Shot my new G20 gen4!

I took my new G20 gen4 out to the range last weekend, I didnt have too much time but I did shoot 100 rounds of armscor 180gr fmj and a 20rd box of buffalo bore 220gr hardcast through her.

I was a little nervous about its reliability after reading others struggles, but it ran without a hitch! I know its not much of a test, however im encouraged. TFO sights are awesome, and that bufalo bore ammo is HOT. The armscor brass was falling 5 or so feet away and the buffalo bore brass was getting launched WAY farther.

Ive got a RDR OWB holster on order, cant wait for this to be my woods/ high desert companion!

Did you recover you brass for study of case expansion or possible bulging or "SMILES"???
That could tell yo more about how your in battery lockup, RSA and chamber support are working as a whole with the Buffalo Bore ammo more so than the Armscor ammo.

Glad your G-20 4th gen is running right as is...

I recovered all but one piece of brass... that sucker ended up in the weeds. I didnt notice any of the well defined "smiles" that I have seen pictures of, but I am seeing some bulging. Not much, I had to look hard and its pretty slight. Is slight bulging common? Thanks!

Sounds like your gun is working well with the ammo and the chamber and lockup is fairly decent if you're not seeing smiles with the factory barrel. Usually factory barrels allow brass to expand to 0.4340" any more and then you may see a "SMILE" develop.

Soft round bulges are normal...

Congrats! If you wish join us over at 10mmFirearms http://10mm-firearms.com/index.php
