What are your issues?
BOUGHT IT! It had a dl prefix and looks like it was barely used. Will range fire it tomorrow. Buying a golf glove first. It's quite similar to my mpa .380 with the grooved sight. No box or extra mag. But at 325.00 I can't complain. I always wanted this gun
Congrats, Sailor.! You did good.
Do you know how to field strip it..? It's a very simple process.
If I didn't have a PM40, the 45BU would be my BUG. I regret parting with my IAI 380BU. Heck I regret parting with any gun.
Field stripping should be done before skinnydipping.
Yes saw video on you tube for field stripping it. it's quite easy. Will let every one know how it goes.will shoot Rem. 230 gr full metal and rem. 185 gr golden sabers. Asked for cordon power ball when Ibought the gun they gave me corbon 230gr+p jhp will this be ok to use? Not a fan of +p ammo in something this small.didn't notice till I got home.
Fire as much 230 ball as you can. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised on the Lack of recoil.
Will not get to the range until this afternoon if it does not rain. The boss has my chores lined up for me. Just got done cutting the grass and cooling down. Will post results this evening.
Just got back from the range. 50 rounds remington 230 ball,12rounds Remington golden sabers 185 jhp, 12rounds corbon + p 230 jhp all fired and ejected perfectly. Recoil not excessive nice grouping slow and rapid fire. Only fault I caught four ejected casings on top of my head. My new carry piece for sure. I'm beginning to think that the only people voicing their opinions are the people that have the firing pin safety block. Hey Los might be time for an amt backup site at mouse guns you' make a great moderator. Will keep you posted of future firings.
Fantastic ,..and Congrats!
I'm really glad to hear that you had a great time at the Range with your BU45. It's an incredibly tiny 45 pistol, for sure.
Post a few photos of it when you get a chance.
Will post in a few days. My I pad doesn't have a camera and my wife's new Mac notebook is not compatible with our camera. I found this out after taking some pics.
Mine is from the days when they marked the stupid "caution" notice on the slide. Half of the slide is covered with text. But it goes bang every time I pull the trigger.
Well the DL serial #'s have the same thing patent pending and all the other good stuff written . I kind of like it. Will post pics after the holiday. Taking extended memorial day weekend (sailing on the chesapeake) the gun will have to stay home. Md. Not gun friendly. Sure hope federal bill hb 822 passes soon so our permits will be like our drivers license good in any state that issues permits.
Just received a near new DL series backup. it is an Irwindale model that looks to have some type firing pin lock (never saw a Galena to compare). Is that an issue with this model? Is it worth eliminating this function? The firing pin stop is just loose in the slide and would be easily removed. Can I just take it out and leave it out? Do I need to remover it's counterpart next to the hammer (it would take a spacer or grinding off its tangs and leave it there)?
I now have 3 of these little guys (2 DA & 1 DL models). All have what I would call very loose slide to frame. Any know what the tolerance is. Worth trying to somehow tighten up? Other than closer than 15' or so my shots are nothing like those posted by Los.
Just wondering, what is the specific model of the one you are holding in the pic? I'm just getting into the AMT Backup's from a suggestion from one of my retired cop friends. I generally carry a Glock G27. Love it!! But he suggested the AMT Backup .45. So I'm trying to find one that is aesthetically pleasing, like the one in the pic you are holding in your hand. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
