  1. I am happy to report that after ordering a set of tools from Amazon, I took the smallest one and gently ran it through the firing pin hole, turning it a couple of times and I was able to get the firing pin to pass the pencil test. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PPYWSCY/
  2. Ok. I ordered a small set of needle files, smallest diameter one is 1mm, so I'll go through and gently run it through the hole to clean it up. Wish me luck Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  3. I just got a slide back from coating and it appears that the firing pin hole dimension has changed, since the firing pin will not go fully in, so I can put the firing pin stop in. I tried a spare firing pin that I have in my box of extra parts, it goes in and the gun will go back together, but when I do the pencil test that Atlas Gunworks does https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gT5zm0bTQI the pencil will move but it doesn't fly out of the barrel completely. Any suggestions on how to fix?
  4. I had my main gun's slide crack while I had the backup gun's slide out for coating. I need a backup for the backup
  5. It's rated for 1200 cases per hour. It's a great little machine - I use it for all my 9mm and 40 brass, and I also rollsize my Dad's 45ACP brass for him. Highly recommend it.
  6. +1 to this. It's better to build and groom additional people to help the match that could step in later, instead of a mad scramble after someone burns out and just walks away.
  7. I understand that, but it lets other people off the hook. They get to squad with their buddies while the people who are certified RO's don't have that same luxury. It's the free rider problem. The obvious solution is more people need to volunteer to become certified RO's, but we all know how often that happens.
  8. From the MD's perspective, I understand how they want to balance all the squads and make sure that each squad has a certified RO. At the same time however, if you're a certified RO and it's a match that fills up in a couple minutes, and you want to squad with your friends, it sucks when you get pulled out of the squad with your friends and get put in a different squad.
  9. I'm loading ~8.1gr, 124 PD and small rifle primer, seating to ~1.165" oal - 172PF
  10. I had issues with brand new Xtreme brass where the primer pockets were too big and the primer would pop out and jam the gun up after firing.
  11. I spent ~$700 in parts and ~$800 in gunsmithing - but that was because the old slide had a breech face that wouldn't hold 9mm or 38SC - so I had to get a brand new slide and get work done. If it is just a replacement barrel, it would probably be ~$350 for barrel & comp and then barrel fitting fee ($150 to fit, then probably some money to chase threads for the comp) from Gans.
  12. Gansguns.com did some work for me recently. I'd recommend them. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  13. It's my patented "Field expedient fitting of a replacement charging handle before an Area Match by a desk jockey with a dremel and file" Ah, I also see that burr in the breech face. Hasn't hurt anything and i don't think I have a file or tool small enough to get there without marring anything else.
  14. I've used Federal small pistol primers and now CCI small rifle, probably about 20k rounds. 9 major. Some wear but nothing like that. Gun is dirty but i'm lazy. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  15. Open Major Alpha: 5 Charlie: 3 Time: 3.69 HF: 10.0271 I didn't call my shot on the first piece of steel and waited for it to fall, which probably killed at least .4 sec https://www.instagram.com/p/B0exB-Bg5ot/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet
