  1. Take the barrel out, plunk test and spin a few rounds. See if the bullets are hitting the rifling. S2’s seem notorious for preferring ammo loaded on the shorter size.
  2. Did they call you? I submitted my order Wed morning. Hoping I have one on the way. Edit: Disregard. My order status is now cancelled as well.
  3. Same here. Went out of stock the other night, was able to order one the next morning. We’ll see I guess. Good thing I’m in no rush.
  4. Thanks for the pics @mxj23! OK MPX gurus... What say you? Is this enough to go on to determine if this version is a bona fide gen 3 as we all hope?
  5. Interested if this is the same as the PCC version without Timney trigger? For the price, seems hard to beat even adding a new trigger back into the price. Description on Cabelas says flash hider, but picture appears to show a brake.
  6. Has anybody heard if Springer Precision will be doing any black friday deals? I looked back at FB from last year, but didn’t see anything posted.
  7. It should absolutely work with the factory trigger. In my experience the Apex bar will reduce the take-up and give you a more crisp break. It may, however, add some weight to the trigger pull. The combo of the Apex bar and Apex enhanced trigger (or GG trigger) should yield you crisp break with a pull weight less than factory.
  8. Yes. I am still rocking (2) pre-upgrade X5’s. One has an Apex trigger bar and GG trigger. The other just has a GG trigger. I have used the Apex enhanced flat trigger as well and works 100%. I found the flat Apex trigger shoe would leave my finger aching after a match or practice session. Others use them with no issues. I simply prefer the GG trigger profile over the Apex.
  9. Check with a local lock and safe company. Sometimes they will take used safes on trade from jewelry stores and pawn shops. My safe came out of a pawn shop and is UL rated Class T-30 burglary. Cost 1/4 the price of new. Also allowed me to create my own interior with racks, shelves and lighting.
  10. Here are the results from yesterday as the fam wouldn't let me slip out to the range on Sunday: Acme 147gr FP 3.225gr Sport Pistol CCI 500 1.135 OAL 131.6 Avg PF Acme 147gr FP 3.30gr Sport Pistol CCI 500 1.135 OAL 134.1 Avg PF Acme 147gr FP 3.425gr Sport Pistol CCI 500 1.135 OAL 135.9 Avg PF Powder throw weights were an average of 4 measured throws. Sample size ranged from 11 to 24. The highest load showed the least variance at 1.51 STDEVA in power factor for a 2
  11. I'm running some ladder loads tomorrow for 147gr Acme FP's in my X5. I'll report back tomorrow on chrono and accuracy results.
  12. If you tighten the shellplate bolt does it get rid of the click? I noticed the same thing today on my press when the index pawl returns. I'm running a lightweight detent ball and shellplate bearing kit.
  13. I am currently rocking a pair of Columbia-Montrail Trans Alps FKT trail running shoes for my big hooves (15). They have good traction and relatively good cushioning without being overly squishy. My next pair will likely be Altra's due to the more natural toe box.
  14. When reassembling the used press I purchased, I mistakenly put a second spring under the index pawl. This obviously caused issues with indexing the shell plate. I had to run the bolt very loose due to the extra tension caused by the index pawl being oversprung. I think you're on the right track looking into the pawl spring and ring indexer.
