Its BAAAAAAK!Mark has my TN 9mm barrel in hand. He is going to polish the ramp for me. He said that it is thick enough to do an integral 3-lug, so we'll see what happens. I'll report back when he gets it done.
Took the gun out today to test the barrel. Here are the results:
Mag 1: 30 rounds of WWB - 1 failure, 6th round from the bottom - case edge was crushed on one side like before, round was stuck in the chamber, no primer hit. Had to pop it out with a cleaning rod. I need to check the chamber for scratches.
Mag 2: 30 rounds WWB - no failures
Mag 3 (with Raptor): 30 rounds Special K subsonic - no failures
Mag 4 (with Raptor): 30 rounds Special K subsonic - no failures
Mag 5 (with Raptor): 30 rounds Hornady XTP JHP subsonic - no failures
So, 150 rounds and one failure, much better results than with the original, unaltered barrel. But the fact that the failed round was stuck in the chamber bothers me. Whatever the edge caught on wasn't enough to keep it from feeding in part-way, which jammed it up good. I guess I'll have to run a few more mags through it before I consider it reliable enough to zombie hunt with
awesome, thankshttp://www.brasscatchers.com/ Designed to fit the HK 45 USC barrel. The top notch 9mm is less than .010 different than the HK 45 barrel. Fits like a freaking glove. Put a thin coat of oil on the barrel first.
I also have a 9mm UMP clone and I have the TN barrel shroud on it right now. I actually don't like it too much because I feel like it's too loose on the barrel. I feel like if I bump it against something, it slide off just a bit and I find myself constantly checking it to make sure it's seated down all the time.http://www.brasscatchers.com/ Designed to fit the HK 45 USC barrel.
