  1. There are some PPC-only matches that require shooting targets at longer distances. I can see the advantage of a bipod in such events but, on most USPSA matches where targets are placed at average distances of 7 to 20 yards, I do not believe that a bipod offers an advantage.
  2. I loaded some 115gr bullets over Autocomp thinking that the additional gas would make the compensator of my 16" rifle work for something other that a hood-ornament and I felt no difference. However, it made a positive difference on an AR-9 pistol I own though the recoil was much more noticeable. I quickly went back to using Titegroup. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  3. It certainly does! Thus far, I have had good luck with CMC triggers in a couple of AR-9's but I have heard that plenty of people have had triggers break on them. I am not sure if I have only been lucky or if I have not yet experienced a trigger breakage because of my bolt/buffer combination. I will certainly keep the KE Arms trigger in mind for when the time comes to replace my current setup.
  4. That is what I was thinking about. It seems that triggers and trigger pins (in addition to firing pins) are some of the first things to bite the dust.
  5. I understand that the reason why shooters remove the bolt weight of their AR-9's is to reduce the weight of the reciprocating mass, therefore, reducing the felt recoil. However, by doing so, are you not also putting more stress on the firearm and hence increasing the risk of damaging it (or, at the very least, breaking parts more often)?
  6. I am not saying that this is an overstatement but what I will say is that 2" groups at 25yds are better than what many finely-tuned 1911's are capable of and almost unheard of out of most polymer pistols.
  7. I do not believe the break was caused by dry fire as I seldom drop the hammer when I do. The broken firing pin was a product of live fire. I don't know exactly how many rounds fired but, if I had to guess, I would say that it was about 1,500 rounds. Sent from my Nexus 7 using Tapatalk
  8. Brownell's shows them on their webpage but they are currently out of stock. I don't know if this is true or internet rumor but I I have read that Colt, CCMG and Wilson firing pins are all manufactured by the same company.
  9. By the looks of it, that is a "standard" 9mm firing pin. Colt, CMMG & Wilson 9mm rifle firing pins will all work in that bolt.
  10. JP Firing Pins seem to be made of quality materials. Nonetheless, it appears to only work with their bolt and not other brands.
  11. Perusing through the forum brings to light that the black New Frontier firing pins (which I believe are no longer being offered) are the most prone to breakage. I have heard that the standard colt-pattern 9mm PCC firing pins like those made by CMMG and Wilson will last longer though, they too will eventually break. Then there are those firing pins that look different from the "standard" colt-pattern: i.e. Kaw Valley (https://www.kawvalleyprecision.com/Spare-KVP-Gen2-9mm-BCG-Firing-Pin-p/kvp-gen2-9mm-pin.htm) and Taccom (https://taccom3g.com/product/9mm-firing-pin/) but, then again, those do
  12. I normally reload for my PCC but, the other day, I was feeling lazy and picked up some 9mm 115gr PMC to practice with. The accuracy was excellent and the recoil impulse was nearly non-existent. The only problem was that the rifle felt "sluggish" but, as an "oh shoot I forgot to reload and now I gotta pick up some ammo at Walmart before the match" it was not a bad choice. However, this got me thinking... Is the sluggish recoil impulse typical when shooting slow-burning powders in a PCC? I ask because this was a far departure from what I am used to when loading with Titegroup. I
