  1. I also would recommend the Taccom barrel Tim is very creative and makes good products. Go with the Taccom for sure!
  2. Have three 3-gun matches fired thru the VR82 and cannot complain except the Fiochi 20 ga shot shells that would not extract....everything else has been 100 per cent with the four ten round mags and the 20 round one. Even the wally world 20 ga ran great with one failure to eject but I hand cycled that out and no further problem. At 6 pounds 12 ounces the gun is easy to handle and drives on the targets and recoil is ok. Long range targets at 30 and 35 yards are no problem and I took the swinger in four shots at one match....running a mod choke in it....would like to find a muzzle brake just for the cool llok for it....so fa so good.
  3. Call Tim at Taccom and ask if his glock mag extension can be retro fitted for the para mags
  4. Over the years R&R Targets has done customization on saiga type shotgun...shot with them at Minn. Shotgun classic and Pro-Am in Kentucky....they have or had a lot of extras that you can get or have them install but I have not heard from them lately.
  5. At a 3-gun match several years ago stage 1 started with 5 ten inch plates, swingers at 110 to 120 yards. Shooter had to engage each plate once and go back and re-engage each plate again....the AR platform had no problem with the plates. Competitors could also use a rest. We had two ak's and one mini-14 ....all three went thru 2 or 3 magazines and all three did not engage all the plates with the required round before going to the next set of targets. Fun gun to shoot but....
  6. I started out with a C-more railway on my MKA 1919 when they first came into the USA about 8 years ago and still have it on top of my 10.6 inch Genesis Arms 12 ga......still going strong and no riser was needed to raise the optic.
  7. Does anyone have any information on Coonan Arms whether or not they might get back into producing their 357 mag 1911 clone?
  8. Check with Tim at Taccom....I got one of his barrels and bolt groups from him and am very happy with the results...have have a few falures to feed but worked that out by retarding the bcg travel with a blocker in the buffer tube....Tim offers 5.5 10.5 and 16 inch barrels....the shorter barrels have aluminum shrouds and feed ramps with a hood....think 1911 barrels and the bolt is cut for the top of the barrel extention, Total weight is 5.4 pounds and the ETX mags feed and are drop free.
  9. Back from the range and after a good cleaning ran a box of shells thru the new gun. I started with the five round mag and ran Win. universal white box...the only thing I could find these days of shortages....20 ga 2 3/4 1200 fps, 7/8 oz number 8's. First mag had three failures to ejext....not looking good here!! Next five round mag only one failure to eject but two failures to chamber fully. Ten round down the bore....next tried the ten round mags and had better results but only loaded five round each time to break in the mags....the ten rounders are a bit hard to load. You have to push down hard and insert the 20 ga. round and tip up the front end of the round to get the metal rim over the front of the metal end were the plastic meat the metal. No failure to feed but one or two to eject but by the last five round in the ten round mag I got all five to go off as fast as my little fingers could pull the trigger. So far pretty much of what I expected so back out to the range in a couple of days after the impending snow storm.
  10. Picked up the VR82 from the dealer. I took it home and remover the pistol grip stock and pot on a regular grip and magpul stock. Just that change dropped the weight from 7.6 poumds to 6 pounds 7.2 oz. Going to be 60's tomorrow and will let you know how it runs.
  11. I can't complain about the Genesis 12, but I am pushing 73 and I figure the 20 ga. won't handicap me too much going from 1 1/8 ounce to 1 ounce pay load. Looking to put the VR82 on a diet and take it down to 6.5 pounds.
  12. I heard about RIA having a 20 gauge version of the VR80. So while looking thru the internet trying to order one I happened upon to ealers with the ten round magazine so I ordered thre. After browsing a little more I happend on the 19 rounders so ordered one of those. That was back in early Jan. After church this Sunday, God willing I was looking at the Gra-a-Gun website and just had to order one of the VR82 's they had in stock and low and behold the shipped it out Mon. morning so now I wait. This seems like the ticket for smaller framed elderly like me and most kids and women. Should be here by Fri. will let you know my initial impressions when I get this.

  14. The Ripon Gun Club, Ripon,WI. will host the Wisconsin Optics Championship July 30, 31 and August 1. My concern after talking to several FFL retailers is that with the current political climate and the censorship by the inter net that using Practiscore for sign up and receiving money thru them might be sabotaged by the same people doing the same to Trump and the gun community. Some retail gun dealers have heard that funds were confiscated by internet entities. Has any member here have info about the situation?
  15. I am looking to buy a 20 gauge RIA VR82 and I am having trouble finding one so if in your wanderings you happen to run across one email me at: dwzuspsa@aol.com Please let me know! Thanks.
  16. CDNN has an MKA type shotgun for $499....I have used them before when they first came in the country and the newer ones are better than the older....so take a look at them at CDNN.
  17. Just got notice yesterday that RIA has new addition to the V80 line called the VR82....a new scaled down shotgun in 20 ga...new for this year. Looking at the 20 ga means just going from the 1 1/8 oz to 1 oz. for youth and those of slight build and us older gentlemen....the weight empty is at 7.5 lbs. They are advertising 5, 10 and 19 round magazines. Right now there is no stock in at any of the dealers listed.
  18. My Brother just bought a LaRue for 80 bucks and put it on hos match , 3-gun, rifle. It is a 2-stage coming in at just over 3,7 lbs,,,,have one coming for a Christmas present and hope the covid is gone for next year....have a Merry Christmas for everybody on Enos.
  19. I had polio on my left side so I got the 10.5 inch and use it for 3-gun. I have notice that I need to choke up for longer steel or clays...not quite full choke but more thatn mod.
  20. Check out Tennessee Arms for their polymer lowers. They have a video with a lower on a full auto and fire like 12000 round thru it...and they have a fully assembled kit...I have two PCC built on their lower and both work reliably but took some tuning to get there. They are probably one of the least expensive lowers around. The only real problem I have had is fitting the lower and upper-they tend to go together very tightly so need to fit them.
  21. Home Depot has a Ryobi blue line fan with a mister....it does fit on a 3.5 gallon bucket but the filter line does fit in a water bottle you can carry on your gun cart.
  22. tAcTiCaL-D....all I can say is keep asking them for info....seems the old addage...the greasy wheel works....I think they are good people to deal with but are a little over promised sometimes. I am very happy with mine and have not had any problem with this one.
  23. per Troy: It's ok to leave your gun in the holster, even with magazines on the belt, in the safe area while you attend to other business. As long as the magazines themselves are not handled, there are no safety violations. An unattended firearm is just that, unattended. It is not dangerous, nor can it do anything on its own. The biggest threat to an unattended gun on a safe area table is the chance it gets stolen. The rules say you can't handle ammunition, snap caps, dummy rounds, or empty cases in a safe area. Having them in magazine carriers, or in your bag in a safety area is not a rules violation.
  24. I also submitted the question to USPSA NROI...waitng for an answer and will post what they have to say here.
  25. At yesterdays match a new shooter left his holstered gun and belt on the safe table to use the porta poddy....he also left a loaded mag on the table and two more loaded mag in the carriers on the belt. I referred to Section 2.4.1.1 - 2.4.1,4. Nowhere in that area do the rules say leaving a firearms un-attended is OK. I explained the idea behind the Safe Area and being his first match I issued a firm warning and advised him to bag the gun in the safe area and put it in his cart then do what ever his bladder needs to do.. read 3.3 and find it to be used for state and local ordinance. Just a CRO's oppinion.
