  1. Yeah, that's what I'm thinking too. Or heck, $410, profit margin is safe. I don't need a crazy strong aluminum housing. I'm not tossing my competition pistols out of helicopters.
  2. Yeah maybe. I think there might be enough good experiences with the SRO for me to take a look. I'd need a new mount though. The changes mentioned in here don't seem like they'd add all that much more to the cost.
  3. They definitely could. It makes me wonder how hard it would be to get them built right, market something that actually works reliably like the AMG labs timers guys do for their timers.
  4. That is a sweet gun. Did Benny do all the work on yours, or just the barrel porting, gas system, and spring?
  5. I'll second the thanks. This review is great. Especially the trigger pull video.
  6. That would make sense given that it's still a locked breach gun, and that modular breach face is the one big differentiator for Infinity slides (so, what they could work with).
  7. I'm really curious to know how that works. It sure looks cool.
  8. Thanks for the background. Looks like I have some reading to do.
  9. I'm glad yours ran well! I haven't seen that, but I haven't seen a ton of examples either, so maybe my buddies and I have bad luck? Did you mod your Vepr at all?
  10. Looks great! Who did your coating?
  11. +1 on brake cleaner. Maybe soak stuff if it's really stubborn. Oh, and do it in a well ventilated place.
  12. The wait is the worst! Let us know what you think of it. Do you have any other box mag fed shotguns to compare it to?
  13. FWIW, the laugo doesn't "look" (yes, I know looks can be deceiving) all that much flatter than a Shadow 2.
  14. From an engineering standpoint it's cool. From a game standpoint (specifically an open gun standpoint), I'm not seeing anything it does better than a well tuned Honcho/Chaos/Infinity/Limcat/other fancy custom 2011. Maybe I'm wrong. Of those, the Honcho is interesting because it costs a lot less to make, right? So if this can be made in not-super-expensive limited runs, and then need fewer mods to be awesome, then it might go somewhere. It would also help if it got out in the wild so that fancy custom smith guys could start messing around with a couple, see what they can do to make the trigger better, how it responds to excess pressure, getting the weight right, etc.
  15. Double Alpha makes one too: https://www.doublealpha.biz/us/daa-1911-2011-ambi-safeties-with-shield And Brazos makes a shield that you could have fit to your frame: http://www.1911store.com/thumbguardbcg.aspx
