  1. I have 3-170s and 3-140s for matches. 2-140s I use for mandatory reload etc. And 1-170 and 2-140s for dry fire and practice.
  2. Mine is just under 2lbs, but that is how it came from the build
  3. The brass is the same just heavier, would prob be nice for a plastic grip to add weight. I have the steel one on my PT Grip now. It does work well. I have 2 practice mags that I use just for reload practice. I have been randomly checking the feed lips and no change. I am sure over time it will, but I dry fire 3-4 times a week and have not seen anything since I put the mag well on. That was about 2 months ago. It may require some minor fitting on a PT grip, but its very minor and a small file and about an hour and it will fit great. It works, but when you use metal vs metal if the mag is way crooked it can still get hung. For me not near as bad. I have done it slowly on purpose and maybe once or twice during dry fire when I really push the speed of the reload, but for matches and in general it has indeed eliminated out of line reloads for me.
  4. After adjusting the slider I loaded a couple hundred rounds and have zero issues with the primer slide bar sticking and only got one primer that was sideways. I will fine tune a bit more and see if I can eliminate that completely. Should have my parts next week to get going with the auto drive I hope.
  5. I checked the rocker it was tight but had free movement, but the little adjustment ramp that the primer bar sits on way not as tight..backed it down a hair and tighten it up and zero problem in the rounds I ran...thanks for the help!!
  6. I will check that tonight. thanks!!
  7. I did adjust the rod to get a little deaper primer seat and that worked great. Mine hangs up when the new primer has been picked up and is in the slider moving toward. It sticks before the pin can line it up I push slightly forward and it lines up and works. So I am not sure if it's the bolt spring mechanism or why it sticks prior to being close enough that the pin will line it up
  8. was the primer bar not going all the way forward to be able to seat the primer and hanging up the machine? If so what did they tell you? I have that problem ever now and then, but dont want to call as I already have a big enough headache. Mine as been not good at all as well...we will see if it improves, really like the design but at this point I am pretty discussed with the whole thing.
  9. I am not one to bash a company, so I wont go into detail. But, I have spoke to them several times and sent several emails between myself and one CS rep. until I posted in the other thread the last contact from them was 2 weeks ago tomorrow. Then it took them like 5 min to respond to the thread and send and email to me. I know with all the holidays and shot show coming up things are busy, and I have been patient, but I am now at 7+ weeks with no end in sight of when the auto drive will actually work. So I just wanted to see if anyone else has had issues with the machine itself, CS or other problems. I will say, as I have told them in emails, I really hope they get is resolved because I think the machine is indeed a superior design to the other re-loaders in that class.
  10. I asked in another thread if anyone had problems with the Evo Pro. Are they a better design in my opinion yes. However there were missing parts and parts that didn't and still do not work. Cant get CS to return emails or anything. I wont go into bashing here. But lets just say I have had my Evo Pro since Mid Nov. and the auto-drive has yet to make a round. Worth the money design wise yes, CS and warranty wise, TBD, at this point no.
  11. Has anyone had issues with CS or their Evo Pro not shipping with all the parts or not working when they received? If so how long did it take for them to get you fixed up right?
  12. Between the 2, I would def go Akai. I have shot several brands and I like Akai.

    STI mags

    If you need to tune them ATLAS has a video out on it. I run all gen2 have 3 170s and 3 140 match mags. Have some others for practice/dry fire etc. I run TTI guys and base pads and they work great. If you tune them to ATLAS specs, even the first Gen2 mags run for me anyway
  14. I am running between 9.2-9.4 grn of aa7 in gun and get about the same 1400 at 9.4 grn, could be a fast barrel or the lot of powder, who knows. But so far I like AA7 and 3n37 the best. My gun is not a Venom Custom though but the powder charge is about the same
  15. I have shot a middy and middy from other builders, but have shot the shortend middy that see have discussed. I just like a heavier gun and always had full length guns. At my skill level, not sure that would change much, lots of practice I am sure will..lol And of course being tuned right would have a big impact on feel etc and I don't know what loads were in the above guns.
