I haven't figured out how to put multiple images into one post yet.  Sorry about that.

Like the Colt commander, now if I could find one in Canada, it would be SWEET !

P210, it is a Nightforce optic but it's on a Remington 700 rifle.  The Commander was the daily carry for a few years.  Was/is my first 1911.

LOL, you should be able to tell by the phone that it was a few years back:

Drew, when I am finished with it, you probably won't want it.  Takes a while to shoot out a .308 barrel but I already have plans for a 6.5 barrel when I do.

Butler, the bolt handle threw me off.

Your Rem 700 is a sps model?

Got my wife a 700 VTR model when they first came out in production in 308.

Put a Steiner GS3 4-20X50 scope on it.

I had the bolt handle installed by Short Action Customs they drill out the handle, thread the hole then insert a hardened steel bolt to mount the knob to.  Really does add a lot of strength to the weak spot on Remingtons.  Yes, it is an SPS, I put it in a Bell&Carlson stock with an aluminum bedding block.  Wyatt;s bottom metal and a Timney flat shoe trigger. The base and rings are Badger with 20MOA base. 

I'm fortunate that I have 1175 yards out my back door to play in  Maybe another couple of hundred if I trimmed up some brush.

It has been a lot of fun.  Have learned a lot about reading wind and ranging.  Still learning though.  Learning a lot more about reloading as well!

 

BTY, Always wanted Steiner glass of some kind!  How do you like it?

Steiner optics are OK for the money spent, as usual you get what you pay for.

I've shot the rifle with the scope about 50 to 60 times.

It's my wife's kit so I don't play with it much.

I'm particularly fond of Swarovski optics, they are high dollar scopes & Sako TRG rifles.

Bushnell makes a AR Optics in 223 & 308 4.5-18X40 scope reasonable in price about $500 or so in my area.

It's designed for the AR-10 rifle, has mil-dot cross hairs & BDC ( Bullet Drop Compinsator) built with the scope.

The turrets are not bad at all for the price.

Have one of these scopes in 308 as a back up scope.

Bushnell ? EEEWWWWWWWeeee  well I go for Burris Nikon or Zeiss Leupold Really if I knew what I know now I would probably go Leupold or Burris  depends on the weapon.

 

I have been hearing that Burris warranty is getting piss poor if that is true there are other options they need to know they are not the only scope company as do all the others Weaver used to be phenomenal but I fell out of love with Weaver.

 

All I can say is optics have to be seen to believe just because one model is good means sh*t about another model adjustments as in elevation windage and parallax hunting is way different than other shooting as it is limited by reason to 200 yards unless your shooting hill to hill / mountain.   Most scopes and bases run out of adjustment for practical military use and others need to be more refined to achieve rock solid attachment and accuracy beyond  750 yards.

 

I have no need for past 500 yards as it takes a village to support that kind of equipment and a full bank account as well as a Sherpa to lug all your other equipment.

 

Scopes are dangerous to the uninformed and many people get ringed by the recoil crawling up on the scope more kick more eye relief 

if your shooting in an unknown rifle wear a bandanna over your eye brow ridge it's better than stitches IMO.

 

some scopes reticles are too busy too much circles bars and hash marks then there are lighted scopes and batteries on rifle has a few bells and whistles it took a bit to find all the stuff I wanted that took the same battery so I would not have to have a radio shack membership and Amazon to drop ship by a drone.  that is the only battery operated rifle I own all the rest are iron & simple optics.

Nothing to be sorry for snake.  I had been looking for a used Rock Island just to play with and learn how to smith them.  My neighbor has a gun & pawn shop, called one Sunday afternoon and told me he had found one.  It had a red cast to the exterior but the insides looked pretty good so I brought it home.  Took it apart, cleaned it and put it back together.  The gun cleaned up really well, obviously low round count just not the best taken care of.  I replaced all of the springs and put an arched mainspring housing on it.  Next was to break out my old and falling apart "HALLOCK'S .45 AUTO HANDBOOK" and tore it down again and followed through the book.

 After this trip through it, it has a 3 1/2~4 pound trigger that breaks cleanly.  It makes nice piles of expended brass 3' at my 4 o'clock. With my home rolled 250g wide meplat cast bullet @ +800 fps, will stack'em in the black at 25 yards just as long as I am willing to reload magazines.  I've only got a couple thousand rounds though it but it has had (so far) zero malfunctions. 

I have come to believe that a 1911 doesn't need bells and whistles, just someone willing to take the time and do the work to make the individual parts do what John Moses designed them to do.

I ran 1911s - specifically a Colt 1991 I'd hot rodded a bit with Wilson internals, a King's trigger, and Trijicon sights. I, too, prefer the arched mainspring housing, so I installed one of those with a lanyard staple, and a wide-spur GI hammer. It shot great; I came out first in my IDPA class first time I took it through a local match.

