  1. 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.
  2. My go to load is a coated 147 gn bullet with 3.1 gns of titegroup Its very accurate and very pleasant to shoot.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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

    X5 Blue bullets

    Just as an fyi Blue bullets does sell some of there 9mm bullets sized .356.With free shipping. I have ordered some 147 gn that should arrive this week.
  7. Is a 320 rx full size carry optics legal?
  8. My Lone Wolf conversion barrel works fine without changing anything but mags.I guess I got lucky too.
  9. would any one be loading a 147 gn bullet over autocomp? I am shooting bowling pins and need all the energy I can get to move the pins off the table. I am using 124 gn major loads now and would like to try a heavy bullet. please don't tell me to shoot a 45. my plan is to irritate the 45 shooters wo tell me I cant compete with them. thanks tim
  10. I have a sti dvc open in 9mm. anyone have a good bowling pin recipe? I have been using my 124 gn major loads and was wondering if 147 major would work better. any thoughts. Tim
  11. ALSIPD PLEASE POST THE OTHER SIDE WITH THE SLIDE RACKER ON THANKS TIM
  12. The extractor will hold a loaded round when shaken vigorously. And I clean out the extractor chamber regularly.And it get very dirty HI POWER JACK What aer you referring to by tune it up? And a new recoil spring in 3000 rounds,really I am not being a smart ass. please explain further. thanks for the replys Tim
  13. I need some collective wisdom. When I first got my dvc open I had failures to eject like others. I sent it back and also paid for a minor tune,which is setting it up to shoot minor loads with a spring change. When I got it back it worked for both major and minor loads. Fast forward about 3000 rounds of each through it and now I am getting failures to eject again with major ammo only,the minor goes bang without a hitch. The only thing that I did was to change bullets from Acme rn to Eggleston flat point.I was first thinking maybe a weak recoil spring for the major loads but it only has 3000 rounds on it.Yes I clean it regularly. For those who want to know more the minor load is 3.1 tite group with a 147 extreme 1.140 and the major load is 6.8 autocomp wit a eggleston 124 flat point at 1.165 Thanks Tim
  14. MY LOAD IS 6.8 AUTOCOMP 124 EGGLESTON COATED BULLET,1.165 OAL MIXED BRASS. OUT OF STI DVC OPEN NO HOLES 1380 FPS THIS IS FROM MEMORY .I AM AWAY FROM HOME RIGHT NOW.
