Re: Head up for anyone looking for factory loaded subsonic 9

The Speer Lawman I linked to is $5 less a box and subsonic. Your ammo is a good price but what I linked to is $23 for 100 rounds, vs $18 for 50 for the Speer. I bought a case. I'd buy the Speer, but I still have a ton of Georgia Arms "Canned Heat", purchased back when it was something like $130/100...

Not subsonic, but a pretty nice price for brass 9mm: http://highcountryammunition.com/24hr-sale-brass-9mm-luger-115gr-range-master-fmj-100-rds-ends-1-30-14/ 100 rounds 115gr FMJ for $23.50 SALE ENDS ON 30 JAN.

Re: Glock 17 without a booster.

This may not accomplish what you are looking for, but a thumb over the back plate on the slide of the Glock will not allow the slide to move and save excessive wear on the gun and can.

Re: Octane 9 Fixed Barrel Adapter Conversion

Yeah, definitely buy the fixed adapter online or just have you gun shop order it for you. As soon as you try to jerry rig something, you'll put a round through the side of the end cap and just wish you spent the $85 in the first place.

Re: ATTN dealers: Have any 9mm subsonic for sale?

I have had bad experiences with the AE 147gr flat point stuff (which I'm assuming is what you ordered) in my 9mm AR. It doesn't like feeding up the ramp.

Beware.

EDIT: Nevermind, just went to Wideners and see they have the round point AE not flat. :o

The only thing that is off is that I do not have the piston. Form 4 approval was fairly short because I cancelled another application that was ready for approval last year.

Can't Remove Octane 9 HD (CTA) Expansion Chamber

What the subject says. Whenever I push out the baffles to clean, only the 7 baffles come out. I don't think I've even seen the expansion chamber since the first time I cleaned the can.

Any ideas on how to get it out???
