  1. I got the .150 tall x .100 wide at the advice of a friend who knows. It is roughly the same height as the stock front sight. I didn’t need to adjust the rear sight any. I like the narrower front sight but the .100 wide is really small. I wished I had got a different on that was a little wider. I had previously used Dawson sights on a Glock that were .135 wide. I have since adapted and like them though. I also got extra green fiber because I really prefer green over red.
  2. I think IDPA requires reload from slide lock, but yeah, never heard of no slide lock required.
  3. That makes sense. Mine is for USPSA too, I just didn’t know what the point was. I’m left handed so the slide stop and thumb rest are equally useless.
  4. But what is the advantage of that?
  5. What is the advantage of the pin only and no slide stop? I’m a lefty so I don’t care one way or the other, just curious.
  6. KKM is probably best balance of quality and value. I have a Glockstore that is accurate enough for 3-gun.
  7. Get a conversion barrel. It matters. I’ve run 9mm conversion in my 35 and never had this problem. The extractor should also be 9mm to ensure you don’t have this problem. I have gotten away with it at 3gun matches before when I just forgot to swap it out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Oh, gotcha... I misunderstood.
  9. Thats a 9mm mag though. This problem is pretty specific for 40s&w mags. I've never had a problem of any kind with 9mm and TTI basepads on my G34. Friend has the new +10 on a 31 round body and it works fine on his PCC. I ordered new springs from TTI before Area 3 and that was probably the most important factor in the rounds not nose diving, but other factors also seemed to show up. After the new springs I could not get 20 rounds in a mag, only 19. Not a big deal though.
  10. I have contradicted myself throughout this thread. It’s become sort of a narrative of my learning process with this issue. I just shot Area 3 (400+ rounds) and did not have this malfunction. I had one get FTF that didn’t go into the chamber but was unrelated to this nose dive in the mag issue. After battling it mildly off and on all season what I can officially say definitively is: -Brush out mags if they hit the ground. Always. -Happens less with copper, but would still happen occasionally. Blue Bullets was NOT primary culprit but could be a contributing factor. I still use them for practice. Did not have this malfunction in practice with Blue bullets the day before the match. - Smack rounds to back of magazine every 5-10 rounds when loading mags. -Make sure followers match mag bodies -OAL did not seem to matter. 1.125, 1.130, 1.135, all lengths would nose dive. If you do all of these things it will greatly minimize the issue. Again this is only with the TTI mag extensions. I don’t think this particular model was part of the issue. I’m going to try some of the Dawson extensions too and see how they work.
  11. My rifle brass usually needs a little trim after each firing and resizing. I just trim them all. It’s faster than marking or separating. If I already processed it myself and it’s being reloaded again it goes in one bucket. If it wasn’t mine or was factory new ammo, those cases go in a different bucket. I will sort headstamps from time to time if I am not loading hoser FMJ ammo.
  12. I run a Ghost Rocket connector kit in my 34 and 35. You file down a tab on the connector to customize the reset. Makes it much shorter. If you run the light striker spring you may get light primer strikes. My 35 has a Zev striker to remedy that. My 34 didn’t need it. Around $40 for the kit. Zev skelotnized striker is $80.
  13. My first pistol was a Glock. It what I compete with because it’s what I had then upgraded to a 34 and 35. I carry a CZ P-07. Yeah, they’re different. But if you practice with it it’s fine. After shooting a friend’s Shadow 2 I want one but am not looking forward to relearning draws and reloads. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I used both longer and stock springs and it didn’t really matter. Happened either way. The best fix was using copper bullets. But round nose bullets might help, less surface area? I think the flat nose combined with coating drug on the inside. Flat nose copper just work. I wish the Blue bullets worked. I like them. Still shoot them in 9mm.
  15. I still have about 700 Blue bullets left. I’ll use them for practice but not use in matches. Go ahead and experiment see if you get them to work. If you figure something out I’d like to know. GP Section was a fun match. Very well done.
