  1. Yea but any time it starts with 50 it's still a questionable decision
  2. Yep ink up the top of the guide rod head with a sharpie marker and try cycling it and see if you can see something rubbing. Also make sure the head of the guiderod is a good fit in the frame.
  3. If you like it, buy one shoot it and enjoy it. But it's not a competitive open gun for uspsa use by any definition. So if that's your interest that money can be used a lot better in other directions. Your best bet would be to find some open shooters at a local match and talk to them and ask to try their guns.
  4. Ding ding ding... Some 9mm guns will run whatever... Most won't. I've shot 9mm major since they made it practical and( shot 38sc and super before that.) If you run single headstamp once fired 9mm (the advice I got from my gunsmith when I started this) that your gun is tuned for... I doubt you'd notice much difference in reliability.
  5. I had/have one of the first batch of the 170mm mbx mags for the Caspian frame. It seemed like a nice product and fit my second gen frame fine. However I was never able to get it to work in my gun... The same gun ran weldups made for me by Jim Anglin and Fred Craig with no problems. I suspect it could be tuned to work I just didn't bother at the time since I didn't need to. I have a gun built on a first gen frame (round trigger guard) if I can find the mag and remember I can at least try test fit for you if that's helpful? I use MBX mags in my STIs and they have generally been f
  6. Yep people have been building guns with island barrels/hybrid ribs for years.. As long as the parts are of good quality and its fit right there's no problem. (one of my old open guns had a 4 port hybrid in it and that slide lasted for well over 100k rounds of major ammo)
  7. Deleted as the response above is better than what I wrote
  8. Yea and a better trigger too than an MP-5 (with few exceptions H&K rifle triggers stink)
  9. I wonder if it's similar(related to?) to the gun Angstadt Arms was teasing last year. (https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2020/01/07/angstadt-unveils-mdp-9/) As an H&Kite I'll be curious to see the actual bolt and how the rollers/locking piece works in the JP gun.
  10. There are 3 springs that matter... One is what tensions the ball bearing detent that stops the disk in a particular spot. The one that pushes back out the arm that indexes the primer disk... The other is the wave spring/washer that is on the shaft that the primer disk rotates on. If cleaning the whole thing doesn't fix it changing, one or all of those springs usually does it for me. I have sometimes also had the indexing arm get bent which needs a swap or straightening in a vise . This is a good reason to have a dillon parts kit handy, so you have parts to swap, then when you find the cul
  11. Honesty at this point your best bet is to select the option on your phones browser (if it supports it) to request the desktop version of the site. It's not as nice to look at as the phone optimized site but it allows full functionality (on an android device, not sure about iPhone)
  12. Maybe see if you can source a box of 9mm nato and see if that gives enough PF to make it cycle.
  13. I have had both of them. They each have their good and bad points. I think the materials in the safariland are better (particularly the zippers) I like certain points of the safariland design better as well (the pouch in the back is well sized to take my open gun for instance) .. What I like better about the DAA bag is that it holds its shape and structure better (due to stiffer inserts I guess) and is a little easier to work out of during the match to me. They are both quality products but based on a little more than a season on the safariland bag (my previous 2 bags were DAA) I think it w
