  1. Completely relax your arms and hands at your sides. Now slowly raise your dominate arm so it's pointing straight ahead. Chances are pretty close to 100% that your hand is not vertical. In theory, keeping that natural alignment/slight cant when shooting one handed will allow for better recoil control. In practice, the gun still moves, just in a different direction. Would likely take a LOT of rounds down range to re-train and realize any gains from the change.
  2. If you want to use a QD mount for your Sandman, you'll either need to send the barrel to be properly threaded (Class3Machining was about $70 total last time I sent one) or take your chances with a jam nut and just hope the device/suppressor ends up concentric to the bore.
  3. Phantom triggers are supposed to be available this month, so there will be real world reviews by the time you're ready to buy. That being said, if I had to pick today, I'd vote Phantom. It's supposed to be designed to run in the MPX
  4. MPX mags are ~$15 more than factory G17 33 rounders. Yeah, it stings up front, but it's basically a one time expense.
  5. MPX recoil impulse with any ammo will be more "forgiving" than any blowback gun with that same ammo. Does that matter when doing static drills with a perfectly tuned blowback gun? Probably not, especially if you've got thousands of rounds behind the trigger with that blowback gun. Does that matter when you're on the clock, running through a stage changing levels/distances/target types (mixed steel and paper)? Absolutely. Does that make the MPX absolutely superior to a blowback AR9? Nope.
  6. L&M Precision can convert the X5 to RMR foot print for $45. Not sure if that applies to the newer ones, but worth checking out.
  7. I ran a Kaw Valley gen 2 BCG in my Colt pattern AR-9. Only issue I ever experienced was a broken firing pin which was caused by the Hiperfire trigger I was using at the time. Should also note that I never experienced a failure related to the bolt. Discovered the broken firing pin during routine cleaning. It had been ~500 rounds since the last cleaning, so no idea how many it fired wihle broken.
  8. Give the Timney a chance. Mine broke at 4.5 lbs out of the box, but after several hundred rounds it's closer to 4 on the guage and feels lighter than that.
  9. I've used CLP on everything that required oil for the last ~15 years, I have not found a reason to try anything else. I've got an M16 that has been through a LOT of 1,000+ round range days with most of it being suppressed. If CLP was going to fail, I'd have seen it. I will say that after a long day of suppressed full auto, when I'm caked in blowback I do wish it had that minty fresh frog lube smell
  10. I run the Comp-Tac pouches. No issues with retention/removal with 41 rounds of Sig/TTI goodness. Used the Colt mag version of the Comp-Tac pouch last season with 1 on the hip and 1 horizontal in front and never had a problem.
  11. Most of the problems I've seen with PSA PCCs have been related to the ejector angle and have been easily corrected.
  12. "Because I can". If you feel like you have to justify your purchase/ownership of any firearm to anyone (other than a spouse who may be impacted financially), you're doing it wrong.
  13. I built a ~5.5 lb blowback AR, ran it for a season, and loved it. Decided to switch to the MPX platform for less dot movement, it's about 1 lb heavier, but totally worth it.
  14. See if you can find someone local with a sight pusher. Removing sights isn't rocket science, but I've seen to many "slips" that resulted in nasty marring.
  15. I'm a big fan of the CompTac PLM pouches.. They're well built and did a great job holding fully loaded Colt pattern mags horizontal on the belt while my uncoordinated ass plodded along.
