Since work prevented me from continuing the function test of my project last Friday, I spent the weekend practicing strobist-style photography with my Canon Rebel, XSI in preparation for an upcoming business trip to Montana.
While it's somewhat common for semi-automatics to behave finicky when hollow points are involved; in my nearly 40 years of shooting, I've never experienced such behavior with full-metal-jacket ammunition—that is until the other day.
It appears I'm going to need to postpone accuracy testing of my U.N.C.L.E. carbine (i.e., "The Acid Test Affair") due to unresolved technical problems: Unfortunately, it's exhibiting some failure to feed issues.
Friend and fellow U.N.C.L.E. fan John Rhoda recently asked me whether I'd given any thought to the possibility of registering the dummy suppressor Joe made in order to have it converted into an actual functioning one.
Despite the second trip back to Joe, the stock came back just the way I wanted. The wedge fit solid in the dovetail and the ball detent snapped positive in the both cutouts to lock it in an extended position.
