    2011 Open Gun Main Spring

    I run a 17# in all my 2011's. I just don't want to risk ignition issues for no real gain to be had by using a lighter spring.

    9mm Major powder choices?

    I have used powders 1 and 2, but have yet to test number 3. In my guns WAC which is a faster powder for open only needs about 6.9gr. to make major with a 124jhp. For me 7.2gr. WAC or 8.2gr. HS6 were good loads with 124 jhp at 1.160". These seem to be pretty common among most 9 major shooters. Start lower and work up slowly with coated bullets I think you will need less powder to get the desired results.

    First 1911 or 2011

    The 1911 sear and hammer have a very small contact area. This area can be damaged by repeated dropping of the slide on an empty chamber. When you do this the slide and hammer come forward with greater speed than when loading a round from the magazine and can cause damage to the sears primary surface. So long story short, if you have a nice trigger job and you drop the slide on an empty chamber over and over it won't be nice for long.

    Help with 9mm major

    I can't offer advice on your particular gun, but that seems way low to be having pressure issues. My first thought would be that you have a short chamber and the bullet is contacting the lands.

    New Atlas Open 2011

    It will depend on the model and options you choose. If you are interested give them a call or email them they are super nice people and will be glad to discuss the options they offer.

    New Atlas Open 2011

    Not sure about the Chaos but the Atlas I had was about 53 or 54oz. Kinda wished I had kept it, it was a nice gun just could not afford to have 3 open guns. My Limcat weighs 43oz. I think if you only have one and train with it it the weight is not a problem, but when you have more than one they need to be close to the same.

    JP or MBX for new PCC rifle.

    Both are great guns, not really and apples to apples comparison though. The JP is more customized thus costing more, the MBX is pretty much set except for a few options. The MBX in my opinion is an excellent value for what you get. I think you would be happy with either one of these choices.

    Looking for Limited and ESP platform

    No doubt, I bought an Eagle in 40 so it could serve as my IDPA gun, and a backup limited gun. I really like the 2011 platform, but it is not cheap!

    Looking for Limited and ESP platform

    Eagle or Marauder both work for IDPA. 2011 magazines are not cheap but they hold up well and if you keep an eye out you can pick used ones up for a decent price.

    New Barrel Shopping

    I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1018781574/ar-stoner-barrel-ar-15-9mm-luger-lightweight-contour-1-2-28-thread-1-in-10-twist-chrome-moly-melonite It is about the same as my JP barrel as far as accuracy goes, I tried 124 xtreme RN loaded 1.15" and they plunked with no issues. I also tried 125 blue bullets at 1.135 and they were good as well.

    Why no love for WAC?

    I have had good luck with WAC, but I understand people find other powder more appealing. I have used WAC, HS6, and AA7 and have loads that I like with all of them. I also agree that WAC is on the fast end for 9 major powders.

    Limcat Razor Cat, Czechmate Parrot or Atlas Chaos?

    I own 2 Limcats and both are great guns. 1 is a Spearcat that I bought here on the classifieds, I shot it for a year then had a Beastcat built. These guns are both tack drivers and are super reliable. The wait time for Limcat is not that bad for a custom build, but the one in the classifieds is a heck of a deal.
