  1. I received my "Defcon 1" brake from Grizzly Gunworks. It looks really promising with the angled baffles. Unfortunately the bore was cut .022" too small for the chokes to pass. So it is on its way back to Canada to re-cut the bore.
  2. Defcon is the 3 port chamber. It has a bigger volume and port angling than the TACCOM, I'm hoping for better impact on muzzle movement.
  3. I've got a Grizzly Gunworks "Defcon 1" threaded brake inbound. They ship from Canada, so it should be here next week. I have run an AT RIA "Short" comp (old style). It made the shotgun front heavy and did not provide enough recoil mitigation for my liking. It did spread shot about 20% more than no brake I have been using the TACCOM brake since last fall. It is light weight, but not terribly effective at recoil mitigation. It does not deform the shot pattern. I'll report to the group once I get my Grizzly brake installed and run it through few matches.
  4. Has anyone installed a Grizzly Gunworks muzzle brake? They do make some in M24x1 threads. I'd be interested in a review. Grizzly Gunworks Muzzle Brakes
  5. V6 Muzzle Brakes is about to release a brake for the VR80. I've shot a Saiga with one of their brakes and it was amazing. I spoke with them and they are planning to release the brake this month or early March. Also, Hayes Custom is working on a mid barrel comp.
  6. T&N sells a drop in trigger. I have one on my VR80 and it breaks at 4.5#. I've got about 800 rounds on it and it runs perfectly. You can buy T&N MK1919 charging handle. Theres a small 1/8 tab of metal than needs to be removed (10 minutes with a dremel) and it makes a great charging handle for the VR80. I ran the Taccom handle for about a month and had issues with it. The polymer wings kept coming loose. Here's a link to the install on the MK1919 charging handle: MK1919 charging handle modified for VR80
  7. I put the "light" spring in my mag latch and it really improved function. A3G Mag Release Spring for VR80
  8. Anyone in the industry have plans for a larger charging handle? Something aluminum or titanium with knurling would be a huge plus. (I know Taccom has an ambi handle. That design is not fitting my need.)
  9. Get on the FB group for the VR80. One of the Rock Island reps is on there. A few folks have posted about missing OEM parts & the rep responds quickly.
  10. 1). Larger diameter, knurled, longer by an inch. Titanium would be a plus. (Please let me know when you have them available, Id order one in a heartbeat. I love this shotgun, but the charging handle is a design flaw by size. ) 2). I have only used the light load piston. Mine ran 100% thru break in and now cycles 1200 fps without a problem.
  11. I've got one of the first batch they made. I've been running it for 2 weeks. It has a very clean 4.5# break and has ignited every shell I've pulled a trigger on. HUGE improvement over OEM. It also comes with anti-walk pins.
  12. I really need a bigger, better charging handle. Anyone in the industry working on one?
  13. My birdshot CMore is a 12 MOA dot: Big size for fast shooting. Too big for distant slugs on steel. For slugs: our area ranges (North Texas: ETTS, & NTMG) have slugs routinely from 70 to 120 yards. Usually a standard IPSC or an A-C IPSC. The triangle reticle on the RMR allow very quick and precise slug shots at that range. Holds with the CMore at that range are just not reliable with a big dot.
  14. I run a C More rail way (12 MOA). Also an RMR at 45 degrees for slugs. I run the 12 MOA triangle and use the tip of the triangle for POA. The optic is holding up fine. I did need to loc tite the mounting bolts.
