  1. Yes, that is the one I have unless they released a new one in the last month. I was mistaken about the LRBHO for the bolt, it says that for the SS SCS. I have the Quentin Defense ARQ 9mm receiver set that I am running it in. I'm not really concerned with LRBHO. I am more concerned that they advertise the SS Bolt and SS SCS buffer as working together and they do not for me. A 31 round Glock mag with a TTI +10 extension will absolutely not feed until 10 rds are gone. I put in the X buffer and it runs like a sewing machine. The biggest heartburn I have over the whole situation is that JP has not responded in a month to the two emails I have sent with questions about this issue. My work schedule and being on AZ time makes it almost impossible to call them.
  2. I run the JP short stroke bolt and LRBHO does not work and JP states this on their website. It will manually lock back though, so no problem there. To answer your other question, I tried pairing it with JP's SCS short stroke buffer and it was a no go. It would not reset my trigger and would not feed. I currently have an X buffer at 7.5oz and a regular carbine spring and it just runs and runs.
  3. No and no. As long as you have two hits in a scoring area, the hits in hard cover no longer matter. They are only counted as misses if you do not make up the shots. Same goes for steel. You can take as many shots as needed to knock them over. The extra shots do not count as misses.
  4. Check out Atlas Gunworks' mag tuning videos, specifically the one tuning the mag body dimension.
  5. Yes, it is image. Those of us that carry 1911/2011s still once in awhile get the random citizen pointing out that the hammer is back on our gun. My usual response is "It wouldn't work if it wasn't."
  6. Why not? SA guns are useless unless cocked. That is the proper way to carry a SA pistol and is no more dangerous than any other. You do realize a Glock is also carried "cocked?" You just can't see because it is an internal striker versus an external hammer.
  7. I actually was able to get to the range and play with that today. The factory setting on the Elf trigger is the adjustment screw sitting flush. I did not weigh it so no idea what the weight is. I turned it one-half turn to higher weight, so now it is just a little below flush. The rifle now functions with the heavier X bolt. Trying the SCS short stroke buffer and it just will not feed with that buffer/bolt combo. It just appears to be stroked way too short with both as the rearward travel is very noticeably short.
  8. It looks like a Hornady HAP projectile.
  9. I will take a look at that this evening, thank you. Now I Just wish JP would return an email, it's been a week. I do not usually have the opportunity or time to call during the week.
  10. I am the most proficient with a 1911/2011 because I get the most trigger time on it, not because of the gun. I carried a Glock for 21 years prior and was very proficient with it. I just prefer the 1911/2011. We pay for anything we want to carry outside of department issue. My department only issues Glocks.
  11. Another update Tested a X bolt that weighed in at 7.5oz and it was a no go, hammer was following in the ELF trigger. This was with the standard carbine spring. It's appearing to me that the JP short stroke bolt really likes a light buffer system.
  12. I made the decision to carry a 2011 for a very simple reason, I compete. I compete with 2011s and 1911s and I shoot those style pistols and triggers the most. I do not shoot a Glock as well as I do the 1911 platform. I did not want to go back and forth between two very different triggers and grip angles when my life or yours might depend on it. Sure an Atlas is expensive but mine has been just as reliable as any of the Glocks I have carried. It's a small price to pay to deploy a weapon system that I am the most proficient with.
  13. I’m using the Springfield holster with a TLR-1HL light on the gun. Only modification I had to make was to relieve an area for the mag release.
  14. It’s the aluminum grip with the rubberized grip tape. I’m very happy with it.
