  1. Just got back from putting another hundred or so rounds through it since I just installed the dot. Positives: Dot worked well, very bright, easy to zero Mount worked well Love the extended mag release Gun is super accurate Cons: Trigger is awful for a competition gun Grip tape didn't last 1 magazine. Not sure if the grip needs to be scuffed up, superglue used, etc. Still very tight (not really a con). Because of how tight it is the gun is way over-sprung.
  2. Does anyone know the answer regarding the mag well for CO? From what I have read it does not appear to be legal.....
  3. I took a bit off the back lip of the mount to get it to fit. Not a big deal.
  4. Set up the X5 last night. Thanks to Scott Springer for the base pads, extended mag release and mounting plate. Went with the Vortex Venom. I will try to get out in the next couple of days and see how it does.
  5. I am in the same boat. Thinking about the Leopold with the 7.5 min delta, with the Springer adapter. Anyone set up something like that?
  6. Has anyone tried grinding down the grip yet? Would love to make it as small as possible.
  7. Picked up my X5 today. Seems like a very good platform. Needs trigger work :). I would like the grip to be a bit smaller....we will see what happens with it. I am thinking about running a Leopold dot, Springer base pads, etc. just to play around in CO. Any thoughts?
  8. Far more important than the number of mags is that they work. I take 6 or 7 with me that I have absolute faith in and clean them as necessary during the match (which means not much)
  9. I sent mine to Bruce. I did not weigh it prior to sending it, but I can tell you that it dropped WAY more than 1.5 lab's, along with being a much cleaner break.
  10. I have shot both the Trojan and Para SS' quite a bit. Either will do what you need them to. Both will require a bit of work to truly make them a "competitive" pistol. One of the nice features on the Trojan is the flat topped slide. One of the nice features on the Para is the checkered front strap. I shot both with ammo loaded long, 1.180, in 10mm mags.
  11. Just got the 320 back from Bruce. I have some 147 AAA loads to try in it. What (if any) has been the consensus of loads for these? Thanks!
  12. I am going to try and make it. Sounds like a great match.
  13. Stripper lipstick red
  14. There must be other factors between the guns other than the sight tracker, to account for the remaining weight difference. Is one a long dust cover and the other short?
  15. Shot yesterday. Great stages! Lots of opportunity to shoot the presentations differently. Beautiful weather. What else could you ask for?
