  1. Aren't the iPad's (mini's too) harder to see outside, especially when bright sun?
  2. Yes, what Chuck said
  3. Since SPS tubes are generally "softer" metal than sti, svi or mbx they don't tend to keep their shape as long. I had two that ran perfect for two years (Grams internals and bp's, tube dimensions tuned properly) until one day they would not feed reliably anymore. Did everything possible to make right again, they do now run but I'll only use them for practice.
  4. I would still email Beven.
  5. You will get plenty of responses I'm sure but there is a recent thread here in this section about the same thing. Plus, try doing a search, you'll get tons of information. Good luck, welcome
  6. You most likely talked to Beven, the man himself, not Devon. Beven will never steer you wrong, he is the best.
  7. Reality is the actual length of the tubes vary just a little so buying one size bp because a chart tells you so is a gamble. If you don't have one ask fellow competitors you shoot with if they have a mag length gauge you can borrow. If you never do this and one day you are at a match and then find out the 170 mag is just a smidge too long because they were checking..... Personally I prefer Grams BP's, springs and followers. Good luck in the path to the dark side. 😊
  8. I tried searching and came up with nothing. The new IMR Blue powder, has anyone done any load testing in 38 super/SC for an open gun? If yes, please post some results or direct me to a thread where it is talked about. Thanks
  9. Have to agree with you on that
  10. ok, I'll add clarity to that. Using a longer OAL in a factory old-style STI mag with no spacers is not the fix for not needing spacers. Those that run with longer OAL and no spacers in the old style sti mags are lucky if it has worked. Correct, the use of spacers necessitates using a more normal OAL for 9mm.
  11. OAL of ammo has nothing to do with needing spacers in the old style sti mags. Those that run with longer OAL and no spacers in the old style sti mags are lucky if it has worked. Spacers will make 9mm rounds more reliable in the old style tubes(2 control ribs on each side). New style sti mags have one, wider control rib per side, much like sps, svi and mbx, which facilates not needing a spacer to run 9mm.
  12. Don't just throw it in, needs to be fitted properly, which is not necessarily making sure the fp stop is fit correctly, like ltdmstr said above.
  13. Ask Lee Neal as well
  14. couldn't you just use a clear lacquer from a spray can? Like done when sealing up a painted grip. Used that on my stippled and painted grip, holding up fine after several years.
