    Try possibly switching ammo types

    Always using a stool to sit on to shoot b/c with the arthritis the back won't take well to standing & shooting very long.
    Only when I'm doing some shooting with a carry gun will I stand.
    The targets will tell when I'm shooting not using a rest.

    I do constantly, but mostly to know which ammo types won't work so when I sell a gun I can give people a heads-up.
    Once I know what to stay away from, I'll use whatever is at hand unless I'm testing a gun to trim against another.
    Verdict is still out on the 1911-22 clones b/c I'm in denial & might play with the sights before cutting one.

    Range time.
    CCI Blazer 38 grain, 1235 FPS, solid lead nose
    30' today instead of 21'
    GSG/ZRT wins today.
    Have 10 rounds in the middle of something that actual shoots to POA: S/W 22A-1 Talo edition

    Note: The Colt Walther's slide release broke today??!!!
    Talk about "pot-metal." I was stunned.
    If anyone knows who I could contact to get another one free let me know
    ATI promptly sent me a barrel fixing pin for my GSG when it came up missing for free.

    I took the GSG/ZRT 1911-22 back to ZRT in Noblesville to look at the rear sights since the Allen head screws were not there.
    I wanted to adjust the windage, but there was no Allen head screws under the two holes on the rear sight to loosen so it could be pushed to the right a hair.
    I put the correct size Allen key down the holes but nothing would "catch."
    With a light, I could't see anything but a flat surface meaning whoever put in the upgraded rear sights didn't match up the surface to receive adjustment screws.
    Humorously enough, the two Allen head screws were simply missing.

    In a matter of a minute, Zack put the correct Allen head screws in there for me.
    Someone either forgot to put them back in after an adjustment, or they both had fallen out over time?
    When I had contacted Zack about how to adjust the windage, he told me to simply loosen up the Allen heads with a hex.
    But, I didn't see anything but a flat surface beneath the two holes on top of the rear sights.
    I need better eyes to see down dark little cavities for minuscule holes.


    On another note, with the Colt/Walther 1911-22: the slide stop/release just broke in two pieces when engaging it with my thumb to load the 1st round from a fresh magazine at the range last Friday.
    Strange.
    Adds new meaning to the term, "pot metal."
    I contacted Walther & I have to mail in the broken pieces, then they'll to send another one back.

    It is interesting to me your dealings with ZRT.

    When I contacted them, they didn't seem too interested in milling my slide and adding some co-witnessing sights. He (I assume Zack) said that they would do it but were more into production machining these days.

    And here you are getting screws put in. Nice!

    Just the GSG/ZRT 1911-22 today (after shooting revolvers, that is).
    Couldn't shoot the Colt/Walther with it today (as is my custom) since the slide stop snapped in two.
    Windage was adjusted & it seemed to be a bit better today.

    I think I'd be happier just shooting at 15' with the 1911-22 clones that I've got.
    I like the feel of them in my hand and the all-metal weight, but they don't put good barrels in them for anything resembling consistency.
    It's like the Glock 44, they say it has a "match" barrel in it. Really?
    I've got some semi-autos & even revolvers with some good barrels: the G44 is very average, like the SW MP Compact and a half-dozen more I've had, but sold when I started getting some Ruger, Brownings, & more expensive S/W.
    Maybe it's just my eyes, & if it had an optic on it, I could do better.

    20 rounds on each of the head & torso.
    5 rounds on each of the small targets on the bottom.
    If this would have been free-hand, I would be happy, but alas, this was resting my hand on a bean bag.

    Hmm... maybe he has too many orders going right now. He finished cutting my Glock 19x slide for an SRO pretty quickly last year. I did all my coms via email then dropped it off once we got a rough quote.

    He did say he was very busy. I had to call him after I got no response via voice mail or email.

    Finally got a scope today.
    BGDave, that I bought a Leupold 2x20 from had a Tasco Pro-Class 4x30 that he didn't need.
    I was afraid it wouldn't have enough eye relief, but it did.
    Can't wait to see how it tightens up my groups.

    Nice looking Smith & Wesson. The color of the scope compliments the pistol nicely. With a steady solid rest where there is no perceptible movement of the reticle on target you should be able to get some really good groups with a 4X.
