  1. Frontier 9mm 121gr FN Match CMJ are $112 per 1k here in Norway. Hornady 125gr HAP is over twice that. JHP about three times the Frontier. So most in Open use plated. I used to own a Bedell shorty in 38 super and used plated with the usual VV powders with 3N38 and N105 as VV favorites. Also used Vectan SP2 with good results. Never had a real problem with bullets or accuracy. Sure, not as good as the HAP but we seem to manage Although since we have to use 120gr+ it lowers the velocity a little. Might be more problematic with the higher velocity of the 115gr you use.
  2. But you do realize its most often not as simple as putting the barrel in box and popping it the mail for us outside the US, right? Barrels are frequently a restricted item, sometimes with extra paperwork/licensing.
  3. In this case it may be the following, IF it was in the WSB:
  4. IPSC does NOT require a class, but regions may.
  5. Normally the RO writes down the exact rules which was broken and lead to the DQ on score sheet. And informs the RM/area RM. So the competitor should have a clear answer to why they were DQ, even if they dont agree with it. As perttime mentions missing a target on its own isnt a DQ under IPSC. But there are sometimes range restrictions and violating those can lead to a DQ. As an example we have had rifle matches on a military range where pointing the barrel over the berm is a violation. Reason being the range is situated under the approach and departure lanes to Norway's largest airport and also population in the area behind the berms. Military ranges also often have less than 180 deg fire angles. In such cases it must clearly be mentioned in the WSB and also ahead of the match.
  6. Grauffell said in an interview with Saul Kirsch (in 2002/2003 IIRC) he used to shoot a STI/SV, but changed to a Tanfoglio because he had small hands and the grip fitted him better. Not because he thought Tanfo was a better gun.
  7. Thank you. Some F-M products are available, but the complete uppers are not (yet). They have F-M upper for Glock mags listed but with "unfortunately this product cannot be ordered" instead of a buy now button. But I suspect that might be because they are waiting for it to be added to their export license. With the upcoming ITAR changes things should get easier (move from State to Commerce dept). Can currently get F-M BCG, buffers/springs, handguards and triggers. One advantage with our consumer laws, is that for any problems with the products I would only have to deal with Brownells Norway and not have to worry what Faxon or others say. Thats between Brownells and them. I might wait a little to say what uppers/options becomes available if/when PCC become approved by the authorities
  8. Been considering getting a PCC upper but as I live in Norway options are more limited. Buying a dedicated gun are, for time being at least, not an option. Easiest place to get parts are the Norwegian branch of Brownells. So far the options seems to be (unless Brownells adds more for export): Uppers for Colt style mags: Faxon Firearms complete 16" upper, FX916U. Approx $1000 Rock River Arms A4 9mm upper, Approx $1320 (would also need a new handguard) JP Rifles upper is also probably possible but very expensive Hahn conversion block, top down, $323 Colt dedicated block $270 (Is this installed like the Hahn dedicated, by removing bolt stop?) RRA block $400 Brownells with one magazine: $363 Hahn dedicated about $400 Also available: CMMG 9 ARC Resolute 300 upper, approx $1450 Finally another option is to build the upper from parts like: Odin works 9mm upper receiver Barrels range from Faxon at $267 to BSF Carbon at $800 BCG approx $300 + handguard+++ I think my preferred option would be the Faxon complete upper, assuming quality is okay. With Hahn block. Either top down or dedicated. Not sure I want to keep removing and installing the bolt stop as I switch between 9mm and 5.56. Then again how many changes will it be each year? I've been looking at blocks for Colt style mags rather than Glock. Like the standard mag release for consistency, but for reference Stern block for Glocks are $430. Glock 33rds mags are same or more expensive than Metalform 32rds colt style. (this week I can get them on sale for half price or less compared to Glock) Suggestions for buffer/spring? (buffers like JP Silent captured springs are too expensive for now) Any other thoughts/recommendations?
  9. But it states that the scores have been entered for him on all stages. So it looks like he suffered either a fatal gun breakdown or had to pull out for medical reasons just after finishing stage 7. http://www.winmss.com/stats/match/3062d8c6be7d4185ba3f064c231e2e1c/018/verification/856
  10. It should be shortly. That rule will very likely be changed at the upcomming GA. And our RD still have not received any official notice regarding the definition of a comp from IPSC to his RD email, only read about on GV. So until official notification comes, its buisness as usual here in Norway (and the rest of Scandinavia I think). Are any country enforcing it?
  11. Asked HK about a L version at the WS, and got a "maybe, at some point in the future" Perhaps someone asked at the Shot show and got a new answer?
  12. He will also travel for training if his schedule allows. I took his course a few years ago (when he was traveling with his dad) and the cost was roughly the same as Max/Travis and Vogels see www.ericgrauffel.com
  13. No, the competitors got it at main registration at the Lakeland Center. But there are not anyone there now, so I assume you have get it at the range. Best to call and check
  14. You need an ID/badge to be allowed on the range. You could buy those during the registration. The parking lot on the field across from the range had limited space and parking passes cost $50. But they sold out quickly. Those who didn't get one have to park in town and take the shuttle bus out. That parking lot is at 27.759027, -81.533884 Dont know the bus schedule or procedure for spectators Call them and check
  15. I'd suggest you have her contact the UK IPSC Regional Dir. at rd@ukpsa.org he will probably also have some suggestions or points of contact for other than IPSC shooting as well.
