Looks for Match

Looks for Match (2/11)

  1. Here is the final look you can paint the shim if you like.
  2. For those of you who like to mount a Romeo Max or XL on a S2 OR and find out is to big for it. You can mount it and spend just about $50 extra bucks. What you need: 2 CZ mounting plates for cmore/vortex razor 1 aluminum sheet of 1mm thickness 2 M3 x 12mm screws 2 M4 x 12mm screws Metal cutting scissors drill Metal file procedure: Make a template on the aluminum sheet using one of the CZ plates. Then cut it and use the metal file to get it to the right size and clean the edges. This will be use as a shim. Use the CZ plate again an align the aluminum shim under it, mark the location of the the screws. Use the drill and a bit that is a little thicker than the screws to make holes. You want passthrough holes for the screws. Mark the location of the pins and make those holes too. Install in the following order. CZ plate, aluminum shim, CZ plate, then m3 screws to slide. If you feel resistance in the screws, measure the distance and file that from the screws. Do this until you can secure the plates tight to the slide and the screws don’t pass beyond underneath the slide. Apply blue loctite, a good amount to the holes and screws. You don’t want this get loose. Then apply blue loctite to the plate holes for the sight screws and to the sight screws. Use the M4 screws and mount the sight. I let the loctite set in as per the instructions, 24hrs. Then I went to the range, shoot 200 rounds testing the setup and zeroing the sight. No brass hit the sight at any moment, worked flawlessly.
  3. I ordered it without realizing it didn't fit. The place I bought it from will only give me credit for it and had no other sights that interested me. The SRO was my second option. Raising it won't bother me that much as I'm moving from Open to CO. In Open the sight is always higher than the slide, so in terms of aiming I know what to expect. Can you share what happen to the ones that failed? How many of them?
  4. Ok, so I got the S2 OR and a Romeo 3 XL. I now know the XL doesn't fit the S2 OR plate cut as it is slightly longer. My questions are: 1) Is it possible to remove the iron sight and install a dovetail mount for the Romeo 3 XL? I don't know if dovetail mounts fit in the S2 OR dovetail. Guessing is a standard size but asking just in case is not. 2) Does anyone know if there is a custom plate made for the Romeo 3 XL to mount on S2 OR? Looking at the CMORE plate, all that needs to be done is make it 2-3mm thicker and move the optic screw holes and pins back 2mm. But it seems no parts manufacturer cares about making one. Maybe there is someone that does custom plates. The XL is so a nice I don't want to turn it down, would love to keep it.
  5. Looks good! is this a middle or large size? The comp looks very short.
  6. You are right about that. So, let me begin with one that is not listed here. I own a STI DVC Open. Have it for about 2 years and some extra months now. The good: The gun shoots nice, looks good, feels good in my hands. They removed some weight on these newest models, I'd rather preferred they had left the weight in. The bad: Extractor was problematic after 3 months. I bought an Aftec extractor for it. The original extractor was so bad that I only needed to push it with my index finger to take it out of the slide. After putting in the Aftec there were no more extraction problems. At about 8 months the sight (Cmore RTS2) electronics got damaged. No water damage or the sight being struck against anything. Just got crazy, dot turning off/on even when racking the slide. Cmore replaced it under warranty and they even said "no idea how it went bad". The Ugly: About 4 months ago the slide cracked on top from the front all the way back to the second port hole. Sent it to STI and they sent me a replacement gun. I had the silver/gold but they offered me the black version, unless I wanted to wait for 6+ months. So overall, the gun is good for the price. But since STI has stopped making these type of guns; I have decided to use this one for training and get me a real good Open gun. I've been thinking about the Atlas Chaos so far.
  7. I tested their limited pistol Nemesis, it was really good. I read some reviews from the Chaos which correlate what you said.
  8. There is no intention on getting anyone talk bad about a company. I rather like to see comments from current owners or people that have shoot them. What they liked and what they didn't.
  9. Why? And I ask because I have seen just a few shooters with Limcat pistols. Not saying there aren't many shooters with those pistols, is just my observation at different matches I have attended.
  10. Hi everyone! So, if you are looking for something reliable and with good performance, which of these three options will be better for an Open pistol? And, why? Atlas Gunworks Chaos Limcat Razorcat Bul Armory Bullesteros
  11. My DVC Open slide cracked about 2 weeks ago. Shipped out the gun for warranty service and they received it a week ago. Wondering how long it will take for me to get it back?!
  12. Well it seems that Carne is making lots of noise in the custom guns market. And the noise is from shooters not commercial advertising. The guns DO look great and I watched a video of an open gun and it looked like top end gunsmith work. Will keep this guns in mind. What about warranty? any experience with that?
  13. You are right about going with better quality. But some of us can only afford DVC quality. I wish I could get me a 7k open gun!
  14. I was looking at their fzbook page today. How good cost vs the others?
