  1. I just zeroed the gun today, and the rear is almost all the way down. I'd advise anyone to buy the tallest aftermarket sight they can. You can always crank the rear up but you can't go down below the stop.
  2. The LOK grips for the 92x Perf are incredible. Uni-directional grip, super thin, which I like due to the 92X P being a big, fat brick, and absolutely gorgeous IMHO.
  3. Mine works 100% stock extractor spring. Works with extendos with 21 rds as well as factory mags of all kinds. The lever from a current 92 drops in on mine. I used one from a Langdon LTT with no issues but didn't keep it in because the slide is so fat it gets in the way of flipping the smaller disassembly lever. I use a standard 92 with rail holster from Blade Tech with no issues but it theoretically won't fit. Different trigger guard but it works no issues at all. The factory sight is a .060, and it is too freaking big. I replaced it with a Dawson but had a
  4. 92X Perf comes with a grip which is a one-piece and has the old "hump."
  5. I switched to SS last year after Nationals because I wanted to improve my % overall at the next SS Nats. I enjoy it so much that I got a Limited gun coming. More Dakka! I probably will only shoot Minor in 2021 for the CO and 2 gun nats and practice for those. I should have started in Limited, tbh. Might have to switch to SS exclusively if more small primes are not forthcoming after summer. I can always find large primers.
  6. I have two of the Guga Ribas backpacks and they are very nicely made. I can't speak to Safariland, but a DAA backpack I had fell apart. I really wish DAA stuff was generally higher quality because they do have clever designs, but their bag was just poorly made. The Guga Ribas bag is extremely nice, has a generous main compartment, a reinforced ammo compartment that can hold 6 100 ct pistol ammo boxes, four side compartments (two large two small), a sunglasses compartment, mag holders, a pocket to put your gun rug, good shoulder straps (wide, padded), good clips and loops for belt and other acc
  7. I shoot because it is a bit of order in a sea of chaos. It is a martial art, a way to focus mind and body and hopefully to become a better person each day than I was the day before. I shoot local matches because they are familiar and safe. I shoot majors because they are new and scary. I try to meet new friends and be a good friend to people I know because both are hard for me. Shooting is how I focus my external self outward and participate in the world. Also, guns are cool. Shiny guns are even more cool. It's like a magic wand: Pull the trigger and holes appear far
  8. My local matches have all dropped round counts to 16-24 for most stages. We also are seeing more movement and more difficult target presentations. Attendance is about the same as last year thanks to the weather; many people don't want to shoot when it's cold. I think the normalcy of holding matches as if the world is still 2019 has a lot to do with USPSA's continuing popularity, at least in my area.
  9. Jammer1911 that looks hot. Similar to the 2011 magwells. Does it fix insertion angle errors like the big boys do?
  10. Hopefully you can expend some of your ammo hoard and let us know what you think of these mags. I like my Dawson's but taking them apart and unloading them are both annoying.
  11. I live in GA, and we just got mail delivered today, a Sunday. Six whole pieces of campaign material for the Senate Runoff. Im suspecting the USPS prioritizes political stuff (mail in ballots, campaign ads) and de-prioritizes individual mail. Remember, they make the money off large contracts like Amazon and bulk mail. The ballots are gov't money, the ads are massive accounts. Your packages are an inconvenience. My recent order of bullets took one month to get here from Texas. Most of that was sitting in a warehouse in Atlanta. Also, much of the mail service is subcontrac

    stroked

    You can modify the slide travel on a stroked gun by sticking multiple buffers in there. Something to keep in mind if you stroke and wish you didn't.
  13. Personally I found the ICE too wide and it kept messing me up on reloads. I like to get my grip back by sliding my WH up and around the magwell as I seat a mag. The ICE seemed to hang me up all the time. I have a Techwell IPSC shorty right now and I wish it was just a bit deeper. I'm not going to be shooting IPSC ever again (lol @ vaccine passports) so a slightly bigger magwell would suit me. If width is your criterion, go ICE all the way.
  14. @Bakerjd How is the basepad on the Mec Gars? It looks similar to a Dawson basepad. Is it plastic? Does the magazine come apart easily? Can you swap the basepads around, that is, do the Metalform pattern Dawson base pads fit on these new Mac Gars?
  15. I don't like the changes made to CO from when it was provisional. I'm as entitled to my opinion as anyone else. You can agree or disagree but please address my arguments and not show yourself an ass by flinging personal insults.
