    Beretta 92

    I just put in the D spring and the Wilson Combat short reach trigger. What a big difference and nice upgrade. I was able to do it with minimal tools and little to no gunsmith experience. Whatever you heard on YouTube is true, it does make the double action a pleasure to shoot. Single action...

    Oil filter pleats

    For those spin-on type filters there is no way for me to count the number of pleats without performing a surgery on them. Today at the parts store (Canadian Tire for readers North of the border), I was getting a filter for my gf's Mazda. I was contemplating whether to get the Quaker State...

    Oil pump effectiveness as it ages

    On the forum I see a lot of discussions or sometimes passionate debate on which oil brand to use, which viscosity, the perfect OCI, what you can deduce from a UOA, and etc. However, I can't seem to find much on what an oil pump does to engine wear or in fact a weakened oil pump. Perhaps I just...

    2008 Mazda 3 2.3L oil loss potentially resolved

    For the American BITOG'ers, my apology for not converting the units to imperial. My girlfriend drives this 2008 Mazda. I've been taking over the oil changes because the place she went is bit pricey for oil changes. The first time I did the oil change on the car was at around 145,000 KM...

    Sig P226 Legion

    I just shot the SAO version over the weekend. Prior to this I only "met" this gun on YouTube and never even hold it or dry fire it in a store as this is way outside my budget, nor have I tried a regular P226. But man, what a smooth pistol. I'm not a competition type of shooter, at least not...

    Number of round between cleaning

    Here in BITOG there are folks who like to push their OCI to the engineered limit and then some which makes me wonder... What is your highest number of rounds in between cleaning? I'm not an extended OCI kind of guy so the most I had gone in between cleaning is 600-700 rounds.

    A slide/rail wear question

    I'm pretty sure this has been discussed at length since the beginning of time. Just before I dive into the see of debate on Google I'd like your opinions on firearms maintenance. The question is, should I be worried if the finishing/coating on the slide where it meets the frame has worn to...

    Roll pin punch recommendations

    I'm planning to change the backstrap in one of my pistols which requires taking out a roll pin. Is there a particular type of punches and brand(s) that anyone can recommend? Thanks

    Liqui Moly 10W-60, 4970.97mi, 2003 BMW M3

    I filled this oil just before winter storage in October or November 2016. It had done 1250 miles just before the storage. This oil is not cheap so I decided to leave it in the car and in spring I kept using until it approaches the OCI. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div...
