  1. My son has decided he wants a 3D printer for his model airplane hobby. I am thinking magazine extensions, tool holders, etc., so I’m agreeable. I know little about this sort of thing but am trying to learn. Here’s what I think I want, tell me what you think. I think I’d like the ability to print ABS. This seems to work best with an enclosed printer with a heated bed. I’d like to be able to print things 7.5”-8” long. Hoping to find something of reasonable quality in the $400-$500 price range. The printer of interest at the moment is the XYZprinting daVinci 1.0A or AiO. Thoughts?
  2. I see...I prefer your previous design.
  3. I’d be interested in hearing how you like it. I like the idea of the 10.5”, but the price is high with so few reviews out. My VR80 was 1/3 the price of their upper! And they’re slow to bring out even a 10 round mag.
  4. I use the short Taccom brake on my 8”. I really like it. Unfortunately I don’t think they offer it anymore.
  5. I just cancelled our last indoor match of the season. And the only other USPSA club within 300 miles cancelled all matches until further notice.
  6. Could be a number of things. Check for high primers first, as mentioned above. I bought a used 1911 for cheap that did this. Mainspring was way too short. Swapped it and no more trouble. Contaminated primers, or brass (wet, from wet cleaning and inadequately dried) might do it. I’d suggest an extended firing pin but even a standard length one should be working way better than that.
  7. 5 years isn’t old at all. Age is probably not the problem. Unless there were storage issues. I have CCIs more than 20 years old that work fine.
  8. I’d like to know more about this. Shooting more .22 LR at steel these days. What company, if you don’t mind my asking? PM if you prefer. Thanks.
  9. That was 14 years ago...
  10. Yesterday I changed my email address with the forum...and today only got one notification.
  11. How does the thinnest grip panel compare to a stock sti grip? Stock one is pretty thick already. I’ve been debating buying a reduced grip.
