  1. What material are you using? How grippy is that texture? Your guns look amazing.
  2. So the promised replacement for the Edge has a $3400 msrp... seems legit.

    Front Sight Removal

    I generally let ports remove the front sight for me.
  4. Agree with above, 23+1 to start, reload to 22.
  5. My first SVI was an older one. I inquired about work similar to what @Hawk21 wanted done. They didn't tell me that they wouldn't do it, but they did quote me a price that said they didn't want to do the work, basically new top end money for a breechface/barrel fit... this entire thread makes their interchangeable breech face a moot point.
  6. Noted. Pretty sure that's where I will wind up.
  7. I'm going to be going through this exercise as soon as my range opens back up. I've been shooting 17's, but picked up a Gen 5 34 on the cheap. Am going to A/B it pretty hard vs the 17 over a month or so and make a decision from there....
  8. I really don’t think you’re going to gouge the limcat insert. Broken feed lips would be more of a concern, as panda mentioned above. I had dry fire only mags with cracked feedlips, I didn’t notice them getting any worse... but they were garbage mags to begin with.
  9. Elbow issues have forced me to shooting minor, so i no longer have the gun. I suspect that the magwell would be holding up just fine but with less finish on it. It is the best magwell out there, imo, and I would still be using it if I still owned 2011's.
  10. No sir. I have not. I will send them an email if I still have issues when I set it up on the 1050. Moved the ball bearings to the upper holes to see if that effects anything. I haven't had time to experiment with it. Hoping to spend some time looking at it tomorrow.
  11. It does it just enough to piss me off, to be honest. I've sanded on it enough and owned it long enough to where I doubt that DAA is going to swap it out. The spring fix below the tool head that I tried ate the finish up pretty good where the end of the spring rubbed on the inner part of the die. My options are most likely: keep messing with it hoping to figure it out, ignore the problem hoping that it eventually fixes itself, or drop another $100 on a new dropper die. I'm still mentally somewhere in between option one and two.
  12. I don't think that's the case. It is usually in the same position as pictured in Seehawer's pics above... to utilize the clip as an anchor point for the spring apparatus. I've been monkeying around with it to see if I could get it working better prior to setting up the 1050. I think I honestly got a sh!t dropper assembly when I bought my conversion kit. Main purpose of that pic was to show that the tube wasn't bumping into the powder hopper as previously mentioned as the potential issue by someone on this thread. I keep thinking that whatever is causing the issue will eventually "wear in" and the problem will go away. 20k rounds later, I'm not so sure...
  13. no worries. I’ve looked for burrs. Tried different bullets. Nothing I’ve tried has got it working 100%.
