  1. This. Sample size of 1 is irrelevant. Read up on the RTS 2 and you'll find a lot more issues.
  2. 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!
  3. November of 2015 is when I purchased
  4. Yes it is a CK, there are about 10k rounds through the gun.
  5. 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.
  6. Mine have been 100% as well
  7. 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!
  8. Looks like a medieval torture device strapped to the muzzle.
  9. 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.
  10. 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?
  11. 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!
  12. doesn't just cover modifications, it covers excluded features as well. As I am reading that rule it means that even if that gun has the feature from the factory it is still an excluded feature. The Glock 34 makes into ESP because of the SSP to ESP rule. Every gun that is SSP legal is also ESP legal. I'm not sure what pro series S&W you are talking about - the m&p? If so that makes it into ESP the same way. If that DVC 3 gun was legal then someone must have decided that the cuts on the DVC fell into the category of front cocking serrations.
  13. On second read, I think applies in that case (and to the DVC 3 gun) ESP Excluded Features and Modifications (Non-Inclusive list): A. Removal of material from the exterior of the slide other than front cocking serrations, tri-top, engraving, carry melts, and high power cuts. It specifies excluded FEATURES and modifications. I don't know if the through cuts on the Thunder or DVC are going to be considered "front cocking serrations".
  14. Reloading isn't rocket surgery, but it's not as simple as putting brass, powder, and primers into the press and pulling the handle repeatedly. There could be a lot of different factors that cause individual problems based on someone's setup Ex: when I first started loading pistol I used a Lee 4 die kit. I noticed that every once in a while a bullet would fall out of the case. I started checking headstamps and they were all CBC. Why did this happen? I am pretty sure I know the reason, but I wonder how obvious the problem would be to other reloaders, especially newer ones.
  15. You can have them make it with a bushing barrel.
