  1. Would anyone happen to know the glass lens dimensions of the springfield armory hex dragonfly red dot optic.....not the footprint or unit dimensions....just those of the glass itself. thank you
  2. Sinister, sounds awesome.....i'd sure love to see a photo of your build if possible.
  3. anyone have any experience with the Bushnell RXS250 ? would it compare well to the aforementioned or would it hold him back?
  4. My Son loves the p226 and he wants to start competing in steel shoots. he's quite serious and very safe. i'd prefer to cry once rather than purchase something he'll rapidly outgrow but i wouldn't mind not throwing money at bling. We would sure appreciate any guidance. My Son showed me photos of a Holosun 509 series as well as the large red dot that was on Max Michel's pistol but honestly i know so little about all of this and we're open to any and all brands and models. thank you.
  5. thanks for the tips....we're both working hard to improve
  6. very cool....kind of reminds me of the sit match master
  7. read good things about them.....there's a nice promotion going on right now where they give you an extra stock and fore-end ...(i saw it posted on the Europtic website)
  8. thank you...i understand to answer your questions (my friend and myself both took classes from the same instructor so i refer to us in the plural).....after removing the pistol from the holster, having brought it up to eye level and pointing at the target....only then do we begin to prep the trigger as we are extending our arms. after discharge/firing the cartridge and as long as we're on a target we do then steadily release tension on the trigger till feeling the reset point. perhaps our pistols have a more distinct reset point? i very appreciate the help and information
  9. I had the opportunity to fondle a couple of Bruce Gray's p320s.....full on open customs with with their awesome Tungsten infused grip, Bar-Sto barrels, amazing trigger. That gun felt so nice in hand, it balances beautifully....I was very impressed and at least for myself, the grip blows away even the Wilson frame. I also had a chance to play with a couple of production and limited type models. It was cool to review the evolution of their p320 parts. A really great experience, spoke with some of the steel / speed shooters as well who were very pleased, they were hammering with the pistol. Mr. Gray has an incredible understanding of that platform and really delved into the workings of the pistol and optimized it well beyond i would have thought possible. I would love to get my hands on one. Their warranty is incredible as well.
  10. it's tough to change......i think we both strongly internalized prepping the trigger, surprise break...bullseye shooting fundamentals. appreciate the help
  11. thanks for posting that....Ian makes a lot of interesting videos. would be nice to see the development of features that would be more favorable to the aging participant
  12. interesting....kind of scared to put my hand that close to the muzzle so far i've been moving my hand horizontally and running it back over the top of the slide and back into the optic to rack the slide. glad to hear dapribek hasn't had any problems with this technique. sure appreciate everyone's help.
  13. thank you.....appreciate the comprehensive and thoughtful response...i'll forward it on to him. He's a great guy and works hard at improving. happy 4th
  14. I just had a 1911 slide professionally milled for a Bushnell RXS250 red dot sight (nice sight by the way, Grayguns did an awesome job)....no other sights on the slide, just rear slide serrations right below the optic. I'm not sure how best to rack the slide...is it ok to push back on the red dot sight itself? It's somewhat awkward to grab the whole red dot and the slide. Thanks and Happy 4th
  15. Very cool, I would love to try the Laugo. Doubt i'll ever see one in our state however. I do recall reading about electronic triggers quite a few years back....i wonder why they didn't catch on?
  16. just read about the Laugo pistol....wonder if that will become popular, it seems like it offers some innovative features.
  17. I had the slide milled for the optic by Jordan at Bruce Gray's Grayguns.....he did a beautiful job, I'm very impressed. The unit has a very clear window and doesn't have that bluish tint that many of the other red dots have. Glad i bought it.
  18. I was thinking a lot about what makes a great competition pistol. I understand that there are a wide variety of platforms and shooting sports....that said, whichever format you prefer, are there parts or design characteristics that you particularly prefer or wish your pistol had? For myself, I tend to gravitate to a high grip secured in place by both a beavertail and a magwell...it locks my hand in place. I love compensators, maybe it's just the additional weight at the muzzle end, but it feels right to me. I strongly prefer a defined trigger release, a small amount of take-up, a very short reset and a bit of over travel. love decockers and ideally i think i would like a fixed barrel design....less moving parts and perhaps more accurate? A defined indexing point would also be great. Not crazy about rails, lots of windows and holes or sharp edges. It would be cool if it could accommodate different calibers with minor changes. what do you prefer or wish your pistol had?
  19. hi, I just ordered a Bushnell RXS250 for my 1911.... Not sure how best to proceed.....can a gunsmith mill out a space to mount it directly on the slide.....or do i have to also purchase a separate mount? i downloaded the manual and it mentions that the sight uses a Leupold Delta Point pattern. when i went to the Leupold site it looks like their mount is for a dovetail...i have a bare slide and was hoping not to have the sight mount so high up in a dovetail but would prefer it to mount lower in the slide proper. also, if adding standard sights to a red dot.....which sights would you recommend as space is at a premium. i'm not too fond of extra dots having grown up with all black target sights. appreciate any help and recommendations. thank you.
