  1. My mbx worked pretty good out of the bag but a couple needed the feedlips adjusted and the follower near the top would stick a little on a couple mags and make the last few rounds nose dive. All in all though most of the mags worked great and compaired to all the issues i was having to get sti gen 1 mags to run 9mm reliably the mbx's are a much better option.
  2. The 510c works good, ive got over 10k rds on mine. It's pretty bulky though and ever since i was able to compare it to a sig romeo3xl I've been wanting to switch to the sig. Its window isnt much smaller but its a lot smaller in its overall size and the dot is a bit better than the 510c. The only reason i haven't made the switch is the 510c is a lot cheaper and has been very reliable.
  3. I was able to compare the 510c to the r3xl myself and like kitestir said there isnt much of a difference in window size other than the corners which i dont think is a big deal. The dot on the other hand looks a lot better its nice and big and bright. I also like that its overall size is a lot smaller. really the only thing that could be a negative is its durability but only time will tell on that.
  4. I've tried FO front and rear sight sights and for me it was hard to be fast and accurate. there's just to much going on to be able to focus and line up the sights quickly, ive tried red rear and green front and the other way around and neither worked good for me.
  5. That was my old gun and yes i stroked it by .250. i used stock 2 springs and they had to be cut so they didnt bind. I also dont think it made much of a difference myself.
  6. I got a chance to look at the romeo3xl 6moa today and compare it to the 510c. The window size kinda looks like its in between the 510c and DPP. The dot on the xl is much brighter than the 510c and of course the dot is a lot bigger. From first impression I really like it and think its gonna replace my 510c.
  7. I haven't gotten one yet but the gun I held had the standard texture not the aggressive texture. I feel the aggressive one would feel like the pt evo since they look similar.
  8. I put the pt evo on my open gun last year, it didnt require much fitting to my frame and it felt really good. Recently though I held a Cheely e2 and I'm seriously considering a change to the e2. The second i picked up the gun with the e2 grip it fit like a glove the contour and texture of it felt much better than the pt evo to me. The pt evo texture all be it's aggressive it feels to me like its too fine, if you get what i mean.
  9. Hopefully it'll hold up for a long time with no issues. I've got about 10k rds on my 510c and still running good and on the original battery. I'm gonna have to see if i can find one and look at it in person.
  10. I'm really thinking of switching to the r3xl from the 510c. The window looks like its not much different in size but the option for a 6moa dot is nice. The actual physical size and weight being less is also a plus to me.
  11. I've been using sport pistol since last year in 9mm and .40sw major and minor and have nothing bad to say about it. It's very similar to n320 but a lot cheaper it meters well is very consistent and clean.
  12. I know a lot of people like a 12lb spring for the x5 with standard minor pf loads. I'd try 10-12lb springs myself and see how it feels and cycles. The downside to going too light on the spring is you might have an issue with feeding and barrel lockup. What's the pf of your loads?'
  13. I shoot 9 major and dont have any issues but it seems that most top shooters use 38sc. it should be more reliable but as others have said 9maj works great as long as its tuned properly, also pressures should be a little lower with 38sc and there are more options for powder. If money isn't a concern for you deffinitly 38sc but money is always a concern lol Like Joe4d said if your really looking to shoot with a dot, carry optics is a great cheap way to shoot with a dot. Open is a lot of fun but it can also be a lot of work and can be extremely expensive.
  14. I have my trigger set at 2 - 2 1/4 lbs and that feels good to me. I like a more positive reset that I have with the higher trigger weight and knowing that hammer follow wont be an issue. I've had my trigger down around 13oz and everywhere in between and from what I've noticed is trigger weight isn't all that important its how the trigger functions that matters. The only time it makes sense to me to have a sub 1lb trigger in a handgun is for bullseye shooting.
  15. Like Demp223 i really like the Peltor Tactical 500. I added the gel cup to mine which makes it even better.
  16. I just did some testing and from what I've seen there is a 10-15 fps average difference in hot and cold chrono readings. the one set of loads i had them down around 35-40f and the other rounds where around 75f. its not a huge difference and at least I know that its not inverse temp sensitive.
  17. I found a cover for the 510c its not a perfect fit but it does fit pretty good, its made by Scopecoat and is made for the eotech EXPS 2 or 3. This is the item number SCP12HE11BK i got it on amazon.
  18. I tried to get as good of a picture as i could of the brightness and sizes of the 510c vs DPP. The DPP is just a little bit brighter but not a ton but since it is brighter it gives a little bit more of a starburst look in the picture.
  19. Thanks I'll definitely be doing that
  20. loving my 510c the window is huge!! I'm using the TEvo Sports double sided mount, I went with the double sided mount since the 510c has a little bit of weight to it and the dot shouldn't wiggle around in the window as much. I've shot around 3-4k of 9mm major with it and so far its been running great but we'll see, though I think it will hold up fine. The other great thing is there only $270-280 shipped at least on optics planet they are right now.
  21. I've done some loads with the 115gr RN blue bullets 9.8gr AA#7 1.165oal fed small pistol primers That was giving me 168pf another load is 10.2gr AA#7 1.165oal Fed small pistol primers That was giving me around a 172pf Of course start lower than my loads and work up. I've also tried 125gr TC blue bullets and I prefer those over the 115's myself.
  22. On my old Akai limited 2011 .40 I tried the aluminum and egw shock buffs, on that gun it worked perfect no issues at all, I even tried using them both together so the egw would be be sandwiched between the recoil rod and the aluminum buffer and that also worked fine but in the end I only used the aluminum buffer my slide was also stroked otherwise im sure the two of them together wouldn't work on a non stroked slide. Now I have a 2011 9mm open and I tried the aluminum buffer and 6 out of 10 times it would cause the slide to lock back, i tried doing some fitting on it to see if i could get it to stop locking up the slide but that didnt really change anything, so now no buffer for me. I don't think the gun needs it anyways since when I had it in there I saw very little signs of it being hit hard at all.
  23. I'm using a 510c on my 9mm open and I have a sw22 victory for steel challenge and have a DPP on it. I've been thinking of selling the two DPP and buying 2 more 510c. I really like the 510c on my 9mm open and figure I'll probably like it on my .22 and it'll keep the two guns the same optic wise and I'll have a backup if either one of the optics go bad. I'm not 100% sure if I'm going to do it yet I'm just waiting to get done uspsa shooting this year and then I'll pull it off my 9mm and put it on the .22 and give it a try.
  24. I really like aa#7 for 9 major, I'm using 9.6gr 1.170oal 125gr zero jhp 173pf and as far as 115gr I've loaded to 10.2gr 1.150oal 115gr zero jhp but it was only at 167pf thats to close for me so ill need to go up a couple 10th's of a grain to get me around 170ish where id be happy to be at. 5.5in kkm no holes.
  25. My barrel must be a little slow i guess because i have a 5.5" kkm barrel no holes just the comp and with 10.2gr of aa#7 and 115gr zero jhp im only getting about 167pf if im remembering correctly
