  1. Probably nothing, but in my mind it lessens the resistance for the firing pin to travel forward, while still having plenty of power to retract.
  2. Whenever I bring a new Buckmark into the competition rotation, I make sure I change the extractor. If your trigger doesn't have one, an over travel screw. I also cut about 1/3rd of the coils off of the firing pin spring. Polish the firing pin til it's silky smooth. Red loctite on the front screw for whatever style sight/mount you use, and blue loctite on the rear screw.
  3. I run a Foxtrot Mike with Glock mags. It's been perfect.
  4. Can anyone point me towards a gunsmith that can cut a 16 inch MPX barrel to around 6 inches and permanently attach an aluminum sleeve so it will fall within Federal guidelines? Thanks, Doug
  5. I need to send my MPX back to Sig for a going over. My question is, do I need to remove my aftermarket race parts, or are they okay with it the way it is? I don't want to get "Rugered". I know they will tell me when I call them, but I'm wanting to know now, if anyone has experience with this. Thanks Doug
  6. My Sig MPX PCC Competition is about 5 months old and has probably 2000 rounds through it. I load 115 grain bullets over Win 231 powder. Here's my concern. I was shooting the other day and everything was going along smoothly for the first 2 magazines. On the 3rd magazine, I begin missing targets that I'm sure the C-more was on (Steel Challenge plates). I go back to the bench and re-zero the gun and procede to shoot more. Again I suffer questionable misses. I checked the gun over and didn't find anything loose or out of place. I examined the C-more for a loose lens or dot module, along with mounting screws, and everything seemed okay. I re-zero again, and I notice the the dot in the glass, instead of being close to in line with the muzzle, seems to be about 2 feet to the right. I took the gun apart and did a more thorough examination and noticed that about 5-6 inches from the end of the muzzle, there is a "dip" or very slight bulge in the rifling. I can barely feel it on the outside of the barrel, but it is there. Is this normal? Is this the cause of my flyers and accuracy problem? Thanks, Doug
  7. Ever since I handled a friends' CK Arms PCC carbine, I've lusted to own one. Problem is, they've been out of stock for a while now. I tried emailing the company, but got no response. Does anyone know when the PCC carbines will be back in stock? Thanks, Doug
  8. I'm looking for recommendations for 115 gr. Steel Challenge loads with Sports Pistol powder. I'll be shooting a Walther PPQ 5 inch polymer frame. Thank you, Doug
  9. It sounds like your rear screw is torqued down too tight and is restricting your slide movement. Try loosening it up a little and see if that helps.
  10. I went to Academy yesterday and bought the Oakley M frame Ballistic SI with the Prism T22 lens. I need an RX insert, but so far they look good.
  11. I shoot Steel Challenge almost exclusively these days. Open guns, white targets against earth/dirt backgrounds. Any recommendations for this situation?
  12. Hi Todd, I'm interested in 5000 pieces of 9mm brass. Thanks, Doug
  13. I load 3.9 grs. of Titegroup with a 115 gr. plated bullet at about 134 PF.
  14. Thanks everyone. I was afraid it would be crimped. I live next to an Army base that is auctioning 1612 pounds of 9mm brass, and I was considering bidding on it. The fact that it has crimped primers is a deal breaker for me. I appreciate everyone's input. Doug
