  1. Claudio is generally the right guy to talk to there if you can get to him.
  2. Other than that it looks promising. I bet you could reinforce the bottom compartment like ced/daa does (looks like they use some heavy corrugated plastic formed into a hoop) i think one of the earlier style backpack style bags I had used a u shaped piece of plastic to make it more rigid (maybe that was an old style ced (can't remember.) Thanks for sharing your impressions.
  3. Check with NROI on that.. I think the interpretation is that for decocker guns wherever the gun decocks the hammer to is fully down.
  4. Yep that's my method as well. Having seen a couple of ejector fire incidents up close as an RO and a shooter I prefer this approach.
  5. +1 regardless of timer/RO the competitor is responsible for making sure his score /time is accurate.
  6. From what I understand from some reading around rocket nozzle physics, the angle of the of the cone shape that the port makes (15 degree included angle) and the area of the exit port matters. The rib lets you do that. My understanding is that the guy who originally designed this barrel setup used to work in aerospace. I think that's a consideration as well. http://www.braeunig.us/space/propuls.htm is interesting (but a little dense)
  7. Yea... Not the best installment.
  8. I think as time goes by the brass will get more expensive but unavailable, no... The FBI dropped 10mm years ago and yes 10mm brass costs more than it did when I could get 1x fired but I can still get it from several sources to feed my single stack gun. Too many 40 pistols have been sold for it to disappear.
  9. So I was curious enough to look it up... The current world Open record for the main match is 74.84 shot by Max (2016). Max also held the previous CO record at 81.38 (2018). So this year in the main match BJ set a new CO record at 75.37. (Max was at 81.21 in CO and 82.60 in Open ) So short of doing hard core data analytics what I can say is the world record time for CO dropped by about 8% and it is less than 1% slower than the open record.
  10. Be curious to see the open world record times (maybe held by Max/Bj?) against their CO times this year? To see what the comparison is between Max's max CO effort and max open effort. (trying to find a common yard stick to judge the OP's conjecture against.)
  11. They could cut the entire back of it past the dot module off and put modern electronics in it probably increase the battery life by 100x... But that would require new injection molds and design work that would have to be paid for in cost savings or increased price. Betting they have decided its not worth it.
  12. Dpp 7moa triangle. I like the dpp with the small dot but having had and tried both sizes, the bigger dot works better for me on the clock (easier to track) That is a similar conclusion I had come to for optics on my open guns as well. Started out with like a 4moa cmore dot module. After a number of years I settled on 8moa dot modules.
  13. You could always measure them to make sure some thing isn't really off. But, when I am fortunate enough to get a fit that tight I heat the receiver gently and cool the barrel and tap them together exactly as you describe. I usually only bother with bearing retaining compound (green loctite) when the fit is loose.
  14. Curious about the basepad on your mag?
  15. Cool i guess that's what I'd have expected.. the 308 ptr I have has been a good gun. Yea hks rifles aren't notorious for wonderful triggers are they? I keep hoping with more clones on the market someone will offer a better after market trigger for them. It's not as if it can't be done, I have a PSG1 trigger pack I picked up that I use in my PTR and my Hk94 which is really good. Shame no one reproduces those.
