    These DiOrio, MD-PAS triple pistols are coming

    These DiOrio, MD-PAS triple pistols are coming


    _______________________


    CYA friends:


    The most anticipated and citing new development in Big Time RFBR today, is the possibility of these new DiOrio, MD-PAS triple pistols, for the masses.


    I just received a picture of Jeff Patterson's new bi-pod for these new pistols.


    I love it.....


    Man I'm cited..............and so is the rest of the world of Big Time RFBR...


    Your friend, Bill Calfee


    _______________________________



    Jeff, it's awesome.......I hope you find time to produce them, cause there's about to be a demand.

    CYA friends:


    I've not talked to Jeff Patterson since he sent me this picture.......


    Here I'm busy looking at the bi-pod itself and didn't notice the three sets of aluminum hardware for the rail attachment to the right of the legs.


    Unless Jeff's getting ready to build himself four pistols it looks like he will be producing these bi-pods, although I'll have to confirm that.



    ___________________



    Jeff told me he's going to first try a different set-up for placing the bi-pod feet on the bench, rather than using rubber feet resting on the Eley ammo trays.


    He said he's going to try Delrin ball feet resting on a hard smooth surface.


    __________________



    CYA friends, this is what's going to be so kool about these pistols, folks will try different methods of dealing with the bi-pod/bench top.


    If what Jeff is doing doesn't pan out, he can always go to the rubber feet on the Eley trays, or, like I used to do, have the rubber feet resting on a sheet of material that in turn rests on a flat base plate.

    The idea here, and it works great, if for the rubber feet to grip the thin top sheet and allow it to slide on the base plate.


    I used this method for years, actually using a phone book cover for the thin top sheet......


    By the way, the base plate needs to have three thin pads under it, so it can't possibly rock on an uneven bench top.


    I found some thin, clear rubber pads that I glued to my bottom plate...


    One of my base plates has three round pads made from 80 grit wet or dry sand paper....and works great.


    ______________________


    Anyway, it's going to be fascinating to watch the creativity of folks with these pistols.

    Versatility is the key

    You need the right weapons for the coming revolution. I whipped this one up with my right hand (I'm left handed) while watching a basketball game, playing chess, and writing a letter with my eyes and my left hand. Granted it still needs a tip on one of the long legs, but you can only do so much in fifteen minutes especially when you're not looking.

    This has the cross brace as you notice and the stability is readily apparent.

    There's a minimum of seven inches lift from the base. Probably about 6 1/2 considering the forward angle. The longer legs provide a max of about 91/2 inches. It should work well for the owner who has one that covers about 5 inches.






    I can't say who really made it. He said he's not in the business.

    V-3 XP pistols

    I would be surprised if numerous enthusiasts werenít making bi-pods and whatever else they can getting ready for the forthcoming V-3 XP. Iím going to stop on my bi-pods until I actually get my hands on the stock I will be using....probably not the nylon Remington stock I currently have. I want to know the slope of the forend before I finish the yoke....donít want the legs to be to vertical or splayed to much. At this point I want a LBLP action...allowing me to keep my shooting hand on the grip between shots. Even though I love the look of the standard Remington stock and I have an extra one, iím afraid it would be a real bugger to modify it to left bolt. Working on the things I can furnish helps reduce the anxiety I have waiting for my new present for me from me....and Mr. DiOrio.8949AF48-62D2-4103-94C4-3AA83D3F4DB9.jpg

    Friend Bn1:



    You took the words right out of my mouth........


    There's a bunch of folks with ideas mulling around in their heads about these pistols.


    I like the idea of the knurled attachment bolt.........instead of using an Allen wrench...


    If one could make it captive to the aluminum saddle, that would be kool....


    I bet I've thought about doing this 50 times over the years, but never did.......



    __________________________________



    A very important question, and one which I've yet to answer, is this:



    I'm right handed, so what bolt/port configuration will ultimately work best?


    I spent my entire shooting career shooting a right/right XP pistol.


    And I felt in no way handicapped.....but, of course, I had no choice in the matter.



    The MD-PAS triple pistol I'm now building is RB/LP...


    So I'm in for a new experience..........


    I've sat and pretended I was shooting my new RB/LP pistol.......


    Trying to get a feel for what it's going to be like.......


    But, until I actually get it completed, and actually get to fool with it, I can't be sure whether I'll like it better, or not.


    There's one thing for sure, since it's a 10-X based triple lug action, if I don't like it, I'm stuck, since I can't dual port it since 10-X removed the backbone of the action with their loading port configuration.


    I'd use my new V-3 instead, in a heartbeat, but, the spacer to extend the front to XP length would have to bear the entire front bedding.....



    Which means the spacer's attachment method would have to be as strong as the rest of the action, which would be a nightmare to execute.


    The spacer for this 10-X action only needs to hold the recoil lug for the trigger linkage...since the action is long enough for the front bedding, as is.




    _____________________



    You're right, the factory XP stocks are a nightmare to alter......way too much trouble...


    But they do have the "classic" look of a Class A RFBR pistol.


    A proper center grip stock, for the masses, will have to be developed, and there's folks doing that as I type this.

    Friend Bn1, if you did the bi-pod in the picture Wally posted, that is nice work.

    Bi pod

    Yes, whoever did Mr. Smallwood’s bi pod did really nice word with some good innovations. I’m not going to cut the legs to length until I have the stock. The legs are 5/16”. .049wall 604 stainless steel tube. I don’t have a lathe, so I coildn’t Bore the end of solid stock. By the looks of the recent pictures posted, it looks like bi pods will not be much of a problem for those putting pistols together. I’m sure as other issues/needs come up someone will post pictures and solutions. I’m having a good time, thanks for your forum!
    Come on people....it’s show and tell time.

    Wally:



    When I first read your post, I thought you had doodled the picture of this bi-pod....


    Whoever built this bi-pod did an exceptional job....


    It looks like the aluminum saddle is rounded in front......kool!


    Man I'm cited....

    Bill,

    I told you once that I couldn't draw a stick man. I sure couldn't draw that even though it is just angles, but it would require me drawing convincing feet and knurled bolts. Couldn't do it.

    It's real, and will be in action shortly. I just can't tell who did it because as he said "I'm not in the business" but looks like many people are jumping in.

    Wally, yes, there's a ton on interest in these pistols......I mean a ton...



    I really like the knurled attachment bolt.........do you know if the maker of this bi-pod made it captive with the aluminum saddle?


    I've thought about doing something similar for years, but just never got around to it.....


    But I just may do it now........


    Wally, creative things inspire......just like that knurled attachment bolt......


    To have it captive with the bi-pod would be the koolest thing ever.



    Your friend, BC
