  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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 thri
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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 corr
  10. Check my last post. I added to it after clicking post haha Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. 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 w
  12. Nowlin does now make barrels with the c/p ramp Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. 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
  14. 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 be
  15. Setting up matches on the local level can be enough of a headache. I can not imagine the amount of work that went into this scale of an event. Thank you to everyone who was involved! I shot like dog s#!t but still managed to enjoy myself quite a bit. It seems there are some people that are not fans of universal, I’m not one of them. I’ve enjoyed every match I’ve been able to shoot down there- and I’ve yet to come away thinking it was easy. I only wish I lived a little closer so I could shoot there more regularly. Can’t wait for next year! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  16. Another one for Go-Guns here. I have them on my limited guns and my open gun. I have pretty good size hands and the way these end up fitting when installed on STI pattern frame holes makes it work well. It would also work well for smaller hands. The rest sits right above the slide stop. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  17. I agree here. If you’re already set up with some 140s or use them in Limited go with 140s. If you’re buying your first set of mags and don’t shoot limited go with the 155s or all 170s. I shoot limited and have 140s for my open gun too, so when I got a 155 I noticed it was a little different to reload due to the extra length. Nothing big but when you’re pushing it the difference between the two could be enough to cause a bobble. And the extra couple rounds don’t make any real difference 99.9% of the time. I find that I rarely use the 155. I’d say best bet if you’re an open only guy would be jus
  18. This looks super interesting to me. Do you have any pics down the sight or comparisons to your previous set up? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  19. This is no joke. I have 2 650s that I loaded 9, 40, 45 on. I eventually upgraded to a 1050 and within the first 100 rounds I wondered what took me so long!! The 650s are solid, but if you’re loading 10s of thousands of rounds you will NOT regret going big and getting the 1050. It’s legit. Add a bullet feeder and auto drive and you’re really on fire!!

  20. I’d definitely be interested in a light weight gun just to check it out. I shot my DVC open for about 10k before adding a cheely steel grip and tungsten GR. I am a big fan of this gun set up heavy. I haven’t weighed it but I’m guessing it’s north of 50oz easily. With this gun I’ve shot mostly 125gr coated lead but prefer the 115 JHP load a little more. It’s got a little more pop but seems more controllable if that makes sense. I would have to guess that a gun weighing 15-20oz less would require a bit more grip pressure to keep tame.

  21. I second the 2.0, and 5”. I shot an M&P pro 5” in production for a season. The 2.0 is head and shoulders above based on grip texture alone. And add an Apex hard sear- boom, all set. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  22. This. By far the first upgrade you should do to any stock gun as far as I’m concerned. Dawson is great. I recently tried a set of Y-notch sights made by Frank Proctor on a Glock 17- They are solid too. The vast majority of my guns have Dawson fiber front sights on them.

  23. I have a DVC open in 9. I like the gun and am happy with my purchase. That said, CZs are great guns- Used to shoot an accushadow in production. If I was already a CZ guy shooting 75s in production or TS in limited I’d probably go with a checkmate. ESP for primarily 9minor. My dvc will run 9minor just fine, but I have replaced the stock spring system with a tungsten FLGR. I think I’ve got a 9-10 lbs spring in it. Admittedly I have zero experience with a checkmate, but if it’s got the same level of quality and reliability as the accushadow I had, then I’d assume you’ll be getting a great gun t
  24. I would agree with the above. The aggressive texture is AWESOME! But I wouldn’t consider it for a second for a carry gun. It would destroy clothes.
