  1. 9mm tap. Remove all cutting threads except the one’s that grab the case, just to make sure you don’t accidentally scratch anything. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I think it’s ridiculously expensive for some angle iron with magnets attached. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Sorry, I meant 10. They 8’s are .45. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I absolutely LOVE the new 9mm 1911 8-round mags from Metalform! They have a coating that helps them drop free and they run great both my Colt 70 Series pistols. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I’ve been using Sport Pistol for about a year now and I love it. It’s exactly what everyone says about cleaner burning and it’s more accurate than Titegroup in my guns. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yes, light loads are a competitive advantage for Steel Change and yes it’s common. It’s also not a good idea to mix up your ammo boxes and accidentally take your steel loads to a USPSA match since they won’t make power factor, they’ll cycle slower so double taps on paper are farther apart, and they won’t knock over any poppers.

  7. Elftmann sent a new trigger to my buddy when he had the same problem but it didn’t fix it either. He sold it off and uses a Timney Calvin Elite now. Unfortunately that trigger has broken twice so I suggested he go with the Hiperfire 24c like I’ve been running without issue for two years. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. ^^^this right here. If you’re on a budget, buy and enjoy then upgrade as you can afford it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Bul Armory?

    You forgot to mention he’s a five time world champ, so he knows a thing or two! Lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I honesty don’t care about who “copies” what, I care more about what works and what fits my budget. Your TACCOM products have for the most part helped me do what I do better, and that’s the most important thing to me. You keep doing what you’re doing, and I’ll keep supporting your brand. It’s just that simple. Thanks for your focus on continued innovation Tim, I appreciate the work you put in to help progress our sport/hobby/addiction! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. True. I’m actually quite curious to see what changes/improvements the team at JP is making for their version. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I’ll leave this with the OP as well. The fact that JP is copying the ULW speaks volumes as well. The reason so many top shooters use the longer barrels is pretty simple, JP is the premier brand of complete rifle and has many sponsored shooters that in turn inspire others to buy JP, but JP currently doesn’t have a lightweight short-barreled upper. Once they finish their “copy “ of the ULW, I guarantee you’ll see many factory guys running it and a lot more fanboys jumping on the bandwagon. Brands like Lead Star actually have the upper hand on both since their skeleton rifle is amazingly light you can run a penciled out 14.5” barrel and brake for better long range performance, plus you can transition about as fast as a ULW since the swing weight is so low.

  13. When did the argument have anything to do with velocity? No one is cheating physics here, you are attempting to change the argument to something completely unrelated to the current debate. Nowhere in this conversation did I say we are running the same ammo through both uppers, and I very clearly stated that I have tuned my buffers and my ammo to each upper so velocity is irrelevant. The simple fact is that I see zero benefit to the longer barrel upper for USPSA and Steel Challenge matches since there are no shots past 50 yards, and the lighter barrel helps with faster transitions. My ULW with the buffer and ammo I’ve tuned for it will match the longer barrel shot for shot with negligible for movement and be faster on target until the distance reaches over about 80 yards where the length starts to aid accuracy. If we are shooting past 100 yards with a PCC we grabbed the wrong gun to begin with, so talking about longer shots is like talking about boxing with one arm—sure you could get lucky but the probability of winning isn’t on your side.

  14. The longer barrel doesn’t “let you get away” with anything, but rather it covers the symptoms of having the wrong load and buffer with the short barreled upper. I spent the time and effort to work up my load and buffer just like I did for the longer barrel, and I’ll take the ULW over it any day, and twice on Sunday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I have both the ULW and standard length barrel uppers and the difference is negligible if you use the right ammo and buffer for your upper. My ULW double taps touch at 7 yards, and are easily both A zone at 15 yards. Beyond 20 yards I shoot a little slower anyway so it doesn’t much matter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
