  1. Buddy brought a brand spanking new 10mm hunter over with a bag of Patriot Defense goodies today. His hunter is blued with the cool factory slide cuts. A VERY nice looking rig. But... He wanted it to be Da/Sa and not SA only. Plus, he wanted it to have the same trigger pull as his S2 guns. He brought the full set of PD springs, titan hammer,R5 interruptor and a used curved trigger. Gun got a detailed polish (and it needed it!). Was gritty as a windy day at the desert. Everything went in easily and again the R5 continued to impress. Full functionality with
  2. Hi, a buddy is getting a 10mm hunter. I've been reading that the factory recoil system is a bit light for full power 10mm loads. I found tromix online and they have a solution. Looking for any reviews from anyone that has used them.
  3. The $ difference is 20 bucks. The ability to control the fit for that nice positive engagement is far easier shaving the bump. Plus, the "bother" of removing, disassembly, trim, reassemble, test, repeat 5-7 times is gone. Both work, and your point is correct (on future hammer swapping). Still, preference is bump after mostly doing the sear.
  4. No, i don't think it makes any difference
  5. Hello all. A buddy came by with a fresh stock 2 and a pile of PD parts. He wanted a lesson in initial polishing and installing all the parts. From the factory the gun was 10# 15oz DA and just under 4# SA. Polished up all the normal spots with extra attentions to the trigger bar lifter. Changed all the springs to the Patriot Defense Optimized. Trigger, sear, 15.5# hammer, firing pin return. Polished the interior of the hammer spring and strut. Installed the R5 rather than the bolo as i wanted to see how "drop in" it really was. Used a brand new Titan ha
  6. I was watching a vid and the competitor was given make ready. He drew, then proceeded to move the entire 12-ish ft width of the shooting area, dry firing using the pistol. Returned, then loaded and ran the stage normally. I could hear the MR command, but no request to move and dry fire the stage. (It might have been done pre-filming? Not that it matters to my question). Q: what is it proceedural for leaving the start position (assuming no permission) ? 8.7.1? PS enter as "general" ? Q: Does he also get one for 8.7.2? It's not a "walk thru"... or is it? (He

  8. Just found out this profile is not yet on the web, but you can call...
  9. I think they are just .3560. That's what my guns prefer, so i never looked or asked for any other diameter.
  10. I'm swtiching to a new bullet supplier and did the usual tests and measures to see how they stack up. I thought it might be helpful for newer reloaders to see what is involved in figuring out if a new bullet is promising or not. Not an expert, but this is how I go about it. I measured the weight of 12 randomly pulled bullets. 125.5 125.5 124.8 125.1 125.8 124.5 125.3 125.1 126.2 125.2 124.8 124.8 Average weight was 125.2 gr Same bullets , measured the diameter; Eleven were 0.3560, one was 0.
  11. Bogies. Any less would start to get slippery when sweaty
  12. This is a Steel Challenge rule question, which are different than the normal USPSA rules. I hope this is the correct place for this question. Specifically Steel Challenge rule 5.3.3 states "5.3.3 “Stand by” This command should be followed by the start signal within 1 to 4 seconds. It is recommended that the start signal be consistent for each string started for a given competitor—a cadence is desirable in Steel Challenge. The interval may change between competitors, however." In the SC endorsement it was stated that a predictable cadence was the goa
  13. I had some "issues" with posting. Only got this one to go. Its the thick version. I also have a thin set to play with. I will say, if you miss your grip on a draw, you ain't gonna just slide the gun around with these bad boys in place. These are "cost savers", because you won't ever need to buy pro-grip again! And obviously, these are "in the raw" and not anodized. The ones he will sell will be anodized.
