    Benelli Nova magazine extension issues

    I know this is an old topic, but I had a similar double feed issue with a Benelli Supernova. I didn’t see anything else related to this topic so I posted this here. My supernova would occasionally let two shells onto the lifter and lock it up. It started happening after 1000rd through the gun. To fix it I added a small bend to the left shell catch. This is the catch that activates first and stops the 2nd shell in the mag tube from coming out. The right shell catch releases the 1st round in the tube and the left shell catch needs to stop the next round. I add the bend to the piece that rides on the action bar. So when the action bar activates the left shell catch it moves into the tube a bit farther.

    Accurate, soft shooting .45 load?

    Have you chrono’d those loads? Curious where that sits for PF? I’m almost out of Tite Group. Might try something else. Hopefully, this stuff is cleaner.

    USPSA Holster for Dawson CRP STI Trojan 45 ACP

    I use a Red Hill Tactical 1911 holster for my STI Trojan. The hanger they sell is too low for SS. I mounted mine on a teclok to keep it legal. Great company. Fast shipping.
  4. I know IMR Target hasn't been out very long, but has anyone had some "long term" results? You know like a summers worth of shooting? I'm very interested. Hopefully it's way cleaner than TG.
  5. I load 9 major and minor on a 550. All I do is change the seating depth and swap powder bars. I have a charge bar set for HS6 and one for Tite Group. I'm using the dillon factory seating die so adjusting that takes a bit longer than a fancy micrometer seating did
  6. I have a RO in 45 and Sig Max in 40. The RO is a fine 1911 for the money. Mine had a decent trigger from the factory and was very reliable. I prefer the Max over the RO. For the money that thing is ready to rock. I put a Enos trigger bow with a long insert. Other than that it's bone stock.

    I've become kind of fond of AR-comp. I've used it in my hoser ammo the last couple years. I've been using 24gr if it under a 55gr Hornaday fmjbt. It will hold 1 MOA with my Nordic barrel. I'm going to try 23gr of it this year. I don't think my hoser ammo needs to be that hot. I've also been experimenting with 60gr Nosler BT for 300-600yds. I played with Varget and AR-comp because I had both. I can't tell a major different between the two powders. If I can keep sub-MOA with a bulk powder I already use for my hoser ammo, it makes it an easy decision.

    How many magazines

    How many rounds are most guys fitting in their 155s? Ive shot many matches with two 140s and one 170s. I also only used two mag pouches. This works great until a 32 round, empty gun start and a mag change is fumbled...

    Best comp for Glock 19

    I had an open Glock based on a G17. I used a Carver 4-port comp. It worked well for major loads. I would think a G19 shooting major PF would be very harsh/snappy? Maybe not. It would look bad ass. I still have that 4 port comp threaded for a KKM barrel if you need one. PM me for details.

    Sig Romeo 3 review / comparison

    Very interested in replacing a 90 degree Cmore with a micro dot. Sounds like this Sig Romeo 3 is a great option. They are holding up to major PF? Currently who makes mounts for them?

      Sorry. Not looking for any trades.

  12. Anyone using theses case gauges for 9mm major rounds? Montana gold JHP seated at 1.165".
  13. I save my fired 9mm major brass and load it with powderpuff 9mm minor loads for 3 gun.
  14. I fought this same thing with a Springfield RO in 45. What fixed it for me was polishing the heck out of the bottom of the slide that contacts the next round. I think they call it the disconnector channel area. The factory had some small machining marks there. It must have been enough friction to pull the next round out of the mag enough to prevent it from dropping free.
  15. Hello, I have a Royal Arms TacAR buttstock on a rifle buffer tube. I love the stock but I'm looking for the best way to attach a sling QD to it. It came with a QD attachment point on the clamp that prevents the buffer tube from rotating. I wish the attachment point was closer to the buttstock. Anyone else using this stock? Let me know your sling attachment points. Pictures would be great. Thanks!
