  1. Open Gun Design Questions

    PT agressive steel grip. limcat mount with thumb rest. SV trigger to suit. SV disconnector. EGW hard sear. Caspian slide. STI long wide frame. 9 mm. Delta Point 2.5 MOA KKM, Scuman or Kart barrel. All good.
  2. 2011 Build Parts Check

    You need to budget finishing.
  3. Any new single sided safeties?

    I use EGW. It is a great product.
  4. Atlas. Approximate wait 2 months.
  5. Holster for EVO grip

    DAA Alpha X. Simply the best available.
  6. WSM2 vs DAA Race Master

    DAA Alpha X. Simply the best I've tried.
  7. Thumb Rest

    No problem using a slide stop thumb rest. It is easy to try without drilling your frame. Drilled frames seem to lower the value if you ever decide to sell.
  8. New Atlas Open 2011

    Looks great. Adam does great work! I look forward to an update after your Stoeger class.

    At the 2016 US National 39% of the contestants shot 9 and 46% shot 38.
  10. Most dependable Open Gun?

    9 major 124 JHP at 1.165 and 7.0 grains of Silhouette. 171 PF. Very soft and reliable.
  11. Most dependable Open Gun?

    I disagree about about buying a 38 SC over 9MM gun. 9MM bras is ubiquitous, easy to find, very inexpensive and most importantly safe. I will send you by PM a builder many in the midwest have used and all operate reliably.
  12. Most dependable Open Gun?

    The overwhelming majority of open shooters use STI framed guns based on the 2011 platform. I think it would be a mistake to stray to far from this platform. There are several custom builders that will build a polymer gripped custom gun within your budget.
  13. New open gun coming along

    If that shoots half as good as it looks we will have another GM.
