  1. Past hour
  2. I've had my 617 with a full Apex work-over, (including the hammer) for about 4 years now. Works like a champ with any ammo. It's my favorite revolver to shoot. Jeff O- Give the Thunderbolt to someone you don't like.
  3. I fly to a lot of matches and space is a premium. Does anyone know of a could takedown squib rod.
  4. I'll have to disagree with you,Gentlemen. It seems to be more of an ergonomic issue than the intrinsic accuracy of the gun. I can't shoot a Glock for crap. Nothing wrong with the Glock. It just doesn't fit me properly. ClayBuster, I hope it works out for you. Maybe a grip panel change would help.
  5. I used the DAA for 9mm ok Lyman M-die good But the Lee universal expander used with NOE expander screw in “expanders” (multitude of different sizes) was the best. Due to selection to fine tune. I have even gone bigger and chucked them in a drill and sanded them down to get what I want. Plus they are 6 bucks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. N330 is the bomb, for sure. Years ago when I was getting into reloading 9mm I got my hands one some to work up some loads and fell in love. Problem was when I went to make a big order you couldn’t find the stuff. I’ve since gone on to use several other powders, including N320, which while excellent, isn’t as good as N330 IMHO. I haven’t shot much NRA Action Pistol stuff but from the little I know about it, lighter bullets driven pretty fast do tend to give the best accuracy results. When I was messing around with it I was shooting 124/125gr jhp at around 140-145pf to get the kind of accuracy I was looking for. I was told by someone with more experience in that game that I should try 115gr bullets, but I didn’t mess around with it long enough to give them a try.
  7. What you have to be aware of. p09 lower side cut out. p10c with ambi mag catch- center notch p10 F, P10 c, P10S with reversible mag catch- has second notch on side. unless you know what looking for. Just go for the P10 listings
  8. My experience with the upgraded triggers has been good. The ones I’ve felt have been very nice, with some of them breaking in the 4# range. I bought two X5s before the big “drop gun, go bang” frenzy and have not upgraded either. Two reasons for that are that I, like yourself, like the trigger the way it is, and two, I love the click when dry firing and don’t want to give that up. I have since bought a recently built X5 (upgraded) for the sole purpose of being able to put a Grayguns trigger kit in it. The trigger out of the box is excellent, and breaks at about 4.5# before I’ve even put any rounds through it. Honestly, I may not even mess with it. I guess it depends on how light you like your triggers. I hard prep the trigger, so a little weight on a trigger isn’t a bad thing for me. The 2nd gen Grayguns trigger kit I have in another upgraded P320 breaks at just under 3#. It’s awesome, but it takes some adjustment because I’m used to hard prepping a 4-5# trigger. So, all that being said, I’d just buy another X5 and put the Grayguns kit in that one, and leave the one you have with the nice trigger as it is.
  9. pcs352 just got home and looked there isn't a part number on my holster or on the bag it came in. Must be top secret info. Glad to help, it was kind of a PITA to track down when I was looking to order one. Safariland could probably sell a lot more holsters if their finder was a little more user friendly.
  10. Hi All, I record my dry fire and live fire par times with an android app called "Dry Fire Par Timer" found here -> https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.csl1911a1.dryfirepartimer&hl=en_US I wanted a way to graph the par times for each drill over time and was also looking to learn python so I took this opportunity to write my first python application. To use it copy the the "Dry Fire Par Timer" apps database ( dryfire.db ) to your computer and open it with this python application. I tested it in Linux ( Fedora 29 ) and Windows 10. I'm sure there are some bugs and it's It's not great, just something I did with my spare time.

  11. Same mount pattern as an RTS2 or Vortex Razor, I used one last season on my Carry Optics gun and now have it mounted on my Open gun.
  12. Thanks for posting your VR80 videos. I plan to be getting one soon. Where did you get the belt clips for the HI-cap mags?


    I'm an aging open class 3 gunner, do you think buying the comp is worth it? How much gas comes out the top port (Obstruct your target view)?



    The AT website doesnt post its price since they are currently sold out.

  13. This [emoji1318] Especially if you are using 9MM with mixed range brass. They are hands down the best expanders for pistol cases if you are using a case activated powder drop. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. In the process of acquiring a Sig MPX PCC(don't have the gun yet), thinking of changing the charging handle. Are these two compatible with the new MPX PCC model? Which one do you guys prefer for competition the Next Level Armament or the Radian Weapons Raptor? How is one better than the other? Also the new MPX PCC charging handle looks like it has been redesign compared to the Gen2, anybody running this on competition? Is it worth it to change them? or are they good to go? Thanks.

  16. Hey Guys, my name is Jacob. Been shooting USPSA for about a year and a half now. New to the forum to try and expound my information base on the sport, gear and guns. I absolutely love guns, so please enamour me with your toys! Competative shooting has always been a dream of mine, as I grew up watching shows that featured JJ Racaza and Jerry Miculek. I also reload which is how I've been able to sustain myself in the sport. I run a G34 gen 3 in limited, supported by a Red Hill Tactical holster and mag carriers.
  17. Today
  18. I have the same issue with that spot. Trying to get over it by tweaking my grip slightly. If that doesn’t do it, I’ll go back to my other guns which would be a shame because I like everything else about the X5. I asked phil strader about it at shot. He said the xcompact doesn’t have it but there are no plans to get rid of it on the other models because there are very few complaints about it. He said it’s a cosmetic thing to make the high bore axis look less extreme.
  19. See a doctor that specializes in hands/ arms.
  20. This gets you to 21 for $35 http://gregcotellc.com/cart/cz-factory-mecgar-actmag-c-173/cz-p09-9mm-21-rd-magazine-with-polymer-2-adapter-cz-11623-p-1705.html
  21. Your stance is dominated by quadricep and hamstring strength. Squats will help with both. Starting with kettlebell or dumbbell goblet squats will help you learn what it feels like to keep your weight forward of midline.
  22. Never relax a grip. Control comes from a tight strong grip. Remove the area of concern
  23. I really would like to get a pair of these, but the only thing that's stopping me is that they don't look like they will fit under a pair of muffs without messing up the seal. Can anyone chime in on this? Edit: I see the post further up saying that they don't really work with muffs. That's too bad. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  24. Howdy Steven! My name is Jacob. I've been shooting uspsa for about a yr and a half now. Using a G34 gen 3 in limited. How do you like that x5?
  25. If you "direct mount" it, does it match - screw hole wise - any other red dot sight ???
  26. Yep Tim and I have been discussing things for awhile now. We will see what he comes up with! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  27. Their the same body tube and have the extra center cut for the p10c. i think current production of p07-9-10 s c f all have to same cut so they are compatible.
