  1. If you 'YouTube' ball detents you'll find a bunch of ideas. I'm assuming you would want to fit one from the bottom side only. (as oppose to counter boring and adding a grub screw from the top). In this case you'd drill your hole and peen the rim once the spring and ball in it place. (pretty simple) Hope this helps

    80% frame?

    Right now the biggest battle you're going to have is the lead times. With everything that's going on nothing seems to be staying on the shelf per se'. With that said; here's my 2 cents: 100% Frames I've used the CK Arms frames for a few of my builds. I believe The 'C' is Matt Cheely if I'm not mistaken. The frames are very nice and there's a couple details that are added that you wouldn't really know about until you built the gun. I have also built using the Cheely frame and as expected the quality is top notch. Personally I would stay away from the STI frames. My
  3. I'm assuming this is a new issue after thousands of rounds through it with no issues? Generally speaking if the above statement was true, the first thing I'd look at is what has changed if anything. This can be anything; mags, mag components, new safety etc. If nothing has changed and this is out of the blue then I'd start looking at parts that can wear. Number one that I think of is possibly the barrel link pin is worn? Just my 2¢ Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  4. Put of curiosity has Infinity seen this report? I just bought 2 barrels from them (9 and 38). I'm wondering what they say?
  5. Now if only I could shoot that fast in a match!!
  6. WOW, that's a pretty catastrophic failure. Fortunately I have not had this happen, but I do use both Infinity and Schuemann barrels So many questions; 1. What caliber? 38sc? 2. What was your load? 3. How's your hand!? 4. Was this from a squib with a followup round or just a single round failure? 5. How many rounds through it? I hope you're OK!
  7. I use the Binary Engine 3 port on my open gun. It took a little work, but I have a load dialed in that works for me. I like it.
  8. This looks like it may be for a Cheely E2 grip? Going by the recess cut in the front.
  9. DAA makes an adjustable one that you can position in just about any configuration. (not 100% sure about completely flat) I assume that you can mount it over a red dot mount, but can't confirm as I am a lefty
  10. I know these are typical questions and I'm assuming that you most likely investigated them, but I'll ask anyway in case you missed one: 1. Have you mic'd the lips? From being dropped they may have closed a bit. 2. Is there any residue stuck on the inside of the mag body? possibly from case lube etc. Could be dragging the follower. 3. Have you tried someone else's mags that work for them? If possible you can do a stare and compare to a know working mag. Things don't break unless something is changed. From what you said in your post it doesn't seem you changed anythi
  11. I relentlessly tried to get STI Gen 2 (170's) mags to work in my open gun with no luck and a whole lot of aggravating matches. I finally broke down and bought a new MBX 170 and all my feeding problems went away. I have buddies that use the STI's (I think gen 2) and have no issues at all. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. dansedgli Interesting; What pads are you referring to?
  13. I'm not familiar with the Tanfo platform, but have you tried shaping the ejector with a bit of a chamfer to direct the brass out? (I know you said you have tried every angle, but was unsure if this is what you meant) Another place to look is possibly the extractor. Is it holding the brass tight and long enough? If it is worn it maybe losing it during extraction and therefore you're not getting a good ejection?
  14. I use their 124 FMJ's on top of 7.1 of n350 .. And actually just received another case. I like them. They seem to be consistent on the chrono and accurate. As far as the company goes; very easy to deal with and very responsive. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  15. Looks like I'm an oddball but I have had good success with the Brazos Pro Series. Albeit they needed some polishing up, but I'm breaking at sub-2# on the trigger. With that said I did recently did order the Infinity group to give it try.
