    Why no 42 round magazines?

    I've always wondered why ETS doesn't make a longer magazine, too... They recently came out with 140mm and 170mm magazines for Limited and Open... I suspect longer PCC magazines will be available soon... In a world where a 31 round ETS magazine is $21 and a TF 10 round extension is $60... ETS could make a killing charging $40 or $50 bucks for a 41 round magazine...

  3. They meant ejector... and I think they were thinking of a .223 ejector that is part of the bolt... Most 9mm PCC bolts use an external ejector that's part of the lower.
  4. Not sure what you mean by tuning the extractor to the bolt?
  5. I have a Taccom Extreme Bolt in my PCC Ar-9 rifle... Works great... I've replaced several firing pins, but never messed with the extractor. Had a small jam where a couple or rounds bunched together by the chamber, so I thought I'd take the extractor out and check things out... Didn't realize that there is an opening under the extractor that goes down to the firing pin... Built up carbon can/could rub on the firing pin... Cleaned that area out. Also found an O-Ring and a black Extractor insert grouped with the extractor spring... The O-Ring was chewed up, so I removed it, but replaced the black spring insert... That really increased the extractor tension and made things worse, so I took the black extractor spring insert out and replaced the extractor with a new one along with a new extractor spring from Brownells. Just found out that Brownells sells the black extractor spring insert... and that Bravo Company USA sells the extractor, spring, and insert as a kit. What's the best way to set up an extractor on a Taccom Extreme 9mm Bolt? Use the black extractor spring insert... use the O'ring... and special brand?... Anyone make a jig to tap in the roll pin?

    If all else fails, get a micro torch... Home Depot or Leows...

    Blitkrieg buffer failure

    I'm currently using the JP 308 springs because they are supposed to be quieter... Thinking about trying one the the Sprinco Orange 308 carbine springs... They are supposed to last longer... Will probably get another JP 308 rifle spring at the same time, as I have lots of rounds through mine. Curious to see how you like your new RB5015HD buffer... Did you get one of the weights, too?

    I'd probably go with a cut up, reversed standard buffer if I was going to go that route... With no bolt or buffer weights, I run a lot of spring pressure... I've been running a rifle spring until recently when I made a slightly longer delrin spacer... It seems to shoot as well with a carbine spring as it did with the rifle spring, so I switched to that... Would like to try one of the new RB5015HD buffers.

    Yes... Removing the Bolt weight and replacing it with the Blitzkrieg spacer (that weighs the same) would keep the overall buffer/bolt weight the same... That alone wouldn't provide any real value... However, you could use the new Blitzkrieg spacer to also short stroke the bolt. Most of the PCC shooters I know don't use the standard bolt weight... This new Blitzkrieg weight/spacer makes it easier to test with and without the weight at the range... you'd have to make an alternate delrin spacer to account for the length, but that would be easier than pounding out roll pins at the range.

    Good catch... I looked a few days ago and it was not on their site... This appears to be what Max is currently using. Funny thing is that it is exactly the same weight as the bolt weight that came with my Taccom Extreme 9mm Bolt...

    I am diving into the PCC pool

    Sweet... Pretty intricate part when you look inside it... How long did it take to print out?

    Am I too old?

    Never to late... See if one of your ranges has an "Intro to Action Pistol" class... +1 on start with Steel Challenge... It's lots of fun...

    Several of us are running Vltor A5 receiver extensions so we have room for longer buffer systems... It's about 7/8" longer than the standard carbine extension... It helps if you want to run multiple delrin spacer and wave spring combinations. Check your trigger reset point... Empty gun... Pull the trigger then pull the charging handle back slowly... Listen for the click... That's where your trigger resets... Continue to pull the charging handle back and that's the amount your bolt goes back past the trigger reset point... I'm about 1/2" past the trigger reset point now and my rifle shoots well and is reliable... Other people might be closer... It depends on your load... springs... etc... Lots of testing in the PCC world.

    My Blitzkrieg buffer has "P/N RB5007" stamped on the side of it... Yours might have the part number stamped on it, too... The RB5007 is 3.96" long... I seem to remember the earlier buffer to be shorter, but it is no longer on the Blitzkrieg web site.

    https://www.blitzkriegcomponents.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=RB5015HD Looks like the RB5015HD is available from the Blitzkrieg web site now. Not sure if this is a beefed up version that Max has been testing or just hydraulic dampening and internal spring changes.
