    Greetings from SE Alaska

    Lots of good fishing around where I live in the Southeast if that's your thing.
  2. I just got some new parts today, a fresh old gen trigger bar with a new bolo. They replaced the new style trigger bar with the modified bolo that fit that one. Polished the snot out of the bar and did some live fire today. S2 ran 100% with 13# hammer spring. Hope I can run 12#, high hopes for 10. New BOLO needed no fitting/modifying at all. So with one more count of experience those with the new style trigger bars, you can alternatively buy a fresh old gen trigger bar instead of doing surgery to a BOLO.
  3. I do this and I found my accuracy to improve. After engaging the first target, I feel the efficiency of pulling the gun to the chest as I'm only exerting energy to turn and not fighting the momentum and swing of my gun fully extended. After the turn I pretty much transition my energy into driving my arms/gun forward which for me by now naturally points on target. With the eyes looking ahead of where I'm going, my arms will naturally drive there. Just like driving a car, you drive towards where you're looking. And as with Memphis and chenault are saying it helps to sort of keep the upper body square like a turret so transition with your thighs. I don't have much practice with that but just moving around right here I take it you're gonna want have your knees bent to transition with the thighs. I think moving with your thighs would be more for smaller angles tho. With wide turns you're gonna want to move you're feet and do some footwork. All pretty good tips here. Nice reading what I'm thinking being formulized.
  4. Hello everybody, I'm new to shooting sports and shot my first USPSA Pistol match last month. It was super fun and I felt I decently performed for my first time in Production. Shot slow and accurate, next match I won't be banging into walls and will make sure to pay attention at the stage briefings (acted like a newb when one stage was started holstered and UNLOADED) . With my situation living in Southeast Alaska, there are no local shooting matches of any kind besides trap shooting, so I have to travel to do any shooting/competing. I work in a restaurant and make good tips so I plan on traveling all over every couple months and shooting with everybody at their local USPSA matches (in Area 1). Next stop is either Hawaii or Mesa, AZ as I have friends to lodge with. Any suggestions of where the bigger USPSA communities are with the funnest matches? In my hometown of Ketchikan, Alaska we do have a decent enough range to host Steel Challenge matches, I'm hoping to learn how to host and sanction actual matches sometime in the future, maybe take a program with the NROI. Anyway, as I'm already hooked on USPSA, I hope to expand the sport and community and look forward to reading through all the wealth of knowledge in the posts and threads of all the various forums here. -Alvin

    What Bullet weight for 9mm Production

    What works for me in my stock 2 is 147gr bullets with an 8# recoil spring. Recoil is soft and flat with my reloads.
  6. Well in my case, one day after cleaning the internals of my S2 with new trigger bar and cut BOLO to fit the new bar, the gun would short stroke in DA. Before that it was running reliably with a 15# hammer spring. So after that I just put back in the factory disco. I did try some grease in some spots and reinstalling all the internals to see if it would not short stroke, but no luck. I might try installing it again tonight. I removed material at the inner curve to fit the new trigger bar and I did actually remove material at the nose when the BOLO was working in my case. However with the tools I had, I removed material more throughout the inner curve as opposed to the targeted area as shown here and on the PD website. I was not able to further test if it would run lighter hammer springs (14# and below). So with that said I don't know if the removal of material outside of the targeted area in the curve would adversely affect the DA making it short stroke. So basically I did get the BOLO to work as intended, but somehow it started short stroking DA after cleaning and reinstalling internals.
  7. oh...good thinking... So you had a Tanfo with the "gen 2" trigger bar and installed the older version bar with BOLO into it? Installed with no problems? I might try going that route when PD gets more BOLO's in stock. For reliable DA, I have to use a 15# hammer spring with my cut BOLO as opposed to the setup I have now with the factory disco and 13# hammer spring. Maybe the stock geometry of the BOLO will fair better. After much training, factory trigger feel with polishing and lighter hammer spring isn't so bad tho...

    Tanfoglio mag floor plate broken

    Sorry, I already have 6 black ones installed on my mags. I could've clarified that better. Was just wondering if the BSPS orange floor plates fit with the henning basepads. I imagine they would, just looking for first hand experience.
  9. So the plastic locking floor plate in one of my Stock II magazines broke. Anyone had this happen to them, and if so how often? I'm deciding to get a new one +spares when I can justify making a parts order. I'm looking at the BSPS orange floor plates. Does anyone know if they will fit with the Henning production basepads? The BSPS website says they were designed for tanfo mags when used with the shockbottle basepads. Should I just stick with the factory tanfo floor plates? I appreciate any input.

Does anyone know if they will fit with the Henning production basepads that I already have installed? The BSPS website says they were designed for tanfo mags when used with the shockbottle basepads, but I imagine they would work with the hennings.

  11. Read a bunch, went down the rabbit hole and finally ponied up and bought a RCBS hand-primer. I got my primers seated in the 0.01" range. Loaded up some BBL's and they were 100% reliable with DA. Before the hand-primer tool, ignorant me just didn't know how deep primers could even go! Thanks for the schooling everybody.
  12. Thanks everybody for the input. After reading half of that Stock II Xtreme Mod list thread and the posts, it's all coming together now with the further detailed explanations.
  13. Hmm, after scouring through forums I take it it could be the primer depth. Maybe I'm not putting enough pressure (I go until it feels like it will crush) or the press is incapable. I reload for bolt and match rifle and never had this problem since I'm using fresh, consistent Lapua brass, but I guess reloading pistol is just another animal. I'll tinker with my press when I fly back home.
  14. So for clarification what could be at fault would be not deep enough primers or rubbing firing pin block? Because my S2 will fire off all my reloads in DA with my factory tanfo disco installed. My glock 17 will fire them all also. My primers are under flush, so they should be even deeper? I feel like I narrowed it down to the BOLO, but is there something still for me to learn that I'm not quite comprehending about the overall mechanics? I actually ended up shaving down my BOLO a little bit and from not firing any rounds from DA it now ignites about 16/20. Im going to use the stock disco for my match tomorrow but would like to get the BOLO reliable for the future.
