    Playing with my New TOYS!!! and testing some old ones...

    got a new draco shot about 60 rounds,,, Wow!
    a little trouble getting it started, two tries,, but then, the FUN!!
    my friend shot it and i watched, about one foot out, a two foot bloom of fire..

    the CZ-52 ran without a hitch, worked perfect,
    three mags without a hickup, nice easy shooting, snappy recoil, fun.

    yugo M-57 perfect as the other, no problems, perfect performance,
    two mags though it no problems, easy shooting, snappy recoil.

    CZ-82, really like this gun a lot, three twelve round mags, DA/SA trigger is just fine,
    no hickups, easy recoil, ambi controls, whats not to like?

    P-38, still some stove piping out if one of the mags, made some lip adjustments.

    grendel P-12, been repaired, shot fine, but trigger had some problems resetting,
    did some oiling and testing when i got home, we'll see next time.

    Raven 25, rebuilt slide, shot just fine, but somehow would apply the safety on its own,
    been filing and adjusting the tension to stop that from happening, we'll see.

    FNP-45, nothing to report, it never fails to make me smile!!

    Tanfoglio GT-380, repaired, works perfectly, nothing to report, smiles...

    TEC-22, repaired, fired every time, but its having trouble ejecting, the shells are
    hanging up, laying inside the action, going to try a softer recoil spring setup, we'll see...

    Star modelo super A, no problems at all, eight mags, all feed perfectly, but
    i did get my traditional hammer bite, just a pinch not bloody!

    my other star, it has a crushed hammer spring, i tried stretching it, but it didnt help,
    got to get some new springs from the web, it didnt work good,
    now i feel sad...

    If you can't find the spring through Wolff or similar, go direct to IPAR Guns - they bought all of the machinery, parts and specs from Star and are still in business today.

    Is that rust on the Draco or just brown grease?

    For some reason the Soviets liked rust. Even found it on their high-performance aircraft.

    Oh, I do not envy the cleaning party that you will have to partake in now! lol.

    Nice looking Draco too. Glad you have the good one, not the new mini-nub.

    Nice :

    What is that uglee thing on your waist with the flap? Love the machine gun looking one - pretty small. What does it shoot? NATO rounds?

    I just went to Mary's Pistols and put some money down on a Draco pistol for myself. Can't wait to have some fun with that thing!

    I bought a Grendel P12 sometime after they first came out (I think I got mine in 1991). I was a fun little gun, but it kicked like a mule, considering it was a .380 auto.

    I remember that it actually had more perceived recoil than my Colt Delta Elite 10mm, firing Federal HydraShoks out of both, which was a real surprise.

    It was small, ugly, and kicked hard, but it was a reliable pistol, and relatively accurate for what it was.

    I sold it about 10 years ago, and have been regretting it ever since...

    However, I recently found a spare mag for it, and I think I have a factory original box as well (Pretty sure it has the original manual too!) that I might be convinced to part with for the right price (or trade) if you are interested.
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."
