  1. Production rules are behind the hip bones. Angle doesn't matter. I run mine at an angle too, I didn't do well with the straight up mag holders. Found I had to lean away and wasted the extra movement and lost consistency trying to index to the same grip on the magazine. CRSpeed mag holsters are my preference.
  2. My LGS (also one of the only 13 CZ LE dealers) just informed me he's got a couple Shadow 2's delivered from CZ USA. So they appear to be finally showing up at the next level...getting closer to that 2,000 units!
  3. My thought is it was good as shot. If it had fallen I don't see it would have given you a competitive advantage. If it fell into the shooting box/area and you or the RO thought it interfered too much you could have suggested this rule: 8.6.4 In the event that inadvertent contact from the Range Officer or another external influence has interfered with the competitor during a course of fire, the Range Officer may offer the competitor a reshoot of the course of fire. The competitor must accept or decline the offer prior to seeing either the time or the score from the initial attempt.
  4. Wow, just wow. I can't imagine any mechanical stress on that part of the barrel would cause it to separate like that at under 40K rounds. Glad the slide appears intact. It's an easy fix to fit a new barrel!
  5. Never seen that done. Different sight cut, the TS uses a LPA cut and I'm guessing that'd be too deep for the 75 firing pin channel. If you find a pic of what you saw, post the link.
  6. Post Optics Nats this is an amazing post...great match for the internet trolls to follow. "I wish there was A+ scoring, so my parents will tell me that I did "OK" - The Thumbless Korean You rock. Now I'll start practicing so I can be like you!
  7. Absolutely. Getting one custom ordered in that same config is pricey...
  8. Very nice. Hope you see you (and that sweet blaster) at a match! Might need to show off that thing at a few of the other local clubs...
  9. If you have a slide already fit, send that along with the frame. Ideally you'd fit the slide after the frame chroming. I think they bead blast the sharp edges so the chrome sticks better. Plating is pretty thick so I'm assuming it'd cover minor tooling marks. I've only had them hard chrome a cast steel CZ frame for me, matte finish, and it's holding up very well.
  10. http://members.idpa.com/Content/Competitions/Scores/aj3njawl.3ak.pdf Vogel's final time at 204.84, next closest shooter is 264.58. I don't think I counted more than 10 shooters under the 300 second mark. +1 second penalty really spread out the scores... From what I'm reading above, the late coordination to the match didn't bring all the top shooters either. But the +1 second penalty totally changes the game dynamic.
  11. Looks like Production shooters should have an opportunity for a "match bump" in their classification!
  12. You'll see that CZ seems to have a cycle for their steel framed guns arriving in the US. This year has been less predictable than the last two with support for new product lines and one-off items (ie, steel frame short rail manual safety) in the mix.
  13. Niiice! Minus getting the account and verifying my email...but worth doing! Thanks, Robot!
  14. I had the same exact failure on my crank arm at around 12K rounds. They sent new arms for both sides PLUS the brass sockets (upgrades from the delrin sockets). I do notice the upper left socket is looser than the other 4, so I wonder if that had something to do with it. That and I had a batch of tough primer pockets once... Glad Dillon has their great warranty!
  15. Good comparison on the slide differences. The Czechmate is still on my wish list!
