    Thumb Rest

    RHT rest works great on my Open pistol. Not the same positive results on my Limited pistol. Unclear as to why but I have theories...
  2. Hello open shooters. Thinking of swapping my STI DVC grip with wedge mainspring housing on my open pistol for a Cheely e2 aggressive steel. For those that have done a similar swap how does the pointability, indexing differ between the two? I'm sure the grip angle is different but is it dramatic like a 1911 vs Glock or does it mimic a CZ/Tanfoglio feel? Thanks
  3. ATI milspec. Several thousand rounds. Never a problem. Good customer support to get Xtra " Murghy law" parts to keep on hand.
  4. I know this is an older thread but would be great to see it revisited and possibly expanded upon. In an effort to get used to shooting carry Optics, moving over from Limited,I started to research the benefits of kinesthetic shooting since finding the dot on hard leans, angles and close up quickly is definitely a change. Several modern-day practitioners as well as a retired Navy SEAL friend (who has literally been there and back and definitely knows his sh***) preach the benefits of accurate handgun shooting through index (no sights) up to 10 yards and sometimes beyond. Anyone additionally care to share their experiences with index shooting?
  5. Can you describe your feed failures? What is your bullet profile? What were your loads? 115 can be kind of light in some factory loads. What I have noticed when reloading between 135 and 145 grain bullets didn't matter so much but I need it at least 3.1 grains powder to produce enough gas with these weights. This is with a medium fast powder such as Universal Clays or Sport Pistol. Anything less than that would not cycle the bolt enough. As soon as I hit 3.1 grains ejection was about 6+ feet away at a minimum due to the faster bolt cycle rate from a gas-operated firearm. This is also with the original Timney gold cased fire control unit which has a lighter hammer spring and yields on average 3.5 lbs pull. The black cased firiing control unit from Timney that came with the newer Factory MPX competition model has a heavier hammer spring, yielded 4.5 lbs and needed more powder to cycle the bolt fast enough for proper ejection.
  6. Thanks for contributing. Right now I am working with a gen 3 so I will figure out something to do with that large backstrap frame opening. The easy way is to get a Seattle Slug and then grind it flush with the end of the grip to be CO compliant. Seattle slug is 4 oz ,would probably be removing less than half an ounce at the bottom. Not sure how much more epoxy and tungsten would add into that opening beyond 3.5 oz. Also ordered a Jentra extended large-diameter tungsten guide rod. Should be more than twice that of a stainless steel. Taylor freelance brass extended base pad will add almost 5 oz. Yeah I can see me getting close to a target weight I'd be happy running in a proven platform I'm familiar with. Add the short travel,crisp DK trigger system and I think it will be competitive unit.
  7. I appreciate the input but.... + I already own several Glocks with all support equipment + The DK trigger system for the Glock is waaay better then the Legion I have felt + I have as many or more optic mount options with the Glock + Proven long term reliability,longevity If I could add 8-10oz to a Glock I would be thrilled to be 7oz or so lighter than a Legion
  8. Willing to share process of up to 14oz heavier with internal weights? Not denying it can be done. I guess I'm just not that intuitive to see how to get that much weight inside a Glock gen 3 but would love to be able to do it. Thanks.
  9. Cover the front of your optic with a piece of non transparent tape. Do some dry fire like that. Guaranteed when the dot superimposes on the target you will be having a target focus ,no question about it
  10. Thanks for the response. Are you shooting 38 super/ super comp or 9mm? If super or super comp would you mind sharing your load data? Thanks
  11. Good feedback,thanks guys. Seems like sensitivity isn't a concern, feeding in Dillon primer systems works and chronoing is consistent with the popular brands.
  12. Nice. Thanks. Still looking for an alternative though for when availability does become scarce or as a backup option.
  13. So for the .38 Super/ Super comp shooters is anyone using Shooters World Major Pistol powder as a replacement for their VV3N38? 9.2grainsVV3N38 with 124jhp does shoot nicest out of my five inch Brazos with 4 popple holes but the almost non-existent availability of this powder has led me to search for a suitable alternative. 8.5 grains of Longshot with 124jhp is the next best I could find so far. Any opinions or input is certainly welcome ,thanks.
