  Security and deployment assembly
The pistol may be deployed with one downward thrust on the pistol grip, compressing the recoil spring and providing clearance for removal of the action locking arm and lug.
The pistol is thus rigidly and safely held within the equally pressured pincers of the retainer arm 30 and the action locking arm 26 and lug 28 at opposite ends of the action locking assembly 16.
For pistol 78, the lock bar 71 may be positioned in the action of the weapon, between the shroud 82 and a portion 106 of the pistol adjacent the firing chamber, as shown in FIG.

 Slide-Glide Gun Grease and Firearm Lubricant
For carry or duty pistols, protection from wear is not a factor - the most important thing is that it functions with 100% reliability.
This includes the top and bottom locking lugs on the barrel, the frame and slide rails, the bushing or cone area, and especially the upper locking lugs on the inside of the slide.
I took the slide off, examined the top end, and disovered all the grease had been pushed into the tolerances of the barrel and slide.

 ONE GOOD PISTOL: Kimber MCSOCOM ICQB
It was in 1917 that the United States Marine Corps adopted the.45 ACP Model of 1911 pistol, and the Marines used the gun continuously from World War I through the Vietnam War.
Still, a pistol weapon-light mount was a requirement and, since MEU (SOC) had experienced excellent results with the Dawson Precision Rail that had been added to many of its 1911 pistols, this mount was selected for the new Kimber ICQB Pistol.
Disassembling the pistol's frame group is another matter, due to the unique method by which the ambidextrous thumb safety is held in place.

  GLOCK 20   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Pistols of the size and weight of the Javelina, Grizzly, and Omega tame the 10 easily; they have extra-heavy slides and/or re-engineered lockups to help them deal with the slide-velocity problem.
The slide and barrel of the 10mm Glock 20 are considerably heavier than the ones used on the lighter 9mm pistols.
Although the pistol we had for inspection and evaluation firing was in G&A offices for a too-brief period of time, we did manage to get to the range with the gun and a variety of factory ammunition.

 Pistol slide - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
The slide is the part of a semi-automatic pistol that moves during the operating cycle and generally houses the firing pin or striker, extractor, and serves as the bolt face.
Through the principles of recoil operation, the slide is forced back with each shot.
However, some semi-auto pistols are double action only, and are designed to omit the first step.

 FAQ on the Glock
Once the slide is locked to the rear, both visually and physically (with your little finger) inspect the chamber of the pistol to be sure that the chamber is empty.
Hold the pistol in either hand (shooting hand is easiest for me - Ed.) so that four fingers grasp the top of the slide and the thumb is curled under the backstrap of the receiver (the "curl" on the back of the grip).
Also, do not pull the trigger when the slide is on the pistol, the trigger is in its forward position, and the slide is held to the rear with the slide stop lever.

 Sand Cuts in Frame and Slide
If you are looking for a service pistol that will maintain field reliability the longest, don't be mislead by competition based pistol builders into thinking a pistol constructed with light duty competition components is going to be as long term reliable under field conditions as a professional service pistol.
When the pistol is fired or otherwise cycled, contaminants have opportunity to enter the inner workings of the pistol and grind between the inside of the slide and the barrel hood.
However, when the pistol is contaminated with sand or other hard particles which are difficult to grind up, grinding friction can increase dramatically, sometimes enough to stop the slides operation.

 92SB - Beretta-E   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Beretta 92SB pistol was fitted with a firing-pin block so that it would become impossible for the pistol to fire if dropped on a hard surface, and made the safety operable for left handed users, by duplicating it on the right side of the slide.
Beretta now had a true double-action pistol, that could be carried in a safe manner and that was very safe to handle.
With the safety on, the slide can be manipulated without the risk that touching the trigger would fire the pistol, as the safety disconnects the trigger.

 Colt .45 Automatic Pistol
Soldiers stationed in the Philippines reported that the.38 caliber pistol then in use was almost useless against the hard-charging Moros.
In order to develop a pistol with the greatest impact possible, studies were made by firing into soft wood, clay, carcasses of animals, human cadavers, and live animals.
The enduring reliability of the Browning-Colt.45 military model is reflected in the fact that about 50,000 pistols "disappeared" from the 380,000 made between April 1917 and November 1918.

 The Gun Zone -- The M9 Slide Failures   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The results of this work have shown that there are two types of slide materials currently being manufactured at Beretta, Italy; steel treated with Te (globular structure) which is accompanied by low fracture toughness and steel treated with Ca (longitudinal stringers) which is accompanied by high fracture toughness.
It should be noted that the sulphide morphology correlation has been observed for all slides examined since the inception of the investigation of the Beretta slide failures (total of 31 slides).
The last injury from a slide separating from the pistol was in 1989.

The grip shape is very comfortable, and the grip tang is of the beavertail design that protects the hand from being burned by the pistol’s slide and also distributes the force of the pistol’s recoil.
The slide stop is large enough for positive contact, but it does not interfere with fast shooting as do some of the aftermarket slide stops for the 1911 pistol.
The pistol’s slide is also serrated at the front and rear to accommodate different loading and checking techniques.

With the hammer area of the pistol held close to your ear, pull the hammer to the rear very slightly.
The firing pin lock out feature consists fo a spring loaded plunger located in the slide that prevents the firing pin from moving far enough forward to fire the cartridge unless the trigger is pulled far enough to depress the plunger.
Should the firing pin stick forward, the pistol can go full or auto or jam the round that is being fed. There is a special plunger lever that is available for use in pistols that have a trigger overtravel stop.

 Makarov IJ-70 Pistol - Synopsis
The Russian-made Baikal IJ-70 pistol is often referred to simply as the "Makarov." I call it "The gun that lost the East," since it was the service sidearm of the Soviet Union throughout the Cold War.
The new pistol was to serve as the duty sidearm of the various branches of the military, as well as the police, the KGB, and all other government agencies.
As with any blow-back action pistol, the slide return spring is pretty stiff, and it takes a fair amount of effort to retract the slide manually.

Well, as a left handed shooter, most slide releases are put in locations that are a bitch to use for me. When I'm just futzing around, I might use the release, but if I'm being somewhat serious I try to make sure I'm in the habit of doing the slingshot for speed's sake.
The best method is to reach over the slide with the entire left hand and release the slide.
The slide locks open and then when you insert a loaded or empty mag the slide drops.
