  1. First match of the year and I did OK but I notice my revolver does not have as much light around the front sight as my semi guns. I was just wondering if this is a good or bad thing. I have a .125 front with a .145 rear!
  2. Thanks, I do have some big Pmags so may just keep this one as a SHTF at home tool. Thanks!
  3. Not thinking clearly I ordered one of these and installed it on a Glock Long magazine 31 rounds I think. It works great and with no problems but it is really long. Will it only work on the 31 round magazine? Can I install it on a 17 rounder? Does it require a new spring and is one available. Local matches I shoot almost always have a mandatory magazine change in a regular stage and I don't need that big of a magazine. Thanks!
  4. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002WFHENC/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004L04Z7Y/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I had some points saved on Amazon so I bought a pk of 20 chamber safety tools and 20 flags. The remove before flight were the cheapest and still bright enough to see. You have to cut about 1/2" off the chamber part to fit PCC and drill a hole. I gave 12 away at the last indoor carbine match!
  5. I am running them pretty warm so I don't think it is unburnt powder. But I will keep researching about this and the hone. The hone instructions I saw online says "start spinning outside cylinder and go all the way through." I sure don't want to mess up a cylinder. I may use finest scotch brite and mag polish first to see what happens. Thanks for the help.
  6. Yes, I shoot using speedloaders and I have noticed the moon clip guys don't seem to have the problem.
  7. Where do I get a hone for that job? Sounds like it can't hurt!
  8. I don't think it is all that dirty especially with the N320. I just found three cases in my reloading box from the last match and the brass is still pretty shiny and no soot on it. What is the min-max bore of the cylinder? I wonder if it could be on the small size even though reloads drop right in a clean gun, not sure if that is a true indicator.
  9. I use both Bayou 160gr RN and also Xtreme 147 Plated RN. Are you talking about just pushing an empty .357 case in the hole. I never thought of that. I suspect it is due to firing .38's in a .357. In competition I couldn't afford the time to load the longer bullets but I do make sure that crud ring is completely gone when cleaning. Yes the ammo issue is the same for Icore but if it worked I could rig something up with what used to be a .357 case.
  10. Is there any way around having to brush out the cylinder every few stages to keep my rounds dropping freely into my S&W 66? I have used W231 and N320 with the same results. I gauge the rounds and also check them in the cylinders. Loose as can be, drop right in and out but when the gun gets a little warm or dirty, one or two rounds don't seat flush and I have to push them in the cylinder, which really slows down a reload. Is this mostly normal or should I have the cylinder holes checked. I already polished them with mag wheel polish
  11. I like the looks of the North Mountain but right now my wallet doesn't as I am just getting my feet wet in ICORE. I have been using two Safariland 333 holders to carry six Comp III's and they have worked well through the three matches I have shot. I hunted around and found them somewhere on sale online, I think $30 on ebay with free shipping.
  12. I use the CGW sights and I think that is what is in the picture.The sights from both companies are very nice. Just depends what you want and if for competition or carry. Sent from my HP 7 using Tapatalk
  13. I used the competition black rear and FO front from Cajun Gun Works.
