  1. They had a min lot charge of around $250.
  2. I just received the Primer Pro this week. CCI worked ok and Federal did not work at all. I tried a little dry teflon lube in the bowel and that did not help. I then tried the shims mod and that seems to do the trick. Federals will now fill up the tube in around 50sec after the mod. I will have to monitor for flipped primers to be sure.
  3. I recently had my slide coated with a composite electroless nickel coating with boron nitride particles. This coating has a very low coefficient of friction. The coating thickness is determined by bath time so you can pick desired thickness. I chose a very thin coating of 0.3 mil because the slide was fairly new and already had a tight fit. http://twincityplating.com/electroless-nickel-composite-plating-services.html
  4. Tungsten sleeve is an expensive option and increases failure rate of the barrel. Before you purchase get a quote on a replacement barrel with sleeve plus fitting. This way you will not be surprised by the cost when you need a new barrel. Hopefully the barrel will last a long time but at some point it will need replacement. They all do. In my experience the cheaper and more obvious change in recoil come from changing the slide stroke length. Playing around with the number of shock buffs really changes dot tracking and everyone has a different preference.
  5. Alpha 3 vs RTS2 I would say the Alpha 3 is an upgrade over the RTS2. It has much improved side buttons and 10 intensity levels with the top being very bright. Window size is little bigger which is also nice.
  6. Also consider the FTP Shooting Sports optic. It is basically an updated RTS2 with an bigger window, much nicer buttons and 8moa. It is also brighter and has more available brightness settings. The new Sigs are also very nice but expensive and made by the same place that make RTS2 and FTP. I have used the DPP for years but am switching away from them this offseason.
  7. I have a TIN coated barrel in my 9major open gun. No problems. I was planning to do with all future barrels.
  8. The Ping GPS seem to not be available anymore. Looks like a failed kickstarter. I just purchased the $100 Gego tracker and has a month to month billing plan of $8. $75 for the year. Works as advertised so at this point I would recommend it. If you want something cheaper I would suggest getting a $35 Tile pro bluetooth tracker. I put one in my bag going to Nationals and my phone was in range of bag as they loaded and unload bag from plane. So I knew my bag made it on the plane.
  9. Yes, they negate the stroking. But if you start with a stroked gun and clipped recoil spring you then can experiment with 0 to 5 shock buffs. The buffs will change how the recoil feels and how the dot lifts. Some like a slow rising dot that is trackable and some like rapid less trackable dot rise but also faster returning.
