  1. Firing Pin for Springfield/Stevens Model 52

    Rimfire Central
    I recently had a Springfield/Stevens Model 52 made in 1914 given to me by my grandpa. He told me that he didn't know what was wrong with it and that it wouldn't fire and that I could have it if I wanted to fix it. After taking a look at it, I immediately noticed that the firing pin has been...
  2. What is the a decent first 45 acp pistol to buy?

    Semi-Auto Handgun Discussion
    I am starting my research for buying a .45 acp double stack handgun. I don't necessarily need it to conceal. I already have a conceal carry. I am looking for something reliable, good build around $500-$600. I thought about 1911 and honestly, if I am going to buy one itll be a higher end model...

    Rifle Discussion

But there's a third hole that's used for something. I was wondering what that might be. I inherited this rifle from my grandpa...
  6. XDM 9mm 3.8 vs 4.5 accuracy

    General Gun Discussion
    I have read a lot of posts that the XDM 3.8 compared to the 4.5 at shorter ranges (<25 yards) the barrel length does not affect accuracy. Does anyone have any range experience to confirm or deny what I have read elsewhere. I bought the 3.8 because it was a Davidson which gives me a great...
