    Busted MPX mag

    When I broke one the same way: 1. SIG never asked how old it was 2. They called me back and recommended the TTI extanded pad after the already issued the RMA So for me I have some standard rules in dealing with giant companys like SIG: 1. Don't volunteer any info above what they ask for 2. Keep all your stock parts for anything you change 3. Buy things that could be a high risk from someone like Brownells with a 100% no hassle guarantee .. SIG has no choice but to replace it to brownells that's the deal to be In with them..additionally 100%sure Lancer will have to replace to SIG any broken mags SIG warranty's out I don't plan to drop mags with extended pads on purpose now..I keep 2 /34 rounders and 2/ 24 rounders around with shortened spring guides and flat Speinger Precision aluminium pads for classifers or any other sitauation I know I am dropping a mag..

    Products to make shoes sticky?

    Tried the Speed cross 4's and hated them outside as well as inside... moved over to this: https://tacticalgear.com/salomon-speed-assault-black-black-magnet?dl=b&gclid=CjwKCAiA7vTiBRAqEiwA4NTO6yr-IzwbcVf23oTLYEsZKP5nGKrTDKK9sDJnPeLbLu5QCbJtT5r9lRoCLj4QAvD_BwE sole compound is vastly different than the Speed cross, I have zero issues on concrete or any other slippery/ wet surface..

    Opening Mpx gas port

    Speer 115 or 124 gr TMJ or hand loads that are equal in velocity per bullet weight... your stated goal is to have a MPX that runs your production and AR9 load.. My goal is: have my MPX's run the same cycle time as an open pistol or an AR so that I don't have different timing Have minimal movement in the sight Have a 19" drop @ in the 150 -180 yard range we shoot dedicated PCC matches that place targets out that far

    Opening Mpx gas port

    I had one barrel port opened and I do reget it ... I have to run the most restricted gas plug on that barrel.. if you not going to put a comp on and try to drive it then YMWV...

    Opening Mpx gas port

    an MPX is NOT blowback... on my 2 MPX's ..to see maximum effect I have needed to play around with: load and / or factory ammo choice Gas port size ( gen 2 guns seem to be out their with either 0.0520" or 0.0625" so far no idea yet on the "competition" ) Gas plug size The MBX comp can build back presser ( resulting in over gased at the piston) with the right loads or reduce port presser with other loads ( resulting in under gased at the piston ) all depending on powder burn rate + peak presser due to the 13.2" of dwell time in the barrel .. lots of room to play... but I only have 35,000 rounds on my 2 MPX's

    Opening Mpx gas port

    if you ever plan on putting a comp on an MPX I WOULDN'T recommend opening the gas port.

    Hearing protection PCC

    So have you asked for a noise suppression set? I would state my case to the VA for the need of noise suppression... might get a set , might only have to cover the price delta out of pocket...

    Hearing protection PCC

    You didn't have your hearing loss rated by the VA? Pretty standard for almost everyone retiring so that they Will cover the hearing aids when you need them...

    New Sig MPX ?

    I don’t believe there are any changes that are not backwards and forwards compatible with the existing Gen 2 guns: · No name change ( i.e. Gen 3, Virtus, ect..) · Looking at the pictures the upper is the same length to the hand guard separation point · The hand guard exhibits no additional attachment hardware added For me I really don’t care for the hand guard there are some things that just wouldn’t work for me: · Don’t care for the taper on the 6 o’clock surface getting wider and angled down toward the muzzle · Don’t care for the little section of 1913 rail on the 12 o’clock left all the way forward. it’s too far forward for a laser for me and I would never put Iron sights on this platform ( for me that is the only thing this could be used for) I am neutral on the barrel 16”: + Lets you play with different comps without pinning and welding - Additional swept bore and dwell time past the 13.7” of the old barrels. This will help people that ran higher presser ammo (NATO, Speer LE TMJ, European spec) or reloaded with medium -slower powders ( N340 , 3N37, Silhouette, ect..). Going to really hurt the people that run lower presser ammo ( SAMI spec, AE, WWB, anything aluminum cased, ect..) or reloaded with fast powders - Old barrels were 13.7” with pinned and welded FH for 16.25” . New barrel is 16” + 1.75” to 2” ( a MBX is even lounger adding 2.5") comp so getting close to 18”. I don’t know about the rest of the ranges but our local MD’s have started putting down tight to the walls shooting areas ( 18”-24”) that force a PCC to break the gun totally out of your shoulder to maneuver inside of so an extra 1.75”-2” is a critical thing

    MPX Comp

    I don't think sig tracks in line continuous process improvement by serial #...when we start playing with: Gas pot size Gas plug flow Muzzle comps Barrel length Recoil spring rates Bullet weight Powder burn rate We have steped in to having a position driven open gun with a stock attached...lots of variables that effect each other.. changing one can yeald a gun that has intermitant stoppages that can be hard to diagnose ... if you get it right you git super flat , soft shooting and minamal dot movement ... just like setting up an open gun to maximise your shooting it is EXTREAMLEY subjective from shooter to shooter not a+b=c

    New Sig MPX ?

    I don't currently have any velocity problems in the 13.7" my go to loads are 115gr JHP over either VV N340 or 3N37 @ 1410fps that matches the Speer 115gr TMJ @ 1410fps that is my go to factory loading... used 13.7" for 2 AZ state matches so far with farthest shots @165-187 yrds. I would estimate the 16" barrel would put those loads above 1500fps ...

    New Sig MPX ?

    Buddy of mine has one from the link posted above on the way... Interested to see it but I am unsure on some of the changes: 16" barrel + comp = not convinced on this I am happy with the 13.7" + The MBX comp on my current 2 New hand-guard = not convinced on this I am happy with the lancer Carbon fiber on my current 2
