CZ P10C

naloxone ·
I was pretty impressed with this gun, so I figured I would share some thoughts and pics. It was marketed as the next Glock 19 killer. Did it succeed? Scroll down to find out! This is what comes in the box. Pretty routine kit. It comes with the small backstrap installed. In this picture, you are looking at the medium backstrap. I paid about $400 out the door for it, which I feel is more than reasonable for what I got. You can find the 1st gen models for even less now that an update is hitting...

Glock factory zero and sight picture

Thanatos ·
Hey guys, I have 2 gnat's-ass questions about pistol sight pictures and factory zero distance. 1. At what range are factory Glock sights zeroed (assuming here that most/all standard-height aftermarket sights would follow suit if properly installed). 2. Within the sight picture at the zeroed distance, does the bullethole in the target bisect the top edge of the front sight post, or sit behind the post centered in the white dot? If the latter, at what range should I set the target for a...

Glock Operator Class -- Fox Valley Tech College, Appleton, Wis 14 & 15 March 2018

Jeff22 ·
Glock Professional introduced a new class called "Glock Operator" in April of 2017. I have gone to the Glock Instructor Workshop twice before (in 1992 with Pete Tarley and in 2006 with some guy retired from Detroit PD) and Glock Armorer classes a few times and I was interested to experience Glock's newest class that was intended for users of the Glock pistols. The class was held on the indoor range at Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton, Wisc. The Public Safety Training Center at FVTC...

Glock 46 with Rotating Locking Barrel

3ACR_Scout ·
This German publication, DWJ, (which I can't read and haven't had the chance to look at with Google Translate) contains photos of what appears to be a new 9mm Glock model, the G46, which features a rotating, locking barrel. This file is posted to an AR15.com user's Google drive, so I'm not sure how long it will be available. The G46 is on page 7 of this PDF file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9hAva_yxlzPZnh0QXNCdk5rckk/view Overall, the pistol appears to be Gen 5-ish, but with a longer...

Local Machine Shops for Pistol Work

So I wanted to get a Trijicon RMR mounted on my Glock 17... There are some amazing companies doing incredible work out there, but most of them are either out of my price range, or the lead time is measured in months it seems. So in checking around the internet I found two articles on rifleshooter.com One article was about how to machine a Glock slide for a Trijicon RMR and the other article was about how to machine cocking serrations. Well, I am not a machinist, but I do know one. So I...

Hello All, I have a 17r that has broken reset trigger spring. Any ideas of where I can get one? I'm a certified Glock armorer however my cert has expired. I don't do enough work to justify attending the all day class and parting with the $100. Ant help would be appreciated. Thanks

DIY Glock 43 Pocket Mag Pouch

Pyrotech ·
Sometime last year, there was a discussion on here about using a Tyvek mailing envelop to create a pocket magazine pouch. The idea was simple lightweight and low profile. I was looking for something that would let me slip a couple of spare mags into my back pocket and at the time I could not really find anything off the shelf that I liked. So an idea was stolen and tweaked. I did not have any Tyvek, But I did have some HEAVY mylar bags left over over from a project my company worked on along...

RFI- Glock barrel interchangeability between generations?

mog ·
I did not have much luck with Google-Fu, and most results deal with Gen 3 and Gen 4. I have a G20 that is a Gen 1 (one of the first 1000 in the US according to Glock), and I just received an Alpha Wolf 6.6" threaded barrel that is marked 'Gen 3/4', (compatibility was not listed on the website). My slide is off being milled for an RDS, so I can not function test until it returns. My 'Mark 1 Eyeball' thinks they are the same, BUT does anyone have experience with Glock (any model) Gen 1 to Gen...

Glock conversion 23>19

Viper39C ·
I have an old G23 that I barely shoot as it’s my only .40 pistol. I picked up a Lone Wolf 9mm conversion barrel a while back and my question is, what more than 9mm mags would I need to turn it into a G19-ish gun? I’d rather not buy a G19 unless it would be more reliable. Thoughts?

Are the mags affected at all when you sit on then? Also how is the comfort? I have an aversion to things in my back pockets, to include wallets.

The mags do not seem to be affected at all. The comfort level is high enough i have not noticed the maga in the back pocket. I also have not taken multiple hours long drive. If i do the mags would come out same.as my wallet. out an about town or out to dinner and movie it is more comfortable than i would have first thought

If you paid $200 to get your slide milled then you got ripped unless this kind of work has skyrocketed in the last few years. Mark Housel from L&M Precision did my slide 3yrs ago and it was perfect with no gaps anywhere as he knows what is supposed to be done with that type of sight. He ceracoated the raw steel, mounted the RMR, mounted the provided Trijicon suppressor sights, and turned the whole thing around in about 3 weeks; cost then was $140.00. The irons were dead-on and the dot...

