  1. Foxtrot Mike also makes some great pccs, their forward side charger is pretty great, you don't have to break your grip to manipulate the action. You can find them complete with their lower but if you want to use a different lower their complete uppers are pretty well priced and frequently on sale at Brownells and Primary Arms. Their customer service is great too.
  2. I have it using the Taccom3g buffer with short stroke kit. It works OK but I have had issues. the screw that keeps the secondary buffer together and connected to the cap would always come loose. Also I feel like the secondary buffer negates some short stroke effects. So another shooter that was running it on his Limcat showed me that he just installed pistol buffer tube instead with the Odin stock piece and it ran way better for him. I just replaced mine with a pistol tube and hopefully will try it out this weekend then at a local match next weekend.
  3. So digressing back to the original question and based on what has been gleaned from these posts, since you are shooting factory ammo you might want to consider round nose ammo. When I had the issue there was a time I was switch back and forth from the 150 syntech which I was trying out and reloads, but can't remember if that's when I had issues. (Getting old). Flat nosed profile may cause issues but it should be remedied by smoothing out some of the internal surfaces a little (cant stress enough little). I smoothed out the back part where the halves meet and a little of the inner polymer rail to help with the feeding. Mileage may vary, I can only tell you from my experience.

  4. Yep, luckily I had a buddy that gave me the skinny on the Shadow 2 before I got into reloading and I've been using Bayou Bullets 135 RN ever since. Sent from my BTV-W09 using Tapatalk
  5. Yes I was running reloads, OAL 1.24, based on the responses to the post maybe might have been too tight. But it was the same OAL that I ran for my S2 too, it didn't seem to mind. I haven't had any hiccups since I cleaned up the inside a little. Sent from my BTV-W09 using Tapatalk
  6. You should be fine. Sent from my BTV-W09 using Tapatalk
  7. Oh and I forgot to add, with longer extensions I have found smoothing out the interior is a good idea. Doesn't matter which ones mbx or Taylor, I've had the spring bind up on both out of the box, but nothing a little smoothing out didn't cure. I am sure it also would have broken in eventually if I had did nothing, but the worst time for you to have feeding issues is during a match, which is what happened to me. I didn't have this issue with the TTI. Sent from my BTV-W09 using Tapatalk
  8. I first started out with the MBX then got the Goliath then got a tti just to compare. I have found both the Goliath and the TTI are great. It's really a matter of preference and how many rounds you want to carry during a stage depending on the rules (USPSA, outlaw, uml, etc). What got me to try get the Goliath was reports of the mag and extension snapping off on the MBX extensions because there was no support at the base where they meet. The metal stops short from the base and it's just polymer at the base where the extension is mounted. The great thing about the Goliath and the TTI is that the extensions go further up to help support that area making it more durable. If I had to choose one I'd go with the Goliath although the newer tti is gtg too. Sent from my BTV-W09 using Tapatalk
  9. Maybe an updated design to help prevent the pin from snapping? When mine snapped it was right where the step pin is. Sent from my BTV-W09 using Tapatalk
  10. It's a Limcat so it's pretty slick. The upper is well balanced and beautiful. The ones I've seen shot very well, the sponsored guys sent Johnny their lowers andhe made the uppers and cerakoted the assembled rifles together to match. It looks like Max is running the same lower. It's a beautiful pcc and max signing up with Limcat is a huge get. I'm sure max had no shortage of companies knocking on door to shoot their stuff. I like the barrel set up a lot more than your normal short N shrouded barrel. It seem like the 10" with pinned comp is a winner. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  11. To digress, FoxTrot Mike makes a ready to go upper that is CA compliant with a comp for a decent price. Primary arms and Brownells carries them and you'll be hard pressed to find a complete upper with BCG for a better price. Sent from my BTV-W09 using Tapatalk
  12. Not just Richmond, if you get out Davis (Yolo Sportsmen) or Linden (near Stockton) you'll see a lot of the same guys going to the matches at these places. I know Almaden Valley has a club but they don't have matches in the winter. The NorCal PCC Championship is even coming up in June @ Richmond. Resurgent was just announced as a sponsor.
  13. Another option that has been popping up as of late has been the Ruger PC Carbine. Sent from my BTV-W09 using Tapatalk
  14. O there are PCC shooters in California....lol. I guess it depends on which part of the state your in. I shoot at Richmond and yolo and there are a good amount of PCC guys at these matches. There are a ton of great options, but if your looking for factory options JP makes a CA featurless version. For the most part featureless is the way to go when it comes to being compliant. Other than that highly recommend building your own. There are a couple 9mms lowers that trickle in to local stores from time to time. Sent from my BTV-W09 using Tapatalk
  15. I've seen the first couple of PCCs that Johnny made for some close family friends. They are slick pieces of machinery, most of the recoil management you will find is in tunning a load. The two shooters that run them have different lower internals etc. Check out iamrandymelton and kmelton81983 on IG, they both have vids of them running their Limcat setups. Both of their pccs were built on their own pccs lowers that they sent to Johnny and he built the uppers around what they already had. From what I understand, Limcat is only selling their pccs complete other than these two. It's a nice PCC if you have the money. Sent from my BTV-W09 using Tapatalk
  16. It's not a dumb question. I've been running a dedicated qc10 but was intrigued by the Stern defense conversation so I got one. Other than the mag release, its not a bad deal just going with a conversation. Taccom has tested their buffers with this setup witb success if you wanted to get a dedicated buffer although Stern recommends that a standard AR buffer be used. An adapter is not a bad way to go, especially if your in a restricted state or your lgs doesn't carry dedicated lowers. I'm finishing building a second pcc on a Stern defense with a spare lower and it's been great so far. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  17. Yeah I got mine a couple of weeks ago before Xmas sales season for cheaper than $290 from optics planet. There are better deals to be had right now. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk
  18. I ordered a couple from xtreme precision awhile back for occasions like this. They seem to be a little more robust than the stock pin with the coating. https://ar15xtreme.com/store/product/ar-15-platform-9mm-firing-pin/ Sent from my BTV-W09 using Tapatalk
  19. Man Max tanked stage 2....i mean tanks it.... And still comes out on top with Josh breathing down his neck. That's pretty amazing. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  20. Max is one of best and pretty active on the pcc groups. He will be a household name before you know it. I have heard nothing but great things from people that know him. Great guy, great shooter, congrats! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  21. Agreed check that first, what lower are you running? I had mating issues with my QC10 lower and a FM upper. I had to modify my extractor a bit to get it to ride properly. Sent from my BTV-W09 using Tapatalk
  22. I have a QC 10 lower too and had the same thing happen using a borrowed TF base plate. I figured it was me slamming the mag into the bolt during the match which I was doing a little more violently to get the mag to seat properly. I just straightened it up and got a mbx mega ext for my next match. Two matches later haven't seen the problem since. I'm running a FoxTrot Mike upper. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  23. From what I've seen the MBX are pretty similar to the Taccom but the Taccom being less expensive. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
  24. I have the armaspec, I bought this first. As a 9mm buffer it works fine, the issue for me is that it doesn't soften the felt recoil like other systems. I decided to invest in a second buffer for a second build and bought an mbx. I now use the mbx in matches on my main build. It does a way better job mitigating felt recoil. If it were me I would have gone with the mbx from the get go. Sent from my BTV-W09 using Tapatalk
  25. Another one for the mbx, I am running a mega. As far as Magwell what AR 9 lower do you have? BMiller is a great option but there are others out there but it depends on which lower you have since a lot of them are not the same. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G935A using Tapatalk
