  1. Thanks everyone for the feedback. Sounds to me like they’re worth it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thinking about getting some and looking for feedback. Any issues locking in place? Do they have a real mag feel? Aside from being polymer I’m wondering how they feel when seating, ejecting etc. Did you have to dremel them basepad to fit your magwell? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. No. Went over to my buddy’s house that fit my top end. Confirmed the problem. Reamed it and is now good to go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’m not sure. Never pulled the bullets to get an accurate measurement. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. It’s fixed! Thanks all for your help. Powder Finger helped me walk through to narrow it down. Had a slightly short chamber that only showed up with a few rounds that had longer brass. Just got back from my buddy’s house and after 6 turns from reamer all the “bad” rounds feed fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yes. Reamed to accept up to 1.20. Ammo is 1.181-1.188 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I have not. The issue has something to do with the ammo as it only happens 1-2/100 rounds with ammo that is in spec for a hundo case gauge and barrel plunk test. The barrel from my old slide fits the new slide and feeds all the problem ammo without issue. The problem barrel is just failing to close the final 1/8” on these rounds and it’s a hard stop.

  8. No luck after knocking that down and cleaning up other rough edges. I put my old barrel that was fit to my old slide in. It seems to fit fine and all the bad rounds feed without a problem. If it checks all the boxes for barrel fit I might try it out at the range. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I'm aware. Only did this once as a test. The extractor was loose before doing this. I adjusted and it was still good after I dropped the slide on the round.
  10. Thanks! I'll touch up that area and report back. Do you think I should also touch up that part of the slide that it's hitting?
  11. Recently had my top end rebuilt by a friend/part time gunsmith. 40 cal 2011. I have about 1500 rounds through it and getting 1-2/100 rounds that it will not lock up on (not even able to force slide closed). We’ve been trying to figure out why but are both at a loss. Problem has always been there but the first couple practices I chalked it up to “break in” What I checked... Cleaned and removed every bit of carbon. Ammo that fails case gauges and even drops right into the barrel. Even tried dropping into the barrel then closing the slide on it. I even measured everything on the ammo that’s failing and everything is in spec (except for length but barrel is reamed to accept it. And it drops right in) Recoil spring- had a 12. Tried a new 14#. No luck Magazines- good and have new springs. Extractor- tension was loose. Adjusted and problem persists. Put in an aftec from another gun. Still no luck. Since the season is just starting here in PA, I’d really like to try to fix this myself instead of sending it back to him. The only thing I can think of is that the dings (circled in pictures) have something to do with it. Can I knock these down? Other thoughts? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. For trimming, get the Giraud Tri-Way Trimmer. It’s only a few dollars more than the WFT but leaves a much cleaner cut. I’ve used both extensively and own the giraud Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. It’s not too far but I’m not shooting it. Mostly uspsa for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thank you sir! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Ah! And, no way! The manual is long gone and posting questions on enos is quicker and easier than reading Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Didn’t think of that. It’s plenty loud so I could try turning the sensitivity way down. Currently set at whatever the default is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. I was out playing with my gamer rifle the other day and was routinely hitting .11 splits and there were a few times where I hit, what felt and sounded like, much faster (maybe 8s or 9s). However every time it happened that shot was not recorded on the timer. Anyone’s now if there’s a limit to the pp2? Is there a way to adjust? I always thought sensitivity is to adjust for quieter guns. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. A complete upper from a reputable manufacturer like BCM should not need to be tuned for reliability. If you’re putting together the upper yourself a 11.5 barrel with carbine length gas has a very good reputation for reliability. You can add an adjustable gas block if you plan to shoot suppressed. A 10.5 will normally run just fine too but that 1” equates to a much shorter dwell time which can result in reliability issues. A heavier (h2,h3) buffer and blue sprinco spring can help with reliability by slowing the carrier speed. If building the lower now, go with the a vltor a5 buffer system. I have a 13” mid-gas (cut down from 16”) with a 0.076 gas port. The first time I shot it, I had several failures to eject. I believe it was unlocking early and the carrier speed felt very fast. This was with a regular carbine spring and h1 buffer. I swapped to h2 buffer and blue sprinco spring and it has been good to go. However, I decided to order a vltor a5 tube and their a5h3 buffer for the lower because I feel the 13” mid gas is right on the edge of reliability and the a5 should help increase dwell time and smooth out the carrier (plus, waiting on suppressor and will eventually get a 10.5-11.5 upper) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. For the limcat, the steel insert is bolted in place underneath. You’ll probably need to heat it up to break them loose. I wouldn’t bother refinishing the insert though. Paint or cerakote won’t hold up long. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Mine was originally cerakote silver but once it started to get beat up I sanded it off and polished the brass. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. I guess it’s a good time to compare rear sights too. Never put too much thought into before and just ran with what it came with. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Thanks. I’m not at all unhappy with the Dawson I use now. Just building a new top end and thought I’d explore something different. Will likely just stick with what I know. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Does it basically just make the fiber appear smaller? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Anyone have experience with both? If so does the manny dot provide any advantage or disadvantage while shooting fast? Seems like it would be more precise but wondering if it feels slower. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Carry a zip tie or similar in your pocket. If you stop someone for a suspected squib you can confirm by passing the zip tie through the barrel before they go to the safe table to check. Much quicker and easier than trying to look down the barrel. Also (especially at locals) make sure the RO on the scoring tablet knows that they should be on the opposite side of the shooter as you and do not need to be certified to make a call for a safety violation that you are not able to see.
