  1. I'm thinking you are too short on that load. I run my 147grn CamPro plated truncated at previously 1.095", and lately I've been running them at 1.130".
  2. I noticed something today, cleaning and getting ready for a match. Some of my factory mags would not lock slide back if I inserted them with no rounds on a closed chamber, and also would not drop free. Looking closely in there it looks like the slide stop nub was sitting beside the follower shelf rather than on top of it. I had never noticed this while shooting, they always lock back. So I think the recoil of the last shot, or maybe the path it takes while pushing on the last round, puts the follower in the right place to press on the stop, which is key for dropping free.
  3. I haven't tried a TT Diamond, though I am fairly certain it is just a TT Adjustable with the black coating and minimum weight adjustment allowed to go lower. Oh, and they jacked the price again. I actually have one in my car right now, couriering it to a local buddy, so I might get to try one soon. I would also mention that TT's tend to go on sale a few times a year on the manufacturer's website.
  4. I've had and used in this order: CMC single stage, TT adjustable, 24c, Calvin. CMC is decent, definitely a single stage, but not especially light or great on reset. [2 years] TT is a great two stage, breaks like glass, but reset is very faint. [2 years] 24c is a very nice single stage, strong reset, but didn't work with Seekins 60degree safety so it had to go. [2 months] Calvin is my current choice. Super light single stage and strong reset. [9 months]
  5. Definitely looking forward to seeing pics of inside of slide.

    New Armanov grips

    Exotic, a new file format that Windows can't see. First time I've ever encountered it.
  7. Interesting, google-fu found me another report of this same problem. Though I'm experiencing it with hot handicap birdshot rounds. Crazy part is I replied to the topic. I might try removing one of the shell latch springs like the guy says.
  8. Here's my latest nagging issue with my Versa Max. Has anyone seen this before and knows where I should start addressing it? I'm experiencing a new kind of Versa max malfunction this year. The malf is, I'll be shooting, and randomly the gun will go bang, cycle what feels normal, I pull the trigger for the next shot, no bang but I hear a shell pop out of mag onto lifter, I rack it, no shell comes out of chamber and it feeds the new one on lifter, then it runs again. So for some reason pulling trigger isn't releasing a shell out of mag on occasion. I'm currently thinking mag spring or something in the trigger group, because I swapped the magazine and trigger group from my A gun to my B gun and the B gun did the exact same thing within 10 shots.
  9. In lieu of any concrete advice I spent a couple hours with my mags and a vice, squishing them on the sides at the forward ridge. Seems to have corrected one specific thing I can reproduce, that being with 7 or 8 rounds in the mag, the round near the mag catch hole is loose and slides forward and backward freely. After putting some major squish force into them, they don't rattle that round any more. Not sure if that is related to my specific problem, but I think it is. I'm guessing my problem is that the mag is too wide, allowing the rounds to bypass each other at the bullet where they are smaller diameter than at the rim.
  10. I've been having this quite often on a number of my TS 9mm mags (dimple pinned to 10 rounds for Canada). Usually with 7-10 rounds in the mag, I'll be shooting and suddenly have a jam, and when I look at the mag I see the top few rounds totally loose, and this two round cross-over action happening. Usually the only way to empty the mag is to remove the floor plate and shove a pokey in there with force. Any tips? I just cleaned these mags very well a few days ago. They were used in an IPSC match, disassembled and quickly mag brushed, then a 3gun match. By the third round of the 3gun match this was happening again. It is definitely more than one of my mags, as previously I marked the mag that did this and took it out of rotation. Is this a situation where I need to squish the middle sides of the mag in a vice? Is this a situation for "tuning"? What is this kind of jam called? My rounds are 147gr plated flat nose at 1.097". Minor, shooting in a TS Orange.
  11. Very interesting! And this can be done to a TSO 9mm with one of these? https://cajungunworks.com/product/10x-barrel-bushing-tactical-sport-7520tsx/
  12. Yes the semi-circle slivers of brass off the mouth from the powder measure funnel are indeed strange. If I let them build up, I eventually get a bunch of them stuck on the funnel. I just live with it.

    DQ event

    I don't know the answer there. I was on a squad that didn't contain either the shooter in question or MD, I didn't even hear about this until well after match had finished and everyone had left range.
