  1. Buy two of them and alternate. That’s what a lot of PRS people do. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I’ve really enjoyed shooting my Tikka T1X. I looked at the RPRR and was disappointed in the cost cutting they did to hit price point. I also find the CZ to be intriguing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Heck, anyone with a Bridgeport manual mill oughta be able to whittle those out for you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yes, you can see it under the battery. They carefully explained how to tell the difference between the new and the old... and then I promptly forgot. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I have the most faith in the new Leupold Delta Point Pro (they updated the printed circuit board that used to cause issues). The Trijicon SRO has a better viewing area. I’ll have a firmer opinion after I abuse it for a while. The Holoson 507c has the option of running a 60 MOA ring. I think this gets me back on target faster. Those three seem have the best reputation on the internet. If I were getting a slide machined for competition, I would probably go with the Trijicon SRO. That footprint will also work for the Trijicon RMR and Holoson 507c. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. For test purposes, I have collected red dot optics from nearly all the major companies. At this point, you couldn’t pay me to use any SIG product. Out of the box, a certain percentage simply don’t point in the right direction. One knowledgeable person that machines a tremendous number of slides will no longer machine slides for SIGs because of the issue. Dealing with SIG customer service has been fruitless to this point. I ended up just going out and buying a second Romeo 1 just to finish my testing since the first shot 6 feet low... after spending several hours on hold with customer serv
  7. There is a tolerance stack relating the amount of rotation and the individual pockets. Been a while since I glanced at it. Basically the pawls give a course amount of adjustment and the the ball detents index it precisely (I use the term loosely). You are probably just shy of enough rotation to get the ball detents to consistently index either on the upstroke or downstroke, or both. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I’ll let you know. Too much water (on aluminum parts) slows the tumbling action. I figure as long as the brass stays in constant submersion I should be fine. I’m sure the ratio will evolve over time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I think my order from BBI is finally at my local post office. I got a tag from my mail carrier that it’s too heavy for her to deliver. It took about 6 weeks; all the fault of the USPS. BBI had it shipped in 2 days from order. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Just ordered some Brass Juice. Tired of the walnut shell dust. I’m going to run brass in one of my industrial parts tumblers, no pins. Looks like about 2k 9mm and a half a gallon of water is about right. Should make my life easier. No more running 300 at a time in walnut, then sifting and getting covered in dust. Additionally, my walnut media gets sand in it from my range pick up. If I don’t change it frequently, it builds up and starts etching my brass. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I enjoyed that show. Talked me into buying another 1911 45 ACP... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I bought an amazing custom hard chrome SP01 AccuShadow 1 with the full Cajun trigger system. Custom milled for the Sig Romeo. Man I wanted to love that gun.... unfortunately, I simply shoot my S2 carry optic gun better. I think once I get motivated, I’ll sell it and just buy another S2 and top it with an SRO. Keep one for backup and dry fire, and compete with the other. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I just had this discussion with a friend. I pushed him towards CFE Pistol. Works in just about any pistol, reasonable price, and readily available. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I get a different point of impact supported than I do standing and shooting at USPSA speed... not a lot, but enough that I zero the same way I compete. Zero at 20 yards. I also like to hang a piece of steel and then walk back in 5 yard increments just to see where it hits. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. For me, muscle memory index on the gun is absolutely critical for carry optics. I don’t like switching between my S2 CO, original Shadow CO, and G17 MOS. I always reserve a couple dry fire sessions before I switch. I would get identical S2s if that’s the platform you prefer.
