  1. With that info I'm glad I waited to order. Not falling free unless empty means they aren't of much use to me for practice and definitely of no use to me in a match.
  2. The mags just went live a little while ago and they have a 10% discount code available they sent with the e-mail announcement. I was excited about the 21rd mags but from the looks of the flat basepad we won't be able to attach any basepads to them and I'm weary of whether the glock basepads will clear an X5 magwell with the 17rd mags. The 21rd mags may still be useful for practice mags though, was hoping to add basepads to them though but that looks like it won't happen.
  3. I too am a bit worried about this. I plan on ordering 21rd mags and using glock +5/6 basepads and using them for practice only where the additional rounds per mag will be useful for getting more drills in without reloading mags. Another concern is using basepads on the 17rd mags with the X5 magwell. Once people do some experimenting to figure out which mag and basepad combos come to what lengths, then I'll order some to use for competition use.
  4. Asked ETS on a question about basepad compatibility on Arfcom and got this response. "Ok the short answer is that baseplates made for metal mags won’t work. To make poly mags we have to make an interface that is suitable for the material ie thicker.So our solution was to come up with a patent pending universal interface. All of our new 9mm mags take the same base plate. But to give you guys more aftermarket options we made this new interface so it would accept baseplates that fit glock mags. So if it fits a glock oem mag it will fit all of our mags. Plus, the new design is so strong that in drop testing our 30 round .45 mag never came apart even in 10ft drops on concrete. It was quite the violent impact. Poor mags Bottom line for you, the new sig 320 mags will work with glock baseplates."
  5. Rest your thumb on it and press/squeeze your thumb into it at a 45° angle. I noticed a pretty decent reduction in muzzle rise between pressing my thumb into it and resting my thumb next to it.
  6. There are 2 options, 1 with the grip weight and mag funnel, and 1 without those. The one without is cheaper.
  7. I watched that happen to a buddy at Blue Ridge last year, he ran all the way back through the stage to his range bag to grab his mag and then all the way back to the shooting position. Still didn't time out though.
  8. That is awesome to hear, I'm planning to pick up a couple of the 22rd mags and a couple of the 30rd mags when they start popping up online for sale. I'm really curious to what aftermarket base pads, if any, will fit on them. If the ones I get drop free easily and they take a basepad that will fit a 140mm gauge, then I'll pick up a few 17rd mags too for practice.
  9. So far it's looking pretty good, Farewell is 57th out of 425 in Open and Easter is 12th out of 88 in Standard. It's still really early on and I know not all of the stages have the same number of points but I believe both are in strong positions right now.
  10. I'm not sure what the results were but at Nationals a CRO let a round of birdshot loose into a dump barrel. From what I heard he was reassigned to a different stage and wasn't allowed to handle any guns for the rest of the match.
  11. I couple weeks ago I was shooting a local 3 gun match, got to a stage realized that after my last dry fire session I never removed my dummy rounds and just loaded live ammo over top of them. After the 3rd failure to fire I realized what I had done and swapped mags. I felt like an idiot, I immediately stripped all of the rounds out of the mags before the next stage and reloaded them completely with live ammo.
  12. Like another commented mentioned I'd just buy some +5 extensions, you'll most likely end up buying basepads for the 21rd mags anyways so might as well just buy extensions for the 17rd mags to get to 22rds, then grams follower kits to get 23rds.
  13. Is there anywhere with a list of the candidates for Pres and the Area directors? I can't seem to find a list anywhere. This is my first year so I don't know the process too well but I am surprised that USPSA doesn't have a candidate list anywhere, seems a little shady.
  14. There is nothing wrong with the Brownells lightweight bcg, I use an Aim Surplus lightweight bcg that is about the same price. I just looked over your list again, I would go with a much more aggressive comp, the one you have is more flash hider than comp imo. There are many great comps at a wide array of price points. As for yandguard, I would personally steer away from one with a flat bottom, it sounds good in theory that you can brace off of flat objects easier, but in 3 gun I very rarely have a flat surface to brace against, my of the things we can brace off of are at weird angles like Tank traps which a flat bottom would be a bit of a hindrance imo.
  15. Looks pretty good so far, only critiques I have are with the trigger. I'd lean more towards a si gle stage trigger for 3 gun, if you like Geissele look at the S3g trigger. as for the buffer weights, with the adjustable gas block I'd make the weights in the buffer system as light as possible, no need to add weight when you have the adjustable gas block.
