  1. Hi whats the model # of your Switch view lever for Swarvo 1-8, thanks
  2. do you mind posting the model# of your GLS, mine is a 2011 SDC ( Eagle), is the GLS compatible with ELS or Boss Hanger. thanks
  3. Just a follow up, without the boss hanger, can I attach the ELS fork directly to the Bladetech Holster
  4. I using the the Safariland ELS for my Shotgun and Rifle, planning of getting a Bladetech Holster for my upcoming STI Eagle , my question is whether the ELS fork is compatible with Bladetech holster. thanks
  5. I have been searching for this kind of topic. like many I"m too has this problem. , is it because the rifle a little front heavy? dont have a very strong support arm. The bbl I have right now is the Rainere Ultra Match 18" at 2lbs and 3oz. If I can get a bbl around 1.5-1.6 lbs maybe it will help. Faxon Gunner 18" is around 1.6lbs if not mistaken. Thanks
  6. For Retention they are great, sizewise a little bulky, as mentioned above, you have to adjust the "lenght" to a specific Brand or type of Shell. Price- oh well just dont tell your wife
  7. Also having issues with my SBE2, the lifter sometimes stays up when I cycle the action, check the BROWNELS parts, There are 2 Carrier Springs listed, which one is the 1.6" which you Gents is recommending. Thanks
  8. Alaskapopo I have a question about the BTF on your scope, it is necessary to install the "rings" in order from the closest zero distance to the farthest zero. correct if I'M wrong, although dont have the BTF yet still in the plan, my original Zero is at 50 yards and want to keep it this way, planning to put the first ring for my 25 yard. and the rest of the rings from 100-200-300 yards respectively. So the order of would be 50 yards, 25, 100, 200, 300 yards. Thanks
  9. Tired of hitting those penalties, scoring targets with a diameter of 3" surrounded by NO Shoots set up at 10yards to 25 yards. Right now the I have the Swarvo 1-8 and zeroed at 50/200 and it works for me great. So my problem is on the closer targets, the mechanical offset is around 2.75". So whats the best combo that will be compatible with my main optics, my main concern is the room for the mount and RDS especially the some RDS have their brightness adjustment on the left side. Planning to install the RDS at the rear closely side by side with my main optics. Warne 45 dgree/ vortex venon/viper combo is whats on my mind, maybe you can add your advice and suggestion. Thanks
  10. Since we're talking about neck, my follow question is .252" neck OD that is less 001" of the Saami Spec (.253")of neck OD good to go or should I go for a crimp to .250"-251"
  11. Thanks, email on the way, btw, when you say I cant use to size the body and shoulder, even without the decapping pin assembly?
  12. Hello, Without the Decapping Pin Assebly of my sizing die, Can I still use the die to size just the body/ shoulder without the neck sizing? what happen was a case got stuck on the die and I cant remove the case, tried all the methods, and secondly might had damaged the Decapping assembly. Managed to acquire locally a Forester Sizing Die, although it chambers using dummy rounds, it doesnt fully seat with my JP ammo gauge. Brass that was sized by Dillon drops freely on the JP gauge. Not sure if I can send the Dillon Die for repair, then again its not practical for shipping since I'm in Canada.
  13. OP you mentioned it doesnt pass the JP gauge, but does it chamber on your rifle. I just switched to Forster FL sizing die from Dillon, nothing wrong with Dillon die, it just out of sevice temporarily, and the brass from Forstyer doesnt fully go down using my JP gauge but will go in all the way with Dillon gauge. Test fired the ammo using the Forster die and all chambered 100%. The brass that was sized using the Dillon die will all drop straight to my JP and Dillon gauges.
  14. Just installed an Odin Adjustable Gas Block to my 18" rifle lenght bbl ( 223 wylde 1: 8) , Also Reduced Power Buffer Spring and a Lighter buffer, full mass BCG was used since my ordered Low mass BCG is still in the mail.. .My ammos shoots differently than it use to be, for examble, before my 55 grs doesnt groups better than the 62 grs., now its the other way around.This happens when some gas restriction on the GB was applied. Is it maybe that the extra gas or pressure went to the bbl instead to the bolt.
  15. Which would prefer and why? Primary purpose as secondary sight to be mounted on 45 off set mount. Thanks
  16. Jack, my pistol 2011 in 9Major is set up as permanent, Im more interested on my Rifle which has 1-8 variable. thinking of installing a RDS as secondary sight for close range targets to get away with "scope over bore" . Old dogs never learn new tricks?
  17. Hi, whats the consensus on where to mount the RDS , 45 deg?, whats your opinion mounting on top of the main Scope, with this set up I dont have to tilt the rifle at 45deg. . I will be put in the Open Div. doesnt matter since my pistol is Open anyways. thanks
  18. also interested in Faxon, its only the Lightweight BCG I can get, . thanks
  19. thats true, more pricey, But out of curiousity with my Borka Torque Limiter ( 65 inch lbs) , tried to test if it will return to zero after 2 times of on/off to my upper, honest to say that it did RTZ. I'm sure other well known mounts might also do the same. well I dont usually buy new toys that much often, should be good for next 5-6 years. btw, got the mount when Geissele had 25% sale.
  20. muzzle going sideways to left, the up/down is okay
  21. I am using the slimmest of their pads, it measures around 13 7/8", personally I prefer 13.25" LOP, Tried using the Limbsaver before with my 1301, didnt like it, a little bit sticky when shouldering, maybe for Trap or Hunting is fine. . Unfortunately dont have the budget to buy the Compact model. if not mistaken it will have a 13 to 13.5 LOP.
