  1. JP applies the coupon first, gives you the invoice then you can pay off the discounted balance with the gift cert.
  2. Yes they did that for me. Don't forget that if you pay by check up front you get free shipping.
  3. @nick954 thanks for sharing the pics.. what brand pistol grips are those 3? The middle one looks particularly interesting.
  4. Keep em coming.. that bomber shark nose art is an awesome touch!! : )
  5. Keep in mind that not all places in the world accept returns. We are very fortunate in the USA, yet it's taken for granted. That being said, as mentioned, its a free market - if its stated up front, then its fair.
  6. I have not tried PWS but with a QC10 and Spartan (New Frontier) lower, the complete JP upper works fine. In my observation there's nothing really particular with upper assemblies. All the dimensional distinctions are designed into the lower.
  7. It is probably because as designed it holds less than 10 rounds (or Glock did not submit it for review because of its <10 round capacity). Case in point, the Glock 36 which holds less than 10 rounds is not on the list as well but the 21 is. For the record I do think its commendable you want to try to run with your carry gun. Shooting your 43 with extended mag in limited 10 is a good alternative, and it gives you the added option of using an appendix holster if you carry this way.
  8. The gunsite low mount thumb safety is the OG safety of that style. As it's dated, it may have fallen out of favour. A quick search turned up with this one from Wilson. Its hard to tell from the pics how it compares to the Gunsite, so you may need to do more research.. but its a start. I have no experience with the Wilson. https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1070110216 Also here's a sleazy looking classified ad.. who knows.. its worth a shot in the dark. : ) https://www.gunsinternational.com/guns-for-sale-online/gun-parts-accessories/gun-parts-1911/gunsite-low-thumb-safety-40-pre-owned-41-.cfm?gun_id=101085950
  9. The shorter handguard takes some getting used to, again... It feels like 2006 all over again : ) In my excitement I bought a 10" handguard before I got the barrel, only to find it was a bit too long, but I like the chopped up hot rod look of it now.
  10. Thanks for the note and feedback. Yes TACCOM milled the top interface on my old JP GMR bolt for free and it was a quick turnaround. Really looking forward to put this new barrel through its paces.
  11. TACCOM's barrels are great, all at an excellent no frills price that is easily half of competitors. Can't beat that from an outfit that pretty much is often imitated. Their new super feed barrels are even greater. Plus, TACCOM has excellent customer service to boot. You won't regret it.
  12. So... I had an older thread on here where I was whining that I could not get my QC10 lower & multiple uppers to run with JHP. It seemed like the only setup that would run Jacketed Hollow Point ammo was a complete JP GMR setup. https://forums.brianenos.com/topic/281811-jhp-reliability-on-pccs-share-your-build/ Executive summary: I bought @TRUBL (TACCOM's) 10/16 super feed barrel on launch day and it works with JHP! I am as happy as a clam after all the personal drama : ) https://taccom3g.com/product/1016-super-feed-barrel-9mm/ If you run round nose then this may not be a big deal, but if you run JHP do give this bad boy a try. Bedtime story: So in response to my old thread asking for advice, I was going to wait for Shooting Innovations to get back from SHOT SHOW (and maybe a coupon), but in the meantime I was talking to TACCOM to inquire about their comped shrouds and what length I should buy to make a 10" barrel legal (aka. non NFA). I kicked the tire for a few days bugging and harassing Tim (Tim is always a good sport and treats me right.) I am glad I did wait a few days because the day I was about to pull the trigger, Tim releases his 10/16 super feed barrel like he read my mind : ). It was exactly what I wanted. I paid for this barrel and did not get any compensation or special deal of any kind in exchange for a favourable review. I was also not asked for a review at any time. I DID get great service but that is standard for TACCOM. On his website he makes this claim. The Multi angle PATENT PENDING extreme feed ramp will allow the use of hollow point ammunition and support the front of the glock magazine. I lifted an eyebrow on this one. Pretty bold claim in my experience since I was tearing my hair out in the past. I have had Tim's previous (wide fan shaped) extreme feed barrel, and have had issues ranging from the bullet getting stuck just above the feed ramp or a 45 degree jam where the bullet would get stuck on the top of the