  1. CMC sells a 2 stage now. You might have received one by mistake.
  2. I have had excellent results with Remington 1200 fps slugs in boths of my m3000's. Both guns have stock parts but do have slicked up actions. I haven't had to shoot enough buck to justify testing any low recoil.
  3. I also suggest using a cable to lock the hard case to the bars inside the suitcase just in case the suitcase busts open. Just a little bit more piece of mind. This would only apply to a pistol case locked inside a suitcase.
  4. It is important to satisfy TSA AND the Airline regs that your flying. As mentioned in several posts here, they are not always the same....err on the side of the more strict rules. I had an experience last year with Delta. The x-ray machines can certainly tell if a mag is loaded or not(inside a metal box). TSA site says OK, Delta regs say no. With Delta the ammo "must be in ammo boxes". The x-ray machines are good and don't assume that your going to get away with anything "stealthy". Think about how your equipment will look when it goes through the x-ray machine. If it's obvious that things look in order, there is less of a chance you'll hear "Mr Smith, please return to to the ticket counter".
  5. Sub'ed to see the outcome of this. I'm very interested in the 8" barrel/BCG combo. Are all you guys running the 16" version?
  6. I replaced one of my M3000 extractors with the M2 at 1400 rounds. It never gave me any trouble, but I did it as a precaution. My 2nd M3000 is still running the Stoeger extractor at 940 rounds without issue. IIRC, the issue is that the metal is a bit sub-par compared to the M2 and therefor may not last as long.
  7. I'm looking forward to this match. I miss this stuff.... I haven't shot a major 3G match since the ProAm last year.
  8. I made two of them on the first go around. They are a anodizer. I'll check with six gun shooter and see if he still wants one.
  9. Thanks for posting all the info guys. I spoke with Dave Manson today and he confirmed that this is a common problem with 9mm rifle barrels. But when I mentioned that my barrel was nitrited, he suggested to find out from the MFR if it's nitrited on the bore/chamber. He said it would be hell to ream a nitrited barrel. But the he recommended a "35 caliber pistol throater" to solve the problem of the premature bullet engagement. He also recommended the 12" T-handle if I didn't want to remove the barrel. Nice fellow and very helpful. He said that the F9MMLUGB (mentioned earlier in this thread) isn't what I need to lengthen the throat. I want my gun to run anything just like my Glocks will run anything. I don't think its asking for too much. I'm slightly interested in sending my barrel to Patriot defense, but I like having the ability to ream more if I need to in the future (if I purchase the throat reamer). I could also maybe recoup the cost of the reamer by offering this service to other shooters in my area.
  10. I didn't think about the case sitting proud of the chamber and the fact that the bolt face is recessed. I'll have to look at this again.
  11. My PCC with Faxon barrel has just over 500 rounds through it and has been trouble free except when unchambering a round. I assumed it was my reloads and was going to order a Manson reamer tomorrow. Tonight I thought I would do the plunk test and sure enough when I drop the bullet into the chamber it stop consistently with the case protruding ~.100". I tried 124 gr Gold Dots, 124gr Nato and 115 gr WWB. All gave the same result consistently. I plan to call Faxon tomorrow.
  12. Thanks for the quick response and info. I will call them tomorrow to order the reamer and maybe the T-Handle. What size square is on the reamer? I have a lathe at work I can use if needed.
  13. I have the Faxon barrel and often have a tough time removing the chambered round at ULASC. It has been mentioned that the Manson reamer can be bought for $40. I can't seem to find the F9MMLUGB for less than $70. Are you guys removing the barrel from the upper to do the reaming? It seems possible to do it with the barrel attached to the upper but might require an extension.
  14. QC10 upper/lower, Blitzkrieg buffer, Geissele trigger, UTG 15" Handguard, Faxon 16" barrel , Faxon bolt Weighs 6.6 lbs as it sits in photo(mag unloaded).