But then I found Sig P220s and I never looked back. :D Oh, hey, look - that one on the top is cocked & locked.

LOL@Sig220 My daughter-in-law totes a 220 in her purse, She's named it Madea.  Love my Sig's, 228 & 226, always wanted a 220 but funds and availability were never at the same time.  Yeah, I know, I could have ordered one when funds were available but with the desire for instant gratification, something else always won out.

Nice pieces Drew!

Have you ever compared thinking to walking?  Sometimes you need knee high rubber boots to wade through the mental mud and sometimes its a down hill stroll?  

"Oh, hey, look - that one on the top is cocked & locked. "

More about this, please.  I don't remember anything about Sigs without decockers.

Butler Ford - hah! I love the analogy!These says, I find thinking to be more like a down hill stroll the more coffee I have percolating in my system.

Regarding the Sig P220SAO (Single Action Only) - yes, Sig Sauer makes single action only P220s and P226s, and they are delightful. I believe they started making them in the early-to-mid-2000's. I remember reading "Guns & Ammo" or some other similar magazine when the news came out, and the P220SAO instantly shot to the top of my "must have" list. I finally found a very early German frame gun last year, and I traded a stock full-sized P320 9mm and $300 cash for it.

It shoots very well, but I'll be honest, I haven't had time to really wring out what load the gun likes best. I've had decent luck with 4.6 grains of Bullseye under a 200-grain Lyman cast SWC, but I've found Sigs REALLY like the H&G 68 bullet profile and I've run out of those. The stainless P220ST in the picture ate 'em all up! :D I either need to get a mould for the H&G 68 or buy some more; it's really a great .45ACP bullet.

The next dream gun evolution in my P220 lusting is one in 10mm. Someday....

Thank you.  While I hate the appearance of the H&G 68, I've never met a 45 that didn't love'em.

N.O.E._Bullet_Moulds_453-210-RF_(GC)_Sketch.Jpg

This is the mold that I have settled on, all of my 45's love it.  My alloy, checked and lubed weight out at about 250gr. (mine is an older mold) along with a healthy dose of 231, I haven't been able to improve on it at all.

I've been looking for one of these for over 1 1/2 years now.

The stores don't have them in stock, in my neck of the woods.

