  1. 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
  2. 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 anything. The above is the only thing I can thing of that would change involuntarily and without your knowledge. Oh, another thing you may want to try is to bend the front of the very first coil just below the follower up a bit. This theoretically would put more pressure on the leading edge of it bringing the nose up.
  3. 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
  4. dansedgli Interesting; What pads are you referring to?
  5. 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?
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. @bigboy69There's actually one up for sale in the classifieds right now. (PT)
  9. Limited10 Infinity Phoenix Trinity (PT) Cheely And I think LimCat does as well
  10. I believe that hey are 6-48 with a fillister head.. They are tough to find too. Brownells has them, but with shipping it's a bit pricey. You can also try McMaster-Carr. Edit: That's for mounting a Slide Ride. (good call 36873687)
  11. I went through this not too long ago, however my situation was just the opposite; I have pretty big hands. I was fortunate enough to have been able to handle the three grips I was looking at: PT EVO, Cheely E2 and the LimCat. I found out of all of them the LimCat felt the smallest in my hand. I eventually wen the way of the E2 as it felt the best in my hand. Currently I have Limited-10 steel grip on order for my backup Open build. I'll be posting a review once I get it. Here is a link to the discussion on the grip comparison:
  12. I started using Hoppes in the 80's and still use it today. if it ain't broke don't fix it.
  13. I'm a fan of them. I went with DAA large adjustable one (I have pretty big hands and my thumb is the size of a sausage link. Plus the ability to tune the angle to my comfort is a big plus) It helps me index the gun with a constant grip as well keep from riding the slide with my thumb. When shooting a major PF (I'm shooting 9 major) with all elements taken into consideration; load, comp, spring etc. my gun returns to zero all the time. Before the thumb rest it would vary because I could never get a constant placement with my thumb.
  14. You would use a standard 5" threaded bull barrel. I believe overall length would be 5.4"including the threads. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  15. On the trigger bow you should see a couple of small tabs that you can bend forward... With the top-end off you'll be able to get in there too small screwdriver and push them forward. This will shorten your trigger pull and shorten your reset. I can give you a better explanation when I get home and can provide you a picture of what I am talking about.
