    Shield upgrades

    I have a dead stock original version in 9mm. Although the trigger could be improved, most of the time I can clean a plate rack at 25 yards just like it came in the box. Its a great shooting small carry pistol. Used for its intended purpose I would not modify it in any way and I can't imagine using it for anything other than a small carry pistol. The trigger is hard enough that its not going to go off too easy, it points well, the sights are good enough and the size and shape is good.

    Looking for suggestions: 9mm EMP4

    Try this: 115 HAP 5.3 gr. N340 1.100 oal Its about a normal “factory load” velocity and shoots great in every gun I’ve tried it in.

    Ideal pcc

    My Nordic NCPCC15 weighs 7 lbs. 5 ozs. with red dot sight. Its been 100% reliable for a couple thousand rounds. No mods needed. I would definitely buy it again.
  4. A .45 bristle brush (or a 9mm/38 if that's all you have with you) on a cleaning rod inserted from the breech end. Push the brush in just far enough that the mouth of the case is about midway up the brush. You might want to hold the barrel in a vise when you try this (or find a helper).

    Powder question

    I find N340 to be excellent in 9mm.

    Nordic NCPCC Lower, M&P or Glock ?

    I'm using Taran Tactical extensions which boost capacity to 23 rounds. There are advantages to shorter magazines - lots better handling at reload, easier to carry and maneuver with. Good news on the Nordic receivers is that you can change which magazines you use after purchase if what you try first is not satisfactory.

    Nordic NCPCC Lower, M&P or Glock ?

    M&P. No big sticks, but faster loading, and the mags are very high quality.

    PCC decisions

    Love my Nordic. And I highly recommend the M&P mags with Taran extenders.

    I'm down with PCC...Nordic Review.

    7 pounds, 5 ounces with sight - not too heavy at all.

    I'm down with PCC...Nordic Review.

    Kinda surprised this gun is not getting more traction. Mine runs >> flawlessly << and is very accurate. As far as I'm concerned, this is the nicest out of the box PCC available and at a good price for the high quality. You really don't need to do anything but put a sight on it and go shoot.

    Nordic Components has a game changer.

    I watched and waited a long while before buying into PCC and I'm glad I did. The Nordic Components is a great rifle.

    My Nordic Components NCPCC works every time so far -- @1000 rounds. https://nordiccomp.com/categories/nc-pcc/

    Nordic Components has a game changer.

    The gun ran great at the match, so up to about 400 rounds now with 100% perfect function. I did have to clear the gun into the berm because the cartridges were just a bit long. New cartridge overall length is 1.100" and is tested for extraction of loaded rounds. The heavy blowback bolt will jam just about anything into the chamber but it may not come out unless you shoot it out. But that's totally my fault for rushing to get the brand new gun ready for a match in two days. The trigger is decent after getting a little break-in and lube. I am kinda of surprised at how well it slicked up. Somehow UPS lost my Hyperfire that was supposed to be here last Friday and I do still look forward to getting it in the gun. But if I never changed the trigger I am not sure it would matter that much. This gun is plenty usable right out of the box without any refinement or modification. I recommend the Nordic Comp NC-PCC without reservation. https://nordiccomp.com/categories/nc-pcc/ As for the match results, I "zeroed" one stage out of five (I was apparently unable to count past 2, so left a shot off each target) and still finished mid pack overall. Won the classifier. I think there is a lot to be said for the interchangeable magwells and being able to use other mags of your choice. I know Glock mags are ubiquitous, but I'm not sure they're the best for a PCC AR. ROing and getting to see up close when so many PCCs puked for the past year+ convinced me to keep waiting before jumping into PCC. The S&W M&P mags work great. I am pretty sure that Beretta M92 mags will work just as well. And the STI mags should be good too. Its hard to beat a high quality metal magazine. The interchangeable magwell feature is not apparent visually or functionally. You'd never notice unless you wanted to change it out - it fits that well. And the way it fits is really well thought out and sturdy. There is no downside to it.

    Nordic Components has a game changer.

    Shot a little over 200 rounds this afternoon with perfect function. Seemingly excellent accuracy - ragged bullet hole at 20 yards from improvised rest over top of my shooting box. Shot 115 HAPs (at 1.120" o.a.l. with 5.3 grains of N340, pretty snappy) and some 129 gr lead SWCs - and it did feed everything. These are very nicely built guns with a high level of machine finish for an AR. I like the S&W mags which present the rounds straight into the chamber from a single central position. I chose Taran Tactical +6 extenders and other than hard to load the last few rounds, they worked perfectly. The metal mags slid in and out easily with no tendency to hang on release or insertion. A Burris Fastfire III was on top today. I might want larger than the 3 MOA dot or I might try a 1X scope. But for Saturday's match, its ready to go except for the trigger that's due here tomorrow.
