  1. Over the years I have Purchased 2 M&P 15-22's. I am left handed. The first is setup like my 3 gun rifle for short range practice. The second, I purchased for my left handed grandsons to shoot, you can't ignore the cool factor. On both these guns the thumb safety was molded so that it was reversible for right or left hand operation. Two months ago I purchased a third rifle for rimfire rifle optic shooting in local steel challenge matches. The safety on the most recent rifle is not reversible. I contacted S&W, the rep said he would send me a reversible safety. The one I received was not. A second call to S&W and a different rep told me he didn't know much about the rifle but would find out and call me back. A few days later the rep did call back and told me it was a patent infringement issue and they had to stop making the reversible safety. If you are a lefty and want a left hand safety, you will now have to go to an after market part. A standard Ambi safety will not work on the 15-22 as the lower is thicker. I purchased a BAD 15-22 compatible safety that works well.
  2. I sincerely appreciate your reply and information!
  3. Several months ago I ordered 2 Grams Basepads and some springs. Got a call from Mr. Grams basically saying their basepad tooling was worn out. They were working on new tooling. At the time they did send me the springs I needed. A month or more ago I sent an email asking for a status update and got no reply. I checked their website and the basepads are still listed, reordered, no reply. Does anyone know what is going on? Service from Grams engineering in the past has always been first rate.
  4. Jerry won the 1990 Nationals at Barry with a Tasco dot. There was a lady shooter, I believe Canadian, with an Aimpoint on her open gun. Team Springfield shot the P9 with open sights in the 9mm JLE. The JLE was "just long enough" i.e. 9X21, to be legal as 9X19 major was illegal with the 175 power factor.
  5. I drink Woodford Reserve as my go to bourbon. When I want to celebrate I drink Woodford Double Oaked. When I crave something different it's Redbreast Irish Whiskey.
  6. I got an email from JP this afternoon. If I return the broken firing pin, they will replace it free of charge.
  7. I was cleaning my carbine and decided to disassemble the bolt after 400 rounds, 3000 total thru the gun. To my surprise the firing pin came out in 2 pieces. Maybe it broke on round 1 or maybe round 400, I don't know. There were no malfunctions of any kind since the last time I cleaned the bolt. I have ordered a replacement and a spare. If you have one of these carbines you may want to check the firing pin and keep a spare handy. I called JP and emailed, haven't heard back. This is the first issue with the gun. I am still very pleased with its performance.
  8. I have an XDM OSP in 9mm. The gun has a Powder River drop in trigger kit. I shoot a 130pf load with 147 grain SnS bullets. I have a Powder River solid guide rod, still using the factory recoil spring. I am looking for suggestions on recoil spring weight to calm the dot down.
  9. I re-sent my info and got the discount in an hour or so. The MSA's are ordered, should have them on Tuesday.
  10. My JP GMR 13 has a very slow barrel I guess. I use 3.4 grains of Titegroup under a Zero 147 hp.
  11. I believe they are different companies.
  12. Anyone have any experience with DS Arms products? I am looking at a complete upper in 300 blackout. Not planning on completing with it, just to have one. Thanks!
  13. My reloads with Titegroup and 147 grain bullets are slower in my 14.5 inch JP barrel than a 5.25 inch XDM.
  14. I traded for an XDM OSP to shoot Carry Optics. With a Leupold Deltapoint Pro the gun is very accurate. The trigger leaves a lot to be desired, it's long, heavy with a long reset. Are people installing trigger kits or sending the guns out for work? Carry Optics is a pleasant sidebar for me when not shooting Open. I don't want to put hundreds in the trigger. What say you!
