Going to try revolver shooting the year and I just purchased a new 627PC for shooting steel matches. Ive read tons of good information on this forum already. The question I still have is what would be expected DA trigger pull weight with the stock spurred hammer without lightening it? Could you still get in the 6.5 to 7lb range? Most of the information I read is using a lighter hammer or they don't mention in the thread one way or the other. Thanks!
its a Daniel defense 1 o'clock so I think it's a good mount everything seems tight, but the dot sets to tall on this mount. with the gun at an angle where the dot is level it sets 2-3 inches right of bore axis. and doesn't have the windage adjust to bring dot to center, been looking at the trijicon 45 deg as it is lower than the DD mount just hoping this works.
There's no simple answer to this, and diameter might not be as important as we think. What does seem to matter is which specific bullet you select. Generally, flat nose bullets (Flat nose and hollow point) bullet are more accurate than round nose bullets, so that's where I'd start. Bullets that tend to shoot well include Hornady HAP bullets, with their 125 grain .356 bullets one of the most reliably accurate. Zero 115 JHP, the conical nose version, also tends to be extremely accurate. Hornady's 147 XTP also stands out. A less expensive bullet to try would be RMR's 124 FMJ FP Match Winner. Then you need to match them with the right powder. In 9mm, Power Pistol does really well, as does A#7 and Silhouette. Sport Pistol seems to work well with some loads too. There are probably others.
Just got insights to some of the additional upgrades; - DPM recoil reduction - Grams follower in Mec-car magazines - Fiber sight front - Sear leaver and hammer just replaced - Small frame - Serial number N02837 (but I cant find anything on Google based on that number) - It was bought second hand in 2015 but was a new at that time, hardly used.

I have some 308 Pmags and picked up a couple of Taran tactical base pads. They are machined differently from the 223 Pmag base pads and don'come back off like the 223 ones do. Is there a specific trick to taking the base pad off of a 308 Pmag so that the mag can be cleaned? I searched, but didn't see where it had been addressed before. Hurley
Aftermarket safeties, mag releases, triggers and hammers are legal now for both CO and Production. Did you read an old rulebook from prior to the spring of 2018? Specifically approved in the CO Appendix D rules under minor exterior modifications. Think it’s something like 21.6.
Depends how you do them. And maybe if you use higher quality German steel instead of Italian pot metal? My PPQ slide lost three full ounces on the nose. Haven’t cracked it. Yet. Although... (1) Walther slides are also insanely thick (2) Mark at L&M Precision did agreat job of radiusing all the corners to prevent possible stress risers. Even after stuffing the frame full of 6oz of tungsten, the gun weighs 25.9oz. Slide with dot is nearly half of that, at 10.8oz. It shoots flat as heck, but it sure isn’t soft.
Adding to this, the magazines are visually very different. Small frame guns use magazines identical to CZ Shadows, which you’re probably familiar with. Large frame guns use a much longer & slightly wider mag which will fit the lengthy 10mm cartridge - the large frames exist so that .45 and 10mm can fit in the gun. They’re fatter than Glock magazines. 9mm large frame magazines have a spacer up the inside of the back to keep the rounds positioned forward. So a quick handling of the magazines, or even a photo of the gun with it’s mags should tell you indisputably. @johnbu can usually tell from photos if it’s large or small frame based upon the grip screw location, but I do not have that gift. Also... contrary to the names, large frame and small frame guns have nearly identical exterior dimensions. They feel pretty much the same in the hand. They just require different magazines and grip panels.
i never did carts til i started 3 gun. then, since i have one, nice to use for uspsa etc. nice having your crap off the ground, not taking space up on a loading table, etc. in no way do i equate cart = weenie. easy and smart certainly doesn't mean weak. Me too. I take my cart to all matches that I can drive to with it. So convenient to be able to have everything I might need, and not have to go to the truck to retrieve. I still think It should be mandatory that everyone has a chair. Be a lot less wore out people at the end when it's time to tear down, and they're sneaking off.
Ive had a Venom. Didn't like it nearly as much at the Viper. Venom has a multi-piece housing and the viper being one piece. If you're gonna beat the crap out of it.. it's hard to beat the RMR. The shape of the housing has it leaps and bounds above everyone else for impact resistance. It does have the smallest window of them all... so until you have lots of reps on it.. its learning curve for dot presentation will be higher. Personally.. I find the blue lens tint and very slight magnification (like 1.05x) of the RMR distracting... so if something like that Viper isn't in consideration, I'd go DPP
