  1. I would highly recommend JEM especially for your first build. My current open blaster is a JEM frame and slide. The best part is JEM charges a very small fee to fit the frame and slide. They also can tri top. Brazos is another great option and will also do fitting but costs a few hundred more then JEM. Are you building a 2011 for limited, open or three gun?
  2. I measured my sp01 safety model and it's .549. It now has a threaded barrel and comp for open, I ordered a sp01 barrel. I believe who sold you that barrel shipped a standard 75b barrel.
  3. Do you have a calipers? If so measure the outer diameter of both barrels and post the sizes. I'll measure my sp01 safety model.
  4. I thought the sp01 and the shadow 1 are identical except for the firing pin block system? Is it possible he ended up with a 75b barrel? The 75b barrel is smaller outer diameter than the sp01.
  5. 9mm isn't approved for USPSA limited major
  6. Are you going to do any poppels? If not the mbx comp works much better than the binary. If so x2 3/16 plus the binary is much better. Not sure about The mbx with popples yet, will be trying that in the future. Nose weight is very different when comparing long titanium vs long stainless if that's a concern. The binary takes more work to fit depending on barrel. .685 tap and die along with a egw align reamer.
  7. I think Carry Optics Should have a sub-forum as its one of the hottest growing divisions and it would help to unclutter things.
  8. Very interested! A short video might be easier unless you all ready have the pictures.
  9. If your going to attempt to shoot 9 major thru the shadow 2 you must run a comp. The shadow 2 was not nato tested with +P+ ammo like the sp01 and shadow 1. I thought about converting a shadow 2 but once I saw the frame cracking issues with guys using minor PF ammo I decided to pass. I converted a SP01 that has been running flawless the last 6k-8k rounds using major ammo.

    DAA insert block

    I have a old para (made in canada) and a Rock Island double stack. Which block should I get? The 1911 or the Para. When I go onto Shootersconnection they list para (new model) and 1911 (para old model)
  11. Any major downsides in using RN fmj exposed lead bottom for major?
  12. Just stating what I found with my CZ's and making a recommendation to try. One should always test on their own and take recommendations like a grain of salt.
  13. If you bring it down to 1.14 oal you will be good to go. Also make sure you do the plunk/push/spin barrel test.
  14. If your barrel is reamed/throated than your good. If not then the bullet shoulder is getting very close to the rifling and sticking. It only takes one bullet to cause an issue at a match. The blue bullets FP can be loaded longer than most other profiles but at 1.15 your at max oal. Have you done accuracy testing with some other OAL's? How did you decide on 1.15? In the end if it works for you than have at it.
