If you've seen the micro Browning 1919, then you knew there was an M2 version in 22 Magnum with an interchangeable barrel for 17 HMR. When making this video the M2 blew up in the shooters face a couple of times due to a broken part that keeps the gun from firing out of battery. It was not until we disassembled the rifle that we found the problem. However, we go over the particulars of this really interesting gun. Now I just need a roll bar mount for my Jeep Wrangler :)

As a hobbyist, I love doing little projects. Give me some parts for an AR15 and I am extra excited. At the 2013 Texas Multigun Championships I met Will of www.WhiskeyArms.com and learned about his 80% lowers for sale. Soon after the match I dropped by his shop to see for myself. An 80 percent lower is basically an AR15 lower that is only 80% complete in the definition of the ATF. So it can be shipped directly to your house without any FFL forms involved. The cool thing about these lowers is that WhiskeyArms ships them with all the tooling and jigs needed for you to complete the gun with pretty much standard power tools. Granted, in the video to follow, I used a real mill to complete mine. But judge for yourself if this project is for you... Now all I need is to pick a color to finish mine.

Removing the magazine safety in your GSG or Sig Sauer 1911 22LR pistol is one of the most easiest modification that you can do to your gun. In this video I will show you to the how to steps to accomplish this. Additionally I'll show you have to replace the factory curved main spring housing to an aftermarket flat one. This is also a very simple task and with a little patience you can accomplish it in no time. This video will pertain to all 1911's. So even if you do not own one of these fantastic 22 pistols, this video can help you modify your full power 1911.
I this video I do all my modifications on my second GSG pistol where I am in the process of converting the factory weapon into an IPSC Open gun. Any gun that is chambered for the 22 caliber long rifle round and is a close replica of your main center-fire gun is an inexpensive way to train.
This gun will do double duty since I plan to make my modifications based on smaller hands so that my son can start shooting Steel Challenge Competitions with me. However, It's gonna be cool anyway!
Be sure and pick your magazine upgrade kit for the GSG and Sig Sauer 1911 22LR pistol. With this magazine modification, you can get 15 rounds in the magazine and 1 in the chamber for a total of 16 rounds of ammunition in the gun!
