So I finally was able to order some .45 ammo directly from Sig. It's a Christmas miracle!

What kind of LCR? I've been eyeing one myself, the triggers are definitely really nice.

I have around 700 cases prepped for .300blk I just can't find any small rifle primer in my area

Just the standard LCR in .38 special. No crazy metal finishes or anything. Internal hammer, DAO. I know it’s a crowded market and we’re spoiled for choice, but I felt that the factory Hogue grip and smooth, non-stacking DAO trigger were worthwhile for the price-point. They seem incredibly user-friendly to me. I know everyone’s hand is different but I feel like they really nailed that grip shape.

Couple of my favorite rimfire pistols:
Izhmash IZH-35M and a Sig/Hammerli Trailside.

I run PowerCustom 10/22 action springs in the two IZH-35M. Replaced all the soft slotted screws with flat socket cap screws. Reworked the grips to fit my hand better. I’ve probably put a combined total of 10k rounds through both IZH-35M and I don’t think they’ve choked even once. Excellent triggers at 1.5 and 2 lbs. Can be safely dry-fired. They have downward-pivoting hammers. I use the 5rd factory mags but there is a great tutorial on rimfirecentral for modifying the less expensive S&W 22a/22s 10rd mags to fit.

I bought the Trailside new in around 2005-2006. They’re notorious for cracking their own trigger guard/slide stops if you run high-velocity rounds. At some point mine ate it’s own plastic guide-rod. That’s when I replaced the guide-rod, action-spring, and barrel-weight with Larry’sCustom parts, and the plastic grips with Rink stippled walnut. I’ve never run high-velocity rounds through mine. Cannot be safely dry-fired. Triggers are pretty mushy from the factory but can be dialed-down to be more crisp.



Couple of old centerfire pistols:
Astra 300 in .32acp and one in .380auto.
Astra 200 in .25acp and a Zehna type III, also in .25acp.

Neither of my Astra 300 are Nazi-marked. I’ve forgotten what the exact production dates were but they were likely Nazi contract guns that were later brought back by returning American GI’s. They’re direct blow-backs with internal hammers. They have external safeties that are mechanically kicked off when the slides are racked. The Astra 200 (FN 1905/Colt 1908 clone) is just a clean three-line example. The Zehna type III is a little mysterious, but what little I know was gleaned from the site, Unblinking Eye. None have import marks.

I am not a fan of the .40 either in a smaller framed pistol. It took a lot of shooting to get comfortable with my carry.
