    I was very strongly considering starting over with the dovetail first.

    Schuemann Tribred vs standard Comp'd barrel

    Yes I would say he is a pro. I did not know he shot one though. I always work matches so I do not ever get the chance to really see what the pro's shoot. Or much of anyone else for that matter. Just from the ones I have been able to pay attention to I have never seen one.

    Schuemann Tribred vs standard Comp'd barrel

    Im not planning on changing anything. I love the gun and love how it feels. I've never shot a standard comp'd open gun so I don't know about live fire. But in dry fire it just seems like my gun is so much easier to stop on the transitions. My old one has a STI polymer grip and a slide mounted dot. The new one has a CK arms steel grip and an everglades way back dot mount. Although I have not shot it because I do not have my new dot in yet. I love the feel of it just drawing and swinging. To me not having that heavy comp on the end gives the gun so much better balance. I am simply wondering what others opinions are. Especially those who have shot both.

    I shoot major PF USPSA mostly.

    Best holster for Evo grip

    This is the same problem that I was having. I read through this post and was like crap I really dont want to modify my grip. Then I read your comment and check. Sure enough one of my grip screws was sticking out a tiny bit. So I removed the collar, made a few swipes with the file and put it back in. Smooth as can be now. Thanks!!
  6. For the last several years I have been shooting an open gun that had a 6" Schuemann tribred barrel on it and have loved it. So naturally when I went to build my own this is what I went with. Now that I have it pretty much done though I have a lot of people who are telling me that I should have gone with a standard barrel with a traditional comp. Stating that none of the pros use the schuemann and if it was that much better that they would. Now I agree that none of the pros use a schuemann. But why is that? I have never shot a standard comp gun so I do not know the difference in feel or anything. I do know that my schuemann has very very little muzzle flip the way it is set up. So I am interested in peoples opinion.

    As of today we did not have enough time to work on the slide racker. We got my dot mount and gas peddle mounted. That was all we had time for today. When I get back from work mid november we will try to finish the rest.

    Spacers in ST I Get 1 mags

    I have grams springs and followers with DP +1 base pads. I will see if i can get a picture tomorrow.

    Spacers in ST I Get 1 mags

    I will say that with good springs and followers I have never had any reliability issues with either one. Attached or loose.

    Spacers in ST I Get 1 mags

    I have two that are attached and two that rattle. But they all come to the very top. The two that rattle sometimes I have problems with the spacer moving and catching a round when I try to load them.

    Does anyone use variable springs?

    I will look into that. I am about the slowest shooter you will ever meet. Even on close open targets my time is terrible. I just cannot see the dot there for my second shot very fast. Which is a big reason why I am building my own open gun. I have been shooting for your years that my dad built for my brother. It has a slide mounted sight and some other stuff I do not care for. I am finally building one my way and cannot wait to get to shoot it. Unfortunately I do not know when that will be. Just had to send my dot off to leupold. Shooting an old Delta Point and it started going through batteries like crazy.

    Does anyone use variable springs?

    When we ordered the springco kit it came with a green painted spring that is 8lbs for minor and a red painted spring that is 11lbs for major. So that is what I have run in it. I had gone down for a little while but it just did not seem to be as reliable when shooting major as it was with the 11lbs spring.

    My dad and I have a mini mill/lathe combo that we have been wanting to get for years and just never have. We really need to. I greatly enjoy doing this stuff and there is only so much that I can do without one.

    He has a dovetail cutter. Him and one of our other local guys have made two slide rackers from bar stock. But they cut the dovetail first then made the slide racker after. So everything was straight and nice and neat when they cut the dovetail.

    Ok. He didn't say he could not do it. He said it would be very hard to do on the bolt. And I am not sure why that is. I am hoping we can simply mill it. He just seems hesitant. Thank you for your advice. If I do end up doing it by hand I might just go spend another $3 on another bolt and use that so I am working with the same material.
