  1. why are S&B primers so cheap ?

    I've shot about 25k S&B mostly SPP but at least 5k LPP. I would buy more for sure. As good as any I've bought Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Thumb Rest

    I started with an RHT on my open gun, but tried a Go-Guns gaspedal on my limited gun and found it to be perfect. I replaced the RHT on the open gun with go-gun Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. MBX 2011 mags

    Don't spend more of your money just yet. Even the best companies can have a lemon slip through the door. Call sti and talk to a person. I had my comp crack on my dvc and they were very good to deal with. I'd rather not have had the issue, but shit happens. Before you abandon ship at least talk to them about it and see what can be done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. MBX 2011 mags

    If the mags won't even seat in the gun when empty than there is something wrong with the dimensions of the magazines or the grip.. and if you've tried multiple mags then I would have to guess likely the grip. I notice a difference between my mbx mags and my stock sti mags. The sti mags actually seem to have more drag in the grip of the gun. They still drop free and insert and seat fine, but the mbx mags are just smoother, like they're ever so slightly smaller in outer dimensions. I also have a 9mm dvc open. I would try some other mags and if you still have an issue get in touch with sti. If other mags work then get in touch with mbx. Either company will make it right. Other than that, random forum speculation will just lengthen the amount of time until your stuff is running correctly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. MBX 2011 mags

    While the feeding is an issue for sure, the hard to seat part is not. Mine are exactly the same and they've run flawlessly for 6k plus rounds. I can load them fully but they're not reloadable at all. Take one round out and good to go. I'd say that pretty much all 2011 mags are gonna be the same when you're maximizing capacity.

  6. Does Anyone Lube their .40 Casings

    I use Dillon lube on all my pistol cases. Not because it's necessarily better, just cause that's what I bought. It makes an immediately noticeable difference in how smooth the press operates. I will always use case lube. I fill up a large plastic bag with a hopper full of brass. Spray a light coating over the visible brass then seal the bag and shake it all up for a bit to make sure it's all spread around. Then it goes right in the case feeder.

  7. Hammner follow situation

    I had a new Edge recently that would hammer follow frequently (at least once per mag, sometimes more). Took to my gunsmith and he found out the hammer hooks were below min spec for length and no amount of sear spring adjustments would make it right. Replaced the hammer and gun is perfect. Just something to keep in mind. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Definitely, or another option is to switch to a micro dot. I scrapped the C-more and went with a Leupold Deltapoint Pro in a cheely mount and have had zero issues with ejection. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    I have a dvc 9mm. It's my first and only open gun, so my experience is not extensive. I'm very happy with it. I have primarily shot 7.0 gr of AC under a coated lead 125 (about 6,000 rounds). Recently I tried some 115gr MG JHPs and bumped the charge to 7.5. Gun stayed flatter and I thought it was a big improvement! Ive got to assume that additional dose of gas helped the comp work a little better off as it should. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. New 2011 need opinions

    As long as no comp, or red dot You're good to go in USPSA limited. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Absolutely. I wanted aggressive and I got it. Paired with VZ Diamondback grips this thing stays put. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Cree Custom Guns I've got a custom gun built by Andy Cree and the checkering is excellent! Search for him on FB or email at creecustomguns@gmail.com Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Better Value than DVC Open?

    Yes I agree totally. At this point I'll chalk it up to one of many unknown variables. If the repaired gun goes down again in the next 5-10,000 rounds I'll probably change my tune, but for now I'll take this in stride and cross my fingers that the repair turn around time is less than they quoted.

  14. Better Value than DVC Open?

    Sti dvc 9mm. I've been VERY happy with mine. At 5200 rounds the barrel/comp cracked at the first port. That sucks, and sti has it now for repair. Other than that the gun ran perfect for all 5200 rounds. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. SNS 125 Grain Conical Nose experience

    I shot a lot of those last year in my S2. Loaded to the same 1.09" as I had been for a CZ and it ran great. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
