Cheap price please?

Now I know I am probably asking to much but I shall ask anyway.
I own a Smith&Wesson M&P 45 (best gun ever) and I am in the market for trijicon night sights and also would like to own a rear sight pusher. I have supplied pictures of both. The problem is not that these are hard to find. The problem is that these are both about $100 items and I would like to spend $100 for both...anyone got some used, but still function, pieces they would like to get rid of for $100? If not then you're no friend of mine.

Well, we can still be friends but I won't be happy with you a week!
P.S. I don't care what color the night sights are.

no problem, I think I know where to find a pushed also.

I'll post a link if I can find it in my book marks.

Sight Pusher

Now I remember why I do not own a sight pusher... too damn much, that and ED has one in the tool box at the range I use if needed.

What I've always done is use a Brass Punch with a felt dot on the end of it to ensure it doesn't scuff up the sight. They sell the dots at the Hardware stop for putting on the bottom of things you set on Glass tables. I'll stick one on the end of the punch and tap the sight out and the new one in. When you tap the installed sight, the first time it moves, tap it back the other direction and then tap it out in the original direction. Most sights install left to right, so right to left when removing them.

I have the punches and rubber spacers to use for not scuffing and general marring of blued and colored metals. I was, however, cautioned against "tapping" Night sights becuase you run the risk of cracking the vial. I was thinking of just making a pusher out of some scrap wood and a long screw. Go GreasyPaws style on it! haha

yup

you can shatter the tritium tubes if you're not careful.

Damn it syn, I thought you already had night sights on the M&P... didn't that fucko at Gander making you wait for a year to put them on? Or I thought you atleast bought the sights?

I mean there are plenty of cars running around with twisted off wheel studs. LOL

But, I see your point, what exactly is too hard when tapping them in.

Your not going to be creaming it hard enough to harm the inserts. They get whacked around harder being slammed back and forth extracting and chambering a round than you will hit them tapping em.

I've Mempros on all of my pistols excluding the one I am building for an Open Gun which has adjustable LPA white dots front and back. Still deciding if I want to get a Firedragon compensated barrel or get the 6 inch match barrel and thread it for a screw on comp.

Larry Camp just built up a custom M&P for IPSC which turned out very sweet.

Put the trigger kit in it, Match Barrel, Extended Mag Well, extended mag release, extended slide stop. Damn fine pistol you ask me. I really liked my M&P while I had it and I would own the full size 45 happily. I ended up trading my M&P 9 five weeks after they hit the market for a pistol I had been wanting. The deal was too good to pass up so I made the trade. The MP45 is one of the few poly pistol I really like, very natural point of aim and the design really cuts back on felt recoil.

well...

There are pro and cons to both. With the screw on comp you have the option of taking it off if your doing night shooting or low light activities. But you have an extra piece getting dirty, threads to worry about and also extra weight at the tip. firedragon is a good choice for a one piece though.

I'm also thinking about taking another 75b .40 I have been offered and changing it over to SA from DA/SA then converting it to 357 Sig. Friend of mine has one of the Firedragon CZ Sig barrels he never installed sitting in his safe. I would make it for carry. Throw a P06 Slide on the frame so I could have the 4.72 barrel cut down to 3.6 so only .10 would extend past the end of the slide. Then have the full size frame with the thin Aluminum grips, run a 17 round mag in it and it will fit flush with the bottom of the full size frames grip.

I don't really like the screw on comps that much as a personal choice. Though it can be funny when they are ported directly on top and the concussion blows out the lights on the firing line. Kind of reminds me when someone would drop a tray of food in the chow hall and everyone would clap. Bang, POP and everyone cheers, ED get's pissed and I have to grab a ladder to swap the bulbs.

bbl

I have bar-sto and lone wolf bbls. I used to have a kkm conversion bbl. All work fine, but if I was going for a match bbl, I would choose bar-sto. I know they had a few month wait last time I talked to them, but that was a while back. I don't think I've ever used an efk.

Bar-Sto Precision

I'd have to get a few people together and have a run of barrels done to get one. Otherwise I would rather the Bar-Sto for sure, or look up a used one on line from an old run.

I don't remember the exact number you have to order, but Bruce Gray did a custom conversion on the Stainless 220 .45 acp to 10 mm and it was not cheap for the run of barrels they had done.

bar-sto

I just ordered mine directly from them (one bbl). This was 3-4 yrs ago. It took a few months, so maybe they added mine to a batch they were already running? Not sure, but they didn't say anything to me about minimums or batch orders.

Bar-Sto

I'll have to call and check it out. Any barrel I put in it will cost a little more than factory either way.

I also was considering buy the 6 inch factory barrel and sending it to be ported, but figured that would end up being just as much as a match barrel in the end, or close enough to it.

She got all butt hurt with me tonight over my not letting her drive me up to the store earlier. Shelby truly does get into learning, which is cool with me for sure.

I was wondering, what width sling swivels do you have on your Shotgun? The belt I was looking over and was thinking it could be turned into a very functional adjustable sling.

Good sling on the Rem

Yeah my daughter does the same, takes freaking 90 deg. corners at 30 and slows to a freaking stop to yield. Ha... really.

Your son got the lucky draw of the card then. Your good people and more likely than not a better father.

Damn, I'm wore out, spent the day setting things up and moving things out. My son left half an Accord and half a 240 in parts all over the place. I wish he was still in state because his butt would be out there getting worn out also...

Anyone need a 240 rear end with all the mounting hardware? Garret Turbo? Honda front lights? Intercooler and plumbing? How about two 240 ECU's and 1 Honda Accord ECU?

Going to have to setup a parts sale on EBay or something...
