  1. FWIW, I was able to shoot a few hundred out of a 92x. A couple quick points: -Fair accurate to include molys - here is some load data for context: -147 Ibeji FP, 1.10 OAL, N310 2.8 gr - 873 fps -138 Ibeji RN, 1.10 OAL, N320, 2.9 gr - 942 fps -Fit and finish are oustanding - barrel didnt have any issues with bullet contacting the rifling - very forgiving -Very soft shooting, try an 11lbs recoil spring to start -Out of the box the reset doesnt need any tweaking - just adjust the hammer spring to get the double action pull manageable -I couldnt ge
  2. Yes, I run a rubber buffer and it helps - I've run DPP, Sig R1 and R1PRO, RTS2, all on EAA variants with CO - after all those, I strongly recommend the SRO for any CO gun. J&L Gunsmithing (Jim Jones) is your best bet. He has done all my milling and can do a great job with SROs.
  3. Hey partner, for my 147 loads at 132 PF I use an 8lbs but you can go up to a 9lbs or a 10lbs - totally preference. I find that with a red dot, the heavier spring gives a faster overall dot reset time, but the dot moves more in your view and the dot movement itself is a little more unpredictable. With an 8lbs, the movement is very linear and predictable although it is a little slower overall. Splitting hairs but up to you - I wouldn't go below 8.
  4. Thanks for the input - do any of you guys mind sharing some load data to get started? I'm looking at using some Stock 2 load data but the Beretta's barrel is an unknown. Any throating issues? Thanks,
  5. Strongly looking at this as a production gun - a couple questions and I apologize if they've been answered else where: -Any throat issues with 147 RN Blues and other similar molys? -Any 147 plated or 165 plated load data with N320 or Titegroup? A local buddy who runs on had a series of issues with failures to eject - casings getting stuck and causing malfunctions - anyone have issues with that? Thanks, Tom
  6. Yes, 0 issues for me - the trigger weight is OK but the break is a little long for my taste. That being said, I may not end up polishing or filing anything.
  7. Thats true but I'll say this is as accurate or more than the S2 and S3 I've owned. The rifling is a little more forgiving for length but if you run moly or Blue Bullets, you'll want it reamed.
  8. I do, the extra barrel length and design gives it a better feel and balance.
  9. J&L Gunsmithing is the go to for all things Tanfo and cuts - guy is Jim Jones, awesome guy - hes on Facebook.
  10. Hey friends - I recently got an IFG Stock Master from BSPS and had it milled by J&L Gunsmithing (Jim Jones). Jim is phenominal - best gunsmith I have ever worked with. He did the cuts and put the 2 support pegs that fit in the base of the RTS2. -I bought it off BSPS and called to make sure they had it in stock - no issues getting it and I think Patriot Defense also has them in stock. -I got the small frame which takes CZ75 mags - I put old CZ75 grips on which don't fit perfectly and require minor modification. Overall worth it to reuse my grit carbide grips.
  11. As I recall, the long slide springs are almost the same length but are generally a little longer out of the bag than a normal length. I wouldnt worry about length at all - they will all change over time and if you are really in to consistency, you should change your recoil spring every 6 months.
  12. Hey partner - I didn't experience that at all - I've run mostly Fed100 SPP but also Win SPP. I also tested some factory which is a mixed bag for primers. The spring pressure seems similar to the lightened hammer spring from MCARBO - but based on the fact that the TG9 has the same design and the OEM trigger assembly, you could put the OEM spring in and use it. I think if someone really wanted to take the TG9 to the full limit, they would do a little sear/hammer work to make the break a little cleaner. That plus a little HEAVIER of a hammer spring would tighten everything up. I
  13. Hey partner, I think it depends if you want to run the Ruger as a primary PCC or backup. For a backup ,it is an amazing value. Literally throw an optic on and it will take any Glock mag out there and run 100%. I torture tested the ETS 40round plastic junkers and it worked very well. If you're going to run the Ruger for primary PCC, put the TG9 in there and call it day.
  14. FWIW - Tandemkross was a waste of money - trigger angle was off and felt all wrong - it didn't really change the weight at all, and was very loose in the actual assembly. Save your money - got for TG9.
  15. Volquartsen TG9 Trigger Review here:
  16. This is a follow up of my last post which was a review of the Ruger PC Carbine. I recently got the Volquartsen TG9 which turns the gun in a somewhat usable back PCC to a legit contender for a primary PCC. I recently ran it at Area 8 and got 2nd in PCC - which was entirely based on my slow, haphazard, and incoherent shooting. -I bought it off Brownell's for $247 and paid $5 for shipping - drama free delivery and it was in stock back in mid-July. -Installation is super easy - literally take it in the box with you to the range because it'll fall right in.
  17. Hey all - a few thousand rounds later I am very very happy with the Volquartsen - I'm going to post a separate review and link the thread here.
  18. Hey Jordan, the physical trigger itself could be changed out because of its geometry - but the guts seem overpriced. Standard trigger job means smoothing and polishing the sear/hammer contact. This is NOT something I recommend to try if you don't have experience gunsmithing because it can create a dangerous situation. To learn more about this concept, you can Youtube 1911 trigger jobs - there are tons of videos explaining this.
  19. Hey folks - its 100% reliable with every ammo I could throw at it, to include slow 165 grain 9mm molys. For the spacer, find anything that will fit in the hole which is very small - you'll see that its a very simple mechanical issue - there is a channel that the trigger return spring and insert go in - just take a little space out and youll be fine.
  20. Folks - just got one of the new Ruger PC carbines for PCC - a few initial impressions: -Super front end heavy - will probably be much better after replacing the CF handguard -Trigger is a gritty 4.5 stock - installed the MCARBO trigger kit which took it down to a still gritty 3lbs - very not impressed with their product. Standard trigger job tuning brought it down to a crisp 2.5 -Trigger has significant overtravel - you can take that out with a hodgepodge spacer pretty easily -Also installed MCARBO recoil buffer and spring - also very unimpresssive - I'm shooting 130 PF 14
  21. I have a fully set up X5, tungsten grip with custom carbide grit job, original X5 upper, grey guts, tungsten guide rod, plates to put on rts2 or romeo3max.  Let me know if you're ineterested

  22. Hey partner, I have 2 X5s, both are non legion but I also got a legion grip.  if you let me know what youre running it in I can give you an offer. CO? Prod?

    1. Shmella


      I had it setup for CO. I havent shot much production with it to be honest.

    Legion accuracy

    I bought a Legion new and long story short, it had accuracy issues. Wouldnt get anywhere near a good group with 147s of different types and powders. Best group I had was 2" with factory 124. I called Sig and told them that Ive owned a 320 and a 320 x5 and both were pretty accurate. The clown I got said I could send it in but the standard they use is 2" at 10 yards. I laughed and explained that theyre advertising this as an ultimate competition gun and backing it up with shotgun birdshot accuracy. If you send it in and it passes this high standard you have to pay for shipping and ammo.
  24. Another set of data points: I have a S2 and S3 and I like 147 Blues and Plated, 158 plated (technically 38s) and 165 Xtremes. For the heaviest bullets with fast powder, 6lbs and 7lbs actually work very well. I had them milled for CO and the dot is actually very controlled with pretty much no dot dip at the end of the slide locking in to battery. For 124s or lighter, definitely start at 8 and go up. To double check myself, I'll use ultra slow motion mode on my phone and record the gun to see if its 'matches' what 'it feels like.' Worth trying too.
