  1. I looked at both and wanted to spend less $ so I went with ammobot. I’m very happy with it. Altho I do get a little jealous when I see people running their mark7 and doing other stuff while it cranks out ammo. When my press runs I have to stand there with the stop switch in hand. Others go a lot faster but I set mine on about 1800 and it runs very reliably. At that pace I don’t really spend a lot of time loading throughout the year. I tend to just keep the press set up and then pop in and crank out 500 or so at a time. Usually takes less than 30 mins and i never get too worn out by the process. I am very happy with my money spent on the AB. I’m sure I would have also been happy with the mark7. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. Yea there’s a lot to be considered if loading commercially. For personal you will be able to load much more than you’ll shoot on the 1050 before it is worn out. And if you decide to automate it you’ll be in heaven! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I loaded for a several years on a 650. Got to the point where I was loading and shooting 15k+ per year. At that rate I was spending a bunch of time reloading, which is not something i particularly cared for. Finally I upgraded to the 1050. And then not long after added an ammobot. I could not be happier. At high volumes like that you will never regret upgrading. If you LPD various calibers at much lower volume then you will probably prefer the 650/750 for ease (and cheaper cost) of caliber swap. Even before I went the automated route I was very impressed with the 1050s ability to hammer out ammo quicker and more reliably than the 650. The 1050 is built like a tank. If you get it and run it for long enough to determine that it didn’t come from the factory with any defects, it will crank out thousands upon thousands of rounds without major issue. The difference in warranty did not give me pause. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. I can’t speak to the mark7 as i don’t own them. I know several people to do and some love them, I’ve also heard complaints. What I do know about is the ammobot / 1050 setup. I got my 1050 and loaded a couple thousand on it manually then upgraded with the AB. It does everything I wanted. When loading I do have to stand there with the stop switch in hand in case of the occasional hiccup. But mostly it runs smooth at about 1800-2000 rpm. At a cost that was dramatically cheaper than mark7 options I am ok with this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. 2nd that. It’s the autocomp / coated combo. I’ve loaded about 15k 9mm major with a mix of JHP and coated. The JHP are low smoke the coated are like a locomotive. Mine have been SNS 125s, but exactly as you describe Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. I loaded on 650 for several years. As my round count went up I finally made the jump to 1050 and then got an ammobot. Holy crap. I couldn’t be happier. It absolutely cranks out ammo and my time spent in the loading room has dramatically dropped. Best investment I’ve made. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  7. I just added a 510c to my open gun. It previously had a DPP. I don’t notice the weight change. I’m sure it’s heavier than the DPP but I’m not picking it up and feeling like it’s all the sudden heavier in a bad way. As said above, once you remove the mount and protective hood you drop a lot of the weight from the 510 out of the box. I haven’t put any range time in with it yet, but I’m thinking I’m gonna be a big fan of this change. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    Racker ?

    Depending on your grip low rackers on the left side (if you’re right handed) can interfere with gripping the gun, and potentially your strong hand thumb when the gun cycles. I have a STI dvc and my racker is swapable, so i put it on the right side to avoid ripping my thumbnail off. I would prefer it to be on the left side, but the one that came with the gun sits too low and I haven’t paid to change it out with something that’s angled higher. That’s why you see some rackers designed with a bend backwards and up. To move it back away from the support hand and up away from the strong hand thumb. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I’ve got this kit in an STI Edge. It’s excellent. I’ve also got a Nowlin Arms kit in a custom build and it’s very solid as well. Nowlin has zero pre travel and a good break. It’s heavier than the Cylinder and Slide kit, but very good. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. AmeriGlo GL-436 Hackathorn Sight Set for Glock 42/43, Green/Orange https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00XP546FW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_YpLBDb2GFHZQ3 Ameriglo makes excellent sights that are very affordable. I have these on several glocks. Blacked out rear and tritium dot with bright orange on the front post. And only $56 shipped. Tough to beat. Otherwise if you’re not looking for tritium and want fiber front check out frank proctors sight set. Same black rear with a fiber front sight. Those are solid as well. https://frankproctorperformancegear.com/frank-proctor-y-notch-glock-42-43-48-fiber-optic-sight-set/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Yea mostly limited. Shot some production with the LTT.. it’s not quite as good of a production gun as the shadow 2 or Stock 2, in my eyes.. but it’s a great gun and one that I’ve carried a little as well- which is something I would never do with the cz or stock2 (due to bulk).

  12. I’d say depends on what you’re gonna do with it. If it’s for competition go for the 92x and added weight benefits. If it’s for carry go for the LTT. I have an LTT and it’s a great gun. But if it was only gonna be a USPSA gun I’d rather have gone with the 92x. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Good looking gun. For thinner grips check out Lok or VZ. Langdon tactical has some thin (VZ) grips with good texture on their website for $69. The thin grips definitely make a difference, I much prefer them to the factory width. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. I have used them a pretty good amount. They’re my favorite magazine for single stack. I went with the mags with the anti friction coating and had great luck. When I saw the price tag on them I was also skeptical but they proved to be 100% solid. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. 10lbs hammer spring seems VERY light. I want to say 15-17 is the norm for those running light springs. I’d be pretty worried about getting constant light strikes at that weight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
