What would you people say the Three best accuracy tips are ,for your contender or encore pistols and rifles?????
Free-floating the barrel might help, but my most accurate bull barreled Contenders shoot almost as well with the Pachmayer forend screwed down tight as they do with wooden forends touching only to the barrel hanger. This trick might buy you a little more accuracy on the bench. The better forend trick is to get a wooden forend with a wide, flat bottom so it rides the bags well - this can help turn 0.9 moa groups into 0.5 moa groups. As stated above, gun handling is critical to small groups with a handgun....free float the barrel....
I don't get keeping the action dry. I grease and oil the moving parts in my action and it made a huge difference. Especially the trigger, it seems much smoother.Lone Star said:keeping the action dry with no oil on the action parts;
I've shot Contenders for 31 years, and for the last 25 of those years I've used a dry action. Why? Initially because the factory recommended not to use oil in the action. Now it is in the owner's manuals too. The manual which came with my last frame says this on page 13: "Never use any oils or grease on any internal parts." RTFM.I don't get keeping the action dry.Could please explain why I should keep it dry.
