    40sw open comp

    As promised!!! Finally getting into Open with a 40! Muchos gracias mi amigo Robbie Wheaton for making my dreams come true! Was looking to work on a backup but the forums minders didn’t like those efforts. Will keep up efforts with this little beauty. Hopefully a range report will happen if work and kids permit the time. Yeee hawwww!!

    Glock 45 Carry Optics

    Once it hits the Production approved list may very well be a good reason to play around in CO a bit more.

    JP GMR15 mags

    Magpuls seem to run good thou I had one fail. It failed also in a pistol so probably the mag. Glock mags run best, especially with the MBX extensions that I use. Sanding the upper section slightly with fine grit sand paper seems to help with the “drop free” problem that occurs. ETS I haven’t tried as they were so hit and miss years ago have never invested in them but have seen (not experienced) better results as of recent.

    Glock 45 Carry Optics

    Not sure what the G45 slide weighs but killing for the optic would loose some weight. Just sure if enough. Optimum weight on an open gun slide is around 10oz. The use of a tungsten rod would bring the reciprocating weight (felt anyway) even lower as more weight is stationary in the hand. 130ish powerfactor should be easy as velocity loss from a 34 length barrel to a 19 length is minimal. I would wager if it makes 130 in a 34 it would still easily make minor (above 125) in a 45. When I pick up my open gun from Wheaton Arms I am going to run it by him to see if he agrees.

    Glock 45 Carry Optics

    Amazed I couldn’t find this idea already broached. I know it might take a while for the production qualification part f CO BUT... How does this idea sound? Glock 45 with a lightened slide and milled for your sight of choice? Sight length means nothing in CO. Slide is already down to G19 weight so lightning would be minimal. Full length frame for grip and stippled/undercut to your desire. If anyone makes a tungsten guide rod it would make a nice nimble package for minor rounds. Am I off my rocker on this or did my Black Rifle Coffee do too much damage again?
  6. I have built one very similar. No ports in the island but with minor I doubt it makes a difference. Only played with it so far but hope to shoot in a match next weekendZ
  7. Tony has a point. Much of the previous criticism of IDPA was the hours long gun checks it took to shoot bigger matches. I can also say from shooting IDPA and NRA TPC that it is difficult at best to appease rule sets that are enforced with old scales or an inexperienced human enforcers. Some of the ideas you have are on interesting but the implementation would be problematic. Not that many of the ones now aren’t but I guess that is the innate problem of rule sets. I started this thread as I am seeing the advancement in what is “duty issue” that has occurred in recent years and how many of even novice or new shooting sports entrants have headed that advancement. That and my aging eyes I must admit. Keep up the thinking it only drives the sport and don’t be deterred by nay sayers whose first inclination is to act snarky.

    PCC or magwell adapter for 2011 mags?

    Yea the reorg is what concerns me. Not for only the company and its employees but how hard they are going with the issue. The one Pat had seemed to work just fine and one would think that if they let a guy with that much clout demo it for the world... Corp reorg’s are a pain I am sure so hope they get back on track. Wouldn’t be so worried if saw product available.

    40 Open

    ZZT is a wealth of knowledge on the issue. Helped me come up with ideas and supplied knowledge on my 40 Open build. Should have it in hand first week of June.
  10. If you can take $125 for both will send PayPal gift in morning when I wake up. Would need email obviously. Not trying to low ball. All I have on hand.  Thanks either way.

    Update us on the Typhoon testing. Getting a Dissident but always like idea of backup and the Typhoon looks tempting.

    PCC or magwell adapter for 2011 mags?

    Pat Kelly did a video on the Nordic PCC and showed off the STI magwell. It’s developed they just don’t seem to be jumping to produce it. I have sent 3 emails over the last 9 months or so asking and none have been answered. Thinking of selling it as the original intent was a PCC that could use the same mags as my 3 Gun and Steel pistols.

    3 Gun Unlimited slide milling

    As an added crinkle to the issue and to get around some of the issues drewbeck brought up, is there an adapter plate anyone knows of for a 1911 slide? Fusion makes one for the RMR but I am not keen on taking things apart to change the battery. I have left messages with STI about the ones they use for HOST/Omni but haven’t heard back as of yet.

    Unlimited/Open Optic Choices

    Decided to split the difference as I got a good deal on a Trijicon AccuPower 1-8. sighted it in yesterday and am very impressed.
