    No but all you have to do is pull the extractor out of the housing and install in the other housing

    Can you just drop the entire housing with the new ejector into a Gen 3? Does the Gen5 housing work in a Gen 3?

    Deemed engraving tool with a long/sharp chisel shaped tip. Works like a tiny jackhammer. Best way I’ve ever found.

    Do you have a part number for the tip or can you link amazon or another place to buy? Thanks!

    I’ve had both my main and my backup in to a smith for repairs, not minor ones.  If your serious you need to have a backup, but if your not I personally now have a nice co gun that I switch to when my open gun is down.  It keeps me fresh with the dot and it’s not that big of a switch.  Another option to think about

    That is precisely what I’m doing now....converting an old production gun to Carry Optics so at least I can still play with a gun with a dot on it to finish the season. Next season I will have mine back, and my guy will be building the second open gun.

  4. This stuff has been tested. One can look these things up.


    If buying something allows someone to get excited, have more confidence, and practice more, I think there is value in it even if there is not a major difference in the actual product.

    Glad to hear from you on the Echo. I thought about upgrading but my V4's are fine. Hold zero, same battery lasts all season, no malfunctions. I see no need to change. Thanks!

    I feel the exact same way.

  6. If you call them you can get any 3 lenses you want as part of a set. I’m using 94HC, 54 HC and 26 ED. The numbers are for the amount of light transmission. 94 for indoor range or very cloudy days, 54 HC for kinda cloudy and 26 ED for very sunny. I shoot on mostly green surroundings, shoot mostly a red dot irons is green fiber. This was per Max Michel. The guys at Pilla recommended 80 HC, 48 RHC and 18 CED.

    I guess I will email Max Michel to see what lens color he recommends? I wish I could find some on sale, but it looks like that is not in the cards. Oh well, cry once buy once, or however that saying goes.

    If you find the answer, please let us know here. When I shoot irons, I shoot with a green fiber. Max and the guy at Pilla seemed more interested in what environment I was shooting in such as mostly green vs desert, and dot vs irons rather than what color dot. I have 3 lenses that I bought as a set from them for basically different lighting conditions but the colors are all pretty similar. Something to know too, there are two shapes to the lenses, a more rounded shape, and a shape that’s more like a bat wing that flares out at the bottom. Some lenses are only available in the more rounded shape, but my understanding is that the bat wing type shape is the newer shape.

  8. You can do that. He recommended my lenses to me but for open shooting with a red dot. You should call Pilla too, even if they don’t know they know who their shooters are and can point you in the right direction.
