  1. We shot this today. I blew it but the top shooter shot it 100% in 6.01. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Hello Derek, my name is Mike and found you via a search for answers to an AR 9 build I just completed. I have a problem ejecting a live round from the barrel, either is stuck or it pulls the bullet out of the case. I assume I need to cut the throat deeper. I read you have access to carbide reamers for this task. My barrel is nitride coated.

     

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,

  4. I have three Taccom ULW barrels I use for competition and can’t say enough good things about them. I don’t see a need for anything else—at least not for USPSA and Steel Challenge. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yes, any standard handguard will work. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I would love a 10. When are they coming out? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. ^This right here. I love the RMR 124 JHP for 9major and PCC. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. The two best PCC bolts on the market are JP and Taccom. Both of them have numerous competitors running tens of thousands of rounds through them and they just plain work. Everything else is a crapshoot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I run VZ Operator II grips on most of my 1911s, but I also like the Recons quite a bit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I can ream your barrel if interested. When done you can load out to 1.160+ depending on the projectile. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I would think everyone should be concerned with a trigger that breaks off, but if that doesn’t bother you then no worries. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Two of the three failures I watched in my buddy’s gun were catastrophic where the trigger bar broke off, effectively ending his stage. The third failure was from the trigger bar extension stripping and allowing the trigger foot to swing out laterally, extending outside the trigger guard. That is an automatic DQ in USPSA since the trigger is no longer covered by the guard. Those are not the kind of failures that you can limp through a stage with unless you can hide the third one from the RO when unloading and showing clear. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. The problem with that logic is it’s likely already cost you the match by the time you can switch to a backup gun. If I could find a reliable sub 2lb trigger with a shorter reset than my Hiperfire 24C I’d buy it, but the Calvin Elite isn’t it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. You are correct. All were broken in a PCC that ran previously perfect with a JP trigger. He put in the CE and loved it initially, then broken the first one in a match in 2017. My post about it is in this thread about halfway up. He has broken two more since then and finally gave up on the CE over reliability. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Different league as in not reliable? After three broken Calvin Elite triggers my buddy finally went to a Hiperfire 24C—well the new version of it anyway. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
