Gun videos

Discussion in 'Firearms' started by Magdala_Buckley, Aug 8, 2019.


  1. Last Sunday I purchased a Phoenix Arms HP22A pistol. It's a solid little gun and I have had a blast with it. Phoenix Arms is located in Cuckifornia, so it has some stupid "safety" features I would like to disable. I want to find videos about the gun but I won't use Youtube because Google will not let people watch videos anonymously. I couldn't find anything on Bitchute and the manufacturer hasn't added videos yet. Are there any alternatives?

    You could try Porn Hub!
    No joke, they host a lot of videos that Utoob pulled or refused to host, and not just porn! No idea if its tracked besides your browser! No idea!

  6. I completely forgot about Pornhub. Thank you!
    No, I should have.

  7. I'd find out if my husband ever looks at my browser history. That would be pretty funny.

    It looks like two simple modifications. One can be reversible, with just a small bend to keep the the magazine retaining spring from interfering with the safety bar. (or you can chop it off, so it can never touch the safety bar.) The other modification to the safety bar itself is permanent. If you have the left grip off it should almost jump out at you when you look at the relationship between the safety and the safety bar and what it moves/blocks. It looks like they did everything short of marking cut and bend lines on the parts in anticipation of these modifications.

    After watching the video I've become rather fond of the design, and may have to get one myself. My experience with small .22 pistols is limited to the Beretta 21 Bobcat, which is a nice all steel design, but is ammo sensitive and fiddly to clear jams and stuck cases on.

    Unless the QC of these Ring of Fire guns has drastically improved I'll never trust them.

    Pheonix is like Jennings and Rohm, you get what you pay for. The Rohm RG-22 sold for $10 in 1965 and it's still worth about the same today.

    I'd trust a Rohm RG-22 over any Jennings, Jimenez, Raven, or the like. At the gunstore I frequent, they have a large box of broken pot metal gun like the above, but oddly enough only a couple of Rohms with one looking like it was in a fire and the other like it was disassembled and parts lost.

    Must be that German precision.

    More like they were never fired, only stuck in a sock drawer after a young beautician ordered it from the back of a True Detective magazine in 1960's. (My mother) She must have bought the deluxe version because it had a swing out cylinder with the built in ejector. But, like I've stated, there are more broken pot metal guns in gun shops than Rohm revolvers.

    Rohm had a wide selection of revolvers. Most people know only the cheapest models. Derogitorially called Roscoes, a lot of cops owe their lives to these cheapos failing in the hands of bad guys.
    But Rohm made better models too. My first cartridge revolver was an RG-57 I bought in the late 1970s. It's their. 357Magnum gun. Had a zamak frame, and a sleaved barrel like the Dan Wesson. Plastic target style grips resembling the Colt. Actually a good revolver. I shot mostly. 38 Special in it, with never a problem. Sadly I sold it to an Airforce buddy. Wish I still had it.
