    JP jumps on the short stroke bandwagon

    I use a carbine buffer cut down to 1.08" It sits backwards in the tube so the rubber/plastic impacts the the metal plunger on the Taccom system. Pic would not upload.

    Best PCC trigger?

    Less recoil on my PCC?

    I run factory 115gr. I also get good results with Federal Suppressor 124gr but I get faster/flatter with 115gr full power loads and my sponsor provides them so...

    Less recoil on my PCC?

    Once I figured out the amount of space I needed to fill I took apart a carbine buffer cut it down and put the plastic plug back in. Stuck it in the bottom of the tube so the taccom kit hits the plastic on the buffer. Quarter work a bit but I bent up a bunch of them experimenting. Going to be some pissed of vending machine techs out there.

    Less recoil on my PCC?

    I spent a lot of rounds analyzing what works best for me and here is what I found. 1) Taccom 3 stage SS kit 2) Remove internal bolt weight 3) Shorten the stroke further just long enough to let the trigger reliably reset 4) Use a good trigger that will take a beating like a JP

    JP jumps on the short stroke bandwagon

    With the weight in I felt that the muzzle climbed up more at the rear of the stroke and dipped down more when the bolt came forward. I also have mine stroked shorter further than just the Taccom SS kit by using an cut down carbine buffer reversed at the back of the tube. Cycles fast and flat.

    Longer buffer is essentially short stroking the gun. Heavy buffer means less recoil into the shoulder and more energy forward when the bolt slams forward. None of that has an impact of changing the rotational torque. So far the general consensus is less reciprocating mass, shorter stroke and fast cycling equates to faster dot recovery caused by less dot movement. How the gun feels in recoil is subjective. My teammate and I run nearly identical setups but his bolt is heavier and his gun is not stroked as short. He actually gets low second hits with my gun as it cycles faster and flatter causing him to overcompensate when pulling it out of recoil compared to his.

    45 degree offset mount questions

    I use a cheap one off Amazon for $12. Works fine.

    How exactly does it take the rotational torque out of the equation?
  10. I forgot I did have the safety hole issue but it was easily rectified. The mag release catching is just a matter of spinning the nut. No issue on the ejector or the spare I picked up. I did clean them up a bit as they are a bit rough on the edges. Other than the safety pin hole mine was plug and play.
  11. I have one but I am not a lefty so I don't know if I will have any input that is relevant. Ordered Ambi by mistake actually. I run a JP trigger system in it.

    Grips

    Rubber texture is the difference. No FG model available. I like the Hogue w/FG for PCC because of how thin it is. I don't use it for my 556 guns because it feels too thin when one-handing a heavy gun. I use an Ergo for 556 guns. I ran 150 rounds today with the K2+ on the PCC and like the relaxed grip angle so far. Will shoot some more tomorrow after installing a TACCOM feed ramp and short brake.

    Grips

    Just put a K2+ on mine today to try out the grip angle. We will see how it goes Saturday.

    There are several threads on short stroking in the first few pages. You can get JP's add-on kit or you can look at the Taccom 3-Stage with short stroke upgrade. I am using that with the addition of a cut down reverse buffer to further shorten the stroke. Recoil is subjective so what you are really looking for is less dot movement/ faster recovery.

    2 optics on PCC?

    Just ordered an offset and TRS-25. Should be here in time for the last outdoor match of the season.
