  1. This, one of sti’s best creations.
  2. Get the 1050! I started shooting uspsa with a 550b and used that to load for 6 years. I have no idea how many rounds I loaded on it, easily 100k or more. After I really stepped up my shooting and got busier with life I decided to buy a 650 with a case feeder and bullet feeder and instantly regretted waiting so long, it was a huge difference. Then I took the plunge into open with 9major and decided I wanted the swagger and primer seater system to dial in my loads. I picked up a 1050 and all I can say is WOW! When I started I read all the posts about just buy the 1050 and always rationalized not spending the money but now that I took the journey through all 3, I really wish I could go back and listen in the first place.
  3. If you can find a gently used Trojan in 40, their great, I love mine, also a Dan Wesson would do great.
  4. I run all MBX mags, never had a problem.
  5. Makes sense, do you think that the blast hitting the shield gives it more flip and with a mount that doesn’t cover the holes it will be flatter?
  6. I’m currently running a shorty open gun, I love the way it feels so far and have been using a slide ride with a blast shield to protect it. Since the new romeo3max came out I’ve been thinking about switching over to try it but am concerned with changing to much. I know I’ll lose some weight from going with a smaller optic but in a tuning sessions a while back I noticed the blast from the popple holes hitting the shield a lot. If I go to a shorter optic it will most likely be pushed back and clear the holes more, how much do you think the difference will be between the two optics/mounts?
  7. Another vote for the Alpha X. Simple and works well.
  8. Or the Arredondo rest, it’s pretty close. Similar to the nitrofin I think.
  9. My ck shorty seems to do really well with my WAC load, it’s 7.2gr under a 124gr jhp. The dot tracks really well, when I have a good grip the dot doesn’t leave the glass.
  10. Blue bullets are a great company with fast shipping and they have good pricing with bulk buys.
  11. A 124gr bullet with e3 or wst is a great and accurate load that I shot for awhile.
  12. I had an RO in 9mm and after some techwell grips and mag well, a little skate tape on the front of the grip it was a fantastic gun. Never had an issue with it, it ran on Wilson mags extremely well. I dont think youll you’ll go wrong either way. 9mm in a SS is a lot of fun!
  13. If you were going to do a full custom build I would take a hard look at doing a 5.4 inch. If I was doing it over again this is the route I’d go.
  14. Wolff 8lb variable with a 17lb MS.
  15. @LuvDog @Hi-Power Jack For me it seems like the 155 has just enough to grab onto as well as enough sticking out of the bottom that it walks that balancing line of not too much and not enough really well. Now when I reload with a 140 it almost seems like my palm is flush with the bottom of the mag well. You up should give one a shot, worst case you don’t like it and sell it on here. I doubt an MBX mag will be in the classifieds for long.
  16. That looks pretty cool!
  17. @Hi-Power Jack the 155’s feel really smooth in the reload. I was worried about them feeling too long or too heavy but after a few dry fire sessions I don’t even notice it.
  18. Amazon is where I used to get mine. Home Health Liquid Lanolin https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0014AWF0S/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_KBSdDbPTKAJ53
  19. I just recently got into open and had the same discussion. STI gen 2 vs MBX, it seemed like I could save a few dollars with the gen 2’s but I’d have to tinker with them a little to make them run 100%. I knew that my gun would run MBX’s since that’s what was recommended and I borrowed for a little while. Ultimately I decided to go the MBX route because I knew they ran and I haven’t had a single issues with them in the last couple months. As far as what lengths to run, I find myself running a 155 and 170 most often. I have a 140 but after practicing with the 155 on reloads so much the 140 almost feels too short now. On stages that require a reload I think my new plan is to start with a 140 and reload to a 155.
  20. The APA breaks are great, I haven’t shot The Answer but have some time behind the little bastard and their design is very effective. Another great alternative is the SJC titan break. It’s very effective at keeping the gun flat.
  21. Another vote for the Hiperfire triggers. Their the hardest hitting light weight trigger pull.
