  1. I bought a $16 dollar M3500 lifter from Numrich and cut it back a bit. Works great in my M3000. Not sure why Midwest has them @ $75 bucks.
  2. I ran 5 of the 4 packs through my M3000 with no issues. On the 6th pack it turned into a single shot. I'm afraid they are very inconsistent with the powder charge. I'm no longer using them.
  3. Usually about 30 days.
  4. They just want everyone to run stock, out of the box guns for all but one the classes. It's really geared towards beginners and has simple stages with no movement or reloads on the clock. You don't even need a holster. They have an unlimited class for guns with mods.
  5. Dawson Sights TTI Trigger kit Steel guide rod/13lb spring Springer Base Pads Pearce Grip Plug Everything but the sights will need to be removed and put back to stock unless entering Unlimited class. Base pads and plugs are usually not looked at to close but they can be weighted. An RO looking close could bump you to unlimited.
  6. I picked up some similar Gorilla grips from Chris at CPWSA and really like 'em. Didn't seem overly rough.
  7. That would be my guess. Ordered a sight set a couple weeks ago and shipping was $3.99. I liked that. I shipped on 9/8 and said due on 9/12. Finally showed up on 9/17. Guess cheap prices = cheap delivery service.
  8. The only difference is the length, 3/4 or 1 inch.(15/16). The longer one was only one in stock when I ordered. Took about an hour of grinding all the extra with my belt sander clamped to a bench.
  9. I used the 'Special Slotted" Kickeez. http://www.kickeezproducts.com/eezy-fit.php The slot gives you a lot space and I didn't have to re-drill. It it big though, I had a lot to grind off.
  10. Yeah? Please name one that works on 3 gun shotguns. I saw on FB that Steve Rose built a M2 for Katelyn Francis. I bet he did a lot of chopping to get it down to her size. The benellis would take a lot more work with those clip in pads.
  11. Any gunsmith should be able to fit and grind a recoil pad. I just did it the redneck way. I cut the stock with my miter saw and ground it with my belt sander clamped on a bench. Any decent smith should have a bandsaw, jig, and disk sander to get the job done right.
  12. I tried to shorten it with the stock pad like Ryan but ran into problem grinding the stock pad. It has a scalloped plate that wouldn't grind clean. I picked up a kick-ez pad with a long slot that you can fit to a lot of guns. I had to make another cut as it was longer but it worked out fine. I was able to cut about 5/8 off and still was able to use the stock mounting holes. If I took much more off I would have had to add a new screw hole with epoxy to get it mounted. It's shade under 14" now. I still have some finish grinding to do but here is a pick after the rough grind. The kick-ez makes a big difference in the felt recoil.
  13. My m3000 needed mods, serial 1247xxx. Fitting a kick-ez on it this weekend to shorten it up.
  14. I picked up a 24" at the local gander back around the end of October. They had the black 24, 26, 28 listed on the web for $479 back then.
  15. From what I can tell from the latest posts it's the M3500 models that has been reported as a direct fit. Most of the M3000s seem to need a little work with the exception of Mr. Kelleys.
