Does anyone have any experience (good or bad) with Triple K magazine's?
I have not bought one but I would like to hear some info on them as well. And, Who in the hell names something Triple K?
I've bought two of their mags for my Clark 1911A1 .38 Special conversion. The price is substantially below what I would have paid for an original Colt mag and they work. I did have one that had a problem, but I sent it back and they replaced it no charge. The .38 Special mag is engineered a little differently than a std 1911 mag but they seem to have figured it out.
I also had a couple of their mags for the High Standard military grip series of pistols. Again, they worked and the price was right.
Their name is based on the last name of the founders of the company.
A German turbocharger manufacturer. No seriously.
38 Special?? You mean 38 Super??
No, .38 Special. You can check them out at www.clarkcustomguns.com. Colt also made a Gold Cup in .38 Special. It's the pistol I used to shoot the target attached to my ID on this forum.
Cool! Ive never seen that conversion. What is the advantage to that over 38 Super??
For Bullseye matches it allows you to shoot full wadcutters rather than semi-wadcutters or round nose bullets. In fact, the mag only allows you to shoot full wadcutters. Anything longer won't fit. The mag only hold 5 rounds. The .38 Special is one of the most inherently accurate cartridges out there. I've shot lots of "cleans" at 25 yards with my Clark. The only disadvantage is when it's windy during the 50 yard slow fire stage. Mine, in a Ransom rest, will shoot inch and half groups at 50 yards. S&W used to chamber their Model 52 in .38 Special as well. Guys pay a premium for them on GunBroker, when they can find one.
I still shoot the std Bullseye powder load of 2.7 grains with either a Hornady 148 grain HBWC or Remington HBWC. Seems to work for me. Of course, it requires a 7 pound recoil spring rather than the factory std 16 pound spring for a .45 ACP pistol.
Bullseye Shooter, Thanks for the feedback.
O okay then, it makes a little more sense now.
That is cool and all but I couldn't find it on their web site. Nice target to BTW. One other thing. And I'm not poking fun. Why is the wad cutter a good target load but the round nosed FMJ's aren't? I would think the wad cutters should fly all over the place because of being flat and catching air. I know wad cutters are accurate but it's just weird to me.
