PostSubject: ANOTHER NEW TOY   January 25th 2015, 5:43 pm

This one here was another Christmas present I gave myself, but it took 6 weeks to make. It is a custom made MGM barrel 392/.400, FULL BULL SS fluted 28" long for my Encore frame, smokeless. I finally came this past Thursday and I put it together as best as I could to shoot it since a regular ML TC forearm would not fit due to the thickness of the barrel, so we worked for three hours opening the channel for the barrel to fit. The actual forearm that will go on it is being built at this time. This one uses fullform bullet ran thru the same die as my PAC 40ca. since both have the same twist rate 1/16. Took her out for the first trial run today, and she is there. Load was 59 gr. H4895, 200 SST fullform. Average speed was 2476. so more testing required to get her up to 2600 fps. This is the final target today four shot. I will promise this is my last SML I will built. Dave you are next Twisted Evil

Great shooting buddy!  When you do your next build (you & I both know you will Twisted Evil ) I'll be waiting to see if I can afford this one Smile

You are right about Dave though. I'm pretty sure his wife "wants" him to have another gun so it might as well be a SML Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Great shooting Carlos, That is a SWEET looking set up and a great shooter, 
You can send either one to my house, and I will be able to let Greg shoot it during the summer while I am staying with him and then in the fall when I'm down visiting you, then you can shoot it. because that is what I would be doing if I bought one of them, she would be putting me to the curb. cheers But I would be happy having one.

Very nice Carlos.  It looks strange to see a ramrod on one of your guns. The last one, boy that made me laugh! Razz

Yes the barrel came with a BP. It was custom made by MGM, and as ask for the ram rod to be put on it.

So MGM will make smokeless barrel and plug? Is it best to start with a .45 for a newbie?

They will make what ever you want, just don't tell them it is for smokeless. If you want one call me and I will let you know what to do, and what you need.
