  1. Unfortunately there is no logic behind what was done, what was and wasn't included in the initial ban. And there is word that more bans are being drafted, as well as ammo and magazine restrictions. The only "legal" PCC I currently have left is the Ruger, but we'll see for how long. All Ar upper receivers are listed as prohibited due to the fact that they can be assembled to an AR lower. We're fighting it in court, will see how it plays out. May only be left with break action shotguns by the time this is all over. If anyone is open to adopting a few Canadians seeking freedom, there's a long list of willing candidates. I'm house broken and low maintenance, will work for ammo.
  2. what about carbon fiber?
  3. The largest spread between sight and bore on any of my rifles is about 3" At 1 meter, the max possible drop would be this 3" If you have a 6" drop at 1 meter, that would mean the center of your optic is about 15cm above the center of the barrel. So unless you have a huge riser on your optic and a chin weld on your stock, or are using a parascope for an optic, there's something wrong in your measurements.
  4. How high is your sight over your barrel? This doesn't really sound correct.
  5. I'd say this confirms an ammo issue. If you have enough over pressure to blow the contents of the magazine right through the base pad, I think you'd have enough pressure to crack the barrel/slide. Not being too familiar with Longshot, can the case fit enough for a double charge?
  6. Features Weight: 8.5 oz / 241 g Insole: 6 mm Contour Footbed Midsole: Altra EGO™ Outsole: Vibram® MegaGrip® with 6 mm lugs Cushion: Low Stack Height: 19 mm Upper: Tear resistant quick-dry upper Copied from their site. Hope that gives you the answer you are looking for in terms of drop. Tread life, I've worn them for I'd say the equivalent of one good shooting season, still plenty of tread. Hasn't really warn down at all. They are super comfortable though, I can wear them all day without issue. Have Speedcross, Inov8 mud claws as well. The Altra are my favorite to wear
  7. I just like looking at comp designs which is why I asked to see it up close. I like shiny things... My PCC hasn't really changed since day 1. Mostly because I'm lazy, but also because its 100% reliable and I shoot it well. Now, if someone like Max ever finds out about Altra King shoes, there'll be no catching him!
  8. Anyone have a better picture of this comp or a link to it? Curious what it actually looks like
  9. I tried searching but haven't been able to find what I'm looking for. Was wondering if there is enough bearing surface on a 5" SVI hybrid barrel to be able to machine back and thread it to mimic a factory IMM hybricomp length barrel. I'd like to build my own version of an IMM top end, and was hoping someone may have gone down this path before. Any advice is appreciated.
  10. Thanks. I figured I was overthinking it. I know what you mean about cutting more than planned. Design changes on the fly! I don't have the DRO installed on mine yet. Its siting beside the mill at the moment. My first build was more of a challenge to see if I could actually make something that works rather than make it pretty. Learned quite a bit. After the first 500ish rounds, pretty much had the bugs worked out and has been running well all year. Have about 4000 rounds through it now. This is a picture of mine when it was in progress.
  11. I'm referring to the front/bottom of the slide, where it transitions from comp to slide to frame. Most guns out there, they use a ball end mill and the cut is round, yours is a flat transition from comp to slide I'm referring to the cut you made in the picture below:
  12. Sorry, I meant the "Butler cut" type stirrup cuts. I'm starting to look at different cutters to try and match SVI butler cut appearance and angles. I'm sure I'm overthinking it.
  13. What kind of endmill/cutter did you use for the slide cuts? I prefer that vs a ball cut for a tri topped slide. I think it looks good so far. well done
  14. Where can one find a Schuemann barrel these days? everyone seems to be sold out.
