  1. Try holding the timer lower, below the shooter’s elbow on the same side as the ejection port, especially with really big people. Keep the display facing you so your peripheral vision can see the numbers changing. Most PCCs eject to the right, but I’ve seen a few LH-eject PCCs. Figure that out during the Make Ready. I’ve been favoring the new AMG Lab shot timers. It’s really easy to adjust the timer’s sensitivity with just a few button presses without having to scroll thru a long menu or a screw driver on other timers. Bump it up when a PCC shooter comes to the line, drop it back down with a pistol shooter to avoid picking up non-shot sounds. Or have two timers on hand, one set to a higher sensitivity for the PCC’ers, the other for the pistoleers. I’ve been using the AMG Lab timer for Steel Challenge, and it’s been picking up even the most quiet .22LR rifles. Another tip, while the competitor is shooting the first part of the stage experiment with how close (or far) you need to be so you can ensure you’re close enough and be in the right spot to pick up the shot at the end. My first PCC was super quiet. My PACT timer wasn’t consistently picking up the shot even when clipped to my belt in practice. Eventually I got tired of reshoots and switched comps.
  2. I don’t know if the parts are compatible, but this is a good source for GSG magazines and parts. https://www.taylor-tactical-supply.com/gsg-1911-22lr-s/140.htm
  3. Who cares? I didn’t have that gun built with resale in mind. I intend to keep shooting that gun even tho it only weighs an anemic 44.1 oz.
  4. IMO this rule change was needed because there were guns on the Production list that were not allowed in CO unless one drastically reduced the weight. Carry Optics was supposed to be a Production List gun + optic division, but the 45 oz max weight rule limited that. Add to which, manufacturers are building guns reputed to be greater than 45 oz as they follow the trends/desires of the industry. Who knows if that trend will continue but I for one think it’s cool that our little sport can have that much impact on major manufacturers such as Sig, Beretta, Tanfo, CZ, etc. So unless we freeze Prod at a certain point in time, such as only guns that were being produced circa early 2000 when Production first became a division, it needs to evolve as manufacturers continue to innovate. The BOD could have addressed this by going with the old rule of OFM weight including empty mag + 4 oz and left it at that. So once XYZ gun meets the NROI required manufacture number (plus compliance) they would be added to the list and the OFM manufactured weight would be the max weight listed for that gun. Or the BOD could do what they did and just set a flat weight across the board that covered the heaviest factory gun known plus a little cushion (e.g. +4 oz). The latter makes sense because IMO it levels the playing field more so than the previous rule. If somebody shooting a Gen 4 Glock 34 weighing in at 26 + 4 oz wanted to add weight to be on par with the Shadow 2 / Stock 2 / X5 Legion crowd, they can now do so up to 59 ounces. However under the old rules going 30.1 oz would bump them to Open. I find it interesting that the majority of discussion is about the weight limit and not the fact that aftermarket slides, barrels, slide cuts etc. are now allowed.
  5. I took the bait on the flat trigger and ordered one for my Shadow 2 when it was first announced. Stuart @ CZC emailed me to make sure I had the right disconnector installed, which I really appreciate since my gun needed the short DA disco. The trigger and disco dropped in just fine with no fitting needed. It took some dry firing to get used to how it felt, and a few mags this morning at the range to further get accustomed to the flat trigger. But all in all I like my initial outing with the flat trigger.

    Which Shadow 2

    That’s what I did. IMO CZ really narrowed the gap between stock and comp-ready with the Shadow 2. Four spring changes (hammer, recoil, firing pin, and TRS). Two pin changes, extended firing pin and trigger pin. Maybe $50 from CGW?

    Buy Shadow 2 Slide?

    CZC Bull Shadow 2? Not currently on the prod approved gun list, and I seem to recall reading that if you put the Bull Shadow slide on a Shadow 2 frame the rear of the slide doesn’t match up with the rear of the frame. Be awesome tho if CZC made a Bull Shadow slide intended for the S2 frame. Then sell enough of them for Prod. I’d probably buy one.
  8. I put a 5 MOA on backorder back in April/May when they were first announced, then did my best to be patient until they started shipping. I suck at being patient, so when the 2.5 MOAs became available I bought one. I’m still waiting on the 5 MOA to ship, and when it does I’ll compare the two and see which one I like best for pistol shooting. Right now the 2.5 MOA is sitting on a PCC while my Shadow 2‘s slide if off getting milled and Jenny Craig’d. If my S2 comes home before the 5 MOA arrives I’ll Run it with the 2.5 to see how it goes, then try the 5 MOA whenever it shows up. B/c I have a RM07 (6.5 MOA) on another pistol, I suspect I’m going to prefer the 5 MOA SRO. The 2.5 sure is a nice on my PCC in today’s match. Looking thru it felt just like my C-more. So it may be my new optic for the PCC.

    Shadow 2

    I’m normally not a fan of recoil buffers pads. I tried one once in a 2011 and it came apart on me in less than 500 rnds and it also made it harder to release the slide. I’ve shied away from them ever since. However, when I got my Shadow 2 I decided to give it a try. I’ve shot matches with it in and without, did Bill Drills and compared HFs, slow fire accuracy tests... and the thing still looks like it is brand new after 4K-ish rounds from shooting matches pretty steady all winter/spring. It doesn’t impair any of the gun’s function that I can tell, recoil feels about the same, splits and hits at speed are the same... So for the first time I’ve decided to leave it in until something happens that indicates I should take it out.
  10. The P10F basically uses a P-09 mag, right? For my P10C I got a P-09 mag and added the 140mm mag extension that Springer Precision sells. 23 rnds with the Grams follower. Fits the mag gauge.
  11. Tough decision. The traditionalist approach is to have at least one 1911 in .45acp. Some like the .40SW for ease in using the same ammo in Limited div. But you can’t discount the sheer fun of shooting a 1911 chambered in 9mm. Plus having a couple extra rounds can make a difference in stage planning and let you take more risk. I couldn’t decide, so I ended up with iterations of all three in my gun safe. But I will say that I started with the .45acp and shot it for at least 2 years in SS before getting the urge to scratch the .40 and 9mm itch. I shot the fo-five at a match not too long ago and it was just like hanging out with an old friend.
  12. Initially I tried the 3 and 3.5 lb HBi striker springs. Ran fine, gave me a sub 4 lb trigger pull with the lightest spring. No creep that I recall. However when I switched to the CGW striker I started getting light strikes with CCI primers. Thought it was sloppy primer seating at first, but I still got them occasionally even when I ensured I was seating them deep enough. With Federal primers no issues. However this gun does double duty as an EDC, so I went back to the stock striker spring and stopped getting light strikes. 4.5 lb trigger pull with decent wall and minimal creep.

    G43X

    Thanks! Handled a G48 today at the range. It felt good in the hand. Reason I asked: 8 rnds in the G43 w/ TTI +2 vs 10 rnds in G43X more or less same size package. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

    G43X

    Do you have a TTI +2 on your G43? If you do, curious how the length of the G43X grip compares to the G43 w/ the +2 TTI. Which one is longer?
