New PPK/S .380 Range Report
In one word, Flawless!!! I put a 95 rounds through it, 15 factory loads (PMC) and 80 reloads. Actually, I did have three reloads in succession that would not chamber all the way, but I strongly believe those were the result of a bad crimp at my hands. Other than that, flawless... no stove pipes, no fail to feeds, no fail to fire, and no fail to ejects.
I was shooting it at 25 yards and made a mess of the black. Yes, I tore up the white plenty, but I feel it is quite accurate, even at 25 yards.
It's a keeper for sure!
I believe my rear sight need adjusting as ninety five percent of my shots were to the left. Also, I noticed the red dot on the rear sight is slightly to the left of center of the loaded chamber indicator. Lining up the red dots on the rear and front sights, the muzzle is canted to the left. Can anyone advise me of which sight tool should be used in making this adjustment?
One final question on cleaning. After I got back from the range, I cleaned it using the usual equipment.... brass brush, Hoppe's Elite, toothbrush, Q-Tips, swabs. Can any one advise me on how to clean my wife's toothbrush before I return it the toothbrush holder?
As a side note, PMC uses very, very dirty powder.
