  1. Batteries are really important! Only use Duracell. Check the voltage with a multimeter. The other batteries are thinner and don’t make a good Contact and you will loose your dot! Say no to Energizer etc. Also I remove my battery every so often and clean the contacts with an alcohol lens wipe to remove oil and corrosion. This is very important. Gotta have the correct thickness from the battery “Duracell”, gotta be clean to allow correct voltage to illuminate the dot, got to have correct voltage to begin with.
  2. Yeah PCC no way. [emoji23][emoji379] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Ok so where are we at? How old is the oldest a person has been when they’ve made GM? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Agreed. If anyone 60+ has made GM please post. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. A friend and I are trying to figure out, how old is old when it comes to making GM? Any idea how old someone has been? 55?, 60?, 65?, 70?, 75? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I have shot the same gun with the new comp. It’s very close. I think the dot may track better with the new comp (straight up and down) the old school comp may be a bit flatter (however the dot wiggles a bit). So ... it’s a trade off. I wanted the flattest possible so Shay fixed me up with the old school. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Not sure about that. I haven’t personally experienced the more gas the better the dot movement. I prefer a lighter softer load. In my testing the lighter the recoil the better I can muscle the gun. Example: I love running Winchester white box through the gun. Soo soft. If I were going out of town to shoot an area match I would be sure I’m chronoing at 170 PF just for insurance but I’d rather be shooting 165.5 for feel. Im sure some guns are different.

  8. I’m getting 169 PF ish Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  10. I learned that the team guys are pushing the limits of everything. They test the guns looking for any mechanical advantage. They cut recoil and main springs until the point of failure then try again. I learned that it feels softer the lighter the recoil spring and the less coils it has, until it no longer functions. I’m using a 7 lbs variable with 3 coils cut and 3 aluminum shock buffs (since I have a stroked gun) thanks to their testing. It shoots great. Also switched from WAC to AA7 per their input.

  11. It was a good year! Current 9mm load is this: 124 JHP 9.7 AA7 1.165 CCI SPP Akai wait time depends on what they’ve got in the oven so to speak. I think normal build time is 8 months, if they’ve got something in the hopper maybe 4-6 months. I think it took 8 months for my twins order but they were 100% custom. I’m not sure what kind of back log they have. They have some sweet enhancements that make their guns return fast and shoot flat. I whole heartedly recommend them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. .40 no it’s 9mm major. 124 AA7 PF 168.5 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I think the ultimate build is: 4.5” slide, 5” barrel, stroked, long heavy dust cover, tungsten sleeved barrel (currently have regular bull barrel but next Gun will be tungsten sleeved), Steel old school comp (next one will be titanium old school comp), thumb rest (type personal pref, I like Nitro fin), safeties (personal pref, I like double taps). Dot: Leupold DPP Grip: PT Evo Magwell: Dawson Ice Aluminum Trigger: (Personal pref) Infinity Flat short for me. Recoil spring: 7lbs Wolff variable cut 3 coils. Shock buff: (3) Aluminum for stroked gun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Got the twins in March. I’ve had a great year shooting these blasters. I want everyone to know about these guns. They rock! I wish the folks at Akai the best and hope to promote a great product supported by good people. I finished 16th in Open at Optics Nationals this year. Been shooting open for 2 years. I shot in their contingency program and won a bunch of stuff and was united with other shooters across the country. It was fun being part of something. Also met all of their team shooters and learned a lot about tuning the guns, powder selection, bullet choices, springs etc. Thanks guys! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
