Sees Sights Lift

Sees Sights Lift (7/11)

  1. The 4” is perfectly competitive in idpa. Limited 6 in icore is specifically for 6 shot moonclip guns.
  2. I 100% agree that a perceived advantage is an advantage. I haven’t seen any difference in splits with lighter or heavier cylinders. The fastest runs of splits, and Jerry’s 8 shot records are with full weight 627 steel cylinders. I do personally like the lightened cylinders for accuracy, but only in the sense of torque on the gun when shooting fast. Chris, cut one down and let’s see how it turns out. I love changing things, better or worse. Let me know if I can help, but I’m pretty sure you have a talented machinist. Mike, before you go cutting down a 627 cylinder to make a short colt gun, hit me up. I might have something for you.
  3. Is a lighter cylinder better? Seems like a ton of work for zero benefit. Although I’m not sure I’m one to talk, I’m wrapping things in carbon fiber... Don’t forget to take into account you have lots of spacing issues with the cylinder/yoke/headspace that is different for every gun. Let us know how it turns out! I vote you turn the middle of the cylinder down and see if we can wrap that in CF too.
  4. Lately it seems like that’s the only choice. I feel like the market is a little dry for new guns right now.
  5. Not always. I try to find good ones rather than fix bad ones.
  6. Timing issue like Warren said. My 617s with custom barrels don’t have forcing cones, we just broke the hard edge.

    What if?

    Ugh. Short stroke...

    What if?

    Who did you send it to? Don’t hit me to hard if you already mentioned it and I missed it...
  9. The Mesquite match in March is a fantastic event. Well run, well attended, and well fed. Great excuse to go warm up for a few days for cheap in the desert too. This year I had some interest in another group class after the Mesquite match on Sunday morning. If I can get a group together that would like to do that again, Mark and his crew make it very easy for us to enjoy the stages that aren’t torn down yet and field a small class.
  10. I do shoot the steel challenge. And the stages that were released for the IRC don’t look anything like the exact dimensions in the stages of the steel challenge. Releasing the stages early is completely up to the individuals running a match. Setting them up, shooting them once or 400 times isn’t against any rule book, it isn’t unsportsmanlike, and it isn’t uncommon. It’s also not what’s going to be at the match, so unlike the steel challenge, it’s actually pointless to go through the headache of it and think you’re going to fair better at a match because of it. The one, and only time it should be ruled unsportsmanlike is the actual stages, at the actual range the match is taking place, by an actual competitor. This is why the people who put stages in the ground in big matches typically don’t shoot for score. Please don’t call people scumbags for something you’re clearly unfamiliar with.
  11. Icore has every right to change the stages. I think that’s a great choice on their part if that’s what they think will add fairness to the IRC. But setting up stages, complete or partial, is called practice- not unsportsmanlike conduct.
  12. You’ll bring the rear up .023ish. Have a look at an aftermarket rear as well. Bowen’s are typically considered the top of the options. And try a Dawson .125/.215 as well. Nice that you can swap sights so easily on that gun, it’s easy to try all the options. The SDM is a very bright front sight, great for going fast and point shooting, but the sight picture is sometimes overpowered by how bright that fiber is.

    What if?

    I think his prices are very fair.
  14. The front sight on your gun doesn’t require any tools to remove or install. You just slide it back and pull it up, it’s held in by a spring and pointed cap. Google Smith DX/Classic and you’ll probably find some videos on it. There’s gold bead fronts that came on 45s that will just pop right in there. Also SDM and Dawson are popular. SDM if you like a huge, bright fiber, and Dawson for a more clear, precise image.
