Sees Target (5/11)

  1. I know. There is a HUGE thread on the best trigger for PCCs. I have found, however, that the best trigger often depends upon the specific bolt you are running. So my question is.......for you GMR-15 users using the JP Bolt Carrier Group......what trigger has worked well? Are there any triggers that HAVE NOT worked well? FYI, my stock trigger is Kaput. So please exclude stock trigger answers. I am looking for a drop in unit. Many thanks, in advance.
  2. I shoot PCC with standard ear plugs. When I shoot .223, I put the over ear protection on and had the same issue as you. I solved this by going to a slightly higher optic mount. The difference between co-witness height and lower third co-witness height is more significant than you think. A "close" check weld vs a "looser" one. It may not work, but it is worth a try if you have a collection of optic mounts like I do.
  3. Thank you. Saw that link. LIttle mention of the Holosun unit.
  4. I have used the Crimson Trace CMR-206 green laser in matches. The laser seems as bright as current laws allow and I am satisfied with the brightness considering. It holds zero really well too. The problem is that I rarely use my lasers in matches--usually only for really big leans where I can't get the rifle on my shoulder. My club has a lot of Open shooters who hate PCC and we do get a number of stages with huge leans or tight quarters designed to trip up PCC shooters (please don't get me started). But when I do use the CMR-206, the failure rate seems really high. Once a battery died on me despite being a new battery and hardly having any use on it. The most recent time the unit just stopped working. With Murphy's Law, both failures were in matches when I needed the laser the most. I have an email into Crimson Trace for warranty and I am waiting a response. The Holosun LS177G is two to three times as expensive. But does anyone have experience with it? Some questions: 1) Is it as bright as the CMR-206? 2) Is it reliable? 3) How is the quality of the mounting? Does it hold zero? 4) How is the battery life? Many thanks in advance!
  5. Hi Mike, Sorry for not responding sooner. I got no email notification. I am at 3.6 grains of N320 under a 147 grain bullet (1.13 OAL). About 142 PF. I recognize that this is pretty stout. I am moving to 3.8 grains of N320 under a 124 grain bullet (1.10 OAL). About 133 PF. all bullets are plated or jacketed. I had ZERO symptoms. I found the broken firing pin when I cleaned the gun.
  6. I ordered two JP firing pins and they sent me a free one under warranty. They are supposed to be the new style. To my eye, they look exactly like my old ones though. Does anyone have pictures (or can you describe) how the new firing pin differs from the old one? My old one (broken) is in the trash.....
  7. If I line up a target at 25 yards and move my head so that the dot moves closer to the edge of the optic.......the dot moves 2 to 3 inches off target. I have not done more experimenting than that.
  8. You can see parallax on any optic. Take your optic off your rifle and put it on your kitchen counter. Line the dot up with a small target. Now take your hands off the optic so it just sits on the kitchen counter and cannot move. Move your head around and look through the optic. Push the dot to the edges of the glass. You will see that the dot moves around and may actually come off the target. Of course, the optic and target are not moving, so what you are seeing is parallax error. It sounds terrible, but it is not as important as one might think. So long as your eye is directly behind the optic, you will never have an issue. But when you are in awkward positions and your eye is not directly behind the optic.....parallax error comes into play. These guys studied this and found that EO Techs were the best for reducing parallax error. https://www.greeneyetactical.com/2017/07/27/comparative-study-of-red-dot-sight-parallax/ Again (before anyone jumps all over me)......the only way this would affect you is if your eye was significantly out of position behind the optic. You will look through your optic and say "whoa this optic is crap" but will rarely be forced into weird positions where this comes into play.
  9. Yes--I love it. Great field of view. Very clear glass. 1 MOA dot, but when you turn up the brightness, it really stands out (very bright). Easy to mount and zero. Great controls. No extra mount needed. Lower 1/3 cowitness height which is great. Great battery life. Downsides. Expensive. Not the lightest option. More parallax than I would like (really only the EO Techs are great here in my experience).
  10. I am new to PCC myself, but the answer is hard leans around barricades. If you are right handed, try learning to the left around a barricade. See how far you can see to the right with your primary optic on top of the gun. Now roll the gun to the right (to expose the offset optic that you don't have) and see how much further to the right you can see. You get a little further around the barricade. It seems like an expensive solution to a rare problem. But my club was previously dominated by Open shooters who like to give PCC shooters a hard time when they design stages. Big left leans are pretty common now. We see them every match. Alternatively, it is a back up optic and can also be set up for a different zero (although I won't go that route) than your primary optic. FInally, if you have to go prone and your big magazine gets in the way, you can roll your rifle over and get a little lower in the prone position.
  11. This is what I am leaning toward right now. Do you like it? Bright enough? Mount puts the optic in the right place?
  12. I run the same CT green laser as you. The issue is that in the bright California sun, I can't easily see it past 10 yards. I am like you--always like the larger dots for our close range game.
  13. Thank you. I am curious if you like the 3 MOA or 8 MOA optic better?
  14. After struggling a bit to do a hard left lean around a corner with a PCC, I have decided to get: 1) An Offset Optic Mount 2) An Offset Optic Does anyone have suggestions on which work best? Please--no debates on the efficacy of offset optics. I am just looking for good product recommendations and the reasons people like these products.
