Re: What should be in the box - Odessa 9

A somewhat similar situation occurred some years ago to a friend in the South. When asked how long was the can 'incarcerated' and with whom it turned out that someone at the dealers had 'misplaced' the missing pieces. When confronted happily they were found posts haste. :) Just speculating. William ...

Re: AOC's New Code_Name: wAckOC

Poikilotrm, like you I have sadly met such cored folks. Recently it has been discovered that haters have a missing 'empathy' gene. I saw it growing up in Southie in the 40s with the likes of Jimmy and his crew. I cringed even as a child at the hurling of anti-Semitism of the kids who had to learn th...

SilencerCo Switchback 22 suppressor

Re: SWR Shadow 9 needs new spring.

You can measure the spring's coil thickness and also the diameter ( and if you are so inclined measuring the spring-K by putting a one pound weight on it and noting delta of compression in inches ) then search industrial spring catalog's listings. Highly unlikely that SWR rolled their own springs .....
