  1. Late response, if you haven't done so already get the one for Stock II. The Stock III is unique because of the "rail" built into frame. (underside of dustcover) All the other square trigger guard frames do not have accessory rails.
  2. I went with a JP J Point . The main reason was weight, it is less than .5 oz (1/2 ounce) which made it easy to stay under 45oz on the Stock II for USPSA carry optics class using a dovetail mount instead of milling slide. In comparison the fastfire III is 1 oz and Delta Point Pro is almost 2 oz. Luckily I was able to find a used 1 with the Stock II mount for a great price. It supposedly had over 10k rounds on it when I received it & I have put close to 4k in it without any problems. I also like that it uses a light sensor to adjust brightness (which actually works compared to my cmore STS2 auto brightness) and is always on unless you put the cover on for storage. I have had it about a year now and haven't needed to replace the battery yet. The only down side is if your shooting from a relatively dark area (like indoor shoot house) into a bright background, the sensor dims the dot and the brightness outside at the target washes out the dot. Other than that I've been very satisfied with it.
  3. Your buddies Canik is a terrible option for you!! Send ME his info & I will take it off his hands. lol Just kidding, that would be a perfect combination to start with, it's a great price and gives you the option to shoot 2 different classes or as others have said sell the red dot. The gun shoots fine out of the box, only problem I've had is the stock recoil spring is to heavy for lower power factor handloads. If you run factory ammo is fine, or change recoil assm. as others have mentioned. Just do it, and have fun, you will decide what modifications you need as you go & get better. Welcome to the sport, have fun.
  4. @kneelingatlas I will hold off on the barrel for now, please keep me informed on your progress, I would like to get this done asap. Thanks for your help & insighr!
  5. @kneelingatlas Are you willing to do the work (for a fee of course) or do I need to find someone? If you are willing to do the work, put me down for 1 of the comps. Let me know so I can get a barrel on the way!
  6. @kneelingatlas If I can't use a 9mm LTD cone barrel are the 6" barrels available? If so from who?
  7. @kujo929 Maybe you or someone else can give me some insight. I would like to build a Tanfo for USPSA open class. Would like to use 9mm aa opposed to 38su and if possible convert either my 40. cal LTD ( which I have a 9mm barrel for) or my 9mm Stock II, or combination of both. If possible would like to be able to switch back to original configuration. I may be looking for the impossible, but am open to suggestions. I am staying away from Gold Team V-12 because of what I've read about making Major power factor with that configuration.
  8. @kujo929 Will Cayon Creek comp work with cone barrel? do they sell the comp. or only sell if they install? Is knellingatlas selling the comp. he is designing? will it work on Ltd. frame & slide? Thanks for your help
  9. @IHAVEGAS Thanks for the reply. Have you installed a bolo using a stock hammer, or only with one of the Xtreme units? Has anyone tried the PD "Bolo" with s stock hammer? Am I correct in thinking the interrrupter/disconnector controls the sa pre travel or is it the hammer? Thanks again for the help!
  10. @MemphisMechanic I just p/u a new Stock II. I have following your suggestions/videos on polishing the internals, so far the front 1/2 is completed (trigger & bar assm. plunger assm. inside of frame. Haven't done the hammer, sear assm. yet as I'm trying to decide what parts I want to replace with aftermarket stuff. The only other thing I've done is installed a stk. hammer spring that has a couple coils removed that I had around from my Limited build. Other than changing all rhe springs to lower trigger pull, the only thing I dislike is the amount of take-up or pre travel there is in sa. Would installing a Patriot Defense "Bolo" disconnector take care of this problem? Also which 1 pc. sear would you recommend to replace the 2pc. my intention is ro stay with the stock hammer unless you or someone else can honestly say it is a worth while addition. I would appreciate any comments from others as to what they would change if they where to build a new Stk. II. Thanks in advance to all of you that have contributed to this invaluable thread.
  11. Has anyone tried Unica/Tanfo comp? I can't tell if its for a straight or cone barrel. Tanfoglio uses it on a factory produced open gun available outside USA. I'm not able to upload photo but this link shoul work. https://patriotdefense.com/product/unica-tanfoglio-muzzle-brake/
  12. You didn't mention if you have a production class (9mm) gun now, if so why not start with it. If you are looking for something that you can shoot in both limited and production, last time I checked none of the Canik models are on the legal gun list. Otherwise I agree with others that you should have a .40 cal if buying a gun to shoot limited, the scoring difference is hard to make up for. I started in limited with a Glock 35 with the common aftermarket parts and did well with it. It was very reliable, nice not ever losing points because the gun didn't go bang. Unless you're a high A or Master shooter who is being held back because of the gun, a glock or m&p, XDM should be fine to start with. If you are having fun & decide to shoot limited full time move up to a Tanfo or 2011 then (after a Dillon reloading press). Either way go find the 1 that fits your hand and p.o.a. best, shoot as many as possible 1st and go have fun. Good luck, SDTMatch40
