    Open Dot Configuration

    Yes, the offset will be good for your hard leans possibly, but you want your main red dot for slugs. Really don't see a need for a shotgun offset. I shoot open, different mag fed shotgun but have never needed an offset. Remember it has recoil, turning the stock at an angle on your shoulder will make recovering from recoil difficult. Especially for a more precision slug shot. Just my opinion. gerritm

    Drum magazine in a Glock lower

    Never used one, but several guys I shoot with have tried and failed, miserably. We have all gone to MBX or TF big mags. gerritm

    Benelli open vs Dissident Arms

    I have one of the T&N MKA 1919's that does have thousands of rounds and other than normal maintenance parts replaced it has worked 99.9% of the time. I shoot with the Dissident guys and several of my buddies have their shotguns. I don't see any difference in reliability between theirs and mine with the shotgun & mags. I always say 99.9% because nothing mechanical ever works 100% of the time. There are always factors beyond your control. I also run Win AA 1145s. gerritm Funny thing is I got a new carrier and piston as a backup and decided to put them in as a precaution when I did a major cleaning & maintenance last year. It broke in almost the same place after maybe 1K rounds. T&N did warranty it with no problem. Went back to my original carrier/piston combo as has been running ever since. (Knock on wood). Probably has 7K total ( 3- years) or more rounds on it. That is a weak point of the shotgun, but all of them have some kind of weak point. gerritm

    Less recoil on my PCC?

    I have the same JP barrel/comp set up on a Franken rifle I built with a CF handguard. Very light in the front with a Taccom 3-stage buffer, Taccom ultra BCG with weight out running 115gr plated RN Everglades with 3.5gr TG making about 130pf. Recoil is directly back and very little dot movement. This is what you want. I have run hotter PF loads with a small extra amount of felt recoil back, but the dot movement is about the same.Gun is very fast on transitions. gerritm

    frankford arsenal wet tumbler?

    So I ran my first few loads with the supplied SS pins, Armor All & Lemi Shine and they came out great, inside & out. But man sorting/finding the pins war a PITA even with a magnet. Ran the next couple of loads with just the Armor All & Lemi shine and they came out almost as good without the hassle of chasing the pins. Thanks all for the advice, so much better than the vibrator and a lot cleaner inside and out. gerritm

    Gibbz Arms Left Hand PCC

    Here ya go. I did drill and tap the existing mag release to attach. Used blue loctite. Been on for 10K plus rounds. https://www.odinworks.com/XMR_GEN_II_p/acc-xmr-2.htm gerritm

    Gibbz Arms Left Hand PCC

    I have one with about 10K rounds and love it. Put an Odin works extended mag release and it works great. Very well made. No mag well funnel, but easy reloads. Would recommend it highly. Best thing I did was swap over to ambi even though I shoot my AR without the left mag release/safety. Really don't do any on the clock reloads with the AR, but lots on PCC classifiers. gerritm

    Fast vs Slow burning powders question?

    I have been playing around with this for my 3-gun Glock 34 open comp gun. So not worried about PF. Started at 6.7grs HS6 with a 124gr Everglades plated RN. Very harsh, but controllable. Worked my way down to 4.8grs HS6 with same 124gr RN. Shoots soft and enough gas to work the comp. Dot barely moves, and that is saying a lot for such a light gun. Not too smokey or dirty. Very accurate. Still throwing the brass a long ways. Did have to keep re-zeroing the red dot. POI changed. Try some different loads. May have to swap recoil spring out. I am running a 10# spring. Was told slow powders don't work well for minor, but I am pretty happy with this setup. gerritm

    Removing the bolt weight

    Did this to mine with a CMC trigger and Taccom Extreme bolt Did this to mine with Taccom Extreme BCG, his awesome recoil 3-stage system with short stroke kit/weight removed, and CMC strait trigger and the gun shoots flat, very little dot movement with fast follow up shots. Recoil is strait back. Tried several other combos/buffers and loads to find this. It works for me. Load is 115gr Everglades plated RN with 3.5grs Titegroup. Makes PF. Could go with less powder, but this is the load my son & granddaughter run in their pistols for 3-gun & minor USPSA. I have tried lighter & heavier bullets & prefer the recoil pulse of a lighter bullet. gerritm

    HS-6 9mm Minor Load

    I know it is better for major, but have shot a couple of 3-gun/UML matches with 4.8grs HS-6/124gr plated Everglades @ 1.12 OAL and really liking it. Dot movement is good. I will use it until I run out. gerritm

    HS-6 9mm Minor Load

    Me too, hate throwing stuff away and none of my shooting buddies use it. Been doing some testing when I have time. No chrono, but just by feel. down to 4.8grs with a 124gr Everglade RN plated feels pretty good. Going to shoot them in a match and see how I like it. Dot movement was good and recoil was fairly soft. gerritm

    Too much Comp?

    This. Remove the weight. I run a similar load/PF as you. Longer barrel 14.5 pinned JP barrel with their tactical comp. Gun is scary soft very fast, dot does not move & I shoot 1-handed and off shoulder due to being blind in my right eye on hard right hand leans all the time. gerritm

    Everglade Ammo? And Concave base bullets?

    Also, don't forget free shipping. I have shot thousands of their bullets. 115, 124, & 147 plated and FMJ. Great value super consistent & accurate. gerritm

    HS-6 9mm Minor Load

    Being a light long plastic gun sprung pretty soft, I have been playing with some different light HS6 loads, from starting @ 7.0 down to 5.3. Not too worried about PF due to it being shot in 3-gun. Kind of liked the 5.3 and just loaded up some 5.0 to try. Have not done any chrono testing, just doing it by feel, accuracy, and seeing how it ejects. At 5.3grs still throwing it a mile. Will keep trying & see how light I can go, and comparing it to my Titegroup load of 3.8grs. gerritm
