    PT Evo grip, easiest way to finish?

    If you want it black try a black oxide finish. No surface build up and no loss of aggressiveness. Should be able to find a local plater to do it for $50-$100-ish.

    2011 grip size question

    Your thumb should be on top of the safety not under it.

    First 1911 or 2011

    Why rack the slide at all during dry fire? I use snap caps so I load one the the mag load and rack. After that I just cock the hammer.

    X-line/Geppert triggers

    I just fit one to an STI plastic grip. You will need to do some fitting. The height of the trigger is the biggest issue. It's really not a big job. I used a set of needle files and took my time. File a little and test fit. Repeat until it fits properly. There are Youtube videos to show you the way.

    thoughts on second shot always to the left

    Trigger control and possibly pulling off the target too soon.

    Mr. Bulletfeeder tips

    I found the a little silicone lube in the dropper helps. Out of the box mine was bone dry and had similar issues with 124gr 9mm. Played with the adjustment and just couldn't get 100% reliable. Lubed it and have been good to go since.

    C-more VS RTS2 OR SIMILAR?

    RTS2 all the way. If for no other reason, battery life. The dot is much brighter than the standard C-More. I turn the dot on at the first stage and do not turn it off until the last stage. I use 1-2 batteries a year.

    Open Mags (9mm)- Need advice

    MBX for Limited and Open for me. Zero issues.

    Hammer falling to half cock

    I had a similar issue with that trigger. What I ended up doing was unthread the trigger show from the bow a couple of turns. I started with it threaded down as far as it would go. If I remember right 2-3 turns out gave me a proper functioning trigger. No issues since.

    Keeping Powder in the Press

    The biggest reason I see for dumping the hopper is safety. If you are loading with several different powders on the same press you need to make 100% sure that you do not inadvertently mix powders. I label my hopper with the powder and drop weight and verify the drop before starting each session.

    How slow is slow enough?

    Looking at your 5 results your accuracy is improving. Dry fire will get you comfortable with your new gear. Changing guns is a big deal. I shot a Glock in Limited when I started. Shot that for almost two years. Became very comfortable with it. I made the decision to switch to a 2011. It took me about 3-4 months of dry fire, live fire, and 4-5 matches a month before I started to bond with the new gun. If you put in the work the results will come. Read the books, watch the videos and practice.

    Limited Minor

    Unless you shoot all "A's" very fast Limited Minor is not a good idea. G17 mags get a Plus-6 extension for 23-rds. I use TTI's. Buy once, cry once, 2011.
  13. I want to practice with the same gear I shoot with. You would be surprised how big of impact small differences make.

    Atlas Trigger

    I just fit one to my STI grip and it took a fair amount of filing for the height to fit. Width was ok.
