thanks for this info. i made a few and they work well. that swinging sil target is sweet.
Love a TRP
I almost bought a TRP and then found out they were assembled in the US from Brazilian parts (or so I was told by SA). Still nice though.
One of the better production 1911's.
All thier 1911's are forged in Brazil.
Interesting that tula caused you problems, I have a hi power and a cz75 and shoot tula and never had a problem. I would think a hi power is capable of shooting just about anything being such an old design.Ive shot 9mms from the 60s Might need some break-in. Mine is a 1977 and was wondering if yours being new is rated to shoot p ammo? HP is my favorite gun, always wished it could be outfitted with a decocker DA/SA
I know, that was my point. They are assembled either in Brazil or the USA (and so stamped Brazil or USA).
Just found 9mm on lucky gunner if your interested had a lot in stock, better hurry.
Never mind all target ammo is gone, only thing left is expensive personal defense ammo,,not that the target ammo was cheap, paid 40cents a round for federal 124g, bought a 1000. Target shooting is gonna be expensive this summer.
^^^^ Yup. I'll be spending alot more time with the muzzel loaders this summer. I've got a bucket of lead and 4lbs of pyrodex to get rid of. Havent checked on the availibility of #11 and musket caps yet.
I love mine.. Easy to shoot and surprisingly accurate.
Well, up to Tula, I had not found an ammo too cheap for the Hi Power to eat.
I was having problems loading them in the mags and I suspect that they had a wierd bullet ogive and were possibly a bit too long. Also, those cheap steel cases don't slide all that well either. I guess I am suprised I had as few problems as I did.
I've shot at least 800 rounds at this point. I don't think it's rated for plus P loads. It's a lovely piece, but it's not perfect either - but I like the way it works well enough.
Yep, Hi-Powers are really great guns, and one of the most comfortable to hold and shoot, but in my experience they really don't like to be fed hot loads.
With mine, loads that worked fine in my S&W 59, Springfield P9C, and several Glocks all showed excessive pressure signs when fed to three different Hi-Powers, and accuracy suffered as well.
Tula Grenaded Glock from M4Carbine.net
I've seen that situation at the range. Wasn't Tula, though. Some off brand, probably high volume reloads of some sort. I'll look for a picture I took of it.
Here it is.
Looks like a reloading screwup. Probably a case full of Bullseye or 231.
Are you familiar with the Hungarian made FEG, P9R? I have one and love it. Copy of the Hi-power with the features you ask for. It will digest anything I feed it. Fit and finish is very good. The only drawback I can find is that it wont accept Hi-power magazines. I do believe Hi-power mags may be modified to work. Heres a link, I hope it works.
Just a couple of photos of my ATI's Both are great guns and real tackdrivers. The Military has a few thousand rounds through it now without a single hiccup. The Titan has around 400 or so rounds through it. I'll put a few hundred more rounds through it before it becomes my EDC.
Great pistols for the money.
Does anyone know if there is such a thing as a 10 round magazine for a S&W 59. (normal is 14 Rd.)
CT is proposing a 10 round magazine maximum and giving people till Oct. 1st to get rid of their "illegal" stuff if it passes. I'd like to be able to keep this pistol, because it was the first I ever bought. 1979.
I think I'd be more concerned about fixing your politicians than becoming compliant though. Or just move down South.
