Thanks for all these thoughts, I appreciate it. I see the logic of going with a gun that I know fits well in my hand and takes ammo I make already....Since I'm new to open, maybe jumping in with one foot first is wise. maybe I'll try a Czechmate in Minor first and if the hook sets, I can always branch out and upgrade to a 2011 style in Major or try loading 9 major. I've made probably 300k 9mm rounds over the years so maybe that's the best first entry.... Q
Awesome and highly recommended. Smooth draw and great retention
I would allow a competitor to switch. This also brings up something I heard at a match awhile back about someone shooting a Glock in Limited Major. The Glock broke. Someone offered to let the shooter use a 2011 to finish the match, in the same division and PF. MD said no, because the 2011 offered some mystical “competitive advantage”. So, where does one draw that line?
Take all that aftermarket junk off and then I bet it'll work . Then after this match you can try adding those parts back on 1 at a time testing each, until the gun stops working and you can ID which aftermarket part was causing the malfunctions.
I shot it with my 135 grain 146 power factor coated Bayou bullets, and with Howard's 100 grain plated...perception wise, I can hold A hits at 25yd double taps with very little effort.... watching Howard shoot, there was virtually no observed recoil... had a very consistent ejection pattern with the plunger ejector in the bolt....there is an option to add additional weight to the carrier and probably a little room for playing with the internal bolt spring
I've decided to just never, ever, click on those ads on other arms selling sites or read them any further. I hope you'll join me.

What load did you test with? One of the guys at the range has a Banshee and i took it for a test run of the box new it ran but the feel was strange did not have enough time to determine if that was good strange or just strange interested to see your version. The one I fondled was a pistol so that may have contributed to the strange part.
Visually? Legion has a cut in the barrel for the Loaded chamber indicator, the color, and the rear sight plate. The Legion slide has the legion logo on the plate. The Legion also has a larger optics cut to account for the Deltapoint and Romeo 1 pro. I guess you could argue that you were using all Sig factory parts "on" a production gun.
New 126mm Gen 2 mag, factory spring/follow/pad, came new with a new gun. The Mag has repeatedly looked like a Pez dispenser with a stuck follower and loose rounds. Other factory mag does not do this with new gun . Any suggestions?
Does your slide lock to the rear when you fire your last shot? If not, and I'm guessing from the pics, your slide is not going fully to the rear, or it is cycling too quickly to allow the next round to fully rise up before the slide slams forward. I wouldn't think that a 15# recoil spring would cause that, but perhaps your recoil spring rod is preventing full slide cycling, or the recoil spring is too long (or too strong). Try an OEM recoil spring and rod and see if your problem goes away.
