  2. I'm running a 1/2" riser on my 510C
  3. In my experience you only need to file the internal edge of the TTI basepad that has the retaining pin. After that the process described above (load 35, push the top round down while smacking basepad, then adding #36) is needed for a bit before it wears in.
  4. I got my final testing USPSA match in - I'm planning to stay with the DBRS for the time being. I adjusted the way I mount the gun a bit and it significantly reduced bumpfires, I only had one. I also had some non-PCC shooters blind test the recoil system for me and they felt like the dot performance was fantastic and predictable with no specific remarks about recoil. Like @BossHoggLou mentioned the recoil is definitely harsher than the 3 stage setup but only people who have miles on the 3 stage setup know that. Has anyone tried the DBRS with the new ESSB? Is there any benefit in doing this? @TRUBL ETA: 24A 2C on this stage. You can split pretty ok with the DBRS.
  5. I shot Area 4 over the weekend and the buffer performed without any catastrophic issues. However, I did bump fire a number of times on different stages and because of the increased cyclic rate I turned a few heads. In general I don't want to send any more shots than the ones I really wanted to send so I may go back to the 3-stage buffer with marginally worse dot performance.
  6. It's not my experience that delaying the blowback resulted in higher velocity given the same load. The recoil impulse is increased because the bolt carrier mass is lighter given the same load.
  7. Depending on actual date I may be interested.
  8. Toss up between JP and MPX for me, if weight is an issue swap a CF tube on.
  9. I have around 700 rounds on this buffer now with a short function test and 2 USPSA matches. I'm going to have one more match and shake down practice before Area 4. It's definitely a more stiffer recoil impulse but I think the dot settles a predictably. I had one unintended bump fire but I'm not paying it much attention unless it happens more often.
  10. Right back pocket. George Jones, at the last NROI seminar I attended, advocated for not interacting with the shooter at all.
  11. I got a chance to test the DBRS, I'm a fan so far. I dropped a couple quarters in behind it because my brass piece didn't stick out very much and it seemed to be better. I'll get a chance to shake this out at USPSA twice this weekend and report back with more feedback. https://instagram.com/stories/khoi.shoots/2086436034224232099?igshid=1g10netz3z630
  12. @TRUBL I got the new buffer installed, bolt slug from the Extreme bolt removed and buffer detent removed, but I have a question before shaking it out this week. The brass part of the new buffer is peeking out past the front of the buffer extension area of the lower but turning the buffer tube another turn wouldn’t allow the upper to mount. Is this an issue? It looks like the rear of the bolt carrier and the front of the buffer would contact once shut but I have no way of visually confirming.
  13. Mine arrives Monday, can't wait to shake this down. I have the Extreme bolt, does anything need to be modified?
