I expect it's stainless, so no hardening available, unfortunately. Would be possible to do it in Titanium, or maybe a really deep Type III Hard Anodizing in Aluminum.

It attracts a magnet, which stainless does not.  It's supposedly chrome plated for surface hardness steel, which I read somewhere was one of the improvements from Gen 1

There's one way to prove or disprove the chrome plating.  Put a drop of muriatic acid on it.  It will dissolve the chrome.

The problem in Georgia is that we're getting too many damned Yankees moving in, and bringing their liberal politics with them.  As a result, the Georgia General Assembly is becoming afraid to do much in the way of pro-gun legislation; but Georgia Carry.org keeps on pressing them.

And then there's Kennesaw, GA, an Atlanta suburb and not in Harris County:
In Kennesaw, Georgia, local law says that "every head of household residing in the city limits is required to maintain a firearm."


Good thinking folks here in Georgia!

They could learn a lesson from one of our Georgia County Sheriffs.

Yes, this is a real sign.

Here's another article from a finance website.


This one does get it right about Remington being the oldest in the US.

CitiBank Credit Cards (including the Costo variant) is another one to boycott, since CitiBank is putting restrictions on companies that sell guns.

Perhaps this is a really stupid question, but what is the purpose of adding that large extension to an easily concealable pistol?

Funflyer, My Buckmark is box stock, too.  It's just too pretty out of the box to modify.

I only have CCI ammo of various loads lately; but it has shot other brands, including subsonic, just fine in the past.

The Browning Buckmark Damascus is my favorite .22.  It, too, will eat anything as long as it's .22 LR.

Not so for the Sig Mosquito I recently sold.  It was very picky about what it would shoot.  Sig recommends CCI Mini-Mag; but even that could have its problems.

thank for information ,,,,I had boots on the ground ,,, I own a shotgun for hunting I just never own a hand gun and that is why I go to the range

Sorry Johnny, but boots on the ground with a shotgun is NOT the same as boots on the ground with a hand gun.  Get some instruction, please.

     I have gotten 3 mags from Big Green, and they were all wrapped in
bubble wrap.
     All three reacted differently when I tried them in my two R51s.

More than likely factory rejects they just threw in the wrapper. If they were really new magazines, I would expect them to be in that plastic box packaging that is a PITA to get open. Bass Pro here has some available, but they are $35. Too high for my budget. Ironically, they have no more R51s though.

These last two from Remington had scratches on the tops of the followers, like they may have been used a time or three.  Maybe they were testing them to be sure they were good before sending them out?

Two "new" mags arrived from Remington today.  Each was in a small bubble wrap envelope with the number "F304502" written by hand with a magic marker on a plain white label.

Side by side comparison with the in the box mags and the two sent previously doesn't show any discernible difference between the three sets.  The follower spring in this latest pair seems to be stiffer than the last pair, but that's purely a difference felt when compressing
 the spring by hand.  When I get some time, I'll take them to the range to see if they shoot any different that the previous four.

If mine had been "proven in" tonite, it would have been called on to put 2 'possums in the bag !

Meantime I had to rely on the old Kahr PM9 in the hen house.

Guess I had better srart carrying the .22 down there.


You are always talking about those blasted coons

When did Opossums become "coons"?
