  1. I have the old style powder measures and use both the springs and the fail safe rod, kinda like wearing both a belt and suspenders the fail safe rod only comes into play on the bottom of the stroke to ensure the powder bar is fully closed
  2. To be fair, most red dots don’t survive his testing, including the SRO and the Romero 1pro with the steel shroud but he does have a consistent testing procedure and he comes across as sincere and honest on his opinion on various red dots he tested. Not of duty use
  3. Add a disconnector stuck in the down position to the above, I polish the top edge of the middle finger of the sear spring where it rides on the disconnector also you removed the over travel screw, does the trigger have any over travel after the hammer falls, I had one that I removed the over travel screw and still had similar issues as you describe, I then realized the trigger shoe itself was hitting the mag catch and filed it down
  4. On the old style powder measures there were springs that wrapped around the post and the PM body that returned the powder bar back into it.
  5. I’ve been using the same setup for a few years, works well but the initial getting use to them was a bit
  6. For a 1911 also look at the cr speed holster adjustable for many types of frames
  7. My production, SS and CO load is 4.0 of 231 under a 135 gn blue bullet give me 135pf
  8. My 308 rifle dies that I got direct from Dillon in the late 80’s are black
  9. That’s impressive my V1 lasted 400 rounds before it died
  10. I use the Lyman lube for pistol and it happens, I’ve never had it affect my ammo 1 hint about using it is to let it dry before loading, it’s not like the old fashion lube that you used wet My process is after inspection, wet tumble and dry, I immediately lube the cases and Let them sit, sometimes for days or weeks before I load them
  11. what the others have said 15 yards is pushing it for a laser, the only time I used it beyond 10 yards was when I forgot to turn on my dot
  12. I used a dremel with a sanding drum, took it down below flush to the comp until I saw the outline of the pin, then flipped it over and tapped with a hammer until the pin fell out
  13. The Romero 1pro is also much brighter than a rts2
  14. The height is a tiny bit smaller than a rts2, but it’s a lot wider, I direct mounted mine to my legion and once I figure out I suck with a striker gun I switched to a old 5906 with dovetail mount. I thought the height difference would be a big deal, but it’s wasn’t
  15. Yep that was me add low ports and bad knees, put the pcc thru the port look thru the mesh wall for the dot and engage
  16. I’d go with 140’s for local match because they’re easier to reload, and if you’re like my state, you’ll be reloading a bunch. They’re long enough to use with the magwell , but not too long to be unwieldy if you’re going to travel, having both is nice i run nurtured 140’s at home with all my standard cap mags living in Exile in a free state
  17. The Havoc is built on a caspian high cap frame, and half the battle to get a caspian to run is finding good mags the original caspian mags with silver tubes were the best, they looked cheap but take a amazing amount of abuse and kept on going. If you can find some that are not beat to s#!t, I’d get some, also after the AWB expired in 2004, Caspian did sell the old style mags for a few years in a black finish and silver. stay away from the original blued mags, those were rubbish Caspian sold a new style mag with a cape base pad, I have some for my 40, and the base pad are great, the rest of the mag not so much MBX currently makes mag that are marked caspian/tangfolio that work but are a bit pricy, you can also get mecgar large frame tanfogilio mag that can be modified to work in a caspian
  18. 1st thing your picture made me drool i never heard of those buffs, I’m going to order a couple to try out As far as your gun, 5906’s are built like tanks all the major components are hammer forged and about the only part that breaks on them are the trigger play spring which takes up the slack in the SA trigger pull the gun works fine without it, so don’t be afraid to shoot it
  19. Yep the Hawaiian reload, shooter with a tan dumps a almost full 170 and watch in horror as it leaves the gun we’ve been shooting open 10 since 94, locally it doesn’t make a difference because everyone shoots 10 round guns. yes it sucks compared to the mainland, but everyone has the same restriction classifier stages, any with more than 11 scored rounds that don’t require a reload, takes a little more effort to get a M or GM score
  20. For travel by airlines various 9mm factory boxes, I found it easier when traveling due to the airline personnel recognizing it as ammo boxes, I’ve had them question MTM boxes. Yes the MTM’s are better, but trying to explain that at ticket counter usually doesn’t end well. I’ve also gotten into the habit of going to the airlines FAQ page, and printing their firearms and ammo policy and having it handy. another benefit of factory boxes is I toss them at the match, less stuff to haul back home.
  21. When I started, we had no divisions, everyone shot heads up, run what you brung, for the official high overall score But we also timed with stop watches, and figured out match results with calculator
  22. My production and SS load is 4.0 gn of 231 under a 135 blue bullet PF at 135
