Sees Sights (6/11)

  1. JP light contour barrel or Criterion Core series.
  2. I think 18” barrels are having a resurgence in popularity. I prefer 18”, the rifle length has a softer recoil impulse, increased velocity, and they handle just as well as a 16”. Smoke Composites makes a nice carbon fiber handguard, all the cut out make the handguard feel smaller and provide great grip. American Precision Arms makes a very effective lightweight muzzle brake called the Answer. I’ve never used the green loctite, I use stainless shim stock to make a shim for uppers that have a loose fit, which is most uppers. I prefer the looks of uppers w/o forward assist and have used vltor uppers, but have to shim them. I think I would just use BCM uppers and not worry about it.

    G43x and 48

    Glock store makes a tungsten RSA with a little lighter spring.
  4. The APA Answer would be my pick. 2.5oz and one of the most effective brakes for 3gun.
  5. Their website says it fits Gen 4.
  6. Sounds like you need shade, either an umbrella or a wide brimmed hat should work. High volumes of sugar can negatively effect hydration, all that fruit has a lot of sugar. Not sure how big of a role this may be playing, but perhaps something to consider. Look for something better than Gatorade, I like the nuun tablets. They also make some with caffeine, so maybe you can reduce your coffee intake a little more.
  7. This is what I would get: https://www.gladiatorgarageworks.com/collections/workbenches/products/4-adjustable-height-hardwood-workbench I have the 6’ version, it’s very stable. You can get an 8’ 2x12 and cut in half to make a shelf underneath. This is where I store bullets which adds weight and stability to the bench. I don’t think anything with wheels will offer enough stability.
  8. I’ve been using Handle-it Grips skate tape on glocks for the past six months. My training gun has seen a lot of use in dry fire and live fire without any peeling. I sanded the factory texture smooth and then cleaned the grip well. Use heat to activate the adhesive to really stick. This will be much easier to replace as the texture wears over time. I expected to change every 6 months, but think it will probably make a year.
  9. The Apex extractor fixed weak ejection in my Gen4 guns.
  10. I guess it really depends on how competitive you want to be. I shoot open with a benelli m2, so here are my thoughts. You already own the m2, just start with that. Skip the speed loaders and learn how to quad load. If you have no interest in quad loading, then buy a box fed shotgun.
  11. Could be a little slow, but sounds good enough. It’s important to understand that CS is reverse temp sensitive, so if it was a hot day or you left your ammo in a hot car, then your velocities will drop. If it helps, I use 135g blue Bullets with 3.6g CS, and get 990fps from a Glock 17 (4.5” barrel) on a 70 degree day. When the temps get into the 90’s, then velocity drops to around 965fps.
  12. The break on the Timney is pretty nice, but the reset is where it goes south. I much prefer the Johnny Glock triggers.
