    Atlas Trigger

    I have the first series Cheeley grip and my long flat trigger from Adam would not fit the slot (previous STI was fine). So you may still have some slight fitting to be done to get it the way you want. The adjustability is really nice!

    140mm or 155mm mbx mags?

    I use my 140's and 155's interchangeably. If your plan is to only have one 170 mag though I would definatly have a 155 in the bag. If you start having issues with the 170 mag during a match starting just a few rounds down with a 155 will give you better options....

    Grip screw fell out

    If you update your profile or post where your located / match your attending you would probably find someone willing to help if you don't locate a correct fastener....
  4. Why would the shooter even argue about a shot not being picked up? Since your score is based on the time at last shot if that was missed your time is now less and score better... Now the other competitors may start barking, but as the shooter wouldn't you just accept the time and walk away??

    Burris Fast Fire 3 on a S&W 627

    Alchin mount works slick. Only downside I found with the ff3 is the small window.. Some draw & dry fire will help with finding the dot though.. I like the 8moa...

    USPSA Revolver Optics Division

    When I started this thread the question was more because Steel challenge allows for revolver optics as its own division. When the Carry Optics question came up there was a 10 rnd limit there so it was a natural Segway.... I still think it would be sweet to have 2 disciplines in which to use an optic Revo but now that steel challenge is no longer an option in my area the Revo is back to open sights!! ps:. Glad to see we are still talking about this,. Means not everyone has sold off their revolvers yet!!
  7. For a couple of years I traveled from Vermont to N.Y. For a small level 1 local match where several friends also attend. I did follow states magazine rule, kept the pistol locked in my trunk in locked container,. Ammo in the passenger compartment (no loaded magazines) letter of invitation and only traveled to and from the event. I went a step farther and got an email of approval from the Sheriffs dept. of the 2 counties I traveled thru in N.Y. Based on Federal laws,. Good to go... Also,. The bulk of the events shooters were /are law enforcement officials in N.Y. And they are also well aware of the out of staters at match and agree to the above noted practice.. At the start of the 3rd season I planned to attend I received this response from the Sheriffs dept. to my email intending to travel for the match. Sheriffs name and barracks left out for privacy: "Mr. Fisher, I appreciate you reaching out to us regarding this inquiry. You are correct, NY is a permit only state in order to possess a pistol as defined by the NYS Penal Law. I know of no lawful way for you to transport/possess a pistol into/within NYS without you possessing a NYS pistol permit. Though I am unaware of the specifics, I understand that if this is a NRA sanctioned event then they have processes in place to assist you in the transport of a pistol. I wish I could have been of more help. Feel free to reach out with any further requests. " Long story short,. The interpretation of the State / Federal laws may be left up to a judge to decide if for some reason you are in the unfortunate position to be in front of an official who would prefer to not be in a position to make a decision on the spot. To me,. A local match with friends not worth the hassle involved if I run across a guy having a bad day when I'm changing a flat with a locked gun case in the trunk..... This type of confusion is one of many reasons why so many of us in Vermont are upset that our State has now become a "Restricted State" also...... P.S. There seems to be varying positions on whether a local level 1 USPSA event is actually NRA sanctioned.....

    Advantages and disadvantages of 155mm mags

    I like to start with the 155's for classifiers where a re-load is required followed up with a 140... Typically there are enough rounds left in the mag that it drops from the gun faster /better. And I hate dropping a 170 to the ground if I don't need to.....

    My Older style frame did fit with some modification required.. Not difficult but you really have to do some experimenting...

    Open Gun Pictures

    Randy,. Those 3D cuts look pretty sweet in the slide.. I'm guessing it's gonna shoot pretty flat and has a damn nice trigger.. !!!

    Can anyone top 9 procedurals?

    My first classifier went so poorly my well seasoned R.O. Turned and looked at me head shaking and said “ I don’t even know how to score that mess” !!! That was a fun match!!!!

    Too popple...or not to popple.

    As posted below,. If the ports are slightly angled forward there is little to no lens residue. Below is a clip from a short test video I made. You will note the port on the c-more side is angled forward more than the front port which then blocks the gases from moving towards the sight. I run an 90deg no shield c- more and am able to stay pretty clear.

    S&W 929 Holster

    The 929 does fit in the Safariland 002 for N- frames and, works well. Guga Ribas makes a nice race holster that fits most anything if you want to go with an open style holster, l started with the 002 then went to the GB..

    CK Arms 2011 grip safety issue

    What is your location?? I am sure that someone at your local club could take a quick look and guide you thru the best way to correct it. It looks like the stock MSH is in place and not fit correctly. Really,. An easy fix for someone who has experience with 2011's... My guess,. A new MSH and your in business. Here are a couple pics of what a new MSH looks like in that area.. Oh,. And welcome to the forum!!!
