  1. Yes - they are too long to fit the gauge . They do ship with the flat base plates to make them standard 19 rounders Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I got one on T&E. Trigger is OK- I would still mess with it for competition. Handles very well. Sights are perfect lower 1/3 on a 507C. Magazines don’t gauge at 140. So that sucks. It is a great shooting / handling gun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. In CO if you like a heavy guide rod the 34 extended guide rod from GlockStore adds like 3 oz of mass to the front of the gun. Even without a heavy guide rod - I still prefer the 34 - it's just smoother shooting (slightly). Plus the longer barrel gives you more real estate for manipulations if you go in front of the ejection port. There isn't a huge difference but there's not a huge difference in cost either. I will say my gen 5 barrels are significantly better than my gen 4.

    CO optic

    I have an SRO on order - if the electronics hold up like the T2 RMR then I will have some DPPs for sale soon Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. A complete change of clothes to put on after the shooting is done - rain jacket, golf umbrella, shower cap to put over your gun, golf towels to wipe off mag bodies, mag brush to clean out mags - some extra mags in case your mag goes Sword in the Stone upon being dropped and you're not convinced it's going to run. A trash bag to keep your bag in while you're shooting - though they have those covered shelters that should keep our gear pretty dry. A trash bag to put all your wet clothes in for the ride home.
  6. I remember you! Very cool. Double Tap looks like a fun match - lets hope the rain holds off because currently we'll be swimming the stages.

    CO optic

    PResume for a moment that the SRO doesn't have to be sent back as often as the DPP - what's the hassle of being down an optic worth to you? because it's about $100 more than a DPP presently. To the OP's question - if you were to go for the DPP - I bit on the 2.5 MOA dot - if I did it all over again - I think I'd do the 7.5 MOA triangle - zero for the top of the triangle then when you're shooting fast just treat it like a dot. You don't need the triangle to be as bright as the dot - so on full texas sun days the triangle is a lot easier to see. I was at the range with a buddy with my 2
  8. Yup - my BENOS handle is older than my YT handle.
  9. I compete with GLocks - so a 34g5. I ended up dabbling into CO the cheap way with a 17g4MOS - when I realized I liked the division I just stuck with the platform. I made this thread because a fellow CO guy postulated that the steel frames are harder on optics than plastic ones - so I asked the same question on this subforum and the glock one - so far the CZ has the highest round count optics going. It seems so far if your DPP is going to fail - it will fail between about 3k and 8k rounds
  10. Sounds LIke i"ll be competing with you in CO then!
  11. On glocks you have to press the front of the button to get it to work- the glockstore screws into the front of the button then cantilevers back. If you press the back of the glockstore button- it activates the front of the actual mag release as that’s where it’s anchored. A buddy after experiencing my GS button got one to replace his Ghost Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. yeah I have 3 DPPs - 2 are mounted and one waits it's turn in the closet. I'm hoping the SRO changes this.
  13. The question sets up 4 fields- I answer the appropriate three three times - the one that was repaired at 4000 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I have 3. The button stopped working reliably - would have fits and I couldn’t adjust brightness. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I am trying to see how long a reasonable lifetime is for a DPP - please share with me the following Still running / repaired ? Approx round count? MOS/ milled/ dovetail? Who did the milling? I will get the party started Running 6000 MOS Running 5000 MOS Repaired 4000 MOS Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. I have the extended rectangular aluminum one from Glock store - the aluminum pad that screws down into an OEM mag release- works great. Tried the tear drop one - too big Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. I am trying to get some data points on what likely lifespans are for a DPP prior to repair. So what kind of lifespan are you getting: Still going / sent for repair? Current round count or round count at repair? Dovetail mount or mill? If Milled - who milled it? Thanks in advance! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Thug plug and shot makes a lot of sense.
  19. Anyone got a line on these? Glock store has the thug plug which is good for a couple oz. I just thought more would be better - anyone aware of options that put 5+ oz in the grip? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. A buddy is looking at milking a stock 1- I know patriot does cuts - but I am looking for actual owners to chime in with their experience- how many rounds are you getting on your optic before failure. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I wouldn’t start in Production. I would start in Limited with any gun you already have. If you don’t have a gun yet- get a cheap G17 police trade as inexpensively as you can and buy some Dawson sights for it. You can try Production, or Limited. With a dovetail mount you could try Carry Optics. Carry Optics is stupid fun. Locap takes a special kind of masochist to enjoy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Point unloaded gun at ceiling - pull trigger , rack slide while keeping trigger pinned to rear. If it goes into battery without you releasing the trigger then you pass Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Tested mine last night with reduced striker and a DPP- still doesn’t quite make it but was a lot closer to making it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. So the lock up when in battery with the 14# spring seems really, really loose. Doing the recoil spring test - it doesn't go back into battery with the Taran Rod / 14#/ DPP mounted. I went back to the OEM - it passes the recoil spring test. Right now I'm running the OEM striker spring. - Would 4.5# striker spring help? I have some ghost ones on hand - is there one brand that's better than another? - how important is it that the gun passes the recoil test? - I don't believe accuracy was affected in a major way - though I didn't do any group shooting beyond zeroing and
  25. Will the GR-1 fit a 35 with SJC without modification? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
