  1. Dan... good luck...I hope you have a drop in installation, or be able to provide clearance with a simple change in the mag catch shelf height... I may have been able to do so, but .065" was too much for my installation, and I encountered multiple angle and interference problems I really wanted a simple fix...I'm happy with the Magpul at this point, and even if the Cain addition does not proved enough rounds, I can always section a couple of the Magpul bodies... after all I started with a 7 round .45 in 1982, and can always stick a reload in
  2. Roy... we have a new place to eat... the unit ran flawlessly with the Magpul 27 rounders today... I clocked the comp at a pretty severe angle... unfortunately my cataract does not allow me to use a dot sight... the ACOG is pretty sharp, so I'll use it
  3. received an e-mail reply from Robin Taylor (Taylor Freelance) ... said he may look into an extension for a Magpul.... MemphisMechanic.... what lower do you use?... my problem is most likely the angle of the mag well in the NFA lower as the Magpul follower does not sit a high as as the ETS or Glock Dan Serpina... thank you for the reply, that was an option I was considering
  4. Memphis Mechanic...I first lowered the catch engagement in an ETS mag for my trial fitting... the bolt hit the front of the mag lip on the ETS and rear of the OEM Glock mag which was clearanced... I milled the mag catch shelf on my NFA by .065" and the bolt would not strip a round, it contacted the top cartridge about 1/8" up the case.... I lowered the catch hole in a Colt style mag for the lower for my SBR with mag adapter for about .010" at a time and ran into the same problem on extracting the last round... what I am trying to accomplish is smooth hand cycling of dummy rounds...sharp point of the bolt catches the follower when the last round is slowly extracted... the Magpul mags cycle dummies fine..most likely I would not have a problem with the magazine working in a match... the bolt would clearance itself over time....thanks for the comments, I too,thought lowering the mag catch shelf would solve my problems... didn't think a 1/16" would make that much difference Cavy thank you for the heads up on the Cain arms edit... ordered on the the Cain Arms mag extensions thanks all... hope this works
  5. Barry, Scooter thank you for the gracious offers of help....I have inquiries into Taylor Freelance and Taran Tactical....I really don't think I'm the only one that has encountered this problem with magazine clearance when using 9mm lowers by other than CMMG....I've shot the Magpul 17 rounders without a problem, and just received the 27s today... so far they appear to be a simple solution to the interference problem...I will try to get to the range tomorrow and test the longer magazines the PMags have a "square" 90degree base plate similar to the Colt format magazines... a friend has a T/F for a Colt and I will check it out when I can, again, thank you for your offer of help, I'll keep your offer in mind... regards Les L747
  6. it looks like the bolt/magazine clearance problem I have with a CMMG radial bolt and barrel in my non factory lower has been solved by using Magpul 9mm Glock magazines... now problem is that they are 27 rounds, and would like to add an extension... have looked at T/F and TTI web sites and did not see a listing for extended magazine base plates specifically for the Magpul bodies... they are a different angle and my T/F do not fit... can anyone point me in the right direction?.... thank you Les L747
  7. please keep me informed with any modifications you make in the future... regards Les L747
  8. I did not notice any brass marks, and watching a friend shoot it, there was no indication with any ejection port striking... I have access to a milling machine if needed in the future
  9. early New Frontier Armory billet, without bolt hold open... at the worst, I'm out 4 Glock followers... thanks for the help...my preliminary trials were with a second lower, a PSA billet (made by NFA), and did not want to change anything that could not be replaced in a timely manner until I got it checked out in the primary rifle
  10. thank you .... it looked as though around .100" would do it... I get a couple of small scratches on brass....only shot a couple of hundred rounds through it, so far has run 100 percent... I use an ETS 31 rounder with a Taylor Freelance extension for competition
  11. NPDriver... thanks, I trimmed the followers in addition to checking for rear clearance, but if causes a problem will lower the shelf on the mag catch... I had problems with only the rear of the first 2 mags I stuck in the carbine, naturally....did you actually measure the amount you removed? and if so, how much?....
  12. I shot it with my 135 grain 146 power factor coated Bayou bullets, and with Howard's 100 grain plated...perception wise, I can hold A hits at 25yd double taps with very little effort.... watching Howard shoot, there was virtually no observed recoil... had a very consistent ejection pattern with the plunger ejector in the bolt....there is an option to add additional weight to the carrier and probably a little room for playing with the internal bolt spring
  13. Roy... I should have it pretty much together by then... I had the test bed on a straight H2 buffer and spring no muzzle device... stuck Howard's carbine hydraulic in and his comp that was 1/2 x 28 for a 9mm....will need to get the okey doke from Leo... see you the 24th
  14. just got back from a comparison of a CMMG radially delayed bolt and barrel combo (not a complete CMMG rifle) on a back up lower to my blow back 9mm carbine... the results are promising enough that I will switch the barrel and bolt to my current PCC... to utilize the hydraulic buffer, and will run a 3/8 drill through a Miculek comp from one of the 5.56 guns... only problem so far was the need to clearance the rear of the magazine to fit the slightly wider lower bottom lug on the carrier that strips the cartridges... a MagPul Glock style mag did not need clearance... a slight clearance cut on an ETS and Glock mag also received a slight trim on the height of the follower....still in the development stage.... regards
  15. standardized for my PCC and Briley barreled G34.... 135 Bayou coated and 3.6 WSF... 130 in the G34, and 146 in the PCC
