Just picked this up yesterday. It flew up from Texas to live in Ct.
Have you looked at the Sig P 250?
Very simple and straightforward. It is Double Action Only but that pull isn't the usual 9 - 12 pounds it is 6. No (manual) safety, changing weight of trigger pull or decocker to forget about while under stress. Your choice of caliber 9, 40 or 45 and your choice of size. The 'action module' can be removed from the 'frame', IT is the serial numbered part of the firearm so it can be swapped into another frame to change gun size without having to get another firearm. They sell caliber conversion kits so you can have a full size for range and home use and a compact or sub-compact to carry. I got mine as a compact in .45, holds 9+1 and retailed for $415. So far no complaints though I probably should have bought one with night sights but that is easily remedied as the conversion kits come with them and sell at the Sig Academy (30 miles away from home) for $235. I am thinking that this might actually be the gun that replaces my S&W Highway Patrolman as the bedside gun (for 35 years). I doubt that I will ever shoot it at the range as well as a 1911 but it drops plates well enough that I have no concerns about across the room in the middle of the night.
It may be that even their sub-compact isn't as small as you want for concealment but it would be worth a look.
My new Rugers
I've put about 15 rounds through the Mini. The 1911 is still a virgin!
That will work but ..... I was actually trying to watch them all ... it the order that they were posted. I had watched all the new ones over the last 5 or 6 weeks, then, since I am retired and have no life in between riding here in the summer and fishing in the keys over the winter it seemed like watching how they progressed would be a good idea. It worked for over 500 of them until something changed (or I changed something) yesterday.
I did finally find a way to 'do it', by 'stepping back' one video at a time I got to where I was. Only 120 videos to go (minus the newer ones), I just have to remember not to shut off my computer to avoid going though it again.
Kimber Solo. http://www.kimberamerica.com/solo/solo-carry/solo-carry
not to start an oil brand type argument here, but if i was going to own just one handgun, and expect it to go bang every time, i wouldn't want to be a beta tester. i wouldn't want to try out a new design.
kimber makes some beautiful 1911s. they have lots of happy customers. but to make a motorcycle comparison, i would stick with the honda equivalent (glock, XD, M&P) in this case, not ducati (kimber, HK, walther, etc). reliability vs "performance".
If it HAS to go BANG every time......a good DA Revolver. S&W 686, or similar. No contest.
i can't argue with that.
i should add, even with the most reliable semi-auto, you should replace the mags every few years. especially if you keep them loaded. or at least replace the mag springs.
only have one revolver, SW model 10. not a revolver guy. i've shot it, but haven't fallen in love with it yet.
are the internal hammer ones as reliable? (e.g. SW #640).
Glock G27 in .40 Proven reliability, .40 caliber was chosen by most LEO agencys for a reason.. My carry gun is a 27!
Thanks Signal! Saved a while for this piece!
Bi-Mart had a sale on stainless/synthetic Ruger 10/22 for $199.97. Snagged the last one in stock.
I saw that, damn near grabbed one myself.
Built a Mega billet Ma-Ten a while back and I love their receivers, they machine a nice product....
18" bbl? What handguard is that?
Barrel is a Rainier Arms 18" SS Ultramatch mid lenght gas system and the handguard is a Apex Machining. *I LOVE the Apex and will be using on all future builds, it's very modular as far as adding rails and isn't big and bulky
I see that the handguard clamps onto the bbl nut. Does it have any wobble? What length is that?
The clamp is a very precision (extremely snug) fit in the stock barrel nut, then the handguard slips ove the clamp ans bolts on and there is absolutely NO movement at all. The one on my rifle is a 12.5"
That S&W Model 10 was the standard duty piece for most Canadian LEOs for just about ever. Now they've all gone for SIGs (I think) in .40. We can't buy Model 10's because of the 4" tube. Ruger markets it's DA revolvers with a 4.2" tube, so they're CDN legal.
