  1. Another vote for Master Tac. You can find them on Facebook. Great people to deal with.
  2. Would you mind posting some pics of the finished product?

    X-Carry slide milling

    Are you looking for something like this? I had Vulcan Machine Werks mill my X-carry for a RMR / Holosun and they milled it for a rear sight. They use Glock rear sight as it's a bit thiner than a Sig sight. I'm not sure if they could mill a sight in front of the optic but it would be worth asking them.
  4. Any update on this mod? Brilliant solution by the way!!
  5. I've run 158gr Exreme or 160gr Bayou bullets with equal success. i use WSF and CCI or Winchester primers.
  6. I run a 686SSR with Comp III speed loaders and a holster and speed loader holders made by Master Tac. I run two speed loaders in front of the holster and a third behind the holster. It's simple and it works.
  7. My current set up is somewhat portable. I have my 550 mounted to a base which I put on a bookshelf in my home office when I need to do some reloading.
  8. I have the one from Tandemkross and I'm very happy with it.
  9. I run it on my X-Carry but i'm not sure if it will fit stock mags... I run Spring base pads on all my mags so I can switch between my x-five and my x-carry as needed. Great magell by the way.
  10. I just found this on the Holosun web page: "How do the solar optics work? – In automatic mode our solar optics automatically switch to battery power whenever there is not enough light available to power the reticle. In manual mode, the optic will always use battery power. The “solar panel” on top of our optics is actually a photo-diode array (basically a light sensor). It controls both the auto brightness adjustment and provides solar power to the product. Sometimes our customers try to test if battery power is working by covering the panel to see if the reticle will still be there. The problem with that test is that you trick the optic into thinking that you are in very low light conditions. The optic then lowers the reticle intensity down to night vision mode, which means that the user is unlikely to see the reticle in normal lighting conditions. The best way to test if the battery is taking over is to go into a pitch black room and see if you still get a reticle. (In darkness, you should be able to see the night vision intensity setting.) Since the solar panel is also the light sensor, be careful not to cover it up when testing reticle brightness. Also, keep in mind that the reticle intensity will be set to the lighting conditions of the shooter, not the target. If the target is in very different lighting conditions, you should switch the optic to manual mode and adjust the brightness to the appropriate level"
  11. Serious question, have you ever had to change the battery?? I was under the impression that the solar cell would extend the life of the battery and this wouldn't have to be done all that often.
  12. Couldn't you just order a full set of X-Five replacement sights from Sig and swap them out? Seems like it would take some of the guess work out of it.
  13. True, but for people who live in places with restrictions on what you can own / how many you can own / how many guns can guy in a specific period of time the X-change kits could be a great answer as they are not classified as a firearm... Blaser has been doing this with their rifles and that is part of why they have had the success they have..... That said, for folks in places with none of those restrictions, your observations are spot on....
