  1. Yup. Pro mag and ASC mags fed round nose flawlessly with the ProMag adapter, but they were tight in the magwell, and wouldn't drop freely, not great for quick mag changes. The metalform mags drop beautifully, they were fantastic for mag changes but had inconsistent feeding issues with that combo, ended up moving to a Hahn block and use it with the metalform mags now, but I have a buddy who still uses the Pro Mag adapter without any issues for him.
  2. The ProMag magwell block arrived yesterday. Happy to report that it installed easily in about 30 seconds, from the bottom, you do not need to remove the bolt latch release. There is a button on the wall of the adapter to press to separate the adapter into 2 pieces. They each slide in from the bottom of the magwell and snap together, no tensioning screws and no tools required. It's an easy in, easy out deal, quick change. I took it to the range today. It ran flawless! No tweeks required. It functioned 100% with 9mm round nose 147 grain with 3.2 grains of titegroup, also ran 100% with trunc
  3. I just spoke with a rep at Pro Mag and confirmed, they discontinued production last year, and brought fabrication in house and re-designed their 9mm magwell block. They just started shipping the new version which is a 2 piece design that installs through the bottom of the magwell and does not require the bolt latch release to be removed when installing. The price is now up from $40 to $59, still much less expensive than other magwell blocks and sounds like the new design is improved. Will see if it functions reliably and will report back.
  4. Here's a link to them on Optics Planet: http://shop.opticsplanet.com/howard-leight-hygiene-kit.html?_iv_code=HL-HP-EDFDDC-1008000&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=plusbox-beta&gclid=COTXnZ6podQCFceFswodyiIDCw Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I've used the Howard alright Impact for a long time, the cushion on the ear cups flattened down and hardened up and a friend mentioned they have a hygiene kit. Found the kit for $10 which replaced the ear cups with a much more comfortable, thicker and softer ear cup. Great little upgrade.
  6. I've got mine installed but haven't had a chance to test it on the range yet. I loaded some dummy rounds in a mag and pulled the charging handle to see if the hollow point loads would feed into the barrel, and jammed the first one, looks like the ramp is too low when installed with the base of the ramp flush to the upper, and the round doesn't touch the ramp it as it feeds from mag to barrel. I think I have to set the ramp deeper so it comes up higher to the barrel but didn't want to do anything further until I contact Taccom for their recommendation.
  7. I am sorry to hear you got caught up in the same mess. You can click on the "activity" tab when you are logged into PayPal and choose a longer time frame than 30 days from the drop down menu to bring up the payment you sent in December. Click on that payment. The good news is you have upto 6 months to file a dispute. Once you click on the payment under the activity tab, it brings up the details of that transaction and you will see blue highlighted text which says "notify seller of problem" click on that and send the message to Ernie through PayPal. If you don't get a reply you can
  8. I will be happy when I hear good news from PayPal, but looks like it will require a bit of time for them to complete their investigation. They are giving him 2 weeks to reply to their message before proceeding to the next step. Not sure how long before I get a refund. I also hope Ernie is ok, but I have to say, when we saw him active on Facebook, posting and liking other posts, but not replying to our email, text, voicemail and Facebook messages, it makes me wonder what is going on. Unfortunately it is still a mystery. He replied to our sponsor shooter friend to thank him for the happy birt
  9. I was getting worried that it was too late. I just started the claim process with PayPal for non delivery 2 days ago, on Friday. It looks like they require time to investigate before it is all resolved, but looks like I got the claim started in time. I waited so long because Ernie was recommended by a sponsored shooter we know well (who felt really bad that this happened and tried to help, but he got no reply either), and I wanted to believe it would work out. Never expected it would come to this. I ordered replacement gear from another vendor this weekend so my son can start the season ne
  10. Thanks very much much posting this. I wasn't sure if I was the only one, and didn't know what to make of it. It's good to hear you were able to secure a refund through your credit card. I sent a PayPal payment, very happy we didn't send it through friends and family, we would be at a total loss. I'm hoping PayPal will make us whole once they complete their process.
