  1. I finally bit the bullet. I had one in the “cart” about 50x and never pulled the trigger till a couple days ago when I found them on sale. $859 shipped- thought that was a good deal since they’re 1000 from LTT website. But now I’ll have to add the trigger job in a bag. I’m a CZ guy too, and skeptical that the beretta can be worked as well as the cz, hopefully it surprise me! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Good point. But I’d have to guess the post manufacture gunsmithing to get that bushing installed was the culprit for the Accushadow.. and from what I can tell the LTT is a mix of diff berettas but all work is complete when it leaves beretta (minus any internal trigger work by EL) so it would be safe in that respect. Thanks for the response! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. is the Beretta 92 Elite LTT legal for SSP division? I’ve searched around and can’t find an answer if it’s good for SSP or only ESP. I guess my question is about the extended mag release that comes on them. Any knowledge is appreciated! Thanks!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. I think they could be helpful. I have one for 1911 and use it at my house which allows me to shoot considerably more than I would without it. Even tho it’s not as good as traditional live fire practice it sure beats not shooting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. https://www.nowlinarms.com/product/pro-match-action-kit/ Nowlin pro match action kit dropped in and has excellent clean break and very good reset. Right around 3lbs. Awesome trigger. If you shoot in Indiana you’re welcome to test drive mine! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. I dropped a Cylinder and Slide ultra match kit into an STI edge. It’s listed as 3.5 lbs but is definitely closer to 2. Excellent crisp break but not great reset. I also have a drop in pro-match kit from Nowlin. The Nowlin is a hair heavier, probably close to 3, but has less overall movement and much better reset. Of the two I’d go Nowlin if I was buying again. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. With a trigger that light I would not recommend touching it till you want it to go off! Haha. As far as weight goes I would LOVE to have a 1.5lbs trigger that I trusted to be reliable. I haven’t found one yet unfortunately. I’m sure they’re out there. I would agree with above that there’s no advantage to going heavier. But I don’t think there’s a real noticeable disadvantage on a stage either. I played with breaking 2 lbs last year on my limited gun and had hammer follow issues all year. This year I had a custom gun built and it’s got a 2.5-3lbs trigger in it and I’m loving it. I would be thrilled to have the same trust in it and get it tuned down to 1-1.5 but after last season that ain’t happening. Truth be told I actually made GM in Limited shooting a borrowed, stock, STI DVC (while my gun was getting worked on) and the only major match I’ve ever won high overall I was shooting the same stock DVC.... it definitely didn’t have a 1lbs trigger.

  8. This^^^^ I also own both and use them the same way as mentioned above. Totally agree. I love the deltapoint for my open gun. I love the RMR for my edc Glock 19. They each fill that role well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. If you have no experience with a red dot sight or how to operate or zero a dot, it really isn’t that hard. First, set up a USPSA sized target and put a paster on the white side in the center of the target. After your dot‘s been mounted but before you make any adjustments I would recommend the following. Start by firing one shot at 5 yards holding the dot on the paster and being careful to make the shot as accurate as possible. If the impact is within several inches of the paster in any direction I would back up to 10 yards and fire another shot. If the dot is still within several inches of the paster I would then back up to 15 yards and fire a group of three. I would then consult your manual and make adjustments to the site accordingly to bring the shot on to the paster from the center of the group that was fired. This might take a few groups to accomplish a good zero. To finish up I’d fire a 5 or 10 round group to confirm the gun is grouping is consistently. You can replace 15 yards with whatever distance you would like to have the gun zeroed at. If the bullet impacts considerably far away from the paster at the closer distances you may need to make large adjustments from the start to get the bullet impacting near the aiming point so that you are on paper at the further distances.

  10. I do not believe the Walther Q5 match has correct co-witness height sights. And unless I’m mistaken, totally possible, the rear sight comes completely off when you mount the dot. When you are co-witnessing through the optic you should not need to bottom out the red dot adjustment. If both the rear notch and front post are able to be aligned inside/thru the glass then it will likely take minimal adjustment to position the dot correctly over the front sight. If you are trying to do that without a rear sight you are definitely not going to be zeroing the dot. If you don’t have the ability to correctly align the front and rear sight thru the RD then you should ignore the front sight post when you Zero the dot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Check my last post. I added to it after clicking post haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Co-Witnessing means to be able to see the iron sights and align them thru the glass of a red dot sight. It’s a means of having a back up sighting system available in case of dot failure. Lots of times that means a higher than traditional iron sight is needed. I am pretty sure the M&P Cores come with tall irons that will accomplish this. An easy way to get a good start on zeroing your red dot would be to adjust it so that the dot sights right on top of the top edge of your front post when the front and rear are aligned. You might still need some adjustment to get it dead on but this will be close. This will also make “finding the dot” a little easier for you until you get some reps in and train past that problem. Just draw the gun and align the irons like a normal gun and boom- there’s the dot Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Nowlin does now make barrels with the c/p ramp Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. That doesn’t seem like the normal experience. I’ve had 3 STI’s- 2 edges and one DVC open- that all fed off the MBX’s very reliably. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. I just had a build completed by Spencer Race Guns using a Nowlin .40 bull barrel and pro match action kit. Very happy with both. The trigger kit yielded a really nice crisp trigger with almost no pre-travel, and very little (if any) over-travel. The barrel looks very well made and has produced tight groups with my reloads.. which were just the bullets I’d cranked out last season for my STI. I had egw trigger parts in my STI, and while it produced a good trigger as well I actually prefer this new one from the nowlin parts. The nowlin is a tad heavier (still sub 3lbs) but had less movement before and after the break ... granted the egw parts were installed and fit by a gunsmith and the nowlin parts were literally just dropped in.
