    Shooting First in squad....

    If the RO’s don’t call the first 1-3 shooters forward to the front of the queue just before the the walk through starts then usually I or one of the other competitors will. The rest of the competitors now know who they are and I have yet to see anyone object when the first couple of shooters on a stage finish a walk through and then ask to cut to the front of the queue again and start another walk through. Common courtesy really and as they say, what goes around comes around.

    Maybe my first problem with my TSO?????

    My range is usually pretty dry and dusty with fine gravel. After a stage I do a quick visual check to see if it looks like the inside of the mag has picked up a coating of dust and then a quick shake to see if I can hear if there is any fine gravel inside. I keep one one of these brushes in my range bag so I can them a quick clean if needed.

    Red dots in the rain

    Thanks for the tip, will do.

    Red dots in the rain

    Yes pretty regularly actually. Something is wrong if it is bouncing around dude. Your belt, holster and gun should be solid.

    Red dots in the rain

    I use a cheap shower cap and have it in my range bag all the time. It also has the benefit of keeping the gun dry not just the lense. I cannot see how how the shower cap could have released the lock without some interference being applied to the lock. It would need to have been bumped at some time (maybe when putting the shower cap on) or the elastic of the cap somehow wrapped around the lock and then the cap stretched in the direction of the release. Maybe it got caught on something that was off your body? Anyway it is something to be aware of, glad it did not end up on the ground.

    IF, I were to buy a Czechmate....

    There are at least 3 different barrel types,

    Brand new czechmate issues

    Check the crimp and OAL. RN or HP projectile?

    Brand new czechmate issues

    I hope that is a dummy round ;) I would shorten the OAL, I prefer less than 1.130. I also run a factory recoil spring.

    Czechmate issue

    Was the follower actually jammed (i.e. you had to disassemble the max to fix it) or were the rounds just sticking in the mag (i.e. they feed properly/better if the mag is shaken or if you press down on the rounds in the mag)? These are the things I would try: 1. Ensure your mags are clean - get a mag cleaning brush if you do not have one 2. Check your OAL - I prefer less than 1.130 for feeding reliability 3. Stop using case lube if you are using it 4. Can you replicate the problem by thumbing the rounds from the Mags? Load the mags and leave them for a few hours or overnight and try again. If the rounds are not rising positively, replace the mag springs 5. Number your magazines to see if you can isolate the problem to a particular mag/mags

    CZ Czechmate light strikes

    Do the rounds go off when you try them a second time? If the primers are high the first strike can be sufficient to seat them fully and then they fire the next time. Individually check a batch of test rounds to make sure the primers are fully seated and chamber check them before firing them. Also have someone else try your gun to see if it is your grip.

    Czechmate barrel failed

    Which edge needs to be chamfered?

    Czechmate barrel failed

    Unfortunately I have added to that collection since that photo was taken - I have another one that is cracked and bent. It was hard to get out of the slide because it was bent and when I had a close look it is cracked almost right the way round. I like to have 3 - practice, match and spare. I also have 4 slide stop pins but I don’t like to use them because they don’t leave the slide back when the mag is empty.

    Czechmate barrel failed

    I got my new style barrel about 2 years ago and it is different to yours so they may be on their 3rd version.

    Czechmate barrel failed

    They crack and bend. This slide stop has a crack almost right the way around the circumference. It was moderately difficult to remove from the slide due to the bend.
  15. Does anyone know if polarised glasses will work with red dots sights, specifically C-More?
