I managed to get some pistol shooting in with a Beretta 92FS and Sig P229 (we won't get into that, man I sucked with those but it's only the 2nd time this year I've shot pistols, damn ammo crunch)

I did get a 100 rounds through my "Howachestor"


This is the one I was having some mag issues with a couple weeks ago. I figured better check it with one of my normal shooting mags


1st 50 rounds on the left 50 yards, all benched to test the mag. I also changed the front sight on this in the spring and needed to double check zero. The 1st 50 rounds it's hitting low when I center the red circle in the front sight, I try covering the whole of the red and that did the trick.

I might have to file it down a tad. I'm waiting on that though, I might rig my Ulitimk rail back on this and mount another red dot on it like I had last summer.

The good news, this thing ran like a scared jackrabbit Big smile

Anyone else get any trigger time on their Carbines

Let’s just say I wouldn’t want to be on the receiving end, make for a bad day.

Nice Shooting!

Danke. I need to get that thing to the 100 yard lanes where I shoot and check zero there. Problem is they changed the target setup and you can't mount normal man sized targets anymore.

That and I'm getting lazy in my old age Big smile

Good shooting! I'm planning to put in some range time tomorrow with the Winchester and NPM.

Got to send a few downrange today! 100 rounds of PSD84 surplus. I brought along a late Winchester and an NPM. Well, I got going with the Winchester and was having fun, never did get the NPM out of the case... Maybe should have brought more ammo. The sticky targets were at 50 or so yards, and then I have some steel plates out at ~130 that are fun to plink at. All from the bench. I stuck a new target a couple times so here's a picture from the front and back. Beautiful day out but i'm looking forward to the leaves dropping in fall so there's better light where the targets are, it's all shaded in the summer.

Nice shooting. I learned along time ago figure at least 100 rounds per Carbine when I shoot mine Big smile

Ok, got another weekend at the range (it'll be my last one for a few weeks Cry )

Another 100 rounds through the Howachester


50 per target 50 yards, last 15 each freehand sitting. Gun ran great, I even made the mistake of thinking how boring this one was.

I should have stuck with boring


My 1966 Plainfield. I wanted to check the KCI mag's I've been messing with


100 rounds 50 yards benched. 1st 30 rounds was ugly, 3 FTE's and the mag fell out once.

I changed mag's and used my "shooter" KCI/Fulton Armory marked mag the next 70 rounds testing it. No issues. The only thing I can think of is the tabs on the 1st mag weren't seating right. 

I did notice when I got home some play on the 1st mag in another Carbine I checked it on. I'll mark and test it another carbine next chance I get.

I also might need to change the mag catch spring on this. It is original and might be worn or weaker than it should be

20 rounds (Korean Surplus) today through one of my carbines at the 25 yard Carbine target that is pictured in TM 9-1276 page 53. From 25 yards.

Tested out some mags and surplus Korean ammo at 25 yards on the range at the back of the property. One round had a good primer strike and did not fire in the Plainfield. One failure to feed in both rifles with the 15 round magazines. Probably shot 50 rounds each.

Nice looking Carbines. Good to see another Plainfield owner here Big smile
