  1. I've been using a dsg belt for 3gn and uspsa for 3 years now. it's not as stiff as as credit speed but I like the fact that there is a buckle so there's no way it's coming off.
  2. A lot of people mount els clips on a daa style belt. Just use a soldering iron to melt holes in the belt and screw the els clips straight to it.
  3. Oh and I'm running Winchester primers. So I don't think that's the problem.
  4. Thanks for the info, I was assuming they were the same internally and therefore the stick would have been more reliable. I will definitely get that changed out asap and get a new striker assembly.
  5. Yeah, I know the fss kit has its own striker block that different from the USB. AMD they mention that's so it deactivated earlier in the trigger travel than the USB. I just wonder if it deactivates earlier than the factory block.
  6. Yeah, honestly I've been so busy this week I haven't had a chance to mess with it at all. I'm probably going to order some new springs and give apex a call next week.
  7. looks interesting, he mentioned quad load caddies. has anyone seen them?
  8. yeah ive played with it a little and the block is partially up when the sear would drop the firing pin, im just not sure if its enough to clear or not. from looking at the striker i can definitely tell the two have been making contact, but i dont know how long its been happening or if its the cause of the problem.
  9. so I haven't changed anything on the gun recently its a 9mm pro that has... an apex FSS trigger in it the striker and striker spring are factory (i didnt want to run a lightened striker spring) the striker block and its spring are factory (i didnt have the tools on hand to drift the rear sight out and i was happy with the resulting trigger so it never got changed out) it has a custom over travel stop that limits the trigger travel when it was all installed over a year ago the hoop on the trigger bar and the over travel stop were tuned so it would all work since then it has had around 5000+ rounds through it I had a couple light strike in practice a week ago, so I assumed the striker channel was dirty. I cleaned it and the problem only got worse. I changed the striker assembly and the recoil spring to the ones out of my carry gun (full size m&p 9, which has 2500ish rounds through it.) and the problem got better but is still happening my thought is that the part of the trigger bar that deactivates the striker block has worn down a little and not fully deactivating the block so the striker is glancing off the block and losing enough energy that its causing a light strike any thoughts?
  10. yeah ive been running this load for about 6 months and only had problems with 2 poppers that were 25+ yards away and at a bad angle, just made me curious about what others are running. im considering just loading some rounds with a 130+ PF only for use if i come across some more hard targets.
  11. So at the last major 3 gun match I had some trouble knocking down poppers at 25 yds with my pistol, this have caused me to reconsider the load im shooting. So i ran my current loads over the chrono and they are quit a bit slower than expected, currently im shooting X-treme 147s at about 800 fps, which puts me at a power factor just above 115 anyone here loading for 3 gun? if so what are you shooting? since I dont have to meet an actual PF any recommendations for what I should run to knock everything down? Edit to add: im running a M&P pro with the 5" factory barrel
  12. Has anyone tried these in 3gun? Compared to dueck defense or the Magpul offsets?
  13. I'm considering getting a USO SR-8 to give a little more range and precision for non 3 gun shooting, I would like to use the same optic for 3 gun. The concerns I have heard about it are limited field of view and it being slow at close shooting at 1x as I'm considering getting the shop without the red dot. Does anyone have experience with these scope?
  14. I'm excited to start seeing reviews of the sub$1000 Burris 1-8x, could a good entry into high end scopes
  15. Huh, I'll be interested to see how popular they are, being kinda late to the game.
