  1. The worst is if you work on lots of guns and then you find a mystery spring and can’t for the life of you figure out which gun it belongs to! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I held a comfortech stock up to the Franchi and determined that it can be made to work, but like the Benelli trigger guard, is slightly different dimensions and will look funky, and stick out in spots where it can potentially snag. Instead, I chopped my stock and installed a Limbsaver Airtech, and it seems like a comparable alternative to the comfortech but for much less money. I can find the model I used if needed, I think it was for the Beretta. It was so close that I just belt-sanded a few fractions of an inch off the part where it meets the stock, and it looks almost factory. No need for a grind-to-fit model Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I have the Defiant Stock 1 Small Frame with some upgrades from PD, and it blows away the Cajunized CZ SP-01 Shadow I used to have. I’m just not sure if I can fit a magwell on it. I really like the new rear slide serrations, functionally speaking. I also love the one-of-a-kind front and back strap enhancements they did on this model. I’m a little jealous of the bull barrel on the new Master models... but I LOVE this pistol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yup, great point. Benelli’s have a stupid long LOP. The Franchi is the same way also. It’s good to have them fit for LOP and POI by a professional, which adds more money. I just use a bandsaw and belt sander. I just put a new Limbsaver Airtech on my Affinity, and a good pad is definitely needed to soften the recoil on such a light shotgun. I do really like the Beretta Kickoff system also Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. You are saying that you have anecdotal evidence that lots more people are shooting Beretta over Benelli, and the only reason is because they are cheaper? Is there anything else you’d like to add to further explain? Also, I’m wondering if “all of your friends” who shoot Berettas are also Marines, making their choice of shotgun more meaningful than an ordinary civi, or if they’re not Marines but their choice of shotgun is more meaningful because they’re friends with you, and you are a Marine? Thanks for your help Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I have the NC Star, but I wanted this one lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Today only! This is an awesome bag, and for half off, is priced at Nc Star level. I would pick this up now if you are thinking of getting a new bag anytime soon https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1022231411?pid=909812 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Aw man, I hope they come through and if so, hope the magwell fits! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I got a notification about this today. The specs are very appealing, and I love the Beretta 92 in my hand. I do wonder how the new trigger system will be received. http://www.beretta.com/en/new-92X-performance/ Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Not bad at all! Is that your first time doing it yourself? I have done many things to my firearms but this still scares me. I wouldn’t go any more forward yet, you can always remove more later. Maybe polish it up and give it a go first Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks I was able to find an Odin 16” intermediate locally, so I think I will test it and then maybe sell my lightweight 16” middy to make up some of the cost if I’m happy with the reliability. The lighter barrel does get pretty hot quickly, so I think this will be a bit better for me if it works out Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Hey have you figured this out? I can’t find any info online about it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Yes, Walther has been doing the program for a long time now, but I bet they haven’t paid much at all. I recall checking over the various competition rosters last year and seeing maybe about 5% of competitive shooters, if that, were shooting Walther. Here’s the thing about Walther that shooters who transition over may soon discover: their aftermarket support has always been abysmal. For most of their guns you have one or two options for sights. Mags are expensive. Parts are not easy to come by, and there aren’t many shops that work on them. Obviously they are pushing harder now with this product, trying to reach out to competitive shooters. This could work “if” they get it together with the community and vendors for aftermarket support ( ala Glock and CZ). Will there be an ecosystem by which competitive shooters can get parts, customize guns, etc? That’s the big “if” here Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
