It is always best to use quality ammo, however as ammo prices continue to go up, many may find inexpensive import ammo an attractive alternative. I noticed steel cased lacquer coated ammo leaves "sludge" in the chamber.
As an engraver/gunsmith I do a lot of polishing by hand and have a few things that might help others.
If you use an AR-15 armorer's wrench to tighten a flash hider and you are using a crush washer, the wrench may bind. The tail end of an A2 flash hider is shorter than the wrench is thick.
Brownells sells all of the tools needed to install an ejector and spring into a Remington 870. I have made a block to hold the receiver for the rivet staking.
I have a bolt stop mod I thought up this past winter for an M98/M96 Mauser. With the square look of the bolt stop, I wanted to remove the blocky look so after playing around on the Bridgeport this idea was born.
I finally got the Colt together and test fired that I had to repair after cutting into the firing pin safety hole.

I was reading about the use of snap caps and the harm that sometimes can be done to firing pins when not using them.
Replacement of the Glock trigger connectors and factory connectors. Make sure the gun is safe and remove all ammunition from the work area.
