  1. All my PSA metalform mags will surface rust if I don't wipe them down with a light oil after each outing. If I use a mag in practice or a match it will show signs of rust shortly after. The ones I don't handle when shooting will go longer but will still eventually surface rust.
  2. +1 on the Ghost 360 mags, they work well on several types of double stack mags.
  3. I have been running a KAK bottom load block for over a year now in my SBR multi cal lower. I run the lower as a SBR for 5.56, 300blk and 9mm. Since I have gotten the block it runs 9mm most of the time. I use a 8.5 in 9mm upper for 3 Gun, Steel Challenge and USPSA. The only issues I have had so far is one bad metalform mag out of the 10 I have. It would not feed consistently so I used it for the bottom end on a taccom spliced 66 rd mag. I use a press on 3d printed mag funnel that bmiller makes and have no issues getting fast reloads now.
  4. Anyone have the Burris AR-1X

    I have one sitting in the safe not being used if anyone is looking for one.
  5. Limiting Bolt Travel

    The cons on limiting the travel is as stated the bolt won't lock back and when you tune the travel to a load you stand the risk of not resetting the trigger if you experience a slightly underpowered load.
  6. Best 3 Gun PCC Bullet and Load?

    Depends on what load you want. For sub-minor loads out of my 8.5 in barrel 3.0 gr. titegroup gets me 105pf with the 98gr. For loads that make minor you need to be in the 4.0gr range with titegroup. I like titegroup for this load since it is a small charge and the times I have tried slower powders (HS6, CFE and WAC) to make gas they have been more harsh for the same power factor.
  7. Best 3 Gun PCC Bullet and Load?

    I use .356 on coated bullets, haven't had one tumble yet.
  8. Best 3 Gun PCC Bullet and Load?

    The eggleston 98gr coated work great for 50 yards and in. I haven't tried taking them out to 100 yards. They are cheap and accurate and I have run them all the way down to 105pf for steel matches. They shoot soft and the PCC doesn't feel sluggish cycling. Anyone wanting to give them a try use my code EM-WIKEL for a discount.
  9. A5 lifter tuning

    I tried the taccom stick on lifter extension. The A5 lifter is not flat enough for it to stick. Also there are several cut outs on the lifter that require the same cuts on the extension. I spent a good amount of time fitting it to throw it in the trash. It may be a viable option for some lifters but the A5 isn t one of them.
  10. A5 lifter tuning

    It may take adjusting the lifter and putting a slight chamfer on the Yoplait of the chamber. Just tweaking the lifter may affect feeding.
  11. A5 lifter tuning

    Is the bolt locked back when this happens and it's in auto loading condition?
  12. PCC AR 9mm barrel makers?

    Once you try cutting on a nitride coated barrel you may change your thought process.
  13. Drum Mag

    Drums don't make sense for colt or glock mags when you can splice 2 mags together with the taccom system. It is much more economical and has the same or more capacity.
  14. Short base pads for Colt mags?

    BSPS is offering a base pad cover that appears to be 3D printed. It slips over the mag and base OEM base plate and could be a good option for 20 rd mags for reloading on the clock. http://benstoegerproshop.com/colt-smg-basepad-cover/
