  1. They lost me when they stopped putting sights on their m4s... Like 4years ago... Dumb. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk
  2. I am considering a new shotgun purchase and thinking hard about the versamax tactical. In reviewing the threads in this forum, it is clear that the Remmy had a variety of issues when first introduced. Problem threads seem to taper off in 2015 or so. I am wondering if the later production guns remain as problematic as the early ones. Has Big Green solved the feeding, lifter and other issues or have folks just gotten over them? thanks
  3. acknowledged...did you get any surprises from the data and backchecking or did the steiner reticle line up reasonably well once you had the data in hand. i did something similar with my 7.62 version and had decent results.
  4. Curious about your experiences with this optic and specifically what you have been able to figure out about the reticle subtensions. Not even steiner germany seems to be able to give me a straight answer about the reticle drop dimensions. think i want to run the optic - just not sure i can get the support i need. thanks
  5. I have a Hansen barrel from b.a. on my m4. It's very accurate and very very light. I'm puzzled by the extreme weight of the b.a. creedmoor barrel...it's nearly 5 lbs at 24 inches...that's an awful lot of mass. My bhw creedmoor maten goes about 7/10 on a standard silhouette at 1400 yds at my local range with factory hornady ammo. It cost a whoppingredients 329 bucks. I wouldn't hesitate to use one again. It's a standard hbar profile and remains manageable for field use.
  6. My wait time last summer was three months. They were moving factories and we're not communicative. My 2011 tactical fits perfectly and I love the hood....it didn't work with the hammer down but 20 seconds with my heat gun fixed that. I haven't found a retention holster I like as much.
  7. Winner winner. Material came off rear of hood and tightened chamber. I reamed it, And all is good now.
  8. I have one off a pro.pm me if you want to buy it.
  9. I recently purchased and had one of Barsto's new match barrels installed in my M&P. The smith is a capable and well trained (E8 or E9 Ordnance soldier) with proper machines. I have had great work from him on 1911's in the past and figured this would be a walk in the park. The barrel was substantially over-sized (hood length and width) and required material removal to drop into the slide. The lower lug also had extra material that required removal. The work was done quickly and the lock up feels massively improved. Pistol head-spaced fine and passes all plunk test criteria. Pistol passed a function test into a sandtrap at the gunsmith. On the first outing to the range using a variety of 115gr factory ball loads the pistol will occasionally ftrtb. It will strip a round properly and appear to go into battery, but stops just shy. The typical love tap on the back of the slide does nothing - slide will lock up tight. I can clear the stoppage with a forceful rack or by a 1 handed clearing technique on my holster and continue firing. Every mag or so i get a repeat stoppage. Accuracy is terrific. I come to the M&P from 2011's. I have occasionally run into a 1911 extractor with too much tension or shitty contours that would stop the case lip from sliding up the breech face, but it always happens much earlier in the chambering cycle. Brass looks fine - no signs of overpressure. There are no apparent chamber flaws. breech face and ramp look ok (although i have to say there is a major tool mark in the underside of the top of the breech hood). There doesn't appear to be any vertical fretting on the barrel or breech face or evidence of the extractor fretting on the barrel. The smith is suggesting i run more round through to break it in (which might make sense if taxpayers payed for my ammo and sidearm) and barsto is closed for the holidays. I'd be interested to hear any suggestions or additional things to look for. thanks

  11. I milled my 5.0 tactical to duplicate the rail on my sig tacops 1911. Balance and looks better. It's a very simple machine op and refinishing the frame is easy peasy.
  12. I trust my life to my tacops. I run a duty rig from g-code that fits beautifully. My only gripe is that they don't offer a good solution for rail mounted light bearing rigs. The gun runs like a honda. In around 10k rounds I have had precisely 1 stoppage...a stovepipe with a reload on a wet day during a training exercise. The gun has otherwise delivered usp like reliability and accuracy. It's the only gun I own I have never found dissapointing. The oem checkmate mags are quite reliable, but I prefer the Wilson's for the way they feel when they get dirty. The thumb safety is a bit too small, but robust. The mag well is just ok and could use blending. The oem sights aren't impressive, but a call to 10-8 will fix that. Buy it and enjoy it. They are a steal.
  13. Battle belt with fLat d@rK earthz lollipops and multiglam Cheetos dumps pouch. Do you know where I can get atacs knitting supplies?
