FFL holders can have a book that use to record guns they take in for repair. Your Remington 870 breaks (Yes, I have done it) you take it back to the store and they take it in. They register it in the repair book to account for it being in the store but they do not have to do another check when it comes back repaired. I think the sticky point in FFL's comes in if you are actually manufacturing firearms. Then that is a different license.

Researching how to get an FFL is confusing. I’d like to get into something like that for some side money, not to mention I’ve enjoyed doing the frames I’ve done.

I ran a couple of hundred rounds through my G20 with Wolff 22 pound springs. It cycled everything from fairly mild loads to buffalo bore hardcast. No issues, apparently no reason to change springs by the load.

I tried a heavier spring in mine, however it slowed the return to battery just enough to drive me back to stock weight. I like it fast; hand and maybe the pistol take a little more of a beating, but re-acquisition of sights was paramount for me.

It's been a long time since I looked into this. The part that stopped me was, IIRC, the requirement for a "business address with posted hours" that was inspectable by the ATF.

I think some time ago, they really cracked down on the rules and made it hard for "kitchen table" FFLs. Many that you see now were grandfathered.

There is a cop that lives between you and me (Avon Lake) that is an FFL. Used him for my last four or five purchases. I can hook you up with him if you want.

That would be great. I’ll be back from CA the 16th-24th. Chimo mentioned a link up if we are all free. You have my info if you’re free.

What I do, for a recoil spring/load test, is w/a fully loaded magazine: fire from retention, fire strong hand, fire weak hand.


If, the pistol functions correctly & feels smooth; for say 3-4 iterations, that combination is a go.

Putting anything else on or taking off the pistol, such as a light & or a comp, magwell, new barrel, slide cuts will sometimes significantly change that. Also, as the pistol "breaks in" there will be a change.


Good shooting

Glockcqc, thanks. That's a sensible procedure. I'll do it.

Yeah like 20 years ago under Clinton. There are plenty of people who have an FFL at their house these days.

Thanks!

I'd been looking at doing an FFL and my research had said the same. So good to hear from another source.
