Highway Association award 10851 pins to recognize officersí superior efforts in the recovery of stolen vehicles and arrests for auto theft. In a 12 month period, officers who meet the following criteria receive recognition:

6 (six) in custody stolen vehicle recoveries or 12 recoveries with a minimum of 3 (three) in custody,
Development of information that results in the ID of an auto theft ring resulting in 2 (two) or more suspects,
Recovery of 10 (ten) or more stolen vehicles.

passx--------- Scroll back a few posts to see them. It's an easy-loading gun magazine design. It applies to any box mag including Double Stacks. But I don't sell them.

I had made a large bunch for 1911's for function & market testing. They worked great & I sold them all except a few for my own use, which are NOT for sale. I don't want to be in the manufacturing business.

So no, I'm not in the publishing biz. Though in the 1990's I worked for BMW Roundel, a car magazine. I drew a comic strip for them for a few years called Skitz Von Bimmerhead.

This is pretty cool, learning a bit about the people behind the names on the forum!

I've hiked and climbed all of Colorado's 14,000 ft peaks and the more difficult ones, by their technical routes, many times. Also many of the 13K and 12K ft peaks too as well as the mountaineering peaks in The Tetons, Wind Rivers and the big walls in Yosemite and the rock routes in Eldorado Canyon and RMNP here in Colorado. I'm still up on the peaks, backpacking too... but honestly, I'm slowing down, just a bit. 😉

This is cool reading about how, or why your monikers came to be.

Mine was a response from an acquaintance regarding a new automobile I had just purchased.

If you're military or former military my "moniker" should be easy to understand; 'CWO4" is for Chief Warrant Officer Four (pay grade), USCG for United States Coast Guard, and the Ret is for retired.

I use that screen name for almost all discussion for; on a few other forums I use ''iwantthatknife" which is the name of my knife selling website.

Due to a minor issue with my balance, I don't ride motorcycles anymore. But I was absolutely addicted to them for many years before that.

As a result of that addiction I was allowed to participate in, and had the good fortune to complete, an event which most people have never heard of, that being the Iron Butt Rally.
