  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
  14. 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.
  15. Is a 320 rx full size carry optics legal?
  16. My Lone Wolf conversion barrel works fine without changing anything but mags.I guess I got lucky too.
  17. 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
  18. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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 rou
