  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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 or find another powder.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. That's the same thing I've been thinking. I even emailed Springfield and let them know it would be an awesome product if they would offer full-size and compact versions in 9 and 40. Maybe if enough people let them know, they'll start doing it. I even hinted at a 2011 shorted up like the emp, but I doubt that would happen. I would be absolutely in favor of both. The EMP being scaled to both a double stack and to a full size single stack gun would be absolutely awesome. Those of you who are fine with carrying a stock-length action 1911 on the street, so be it. I would not. An 1/8" jump to the chamber is an awfully long way. I shot two matches this weekend with my 9mm 1911 and it is a joy to shoot, but it is a target gun. A full size EMP would not be though! In fact, if the EMP was available in various sizes and railed/non railed and single and double stack, I'd probably have no use for any of my other centerfire pistols at all. Also the ejection port is the same as a normal 1911, so you have lots of room there, as well as, the same barrels as 1911's. I had a post a while back asking about if anyone thought it would be a good idea to make a shorted up 2011 for 9mm case length and nobody seemed to like it. I think it would be the bomb. For competition, it wouldn't matter as much, but for carry/defense guns it would.

  13. I broke the firing pin in mine after about 12,000 rounds. Probably dry fired it too much i guess. I called them up and ordered the part, along with all the springs for replacement and I had them in about 10 days. That wasn't too bad. I did try to order replacement base pads for the mags, but they wouldn't sell me those by itself. Also the roll pin that was holding the steel firing pin block in came out broken, which I was able to order a replacement for as well. For the price of the gun, I'm surprised how reliable it's been. I still have the stock ignition kit in mine, but I was able to get a 4lb, crisp trigger out of it by only replacing the sear spring.
  14. I haven't seen anyone mention the walther/colt/umarex 1911 22. It's a good cheap 22 that runs on all the cheap 22's I've put in it so far. The slide stop isn't 1911, but all the trigger group, thumb and grip safety, grips, and msh are 1911 interchangeable. I use it for practice because I can set it up just like my competition gun. I would rate it better over the gsg, sig, or the Kimber. The only thing I've found is that the mag base plates break easily when dropped on hard surfaces.
  15. After all these years, I wonder why no one has designed a full-size gun like Springfield's EMP that has been designed around the 9mm case length. My EMP works great and I would think you could do a 2011 that would kick butt. Frame, slide, firing pin, plunger tube and spring, extractor, grips, and mags would be the only parts different. All the rest would be regular parts. You could even make the handle the same as a 1911, or shorten it like they did on the EMP. So what do you guys think?
