  1. Best Grip for PCC rifle

    I like the Ergo. Really fits my hand well.
  2. getting it to run

    I just measured one that works and compared it to the one that didn't. The one that would double feed was wider.
  3. No loctite on either of mine. 20k rounds later they're both still tight.
  4. getting it to run

    Mic the mag lips. With my Metalforms, I had one that was a little wide that would occasionally double feed. Tightened it up in the vice to spec and have not had any problems since.
  5. For your second match you're doing fine. It takes a while to get comfortable running around with a rifle as opposed to a pistol, and movement really is the secret sauce. My number one suggestion would be to practice coming into your positions with the gun up ready to shoot, and break the shot the second you have a good sight picture. Do this left to right AND right to left. Also, get to know how fast you can double tap targets based on distance. Some of your splits on close targets were really slow. You don't always need a great sight picture for the second shot....if it's under 10 yards or so, blaze away!
  6. 9mm Barrel Question, WHO?

    I've had real good luck with both my JP barrels. I've got one of the new stainless Spinta's that looks great but have not tried it out yet. The chamber is not quite as generous as the JP's, but being stainless, it can be reamed. I played around with different SBR lengths and like the 10" best.
  7. Freedom Ordnance FX-9

    This is from their ad- "The upper and lower receiver are more than 1 inch shorter than a standard AR-15 upper and lower receiver making it more compact and lighter than a standard mil-spec AR-15 design." They show the bolt in the video. It looks....unique.
  8. Freedom Ordnance FX-9

    Looks like the upper, lower, and bolt are all proprietary and not the "standard" sizes that are usually seen. That would limit your upgrade/replacement choices. Good price though.
  9. 9mm pcc load update

    This. Internal case volumes vary greatly by manufacturer. Different case volumes will vary pressure. If you want precision, I'd start by using same headstamp brass for your testing.
  10. I've done extensive testing with powders in my PCC's and don't really notice any perceived recoil/dot bounce differences in fast powders vs slow powders so have settled on using fast powders for purely economic reasons. It takes me 30% more HS6 to make a given PF vs Titegroup. At one point, I hypothesized that the HS6 might make more gas to work the comp, but in testing I didn't notice a difference.
  11. Looking for better thumb safety

    I have the Radian Talon on both my guns and really like them. You can use it as a 90 or a 45 degree throw. 45 degree is much faster for me. They give you 4 different size levers so you can use the ones that fit you best. https://radianweapons.com/accessories/talon/talon-ambidextrous-safety-selector-4-lever-kit-ar15
  12. List of LRBHO that works

    I've got 2 of these. 14,000 rounds through one and 4,000 through the other. Been 100% for me, really like them. Right now they're on sale for $179. http://store.avguns.com/9mm-ar/9mm-ar-lower-receivers/gun-point-9mm-ar15-billet-m9-stripped-lower-receiver/
  13. QC10 Ejection Problems

    Got to be the ejector. Both my builds had the same issue until I tweaked the ejector just right. Both have been flawless since.
  14. I agree that we really need to be using PCC high hit factors, not Open. Hopefully, this will be implemented soon. As for the classifier system in general, it does a good job of measuring one's ability to stand and shoot classifiers. Sometimes that correlates with one's ability to shoot matches and sometimes it doesn't. I guess it's the best system that we can come up with.
  15. As with any other gun in any other division, it comes down to one thing. Lots of practice. My reloads started out at around 2 seconds. With countless hours of practice, I've got it down to where it's similar to my pistol reloads. Here's video of the classifier I shot last Saturday- El Pres. in 5.03 seconds, good for a 93%. Don't know the time on the reload, but I was happy with it. And I'm gonna keep practicing.
