i think flawless functioning is the norm. good to hear it!!

sometimes i wish mine would screw up so i could figure out what's wrong. but i guess i'm stuck with 100% reliability.

i plan on going out monday for a little pre-season range session. it's STILL cold in pittsburgh. i need a light break-in before i get really serious about practice. 300 rounds is a light session, right? i guess my hand will tell me.

be sure to tell wulf about 40 to 9 mag mods. i've never done it but i presume you just bend the .40 mag's lips until they grip the 9mm case.

oiled the guns. used virgin M40 magazines. modified 4 new M40 to use 12 rounds of 9mm. I used 2 modified S&W Sigma 14 round mags in the M40 along with 4 other unmodified M40 10rnd mags. both guns functioned flawlessly with 150 rounds each. not a hicup from any gun or magazine. accuracy at 25 yards was good.

?? Why modify 40 mags for 9 12's ??? and how did you bend the lips?? I'm in the process of taking one of the Sigma 40 mags to 9mm......I got 17 rounds in the unmodified version......I don't think the 9mm Sigma follower will work, too skinny.....
Glad to hear the Sigma 40 mags work. Mine work very good :D

10 round 40 mags will hold 12 rounds of 9mm.

This was more useful and more comon when us poor civilians could only get 10 round mags. Or if you justy have a bunch of 10 round 40 mags.

Now just go buy 14 or 15 round M9 mags

Nice report MrApathy.

I've been stuck taking my pistol to an indoor range that is about a 25 minute trip from my house, but with the warmer weather I'll be able to go to a free Department of Natural Resources range and try my hand at 25 yards with the M40. I'm stuck studying for my final law school exam EVER and then it's just studying for the Bar Exam. I plan on doing a lot of shooting this summer to take care of the mental stress. :D Nothing more relaxing than being at the range.
