Looks for Target

Looks for Target (4/11)

  1. New Stock 2 has slimmer grip neck (e.g. slightly deeper cut under trigger guard and on the back of the grip). It also has much more aggressive checkering than the old Stock 2, presumably because Tanfo has switched to new machinery, which is probably also the cause of more sharp edges around the slide and frame. I have one of each, and I really like the feeling of grip on the new Stock 2. It cuts into my skin and tears open the callus formed by the old Stock 2. The bad thing is I cannot rely on my backup (old Stock 2) being identical to the main (new Stock 2). I feel I have to adjust the draw slightly for a consistent grip when switching between these two.
  2. I have tried pretty much all options: - Skateboard mob grip tape - Dawson grip tape - 3M safety walk tape - Talon grip tape What I use 100% now is Talon grip tape. They are more expensive, $9.99 for 5''x7'', but they have just the right thickness and grit. Dawson has good grit but way too thick. Mob grip tape for skateboard and 3M safety walk tape are not for hands, and you can feel they are not only too thick but also too coarse.
  3. Whats your Load MilkMyDuds ???Mj 3.2gr N320 + 147gr Bayou FP + Winchester small pistol primer loaded to 1.138OAL
  4. 126PF is too risky to bring to major matches. I run 130+PF, e.g. 147gr @ 880+ fps out of barrel. Sluggish feeling has more to do with lube and springs than to the small differences in PFs.
  5. There are plenty of great sandpaper grip tapes. Talon, Dawson, etc. I love all of them. The only problem is how to make them stay in place... I grip really hard and the weak hand palm would shift the tape after just 1 dry fire session, especially on a not so smooth surface like that of the Xtreme grip panels. So far I find the only way is to apply super blue on the back of the tape. If your grip is clean and de-greased when you apply it, this stuff sticks and stays on better than any tape I've used. It doesn't shift around. The stuff I have on my grip right now was put on last summer and no shifting so far and I grip pretty hard too. Arms like and orangutan. For the different tapes that do shift, I've always just run a bead of super glue gel around the inside of the outer edge. Just peel it up about 1/4" all the way around, run the bead and tamp it down with a flat screwdriver (ask me how I know not to use your fingers) and you're all set. It won't come off till you take it off with acetone. Thanks for the information. I am gonna try these mob grips.

  7. Yes, after I sanded down the wood grips, they really work well with the grip tape. The only drawback is that the wood grips are too thick for my small hands. I tried to grind them thinner but at one point it nearly broke at the thinnest part. I guess I over did it, even though they still feel too fat. So I stopped using it fearing it would snap at some point.
  8. Is there anything like the CZ VZ Diamondback grips for Stock 2? I have the Xtreme and Henning grips, but neither is even close to the gripiness I'd like to have. I ended up putting on grip tape on top of the Henning smooth (without any texture) grips, but the grip tape still slides and glides after each session. The only option left seems to permanently super glue the grip tape to the Henning. How grippy is the SSI scale grips, compared to Xtreme and Henning?
  9. Need lower bore axis and better slide stop position. Even then there is no way to compete with Walther PPQ M2 5'' I don't see why HK would want to get into this market full of sharks.
  10. My best is 1.80 @ 7 yards all alphas. Usually in the 1.9 to 2 seconds range. The time does go faster in Summer and slows down a bit in Winter. Sent from my GT-N7105 using Tapatalk
  11. Did you get a chance to measure the trigger reach length? Thanks.
  12. www.roadrunnersports.com The 2E, however, was not much wider than the standard width. I have to wear 4E to have a comfortable toe box.
  13. For people with wide feet: I stopped wearing Salomon because their shoes are typically very narrow with very small toe box. I started to develop big toe pain after a couple months since I started wearing SpeedCross. I then ordered the Salomon FellRaiser which has 2E (extra wide) but still did not work. Finally I tried with New Balance 1210V2 (Leadville). It has so much better cushion with thick sole and also offers 4E. Very roomy and comfortable. No pain at all after a couple 12-hour matches. I recently also tried the Asics Sonoma that is a very inexpensive trail running shoe (only $50) but with great 4E roomy toe box. It's cushion isn't as good as the Nimbus but I have worn it to a local club match and very comfortable after 8 hours. My most favorite running shoe is still the Asics Nimbus with 4E - I'd only run marathon/half with Nimbus.
  14. That will depend entirely on which backstrap is installed Can you please measure the trigger reach with the smallest possible backstrap? I am looking for small-hand friendly options. Thanks!
  15. Can someone please measure the trigger reach length for the DA, as shown in the attached pic? Thanks! For example, the CZ SP01 Shadow DA trigger reach is a bit too far for me short fingers.
