Wolf In A '27?
Posted 12 March 2005 - 03:59 PM
i know it's dirty.
it gets cleaned after every outing any way, reguardless of ammo brand name. unless i'm out with friends, i normally only put 100 or rds through it during an outing.
i'm more concerned with thoughts on extractor and firing pin issues.
i know 45auto was steel cased during the war.
should work then eh?
the stuff is just so cheap, i have to atleast give it a thought

I borke an extractor on it. Even though steel comes in various hardnesses, it is still harder than brass.
I have no plans on using it again.
Sure extractors are cheap. For Now! $10.00 ea.
But I wonder what it will cost to have a smith take a piece of steel and make one once the surplus is gone?
Just my .02

i've broke a few using WWB and A/E.

No I can't say that for certain. I base my findings on 1 event with my gun, and on the testimony of others. However similar breaks have occurred with other arms.
It would be nice if the Thompson extractor pivoted and didn't rely on spring tension.
Perhaps another case of Wolf should be tested.

One option, is to figure your cost savings over the next couple years using Wolf, compare the cost to a new extractor and a possible a bolt assembly .... then use Wold with the "extra" bolt assemblyl.
...... however, I have been using brass case ammo in mine.

Same extractor for a 28' will work in a westy 27A1 semi?

Jeeeze! Would want to be the poor guy that pulled the trigger on that one! Did the shooter get hurt? Looks almost impossible to have escaped injury. I have never seen Federal Premium do that before...heard about it happening with wolf some but not federal. That sucks!

IIRC that was caused by a squib, followed by 5 or 6 more shots?
IF that is case, that would have been just as much the shooters fault as the ammo.
never, had one(yet) but i would think that one would be able to tell between a squib and a "normal" round going off, with that said i would also think that one ahould be able to tell(feel) the following rds coming to screaming halt in the barrel.
a 230 grn rd coming to a halt like that should create some sort of felt *recoil* like forward feeling.
