  1. Yea, try 60 yd slugs on an 8 inch plate ... or 160+ yard slugs on a BC steel ... Now line up 8 clays for fast hosing ... do the work to get the gun shooting softer/flatter and being able to pull the trigger faster while not pulling off target becomes even more apparent .. and to counter the "well just use a wider choke" ... follow those clays by far slugs or heavy steel If stuff like that doesnt happen at your local matches, great .. but start traveling and you need to be prepared for it all
  2. I'm pretty new to this site and still figuring out how to navigate around here, but I've seen quite  few posts of yours concerning the VR80. I have one and it's giving me a fit.  Shells stuck in chamber, not cycling, hanging up as a round feeds and leaves a gash on the shell when it does this, etc. Do you mind letting me know what you've done to get yours running smoothly?

    If you've gone over this, if you can point me in the direction of your comments or videos I'd really appreciate it.

      First the basics -- out of the box they need one hell of a cleaning and lube (leave the gas system dry). They like to have the bolt/carrier run WET. You need to break them in with about 100 rounds of 1300 fps ammo. You will probably have issues during this, but work through it. I also took some metal polish and polished the bare metal under the gas piston -- not to a mirror, just slicked it up a bit. The Taccom buffer helps to run a wider variety of loads too -- and you can also try backing out the buffer tube a turn (maybe 2) as the factory buffer/spring setup kinda sucks and goes to solid upon recoil.

  3. Yea it's bigger than a 507 but looking at normal frame mounted open guns ... Lots of people still use cmores and those are big too. The 510 wouldn't be any issue Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  4. Like this? Or w frame mounted 510? Buddy of mine uses a 510 on this steel gun and I don't see why it would be any different from any other frame mounted optic Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. Comp is great, the fact that it works yet doesn't affect the pattern is key Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk

  8. Because the Taccom doesn't monkey f*#k the pattern like the RIA does - probably either due to bore diameter or how the escaping gasses flow. It (RIA) works great for maximum recoil/lift control but the pattern suffers greatly. The Taccom gives SLIGHTLY more lift and felt recoil (negligible IMHO) but keeps the pattern. It's the right choice. Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. I'll help you out ... Fiocchi 3dram, 7.5s, 1-1/8oz, 1200 fps ... 35 feet ... Factory MOD choke L = RIA Long Comp B = Bare muzzle (no comp) T = Taccom Not even a fair fight Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. Now pattern test them ... That's the key Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  11. You can see my Taccom video and the prior testing of the RIA Long on my YT channel -- here is the VR80 playlist to make it easier: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSsfu3Wb_35goEdjS6Pk7oIZ9hRTMjx_V
  12. Mine shoots soft and pretty flat with my 132pf 147g loads Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  13. Getting closer ... Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  14. I was definitely in on the first round and mine did ... Hell I'd call RIA and ask to be sent one Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
