  1. Looks like the links to the classifier stages are no longer working. This will be a problem for people setting classifier stages for the weekend club match.
  2. I've got one magazine with a small crack on the back portion of the feed lip; magazine tube is really old but it still functions. I use it primarily as a practice magazine; I'm not sure that I'd want to take a chance with it at a match.
  3. Lahina Divers was pretty good, but we haven't been diving on Maui since 2010. You should see if the dive company has trips out to Lanai, it may be less crowded than the typical Molokini crater dives. Mike
  4. SV makes a really slick 5.4" single stack. Pricey compared to the other options but worth it. Mike
  5. I've been using the Etymotic gun sport pro. Around $300 and it's worked well for the past 2 years. Mike
  6. Replaced a short flat trigger with the short curved insert. I can get more contact area with the short curved. I'll see if it makes a difference at the range tomorrow. Mike
  7. The SS racer mag pouches are nice. I can easily reach the 5th mag on the belt (30" waist) with the bullet out configuration. However, it can be hard to tighten the pouch to the belt attachment if you don't have a hole drilled to access the attachment screw in this set up. Mike
  8. Just went to the range today to run some rounds through a CZ 452 Scout. Short LOP (12") and easy to tune trigger (replaced the trigger spring and now have a 22 oz. trigger). Fit and finish is first class. Not sure if they have one for a lefty. Mike
  9. A raised magazine release from EGW or Dawson Precision may help. The feed ramp may also need to be re-profiled. Mike
  10. Refinished my Baer TRS with NP3. It appeared to add some thickness to the slide/rails and made the slide/rail fit even tighter. If I had to do it over again, I would only finish the frame and slide. I had the whole gun refinished and the coating on the hammer/sear changed my trigger pull weight. The finish also appears to have worn slightly from contact with the kydex holster. The finish has not worn through, but it appears duller than the rest of the finish. I should also add that Robar's customer service outstanding. Mike
  11. Just weighed my Para Pro Comp .40. With a Techwell IPSC SP magwell it's at 42.25 oz. The Para Pro Comp .40 isn't flat topped which could account for some of the weight. Dawson ICE magwell is heavier than most. You may want to try the smaller Dawson IPSC magwell. Mike
  12. You may want to consider a standard STI grip with a grip reduction performed by an aftermarket company like Advanced Performance. You can also reduce the grip yourself if you have the time and patience to do it. Mike
  13. I checked the IPSC rules but it appears unclear if the flat topped slide is considered a "cosmetic" modification or a "slide lightening" modification. I'm sure that someone has probably used one for the IPSC Nationals. At some point, I'd like to go to one of the larger IPSC matches and shoot in this division. If this feature is permitted, I want to have my other 1911 flat topped and serrated. Mike
  14. I was wondering if the flat top of the STI Trojan slide was considered a "slide lightening" modification under the Classic Division rules. Thanks, Mike
  15. You may be able to use less powder depending on the barrel. The STI barrel in my 5" back up gun seems to be faster than the 5" Scheumann barrel in my Edge. I've run 200 gn. SNS coated bullets at approx. 1.185 over 3.9 grains of N320 out of a 6" Eagle with a stock STI barrel for 170 PF. Mike
