  1. As mention earlier, Green Crimson 206. Run both at the same time. My laser is set just under my red dot on the target at 18 yards. Red dot on top with the green dot just under. My tight shots and upper A zone, head shots are great with both dots on the target. To me, I feel that it draws my eye to the dot faster with both illuminated on target.
  2. Drop a pencil , eraser first down the barrel and pull the trigger. If everything is right, the pencil will shoot out of the barrel
  3. Springfield and have some tuning done, or call Jeff Abernathy at Tommy Guns.
  4. Hyperfire and JP as a second choice
  5. Derek built some very nice pistols. Hope you did not spend a fortune. Nice pistol. Enjoy and welcome.
  6. I don't know why they never brought it out. I was on board/
  7. I have had two of them. Both were very accurate and ran fine. If you get one for a decent price, the gun won't hold you back.
  8. Same here. Works well. I did add a small base pads that did not change capacity on a couple of mags. Cheely is some of the best going and Matt is a great guy.
  9. One other thing that I did not notice anyone mention was lube or how clean the pistol is. The springs will help and should get you where you need to be spring wise. Get some Brian Enos slide glide and don't be afraid to use it. Rails, barrel lugs, bushing, as well as a good liquid lube. Don't run it to dry. I use the B/E light and Advanced Weapons and Technologies lube. Do the springs and lube and you will be running fine. If that does not help, you may have another small issue.
  10. Rich is no longer doing work the last time I talked to him.
  11. Pistol mounted is the way to go. As you found out the laser helps a lot as well.
  12. Satern rifle barrels make top notch barrels. They will do 7-08 Had one and it shot great
  13. Heavier spring should fix the problem
  14. In conjunction with the red dot. Red dot with the green dot directly under the red dot. Two dots on target really grabs your eye.
  15. I use the green 206 as well, but in a different way than anyone mentioned. I have mine mounted just in front off my Holosun and I use mine in conjunction with my red dot. I have my red dot sighted at approx 18 to 20 yds. The red dot is on top and just below is the green dot. To me, it seems to draw my eye quicker on the target and I feel that it lets me be more accurate on hard targets with hard cover. Also you may pick up the green dot coming up on a close target before the rifle is even mounted, if you get used to it, that may be quicker as well for you. Just me but you also have the benefits of the hip shots, hard leans ,etc. Works for me, if anyone tries it let me know what you think. Tommy Roupe
  16. EGW makes a magwell that works well and not a crazy price. I am XXL hands as well.
  17. If you have not invested a lot of money, sell it all and buy a Sig MPX. The recoil is so much lighter with the Sig. You will have to pay for the lighter recoil because they are not cheap. It is night and day in the recoil. Shoot someones Sig side by side to a AR. If you stay with the AR platform, don't make it to lite, remember weight is on your side sometimes. You will be shocked. All of this being said, I had 2 Sigs, they were flawless, I loved them, but expensive. I still shoot my AR. I am lucky that I have not had the medical issues and I am a fairly good sized fellow.
  18. You won't be disappointed with Glenn, he is a master with a mill. I have had Glenn do some work and his work is world class.
  19. Not trying to side track your post on the hole in the frame, but it appears your grip might be cracked according to your pic. Just mentioning it.
  20. My father in law has some.. He has been selling some off. His cell is 252-531-8962. Tell him if you call that I (son-in-law Tom Roupe) told you to call.  His name is Bill, he is a HK Expert.

  21. Simple physics. Weight will help a light pistol. Ask Travis Tomasie about the weight of a pistol and transitions. I agree that Travis is not your average shooter, but he can articulate the light vs heavy pistol , plus it is different for each shooter. Weight is a good thing in a too light of a pistol.
  22. Yes, it would work on all platforms. Your RIA is not a bad pistol.
  23. EGW makes a mag catch that raises the mag a little. I am guessing that your barrel is not ramped either. Small tweaks. I have built 4 of those RIA's and they all turned out great and work well.
  24. Nate, welcome. Rich has just given very solid advise. He has the years and skills to back it up. You wont be rich working on guns, but if it is your passion, that will get old also dealing with the public, (Sorry Public). The only advise that I can give is to never forget, that is your name on that work. If you have the pride in your work, and you will have to stand behind your work, again because it is your name. You will run into those folks that know more than you do, and there will be nothing you do that you could satisfy them. Guess what they will work on smearing , your name. There has been a lot of folks that had the talent that started in the gunsmith business and produced good work , until the greed hit, meaning they tried to do it cheaper for higher profit. My first grip that I ever done was the same as the last grip that I done when I quit doing them. You will learn to work faster and more efficient, but don't scrimp on your quality. Only you will be the first person that will destroy your good name. Keep the pride, enjoy what you do, and you will make it. Good luck.
