    I just went to lube up my gun to do a bit of practice and found I have another broken part that cannot be remedied prior to the shoot.

    I might have to withdraw now because I don't have a gun that fucking works. Again.
    The piece that looks like a washer is supposed to be one piece with the spring cap. Gun will not assemble or function with it in that condition.
    Just remembered my old man has a lathe.
    I will have a go at making one.

    Nice socks! Pity I couldn't say the same about the pistol :-(

    I'm taking 300rounds 9mm for you just in case.

    They're awesome socks. Warm as.

    Apreciate it mate. I was going to make one but I need a mill bit to do so because of the odd size hole and haven't got one.

    I was promised a part by tomorrow. If not, another spare will be at the shoot if I need it.

    buy a glock instead of a fancy-pant custom pistol :p

    if you coming up via Welly, bring the part you made up and I can provide some bush-milling services :D

    From your past experiences I'm still bringing the ammo :) Someone else is bringing the Glock so that will keep [MENTION=826]ebf[/MENTION] happy

    Your probably right. But when this gun is going it runs flawlessly. Someone with half a brain would do well with it. [emoji16]

    Parts are being rushed and are free of charge as they think they should have picked up that it might have been damaged when the barrel broke.
    Happy with that service.

    That's also the trouble. I can't complain much about the service I have received over this ordeal but still do not think I should be paying for the new barrel. I have been told by the fella I bought it off that what happened to mine is common? And their most common repair. Causes are generally a double load etc.

    Mine has never had a double load.
    Experience tells me that the rifling and other critical parts would sustain damage if reloading was the cause anyway.

    A heap of people that have been in the game for years have never heard of it happening before. So I don't know where I stand.

    Did he charge you for that? Get the fuck out of here! They dont call him don the robber for nothing :O_O:

    You should post up a pic of what the damage was, thats crazy stuff.

    The set up is coming along nicely, just hoping that we dont get the rain or else parking will get messy. Should have the finishing touches done on friday. Theres a scary swinging target. Its scary for me and i have a dot :wtfsmilie:

    Gladston isn't it. Just east of Carterton.

    No the rules are quite strict. You are allowed to bring a large quantity of home brew and scantily clad, hot cheerleaders tho. [emoji106]

    Yeah he is expecting me to pay for that.
    I will bring the barrel to show you. [emoji23]

    Yay on the swinger. I can hardly hit the ones that don't move.
    Weather forecast looks to have improved from last nite.

    Take a few of those plastic blaser washers and some twist ties as you may need to improvise some spares for his gun

    I am driving down from auckland on friday and registering before 6, I hope.

    Long way to drive for crappy weather so hope it is not too bad. Finally got some waterproof socks, sick of a weekend of wet feet.

    Thanks mate appreciate it. But I should have the bit tomorrow. Will get to shoot it as well before heading up.

    A lot of other good buggers have offered their spare guns and ammo as well.

    Apart from the broken barrel and spring cap my gun has worked perfectly for 10000 rnds. I will hopefully get that and more before I have any other issues.

    Hey [MENTION=394]R93[/MENTION], the boss got me to review the squad list last night. You've somehow ended in the ladies squad mate :eek:

    Bring gumboots, the range is a bog. Parking will be exciting...
