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.”

Does anyone know if anyone makes a quality CC holster for the briefly produced S&W Chief's Special semi-auto pistols (the last metal S&W's, I think)? I love my CS45, but I have to carry it bare at the small of my back, inside my pants.

I believe that Crossbreed Holsters can make a holster for any model firearm that you specify. I purchased one a couple of years ago for my S&W BG38, and it is a fine combination of kydex and leather. Beyond that, depending on where you reside, you should be able to take your CS45 to any gun show and try some of the holsters that you will find there. Failing that, try looking at the websites of the more common holster makers, and you may be able to find something. Galco, Bianchi, Crossbreed, Safariland, Don Hume, Blackhawk!.....are some of the holster makers that come to mind.

Thanks for the suggestions. I have contacted most of the mfgs. you mention and they don't seem to list models for the CS S&W's. The CS's seem to have not been a very popular item. It is heavy compared to the newer polymer frame compacts, but I still like an all metal handgun and have been very pleased with mine. in re: the comment from Lisa. I don't speake Portuguese or Spanish very well. I can read a little, but her suggested web sites don't seem to have any relation to my inquiry. Again thanks for the suggestions. It seems like a trip to a gun show may be my best bet. Mello69
