Default 48-7 out of jail!

So - the new 48-7 made it home,and went out to the range this morning to see what it's dietary needs might be.



Firstly, the SA pull was sublime - 2.5 to 3 lbs felt (will check later with gauge) and accuracy was nice. The CCI "Chute 'Em" ammo was not as good as the Hornady V-Max, and the CCI Maxi-Mags just, well, just didn't, really - so no target for them.






The flyer on the Hornady was from the guy in the next lane popping one off when I wasn't expecting it (honestly!!), and while I would LOVE to say the centre group on the Chute'Ems was one cylinder, you have to know I'd have stopped right there....

I think the Hornadys win, but I fear I will have to go to the range repeatedly to make sure.

All targets standing, 2-handed, 10 yards, SA only.

Nice pick up! I have been tempted to buy one in the past but always had something else higher on the most wanted list. How's the DA trigger pull?

I have a 48-4 that is one of my favorite guns, though it is also my most needy gun cleaning wise. I have to clean it out at the range after a few cylinders fired as the casings will get stuck.

Yup - I found a nylon brush was just perfect - run the cylinder through every now and again and all was well.

Wife brought home some out-of-date giant Q-tips from work (not considered sterile any more, but still wrapped) so I'm going to see if those are man enough for the job next time.
