Looks for Target

Looks for Target (4/11)

  1. Yes. I've only got around 1K on it so far, but it's working as advertised.
  2. Tim--I was just basing the FMJ comment on what BigBamBoo said above. He's shooting 115gr WWB and has noticeable leading in his tube.
  3. I took a look inside my tube last night after 1700 rounds of nothing but coated lead (147gr BBI). Other than some unburnt powder and a coat of carbon, it looked fine. No lead build-up at all. FMJs with an exposed base and uncoated lead are probably a different story.
  4. What would happen if you failed to brush out the tube after a few thousand rounds of coated bullets?
  5. I assume you're talking about this piece: http://i.imgur.com/teGKplN.jpg Max explained earlier in the thread that it's just a regular buffer that's been cut down with the bumper re-pinned. You can also use a Delrin buffer spacer like the one NFA sells. The wave spring addition isn't really necessary to get the benefits of the Blitzkrieg buffer. Some folks like the wave set-up and others don't.
  6. Please tell me no parts of your carbine got near your Urethra
  7. I can confirm the Wilson FP works perfectly in the Taccom Bolt. Shot a match last night and it worked as expected. Hoping it will last a lot longer than the original.
  8. The Sig MPX is probably the softest shooting 9mm carbine due to the locked bolt vs. a blowback system. AR-9s can be made to shoot fairly soft, but it will be more challenging with factory ammo.
  9. I ordered direct from Wilson. It looks like the one on their website here: http://shopwilsoncombat.com/Bullet-Proof-9mm-AR-Firing-Pin-S-7-Tool-Steel/productinfo/TR-AR9FP/
  10. I decided to be a Guinea Pig and ordered the Wilson Bulletproof Firing Pin for my AR9. It appears the transition was cut with a radiused cutter as it isn't a sharp 90 degree angle like the original pin. Measurements are slightly different than the FP that came in my Taccom Bolt: Wilson OAL:2.6385 Large Diameter: .1490 Small Diameter: .1050 Taccom (Faxon) OAL: 2.6545 Large Diameter: .1505 Small Diameter: .0990 I installed the Wilson Pin in the Taccom Bolt and it appears to be good to go. Hoping the fact that it's made from tool steel and doesn't have the sharp corner will improve longevity.
  11. Good luck with the build David. It will be fun. Probably the highest risk operations will be fitting the slide to frame and the barrel fit. Be especially patient with fitting the barrel. There's a lot going on with how the barrel interacts with the slide when fitting the upper lugs. It's easy to keep filing away trying to get more lug engagement when the barrel may be springing at the front. Having someone local to you that's done a few barrel fittings is extremely helpful. Fitting the lower lugs is more straightforward, but requires patience to get a solid lock-up on the slide stop pin. Laying out and drilling/tapping the holes for the scope mount also needs to be approached with care. Make sure you center punch the locations and use a short bit or small end mill to get the hole started so it doesn't walk on you.
  12. Eric: What bolt are you running the JP Pin in? Their website says not to use it with anyone else's bolt. Just wondering if it would be a good option for my Taccom bolt. Thanks
  13. Found this picture at Strongside Tactical. It says it's a Wilson, but it doesn't look like the one on the Wilson website. It doesn't appear to have the sharp corners that most of them have. https://www.strongsidetactical.com/wilson-9mm-ar9-s7-firing-pin-spring/
  14. I've got an SBR'd MPX and an AR-9. I shoot the AR-9 better in most situations. I'm quicker and more confident on transitions due to the longer handguard as mentioned. I have also been able to tune the AR with recoil components and loads to run quick with consistent dot return. Those same loads make the MPX sluggish (heavy bullet, fast powder). I need to do some more experimentation with lighter bullets in the MPX to see if I can get it to run to my liking. Here's my quick take/experience on each platform: MPX (SBR): - Expensive + Very low recoil implulse + Short barrel excels around tight obstacles - Limited ability to tune the recoil system - Limited aftermarket trigger options - Slightly complex gas operated system - Running coated bullets leads up the gas valve and tappet - Less tolerant of running dirty + Excellent/reliable magazines built by Lancer - Slower for me to reload AR-9: + Less Expensive - Slightly harsher recoil impulse + Extensive tuning options (buffers, recoil springs, etc.) + Quicker/more confident transitions with longer handguards + Lots of trigger options (although some can have reset issues or double depending on the bolt) + Simple blowback operation + More tolerant of running dirty - Fragile firing pins - Magazine system adapted from other platforms, requires optimal feed angle and barrel opening + Faster for me to reload with pistol size magazines
  15. Anyone tried one of these: S7 Tool steel Bulletproof 9mm Firing Pin http://shopwilsoncombat.com/Bullet-Proof-9mm-AR-Firing-Pin-S-7-Tool-Steel/productinfo/TR-AR9FP/
