  2. Think I would look at Kart. I am real pleased with the Kart Barrel in my 9mm Trojan.
  3. STI 2011 9mm slow cycling

    Have two Eagles and a Trojan in 9mm. Love um. All three have 15 pound recoil springs along with my 40 and 45 guns. Never had a light hit using Winchester Primers. Trojan has about 30.000 rounds with the same spring runs Great. Put the 10lb recoil spring back in or a 9lb along with 15lb main, Put a little Mobil 1 in there when you change the spring it will run.
  4. STI Magazine problems (9mm 130mm)

    Every STI 9mm magazine I have seen lately needs to have the feed lips tuned to run. Purchased a 9mm Eagle off Gunbroker, came with 10 magazines. All were out of speck. I'm sure that's why he soid the gun. Go on U Tube and watch the Atlas video on tuning magazines, not hard of send them to someone who can. Sad when we pay what we pay for STI mags and you have to work on them. By the way I am a fan of STI.
  5. 2011 Feeding Issues (9mm) - Help

    Have a Trojan and two 2011 9mm's mine like to run long 1.145 to 1.150 using a Lee Carbide sizing die. Check extractor tension then magazines every 9mm 2011 magazine I've seen lately have issues.
  6. 9mm Trojan jams???

    Run Wilson magazines in my Trojan but had to remove two coils from the base of the magazine spring, to much spring for a ten pound recoil spring
  7. 9mm Trojan jams???

    Without seeing the gun, mine was a little finicky when new. Check extractor. if it's to tight won't chamber, to loose won't extract. I throated the barrel quite a bit to get mine to run. It's had enough rounds put through it that I replaced the barrel a couple years beck. That barrel also had to be throated. Loading your on ammo? Mine like's an OAL around 1.150 to short stovepipes. If your not using a Lee sizing die try one. It sizes closer to the extractor groove and tighter than other brands. Seen several STI guns start running that didn't run by going to a Lee' sizing die. Don't care want the box says lube cases. Your working the brass pretty good with a Lee sizing die. I shoot bullets from 115gn up to 165gn with no issues now. Gun has run 100 percent after doing the above and has well over 30,000 round through it. Metal form is a good magazine and doubt that's a problem
  8. Best .40 dies on a 650? What do you use?

    Look good on ad I'll try some next Amazon Purchase. Have had a few break usually in 223. The pistol punch will work in 223 also
  9. Best .40 dies on a 650? What do you use?

    In 40 S@W i'd go with the U die it's under sized solves lots of problems with one pass through the press. Used in my 650 and 550 presses
  10. Wilson Combat 1911 Magazine Well & IDPA

    Use and like Wilson magazines, if the nine mags give you any problems remove two coils from the bottom of the magazine spring. I used them in my Trojan but my friend shooting Wilson guns had to do the same to his mags.
  11. Best .40 dies on a 650? What do you use?

    Lee Sizing die U die in 40, sizes closer to the extractor groove and tighter than other brands. Turn powder through die so a piece of sized brass slides on the belling die. I used a drill press and sandpaper then polished, while polishing, polish the inside of the powder through die, stops powder bridging. Lee seating die, had a flat insert made so it pushes on the nose of the bullet, keeps OAL tighter. Dillon crimp die set lightly. The first stage sizing die holds the bullet, crimp lets it chamber easier. Don't care for Lee's FCD if used it's only a light crimp at the case mouth. Feel accuracy suffers with FCD. Seen several S-I pistols start running that wouldn't run using a Dillon sizing die. May need to lock Lee's sizing die from under the tool head and use a strip of paper to set to shell plate the carbide ring is right at the case mouth and setting the die so it hits may crack the carbide ring. Lee's seating die has a knob on tope for slight adjustments. You can mark it with colored sharpies for varied bullets, Lee also has a well designed decapping punch, usually pushes up if there's something in the case. Might purchase a few spares just in case though. Lee's carbide die sets sell in the forty dollar range a Mid Way
