  1. Empty primer trays fit perfectly inside of a trash bag. That’s where I store mine Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I used to shoot a 226 enhanced elite before legions were a thing. I installed the Grayguns intermediate mag release , or you can find X5 mag release. I searched for an All Around for a while and never saw one. They used to be around for like 1500 before they stopped producing them, when I first got into Sig’s. I used a 19# hammer spring in my 226, fiber optic front sight, E2 grips (since the frame is wide and bulky), Mecgar mags (I think I used the 18 rounders). I got all of the same brand and capacity mags because I discovered that the henning basepads for CZ’s (I believe it was) worked with them. Unfortunately those basepads didn’t seem to work with other brand or capacity mags. It’s been several years since I’ve shot or owned that 226, but that’s most of what I remember about it. I used the factory hammer, trigger bar, etc. Gun was reliable and pretty good, but I moved on to 320’s when they first got released. Now I no longer shoot sigs, prefer CZ’s and Tanfos
  3. I’ve put the fail safe powder rod backwards on my 650 before. It cycled but was difficult. I discovered it within 20 or 30 rounds though so that may well not be the issue here. Pull it all apart and make sure it’s cleaned, lubed, then try it again with tightening shell plate properly. That would be my first suggestion Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Works great on my 650 with 9mm 125 gr Coated round nose bullets Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I had Stock 2’s first and switched to a shadow 2. I do like the balance of the Stock 2 and shorter slide, but I like grip, feel, mag release, trigger, and hammer spring access all better on the CZ. I sent you a PM also Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’m curious about this, as I’ve had this problem intermittently as well. I planned on replacing parts until it was fixed, but maybe someone can answer this and save some trouble finding the problem part. I figured the arm that rotates the disk, is the most likely culprit; but I don’t know for sure Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I bought a used set of Mitutoya calipers for reloading previously. I read about how great they are on the internet, etc, etc. they are unnecessary for reloading as mentioned above. You can get any decent set of calipers and you’ll be fine. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    CZ 75 mag question

    I don’t know about the phantom, but I have had some issues with other guns. I used blue magic (polishing compound) and lightly polished the outside (and inside) of my mags. With my Tanfo, this helped mags drop free better and on the inside the follower stopped binding up. It made my mags look a bit used immediately, but it got rid of the roughness to them and slicked them up. But more importantly they functioned as they should have. May be worth a try on one of your mags to see if it helps Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I use one of the hard plastic Arredondo keepers where the outer belt laps itself, then I use a Velcro belt keeper to the right of that at my holster. The Velcro’s been a bit worn out, but it stays together well enough Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I previously had pain in my right wrist before shooting. That had bothered me since I started dryfiring, but then the elbow pain came after a while of consistent dryfire and using Grippers. The Ironmind “Expand Your Hands Bands” resolved my issues pretty quickly. I guess it works out the muscle group that does the opposite of gripping, but I don’t know much about it. I recommend getting the whole set of bands as they’re inexpensive. You’ll likely start to feel relief in a few days if your issue was like mine Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. He said in his post he talked to Mark 7 and they weren’t sure Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I had this problem in the past, and everyone told me i needed the alignment tool. When I called Dillon he told me that wasn’t likely the problem. I took everything apart including primer station and cleaned it all with isopropyl alcohol and put it back together. Worked great after that. Grime was getting caught under my primer disk if I recall correctly Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I still use my vibratory tumbler and wet tumble, because of same issues as OP mentioned. Dust but also my cases had a film on them, which I didn’t really care for. If you don’t want a “FART” you can try your vibratory tumbler with warm water, dawn dish soap, and I put in about three sprays of brass juice (the case lube). I don’t use a dehydrator either, just put it on a towel and lay it over a register for my heating and air system. Cases are dry overnight, spray a bit more case lube on and start loading. My way may not be optimal, but it is easy, cheap, and works fine Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Need 4 valid scores for initial classification. After that it goes to best 6 of 8. In your case, they should count the 4 highest scores, if you had 5 valid scores
  15. Haha that was a while ago, but I didn’t know I was recommending a cordless drill/driver...or are we talking impact drills? I would definitely change my answer now. I would recommend Doubles Drill and then a dedicated transition drill. I like doing 90 degree transition and a wide transition drill. Obviously you have to train draws, reloads, movement and all components of USPSA, but I find I get a lot from doubles and transition drills. Also get on PSTG, a ton of good info and videos there
