  1. Everglades makes a nice cost effective primer hold down mechanism that fits in the factory Dillon 1050 tool head over the priming station, so I can’t see the need for an aftermarket head with tapped full size opening at this location. Now I’m sure it’s more durable, but unless you are running automated I can’t imagine the factory head falling short.
  2. If anyone in this family gets a pair of Hunters Golds it’s gonna be me! I have been wanting some for awhile now and planned on pulling the trigger at MS Classic Level II butttttt unfortunately it had to be canceled. Seriously if she sticks with it I’ll certainly make the investment if they have a pair that fits her well, so far she has enjoyed it tremendously and is a surprisingly good shot. #prouddad
  3. Thanks for the suggestion charlie, only concern is the wisp seem to have small amount of facial coverage (I use tombstones which basically cover half my face ). While searching thru the Tifosi offerings I came across the podium, and grabbed a cheap pair off ebay to see if they will fit my kids face as small as the wisp! Sounds like foam plugs are the consensus for their little ears.... appreciate all the feedback
  4. I have a five(m) and seven(f) year old who love going to the range and shooting the 22/45 lite, but the entire time they complain about the glasses / ear muffs hurting. 90% of this is that they are not used to wearing anything on their face, but i do feel like if i found some gear more suited for their age it would be more comfortable. Can anyone recommend quality PPE for shooters under 10?
  5. Took my akai SRO Mount and got to work. Clipped the post off and then drilled / tapped. Just have to make sure and hold optic plumb while tightening down. Should work fine since I don’t plan on taking it back off once I spray the Mount black.
  6. second that! 8.2 gr Under a PD 124 makes 169PF out my KKM barrel with two popple holes
  7. Thanks but I’m looking for frame mounted to go on an open gun
  8. Wow....not even some milling of the blast shield could make that work. Thanks for the pic echotango!
  9. Can someone confirm the Romeo3 max or xl will fit the Everglades RTS2 Mount? (Pics would be awesome) I know another builder had to come out with a new version of the RTS2 Mount in order to allow the Romeo3 max enough clearance on muzzle side of Mount. thanks in advance!
  10. I would say they are supposed to be consumable to prevent damage or accelerated wear to the expensive part of the equation. I picked up mine off amazon no clue the brand but they started to show wear pretty quick and I don’t dry fire that often. About that time I got another 2011 and was having feeding issues. Figuring it was magazine related I needed to load up my own dummy rounds with my actual oal and projectile. Took an razorblade and trimmed some rubber to snuggly fit primer hole, pretty easy to make your own. Main thing is keeping them well marked as dummy
  11. Great video. That barrel doesn’t look a day old, incredibly precise fit for it to be spotless 50k in. When you talk about trigger jobs being something that needs addressing every 25k or so, what it is you look for to know when it’s time?
  12. This was my go to early on when switching calibers out, its great: https://youtu.be/Bvr7AcUFipY
  13. I liked that setup for Steel, but found it to be way too busy for partial and tuxedo shots forcing a slower pace
  14. Started with slideride 6 moa then went to the 510c with 2.5 moa and felt the trade off of glass size vs dot size wasn’t worth it. Jumped to the SRO 5 moa and it’s been great but after seeing the Romeo 3 XL 6 moa that’s where I’m headed next, should be best of both worlds. Hoping it ships in the next couple weeks!
  15. Akai makes both single and double sided SRO mounts
  16. So they drop fine but fall over when they reach the seater station ? If so you may need a little more bell
  17. I believe they set the end mill to cut deeper. I selected extra aggressive on my build that should be in shortly and will report back.
  18. I know the feeling I hit up the vets sale you described and then Black Friday came along but I kept thinking well at least I’m ahead of the rush I wouldn’t have delayed mine a day as PT has been awesome to work with, give us a range report when you get a hold of it. Judging by your dates I shouldn’t be too far out now.
  19. Great info.....so clearly the felt recoil will be different, which do you prefer on your setups ?
  20. That’s gorgeous, really like the double undercut haven’t seen that on many evos. Did you get additional barrels ?
  21. Akai now makes a right side thumb assist it’s the best I have found
  22. Clean it up and send it to Doug Jones and have him accurail it. Best option for $215! http://acc-u-rail.com/
  23. aluminum or steel grip????? I have a Honcho that’s three weeks out (hopefully) and just grabbed a 365xl couple weeks back so I like your style!
  24. I just took an ETS mag I couldn’t get to run and filled it with epoxy to strengthen it up, has worked great.
