  1. Not many issue with the new RTS2’s
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  5. 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...
  6. Sounds something like what Mike Alessi’s bro Jeff did at motocross national some years back. Crazy..
  7. 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
  8. I’ve mount my evil hand way back, toward the grip w/o any issues. I would only do one change/modification at a time and check it with live fire. I’m sure you know, in live fire the gun will do things we can’t duplicate in dry-fire. Most guns need a little fine tuning, including ejection. I’ve heard of 9mm open guns can be finicky with ejection but with my open 9’s, I haven’t had issues that were unique to 9. I did tune each gun to its liking with the ejection and I little bit can change a lot. Just take a good fine file to the range one day and just plan on shooting and remo
  9. Open major to me, there is really no reason to go under 175 and never under 170 PF. PractiScore shows PF of each shooter from Nats, if anyone is interested, Looked like some SV open s hooters ran 180+ PF along with the open shooters from the PT team. Some or often open guns like the higher PF, it seems to clam the dots down especially with the 124’s..
  10. DAA. I still have my original DAA from 2015 and it still works fine but I’ve been running the AlphaX this last year. No complaints.
  11. I’m glad Bob took the time to write all these articles for mags. Really good info
  12. 1911store.com is where you can find those old but very informative Brazo’s magazine articles. Lower left side of the 1st. page. Good luck
  13. it’s one of those situations where the guy that actually builds the HONCHO offers info and the shooters do as we choose.
