    SVI Hybrid/Sight Tracker/Island Barrel

    I have a couple variations of this style barrel, one of them an SVI. I'll give you my 0.02 1- I don't think it adds any weight to the front of the gun, it does reduce reciprocating mass of the slide which tends to reduce felt recoil. 2- Its not that it isn't useful on any other style gun (like an EDC gun) but it isn't cheap technology. Most people want something less damaging to the pocketbook in he event of losing it. There may be some draw backs to function in an environment where the action could get fouled, dirt or funk buildup around the island would prevent it from fully going into battery, potentially making the gun useless. I like the concept and Loe the way it functions in competition but I wouldn't carry a gun like that every day. Size, weight, reliability, expense etc are all factors. 3- It is frequently used on 9mm guns. SVI, Atlas, and Limcat will make them in 9mm and in .45. Im not sure why you think it wouldn't be considered.

    true 1x 1-6 power scope

    Vortex razor is your best bet. The NX8 is not bad but the eye box is not as great. Love my razor
  3. I have the same issue with Alpha X I bought the damn thigh pad and it still has a bit of a hitch every few draws. Very disappointed in this overpriced POS. $200 and I have to take it apart and file it to make it work as intended? Buy kydex fellas.

    STI EDGE in 45 ACP

    What ammo are you shooting? I have an edge in 45 and it’s wearing a 15lb recoil spring at the moment. Wolff makes good springs. Or start with the spring that is on the guide rod you have now.

    Custom 2011 is doubling/tripling

    I’m familiar with NFA regs, I’m not too concerned about being hauled in for a malfunctioning gun. Seems to be running good now although it added a bit of weight to the trigger. I may take some of the tension back out of the disconnect leaf. It’s still a very crisp triggger so I might leave well enough alone.

    Atlas Gun Works Titan

    I havent noticed that to be an issue. I run coated bullets at 1.185 and they feed in my Nemesis without a problem. I had an issue with my Atlas a month or two after receiving it, Cat sent me a label and they covered shipping both ways, had it back to me in about 10 days. They are very nice pistols, I do love how it operates. I dont have unrealistic expectations of perfection, but I do expect good customer service for the price I paid. So far I have not been disappointed in how Atlas treats me. I would buy from them again.

    Thanks for the information. Im always interested in learning more about keeping these things running. By outside pins do you mean these (referred to as trigger adjustment pins) https://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-tools-supplies/general-gunsmith-tools/trigger-job-tools/trigger-job-hand-tools/trigger-adjustment-pins-prod677.aspx This one seems to be a sear spring issue but its only been a couple hundred rounds since the fix, so more info is always better

    Follow up, I added a little more tension to the disconnect leaf of the sear spring and it seems to be running just fine now. Thanks for for all the suggestions fellas

    Custom 2011 is doubling/tripling

    Thanks. The overtravel is very short, the trigger feels fantastic but the doubling is costing me classifier penalties. Ill try and confirm via live fire today the grip screws were the issue

    Will do, thanks again

    One of the grip screws was loose (thanks man), I'll get it to the range ASAP and see if that fixed the problem. Would the overtravel adjustment have any bearing on this issue? If the sear spring is an issue, how would I be able to tell?
  15. I have a total custom build from one of the big name builders that is doubling. Sometimes triples Ive had up to 4 rounds at a time. Its an occasional occurrence and I'd like to send it back to the builder to get it repaired but I have a class coming up and there is no guarantee it'll be back by then (builder is very busy). Any suggestions on what the problem may be and is it simple enough to address myself? Thanks for the input
