  1. As the owner of a Q5 Steel Frame, I was looking at replacement guide rods and spring options. 3 have presented themselves as viable options. 1 - SpringCo recoil reduction system 2 - DPM Recoil management system 3 - ZR Tactical Solutions Solid guide rod and flat spring The solid guide rod and spring seems to be the simplest solution, what are the perceived befefits of the other two vs the guide rod and spring choice? And what are the differences when using the Spring Co vs DPM? Or is this all silliness?
  2. The only choice that might work and I mean might that I can think of is the Safariland Pro-Fit holster. They list the CZ-75 but not the Tango. I have the long slide and it works for the CZ-75 Shadow. See attachment for the fit guide. Your milage may vary. Pro_Fit_Fit_Chart_12_16 (1).pdf
  3. I use the G-Code bang boxes. I have one for each of the calibers I shoot. Sign up for their coupon codes and wait to place the order. They really are the best option I found. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  4. I can say that you can just buy the die and the powder funnel. The die holds about 7 bullets. This makes placing the bullet super easy, quicker and more consistent than by hand. I did this for about a year. Recently, I got one of the magazine tubes and it is easy and simple. I don't know how much faster it is than just the die. As said above the bullet feeder with collator is where I will eventually end up.
  5. I use the LOK Boggie Palm Swells. They remove skin after about 500 or 600 rounds.
  6. http://benstoegerproshop.com/daa-hornady-powder-funnel-for-double-alpha-mr-bullet-feeder/ http://benstoegerproshop.com/mr-bulletfeeder-by-double-alpha-academy-daa-bullet-feed-die-assembly-only/ I replaced the powder funnel with the DAA one as it was recommended to make things work better. I bought the die only and put it in station 3. (1 - Decap and resize, 2 - powder drop and bell with DAA funnel, 3 - Mr bullet feeder die, 4 - Seat, 5 - Crimp). The bullet feeder die holds 6 - 9mm 125 Grain BBI bullets. So I still have to place the bullets into the die the correct orientation, but the die places them in the case. So it is more consistent and easier for me. I only have to make sure they are going in the die right side up. https://youtu.be/G8p0u7lJg80 Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  7. What he said. And my Lee lasted 6 months, then I went 650. I still use my Lee for load development and bullet changes of small runs, etc. Great initial press. Have fun, read a lot and go slow. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  8. I have had zero issues with the priming system. None. It isn't adjustable like the 1050 but if you are a consistent handle puller it is consistent. Use a bit if case lube even though you don't have to, it makes a difference. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  9. I went with a 650 after a square deal and I am not disappointed at all. I went poor person on the bullet feeder and bought just the die and powder funnel for a Mr. Bullet. Now just dump bullets in the die and it places them, easy and only $90. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  10. You live in a good area for matches. 3-Gun, USPSA, IDPA, Steel Challenge, ICORE you name it there is a match for it. Topton, Ontelaunee, New Holland, Lower Providence are just a few of the clubs within a 90 minute drive. You can shoot a match every weekend if you so desire. Hope to see you around!

  11. Where in PA? Eastern PA there are many active clubs. Topton, Ontelaunee, Lower Providence Rod and Gun Club, New Holland Rifle and Pistol Club. Every weekend there are matches. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  12. I run an ELS Belt for that reason. I like the ability to remove the stuff I don't need for a 3-Gun stage. No pistol, take off the holster. No rifle, take off the mag holder, etc. The ability to easily configure the belt for what I needed was the draw. For USPSA, it works great also. I didn't have unlimited money, so this works well for both games. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
