  1. Can’t get a 9mm open gun fro SV anymore and the warranty is only 12months. PT will cover their guns as long as the are not modified or abused, period. Those 2 things make it an easy decision to go with PT.
  2. Maybe you see all those other guns having issues because 99% of open gun are 2011s. I’m glad your CZ works, so do most 2011’s. I think 2011’s get into having issues cause there are endless options and people like to change things on their 2011’s and most 2011 parts need to be fitted. Where CZ parts are the same with very few options (Sebo) for change. There’s pros and cons both good with both platforms. Good shooting to you.
  3. It’s just so much better, not to mention easier on a buffing wheel. 3 mins and I’m finished with the mag on the right.
  4. Take a old tooth brush and some fine sandpaper 800,1000 or 1500 depending on the mag’s condition wrap about 1 inch section around bush head and run it up and down the inside of a mag, you might be surprised how unfinished the inside feels before you put a little effort and time into them. For the outside, as long as they drop free and clear (empty) when my gun is just shy of horizontal I just keep whipped clean, unless I’m really board and I’ve done 800 to 1500 and finish with a buffing wheel. PURRR-DIE. rainy weekend today, hit it with 1000 and 1200 grit and 30 sec polis

  6. I can’t say what they have in the works. I’m just sharing the info from an email with EG.
  7. Eric and CZ are in process of updating the Czechmate.
  8. CZ are not American made guns 2011’s are, your comparison would be skewed because of the fact. CZechmate and CZ’s are known best for winning in IPSC countries. Devils advocate. Now that others are cloning the 2011 for the IPSC market, CZ dominating IPSC open may change over time. Plus, I don’t think Eric Grauffel has an issue running the CZechmate.
  9. Not many issue with the new RTS2’s
  10. Take a pic email it to yourself is will ask what size pic you want to email pic a medium and save the pic you sent to your self and post that pic here. Two spring help the extractor grad and hold the case tighter when the gun cycles but if the case is making it to the ejector one may be fine. Some guns like one spring some two springs. Trial and error is part of getting to know your gun. Limited guns in 40 usually don’t have ejection issues. It’s a little different than an open 9mm. I would work on the ejector myself.
  11. Maybe first try to take the thumb rest off and see if the ejection issue stops. I wouldn’t cut it down right away. An ejector cost less than the thumb rest, that’s why I suggest messing with it over the rest. Try to keep it simple

Trial and error is part of getting to know your gun. Limited guns in 40 usually don’t have ejection issues like open 9’s can. I would work on the ejector myself. If the extractor is holding your case good then that Brazo’s article should help with getting the angle of ejection where you need it. When you’re at the range all you need is to remove the top end and a couple of stroke
  13. I just shot my first match with the Romeo3 Max 6moa and I agree the glass is clear, the dot is crisp plus sight window is considerably larger than my DPP. I’ guess I’m luck my that I’ve been running the same DPP since late 2012 on 3 different open guns I’ve owned. I moved to Open back in 2012 and my DPP does look like it’s been on my gun since then too. I did have ONE issue, the original battery failed in less that a month and If the Sig works and last like my DPP, I’ll be more than stoked...
  14. Sounds something like what Mike Alessi’s bro Jeff did at motocross national some years back. Crazy..
  15. No argument about what Max ran or runs but Max wins what Max win, because of Max. He won with Badell’s 2011’s and he is still doing it with a Sig in CO. When Max started his shooting career many of the things we use now weren’t around. If he started shooting and winning with or without something, why would he change what he wins with? He’s tried the metal grip and a thumb-rest but didn’t like them so he doesn’t use them. That exactly what he told us in one of his classesIf. If he started winning with both you can bet he would be running them today on his open guns, If he wasn’t shooting
