  1. I've shot both and for competition I prefer the 4 weight SCS. The 5 weight actually has more buffering potential beyond just the weights as the slide is made out of steel vs the aluminum of the 4 weight slide. The 5 weight actually felt softer to me but the dot moved way more and my double taps were usually alpha charlie instead of two alpha with the 4 weight at the same distance. If I was shooting recreationally, had a higher caliber gun like 40 or 45, or had a bolt that needed the weight removed to be compatible with a SCS I would run the 5 weight.
  2. My GMR-15. CTR upper, 16" barrel cut to 13.75", crowned, and rethreaded to 5/8-24 for the titanium 3 port comp. Weighed in at 6.2 pounds as you see it.
  3. I just saw the news that the Tactical Shotgun Championship is back this year. Can't say how excited I am about shooting that match again. MN 3gun Group FB page
  4. I did the Sterling thing once before (and missing all the targets) so wanted to do something different
  5. So you can do cool stuff like tagging steel from the hip in a Stormtrooper costume!
  6. Am I reading the stage descriptions correctly and seeing that shotgun slings aren't mentioned? Another first timer question, is it prudent to bring some heavy hitting hunting loads or is that an edge case gamer thing? Our local matches restrict shotgun to low brass shells so I don't know anything about that aspect of shotgun.
  7. There's a stubby lever for that safety, it's part number SL-3 I think. Maybe try that and see if it helps. They're cool rifles though, I made the mistake of shooting one and now I want one bad
  8. I mostly do dumb stuff that entertains me, sometimes I get lucky and it entertains others. This has also led to me having a picture with Jerry while wearing a Three Keyboard Cat Moon shirt.
  9. It was the last match for the indoor league, they hand out trophys for everyone then hold two small stages. It's usually BUG orientated, so I figured it was a good venue for the suit with limited round count and minimal movement. The one stage being 24 rounds threw me off but ended up working out ok.
  10. I saw this video when I came up with this idea to see if it had been done before, you kicked ass at the match while I planned to zero everything.
  11. Our indoor winter league had its trophy night match where they distribute plaques and have two small stages, so I figured that was the perfect venue to try out my newly completed Stormtrooper armor. A coworker borrowed me his Sterling 9mm pistol and I did my best to miss every target like a good stormtrooper. This table start blew as I can't see anything below my nose level with the helmet on and bending over isn't the easiest.
  12. Getting a handguard in a shorter length would cut weight for you, but I don't think ditching the TD is worth it. It's aluminum and not out at the front of the gun like the handguard, so I don't think you'll notice the difference as much. Plus it looks awesome and sometimes you have to make sacrifices to be cool.
  13. Automotive paint with a couple coats of clear
  14. SCR11 18" 223 with the BC1 aluminum carrier
  15. A guy with a steady cam rig got some really cool footage of the match. The jungle runs really show off the camera just gliding behind the shooter. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=/Z7kDzQpZ-Qo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=/Qv1Hxrh4cf4 I didn't want to clutter up this thread too badly, there's more videos on his channel so go check them out if you're interested.
  16. Our squad convinced Dan that burning a slug into the dash is a good idea. He's awesome and the idea was funny but the result was anticlimactic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QTweRkGgPb8 After the match, the ROs found out it still ran and had some fun.
  17. Mine took 2 or 3 weeks to show up. It's a really good cost per round carried setup and I used it for a season on high round count stages. My only complaint is that the retention is a bit too much and can be a very slight detriment to speed, it's also limited to dual loading. it's a good buy if you're okay with those small issues.
  18. I wanted to use the RNT release as well, but the design of the Stoeger forearm doesn't work with it. I tried sanding things to get it to work but it was never really as solid as I wanted. It's a slick design too, I was looking forward to using it.
  19. The comment about keeping your elbow in really stuck with me and helped in my transition from dual loading to quads. I'm still practicing with them but I changed my port work to facilitate my thumb position near the shell catch and I've picked up speed. Thanks for sharing the info, we all push each other to get better.
  20. Sent my trigger to MOA to fix my doubling issue, here's what they said after receiving it. "There is measureable wear on the trigger hook, and a little too much nose clearance on the disconnector. Combine the two, and doubling is a distinct possibility." Disappointing to see in a gun with only ~1,000 shots fired but the fix was cheap from MOA and I'm still happy with the purchase. I could have sent it to the factory but wanted a US disconnector and the lighter trigger is an added bonus. If this is the biggest problem I have with the gun, I'll be happy.
  21. Yeah, it's a factory trigger. I wanted to do the 922r compliance anyway and the factory can't do that for me, so MOA is my best option. Otherwise I would do exactly what you're suggesting.
  22. Started having issues with my Stoeger at a match this weekend. The gun doubled multiple times for both myself and my dad. I've run the gun multiple times and it was his first time shooting a match, so that should rule out any technique problems. Luckily, we were able to borrow a gun and finish the match but it was disheartening seeing the factory trigger have issues with only about 1,000-1,500 rounds through it. Here's pictures of my trigger, I don't see anything glaringly wrong but I'll be sending it off to MOA to be gone through and have them work it over.
