  1. What kind of custom 2011’s do you have?
  2. This post ties in perfectly with the post about STI changing its name and changing it’s focus away from the competition world. Competition shooters are more likely to identify the less than stellar quality STI has come to be known for. They also shoot enough, to experience the quality/longevity issues that require warranty work, which costs them a bunch of money. But in-terms of this gun, whether it’s new or used is irrelevant. That barrel isn’t timed correctly! And is going to need to see a qualified gunsmith, or you might be purchasing a new slide and barrel after it sears off the
  3. Here’s going to be the arbitrary question....how much “rise or retracts” is enough? Depending on the sear nose angle and hammer hooks, a 1911 trigger pull can “technically” move the hammer alittle before falling. Same goes for an AR trigger. Looking at the design of the Alien trigger, the way the sear moves, I’d bet the hammer moves back ever so slightly . I doubt this type of trigger is what USPSA originally intended in Production....but just saying. Now USPSA could go the route of the Production rifle rules in PRS and put a MSRP price limit.
  4. So my CZC hammer is contacting my frame under recoil, which means (I assume) the slide is producing enough reward velocity that it’s “throwing” the hammer that extra roughly .040” to contact the frame. I’m running Atlanta Arms 147gr Elite (133pf in my G34), an 11lb CZC recoils spring and 12lb CZC hammer spring. I know these are lighter springs but nothing out of the normal for what a lot of guys are running. Any ideas, worries? I can relieve the material on the frame, so the hammer doesn’t contact anymore, but hammer would still be coming off the back/bottom of the slide.
  5. You’d be a good one to compare it to an S2

    I tried the Springer and it fit poorly to my gun and they wouldn’t honor their satisfaction guarantee with a refund, so I’d advise to try one of the other popular magwells.
  7. So full story, I called SP about their newly redesigned CZ magwells. During the conversation, I was informed that my Taran basepads may not work, which I was fine with, because I was sure I could mod either the basepads or magwell to work. He told me, if you mod the magwell, I wouldn’t be able to return it (obviously). I order and get the magwell installed, and don’t like the way it fits me or the gun. Essentially the magwell doesn’t screw flush with the bottom of the frame. It only contacts a small part of the front lip of the frame/front strap and a .150” x .600” pad in the rear (by design).
  8. And how many are bone stock, running stock mags with stock ammo? We’re talking about LEO firearms in this discussion. Most departments are required to run their firearms in stock configuration; one for liability reasons but also because they don’t have anyone with the ability to truly work them over. That’s why I said pretty clearly “maybe custom or tuned 2011”. I’d never carry a 2011 by choice as my duty gun, mainly because of the weight and bulk. Having said that, I’d trust my custom 6” Limited gun with 1.180 ammo, my clean tuned STI mags with gram followers any day over my curre
  9. STI’s aren’t the mot popular gun in competition, maybe custom built/tuned 2011’s but not stock STI’s. There’s a reason why guys spend $4k+ on a custom built 2011, $125-150 on tuned magazines, load or order custom ammo with longer OAL, case gauge all their ammo (atleast for majors), throw new springs in the gun/magazines before majors, tear their mags apart and clean them after every stage, and many other small little things that comp shooters do that the average LEO just doesn’t do or even understand. There are threads upon threads, of people having issues with their
  10. From someone that competes/loves my custom 2011 and carries a gun for a living. I don’t understand the desire to care a 2011 as a duty gun, but to each his own.
  11. If you were to machine the receiver to accept the Ethos oblong button vs the M2 round button, could you run a 2 piece ethos latch in a M2? I see in ROTH’s custom M2 receiver, you can run either, but not sure if there’s other mods going on.
  12. Can anyone else name a 3 gun dedicated/directed shotgun (factory or gunsmith built) advertisement that doesn’t show a picture of the loading port? Good job Beretta! “We have this much bigger and better loading port...... but we don’t we show you”

    Other than Springer, does someone make one that allows you to run factory length grips? I’d get the Springer, but they state it only works with their base pads and not interested in running their base pads.
  14. Still working on it, it’s headed back to him in the next few days.
