  1. I used the sdm exclusively until the end of the 2017 season. If you’re shooting uspsa, icore and steel I think it’s the right front sight, especially if you like it bright or are just starting with revolver. I switched everything over to smaller Dawson’s. My main reason to try it was at the world shoot I noticed how small a lot of the targets were and I was covering too much of the target with the sdm. The sdm is basically cheating when going fast.
  2. Very. 2 guns had some serious issues frame issues. You know the kind that the factory calls “within spec.” I got his back from the machinist again last night, final touches this weekend and out it goes next week. The other frame isn’t as lucky. Brand new, never been fired and it’s bent. Classy.
  3. They’re mean. I made one for myself as well. As soon as the new comps come in I think we will all be shooting them.
  4. Apex pins are for Federal only. That’s the problem. They have a habit of not working so well with other primers. And C&S pins like to break, watch out for them.
  5. Exactly. That’s what I was getting at earlier in this thread. Very important in this gun.
  6. That’s because starline brass and 929s don’t get along. The starline 9mm is thick, and is very sticky in a 929.
  7. Serious question, not trying to be an a hole... Do people consider the brass as part of the reloading equation? I mean, all our rounds use the same bullet, brass and powder, but people just assume the brass from different manufacturers is close enough? Wouldn’t that basically be the same as assuming 2 different manufacture’s bullets of the same weight shoot the same? I’m pretty sure none of us are shooting 1moa guns, but wouldn’t a reloader want to take that variable out of the equation? Especially in a revolver where clip fit is an issue...?

    How’s that high grip working out for you?

    S&W TR8 ?

    Actually it had started when I bought the gun, and it got worse as I used it. I spoke with the original owner later and he was using a very light charge of wst in special cases, so our conclusion was that his charges may not have been enough to seal the primer and it started the erosion. Either way, I really liked the gun, I just couldn’t make it work for me. And unless you have a titanium cylinder in your 327, the carbon barreled 929s are lighter or the same weight depending on options. And I can buy/build as many as I need, unlike 327s and titanium cylinders.

    The center pin hole on the breachface? Don't these models have a steel bushing in this location? It did, but the scandium around it was just being eaten away. Deep pits.

    S&W TR8 ?

    It did, but my flame cutting was around it. Almost like the steel should have been larger. It also really deep pitting around the centerpin hole.

    Are you looking to remove a 327 barrel or a 627 barrel?

    S&W TR8 ?

    I saw the same on my 327. Wear in the slot, wear in the centerpin hole, wear on the top strap from flame cutting. That’s what got me to start making those carbon barrels, they come in the same weight as the scandium guns but none of the downsides.
  14. I’m in favor of ditching the 6 round neutral rule. But it to be honest, if you knowingly showed up to a match with a limited gun that only had 6 rounds you knew you were at a disadvantage. Hey guys don’t get me wrong, I’m 100% for bringing more revolvers out to play, I just think we should protect what we have first, then grow our membership before we start to look at more divisions.
