    TS/TSO vs. 2011

    I had a matched pair of Atlas Titans which were great pistols. I came to them after shooting Glocks for many years and just couldn’t adapt to the grip angle. Purchased a TSO and immediately was at one with it. The timer doesn’t lie and CZ dropped seconds off my Titan and a Glock times. My TSO’s stock triggers were 14 ounces and have worn in to 12 ounces which are perfectly useable for me. The Titan triggers were phenomenal but I don’t feel that I am giving up anything with m6 CZ triggers. I also have a newish CM and it’s trigger is 15 ounces and I am just breaking it in this year.
  2. A little OT but I recently purchased 3 Grauffel recoil springs for my CM and I am VERY disappointed in their quality control. I purchased an 8# and it measured almost 10#. The 9 measured 12# and the 10# measured 12#. I verified my scales by measuring several Wolfe and IMSI springs which were both spot on. I reached out to Shooters Connection, where I purchased the springs and they have yet to return my email.
  3. My competition pistols are: Shadow 2, IDPA CO TSO, Limited Czeckmate, open P-01 Omega, carry, Dawson sights, thorough polish.
  4. I got 7 years out of my first FFIII, using it an average of 6 hours per week.
  5. I have pushed 95 grain coated cast to a little over 1600 FPS with no issues. Of course YMMV.
  6. Are you sure? I thought they were stainless steel cases?
  7. Nickel plated brass cases are harder and the process makes the cases brittle. I get more case cracking on nickel than I do on brass. I used nickel exclusively one winter and I got an average of 6 reloads out of a case before it split and that was with minor loads. All my nickel cases are now reserved for matches where I have to leave my brass at other clubs.
  8. Primary did mine and I am thrilled with the quality of service, machine work, cerakoting and turnaround time.
  9. I got the SC slide racker and ran 150 rounds through my CM and it never loosened up. Thanks again for the tip.
  10. My 8# jug of MP has a lot code of 043019 514. The inside of the cases are so clean, it’s pretty amazing. It looks as though the brass has never been fired since it was cleaned. Are you seeing the same thing with your cases? If so, is it the same with the slower batches too?
  11. How does it compare to Titegroup in terms of cleanliness? Does it share similar load data?
  12. No to side track your question but what are those two Allen screws and bracket below the red dot? My P01 doesn’t have those?
  13. I am a right handed shooter and my slide racker handle is mounted on the left side but after 50-100 rounds the set screw loosens up. I drilled a small dimple on the top of the slide to allow the set screw more surface area to bite into but it still loosens. I don’t want to lock tite it because I remove the handle often when cleaning the slide. Would mounting the handle on the right side make any difference or any other suggestions, short of removing it entirely?
  14. I just removed the Dillon feed tube and connected a flexible tube to the Lee APP. I also made a wood support to hold the tube into the APP. Hope that is explanatory?
  15. Thanks for the link. That thread answers my question. Mods, feel free to close this thread.
  16. Anywhere there is a square cornered shoulder (or step in the case) its a stress riser and if a failure is eminent it’s likely to start at a stress riser. If they would have put a small rounded fillet in the step that would have eliminated the stress riser. It’s obvious to me that whoever designed the stepped case wasn’t an engineer with proper education.
  17. Just curious how many times you are able to reuse your 9mm open brass before it splits? I’ve never tracked mine because it gets mixed in with my minor brass but I probably should start separating and tracking it.

    CZC Flat Trigger

    Have one in my S2 and really like the extended reach and break point. I felt cramped with the stock trigger and the flat trigger is vastly improved in that respect. It doesn’t change the trigger pull weight.
  19. I wouldn’t touch the holes in the frame but rather polish the safety shaft that goes through the holes. If you go too far it’s much cheaper replacing a safety than it is a frame.
  20. The same load crono’d through a 5” pistol and a 16” rifle will NOT be the same velocity. A longer barrel will yield a higher velocity, period.
  21. PocketPistol, Thanks for posting your data and targets. Why didn’t you post SD numbers for MP? You said you preferred AA7 to MP, but you are not comparing the same weight bullets and loads, at least in your posted data. Your MP target shows a load of 9.6 but no data was posted. It just doesn’t seem like an apples to apples comparison, when comparing two different bullet weights, even though the PF may have been the same. Lighter bullets and heavier bullets both feel differently to me in my guns, even at the same PF. Please explain in further detail when you have time. Thx...l
  22. Yes, I have one and it works great AFTER you tweak it which is no small feat. It took me hours to get it adjusted. I hooked it up to my Dillon case feeder and it works like a champ.
  23. 5.2 N320 @1.030”=130 PF If you want a super soft load, 3.8 grains SP or N320 = 97 PF
