  1. Anyway, the ADM Recon H mount (or any other 2” high mount) is a viable solution.
  2. Oops, too late. It seems the screw pocket in the Holosun is deeper than the trijicons. I took about a 1/16 off the bosses and it mounted up tight.
  3. Has anyone mounted a Holosun 407/507 to a Zev slide? The screws that came with the slide are bottoming out on the threaded bosses but the dot is still loose. How did you resolve this issue? It seems like I’ll need a different profile screw, or to shorten the bosses and possibly the screws. Just curious as to whether anyone else has had this issue. Google hasn’t been much help.
  4. I had shoulder surgery in February, so I’m probably still a ways away from being able to offer any substantive opinion on the scope.
  5. Just in general, maybe some 2/3 gun at some point just for giggles. I’ll probably take some classes and try to add some semi regular training with this gun in, but I have no burning desire to compete with it.
  6. I’m assuming the Warne offset is the A645 that they market for a front sight for the RAMP mount if you were to run irons? If so, that tells me that the Warne ramp won’t solve my problem and I guess you need to go with a super tall (recon H or geissele ) to get the gigantic windage knob out of the way.
  7. If so, what mounts are you running? Purchased a Warne XSKEL 34mm mount and the offset dot is obstructed by the windage knob. Wondering if the Warne RAMP would fix this? Or if I need a different mount combo?
  8. @benos Have you considered selling the forum? Licensing your name and whatever..?
  9. dropper die works much better on the 1050 but now if I run the press at anything other than super careful, I get bullets flopping over at the next station. I have adjusted the bell from non existent to visibly too much with no improvement. anyone have any suggestions? Search has turned up stuff I’ve been trying.
  10. bump up the power factor a bit until the springs break in.
  11. What material are you using? How grippy is that texture? Your guns look amazing.
  12. 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.
  14. Cant beat those PD match packs...
  15. Agree with above, 23+1 to start, reload to 22.
  16. 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.
  17. Noted. Pretty sure that's where I will wind up.
  18. 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....
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
