  1. I had a S&W Pro Series and while it was a fine gun, it was hard to find sights to replace the 3 dot sights that came on it. Because it was going to cost so much to get it how I wanted it for USPSA and IDPA, I traded it and bought a Sig 1911 Max. My only complaints with the Sig are it doesn’t fit standard 1911 holsters and it is a Series 80 (same as the S&W) Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Sorry, I thought I responded earlier. I have not tried OAL at 1.18. I have been loading for this gun at 1.125. If I get a chance I will run some of my limited rounds at 1.18 through and let you know.
  3. You take out the firing pin block from the slide, and the two pieces in the fire control group that activate the firing pin block. That leaves a gap. You fill the gap with a spacer designed to do just that. $9 part. https://www.shootersconnectionstore.com/TJs-Custom-Gunworks-COLT-1911-SERIES-80-TO-70-CONVERSION-SHIM--P2284.aspx Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. I have a Sig Max 1911 in .40. Took out the series 80 parts and installed a spacer, worked on the trigger and it has a nice 2.75lb trigger. Worst part of the Sig’s are they don’t fit a normal 1911 holster. Double Alpha makes one specifically for the Sig or you can add an extra spacer to a 1911 holster. I think the Sig Max is a great option for the money. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  6. I may be in the minority but I think new USPSA shooters will benefit most from starting in Production or Single Stack? My reasons; while you get to shoot minor (easier), points matter more so it forces you to work on accuracy. You have to reload more so you get more practice doing that as well. Stage planning is a little more complicated, so you get to work on that more. After spending a year or two in Production, a move to Limited will seem easier but your skill level will be better. Ultimately it all comes down to how much you are willing to invest in practice. Both dry fire and live fire practice. Getting some training from a reputable teacher will teach you how to practice to get the most out of your time. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. We won't let a squad leave the sign in area without a designated RO and preferably a certified RO. All RO's shoot for free so there is usually no problem getting someone to step up. If there is only one person on the squad that has RO experience, it becomes a teaching moment for the rest of the squad. Time to understand how to run the timer and score targets...etc. If you want to play the game, you have to participate in the whole game.
  8. I have a Springfield RO that has the tightest chamber I have ever seen. I’ve had some feeding and extraction issues with hand loads but most factory ammo works great. Same hand loads work fine in all my other guns. Might have someone ream the chamber to make it more friendly! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  10. My Titan will run my hand loads that didn’t pass the case gauge. I keep those rounds for practice and everyone has fired without a problem. I do inspect them for any defect before they go into the practice bin. Every gun is a little different. I have a Springfield RO that the chamber is so tight it won’t shoot most of my hand loads but will shoot most factory ammo all day long. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    I just took a private lesson with Steve Anderson. I can’t recommend him enough. He teaches you better ways to shoot but most of all how to practice. It was a 4 hour drive and worth every bit of time. Best bet is get 2 or 3 friends to go with you. We worked for almost 7 hours straight and I was exhausted, more mentally than physically.
  12. I am down to only being able to see the fiber optic dot in the notch but no clear view of the whole post. It works OK but I'm sure it causes me to leave some points on the table. I tried having my bifocal at the top of the insert but when I could see the front sight clearly, the targets were too blurred. I use Rudy Rydons with the RX insert with my normal prescription. Think I am going to have to give Hunters God a try. A few of my buddies have switched and say it made a huge difference. Contacts have never worked for me so I am stuck with glasses. Fighting off the move to a dot gun but I know it is coming. Getting old sucks! However, it does beat the alternative!
  13. My Titan will run any factory ammo I have tried. Purchase without worry. Magazines are the pick things in 2011’s IMHO. MBX mags run most consistently in my Titan. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. Are you having the issue with all your mags? If so the mags may not be the problem. If it is just one or two of them, the mags may need some tuning. If you can rule out the mags, then I would try different recoil springs. If that doesn’t fix the issue it would almost have to be the OAL.
