  1. I started with 147s, they shot fine and initially preferred the recoil characteristics. After some time in uspsa, however, I started to prefer a snappier, quicker recoil so I ultimately switched to 124s. Round noses also seem to generally feed much better in 10 round 1911 magazines and had a noticeable reduction in malfunctions. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. Browning. It's supposed to be their deer head/buck logo. I've reloaded small handfuls and never had any sort of problem.
  3. Fathers day sale this weekend, free second barrel and free upgrade to the stainless grip according to PTs social media.
  4. It'll be worth it though, PT is great and they really care about their products and customers. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  5. Waiting is the worst, I've only been waiting a little over a month for mine and it feels like an eternity lol Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  6. The race shop and the 3-gun are the same gun (as far as I know), it's just that the 3-gun is prepackaged with all the barrels, tac-rail, optic, etc. You could build the same gun via the race shop and leave off some things in the 3-gun package that maybe you didn't want to potentially save a little money. I think it just matters whether the package offers value to you. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. First, I think it's price point plain and simple. Edges were the quintessential limited gun and everyone just delt with all the quirks because it was the only big name 2011 at that magical 2k price point. Honestly, the Stacatto XL looks really nice, but not $3500 nice. For that money you can easily buy a semi-custom with a steel grip from a smaller shop with much lower production numbers. It's like buying a $3500 Ruger as an over exaggeration. Secondly, I think a lot of competition shooters have been majorly soured with the garbage quality control on their pistols in the last few years. Cracked slides, crappy finishing work, guns being shipped with the sights backwards, etc. All of this seems like it has been fixed already with the new line, but until some of that rep is earned back, it's just another turd with some new polish.

  8. Some 9mm experiences here: https://forums.brianenos.com/topic/258806-winchester-244/ Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  9. Great post, thanks so much for this. Definatley an option. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. I just ordered my first 2011 in 40, however, I live in one of those sad states where I have to shoot L10. I'm just trying to figure out what all of my mag options actually are before I go forward. MBX makes an 140mm L10 mag with basepad out the door which is what I'm probably going to do. Does STI make a 10 round gen2 mag? If they are 126s, I suppose I could do a +0 basepad, but by then they would be the same price as the MBX mag. Just trying to explore all my options first. Thanks guys. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

  12. I run the .356 Blue 125gr RN with W231 (Same as HP38) With 4.2gr they make about 135PF @ 1.145 OAL out of my 5 inch 1911. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. Do you have a dehumidifer/desiccant inside your safe? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. I don't think the reliability of 9mm 1911's has much to do with the gun itself, but rather the combination of the magazines and your bullet choice. You just need to figure out what works best. I had some nose dive issues with my Tripp mags and the flat point 147s I was using, switched to round nose 125s and never had any problem after that. I cant remember the last time my gun malfunctioned without it being my fault. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  15. Yes, I have two of them, but I haven't really found anything better aside from getting a different bag. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
