Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. AHI i was on target, not fully shouldered. So, not fully ready to shoot.
  2. I have a HYBRID PCC (parts from several manufacturers). I recently changed to the HyperFire PDI-GS. Very similar to the eclipse, except it is a drop in trigger. The pull weight is just under 2 lbs. I‘ve only put less than 500 rounds with that trigger. This last weekend, I was shooting a competition. The angle of the shot made me switch to my weak side (left). As. I was shouldering the PCC I let off about a 3 round burst. Luckily I was on target and no rounds got away, but it was a shock. Not knowing what happened, I dropped out of the remaining stages. After the match, I fired about 30 rounds trying to make it multiple fire. I was unsuccessful. I think what might have happened is that I did not have the PCC fully shouldered and I did a bump fire. Has anyone else had similar experiences? Is my assessment if a bump fire plausible? Is there a way that I should check the trigger (I did check the springs are correctly orientated). Any other suggestions to ensure this doesn’t happen again? ( I’ve already decided to engage rage safety anytime I change shoulders)
  3. I previously mentioned a problem with my upper receiver. The short version is the receiver is right on my bolt (I tries 3 different bolts). Thanks to Dremel I got it working and I’m going to run it for this season, or until it breaks. My PCC is Cerakoted in FDE, so I will be having the new one coated also (I’ll check bolt fit BEFORE having it coated) So, looking ahead, what upper receiver do you recommend?
  4. I had my upper Cerakoted. In the process the coating caused the bolt to bind. I sanded the Cerakote and even into some of the aluminum. I’m concerned that the surface that I’m left, with may not have the proper wear resistance. What do you think? If wear is a concern, the only way to address the issue is to purchase a new stripperAR9 upper. There is not a whole lot available. I’ve narrowed it to Oldin works billet, Arms Republic, and Juggernaut Tactical billet upper receiver. The Juggernaut is available in the Cerakote color that I’d want. The other’s I’d have to have done. I’ve heard of Odin Works, but never Arms Republic. Any experience, pros / cons to any of the products.
  5. That looks similar to the BAD lever. Based on advice of people that I know personally, I decided against any device that is inside the trigger guard. I have a Raptor charging handle & Wilson Combat extended bolt release. That combo works well for me without
  6. I always use the proposed method fo any AR platform firearm. Also, if in a bolt open situation, I simply hit the bolt release gather than running the charging handle. (I don’t shoot IPSC, so I’m not sure if the start is bolt open or closed)
  7. I was trained that the RO should be watching the gun & trigger finger during movement. That makes watching the timer very difficult.
  8. Check with local gun stote that has a gunsmith. Several years ago I had a gas kee loosen on me. I checked with a shop that I’ve dealt with & he did all 3 of mine, using the priory device, for free.
  9. I’ve been told that dots on dovetail plates take more of a beating, leading to early failure. I don’t understand how that could be the case. Has anyone found that to be an issue?
  10. Looking at pros / cons of mounting a Red Dot Sight (RDS) on a plate that installs in the rear dovetail vs having the slide milled. If I go the mounting plate route, I’m inclined to go with EGW. I’used other EGW products and found them to be well made and high quality. Here is what I’m looking at: https://www.egwguns.com/pistol-and-r...dot/?brand=737 The plus is that it doesn’t alter the firearm, it doesn’t require taking my pistol out of service for milling & refinishing. The only con I can think of is it basically puts the sight in a cantilevered position from the dove tail. That is why I think a good manufacturer is important. Milling: pros- a solid mount to slide. Con - shield hast to ne cut & refinished. Milling is for a specific RDS, this might make changing later difficult or require reworking. I’m not sure of cost of milling & refinishing, but the mounting plate is about $50 (it has to be better quality than the $17 one on Amazon) Thoughts / comments / suggestions ??

  12. I guess it depends on how you use the RMR. My offset dot is sighted the same as my scope. My main use is for those hard /awkward leans. In those instances my cheek positioning is already off. fFor that use I find the 45 degree to be better. I’ve settled on the Midwest Industries offset mount. It puts the sight just a bit further out than most other mounts, which suits my intended use.
  13. thanks. Good point on the trigger. I used the G2S because I had one on the shelf, along with a SD3G. Geissele told me the SD3G would not reliably reset in a PCC. I’ll have to look at the trigger suggestions. I know that Hyperfire 24C comes highly recommended, but I’ve seen a couple of guns with those triggers go down. I’m not sure it was completely due to the triggers, but it makes me skeptical. I will definitely address the trigger before I work on short stroking.
  14. Thanks for the helpful info. Yes, my ULW has the removable top ramp. I love the way the ULW changed the balance of the rifle. I believe the 3 stage buffer has an extra spacer. I see the ESS is on sale, so I plan to pick one up. I have spare bolts for all my ARs. I’ve just been waiting for a good opportunity to get one for my AR9. I figure for a few dollars more than a good 9mm bolt, it can’t hurt to go with an ESS. Maybe I’ll just send Tim a note asking for guidance about how to set up the buffer & bolt combo (unless he sees & responds to this post).
