New Problem!

We have some fellows shooting .45 that have small pistol primers. They don't bother picking up their brass and of course we think we are getting some nice new free brass only to find out its the small primered stuff. Not sure where it comes from but its a pain laying around getting mixed with the good stuff.

So? Separate it and load with small primers. Nothing wrong with that.

But it will be after the spring winds die down before I do that.

G'day Folks,

I subscribe to this thread to drool over the hardware you blokes have over there. I was watching a movie (Total Recall) and saw one of the prop handguns in it, it was based on a revolver of some sort but the chamber that fired was the bottom one, not the top one as is the case on real ones.

Has there ever been a real revolver that used this set up? I'm thinking it would give a more straight line from the muzzle through the wrist to the arm making less upward movement on recoil something that a lot of manufacturers are tying to achieve. Obviously there would be issues with the height of the sight line.

I wasn't sure where to ask this but I'm hoping the brains trust here can tell me.

Cheers

Well, there you go, thanks. I've never seen that before, any info about it? does that system have any advantages over the traditional setup? I guess there's lots of hardware we never get to see over here.

Edit: I googled the Rhino, very impressive, ugly but somehow attractive at the same time. ( I think there's a JM thread along those lines).

I got to handle one of those last week, but not shoot it. It is a neat idea, probably works well, but is one ugly revolver for $999. I'll pass.

The designer pioneered the idea with his Mateba Autorevolver. Which I think is more cool, but even more complicated and less practical.

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mateba

LifeSizePotato on youtube has some videos on how the rhino and mateba work and what it's like to shoot them.

Thanks fellas, some good feedback. I clicked on the pic as speedo66 suggested, got the info on the 2" Rhino, thanks. Saw the pic on that page of the 6" Rhino, what a fugly gun that one is.

I think that design looks best with the shorter barrel, the 6" one is just wrong.

Cheers

If you are shooting a M1911, you do need to get the extractor and recoil spring tuned. If they are correct the brass will make a nice small group somewhere not too far from the shooter.

Ooops, I did it again...

Bought the Beretta PX4 Storm in .40 S&W. Have not shot it yet, so no range report.

Decided that since the CO Legislature passed all them new laws, I aught to 'celebrate' by getting another piece. Looked at the LC9 but decided that the full sized just made more sense, since I shoot mine.

Pics will follow at a future shooting date.

Nice to hold, looks like it's going to be easy and fun to shoot - sure is a unique design with the rotary barrel lockup mechanism.

Dealer had another FNH, the FNX-40, same as my FNS but with the external hammer - I was tempted, mainly as the FN comes with THREE mags per new gun and they are interchangable between the two models. And the wife would not be able to tell the difference!

But I decided that was sort of paranoid and the point was to have a variety of pistols - in this case, sharing the cartridge makes sense as it reduces inventory needs, and will make reloading easier.

My Glock does but guns like the LC9, AR, and Hi point 9mm carbine flip them out about 15 feet away.

Just finished this project today....




Don't be fooled... It's just an off the shelf Remington 700SPS in .243Win. wearing an AICS stock.
'Had the barrel shortened and a brake installed... The 'smith I use makes these brakes himself... They're very effective.
Scope is a Bushnell 4200 6-24x50.. Warne rail and rings.
'Also had an extended bolt handle installed.

'Plan is to vapourise gophers with it.
