  1. I run my Shadow 2s wet, the gun will shake off any excess oil when you shoot it.

    Shadow 2 mag problem

    @KlausN MecGar makes 10 round mags that are full body tubes with indents on the side, so +2 or whatever baseplates don't actually add capacity, but some regions still won't let them in simply because those region's law enforcement think they could add capacity. As well some places a factory 19 round mag is fine, but adding a new baseplate that adds more capacity isn't. Laws are stupid everywhere it seems. So in some places you'll see what looks like an extra capacity baseplate but in fact is nothing more than a larger baseplate, either for ease of handling, looks, or weight, or all of the abov

    @KlausN not all of them are. Plenty in fact, aren't, not everyone is legally allowed to use extended pads that increase capacity.

    man they look like a totally different angle. weird. sorry I totally screwed up and said followers when I meant basebads, are the pads hollow?

    are those followers hollow? does the spring extend down into it? the +2 basepads aren't anywhere near as big as those. Also, how the heck do those even seat in the gun with that weird angle on the basepad?
  6. Dave Bullock of British Columbia, Canada, passed away suddenly on August 28th 2020. Dave had been an avid IPSC competitor for 20+ years and will be greatly missed at matches. RIP Dave
  7. My Orange definitely outshoots any of my other guns, including ones hand fitted and tuned at the CZ Factory for me. My only complaints about the gun are that the rear sight can't be centered or it shoots left (as was determined by the factory), I'd have preferred them solve that with a new barrel/bushing, and the fact that it is not an Arcore only frame. My two hand fitted guns are Arcore only and it is a much much nicer frame and matches the slide so much better. Polycoat blows quite honestly. I've considered sending it out for refinishing but know that I am playing a lottery with what they m
  8. try posting to the Facebook group, Tom and Misty are often there after hours answering questions (don't count on it, but it's often the case, as well there is a lot of community resources there too). If Calibrate wasn't working, could you hit run?
  9. when I clean I detail strip usually these days, lots of lube for thousands of rounds then detail strip, clean, assemble and test before a match. I don't bother with field strip cleaning anymore.
  10. One thing I try to avoid is taking a newly cleaned gun into a match. I always want to make sure it's been to the range and well tested before hand, and not the morning of at a practice bay either. Preferably before leaving for the match if traveling, so that if there is anything I've done wrong, or a part is broken that I haven't noticed, I can discover that before the first beep of the timer and have time to fix and move on.
  11. @jdillon there are numerous replies directly above you from people who got ones that work just fine. Mine works just fine. well over a quarter million primers run through it since I got it, cleaned it a few times now due to Winchester primers that I ran through it for a buddy, which meant I had to reapply Pledge, that's it. Those that couldn't get them to work are in the very small minority. Was it annoying that some tinkering was required to work with some primers? Yes, did Saul address that? Yup, he did and he worked with people to solve their issues too.
  12. The Mk7 comes on a nice aluminum plate that will remove any movement from affecting the running of things.

    I have Shadow 2 Orange, Shadow 2 OR, 2 Arcore Shadow 2s (matched pair with consecutive serial numbers and custom fitting by the factory) and a spare Shadow 2 frame, 3 Canadian Shadowmates (special editions that are basically Oranges) and 3 regular Shadows that have been worked over at the factory for me, a Shadow 2 Kadet kit and Shadow Kadet kit (slide and barrel assembly), 1 P10F and I had a P10C (one of the few guns I sold, hated it). The GF has 4 Canadian Shadowmates , 2 Shadow 2s, a Tactical Sport Orange and a Czechmate I do not like the Czechmate, the TSO is meh, not a fan of
