    Afterwards, eyewitnesses described the event as "Being very much like. . ."

    Just send the link to their customer service email, or any other way you can contact the company, and I’m pretty sure someone might read it

    If I feel the ground quake in the next few days, I'll know that they milled the side of your front sight...

    Truthfully, I would kind of respect the milling of the side of the sight. . .

    . . .as a field armorer's solution. . .

    . . .in an actively deployed situation. . .

    . . .to a problem that was field-induced.

    As is, it feels pretty Soviet-military.  That repair would look right at home on a Nagant revolver.

    You requests they machine the front sight?!?!?!?

    I sent pics of the groups all impacting low at 10 yards. So, they took some off the front sight to correct that. 
    We will see how it compares with my ammo.

    Any idea how much off the front sight they adjusted?

    So far so good 👍

    Other than comparing photos, no.

    Didn’t get to shoot it this evening. Was too busy taking some kids dove hunting. 
    But, their attention to detail and their descriptions on the work order tell me they are a solid company I can trust. 
    Now, if they can just fix their initial QC before the guns ship out. 😉

    Finally got around to shooting the gun with different ammo @ 10 yrds. 

    MUCH better than it used to be!!  Pretty much spot on for elevation but still a tad bit right. I can live with the improvement. 
    I was hoping the Gold Dots would be best. But, I have to give the edge to my XTP Handloads. Gotta do water jug tests between the two, next.

  • SpkSpk Senior Member Posts: 4,746 Senior Member
    Yup, your XTP handloads are the clear winner but any of the others would do in a pinch at 10 yards 👍

    Agreed, water jug test with Chrono next. Standing by.

    The XTP had a noticeably greater recoil. Not painful, but they felt harder than the GD. 
    The velocity comparison will be interesting.

    On a side note, I had my first handload misfire with one of my XTP loads. Pulled the trigger and nothing. Looked, and the primer was hit. Reset the cylinder and hit it again. Nothing. 
    I was kind of in a rush, so I just fired another round. Still have that one, so I want to investigate further if it was my fault, the primer, or guns fault. It was a CCI Primer.

    If I remember correctly, the CCI primers have a harder cup than other brands.

    The only misfire I've ever had that wouldn't fire on retry was a CCI primer, Blazer factory load. The other one I had was from carbon clogging the revolver throats from firing specials. Magnum didn't fully chamber, fp strike pushed the case forward, fired second strike.
