Haven't done much gun stuff lately, been too busy with the new baby to get much of anything else done. Cute little guy, 8 lbs, 20" or so.

I'm guessing that either it had a poor staking job or it wasn't properly torqued. Or both. I tightened it back down with some blue Loctite (all I had at the range), whacked it with a punch and pounded 145 rounds through it. No problems after that.
I also got to shoot a .458 SOCOM. Bad ass. I don't think I want one, I'd rather get a .45-70 guide gun. But it was pretty sweet. I probably won't turn one down if the price is right.

There are many like it. This one is mine. CMMG complete upper on clearance from Midway. 14.5 pinned/welded. Auto BCG without any hpt/mp marks, and one piece gas ring. (I forget the name, I've used them before)
420 rounds* in less than an hour. No trouble with steel tula- a first for me. The only problem I had was my replacement brasscatcher is a steaming pos and jammed it three times. Once I bent it to match the upper, it worked great. Reloads worked fine, as did .223 and 5.56.
Not too bad at the target end. I did not mess with the sights at all. Just slapped the new TRS 25 on and started banging away.
*Not a weed ref. 2X standard loadout reference. Okay, it was what I had laying around.

Mags still have to be pried out of the FNX 45 at +25 F. Guess it will be a summer toy. I have too many mags to just get rid of it. Unless I can get a G41 or M&P45 and a bunch of 14 round mags in trade.
Tula Brass 9mm is crap. (duh?) I had 4 fail to feeds in 100 rounds on my M&P9. One of the FTFs was the last round in a mag that would not load past 12 or 13 rounds. It loaded fine before and after that. And one cut the hell out of my finger while loading. Wonder if I can unload it at the next gun show. Half of me wants to sit on it, the other wants it shot or gone so I can reload the brass.
