  1. Thanks for meeting up and letting me shoot! Forgot to ask, what size dot are you using? For the steel challenge, CGC wants us to use that Inceptor ammo. I recommend buying outside before then. They’re a little pricey in house. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I found this mount https://www.americandefensemanufacturing.com/view/product/923/ as I was hoping to use an offset slideride for 3 gun. But as HI5-0 stated, the c-more may not be rugged for hunting.
  3. Thank you for all the great info! I’ll give her a go and provide pics! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I think I'll try out PMM's ultra comp setup on my X-Five lower. Not sure how the shorter barrel will perform, but from their videos, there's very little muzzle rise. With 3gun, accuracy isn't as important. Thanks for the advice!
  5. sorry to bring up a post from a year ago, but Ghost now makes The One holster for a P320 X-5. I was looking at SJC's frame weight and thumb rest, but I need to look at DAA's thumb rest because I'm a lefty. If I ever hit the lottery, I'll let you know how it works out. Otherwise, it might be awhile before I can try it
  6. I’ll be shooting Open in 3 gun. From the sound of it, I’ll leave the factory barrel alone. The Bar-Sto ported barrel isn’t a huge hit on the wallet, so I’ll go that route and see how I like it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Hey everyone! Has anyone installed a Bar-Sto ported barrel on their X-Five? I'm looking to go that route instead of a comp for an open pistol. Bar Sto has a choice of 1, 2, or 3 ports. Just wondering if anyone has done it and what they recommend . Most of the porting I've seen on the web for other pistol brands has been 2 ports. Mag-na-port offers their autoport service on stock barrels. That may be a cheaper alternative. ~$145 Food for thought, Lone Wolf's 6 port design on Glocks might be interesting on an X-Five. The slide cutouts already provide placement. I may consider getting a Bar Sto 2 port barrel and ask if Mag-na-port can EDM port the interior part of the barrel inside of the slide cutouts. Maybe they could make the front 2 cutouts in the slide into one big one and cut 4 ports in the barrel to copy Lone Wolf's design. Although 4 interior ports on a 9mm might be too much porting. Maybe 2 interior ports might be better. Of course I'd have to put a weaker recoil spring or hotter ammo to cycle reliably. What do you guys think?
  8. Very creative solution on your camming plate, nice work! If you had a factory camming plate, I don't think the feed wheel actuator would reset. The top of the factory camming plate is even with the top of the shell plate base. Your idea for a feed column should work. The factory feed column has a switch at the top to stop the collator. You'll need to find a way to rig that switch, or manually shut off the collator. You can use the switch from an MBF dropper assembly. You can use the MBF output spring to feed your column, they use 2 sizes, large is for pistols (12mm ID), small for rifle (10mm ID). With MBF's output spring, you have a connection to the collator. If you want to use the tube bending spring, as long as the ID is 12mm, you should be fine. You just need to rig the connection to the collator. On a factory setup, if a bullet isn't seated, the incoming bullet jumps up in the column as the unused bullet rotates around the feed wheel. The column tolerance is pretty close to bullet diameter. That tolerance would prevent a jam by keeping all the incoming bullets inline as the unused bullet rotates around. Otherwise, I try not to let unused bullets rotate around. I'll answer your PM in a sec
  9. I’ll give it a try, thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Is it possible to buy the collator plate by itself? I’m looking for a .45 plate only. I’ve found everything else separately everywhere in the web, except the plate itself. I’ve seen the 3d printed bullet collators, but I’m more interested in a factory MBF plate. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Sounds like you’re missing a lot of parts. Do you have the correct seating die for the bullet you plan to use? It’s not the same diameter as a standard seating die. The GSI head for a super 1050 has a different height bullet feed wheel actuator (taller) than a RL 1050. I haven’t seen any RL heads for sale in the time I’ve invested. I don’t know for sure how the taller actuator would operate in a shorter stroke RL 1050. The feed wheel would activate earlier in the handle stroke, but there may not be enough release release to allow the feed wheel to reset for the next rotation. Trying to rig a feed column will take a lot of effort. Frankenstein-ing a MBF dropper tube might be the easiest solution. But if you get to that point, you might as well use the MBF as intended since you plan to use the MBF collator. Since GSI discontinued their feeder, they no longer support it in any way. (I’ve spent a long time trying) Getting parts would mean scavenging from a complete kit or finding someone selling spare parts (very rare lately) If you only have the head, you have a long way to go from getting it to run. I’ve spent a ton of money and over 2 years time to get to the point I’m at. Is it worth it? To me it is, it may not be to someone else. The MBF with a powder check/powder cop/lockout die and their 2-in-1 die would replicate a GSI with less hassle and more readily available parts. The only disadvantage is dealing with adjusting a 2-in-1 die. I’m not trying to discourage you from doing it. I’m just informing you that it won’t be an easy or cheap path.

  12. The RL1100 only swages on one side as the original 1050. The two sided swaging on the CP2000 allows the use of a primer pocket probe and case ejector to detect small & large primer pockets and still allow swaging in one pass.
  13. I had one on my MPX and the form and function was amazing. I was just wondering how anyone feels about their AR competition version. I'm looking to pick up one for an upcoming AR build. I can't imagine it being worse than their excellent MPX version.
  14. If you can fit a 5 gallon bucket, this would be the ticket. I used it in dry, 99º Colorado heat and it worked amazingly. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Arctic-Cove-18-Volt-Two-Speed-Misting-Bucket-Top-Fan-MBF0181/205744083
