    Those 8 M2A1 .50 cal GI Ammo Cans were delivered @ 1500 today.

    Hosed them down inside and out...then inspected each.

    Insides were pretty clean...just some had sand caked in the corners.

    Seals were good and lock up tight.

    Outsides showed a little storage rust on the corners and four of 'em had old red spray paint on the longest sides.

    Broke out the Olive Drab Krylon rattle can and hit them up.

    Good To Go...!!

    Gun show finds would have cost me $20 USD each.... with .30 cal a little cheaper...if and when you find 'em.

    :rolleyes:

    Just finished field stripping the 4 pistols I took to the range yesterday...out here on the sunny & breezy back deck.

    Also field stripped and cleaned all the magazines...then reloaded them for next week.

    Then cracked open a cold one...

    ... Life IS Good !!

    Just finished loading the mags and oiling up the firearms I'm taking to Range Day Thursday...

    Also pre-packed the Jeep with the ammo cans, targets, and range bag...as the cased firearms go in when I leave tomorrow morning.

    Well SG...


    The RIA 1911a1's magazines ( in order of appearance ) 16 round and 8 round are 10mm Mec Gar magazines...spec'd to the platform(s) by the manufacturer.

    https://www.mec-gar.com/


    The Colt GCNM 1911a1 magazines all have Rampant Colt .45 Auto stamped floor plates...with the 8 rounders ( the eight mags in the bottom row ) being manufactured by Check Mate ( lowercase "c" stamped on the floor plate top right corner )... ( with a lowercase "s" stamped on the floor plate bottom right corner for stainless steel ).

    ...and the 7 rounders ( the four mags at top ) being manufactured by Metalform ( lowercase "m" stamped on the floor plate top right corner ) ... ( with a lowercase "s" stamped on the floor plate bottom right corner for stainless steel ).

    Just got back in from Range Day Thursday...1100 till 1430.

    Met up with two friends, had breakfast, then opened the range. Had the place to ourselves...


    Gun cleaning will commence after dinner...

    I waited till this morning to clean the firearms from Range Day Thursday...and all twelve of the RIA 10mm magazines.

    The eight 8 round Colt GCNM mags are/were brand new...and the other four 7 rounder mags were cleaned last time out.

    I don't mind cleaning my firearms or magazines...as it gives you a chance to inspect all of the working parts of both.

    ...
    even shot and cleaned my G30SF ( EDC ) and it's six 10 round mags...for good measure.

    Fought with my old Winchester Model 12 trying to get some screws loose this AM, they are now soaking in Kroil...
    Did get a new set of grips for my 1911 and put those on.
