    Belt Magnet OK in PCC?

    Legal in PCC. I've been using this setup for years. I usually have a 10 round oh-s#!t mag attached.

    Which magwell adapter?

    I believe the Nordic adapter is proprietary to their NCPCC modular carbine.

    Which mag loader?

    I've been using this one for 5 years now and love it: https://www.amazon.com/ProMag-Colt-Magazine-Loader-Black/dp/B005KW45S6 It's around $8.00

    Red Dot on S&W 929

    Check out this thread for a couple of mount pictures: https://forums.brianenos.com/topic/265987-burris-fast-fire-3-on-a-sw-627/ I test a Holosun 507C on my 8 shot for steel challenge. All worked well.

    Hiperfire 24c went full auto... Help!

    You may want to review this doc: https://www.hiperfire.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/HIPERTOUCH_FCG_Trouble_Shooting_Guide.pdf I don't run a Hiperfire but going "full auto" is mentioned in the doc.

    Dedicated lower or conversion

    You can use your current lower with a mag conversion block. Unfortunately a good mag block like the Hahn is going to be around $200 Stern Defense & Sylvan Arms make Glock mag blocks for $120 - $180. I haven't tried them. I have used Spikes Tactical & Hahn mag blocks. You can get a complete PSA Glock style lower for about the same cost as a good mag block. I run Colt mags with a mag block only because I use a registered SBR lower and I can remove the mag block and use a 556 upper. I built mine 5 years ago before any of the current AR9 options existed. If I were getting into the AR9 platform today, I would buy a dedicated Glock style AR9 lower or complete gun. Your budget will dictate the brand.

    Trigger questions for 9mm

    My 223 Timney trigger probably has 10K rounds on it with no issues. I guess you would gain a 1 pound trigger weight decrease for your $170 purchase. If you shoot a lot of matches, it's a good idea to had a spare trigger. And make sure your spare parts and spare firing pin are in your range bag since I've proven that having a spare in your garage does no good when you're at a match with a broken part.

    Manufacturers of 38 Short Colt Brass

    That's strange. I used Starline brass when I shot 38 short colt and never had a single case problem after many reloads. I wonder if you got a bad batch. It might be worth calling Starline to inform them of your issue. Magtech also makes 38 short colt ammo but the label theirs as "38 spl short".

    HEEELP Please - remove handguard guidance

    Use a heat gun or a torch and have patience. Guys heat a bolt for 2 minutes and expect it to break free. It may take 10 -15 minutes of heating for the threadlocker to liquefy. You see wisps of smoke when it does.

    ASC colt style mags loose bullet?

    Yes. And parts of my stainless steel Weber BBQ grill also rust. Florida humidity and sea breezes are tough on metal. From Google for those interested in metallurgy: The chromium in stainless steel when exposed to oxygen in the atmosphere forms a thin invisible layer called chromium oxide. This invisible layer covering the entire surface gives stainless steel its ability to resist stains and rust. If this layer is damaged rust is formed on the surface at the point of that damage.

    ASC colt style mags loose bullet?

    FWIW - I've had the inside of the welded seam rust which causes roughness for the orange plastic follower and can bind. I only use the ASC mags for practice. I only use metalforms in matches.

    Colt Mag seating

    Lowering the front lip wouldn't accomplish anything. See the photo below. With the bolt closed (top photo), the rounds in the mag will bump against the bolt ramp. With the bolt open (bottom photo) the rounds would hit the bottom of the ejector if the front of the mag wasn't already hitting the bottom of the feed ramp. If you're shooting a classifier with a mandated mag change, download the 2nd mag for easier loading. E.g. if you're shooting El Prez which is Virginia count, you only need 6 rounds in the 2nd mag. (I would still load 8 in case you have to eject a bad round or two.)
