    I honestly thought mine was about 1/4 to 1/3 of what I see in your photo, roughly, with a round in the chamber. But when I took a photo, it looks pretty darn flush. Is that photo with an empty...

    I'll definitely be keeping my eye open for the stainless gun in .44 Mag. While I have enjoyed shooting the 50AE model, there's no way in the world I could afford to shoot 50AE even if I handloaded...

    I got mine at GunsAmerica.com for, I think, about $425. It was a factory refurb in very good condition with some very minor corrosion under the grips. Polished all that out with little effort, put...

    I think you'll find that shooting a DA gun such as the K40 will take a while to really get used to, but you will learn it and your accuracy will tighten right up. I was very surprised to find I can...

    I don't have both, only the K40. I can only hope the extra weight of the steel frame is noticeable--that's why I bought it. It's a tiny little gun, IMO, and I prefer having the extra mass. I don't...

    Just as an update, I finally pulled the loads I had marked as 11.4gr and 11.2gr Longshot under the 135 gr XTPs. The concern was that these were potentially 0.6gr heavier than I'd marked them due to...

    Congratulations--looks like you got the Trijicons, too, which I love. Yes, there's no need to bypass 40SW--it's a pretty good cartridge IMO, and in the K40, it's an excellent match for the handful of...

    Congratulations!! You're probably spot-on regarding its history, and in fact a couple of boxes could very well be an overstatement. MY OPINION is that, unless you've already spent considerable time...
