      The slide sticks on the 22LR kit. I think I narrowed it down to the recoil spring hanging up on the spring guide. The one on the 22 kit is plastic and there's a lot of slag on it. I'm smoothing it with sandpaper now.
      Unfortunately, I have to make a trip to the range to test it again.

      #1 set up some boards in your driveway
      #2 get your loudest nail gun and loudest compressor and start slammin nails into the boards for about an hour to get the neighbors used to the noise.

      #3 fill a trash can full of sand, take the lid and cut an access hole in it.
      #4 shoot a round into the trash can preferably when the compressor is refilling itself.

      your neighbors will never know.

      So a husband is driving with his wife down the highway when a state trooper pulls them over. Trooper comes to the driver's window and asks the husband "do you know why I pulled you over?" Husband reply's "no officer, I have no idea." Trooper says, "Well I clocked you doing 90 miles per hour." "That's impossible, I set the cruise control at 55 as soon as I got on the highway." The wife chimes in from the passenger seat "You always drive at least 90!" Husband turns to his wife and starts cursing at her to shut up and that she is not helping. Trooper says "I also noticed you weren't wearing your seat belt." "Officer, I took it off when I saw you walking up to the car." Wife "You NEVER wear your seat belt. You think it's stupid." Husband laces into his wife again. Trooper leans past the husband and asks the wife "does he always talk to you like this?" Wife "why no officer, only when he has been drinking."

      A year after his divorce, the man is again pulled over for doing 90. This officer is in a playing mood, and makes the following offer: "Son, I've heard every excuse for speeding. If you can make an excuse I've never heard, I'll let you go". The man ponders for a moment, and finally says: "Officer, about a year ago, my wife left me for a policeman". The officer asks: "So?"
      "Well," the man retorts, "I thought it was you trying to bring her back to me". The officer says: "Have a nice day. Drive Carefully".
      Work: it works, ibtches.

      I just don't changed my avatar. I thought I'd warn everybody, so they don't get freaked out.
      I'm also having a really hard time tuning the A/F ratio on my car. With a multimeter plugged in, I adjust the C/O screw and nothing happens to the duty % anymore

      Hei Jim, I told Rob about your Sig problem. He suggested that you may need a stronger spring because of the pulse. Also try a high velocity ammo to see if that makes a difference.
      Enjoy your time at the range...it's been WAAAY too long since I've gone shooting.

      A guy is walking down the street on the outside of a tall wall. He can hear someone on the other side saying "14, 14, 14, 14..." He is wondering what is on the other side and keeps hearing the "14." He thinks to himself that maybe it's a mental institution and still hears the "14, 14." As we walks along he see a small hole in the wall and decides to take a peek. All of a sudden a finger pokes him and the eye and from the other side he hears "15, 15, 15."

      Please tell him 'thanks' for me. There is a guy that makes stainless slides to go with the 22 kit, as well as better recoil springs. I'll probably pick those up but I'm pretty sure the spring catching on the pin was the main problem. I am using high velocity ammo, too. I'm told I have to in order to get the slide to cycle on a semi-auto. Personally, I like using the 9mm slide better but ammo is too rare/pricey these days!
      I just don't have time to get to the range.

      Anyone else notice how odd it is that this went from guns to bedtime stories? Off topic must still be ON topic on the Scirocco forum after all!!!
      CAUTION!!! ON TOPIC content in the following link:

      And this thread needs MOAR CATS.
