Finally read the FAQs

Finally read the FAQs (3/11)

  1. I replaced my slide ride with a micro dot and its flawless with major and minor loads. But its a dvc open. A lot of the guys i shoot with went with the sideways mount. I just dont like the looks of it on there side. Tim
  2. Hi You left out a lot of needed info. shall we guedd what the gun is?
  3. Hi all, I just picked up a very dirty nickel plated revolver. I tried to clean it with #9 but the carbon just laughed at me. Does any one have a good cleaner that will get rid of the black and still leave the nicke l? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Tim
  4. Hi I just picked up a 9mm tactical sport,not orange. do people shoot major power factor loads out of them? Do you? Also my gun seems to have a very short throat.but I havnt tried any of my rmr 124jhp to see how long I can load those out to.
  5. Thanks for your info. I just ordered a sample pack of Brazo's coated 124 gn bullets. Looks like I will be able to load these long. Tim
  6. Hi Can any one tell me if a cz tactical sport barrel can be throated with a standard reamer or will I need a special hardened one.I just picked this up and would like to be able to use a longer oal to go with my other guns. Thanks Tim
  7. Hi I just bought a cz ts my blue bullets are way to long for the cz,my extreme bullets fit just fine. I would like to stick with coated bullets,I TRIED 1.10 and it was still to long to spin. The slide would hit it hard enough to chamber it so its close. How short did you need to go,with coated bullets? I am looking for what you did,please don't tell me to load the shorter until they spin.I am just interested in what works in YOUR cz. Thanks Tim
  8. I just picked up a tactical sport. My loaded blue bullets are way to long for the short throat but by extreme bullets are fine at the same oal. is anyone using blue bullets or any coated ones and how short did you have to go? I tried 1 at 1.10 and it still wouldn't spin. whats up cz?
  9. I had my DVC OPEN done and it works great now. But to be fair it wouldn't shoot anything before going back to them.They are great to deal with. I would try a 6 lb spring first ( that's what I use) it might work fine.
  10. My go to load is a coated 147 gn bullet with 3.1 gns of titegroup Its very accurate and very pleasant to shoot.
  11. Anyone running coated bullets in there major loads. I have been using 124gn eggleston I know that the majority use jhp. Am I the only one? By the way I don't notice any lead buildup in my comp,just carbon. Tim
  12. UPDATE: I sent the gun back for repair after speaking with STI. I have not had the chance to give it a good testing yet but I will say that the service was excellent under 3 weeks to ship it to them and back to me.
  13. Maybe a little off target but I just sent my sti dvc open back for repairs and it was gone and repaired and back in just over 2 weeks. Thankyou sti. If I were you i would call and call back an hour later until someone gets back to you. Good luck Tim
