  1. Smoke hand guard and stock..awesome setup!
  2. Differently not right - I've owned 5 or 6 Akai's and never anything like that - Shay will make that right I'm sure..
  3. Good to know..Are they as bad as RTS’s have been? I’ll stick with Sig and Trijicon..
  4. I second the ideal of buying a used Open gun to start with. Buy a SV or Akai IMO. You can a low mile one on here often and save a ton of money. When you get the chance to shoot buddies open gun of different brand, never pass it up. I've owned Atlas, Akai, Cheely, CK arms, Freedom arms, STI, and several other brands...currently shooting a SV Infinity and will likely order a new one this year...but it's all personally preference really. Find one that you think is sharp gun, one that feels good in your hands, more importantly, one that runs, and enjoy.
  5. While I've always shot SRO/Romeo/RTS's optics on my open guns, I recently bought an open pistol that had a Vortex Viper on it. It last till I got home with it...then it started going off by itself...you could turn it on and drop the hammer and it'd go out. The previous owner had to have known there was an issue but didn't disclose it, so you can image I wasn't real happy with deal. Vortex to the recuse though....I called Vortex and reached a very nice lady(Jodie Hernandez). She sent me a PO and shipping label. This was on Monday the 5th of April. I sent it out on Tuesday the 6th. Thursday the 8th, I received a brand new replacement Viper at zero cost to me...I wasn't even out shipping. Vortex customer service is absolutely the best hands down that I've ever dealt with. I believe that a company that gives this good of customer service deserves a shout out, especially in todays market where lots of business are using Covid as an excuse for horrible customer service.
  6. Did that about 4 months ago - said site is updated daily..
  7. I heard it was their shipping programs that alerted them to the fact that a larger amount of primers where going to same addresses time and time again...you knows how hear stuff though...those customers had apparently been warned before over placing multi orders...PV finally give them the boot..as regards to the bots, I've not sure on that...
  8. Good to see Powder Valley post regarding "banning some people for life" . The whole Cozy deal is trying to beat the bots. Apparently some of these guys had programs where they were ordering 100K at a time and it going through until PV caught on...you know those all ended up on gunbroker...anyways, good to see a company step up and try stopping the resellers so their regular customers might get some products..
  9. Has anyone on here been successful at catching bullets in stock and buying any? I've been trying for months to catch them stock but haven't had any luck....Just wondering if my timing is truly that bad...
  10. Tried the laser at the last match..I must be to stupid to run one...had a open target straight ahead on starting..green dot dead center...buzzer goes off, two quick shoots and then I just stand there looking at the holes - wasted couple seconds. Point is for me the dot wondering around on the target is so unusual that it throws me off..I'm sure with pratice I'd get use to it quickly, but combined with the it's useless in bright light, I'm not a fan..putting my red dot back on 45 for hard leans and going from there..
  11. Some awesome guns here! I might have missed it, but reason for the ball? Got smoke hand guard installed - going have to add some color next...
  12. Where you guys mounting the laser?
  13. Let’s see them..be neat to see everyone’s setup...I’m always looking for neat/useful accessories.. I got 3 JP’s GMR-15’s- one comp ready with vertical port comp, one comp ready with 3-port comp and a ultra lite. All three wear hiperfire triggers. Main gun I’m running 24C trigger, 45/90 safety, Taylorfreelance mag well, Holosun 510C GR, RTS2 on 45 mount, and Smoke Composite stock. Waiting on tool from JP so I can install Smoke 12” hand guard. These guns simply run...
  14. My Infinity 9 open loved 10grs of Shooters World Major - soft and flat. Tried the same load in the Akai 9 open that I picked up, it was horrible - dot jumped out of glass at 2, came back in at 3....switched back to my go to load of 7.2 WAC, pistol shoots as flat as anything I've owned - just trying the say that different powders will shoot completely different in different guns. Need to try them. You'll end up with a mess trying to run 3N38 in 9 major - spillage due to the full case is pain in the tail..
  15. Well I ended up really liking PCC class, so I bought two more JP's - one comp ready from Shooters with vertical comp and another comp ready with 3-port side comp. I bought a spare JP 5H Short Stroke SCS as well to play with between the 3 guns since they come with the SCS but with 5 Stainless instead of the 5 Tungstens. While I love the JP15 Ultralite weight, for me, the comp ready guns with the14.5 barrels are the ticket - I settled on 4SS and 1T weight in each system. Loading 124MG to 133PF keeps boths bullets within inches apart double tapping fast as I can out to 15 yards or so. The Ultralite is alot hard for me to tune the dot bounce out. I'm waiting a JP's special barrel nut to into my 12" Smoke carbon tube. I've got their stock installed and its awesome..
  16. I just installed a hyperfire 24C in both my JP GMR15's....hate to admit it, but I spent over 5 hours trying to install the first trigger. Just couldn't get the pins to align...when I finally did, everything was locked up.. Turns out the the Hyperfire and JP safeties weren't working well together. Drop a Armaspec 45/90 in both guns and they function and run perfectly now...while the JP triggers are nice from factory, I'm a real big fan of the 24C with flat trigger and shoe - awesome trigger..
  17. Darqusoull13, Thank you for reply! That's the kind of info I'm looking for. I'm bump the power factor up some as 124's is all I got at the moment. Did you leave trigger stock? Thanks again Jim
  18. Recently picked up a GMR-15 ultralite - It's my understanding that the gun is already short stroked(from factory with JPSCS2-9SS-5). I'm assuming the 9SS-5 stands off 5 stainless steel. It's running the polished stainless JP 9mm Enhancedbolt. Worked up a load with sport pistol under a 124MG running about 133pf...unless I'm really locking the gun in hard, I'm getting more movement than I was expecting. I'm new to the PCC game, so I'm looking for some tips and mods to get this rifle running the best it will...only thing I've done is add a Taylor Free mag well and bought a couple of TT plus 10 base pads-if I can ever get the damn pads off the 33 round glock mags I have... Thanks in advanced!!
  19. Posted from Cell phone, ended up here by mistake, in wrong forum..mods delete if needed..
  20. Loading my Akai 9 top 1.165 with MG JHP’s no problem. 8lb spring cut a little with one blue soft buffer and one alumi buffer..with Shooters Major at 170pf, my dot run out of glass at 2 o’clock, back in at 3..weird load..it’s was very dirty..went back to WAC 7.0grs..dot moves straight up and down..doesn’t move 1/2 way out of glass..soft and very flat in my setup..
  21. Blake Liles of Area 415 training out of Abilene does a very good class...
  22. Put in wrong forum..sorry..they lasted less than 5 mins