    • I appreciate the videos P210sig. I feel I need to express that we are no longer in Kansas anymore what was even 10 years ago is NOT now all of us are being survieled, the Internet was given away the SHADOW government is willing to start a civil war and kill Americans and yet the lame stream media is still got their ligs glued to their azz. It has been stated by insiders that the news can no longer be controlled by the deep state and that they are scared out of their minds that Internet news like Drudge Report  Infowars people like Roger Stone and a handful of American patriots like Navy Seals that have broken out on the Internet there are ex agents who have like a deer in headlights realize that they were manipulated and used to surrender our sovereignty to a global government, Funny thing is the U.N. thinks they are the one and they are just as clueless as everyone else, Once the deep state takes the helm this ship of fools will find that the real powers think this ship is a submarine and take her to the bottom.  War is a means to an end and the end is to depopulate the citizens (kill off Americans) breed disillusionment foster anger and futility among the population and divide and conquer using race, financial disparity, and age.  They are trying to kill us all Amrica is the ONLY country that can fight off globalism the one world order and devolving into a muslim anarchy.  The muslims think they are going to rule the U.N. thinks they got it and our deep state thinks they have it and reality is none of them do.  It seldom happens but people that wear themselves out fighting the wrong people are weakened to a point they can not fight at all and are easily taken over. Here is the problem with being a socialist Marxist Leninist Stalinist, Maoist Che' Geverra follower or an atheist or agnostic --- YOUR BLIND TO THE PROBLEM and that is there is nothing new under the sun PERIOD ! when people become arrogant and greedy the next and only step is EVIL and in order to maintain power and wealth they will lie steal and murder anyone who gets in their way and they always have toadies will to lick their shoes and one day kill them off and take the reigns of power and be as or more brutal than the b@stard or wh@re before them. Here is a news flash Venezuela is listed as 63 of the world most fragile countries LMAO there are 62 WORSE ? Guatemala is 61 Honduras 68 Nicaragua 71 Bolivia 75 ????? LOOK OUT WE America destabilized these countries interfered in their governments and now they are all leaning toward socialism or a variant if we do no wall up our border the TSUNAMI of people running from civil war and events like happening in Venezuela will blow up and we will be fighting along our southern boarder !  OUR Government has as General Westley Clark stated so eloquently that our plan under Bush was to take out & middle eastern sovereign nation states and IMPOSE democracy on a people that cannot and will not understand or accept it is against their religion history and educational system PERIOD Europe is going to find out too damn late they have allowed themselves to be invaded by a hostile force it will act as if it is divided all the while usurping the vote installing leaders under the guise that they can only control understand and create organizations to help them assimilate like the muslim brotherhood LMAO etc etc etc....... If we had 100,000 immigrants that had syphilis small pox HIV un-treatable Tuberculosis whooping cough Hantavirus  and a whole litany of others including Ebola would you and I do mean YOU let them in well if your for open boarders you have and it has killed thousands of children not to mention the gangs and child molesters and rapists murderers and thieves from every nation if they are not vetted that is what vetting is for and like Ellis Island we need to see if they are harboring a FREAKIN' disease that will kill us and our children ! If you are for overthrowing a legally elected official that demands that laws already enacted be enforced up and to the letter of the law your a anarchist traitor turncoat ignorant fool and those are the least of your problems especially if your not in office because "THEY" have an agenda to use illegals of all nationalities to vote for them and if you bother to look at how they treat US how stupid are YOU to work for them.  In Houston Texas the city is planning to CUT retirement for fire fighters police ambulance and teachers by HALF and once the retiree dies the benefits to the spouse and now that includes GLBTQ spouses will get their spousal benefit CUT HALF AGAIN ! so this is a war on those that can and do most of the heavy lifting and all the dirty work while the azzholes that polish a chair with their azz and run their mouth are cutting real heroes pay checks.  The government is now going to demand that retired military veterans take retirement or disability not both and only 5 years of health care LMAO and now there are 250 organizations that take in money for veterans because our Government lied and they will cut medicare and medicaid but they got trillions to fight a never ending war and a few want to go to war with Russia on both sides of the Isle LMAO----- and that is the only damn bipartisan vote you could get a up vote on. War and Conflict obscures focus so they can rob us blind.  It is a foregone conclusion to me that the muslims are going to wipe each other out all we are doing is making money selling weapons to all sides our leader talking trash while we buy AK's and ammo and funnel it to them under humanitarian aid all the while it is a test bed for new weapons systems and spying technology !  Does anyone really think that the same government that listened into Minister Merkles the Russian ambassador's and overheard Osama Bin Ladin phone as well as Pablo Escobar's phone did not know about OH lets say the Boston incident ? even when they were given a heads up by the Russians ? how about all the rest of this sh*t people on the WATCH list and they plan and commit acts and we do not know ? REALLY ... Well get ready for censorship as the Internet is no longer in our control get ready for people to die especially those on the right in media who have the b@lls to espose and tell the truth Rodger Stone as been poisoned unsuccessfully but more recent his vehicle was T-boned ON PURPOSE. the total rage of people against Trump and their willingness to call for social unrest resist lawful authority and even undermine the 1st amendment for their own selfish  means they have state police as body guards money that we pay them to commit treason on WE THE PEOPLE, I notice Nancy Pelosi id not like it when she was heckled and shouted down at a public meeting when any group want special privilege or refuses to work together they are nobody's friend but to themselves.  
    • listen close you'll catch about a hundred CLUES as to why the world and RECENT history as we know it is a LIE
    • Their are 2 members in my shooting club that own a Desert Eagle . One in 357 & the other in 50 A&E ( Action Express ) Ive shot them both several times. They were a blast to shoot. Really liked the 50 A&E . Not for the recoil friendly that's for sure. The owner of the 50 said to me at one time that he put 20 grains of powder into one loaded cartridge that he Hand loaded.  If you ask me 20 grains of powder, that's a Shotgun load. If I ever decided to buy a Desert Eagle, the 50 cal would be the ticket.  The 50 cal DE is nicely suited to the design of the firearm if you ask me,  the 44 & 357 magnum not so much so. I've shot all 3 calibers at one time. JMHO .
    • Watching the news (really should avoid that)  but they are using Ketamine as an antisuicide medication and the user says it keeps her from committing suicide DUH and chronic pain does not make a person suicidal ?  I have friends that have had multiple surgeries to stop chronic pain some with no success or limited success. I for one feel the AMA and the FDA use less than scientific methods and allow certain doctors much more leeway to function everything can be addictive there are people who are addicted to eating laundry soap some people cut themselves or body dismorphia. IMHO it is reasonable to suspect a person is overusing medication when request for refills mount or their blood test show higher amounts than normal so we have controls I guess using an ID to track will help. Better living through chemistry I believe in it not as abuse of a drug but use to control pain and allow people to have a life, Ketamine if it is useful use it I do not see a problem with pot for people with life threatening diseases I do think as other drugs we cannot totally trust doctors because some will prescribe without care just for the money and there need to be limitations on operating vehicles people need relief but do not need to endanger others IMHO.
