  1. When I called they gave me no trouble about switching barrels. Waiting for it to come back.
  2. Took the gun out to the range today, with the latest version of the cmore RTS, as I plan to use it for carry optics. It is correct what everyone says about the LCI. Big black streak on the lens after only 50 rounds. It is sort of amazing Sig sent them out that way. Will be calling factory tomorrow. Will advise. The other thing I noticed was a slight vibration/buzz in the trigger. I experienced something similar in a while back in a CZ 75B when I replaced the stock trigger, and found the SAO straight trigger I installed set up a vibration until I fit it better. (I think it caused the slide to rub something the wrong way, if my fading memory is correct.) Has anyone else noticed that? Also, I've read the various posts on aftermarket triggers. Its not bad now, but it aint a well tuned 1911. (sorry all) The reset is a touch long, but what I'd really like is a crispier break. Whats best to get a sharp 1911-like snap, to the extent possible. Thanks all
  3. Hi - So I got a rebuild kit for the kensight adjustable, for a 1911, and no instructions were included. I can't figure out how to replace the windage adjustment screw. Anyone know how to get the old screw out and new one in? Nothing at Kensight web site. thanks all.
  4. Hi - So I got a rebuild kit for the kensight adjustable, for a 1911 but same one is used in lots of other guns, and no instructions were included. I can't figure out how to replace the windage adjustment screw. Anyone know how to get the old screw out and new one in? Nothing at Kensight web site. Thanks
  5. Thanks for all the advice folks. Clearly need to work on the visualization. Will try to start applying it this weekend. Will advise how it goes.
  6. Hi, Any techniques anyone can offer to stop failing to shoot targets in the more complex stages? Shot two matches this weekend and in both failed to engage targets. Full disclosure, I aint that good, but the matches are fun. Even after noting each target, coming up with a stage plan, when the buzzer rings I'll sometimes finish the stage thinking I hit all the targets...not. I realize this is a total head thing, but advice welcome on how to make sure I SEE each target during the stage. FYI I'm still new at this, am not so young anymore, and probably still thinking too much to avoid a DQ... '
  7. Believe it or not accupuncture helps a lot, and there are even clinical tests to prove it. I still stretch and exercise to keep the muscles strong, but acupuncture has eliminated, for now, any need for surgery. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3523426/ Our findings indicated that the acupuncture can improve the overall subjective symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome and could be adopted in comprehensive care programs of these patients. or https://www.healthline.com/health-news/acupuncture-for-carpal-tunnel-syndrome#3
  8. here's some photos. You can also see I ground down the mag release - kept dropping mags at wrong moment!
  9. I vote for a custom thumb rest. I have short thumbs and found the stock thumb rest pulled my left hand way too far forward. Crafted another out of aluminum angle iron which extends downward a bit and as far rearward as possible without interfering with slide release. WIth a firm grip it helps keep barrel flat. Big difference in speed when shooting steel matches.
  10. my problem isnt pain from the mag release but the ease at which it drops the mag. It seems if my palm even brushes it when i shoot the mag drops. Ive grinded it down to not much more than a nub, but still....any suggestions on how to make the mag HARDER to drop?
  11. Thanks all. To the folks who recommended the Redding die, wouldn’t the Dillon decapping resizing die accomplish the same?
  12. Thanks all. Slow brain today on my part! heavier bullets, duh! Thanks for reminding me! and for the load recommendation. More accepted!
  13. I've recently decided to start reloading 40 caliber Smith & Wesson for USPSA limited. Looking over the velocities of commercial 40 caliber they are usually 1000 ft./s with 180 grain bullet giving a power factor of 180. If I reload to make major I need to have a minimum velocity of 920 to make 165. It's not much of a difference from 1000 ft./s. Cost aside, and .40 is not much more than 9 mm these days, is there any reason to reload? I do it in 9 mm and 45 ACP to make a softer shooting round than commercial stuff, other than federals 150 syntek. What am I missing about reloading 40? I'm certain there is a lot, so have pity on me.
