Hah, sorry guys, it was not my intention to mislead. This is a picture that i believe David posted at some point. I should have been more clear.

Here is another good pic. BTW if you have not checked out the CGW facebook page, there is some crazy stuff on there lately. It is the only reason i ever go on facebook.

Not my hammers:)

CZ85, 85B, & 85 Combat / Re: Anyone know date of manufacture of first CA-85 Combats?

Edited my post above.  Mine is 5 digits with the first two being zeros.  Sorry about that! 
Paying $400 on GB without hands-on is more than I'd want to commit. Just a fun project. Looking locally and going to get to a few gun shows soon to see what's out there needing some care.

The pic hosting site is no longer accepting new pic uploads and will probably go away, so I've opened an imgur account and will be using that Pic Host site from here on out and I recommend it to anyone.

The issue sounds like a chemical reaction issue rather than one based on a coating rubbing off from the bullets. ??

Alright, I just slugged the barrel and with my incredibly cheap but surprisingly accurate calipers my groove diameter is measuring about .402-.403! 

Were these digital calipers ?


Not sure what you mean by chemical reaction? If it was what would be reacting?

I'm definitely not seeing any copper fouling or any plating or jacket material.   If it's there it comes off with the initial patches.

No I use an old set of no name dial calipers that I've had for 20 years.  Unfortunately last year i dropped them and chipped one of the id measurement points.  I've been looking at replacements but haven't pulled the trigger yet.

So I brought home my micrometer set and the average slug diameter is 0.4018 inch.

That is well above spec.   I'll slug it a couple more times just because but I think this is my problem?

That's the way I carry.

P01 has 17 rounds in it with a 19 round back up.

P07 has 13 rounds in it with a 17 round back up (.40 S&W DUTY P07).

I figure, if things go south so bad that I empty my handgun I'm really not going to have time to worry about what my handgun looks like with a gap between the grip frame and the magazine base - but I might be glad I've got those extra rounds.

And, the 19 round magazines also fit my CZ85.
CZ 2075 RAMI CLUB / Re: Tried to de-fang the recurve trigger on my RAMI

people hate on the rami trigger but i personally love it.. for double action its the best.  I didnt realize untill a few weeks ago, but i think Its this trigger that causes me to shoot the rami's double action  better than any other DA gun I have.  The curve on the bottom transfers any downward motion my finger might have (bad) into rearward motion (good). 

I was baffled for so long as to how im shooting a tiny subcompact more accurately than my full sized beretta 92..  im not 100% sure but I honestly think this weird trigger that i used to HATE is the reason for it. 

I guess one way to test this out is to find a hook trigger for my beretta and see if that helps.  do they sell anything like that?

I went by Lowes to day to pick up a couple things.  As I was walking out I saw small bottle of oil for the air powered tools.  I grabbed one for my new air nailer (putting up baseboard/quarter round, etc. in an upstairs bedroom/hallway).

Anyway I got to wondering how that stuff wold be for gun oil. 

It has to lube the piston/walls under pressure and stay on the piston/walls for a good while.  You put a couple/three drops in the inlet of the nailer every day and run it all day.  That oil has got to be good at staying where you put it and good at lubing the moving parts or the air guns would wear out prety quickly.  Anyone ever use it on a gun?

It's not cheap, almost $5 for little 3 or 4 oz. bottle.  Just curious.
