From Around The Web

Lucky Gunner's Guide to the S&W .38/.357 Mag revolver. A pretty cool resource to wade through their myriad of different frames, configurations and model numbers. 

Two Commandments by Kenny of Knuckle Draggin My Life Away. Beware. Clicking through the link is fine for anybody. Wading into the general blog will expose you to foul language and pictures of beautiful women in bikini's, thong underwear, etc. Depending on your perspective that might be awesome or offensive.

Captains Journal talks M4 reliability. Looks like we are going back to industry, which makes some great rifles, for suggestions on improving the standard service rifle.

Mike Pattone and Defense Review talk The Big M4 Fouling Myth. They make a compelling case to swap out a few simple, user level, parts to improve the rifles ability to feed and cycle. Specifically a heavier buffer/ buffer spring and an upgraded extractor spring with crane 0 ring. Good to think about and not too expensive to impliment. Keep existing parts as spares.

i've never had the problems with any of my guns nor any of the several tens of thousands that i worked on. we had a spate of crushed extractor springs b4 they put the rubber buffer in them. other than that its been operator head space issues and worn out parts. the rock rivers we have eat gas rings for some reason yet unknown. i still ordered the h2 buffer/spring and o-ring to test in my go-to car15. it kicks a lot harder than my long guns so it will be interesting to see if it eases that any. i don't care for free float guards myself. good ones are heavy, and not needed if you avoid the habit of leaning on your weapon. jm2c.

I've been teaching the Armor part of our AR15 class for a while now and it amazes me to see the number of people who will not spend an additional few bucks on springs and spares for a $3k+ rifle. All my AR pattern carbines have heavy buffers(9mm), M16 carriers, and wolff heavy buffer and extractor springs. My failures have become few and far between. I can shoot 2k+ rounds between cleanings even with M855 radway crap.

My next upgrade will be outfitting my SBR with a Gemtech adjustable bolt carrier. These vent extra gas out through the ejection port.

Wirecutter, No problem. I own Glock(s) for fighting but those old wheel guns are for fun. Not that they can't fill a defensive role but to me that is secondary to recreational use and the pure joy of owning an old school piece of American craftsmanship.
