  1. On my AR9 I run it without a riser and like it just fine.
  2. Good point! Coated with Sport Pistol gives me no issues.
  3. Someone at Tandem Kross pointed out to me that the result of this process is lead that is really easily absorbed by anything. So watch handling it. I actually quit doing it after it discolored my SS comp. I just use a small screwdriver or a dremel now. I would think FMJ would be best for the comp. Coated plated bullets lead with Titegroup or other hot powders. Makes it a real challenge to clean.
  4. Anyone have one of these? Curious how it compares to a Blitzkrieg as well as how it works with short stroking.
  5. Backing up what others have said. Drive that gun into your shoulder. Like gripping the pistol, the more you do it the tighter the groups. Remembering to do it in the midst of a stage is always a challenge.
  6. I do not have any experience with that brand, but will comment that for Glock lowers, Glock mags are the way to go. I've tried various aftermarket mags, and nothing beats just a plain old Glock mag for reliability and durability. Not worth saving a few $$ IMO.
  7. I have one on the way along with the Volquartsen trigger. Should I be looking at replacing the firing pin and/or extractor with TK or VQ parts for reliability? Thanks
  8. LOL. Can of worms on here. Personally, I would buy neither. I would build my own AR9, but if you don't want to do that I would say a JP. Many argue that a Sig is softer shooting, but you have many more tuning options with an AR 9. Particularly with JP's bolt and buffer system.
  9. Thanks all. I'll go with a Midway bag.
  10. Anyone have one of these and also have an offset optic or side mounted rail laser? I've seen a lot of guys here who recommend them, I just want to make sure it will actually accommodate offset items.
  11. Situational. You will need to use all three approaches depending on what you are trying to negotiate and what direction you are moving. If you have to break grip and really move, I like the buttstock above shoulder. This works well for weak side movement as well as many times moving weak side with both hands risks a 180. A lot of times moving forward or strong side you can keep grip. For a few steps I try not to drop the muzzle at all. For longer steps I drop the muzzle, but keep the stock on the shoulder.
  12. Field course shooting uses the same principles regardless of the platform. Biggest difference is you will need to learn how to handle a 7# broomstick while moving. Learn how to move to your weak side and backwards. You'll have similar stage plans as open shooters. Don't think sitting back and picking off targets is faster than moving and engaging. It's not. The fundamentals will get you far. Grip. You want a good planted shoulder mount or your second shot will drift. Get this habit now. I'm still battling "soft shouldering" after a few seasons. Gun up. Come in ready to shoot. Keep the stock glued to the shoulder. You save the most time here. Balance/Stability. How much do you need for the position. Have fun!
  13. I spent hours on this once. Then I grabbed a dental tool and it popped right out. Stepped brass is a problem with AR9. FM, Ammoland, IMT head stamps all separate like what you described. Best to sort those out.
  14. Congrats! Welcome the club.
  15. I have one, but it's my backup. I bought mine before their short stroke kit. I short stroke it with a smalley still, but put the smalley in the bottom of my tube with a quarter. It's a much harsher felt recoil than the Blitzkrieg this way, but patterns about the same on paper. I've considered switching to it completely as it's pretty fail-proof compared to a hydraulic buffer. I wish Tim would sell a spring tuning kit for the internal spring.
