  1. Has anyone tried the new SVI grip?

    Same here. New convert to aggressive steel grip on 2011, LOVE IT. Not nearly as hand shredding as I thought it might be when I just handled a few before purchasing. I'm VERY happy with my purchase and adding one to a build currently. That said, these new textures look awesome.. not quite awesome enough for me to peel my hands off my aggressive grip and try one tho..
  2. Best Daylight Bright 3G Scope

    +1 for the Trijicon. The fiber optic aspect of the reticle is mega bright. I have 2 of the TR-24s but I think the newer version, TR-25 is a 1-6x. I have not owned more expensive optics but I was very impressed and happy with the glass on the Trijicons. Here’s a link to a great review of the tr-24 : Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. ACME Bullet Shipping Time

    I’ve only ordered once- 2 cases - from Acme and they shipped fast. Due to an error, mostly on my part, the packages got shipped to the wrong address. Acme has been great about fixing the issue and getting my order sent out correctly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Yes that would work. You could even have them on the same squad, so long as he name is different so you’re able to easily tell which scores go where Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. STI DVC Cracked Compensator

    Yes I would send it back. And you’re right they’ll replace it with a new barrel with a slightly different side port cut. This is a common crack, seems like the initial design was flawed. My gun cracked exactly like that after 5k rounds. Sti was great to work with and replaced it. My cracks were so hairline it didn’t seem like it would break anytime soon... but I was nervous to test it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. STI DVC Limited

    I just recently dealt with a warranty repair for a similar issue. I shipped my gun to STI on 8/16 and it was repaired and back at my local ups for pick up on 9/16. I hate to have any problems with a gun, but I understand it can happen. STI has been nothing but awesome in regards to fixing any issues I have found. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. Open Gun Design Questions

    Have you Shot your load out of a gun without holes? How much PF shift from a standard barrel to one with poppels? Just wondering if you have to crank up the load to work the extra ports. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. STI DVC Open gun ejection advice needed 9mm Major

    I've had 2 9mm DVC Opens now. First one was flawless till 5k and the comp cracked. 2nd one has had a few malfs but is pretty solid in about 4k. With my first gun before I fired a shot I replaced the optic with a DP pro on a cheely mount and added an aftec extractor. After that it was flawless. 2nd gun came with the same optic set up, taken from my 1st gun and put on the new one by STI. They left the factory extractor and so have I so far. Maybe that's why I've had a few malfunctions when the other one didn't but so far it runs well and I haven't been motivated to change it out. This is to say my gun was a decent gun, however, I read ahead and knew enough that the stock optic/mount set up was the primary cause of issues for ejection (or so it seems). I'm not sure why sti hasn't tried to go with an offset mount from the factory to avoid these issues completely. The cost of the offset cheely mount is $90, and you can sell off the stock mount for $50 in about 5 seconds. So for $40 I think you can make a serious step towards more reliable ejection.. Whether it's reasonable to have to put $40 into a 3700 gun to get it to run is another conversation... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.

  15. 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.
