  1. I paid shipping out, they paid the return. About 8 weeks. I sent a gun to STI the same day that had a problem with the sights from the factory and that gun still isn't back yet. And all it needs is a new front sight.
  2. Just figured I'd update since I got my gun back from Bobby today. When I sent it off I stripped out one of the optic mount screws on accident. Bobby replaced the slide, removed the stripped screw, remounted with 5 new screws, remounted the comp with fresh set screws (I think he cleaned it a bit too), refinished the ENTIRE gun, and sent it back literally like new. And he didn't ask for a dime even for the stripped screw that was my fault. Can't say enough good things about CK right now.
  3. The slow motion footage on the video makes it look like the Q100 had significantly less muzzle flip than the K100 you reviewed previously. Did you find that to be the case?
  4. Bought a used one off the forums here. Was a bit concerned since one of the grip screws was stripped out and there were some cosmetic issues (from the factory, not from use). Took it to the range and was blown away. Accuracy was incredible and the gun ran no matter what I put in it.
  5. This. Sample size of 1 is irrelevant. Read up on the RTS 2 and you'll find a lot more issues.
  6. You only need a thin piece of plastic with 16 numbers and an expiration date. Step 1: go to www.midsouthshooterssupply.com Step 2: Buy Hornady powder measure. Step 3: Wait a few days Step 4: Now you have a standalone powder measure!
  7. November of 2015 is when I purchased
  8. Yes it is a CK, there are about 10k rounds through the gun.
  9. This look like the beginning of a crack around the ejection port? It continues up the slide, over the ejection port, and back down the other side a bit.
  10. Mine have been 100% as well
  11. Because then I would have no wife and no Trubor when she takes it with her. Yeah, that would go over like a lead balloon. The kind of birthday present that ends with me sleeping on my best friend's couch!
  12. Looks like a medieval torture device strapped to the muzzle.
  13. Thanks for the feedback. I hadn't considered the possibility of the frame wearing unevenly with two slides. If I could find a used trubor or something similar around the $2k mark that would be a good alternative, but i haven't seen anything that cheap on the classifieds in a while. Although with the current market that is always a possibility. I will have to shoot Dan an email this week. I have heard nothing but good things.
  14. In regards to whether a handguard is a foregrip, a person could remove the handguard and then grab the barrel just like it was a handguard. What now? A barrel is a foregrip?
  15. I have an interesting, and possibly stupid for reasons I don't understand yet, solution to several gun "problems" I need to solve. I own two guns for competition - a CK Thunder open for USPSA which is my main sport, and an STI HexTac for IDPA and any random off-match that requires irons. I finally got my wife at least mildly interested in shooting when she discovered a gun that was actually fun to shoot in that same HexTac. I want to build her a pistol with an optic to keep things fun and interesting for her. I would also like a backup gun for USPSA open because in open sometimes stuff happens. Solution: Build a second upper for the HexTac to run 9 major with a compensator and slide mounted optic. Advantages: Still ESP legal Optic with minor loads = fun for wife Switch to backup open gun with an upper swap Easy loaner gun for that friend who wants to try open Much cheaper than a third gun Disadvantages: Slide-mounted optic Small magwell Currently I am thinking of running a Binary Engineering comp, popple holes, lightening cuts, and a slide mounted deltapoint pro. Questions: Is there a reason this is a really bad idea? Build suggestions? Smith suggestions? Cost or savings ideas? (I am ballparking around $1500 for the complete upper and machining based on no experience whatsoever) Something else to consider? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks!
