Converting Old Browning Model A-5s

Newer versions of this famous shotgun use roll pins instead of screws to hold certain action parts. Here’s how to convert early Auto-5s.

Glock Mods: An M1911 Man Branches Out

I’ve worked with the 1911 for many years, and sometimes that experience has been helpful with other pistols, such as the Browning Hi-Power, for example. Sometimes the differences between pistols are hard to spot, and other times we find similarities between handguns that at first seem very different. Another example: If you can work on the Savage 1910, you can work on the Astra 400, and you won’t be confused by the H&K P7M8. But the Glock? Ah, the Glock is an altogether different creature. Sometimes my 1911-based reasoning produces positive results with the Glock, and other times it does not. With the Glock so popular with law-enforcement and now proving itself in competition—winning the first top-class award at IPSC—we’re going to see more and more Glocks turned in for improvement. And at the very least, we should be familiar with the similarities and the differences between the Glock and “old Slabsides.”

SIG Sauer Introduces Second Generation P290 RS Microcompact

(GunReports.com) — SIG Sauer's next-generation P290 RS 9mm microcompact pistol includes several new features added because of consumer feedback. The next-gen P290 RS is shipping to dealers now.

The most noticeable change in the double-action-only P290 RS is a redesigned trigger that now offers restrike (RS) capability. In event of an ammo failure, the operator now has the option to press the trigger a second time, or manually cycle the slide.

“The most common thing we heard about the P290 was a request for restrike capability,” said Jeff Creamer, director of product management.

Also, a recountoured beavertail minimizes hammer-bite for shooters with larger hands.

All P290 RS pistols will ship with a 6-round magazine featuring a new finger-groove baseplate improving control. An additional flush magazine baseplate will be included, as well as an extended 8-round magazine.

Also, two control levers have been reshaped. The magazine release has been reduced and contoured to reduce any chance of an inadvertent disengagement. A new slide stop has been recontoured to enhance the comfort of shooters with larger hands.

The repeat strike capability is one that appeals to many shooters and carriers. In the off chance that a primer requires a second strike, the shooter can maximize on the limited magazine capacity of the pistol. This pistol seems to be a good candidate for a back up piece, or for use as a deep concealment weapon. I would be interested in it, but since I already have a Kahr PM-9 I use for back-up and deep concealment, which I believe is smaller in all dimensions than this pistol, I am not likely to be running to purchase it anytime soon.
