    WIL: Positive Press on Junior Shooters

    My friend's son was just featured in Hometownlife.com and will have a print version of the article published in his local newspaper. It's nice to see some positive press on junior shooters!

    Shotshell carriers

    I've been running a pair of Invictus Practical Rack-12Qs this year. So far I'm really happy with them.

    choosing 1-6 scope help

    It looks like this scope is available with a couple different FireDot reticles. I haven't looked through these, but I do have a couple Mark AR scopes with the FireDot and they are definitely daylight-bright.

    Aftermarket Glock Mag Releases

    I like the Vickers Tactical mag release. It's long enough, but not so long that you will accidentally actuate it.

    Which Optic for Rimfire Rifle?

    Not yet. I'm color blind and in not sure if the red dot for us going to work for me. I just got a Holosun 510c Elite with the green reticle for my AR to use in UML Limited so I'm going to see how that works out and go from there. I appreciate all the advice on this thread.

    Glock Factory Trigger going almost full auto

    I haven’t had this problem personally as I don’t do anything to my Glock triggers, but I do know of at least two other people that have had their Glocks eventually go full auto after nothing more than polishing (or so they claim).

    Stoeger Magpul SGA adapter

    I ended up not using the SGA stock because it changed the fit of the gun too much for me. I use the 65mm shim with the factory stock and in that configuration the gun fits me well from a eye-to-bore perspective. When I put the SGA on, it seemed like I would need a 70mm shim, which, of course, doesn't exist. I did love the grip angle and the ability to adjust the length of pull - it just didn't seem to fit me well.

    Hiperfire 24c - do you use the adjustable shoe?

    I'm using it, and like the feel, but am still playing with finding the best position for it. I like it at the bottom for precision shots, but I like it a little higher for hosing (slightly less finger travel and snappier feel). Maybe the answer is to get rid of it and be free to position my finger where needed? For those of you that use it, which notch do you run it on?

    choosing 1-6 scope help

    Can you compare and contrast these two scopes? How do the glass, reticle, and eyeboxes compare? Let's assume the price is equal - is it safe to assume you would go with the PST Gen II?

    Glock shooters, do you leave the trigger stock?

    I'm using a Gen 3, 34 with the factory "-" connector. I'm pretty happy with this setup and am not willing to sacrifice reliability by using lighter striker springs.

    electrolyte supplement

    If you really just want to supplement with electrolytes and not bother with sugary drinks, I'm a fan of Hammer Endurolytes capsules.

    choosing 1-6 scope help

    Is there any reason to get the original Razor HD GEN II over the lighter weight "E" model?

    Stoeger Magpul SGA adapter

    I installed the SGA stock onto my M3K yesterday and thought I’d share some tips on the process. To remove the factory stock screw, I threaded three nuts onto the end of the shaft and tightened them against one another (the shaft is fine threaded for M8 X 1). I applied some heat to the end of the shaft from the inside of the receiver using a soldering iron. Then, applying torque to the innermost of the three nuts, the shaft unscrewed easily. To install the MOA adapter screw, I used a short 5/16 – 18 hex head screw and some washers threaded into the SGA mounting hole to tighten the adapter into the receiver - the 5/16 screw backed out fine without loosening the adapter. Also, I’m using Vibratite VC-3 on the portion of the adapter that threads into the receiver so that if I ever have to remove it, it won’t be glued in with Loctite. When I was test-fitting the stock, I was able to remove the adapter screw by wrapping it with a very wide and thick rubber band (5/8-inch wide) and using a pair of pliers – it came out easily and without any marks. Hope this helps!

    Stoeger Magpul SGA adapter

    I was able to play with an SGA stock and it answered my questions. There appears to be plenty of freedom for the attachment screw to rotate to whatever angle it needs to. How is the comfort of the Magpul recoil pad compared to the factory Stoeger pad?

    Stoeger M3000 Scattergun?

    Just wanted to give an endorsement of Stoeger/Benelli customer service. As mentioned above, I recently purchased an M3K Freedom Series. Right out of the box I was having problems with ejection – with Federal Heavy Field Loads and Winchester Universal it was basically a single shot through 75 rounds. I called Stoeger and their representative was polite and apologetic. He said he wasn’t surprised about the Winchester Universal but said it should run the Federal Field Loads with no problems and said he would like to have the gun back to look at it and provided a pre-paid shipping label. Turn around time was a little over a week and the paper work said they replaced the extractor (which looks like a Benelli extractor to me). I just took it back out last night and it was 100% through 135 rounds (50 of which were Winchester Universal). I’m really happy with the gun now and with Stoeger CS.
