  1. Yes. Be sure that the threads are scrupulously clean and it’ll last.
  2. I have a Gen 3 G17 SJC open gun that I built up from a frame. I built it because I wanted to try out open. I started out shooting minor and then, by changing recoil spring, shifted to major. I picked up a couple of 170mm mags from the classifieds and have one or two extended mags. It has run without issue. It is not the slickest, prettiest beast, but she’s reliable and shoots true. She’s become a safe queen and backup, giving way to a CK 2011 Why did I switch? I never got used to the grip angle and I wanted something that fit my hands better. My G17 cost less than half of the CK. Mags are a whole other discussion. It was a good path for me. I called it “cheap open” before Carry Optics came along.
  3. That’s how it’s supposed to work. Thanks, Brian!
  4. OK, I understand that you are being communicated with about the ticket. They have told you that they cannot duplicate the problem. Being an old software guy, I took that as a personal challenge. I created a new id on the forum with a different email address than the forum has. I loaded Tapatalk on an old iPad that belonged to by better half. Everything new, no leftover stuff from anything before. Guess what? I log into the BE Forum under the new id, go to the classifieds, and the topic list stops at the same place as the iPad I've been using all along. Want to take this offline? Fine by me. Feel free to PM and I'll share the particulars of the test scenario. I also stand by my offer to assist Tapatalk and/or Invision.
  5. Brian, If they can't reproduce the problem and we have many that can demonstrate it, they aren't trying very hard, or they're not playing with the same hardware/software environment that we are. I use tapatalk to access 11 forum groups. Your forum is the only one that exhibits this problem. What I initially reported, it seems, is only the tip of the iceberg and I don't think they're being straight with you. That said, I will be more than happy to work with them to try to fix their code. It is clearly not perfect.
  6. Brian, there’s something really funny about what tapatalk is doing. It used to be that we’d get the spinner, indicating that it was waiting for more data. Now, we don’t get the spinner at all. Seems like tapatalk thinks it’s got all of the data there is.
  7. Machine will perform just fine. 38 Special resize, the rest 9mm. Buttons are for 38Special because of the case. Oh, the case feed adapter is for 40. As someone else said, call Dillon. They will hook you up. Try N320 for powder. It is very cool and clean.
  8. Yes, no continuation to additional pages. Doesn’t matter what topic is attempted.
  9. Brian, tapatalk did an update for iPad. We no longer get the spinner indicating that it’s waiting for more data. Also, this update broke the little blue gizmo that indicates there are unread topics in the thread.
  10. For (1), I used a piece of coathanger wire, bent it around the bolt ( on the right side ) and pulled the case plunger back. Then I bent the wire around the back of the case plunger case. When I want stop feeding cases, I hook the wire around the bolt with the handle down and slip it around the housing. Plunger stays back and no more cases feed.
  11. Thanks, will look for your message. You’re the best.
  12. Great news! Let us know when it hits and we’ll see what’s what.
  13. Brian, It looks like you’re using a browser at tapatalk.com I’m using their app on an iPad or iPhone. Others use the android app. The screenshot I sent was my initial view in the app. I looked at the web page, and didn’t see a way to get where I was without the app. As I said earlier, the cache clear didn’t make it any better. Try the app. I think you’ll find the same issue. Tom
  14. Form the initial page on iPad: “Me” is in the bottom right... ETA: cache clear didn’t help.
  15. At the top, look in the “Me” menu. I found the “Clear Cache” and did it. Didn’t change things.
  16. Brian, that’s a great idea, but it depends on folks monitoring/reading this thread. Don’t know how many do. I do, but I’m just one person. TKH

    DQ event

    I apologize. I glossed right over the IPSC designation in the original post.. I stand corrected.

    DQ event

    There have been several examples in this thread. I don’t mean to pick nits, but the command is ‘Make Ready’. Think about what happens in an unloaded start...

    DQ event

    From the original scenario, the shooter was still at “Make Ready”. The RO did go off script. If he had restarted the shooter with MR, then a DQ might have been appropriate, but... Bogus DQ, in my humble opinion.
  20. Sorry for the empty reply earlier; wrong button... This is the same issue I reported on “Tapatalk- multiple pages” from some time ago. Brian has a ticket with Invision, but not getting any further. I only see it happen on Brian’s forum; all the others I visit don’t exhibit the same behavior. Tom
  21. @benos, any progress with Invision? Still happening...
  22. This on iPad. It affects all topics. I noticed on Classifieds, because it is the only one I regularly visit that goes over 1 page. LMK if you need more info.