chamber. If I did not get a jam on the first round, I couldn't get through ten rounds without experiencing a bottom or top of chamber jam (the bullet never made it into the chamber at all). To be completely fair, I had 45 degree jams (top of chamber) jams even with complete JP uppers. So Tim has this new out of the box device TOP RAMP design. Mad science stuff. OK sure... I was willing to try it and I trusted Tim. The new barrel seems to have a new (lower) feed ramp design. Hand polished, less wide, less flared, and seems like a different angle?? Almost looks like their original (narrow) ramped barrel with the exception that you do not need to chamfer the bottom part of your bolt. Note: The top of your bolt needs to be milled out in order to interface with the top ramp. My build is as follows: QC10 lower, Hiperfire 24C trigger, QC10 upper, 10/16 TACCOM barrel, original JP GMR13 bolt, cheap ass handguard. Note on handguard: measurement from front face of upper reciever to the back of the first comp port is 9.25". So a 9" handguard is ideal unless you want to cut your handguard. Initial Buffer system: Wave spring, delrin spacer (length is $2 worth of quarters), JP 308 carbine spring & Blitzkrieg buffer. (I tried it with the extreme short stroke setup that runs with my JP GMR 13.) The bullets cleared the ramp but I got jams on the top of the chamber as per usual, however it seemed that the top "super feed ramp" did some work and it was able to force more of the bullet in the chamber but not enough. In the past it did not make it in the chamber, but this time it did, but not enough). Instead of a 45 degree jam, I'd say 20 degree jam? It was doing a bit better than before but still jammed. Being frustrated and defeated again, I was about to turn it in, but the RO who ran me mentioned "It seems as if there isn't enough time for the bullet to go into battery and its getting stuck." I was kind of stunned at the comment and I never would have thought of it. So, I modified my setup. Changed Buffer system: Wave spring, 2 quarters, JP 308 carbine spring & Blitzkrieg buffer. Result = I ran the barrel with 500 rounds and only had one 45 degree jam. I dunno what that was all about, and I felt irked about it but frankly I was overjoyed. Compared to the past this setup really ran well! I was very very happy to finally put this beast to rest. I had regretted buying a QC10 project lower and was frustrated I could not get it to work with JHP but all is well now. Now that I know it runs I will test to see just how much I can short stroke it by adding more quarters. I use Precision Delta 115 gr JHP. I typically load it to 1.115". I did notice that in cycling live rounds, rounds that measured 1.120" OAL would get stuck in the chamber and hard to eject. In live fire it did not seem to be an issue. The barrel is accurate. I shot at steel at 20 yards and the bullets were in a nice cloverleaf from an impromptu rest. I have not tested the effectiveness of the comp. My support hand index finger is filthy tho. The guys at the club were really digging this new barrel and asked where to order it, I for one am happy it runs with JHP. It's like a heavy load off my shoulders. THANK YOU! Thanks Tim for taking care of me, always!
  13. If you are not married to the Hiperfire, I am willing to guess a JP trigger will fix your situation. If not, hopefully one of the fixes will help you. I have had personal experience or at least a local shooting pal has with the disconnector spring & recoil assembly issue causing the Hiperfire to double. What is baffling me is your feeding. In my case I had an issue with jamming only with a longer (short stroked) buffer system, not a shorter one.. seems like you have the reverse? You can try to make your 4 weight system all tungsten? However, you really have to choose if you want to short stroke or not before you try to play musical chairs needlessly.
  14. I can understand if you want to stick with the Hiperfire and make it work. I've been there. Try disassembling the Hiperfire. Have read issues of junk getting in there and messing it up, and also the possibility of a mangled disconnector spring. If that does not solve the issue, then try to see if you can borrow another buffer system from a friend.
  15. Thanks for the tips. I will look up the FX-9. As for the spring, I did try a 223 carbine spring instead of the 308 and it was the same result sadly. I do appreciate the idea but it did not work for me. I did buy a new barrel and will try my own build with a QC10 stripped upper I have in hand this weekend. From eyeballing it I think the QC10 upper is dimensionaly the same as the standard JP upper receiver (or any upper for that matter) but am crossing my fingers.
