I think there may be more then one here that can recognize this little .22 rimfire. It is not a true Beakert as it does not fall within the proper serial number range but it has all the wonderful features the Philip Beakert suggested be placed in this wonderful S&W Hand Ejecter. Smith and...read more

Browning Hi Power Conversion

in Gallery of Guns
by Tye G. Wolfe • | | 4 comments
I seem to like firearms that have the ability to shoot more than one caliber. Just like my Beretta 92FS my Browning Hi Power has been converted so it will also shoot 9mm, .40 S&W and .357 SIG. The original chambering was .40 S&W allowing me to acquire drop in barrels in 9mm and .357 SIG....read more

Processed guns and the results

in Cryogenic Processing for Firearms
by Cajun Cryogenics • | | 5 comments
The first gun I want to talk about is a lever action 45/70 I processed last week. This gun is stainless steel and has a 18in barrel. Before processing it would shoot a 3in group from 100yds and the owner was not unhappy with that because after all it did have a 18in barrel. After processing the...read more

Cajun Cryogenics uses liquid nitrogen as its agent to reduce the temperature of the item to -315F. It is very important that the temperature is reduced ...read more

Which way to go ? .17HMR, .22LR or .22 Magnum?

in The Rimfire Corner
by On Target LLC • | | 1 comment
Personally, I like the good old trusty .22LR round. I have shot it more than any other round over the span of my life. Even with today's economy, this cartridge is still CHEAP! That's why i shot it as a kid and why I continue to shoot it today. I have a .17HMR bolt action rifle in the safe and i...read more

Folks, Had a good time shooting at the range this weekend with my buddy Mark. Attached is a Cowboy who drew down on me at 15 feet. I put 10 .45 rounds in him. If you are ever attacked by a 8 1/2 X 11 inch cowboy you want me by your side. The other picture is of the Taurus .45 Mi...read more

Yes... The .25acp in a revolver

in Gallery of Guns
by Tye G. Wolfe • | | 2 comments
As most look at it the .25acp is not much of a cartridge. All to many think that the .25acp should just be done away with. However in Europe where calibers such as the .32acp and the .380acp are loaded to hotter specifications, so is the .25acp. Actually many do not even know that the .25acp is ...read more

In the early days when the one with the most firepower usually took the day the theory actually has not changed. The only thing that has changed is the package in which the firepower is stored. The below is just one way to make sure you have as much as you can get at the time you need it. If ...read more

Original Post by: Tye Wolfe I have just recently decided to start reloading the .25acp cartridge.

Weapon Melting Points

Some time ago I read through a post by another where he had posted a question about states that had specific laws regarding the sale of handguns which had a specific melting point. I think there was a question specifically about Maryland and whether it has such a law. For some reason that questi...read more

I customized two of these Taurus TCP's in .380, and one worked flawlessly and the other had mag related jamming issues which is common for these small guns. I used Winchester FMJ ammo and Fiochi FMJ. I rapid fired the pink menace at 5 yards and ten feet. These small guns definately take some g...read more

What Gun & What Caliber For You!

I am sure that most have some sort of an idea as to what a "Mouse Gun" is. For the most part we might consider a 'Mouse Gun" in the calibers of .22Lr, .25acp, .32acp and .380acp. But when you consider that a "Mouse Gun" could be a pocket derringer you could very easily c...read more

I discovered this guns long forgotten resting place in the bowels of my shop. The customer asked me to throw it away once I told him it was a no go.

I read this on a competitors website and it really hit home, the web address is at the bottom of the page. 1. Freezing metal can't possibly change it. We hear this a lot, even from metallurgists.
