  1. I really like my Trijicon Accupower 1-8x FFP, and to be honest, my Primary Arms 1-6x SFP was pretty great, and I heard their 1-8x wasn’t too shabby for a low cost option. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. It happens eventually with all mag catches. Metal mags + metal mag catch = erosion of engagement surface. Since modifying the mag catch hole in the mag, is likely to irreparable damage the mag. A stronger spring may help, but eventually you'll need a new mag catch. It's a cheaper option than two new mags...
  3. Are they ok now? It was mainly the follower than caused me to curse. Once that changed, they were good, and I figured I might as well change the rest. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Oddly enough, the SPS 140mm mags, w/ Grams followers/springs, and Dawson bases, have run 100% for me. YMMV, but I’ll get more based on my track record with them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have a partial square of clear grip tape on the right side of my 2011, just in front of the pin (see pic). As others have mentioned, it's a nice reference during movement and reloads. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I have the Tanfo Ambi in black off my Stock 2. I'd happily trade for the single sided Gold Team. I can trade you a pic if you want. Text may be easier if you want. my # 302-593-5724

      Wasnt planning on refinishing. My gold team has some wear, not scratches or dings just some blueing coming off from use.

      How do you want to do this...I can ship mine as early as Monday - are you able to do the same?

      Thanks!

  7. If it hadn't worked so well for me, and my very specific set of variables, I would have chosen to lose the Powder-Check and keep the Dillon Seat Die and the Lee Factory Crimp Die. But... It works for me. And as a favorite NCO of mine once told me, "If it's stupid and it works, it ain't stupid." I like the GSI, but I wasn't able to (in first person) see any working during my decision process. Several of my friends have the MBF, so it was an easy choice.
  8. I don't know. It was not expensive, and I'm happy with its performance.
  9. Well, the DAA Seat & Crimp die is a resounding success for me. I haven't had anything fail the case gauge or the gun since I set it up. I get to keep my powder check die, and my Mr BulletFeeder is dropping with precision (once I adjusted everything correctly for my bullets). I'm making about 100-rds every 5-min, and that's including adding primers/brass/bullets when they run low.
  10. Since I make just one flavor of 9mm for my competition guns, if I can duplicate that with the combo die, I'll be happy, and keep the powder check. If not, then I'll ditch the powder check and use my Dillon seat and Lee factory crimp.
  11. After adding my Mr BulletFeeder, and losing my powdercheck station, th combo die surfaced on DaA's website. This allows you to combine stations so that you can leave a station for powdercheck or such. I imagine that Lee is making it for them, but I don't know for sure. Despite the anecdotal successes and failures of a combo seat/crip die, I am compelled to try it at the price point of $29. That powder check has kept me squib free, much better than my mk1-eyeball. Thoughts, concerns, actual experience, precognitive dreams featuring the die and a random anime character?
  12. S&A may tip the scales to Open for you. My wife's STI Trojan was 0.2oz over due to S&A. With Ice magwell, it was legal.
  13. As the B-Class friend of several GM/M shooters, I'd say that I shoot better with them than without. Their understanding of the process and personal rituals lends itself towards a great match.
  14. Is there a serial number difference?
  15. I have been told by a friend whom I consider reliable, that the new model Stock 2 has less metal thickness in the grip/magwell area and more in the dust-cover area. This accounts for the holster fit and the grip panel fit issues. Holding both side by side, you can feel the slightly nose heavy nature of the new model. As far as the velocity difference, I don't know.
  16. The SSI are very grippy under pressure, but easy to adjust hands when you let off pressure a little. The only downside is that they are kinda thick. If they did a slimline version they would have my business.
  17. I encourage you to email VZ about making Stock 2 grips (I have). They haven't so far, and seem to not value the small market that is the Tanfoglio crowd.
  18. I use a ALS for 3Gun (Sig P320), and it is awesome. I never feel like the gun is going to ruin my day by jumping out.
