I think D is a blorfingfurdler, but I can’t tell if it’s left-handed or right-handed.

Ummmm, Yup. It’s much more interesting to describe how to modify each part for max effectiveness :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I love these responses! I don’t care what you call them (I used to have them memorized in the Army), but I could field-strip a 1911 blindfolded about 30 years ago. I prefer my eyes open these days. A couple of years ago, I field-stripped a 1911 that a uncle carried all through WW II with Patton. It was made for WW I and a “real” Colt. It had two loaded mags with it. One had ammo from 1932 and the other mag’s ammo was head-stamped 1943. My cousin didn’t think it had been cleaned for maybe 50 years, so I showed him how to do it. We cleaned up that old ammo and put it away permanently. I told him NOT TO EVER SELL THIS piece of American History!!

@Dawn do you want us to just blurt it out? :laughing:

Because I can name all the parts except “D”… wait…
D is… DANGIT.
Yep, that’s it. “D” stands for “Dangit” :joy: :rofl:
Gonna have to go look that one up.

No wonder I am having so many issues with parts identification… it’s a 9mm for crying out loud! I got stuck on the bullet feeder thingy box since it looked like it was for feeding .22lr rimless shells.

I should have known you all would come up with a bunch of wise-cracks!

Someone can feel free to give the right answers for those who are newer to firearms - and PLEASE feel free to describe what each part does. :stuck_out_tongue:

What he said.

As to how to modify the parts The VooDoo That I Do.

I really need to finish that project, about all I have done is add Houge grips to it but I still have to get after the feed ramp and some internal bits as well as the hammer.

Wrong - wrong

:wink: :lying_face:

A magazine is designed as a device that holds ammo to be fed into the chamber of a firearm .

A clip is designed as a device to hold ammo together to be ready to load into a magazine or cylinder of a firearm .

So H-> magazine

Please do not mess with Pro-Gunners :yum:

Ahhhh yes Grasshopper, but the En-Block Clip for the M1 Garand is designed to hold ammunition to be directly fed into the weapon itself. The Garand does not have a magazine.
