  1. I tried searching but I couldn't find the exact answer I was looking for. I looked at a S2 Orange and it felt really tight and smooth with a good trigger and short reset. What I was wondering is how does the orange trigger compare to the czc shadow 2 trigger as far as double action and single action pull weights? It looks like they both have the same hammer and short reset disconnector. I know the CZC also has a 13# ms, extended firing pin and spring, and 11# recoil spring. Not sure what the Orange has, but springs are easy to change. Anything else that would be different internally part
  2. I use the dual ring die in 45 and 40. I works good. The reason I bought it is because I was getting a bad brass ring where the sizer was pushing brass down the case. I also had a 50% off certificate so I bought a few things.
  3. I don't see why the high round count stages would have an effect on SS popularity. I would much rather shoot 32 round stages no matter what division I'm shooting. It is especially fun with a SS. I liked WSSSC much better a few years ago when they had longer stages. In the last few years they made them lower round count like SS Nationals. High Cap guns are just whats popular now.
  4. 11820 is the PN. If you go to browse pistols is right after the 4" shields.
  5. S&W has a black 2.0 pro series 5" on their website now. It looks good, but will need a different rear sight for sure.
  6. I'm a little confused on which mag tube extension to get. I've got the competition model Do I just buy the nordic nut and a +4 extension to go on the existing 8 round tube to give me the 12 rounds? Or do I have to replace the whole assembly? Or is there something else that's better? Thanks for any help.
  7. Thanks for all the info. I do like the aggressiveness of the PT grip. I'll have to find a Limcat to hold and see how I like it. They do look nice.
  8. Has anyone held or used the Limcat metal checkered grip? Just wondering how it compares to the PT grip for aggressiveness. Also, I'm thinking about getting it for an STI frame if anyone knows how it would fit on that.
  9. When I'm at a match, my 1st stage is usually one of my highest placing stages, the most nervous feeling stage and feels like the slowest stage. Does this happen to anyone else? It seems like the less nervous I get as the day goes on, the more chance I have of getting a mike. My times are usually pretty fast through out the whole match unless I have a major screw up. Any ideas to why this is?
  10. That was me. After I didn't make major, I started using a box of 100 rounds that I had loaded up with RedDot that I knew wouldn't make major and used those. I figured I might as well take some advantage of it. Just happened to get pulled again when I was using them. Not that it would have mattered anyway.
  11. A word of warning. The Canadian Clays is not the same as the old version. I always used 4.1 grs with 200 lswc and always was around 170 pf. I just opened a new can of the Canadian stuff and loaded up the same load for area 2 and it would only make 163 pf, and that was after they had to shoot all my rounds. I specifically weighed each load to make sure that I was at 4.1 grains and I was using magnum pimers. I didn't have time to chrono, and didn't expect it to be that far off. Lesson learned. I'm going to up the load to 4.3 and see if it will work. If not, I'll have to go over max load
  12. It doesn't look like it sits as low in the hand as a glock or M&P. Other than that, it doesn't look too bad.
  13. I don't think you'll develop any bad habits except for doing speed reloads in IDPA. IDPA revolver is six rounds and USPSA revolver is all eight round pretty much.
  14. I wasn't too impressed with the Ruger guns I've checked out. May be fine for a plinker, but not a competition gun IMHO.
  15. I've got egw ambis on 2 guns. They are very positive clicking on and off and are stout. Both paddles come wide and can be ground to your preference.
