  1. This will sound weird but check the gas tube and gas key on the BCG. The end of the gas tube that inserts into the gas key on the BCG may be damaged and when it heats up it will expand and lock into the gas key and lock up the gun. This happened to me a while back and I replaced the gas tube and have had no more issues.
  2. Look at the Taccom Load Assist, its a flat piece of carbon fiber that attaches to the lifter. It will assist greatly at loading the shotgun. I tried the factory lifter as well as the TTI lifter modified for the M3000 and the shells would occasionally hang up while quad loading. With the Taccom load assist I no longer have that problem and my fumble factor when quad loading has greatly diminished. Plus its only a $10 part. Also opening up the loading port is a must. I would highly recommend sending the gun up to MOA to have them open the port up, the work is top notch and will be what you need to load quads with ease.
  3. I have a Iron City Rifle Works Evo G2 BCG and really like it, I went for the Nickel Boron one. I run the Taccom spring and buffer kit. Have had 100% function with it and its very flat shooting. Also have a JP adjustable gas block which is a must have.
  4. Congrats on the new purchase, I love my 650, glad I spent the money on one. I got the two primer upgrades from and they are well worth it. I also use the dillon roller handle and its so much smoother when sitting for a long reloading session. Next upgrade with probably be the shell plate bearing kit.
  5. I'm not sure a bolt handle can work itself loose unless its defective. It would have to have a quite a bit of wear to just fallout. I hate to say it but it kinda sounds like someone stole your handle when you weren't looking.
  6. My only issue with the Swage It, is the fact that it voids the warranty on the 650 if its used. I would much rather keep the warranty on the press and find another way to swage brass.
  7. As the above posters have stated having 2 separate tool heads is the way to go. I have my case prep tool head set up and then my reloading tool head. I used to use a Giraud for trimming/chamfer/debur and when I purchased my 650 I sold that on got the Dillon case trimmer. It's much quicker, and having to handle the cases less is a big time saver. I swage on a single stage press and use the RCBS Primer Pocket Swager Combo 2. It's a bit time consuming but I know for sure my primers will seat every time, something that I had an issue with when I was cutting the primer pockets out.
  8. I have a Safariland belt set up with a Carbon Arms ratchet kit and really like it. The ability to adjust the tension on the belt between stages is great. I also like the ELS system a lot. Its nice being able to take the mag pouches and shotshell caddies off between stages without having to remove the belt like the tek-loks.
  9. You should check out LAG Tactical they make a holster called the "Nova" and its great, I use one for my G34 and will soon be getting one for my CZ TS. They make them for several different guns and models.
  10. I have 2 M3000's and the Federal bulk packs are hit or miss with them, one gun was firing them no problem then after a while it started to have the "click" every so often. The other gun had more failure to fires. I have ditched the Federal ammo and have gone to Remington Gun Club, 1 1/8 loads and so far they have been good. I have not had any failures since switching. Buying the Remington per case is about the same price as 3 packs of the bulk Federal and you know they will fire.
  11. Did you insert the shim? It is needed for frames that have a narrow trigger guard. I had a gls when I had my SP01 and it worked very well.
  12. I've used Shot Timer and PS Timer Lite. Shot Timer drove me nuts when you want to hit stop you need to slide over a bar to stop the timer. With PS Timer Lite there is button to hit to stop the timer. The only issue with PS Timer Lite is the add at the top of the screen, but hey its free and it works so I deal with it. The top photo is Shot Timer, bottom is PS Timer Lite
  13. 1st I have a Carbon Arms belt ratchet kit and love it. It makes tightening the belt so easy, also run 2-3 shot shell caddies, 2 pistol mag pouches and 1 ar pouch. I have it all set up on a Safariland belt so I can swap out as needed
  14. I had the Strike Eagle for a while and thought it was okay, I upgraded the the PST 1-4 and am glad I did. I like the smaller reticle in the PST, the Strike Eagle was a bit to big for my liking and the PST glass is clearer.
  15. I have the Springer +0 base pads and really like them. I like the options of getting them numbered and my name on them if needed. They add just enough weight to help the mags drop a bit easier.
