  1. I use Dillon lube on all my pistol cases. Not because it's necessarily better, just cause that's what I bought. It makes an immediately noticeable difference in how smooth the press operates. I will always use case lube. I fill up a large plastic bag with a hopper full of brass. Spray a light coating over the visible brass then seal the bag and shake it all up for a bit to make sure it's all spread around. Then it goes right in the case feeder.

  2. I had a new Edge recently that would hammer follow frequently (at least once per mag, sometimes more). Took to my gunsmith and he found out the hammer hooks were below min spec for length and no amount of sear spring adjustments would make it right. Replaced the hammer and gun is perfect. Just something to keep in mind. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Definitely, or another option is to switch to a micro dot. I scrapped the C-more and went with a Leupold Deltapoint Pro in a cheely mount and have had zero issues with ejection. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. I have a dvc 9mm. It's my first and only open gun, so my experience is not extensive. I'm very happy with it. I have primarily shot 7.0 gr of AC under a coated lead 125 (about 6,000 rounds). Recently I tried some 115gr MG JHPs and bumped the charge to 7.5. Gun stayed flatter and I thought it was a big improvement! Ive got to assume that additional dose of gas helped the comp work a little better off as it should. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. As long as no comp, or red dot You're good to go in USPSA limited. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Absolutely. I wanted aggressive and I got it. Paired with VZ Diamondback grips this thing stays put. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Cree Custom Guns I've got a custom gun built by Andy Cree and the checkering is excellent! Search for him on FB or email at Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Yes I agree totally. At this point I'll chalk it up to one of many unknown variables. If the repaired gun goes down again in the next 5-10,000 rounds I'll probably change my tune, but for now I'll take this in stride and cross my fingers that the repair turn around time is less than they quoted.

  9. Sti dvc 9mm. I've been VERY happy with mine. At 5200 rounds the barrel/comp cracked at the first port. That sucks, and sti has it now for repair. Other than that the gun ran perfect for all 5200 rounds. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. I shot a lot of those last year in my S2. Loaded to the same 1.09" as I had been for a CZ and it ran great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. I also just had a warranty contact with sti. At about 5k thru my dvc barrel the comp cracked. No issue from them, shipping label sent and headed to them for repair. I'd rather not have the issue, but I'm very happy with their response to it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Ya I called grams to order some spring kits and the owner made a big effort to convince me that he wasn't a fan of the mbx mags and that his followers would not work well in them... That said I have one FKS kit for a 170 mbx and after trimming the slide stop portion off I've found it to hold 29rnds of 9mm, just like my stock follower, and so far (admittedly very few rounds at this point) it's been reliable. Also, this is just a "feeling"- the follower seems much more stable than the stock one, like it wld be less likely to flip and seize up like my stock follower had done a few times Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Yes. It might not fit exactly as tight on the belt, but it will work fine. It seems like the DAA belts are just a hair bigger in all dimensions than most other I've tried. Makes for a PIA installing gear, but also makes for a very solid mount. Going to a larger size belt recently (damn getting older) I took my gear from the DAA to another brand I had taken from a match last year. Fits well and solid, but there is just a little play in the mag pouches that isn't there with the DAA belt. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Cool. Thx for the response. You might be costing me money... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. So now that these have been out for a little bit what's the experience? I'm looking at picking one up, but the only person I spoke to that has one warned me that he found the need to process brass and swage it before being able to run this reliably. I currently run my range pick up 9mm thru a tumbler and then lube and load without much further issue. If going to the mark7 added a significant amount of brass prep I think it would be a deal breaker. Any word on this out there? Any personal experience heads up would be appreciated Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
