  1. Sorry used the wrong abbreviation (effect of too much googlin). it is an MPX specific mag release. I got it from Springer Precision. https://shop.springerprecision.com/Odin-Works-Sig-MPX-Mag-Release-MPX-MR-MPX-MR.htm It does seem to be breaking in and working better.
  2. Just ran 300 Blues 125 TC @1.135 with no issues. May try 1.125 next.
  3. Switching to Blue Bullets 125 TC for my CZ S2 CO and MPX. The CZ will run a TC at 1.100, but this seems too short for the MPX (Gen II), as I get the occasional FTF jam. It has been rock solid with Zero 124 RN at 1.100. I have some BB 125 TC loaded up at 1.135 and will test those in both guns today. Just wondering what others have found to work in their MPX?
  4. Cool, thanks. First I have heard of the shoe being a problem. Will have to look at mine closer tonight.
  5. Running the Hyperfire Competition trigger (formerly 24C) in my MPX, probably 6K rounds so far, no issues with the firing pin. @Chillywig Can not run the trigger shoe due to rules? Must have missed that one. Reference please?
  6. Just put an Odin Extended Mag Release on my Gen II MPX. I'm still kinda iffy on it, though I have only dry fired a little bit with it so far. The fitment has me a little puzzled. I had to back the mag release screw out 2-3 turns from flush from the button top in order to get the mag to release. Any further in and the right side paddle interferes with the lower and will not drop the mag. If the paddle were angled away from the lower (like the left side paddle) instead of into the lower, it might help with this. With it backed out so that the mag freely drops, it feels like the button may be out too far and may not have enough support from the lower. I lubed it wet, and that seemed to help some. Maybe need more break in/dry fire/etc. Anyone else run into this? I plan on contacting Odin today and see what they say.
  7. For my CZs (S2 and 75) I load them to 1.100. This is with Zero 124 RN, BBI 125 TC and Blue Bullets 125 TC. This is mostly to ensure they will fit in the EGW gauge, however CZs are known for a short throat. As stated above, you need to do the plunk test for your barrel to see what your gun likes. Keep in mind, start with an OAL that plunks and feeds well, then start with a low powder charge and work your way up. A chrono is a must have.
  8. I ran into same thing using same EGW gauge, using Zero 124 RN and BBI 124 TC bullets. Loaded to 1.100 resolved that. They would plunk just fine in my CZ S2/75 barrel, but not the EGW gauge. If you dont believe it, do the magic marker test.
  9. S1050 with a Rev2 Ammo Bot, loading 9mm Minor. Some thoughts below, given my transition from LNL to S1050 and the AB: - Suggest you set your press up and run it manually first to fine tune it, work all the kinks out, etc. If you run it automated from the get-go you will have all kinds of issues. - I have been very happy with the Dillon dies. I like the fact you just pull a pin and the inside (seat stem or crimp) falls out for cleaning, clearing obstruction, etc. I have tried Hornady, RCBS, Forester, etc. Dillons work for me. - Loading 40 you wont have to worry about large/small primers like 45, so not sure how much a primer probe sensor will help you, assuming you do not process your brass first. - However, loading automated with processed brass (at minimum decapped) will make the process sooooooo much smoother. I strongly recommend processing your brass first, for many reasons. Besides smoothing the loading process, it is a great time to weed out the odd piece of brass, or rubber crap that might get stuck in a case and never comes out when tumbling. I process all my brass first, using the primer pocket probe (detect primer pull backs), and The Judge die with sensor (I LOVE this die, it works GREAT!!!). - If you process your brass, you will want a separate tool head. Swapping tool heads just takes a few minutes. Also suggest after processing your brass to do a deep cleaning/greasing/lube of the press, as it gets really nasty. Loading processed brass, not so bad. - I have been using the stock Dillon shell plate to process and load, with no issues. I did recently pick up a TNT plate from a member here, but have not loaded on it yet - will very soon. - Sensors, parts, etc, are avail from http://immortobot.com. I load with the DBOS and SSCD sensors from Mark/Immortobot, they work great! That's it off the top of my head. Fell free to DM me if you have any questions.
  10. I asked a buddy of mine that does a LOT of RDS training, same question a few months ago. Duracell, then Sony. Energizer QC is crap.
  11. I had a couple of odd malf with a particular mag. Thought I would try new springs first. Anyway, decided to make it a 40 mag, ordered a +10 base pad and several 24 coil springs from Springer. Already have a mag with the +10 and extension (47 rnds) so it will be good to have this as a new primary mag.
  12. Is there a source for replacement mag springs for the 30 rnd Gen 2 mags? Besides just buying new mags. Just need some mag springs for the stock 30 rnd mags. So far my googlefu is coming up empty.
  13. A few years ago I had a lot of squibs and soft loads after I switched to wet tumbling. My drying process was not adequate. I wound up splitting a barrel cause I didnt catch a squib. Ugh. If you dry with the primers in, the goop will tend to glue the primers in which causes other problems. I dont need shiny brass, so I switched back to media tumbling.
  14. Currently loading BBI 125s at 1.100, mixed brass, crimp avg is .3765 (IIRC) Since mixed brass, this varies, but seems to average out. Been my target crimp for every type of bullet I have loaded for 9mm, including Zero RN 124s. The EGW gauge is a little tight. The crimp is supposed to be just a taper crimp, just enough to remove the bell. I like to see a very faint white line on the edge of the case mouth. Loading pistols and rifles aint the same - obviously. Pistol bullets use next tension and not crimp to prevent setback. Just make sure they plunk fine in your barrel, then go shoot them.
