The FN 150 is as reliable as only a Beretta 71 should be but with much better results when it comes to accuracy. I shot 50 rounds at 25 yards rapid fire with results that left me happy.
Excuse me, all.
Just trying to figure out what is going wrong with my posts of pictures.
Mother always said that there would be days like that!
The upper one:
I need some practice too.
My "GI" model PTR-91.
From 6:10 he shows you the gong target impacts from 300 yards, then goes further. At 10:47 he shows you a quick view through the very good iron sights.

Considering the amount of residue to clean inside an HK or PTR-91 after just 100 rds., the larger question should Probably be "What Did You Clean Today (or over 2-3 days)?", or "Start to clean today?"
A roller-delayed blowback is Still a blowback operation. Three angels can dance on this pin....
Also took my Czechpoint VZ-58, which has the fixed butt stock.. Mine has used approx. 2,700 rds. since it was nib (all used ammo boxes are kept and counted). Zero issues.
Here is Mr. Larry Vickers, with whom some of you are familiar. He retired from Delta Force and can probably explain a gun's liabilities or assets better than most people.

I managed to shoot my Walther Colt Gold Cup Trophy, still needs work because the hammer would fall after firing on about 50 % of the shots. I need to form the mainspring a bit to eliminate this problem.
Shot my 617 for 200 rounds. Did much better, I'm starting to get steadier and my groups are getting tighter.
One strange thing at the range, I got to a public range and can't control what's going on at the bench next to me. This elderly gentleman was shooting a .357 revolver and was scaring me half to death. Not only did he point it at me a couple of times but he kept holding the gun in the palm of his hand with his thumb and part of his palm being covered by the cylinder gap.
I called the Range Master over and he told me they told the guy a few times but he would still do it. I was waiting for him to blow off his thumb or destroy his hand but he was very lucky.
I thought he would know better. He must have been in his 80s. Glad I got out of there before he did some real damage.
Thats a good problem to have.
I made the wrong choice. The conversion has service sights and I was stupid enough to choose the P210-6 with the micro-click adjustable sights. The micro sights are great, don't get me wrong but after starting with the 210-2 with the conversion, the P210-6 sights threw me off and I readjusted POA a couple of times, which is always a very bad idea on paper.
The conversion had the rear sights drifted a little to the right and promptly that POI was to the right at 25 yards.
I shot the same gun but with the standard black polymer service grips this morning. I had drifted the rear sight over and now have the windage pretty corrected, therefore I had used a lower POA and the group was centered almost three inches low.
I didn't do all that well with it, but I'm a mediocre shot at best. I fired 35 rounds of 62gr Hornady FMJ with H335 powder.
The last 6 rounds I hit 3" steel at 200 yds 5 out of 6.
Still waiting on the can for it...
