  1. Yep. 10.5 with short stroke SCS is prob the best setup. If you don't want to deal with NFA, 14.5 w/pinned comp is the way to go. As for the vertical comp and barrel weights, I seriously don't know how recoil is an issue when you're shooting minor pf handgun ammo in a rifle.
  2. My Faxon barrel is threaded and I'm currently running an SLR linear comp. I haven't tried the one with the integral comp. The black finish on the nitrided parts is like a parkerized coating, and it does have kind of a rough texture. But the coating isn't very hard, so it shouldn't cause feeding or ejection problems. The actual metal underneath is what's hard (and durable).
  3. I've been using a nitrided Faxon barrel for a while now and no issues whatsoever. Nitriding basically hardens the surface and shouldn't have a negative effect in any way. You can polish the chamber if you want to. That will probably remove the black finish, which isn't very durable. But that's purely cosmetic.
  4. I started out with a RRA and 16 inch barrel and quickly realized I wanted something much smaller and lighter that also ran Glock mags. I looked at the stock JPs and there were just too many things I wanted to change. So I ended up building my own with JP side charge upper/lower/BCG, 10.5" Faxon barrel, SLR linear comp and AP Atlas S-One handguard. I also modified the receiver for a BAD 45 degree safety (and engraved the receiver to reflect that). It's compact, lightweight and handles great. It's also extremely accurate and reliable. Runs on any type of magazine and mag/extension combo I've tried so far and any ammo I've fed it. I really couldn't be happier with how it turned out.
  5. Measure the width of the new part. Measure the frame opening. Remove half from one side, then half from the other. Use a micrometer to measure as you go. If you plan to do it by hand with a file, it's probably going to be difficult to keep straight and even. But it's doable. It's WAY easier and faster to do in a vertical mill if you have one.
  6. Schuemann was a bright guy, but he was not always right. And his barrels were not without problems. Part of the reason he came out with the timing test kit is because there were so many failures. And not all those were due to improper fitting. On the cleaning issue, inappropriate tools and methods can easily damage a barrel, particularly the crown. But I just don't understand the argument for not cleaning at all. Having said that, I never use brushes in any of my barrels. Just patches and solvent, and maybe a bore snake. Although I certainly have OCD tendencies with a lot of things, barrel cleaning isn't one of them.
  7. Mega merged with Zev and some of the Mega CS/sales people are still around. So maybe try calling over there and see if someone knows.
  8. I use N320 for 9, 40 and 45 with all bullet weights (for uncompensated guns).
  9. Danish National Symphony Orchestra playing Ennio Morricone.
  10. You're talking big targets at less than 20 yards 99% of the time. If I can hit a bowling pin at 100+ with a 5 inch gun, I'd say that's plenty accurate for what we're doing.
  11. I use N320 in three different 1050s and all are dead on accurate once set. For my SV Limited gun, I need 5.4g to make major w/180g jacketed at 1.180".
  12. I think JP make great stuff. But that video seems to be 100% marketing hype.
  13. The SilencerCo Omega 9k works great for 300 BLK. It's probably not as quiet as bigger cans, but it's more than adequate, particularly with subsonic rounds. It's small size and light weight is also a big plus.
  14. I don't see any advantage to the 16" unless you like the extra weight and/or a very long hand guard. Also, 16" with a comp is long enough to be a hassle when you have tight positions.
