  1. I don't doubt that it would be effective against the target. I also like the hearing that I still have
  2. Features and technology tested in CO will trickle down to our carry, duty, and home defense pistols, which is a good thing. Open will still be open and isn't going anywhere or going to change unless there's some radical changes to the rules. Flashy, tricked out, loud as hell guns that can hose full speed ahead will always be appealing on some level, just like drag racing automobiles. Totally impractical for anything but games.
  3. On a normal OEM 15 rd tube they should be 140 mm. The grams follower and 11 coil spring should get you an extra round, maybe 2 if you clip it. https://shop.springerprecision.com/CZ75-Follower-Kit-Grams-Engineering-CZ75Grams.htm

    Sig P210 with optic

    Have you had any of those split in other guns or just that p210? Perhaps it is something with that barrel specifically? I have only fired some of their minor power factor competition themed ammo and it seemed very high quality and I had no such issues. Nice p210 btw.
  5. Sig is unfortunately doing Sig things again, releasing a bunch of high priced new and slightly different products. You have no idea what's going be good or not or still supported in a couple years. Romeo 2, R1 pro, multiple new R3's
  6. If you search midway there are apex tactical basepads which say they are for a .40 p226 but also work with 9. With a mecgar body (about 2 mm longer than a normal sig factory mag) and springer flat follower I can get a reliable 23 rds.
  7. How serious do you guys think this "do not overhang the ejection port" mounting is going to be? By some rough guestimation, if I want to mount this on a p226 and keep the irons, the lens will overhang the breech face by 1/10" Should I go for it and hope for the best?
  8. So when are these shipping? I want one bad but want to hear some non shill feedback.
  9. For competition use I'm not sure what can be done. Extra protective hoods are always going to obstruct your view. I like the idea of them being optional or removable as with the 510c and Romeo 1, so people who want the least obstructed sight picture can have it. Durability of the electronics is still in most need of improvement though. While some appear anecdotally more likely to last than others, no red dot seems immune from inexplicably biting the dust even after very low round counts.
  10. now can sig actually follow through and have the dang thing available, with relevant accessories (mounts and plates) by the end of this year?
  11. I believe that's just a romeo 1 with the shroud kit. Not the new R3.
  12. Crisp dot, bright enough to not wash out against fresh painted steel on the sunniest of days? Low profile box but huge window? (ie not a slideride) Batteries last a whole match? Units that dont inexplicably stop working after low round counts? It doesnt even need the fancy auto off and shake awake since we arent asking for a ccw optic, just the most awesome possible competition optic. can you at least hint as to how long we might wait?
  13. No. Nothing about it at shotshow either. At shot they let people see the romeo 2 and mentioned a romeo1 pro. neither appears to meet the criteria of the long rumored max michel edition R3. I’ve been wanting to get a red dot but im hesitant right now since all the current ‘top of the line’ dots are at least a couple years old.
  14. I am interested in these for steel matches but no one seems to have the rail mount adaptor in stock, item SOR1MK013. It is available bundled with the 3moa romeo 1 Any ideas other than buying the 3 moa kit and trying to sell off the optic?
  15. Thank you sir! It seems like kind of a large sight for such a gun (.22) but people run c-mores on these things all the time. I'm thinking the circle-dot reticle will be excellent for short range steel shooting. For all but the smallest plates you just roughly center the plate in the circle and pull the trigger. The really tiny plates (2x4 in) on the other hand, won't be obscured like they would by an 8 or 12 moa cmore.
  16. Does running it without the shell save much weight or just block less of your vision? Thinking about trying one on a volquartsen scorpion for steel matches.
  17. So basically I just won open 10 minor division for the match ?
  18. Sorry I see now it was a dumb question but being a casual and relatively new participant to sanctioned matches this was exactly the reason I was asking this question. No one bats and eye at people using a striker gun with no thumb safety and a 2 lb trigger. Thanks for setting me strait guys
  19. I've been shooting limited with an SAO handgun but have a DA/SA with decocker on the way. If I wanted to shoot the new gun in limited until I assemble a rig/magazines for production can I start hammer up even though it doesn't have a manual safety? Thanks
  20. Cone stage was very fun although I wish I had just rolled the dice on a long distance toss instead of shooting one handed half the stage. I need to quit being so conservative and take some risks! Glad you got to shoot a little before the DQ ?
  21. Hey I was there but I don’t think I was in your squad. Which stage got you? The cone stage or the one with the pair of 20 yard paper shots across the width of the bay?
  22. A big cone. You’re either shooting one handed for over half the shots in the stage or toss it and hope to get lucky (unlikely) or run backwards to get it at the end. The RO and shooter were related and some of us felt like it might have gone differently for one of us to do the same thing.
  23. Thanks Skipping the item may have been wise. I’ll keep an eye on such wording in the future but it may have said last shot fired not target engaged, making it one procedural which they were given. Accuracy and speed were obviously much easier without having to deal with it.
  24. Course description required an object be placed in a box near the ‘end’ of the stage before the final target is engaged. Someone blew through the course ignoring the object.
  25. I have some just like that on mine and I love it!
