There's a Contender and a G2 (and I believe the correct name is Contender G2).

Is it just me? It's like calling a magazine a clip!

The G1 thing doesn’t bother nearly as bad as the magazine/clip thing. I have to bite my lip every time some says clip..... I want to correct them but I don’t want to sound like a know it all either..... hammer

It's sort of like calling a bullet, a boolit.

"G1" bugs the heck out of me every time I read or hear it.

One of my peeves is calling the bolts a lug or lugs when the lug is welded to the barrel.

When I sale a barrel/forend I list it as fitting the Contender/G2. Without fail I have people wanting to know if it will fit a G1. Dead Horse

Drives me nuts.
There was N-E-V—E-R a G1 until there was a G2 puke

Lugs vs bolts
Clips vs magazines

Both get the same result from me, like fingernails on a chalk board.

Ops, those that don’t know what a chalk board is probably know what a G1 or a clip is laugh

Not stressing, merely pointing out a lack of education. We must educate! No different than educating people who think a handgun can only shot 25 yards accurately.

Ernie my friend you made me smile. While I understand everyone's frustration I have to agree with Ernie. When the DR. said seven years ago "Your Wife is cancer FREE" the first chance I got I hit my knees and made a promise, not to sweat the small stuff. She is still cancer FREE (Thank you God) and while I fail sometime I do my best to keep my promise.

Not trying to rain on your thread. I consider you all my family and love and respect you all (Well most of you LOL). Just my 2cents

Does everyone complaining about this small issue know the correct name for every part in every firearm they own? Doubtful.

As long as everyone understands what’s being talked about who cares.....

If someone says their clip won’t feed in their pistol.....I still know what they are talking about...

True, in forums it’s communication which matters. Bad grammar/spelling used to bother me, but now I don’t go postal when I read “I can’t bare that theirs no bullets inna mi lockal gun store!” because I know what he means, that’s what matters. With all that’s going on in the world today, I don’t have the emotional bandwidth to sweat the small stuff.

Most of us use g 1 because of the G2 designation...

Now make it more fun

Do you have an early frame with full etching or partial etching?
Which version of the hammer does it have?
Front hinge, easy open, or the conversion?
If conversion, do you have the original trigger guard?

And finally, they're locking bolts, not bolts. Contenders don't have a bolt.

Stressed or complaining ....not really. Just noting things that bug us. I bet there are lots of people that get “bugged” about this that n the other.

Spelling doesn’t bother me much. If they get close enough, i can understand. I hope that never keeps people from posting. Typing on phones can be tricky also.

It is human nature to do such things. They will call it as they want no matter if it is wrong. There are countless examples of this and while it drives me crazy, but sometimes I think that talking about it is Dead Horse

As an engineer, I see that a lot, practically every da, wrong terms being used. Some of those are so extreme and so dumb but I guess people are allowed to be like that Big Grin

Well I am not as easily peeved as you guys having used the term "First Generation" many times to denote the difference from a Contender and a G2. The deal is so many people don't have a clue so you have to help them out.

Tim, I resemble that remark.

The reference to the contender vs G2 thing doesn't really bother me much. The Boolit and the magazine vs clip thing kind of does. None of these bother me as much as some very often seen things that are non-gun related. I'm sure I post things sometimes that cause others to cringe so I try to just chill out.

Yep, he has run with the G 1 labeling. Part of the reason many are confused enough to think a G 1 exists.

As a side note, why is G 1, being censored here when the G and the 1 are placed right together?
