Burned Out

Burned Out (10/11)

  1. It is all IFG instead of EAA now I think.
  2. If I could make myself pass along a problem to another enthusiast I would have done that - seems to be what happens based on me buying two (did I mention I'm an idiot?) turds that way.
  3. Somewhere around $375 if they do the work I think. Note, the ammo that is accurate and feeds reliably with your old barrel may not be best for the PD barrel. My nickel. I would never buy another new Tanfo sight unseen, unless I had someone I trusted examine it before committing to the deal. This gun and a stock 2 40 caliber of mine were both apparently Monday morning manufactured, should have learned the lesson the first time.
  4. https://bayoubullets.net/38-357-124-gr-rn/ With 160's , win brass, U-die and just crimping enough to bring the brass back to the bullet I almost do not have any issues with bullets walking - never had a known issue while shooting but have seen them get longer if say I shot 6 or 7 and left 1 in the clip. . Am switching to the 125's - thought being that the critical contact area between brass and bullet will not change (tapered brass) and the inertia of the bullet in the brass under recoil (m*v) will be reduced by about 22%. Time will tell. Could be that the change to the recoil impulse using lighter bullets at the same power factor will work against me.
  5. Seems like this one is going to end up ok. With a PD barrel fit by their gunsmiths the slide feels tighter fit to the frame than the slides on my other Tanfo's. It is not, putting the oem barrel back in or just playing with the barrel out allows you to feel the slide to frame slop. If you very gently ease the slide closed it will stop as shown. On the first range trip I ran the first 10 rounds through it ok and after that I had two or three FTF's on every loaded to 10 round magazine. I also was disappointed with accuracy. Not fun. Replaced the recoil spring I had been using (9lb I think) with the oem recoil spring. Tried it again today, shot only about 50 rounds, no ftf, accuracy seemed like it will be fine for USPSA/IDPA with a little sorting out of what it wants to shoot and a bit more break in. I use 20 yard head shots as my accuracy gauge, if I can get 10 for 10 freehand (when I don't screw up) I call that good.
  6. Consistent and fair by definition means everybody gets whacked or nobody gets whacked, when to be inconsistent and unfair is where things get dicey. I try tp protect new shooters before they screw up but don't treat rule infractions differently with different shooters, not saying that is a better philosophy than anyone else's.
  7. I agree that you need guidance to learn the little tricks (use a closely sized slave pin when replacing the sear - a tiny Philips works great for positioning the sear spring - etc) , but to me it seems like after you have read the guidance and done it a few times you have sort of paid the price of admission and after that working on the safety style CZ's is no big deal and I think it is fun (sick mind?) . Have never touched a decocker style gun.
  8. Demand would need to justify the cost of cataloging and inventory, which might be pretty hard on a designed for competition right out of the box production gun. I think the subset of competition shooters serious enough to pay above $1000 for a competition gun but uncomfortable with lowering the hammer on a typical CZ or revolver might be very small.
  9. For me (6'1", probably average size hands for height) the ergo's are very different, no brand similarity at all. I sold a fully tuned SP01 and got the shadow 2, found that the 2 pointed high for me, felt nose heavy to me, and although the trigger was much better than the SP01 out of the box I ended up doing all the same things (sear, springs, disco, hammer, polish-polish-polish) to get it as good as my SP01 was. Sold the S2 and got an SP01 Shadow and I'm happy again. It all gets down to personal preferences or hand size, they are both good. If I was you I would do what it takes to allow me to lay hands on an SP01 and then decide. Oh, SP01 vs SP01 Shadow, I would not sweat the difference. You can get a great trigger on either.
  10. I can click on 2 empty chambers faster than I can insure the empty spots are correctly oriented during a reload, but either would be slow.
  11. Ended up sending the gun to PD to see if they thought it was worth a new PD barrel, they did, should have some rounds through it next week.
  12. You are saying that high round count makes lo-cap guns less fun for you?
  13. Agreed. Gun to gun consistency is often assumed, no experience with DW here, my experience with Ruger is that they will no hassle warranty it if it is not within their specs but quality control is more similar to mass production than to custom.
