I have a unique opportunity to offer brand new 1/2×28 OEM Glock threaded barrels for the Glock 17. As you’re most likely aware, Glock recently began offering threaded barrels in the US, but with metric threads. Not the smartest move considering all the 1/2 by 28 suppressors around the country. Ballpark cost for a threaded barrel $225ish. I need to know whether to do a batch, or just a few for myself.
Anyone interested in threaded Glock barrels, please chime in here.
Just spent a day making photos and videos, chatting with friends and shooting Vepr 12 and FG42. Great overcast weather, talented and well-equipped WW2 reenactor model, and a good day for me in terms of accuracy. FG42 with iron sights shot 3MOA with Tula ball and 2MOA with Black Hills match, and had zero malfunctions over the 60 rounds fired. We shot only a few rounds through Vepr 12 to verify zero, but Brenneke “home defense” slugs cloverleafed at 25 yards (iron sights also). Recoil was minimal with both guns.
Top rail designed to match AR15′s height over the stock comb for comfortable sight picture, a small side rail and a hollow forend with integral weapon light: all made by my friend Paul’s Gear Head Works. 9mm Tavor conversion is fun to shoot. Mepro 21M sight turned out to be too bright for small targets but works very well on full-sized silhouettes.
Recently, I was present at a Condition 1 beginning AR15 class. One of my models attended, I took photos. At the end of the class, we set up one of the 3D targets from IDTS (designed by my friend Tatiana Whitlock) to demonstrate the awesome power of my little Armalite.
Until recently, I used a 10ft x 20ft popup tent for getting softer light on sunny days. Bought for $1200, the tent lasted five years and was well worth the expense and the effort required to set it up. A couple of weeks ago, the tent was damaged by a storm and repairing it would take a while. That prompted me to try a more portable solution than the 90-pound pop-up.
In movie-making, the standard solution is silk stretched on a frame and raised on two stands. Due to the heavy-duty stands and sandbags required to keep it in place, the entire set of equipment is actually heavier than the tent, but individual components are much lighter and easier to move.
Dan Coonan is very fond of saying that shooting his gun is an experience. It does have more muzzle flash and recoil and muzzle rise than a typical wonder-9.
Actress Morrigan Sanders, age 16, doesn’t usually shoot Coonans. But not because they kick too much…
…and more because they don’t kick or flash enough. Her toys are chambered in 44Mag and, for more laid-back experience, 45Colt. Full-house 44Mag is a nice handfull even in her large, heavy Astra revolver — enough bang to rattle her braces.
And now you know what girly girls shoot when they aren’t pretending to like pink 25ACP automatics.