Isn't that rotating barrel lockup similar to what Betetta uses in the PX4 Storm line? If not , ignore this as I've had a long travel day and been on my feet most of the time I wasn't in a vehicle. I'm toast.

Re: Glock 46 with Rotating Locking Barrel

Mark, someone referenced the Beretta PX4's rotating barrel on the other forum also, so I'm guessing you're correct. Another post mentioned that the G46 is being evaluated by Germany's GSG9, but I'm not sure if that was lifted out of the article or just RUMINT. I'll try to look over the article and translate some of it when I get to my home computer. Hopefully a German-speaking member will beat me to it... Dave

No, Mojo you are correct. The PX4 Storm (and the 8000 before it) has a similar rotating lugged barrel. Pretty sure the 1912 Steyr is this way as well. From what little I understand of the article, the Glock 46 exists to be a viable candidate for German Police pistol trials/selection. I'm curious to see how this one plays out in the long run

M1907 Roth Steyr 1907. Note that the way the striker works so far as being only partially cocked is very much like the other Glocks...it's almost like Glock is going back to the very first Austrian pistol with the return of the rotating barrel. I owned a cutaway M1907 - a very interesting early automatic pistol.

So back, but to late to edit, the SIG Sauer 220 or P6 (Polizeipistole 6) has only a 8 shot stack magazine, so with one round chambered and 2 extra magazines 25 shot total for the officer.

Interesting... Can't figure out what replaces the original slide stop, what is operating the firing pin safety and what the second plunger at the back of the slide is. Is a rotating barrel more accurate than the Browning tilt design? I gotta believe feeding alternatives to ball ammo may be an issue.

Re: Glock 46 with Rotating Locking Barrel

shoobe01 ·
These days, with the browning lock mature as hell, I am not sure there's any difference in things like accuracy. It could be made with a lower boreline, which is always better, and appears to be. Only other distinct advantage I recall for rotating barrels is that primary extraction involves twisting so you get a more effective breakaway force, much as it does with a rotating bolt. ETA: Is it 100g lighter than a G17-5 or am I not getting apples-to-apples weight comparison?

From the front it almost looks like a HK P7, the bore axis is noticeably lower than a G19. The Arsenal Strike One, which was is touted for it's low bore axis, is also a rotating barrel. Of course it's also known for it's reliability issues...

Some quick technical details from the article: Page 70 in the DWJ magazine = Page 7 of the linked file The G46 will be decocked by twisting the back plate (p. 70 figure 1 no. 1) Trigger and triple safety feature stay the same as „standard Glocks“ Metal surfaces are nonglare DLC (diamond like carbon) coated to make them extra smooth. Barrel and chamber are hammer forged / no feeding ramp so fully encloses cartridge if barrel is in battery and shot breaks (= no blown out magazines and split up...

Re: Glock 46 with Rotating Locking Barrel

Rotating a striker assembly again reminds me of P7. I know that removed it but still. Wish G talked about their design process a bit more. Rotating should seem to be able to be intrinsically safe for decocking. I do worry (a bit) about the ergonomics of twisting a little thing on the back of the slide. Safely. In the dark. After a UOF incident when adrenaline is up. Etc.

Why would you be decocking the gun (only required for disassembly as far as I understand) under that scenario? Wouldnt you just reholster it like any other, standard Glock? Rick

The decocking feature is only for disassembly, not like decocking a DA/SA pistol.

Ah... That helps a lot. I thought (since it's German and I only get so much of this) it was a "we need the ability to decock" generally requirement. Presumably this just eliminates all those worried about pulling the trigger to strip, though it seemed like a bonus safety check step to me.

Re: Glock 19 appendix holster

I carry the same setup appendix and I went with a Trex arms light compatible raptor holster. Opinions of the owner aside, my reasoning was that it appeared to have the smallest footprint for a holster that accepted an x300. The retention isn't great, and definitely no positive click like I get with my Raven concealment phantom light compatible. It will hold the gun and light while upside down without falling out but if you shake it around the gun starts to come lose. I previously carried my...

I appreciate your offer for the photos but it’s not necessary , I have a raptor for my G21. You are spot on about the retention, even though most or all of the light bearing holsters get there retention off the light the Raptor’s was lacking for sure.
