Re: Integral P38/P1 for best performance : length ratio?

I found this P38 integral: http://www.waltherforums.com/forum/classics/12717-new-projekt-p38-sd.html It doesn't appear to have a Nielsen / inertial decoupling device and it sure doesn't look to be terribly light weight! The museum piece and the figures of the pistol below the German text appear to b...

Re: Integral P38/P1 for best performance : length ratio?

Is short your highest priority? Short generally != quiet. Well...short is relative. ;) Short is not the highest priority, but I'm willing to dedicate a suppressor to single application use (integral) to gain short(er), if necessary. It doesn't have to be a 9mm, but going much smaller isn't terribly...

Integral P38/P1 for best performance : length ratio?

I'll be using a Form 1. I'd like to reduce handgun length as much as possible in a 9mm or larger caliber. From my review of existing designs, it appears that a ported barrel with an integral is the way to do this. I've searched high and low on this forum and the P38 forum and I can't find a definiti...

Re: Metal mag mods for longer COAL / bullet seating?

Thanks, Todd.

I'll probably be most interested in the 110 gr TTSX and V-Match for supersonic and the 247 gr NOE for sub. I guess seating these bullets deeply enough to avoid the problem is no problem, given bullet length vs. powder volume requirements.

Metal mag mods for longer COAL / bullet seating?

I remember reading a few forum threads about cutting back the mag side ribs in plastic mags, but it looks like it would be a simple matter to "adjust" them back in metal mags too. Then the bullet could be seated longer to put the bullet shank up against the ribs without cocking the cartridge and loa...

Re: Lee Dies Shipped!!!!

My dipper has a hole in the bottom, not good for anything but to look at and wonder what they were thinking. :wink: I phoned Lee Precision for some parts so I asked them about the hole in my 300 Blackout die set dipper. The nice lady said the hole is there because they can't recommend a powder char...

Re: Cleanest burning powder for SubSonic?

Seems like I'm seeing many of the same powders that work in the Beowulf here. How about another 'wulf staple--Lil'Gun?

Re: 300 blackout barrels manufactures and questions

I just spoke to Aaron at Delta Company Arms today. I'm in the queue for a 9" 300 Blackout barrel for an Olympic OA93 pistol conversion. I can't wait! To get the most out of it I'll have to wait anyway, because I'm also springing the bucks for a Form 1 to build a suppressor too.
