  1. https://www.eurooptic.com/Meopta-Optika6-1-6x24-Illuminated-223-30mmSFP-Riflescope-653611.aspx Need to update their distributors, etc as well
  2. Not familiar with PPC, but best of luck. The calculators are pretty good but only as good as the info you put in, so drop could be a little more depending on the bullet profile and velocity etc. Saw this web article where they were getting 2" drop at 50. https://www.mcarbo.com/9mm-trajectory-chart-vs-40-s-w-trajectory-chart.aspx. Not sure if the .6" would make or break you but just wanted to offer the additional info. Hope you have a fun match.
  3. According to strelok PPU 124 fmj gr travelling at 1120fps out of 1/10twist barrel sighted in at 25yds will drop 1.4 inches at 50yds. Google "ballistics calculator" and you should find plenty of options to enter your data into. No idea if the factory sights are set at 25yds. Have shoot some run and guns with 50-75 yard targets and found that my trigger press is a lot worse than my sights.

    Which for first Glock?

    you may want to look at the 45mos if you have big hands and plan to run an optic.

    Crocs, let your feet breathe.
  7. So could you use a modified BAD lever in place of the trigger? Asking for a friend.
  8. Here is a decent video series that covers lapping, sleeve compound etc. It is a 4 part series of brief videos that go over the aspects of building an upper. I am sure there some things that someone can find fault with, but I found them helpful when I decided to to put together a more accurate upper.
  9. the Athon 1-6 above is not a bad choice especially at the price linked. Put one a a back up gun and it is heads and shoulders above the the strike eagle I have in brightness and clarity (not saying much) Have only used it about 3 times but it has been solid so far.
  10. Used the egw mount on a glock to try out a red dot. Worked fine. Used it for a few months to see if that was the route I wanted to go. As mentioned above it is not optimal but it is a great way to try out a rds without making permanent mods to your pistol. The dot will be pretty high compared to a milled slide but it worked fine for me.
  11. Black hawk omnivore is easy way to play around with a light. Push button retention holds well but can slow you down if you do not practice a little. Have considered adding a piece of stainless wire to lock out the retention. It is a well made holster that does the job and is compatible with lots of pistols and optics.

    Barrel Fitment

    " tighter than stock fit and thought that if the slide were to wear to the barrel that could cause problems down the road if I swapped back. not wanting to wear the slide to the cheap barrel if that is possible." Could turn out to be a great barrel and hope it works well for you. My only concern was if the slide would wear to the tighter barrel take15 will get you 15% off if anyone else decides to try them out.

    Barrel Fitment

    "My question is why buy it if you were iffy about them??" Lot of positive reviews made me feel okay about purchasing it. Bought it to try a comp and figured give it a try and If it didn't like a comp, I wasn't out much. Really had no concerns until I noticed the tighter than stock fit and though that if the slide were to wear to the barrel that could cause problems down the road if I swapped back. Also do not expect a $50 barrel to last as long as a factory or KKM etc so hence the reason for not wanting to wear the slide to the cheap barrel if that is possible. Everything about the barrel looks okay. Rounds fit okay, gun goes into battery. Rifling looks shallow and the finish could be better but it is what I would expect at the price point. Will post up results compared to stock when I get a chance to shoot it.

    "Shoot it. It will be fine" Thanks "What Brand Barrel?" This amazing $51 delivered masterpiece. http://www.combatarmory.com/combat-armory-barrel-fits-glock-19-stainless-new-9mm-match-grade-barrel-threaded/ Not something I want to make a long term commitment to or alter my slide by using.
