    9 Major

    Yes 9mm major will work with a normal upright cmore mount. The easiest approach is change the barrel and see where you are. Then if you are having issues. Try following this http://www.brazoscustom.com/magart/ejection perfection.htm Brazos custom sells an ejector that's already tuned as described if you don't want to do it yourself. I prefer an aftec for an extractor but opinions on that vary. A normal extractor can be made to work just as well with tuning. I find using once fired, single headstamp brass (not hard to get or terribly expensive) makes the tuning process easier but commercial headstamp range brass can usually be made to work in most guns.
  2. I'm like zzt above I like 2 3/16th holes and a good effective 3 port comp with a powder that works the comp/ports and makes major (in my case silhouette)
  3. Mini red dots do make it easier, but truthfully it wasn't that hard to get it to work with a full sized cmore if you understand how to tune the extractor and ejector.
  4. Tom were those factory 40x repeater actions or converted single shot actions. I ask as i have a vintage 40x smallbore gun that might interest me more as a repeater.
  5. I've shot silhouette for years... Works fine for me.
  6. Yep i picked up a couple as well... will be interested to look them over and take some measurements. Given their reputation I expect good things.
  7. I think you are on to something Eric.
  8. Ehh the shorter the barrel the more likely you are to notice a benefit i guess. Probably running a medium or slower burn rate powder all other things equal would run the brake better. But if it was me I wouldn't spend big money on a pcc brake I think it's better to mess with tuning the springs and buffer setup for a blowback gun. But in the end only you and the timer know what works best for you.
  9. Yep that was pretty much my point.. it helps people understand the difference in magnitude of the forces at work.between the gas from a major load in a 5" barrel and the gas from a minor load in a 16" barrel.
  10. If you want a calibrating comparison try the same test on the comp of an open pistol running major.
  11. Good luck at GA. We'll catch up at some point. If you don't have it figured out by then I'll be glad to look at it for you/let you try some other mag setup variations.
  12. This is a common cause of nose dive feed malfs in 2011 guns... I check for it by pulling the slide off and inserting a loaded mag. First the round should not be touching the bottom of the ejector at all at rest. Then push the loaded round out of the mag. Look to make sure as the round slides out of the mag it doesn't touch the bottom of the ejector. Chalee's suggestion is also a good one I've seen issues with the ejector nose being too long with respect to where the round is released from the feed lips. Tolerance (in grips and mag release shelf height and ejector dimension) can cause mags that work in one gun to exhibit this problem in another gun. If you are going to be at Brocks gap (I think they are having a match in Sept?) I can let you try some of my sv mags to see if it makes any difference.
  13. Sorry... Been there done that... Got the pistol and the hearing damage to prove it (but God is that gun flat)
  14. Yea man no worries. I actually raised the casepro up enough with the mount that I could use the Dillon tube as it sits. But depending on how tall you are and your bench height that might or might not work for you. (but a tube connector shouldn't be hard)
