  1. I bought a GMR-15 Ready Rifle due mainly to impatience. The only JP part I've changed is the mag release. It came with the standard, but I switched it out to the extended. It gives you more leverage, and it feels easier/lighter. Mine has the ultra lite barrel. I wish they offered a lighter hand guard. With a Tech Well mag well, C-More rail mount, a laser and 5 tungsten weights, it's close to 7 lbs. I'd love to lose 8-10 ounces of hand guard weight. I also have the factory comp trigger. It breaks at 3 1/2 pounds with a very positive reset. I wish it was closer to 2 1/2.
  2. I bought a GMR-15 Ultralight from SC, and added a slide ride C-More & a Techwell magwell. I'm almost 5K in without any malfunctions (reloads and factory including some old Production and SCSA reloads).
  3. My reloads are MG JHP's at 1.125", and they run great. I also run Speer Lawman 115 grn. TMJ's which are longer than TF recommends, but they run. I did have to bevel the followers on both mags to get them to work initially, but that is the norm with a most Glock base pads.
  4. I'm headed to Home Depot in a few. I'll check the OD of 1/2" CPVC.
  5. I had a piece of 1/2" PVC. It's too big for the JP barrel. Half inch PVC has a nominal OD of 0.840". The ID of the JP barrel is 0.750" +/- 0.005. I'm going to try a piece of 3/8" PVC (when I find one).
  6. I've only got carbon build up, no lead. I've only shot JHP's and TMJ's thru mine. My plan is to continue to shoot JHP's only. I have 2-3K MGB 124 CMJ's that might get shot. The small difference in price between FMJ's and either JHP's or CMJ's aren't worth the mess FMJ's make in a comp. I'm guessing they'd do the same in a shrouded barrel.
  7. I’ve got a question for all the PCC shooters with shrouded barrels (Taccom, JP, Wiland, etc.). Do you worry about cleaning the carbon deposits on the inside of the shroud? I read the post on cleaning the crown of shrouded barrels after shooting coated bullets (PVC pipe with “teeth” cut in the end), but I didn’t find any posts about cleaning the shroud itself. I’ve got a GMR-15, and the last time I cleaned it noticed a some carbon build up in the shroud. The gun has 3000 rounds of reloads (115 MGB JHP w/N320 & Speer Lawman 115 TMJ’s). Is it worth the time to find a shotgun mop the correct diameter to wipe out the shroud? Or do I just not worry about and keep shooting?
  8. I use a 5.11 Shock Rifle Case. It can be used as a back pack or carried conventionally. It rides well in a collapsible wagon or can be carried on my back. https://www.511tactical.com/42-shock-rifle-case.html
  9. My GMR-15 has the Ultra Lite barrel, short stroke bolt & buffer (3 SS & 2 tung), ambi safety with std profile left side/low profile right. It also has their standard 3 1/2 lbs trigger. It has the std mag release. It's the one thing I might upgrade. It shoots 115 MGB JHP reloads and Speer Lawman 115 TMJ's both at 1200 +/- fps into 1" - 1 1/4" groups at 25 yds. It's my first PCC, so I can''t compare the recoil impulse to other blow back guns or the MPX, but the dot doesn't leave the upper A zone at 15 yds. FYI, it is one of the Ready Rifles purchased from Shooters Connection. I was too impatient to wait for one to be built.
  10. I've got one that runs good with MGB 115 JHP's at 1.125" and Speer Lawman 115 TMJ's at 1.155"-1.160" ( know that's longer that TF recommends). I've only ran 100 rounds of Speer, but I've run 400-500 of the MGB's. I did have to radius/bevel the follower so it would load past 30-31 rounds. Several folks have posted that not all Glock 31-33 round mags are the same. I guess I got lucky.
  11. When I bought my GMR-15 from Shooter's Connection, they were out of ETS 40's. When I picked it up, my shop had one mag in stock. I picked it up, and tried to keep an open mind. I know many had posted here that they ran great, but I was afraid I was going to get what I paid for (not much). I was WRONG. So wrong, that I've bought two more. I've shot 2000 thru the JP, and over half have been thru one of the three ETS mags. The only thing that might be better than their mags is the C.A.M. loader. With it, a 40 round mag can be loaded in under a minute. It does require a good bit of force when using old, beat up range brass. With once fired or factory ammo, it still requires some effort and table/barrel to push down on, but is easier. A Glock 31 rounder with a TF +10 takes more force than the ETS 40, but the spring is new. A 31 rounder with a TF Goliath is easier. After loading it a couple times by hand to give the spring a set, I knew I needed a loader. Loading the last 10 was a struggle. FYI, the ammo is mostly MGB 115 JHP's & 115 CMJ's reloads and a couple hundred Speer Lawman 115 TMJ's.
  12. I just picked up a JP too. I'm running factory 17 round mags with Dawson bases, because I have them for my CO gun. I've ran TTI in the past, and I liked them because disassembly was easier than other brands. With a Techwell magwell, I don't have a problem seating the 17's with +5 Dawsons. Downloaded to 15 for classifier/reload practice, they drop without issue. I've got a TF +10 and a TF Goliath on 31 Glock mags. Both run, but needed some follower tuning. I saw a post here on the ETS 40 rounders, and for $28 at my local shop, picked two up. They also run great.

  14. I started with 2 Ruger 22/45 Mk III's. One 5 1/2" with aftermarket sights for RFPI and one 4 1/4" threaded with an Alchin C-More mount & a 12 MOA Slide Ride, RFPO. Both had Volquartsen fire control groups and extractor/firing pins. Both ran good with HV ammo, CCI Mini Mags, and the RFPO run would run CCI SV if it was warm. I recently switched to a Volquartsen Scorpion. I like the 22/45 frame, but I wanted the metal (aluminum) frame the Scorpion offers. I think you get a better, more consistent, trigger with a metal frame over the plastic Ruger frames. Most folks will let you try their pistols after a match, and before I bought the Volks, I tried Rugers and Browning with Tac Sol uppers and well as several 1911/2011 22 LR conversions. I liked the conversions, but went the lazy way with the Scorpion. It runs CCI MM, SV's and Blazers. I didn't want to have to trouble shoot a conversion. I nice young man who shoots RFRO very well (first under 60 second 8 stage match), let me shoot his Scorpion, and I ordered one the following Monday.
  15. Dawson Lo-Pro. No stick issues on 4 different 1911/2011's.
