  1. It’s nice that there’s enough ammo around that we can be picky! That may not always be the case, and is oftentimes not the case in the middle of the season when ammo becomes more scarce and many manufacturers are out. That’s one reason why I haven’t changed to Syntech yet....supply has been an issue in the past, and I’d rather change temporarily from something similar like T1 124 gr to Atlanta Arms 124 gr than from something really different like T1 to 150 gr Syntech....So, unless you plan on buying a TON, like enough for the whole season ton right now when it’s available, you may consider staying with a more common/traditional bullet for factory ammo. My $.02.
  2. Sorry to hear that. I can tell you, it isn’t for me. I spend more than that in 1 month just for the babysitting to have someone watch my kids to shoot matches every month.
  3. Seriously, this thread needs to be locked up. Nobody cares about this tired story anymore. You guys need to just move on with your lives. $300 especially if you’re a GM is not a big deal. You probably spend more than that in 3 weeks for ammo. Just let it go. Nobody cares but you.
  4. This is exactly what happened to me...my wife stole my GMR-15 so I had to buy another one for myself.
  5. I would vote for a DPP with Duracell battery.
  6. I use weapon shield for the larger areas and Lucas gun oil for the rails and little spots and it seems to be running great.
  7. I have an STI trojan in .45 and I have many Wilson ETM mags (Like a dozen) and they all feed all ammo perfectly. I would exchange them and try again. Also one thing to try is to load and unload them to capacity 6 times before using them, as sometimes that settles the Spring and follower. I have to do this with my MBX 2011 mags, never had to do it with the Wilsons, but worth a try. Have the mags been loaded and unloaded 6 times each yet?
  8. I’m running t1 ammo, but it’s a little expensive. They load with TMJ ammo, 30.4 cents per round for the bulk stuff. TMJ so no exposed lead base so you won’t have to clean lead out of your comp. Loaded longer than regular factory stuff, around 1.155 compared to 1.123 for Atlanta Arms, for example, but still functions fine in the mags, feeds fine. I used it all last year for both my wife and myself, thousands of rounds, only ever got one round that was a dud, a short 1.112 ish long round. I plan to only use T1 brand PCC ammo this year. You mght also consider Federal Syntech is making a new PCC round in the coated red bullets. I personally prefer copper bullets, though . i zeroed everything to 12 yards last year, primary optic, 45 degree secondary optic and the laser. It worked fine, but my area (area 8 has a PCC specific match, level 2 for which I’m expecting some long distance shots. This year, I zeroed to 25 yards for the primary optic, 12 for the side dot, and 12 for the laser. Hope this info helps.
  9. Are plastic STI grips obsolete? No. Everyone has different preferences. It’s good to have options.
  10. If.....it’s actually good. I agree that expensive stuff that is good flies off the shelves. Expensive stuff that is junk, however, goes the way of the dodo. We know it’s expensive. Now, we can let some of the early adopters figure out if it’s crap for us.
  11. Also, if you want your mind blown, my wife and I are going to start next season with a hybrid...GMR-15 lower with short stroke buffer, and FM9 upper. That lightened up the front end by a full pound, made the gun a LOT more maneuverable in transitions, and also has the forward charging handle, which is more convenient. Food for thought, more options.
  12. That’s the best magwell currently available for GMR-15, and I’ve literally tried them all and then some.
  13. All you DAA guys...do you mean the racer? I’m using safariland, but I think it’s time to go bullets out.
  14. Well, if they made GM with them, I’d say they doin alright. Max Leograndis and Josh Froelich aren’t using MPXs, and they’re doin alright too, just sayin’.........
  15. Bro, don’t feel bad. I’m a Thoracic Surgeon and it’s out of my price range. I just went the Peltor 500 / Gel Cup route from Amazon. I haven’t used them to shoot yet or to make calls yet while shooting, but so far they turn on at least,
  16. I shoot an STi Trojan in .45 acp and I use the Wilson ETM mags with the Dawson No Gap Basepads and the insert. You have to make sure you have both the correct insert and the correct basepad.
  17. I’m running T1 PCC ammo (124 gr TMJ) in my JP GMR-15 because it doesn’t have exposed lead and then I don’t get buildup in the comp. TMJ vs. FMJ difference. It’s loaded longer than most, around 1.15-1.16, so I don’t know how those will run in colt mags but they have been fine in all kinds of Glock an Glock style mags. They have been 99.999%, I did get one abnormally super short round around 1.11 out of literally thousands of rounds. I’ve also run Atlanta Arms 124 gr, and Precision Delta 124 gr, both of those ran fine too. Haven’t chrono’ed anything yet but I imagine they would all make power factor. All are fine in terms of accuracy. https://t1ammo.com/product/competition-ammunition/9mm-luger-124-gr-tmj-pcc-competition-handgun-ammunition/
  18. Does the Rosin grip get sticky crap all over your gun? Does dirt stick to your hands after using it? Are you guys using the powder version?
  19. Oh my God the price... plus I don’t know if I can call out on it, to talk or just hear the phone call. Thanks for the suggestion though those look like awesome plugs, but I need a new open gun before those, haha
  20. I’m trying to find a solution for being able to have hearing protection and be able to make phone calls at the same time, maybe a Bluetooth solution? Has anyone found a solution for this that works well? I need to be able to take phone calls immediately and sometimes I have to walk away a fairly long way to get to an area where there is no shooting going on to be able to hear and talk well. Thanks.
  21. I get excellent customer service from MBX. Score now 1 to 1.
