  1. Yeah after about 2-3 months the mbx spring ends up being between 1/2 and 3/4 of its original length. On the grams maybe 4-5 months tops before same thing on my big sticks. Like i said though im real bad about stuffing that extra round in and then forcing it into the gun until it catches. Its pretty dumb I deserve to have issues from it.... You get greedy thats what happens...Its not unusual for me to run 1500 rounds every two weeks... Current open pistol probably has over 60k through it....its very near smooth bore...
  2. All springs and followers and recoil spring have been replaced all new. The MBX spring seems to crap out pretty fast though...as in within 2-3 months... The grams seem to last longer... Ill replace the mag catch and see what happens
  3. I wanted to see if you guys have had to replace your mag catches? 2011 plastic grip. Im real bad about stuffing my mags particularly the mbx I have to 30 rounds in the mag....then forcing it to catch in the gun using alot of force.... Im having low left nose dives in the middle of stages occasionally for many months now....the MG jhp are sticking right at the bottom of the ridge in the corner where it flattens out at the bottom of drivers side of feed ramp... Its happening no matter how many rounds i started with usually in the middle of the mag somewhere... They are MG JHP 124’s loaded out to 1.170 on new starline brass. I push the mag button....let the mag drop a little...smack it back up and then it feeds the round that was jammed... I cracked my old plastic grip over a year or so from overstuffing.... So now Im running a new grip....old dawson mag catch though... You think its likely my feed problem is mag catch related? It doesn't look worn or damaged. We have been over 20 other variables over the last few months.....mag springs and followers...feed Ramp...feed lips...recoil spring...etc etc... Its only happening once in awhile....Only during matches of course... Cut out on my mags looks pretty good as well... I might note that I just bought some old style infinity mags new in box someone had in their safe for years and though the lips on them do not match any spec ive heard of (around .320) they seem to run perfectly so far....No nose dives with them. Not one failure in maybe 1000 rounds. Yeah and I know....reload...stop stuffing my mags full...its just too tempting sometimes when you have 28 or 30 in a stage.... Anybody had mag catches wear out and start screwing up feeding?
  4. I wish Laugo would get it together and fast for open. I think the Alien doesn’t really fit any other category in the current market.....competition or otherwise. Maybe im wrong and they know something I do not about potential buyers in the US. Maybe their goal is military and LE. Not sure. On the civilian market Open shooters are used to spending near that or some more than that on a new pistol. I don’t see a bunch of production or carry optics guys spending 5k on a pistol....if they wanted to do that then they would probably shoot open.... I dont really see too many tacticool market guys spending that either.... As ingenuitive as the Alien is I would say if its not geared towards the right demand then it will fail in the US on the civilian market. Open shooters and rich toy buyers would be their only real customers at this price point yet Laugo is releasing early without addressing the open shooter market which I would say is the largest of the two by far... Many of the custom 2011 builders are capitalizing on deep pocket buyers..... I think it would be foolish not to notice that with a product such as Laugo’s. I dunno about you guys but I get sick of tinkering with all the little details that lead to issues with these 2011’s over the long term. Not only that but the short supply of highly experienced builders with wait times capable of building or refitting a great 2011 is a pit too. It would be nice to have other choices with modular user replaceable components... Hopefully Laugo will read this...and read all the other comments floating around.
  5. Hmm. Doesn't sound like the response I got when my thumb snapped off an SV single side wide safety on a stage....it broke on the side in a straight jagged vertical line a few mm away from where it meets shaft. I called. There was no discussion of honoring it.....We can sell you a new one was the response... Looked like pot metal inside. Porous as hell. Make something wrong you should replace it when you realize its defective....or at least be willing to look. Ill pass on SV guns for life...
  6. I live in the US and in Norway....The guys in Norway have had the Alien for about 6-8 months. I have handled one there and they say they have been reliable..... 2 weeks ago I got one of my friends in Norway to ask one of the guys from Laugo about it running 9 major..... The response was that they have been testing the Alien with 9 major (pf or load not specified) and that it has run successfully through at least one test gun 10,000 rounds with no issues. They also said they are running prototype comps currently and one will be released in a few months. Threaded barrel With comp. They will have a threaded available for silencers as well. Probably the same.... They said it could easily be added by just dropping it in to any existing pistol... I like the idea of the Alien for many reasons for open.... Does anyone on the forum have any enlightening information beyond what I already know?

    Sig Romeo 3XL

    I'm not sure how big the Holosun 510c window is but online it says lens size 24mm H x 32mm W. Is that correct? The Sig Romeo Xl window size is 24mm H x 32mm W. The body on the sig is a lot smaller. Narrower...And weighs 1.5 oz.. and has a nice 6moa dot....
  9. Just got the Sig Romeo 3 XL. Next day from Atlas with a mount. I have to say great customer service from them. We will see if the XL holds up....
  10. I may be willing to get rid of a 5 moa that I will get this week. I bought a 5 and a 2.5 and now another 5.... Im not yet sure if Im going to use the 3rd Sro. Ill post if I decide not to use it. I already have a co and open gun and Im not even sure it im going to run co so i probably dont need to have 2 co guns.
  11. Well Im at about 2500-3000 rounds now. No issues at all. I can track the Sro just as well as I could with the Slideride. No issue with window size. I was running a horizontal mount Slideride for years and I had alot of diagonal squiggle in the dot with it. With the Sro dot movement is considerably less and more vertical but I do think the horizontal mount cmore has an effect on the plastic bends in the front with flexing under recoil where when upright not as much. I also have less crap blowing on my glass with the SRO compared to horizontal slide ride. Yes I am completely happy with the Sro. I will never go back unless it fails or something better comes out. Ive had cmore upright and horizontal... rts2’s....had vortex...and had a dp pro. The Sro is unquestionably superior in every way it could be to all of the above imo . .We have 2 sro’s one on a p10f slide and the other on open gun Cheely Mount. The slide mounted one only has a few hundred rounds but no issues with either one. I have a third on the way that will either go on an M&P or an Accushadow so we will see if any fail over time.
  12. And btw when I took that picture Friday I did not notice if you look above the knuckle on my thumb you’ll see a small spot in the Infinity safety......well ...At the Saturday match 8th stage 2nd shot: http://
  13. Well I have about 1000 rounds with the Trijicon Sro now. I have had rts2’s. Had DP pro’s. Normally run a cmore horizontally. Of them all I have to say the Sro is my favorite by a long shot. No issues. No problems. Glass is excellent. Its not getting a bunch of crap blown on the glass. Shot all day outdoor this weekend and the dot works great in bright sunlight. Was able to choose whatever brightness I wanted with little to no distortion on the dot. The 5 moa is my preferred. Cheely Mount for narrow frame but it sits on a PT wide frame so its off center. Could shave foot down but doesn’t seem to matter. 9 major Infinity Ultimatch barrel 1:24 with 3 chamber comp no popples with 124gr MG JHP’s 6.8-.6.9 Auto Comp. I zeroed it with 3 elevation clicks and one windage click at 25 yards. With Zero at 25 yards my shots hit maybe 1” low at 15 feet if that. At 25 feet its still very near zero. So minimal hold over. Ill never go back to a cmore no way as long as the Sro holds up.....great so far http://
