  1. I'm very happy with a recently bought (new production) Mossberg 930 JM Pro with all the OR3GUN upgrade parts installed (their competition bundle with the blue parts). Runs excellent with various Walmart/Academy discount shells, but you still have to clean it. Nice setup for the $'s. FYI, mine came from factory with good shell stop (didn't need any filing/polishing). There's plenty of posts on-line about this shotgun's earlier problems (seemed like mostly some cheap parts and QC issues from the factory), but I think it's been worked out by folks like OR3GUN and others, I hope...
  2. I bulk buy REM 124 HP and 125 FMJ. They have always run excellent in PCC and various pistols, even seated a bit short. I like the HPs and full jacket too.
  3. Just looked at Powder Valley's site (look like they change the web-frontend) for some Varget and they wanted $185 for 8 lb can and $171 for IMR 4895, which I could stomach a little better. Just for grins took a look at Midway's site and they wanted $209 for Varget. Guess prices never really came down since the last shortage/run? Any suggestions for better deals? Even the pistol powders like Clays seem very high.
  4. 1. 16" Faxon, no brake or comp, NFA upper/lower, JP SCS-bolt-trigger 2. 115gr JHP Rem, .355 3. 4.0 HP-38 (chrono broke so not sure PF) 4. Various primers 5. ~1.110-1.115 OAL (runs extended Glock mags fine) 6. 99.99% at couple thousand rounds plus 7. Very tight at 17 yards off rest 8. OK, probably could do better with more tuning or better shooter (I get pretty sloppy in hoser mode)
  5. I have never seen or had a PCC reshoot for lack of timer shot(s) pick up. I'm sure it happens, just never seen one. I don't have a comp/brake either.
  6. My limited experience with the heavier factory 9mm PCC buffer/spring combo (i.e. the spring/buff that came with Lone Wolfe and NFA lower) is they would bump fire sometimes in matches when in hoser mode (a couple time per match). As discussed else where here, some folks like and practice it. I couldn't get it to occur on command very well, though didn't try real hard. When I first installed the JP SCS system with the 110% 308 spring it came with, I still had few bump fires. Lightening the weights in the SCS and using a 100% 223 spring seems to have eliminate it (with mouse fart 115 load). FYI: There was also more felt recoil and dot bounce with the heavier spring/buff combos for me. There's a lot of variables here to ponder.
  7. What advantage are you seeing pre-loading the recoil spring that much?
  8. The new True Glow with QR mount seems to be holding up good (couple thousand rounds so far), very light, has nice bright dot and way less expensive than the MRO. I have an MRO on a 223 and it's excellent too and will probably hold together a very long time. Guess it would be advisable to have BUIS just incase or an extra dot to slap on for big matches.
  9. JP is great trigger for PCC, even if it's a tad heavy. Makes for better more positive reset. Jerry M runs extra heavy trigger reset/return springs in his revolvers, he says it's needed for fast shooting (so the trigger keeps up with his finger).
  10. Dawson extensions (Brownells has them fairly reasonable) work very well (perfectly so far ~2000 rounds) in 17 and 33 round Glock mags (use the kit spring in the 17s and the factory spring in the 33s). The TF 41 kit is excellent too.
  11. I tried 4.8gr of Loud-shot/Longshot (load from JP article) with 115 FMJ-HP and 124 FMJ and tried many different spring/buffer combos (no muzzle device). It always felt like more recoil & bounce no matter what configuration as compared to my WIN231 minor load (same projectiles), which has bit of recoil but very little bounce (also switched to JP's SCS). Thinking of leaving the thread protector on for now, kind-a like the light muzzle end with 10" ALG for quickness .
  12. Does anyone use a 9mm PCC muzzle brake that they think actually works (i.e. recoil/bounce control from gas porting) rather than being a barrel weight? I see some really large ports in brakes being used. Seems like a smaller port might better utilize the smaller amount of gas available? Anyone using open pistol type brakes on their PCC? I'm looking for something to screw onto a 16" Faxon which has 1/2" 28 threads. I guess the question is what is the best purpose built 9mm PCC brake, if such a thing exists?
