Well...what a week!! The UPS man dropped off my HSM
ammo and (finally) the Big Bear Firepower
ammo. My list of loads is ready to hit the milestone 160 mark!! I should have three more loads arriving in the coming week.
I cleaned up the Sig 2340 (as reported on last week) and was looking forward to going out with my son to have him shoot it but...those plans fell thru. Of all the Sigs, the 2340 must be one of the trickiest to disassemble and reassemble - although it's still not hard, just tougher than other Sigs!
I picked up baby (G33) from my FFL yesterday! The first thing I noticed was that you almost had to stand on the mag release to drop the magazine
My FFL was like,"Yeh, I know...hopefully it loosens up!"
Well, I didn't clean it or lube it - just took it straight to the range for some break in!! Here is my first magazine full at ten yards:
Wasn't thrilled with myself after that but it was my first magazine-full ever outta this gun...and I had just finished shooting the Canik 9 (as reported here
) which has a lot different trigger.... I'll think of more excuses!!
A little more focus produced this:
My first 50 rounds were Bitterroot Valley Ammunition - 125g - FMJ
. I had one failure to fire and had to really muscle the slide to extract the unfired round. Then I went thru a box of Load-X - 124g - JHP
. No problems with the G33 magazines but I ran a G31 mag-full through the pistol and had 5 or 6 failures to feed where the round nosedived into the mag. Racking the slide again seemed to bring the round up and into battery. So for like six shots in a row I had to rack the slide after firing. Then I ran a box of Federal - 100g - CC BallistiClean
thru and had one failure to feed. Soo...no perfect runs the first time out!! I will have to clean it up, put some marvel mystery oil on it, and take it back out with some different ammo!
Here is a pic shooting 8" round steel at about 15 yards
Here is steel at about 17 yards
And finally, two new toys on their first day out!!
