    Czechmate Thumb Rest

    Looks good, I’ll try that as well. Thanks Leadpilot.

    Czechmate Thumb Rest

    No, but one that is similar, made by a guy in Malaysia (Advance Ratio?). Problem is not in the rest, but in the mount. It needs a minimum of two heads in the countersink holes to stay in place. Only one and it will rotate around it. edit: abb1, was there a solution in the post you mentioned?

    Czechmate Thumb Rest

    Yes, I did. Had this with several thumbrests. I now have a TSO rest, the 90degree mount is fitted with two screws. The thumbrest with one, locktite and anti skid tape. Now only the thumbrest moves now and then. Two screws in the thumbrest and one directly in the mount and it will lose zero in less than 200 shots.

    Is VV 3N38 worth the price for 9mm major

    Chrono’d at a match, 2 degrees C (36F), still made 168.5. At 71F about 171 with F200 primer. Temperature sensitivity less than I expected.

    CZ 75 SP-01 Carry Optics Build

    Slide of my Shadow is now with the gunsmith, fitting a Shield RMS. Very low, and iron backup built in. Will be for IPSC Production Optics.

    Are his data on the forum?

    Is VV 3N38 worth the price for 9mm major

    No exact chrono data, but I take 5 PF points per 20 degrees celsius loss. Twice that of VV. Based on reports from comparison of others, PF at home vs PF at match.

    Is VV 3N38 worth the price for 9mm major

    Great powder, leaves a little residue. N350 is cleaner, but D37.1 works the comp better. Above is with Federal 100 primer, I now use F200 and 9.5gr. Lovex is quite temperature sensitive.

  10. OK Thanks! And of course interested in your new setup.
  11. How long is the VLTOR A5 tube? Longer than a carbine isn’t it?
  12. I installed this setup in a rifle length tube with the delrin spacer that comes with the JP SCS. This makes it a carbine length tube. The bolt travel is not enough to load a round, it seems to bottom out before that. I checked: Delrin spacer, M10 wave spring, cut buffer, carbine spring, Blitzkrieg buffer. Without the Delrin spacer all feels very soft. What am I missing?

    Czechmate stroking

    Too much for me, I’ll pass on this one for the CM. Is it worth the effort on a SP-01, minor? (Will have the slide milled for a dot. )

    Czechmate stroking

    Want to do this as well. Here: “ “ KneelingAtlas briefly mentiones it. -Do you need to mill the slide? -Does it work on the Czechmate with the recoil spring housing? edit: And will a SP-01 benefit from it?

    IF, I were to buy a Czechmate....

    The Parrot used to have a concealed hammer iso the regular one. I would do at least the Grams tuning and the extended CZC mag bottoms.
