  1. +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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. I'm loading ~8.1gr, 124 PD and small rifle primer, seating to ~1.165" oal - 172PF
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Gansguns.com did some work for me recently. I'd recommend them. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. This was me all day yesterday. I recently replaced my aftec extractor spring, my MBX 170mm mag springs (but did not load them & unload them to break them in like the instructions from MBX say you should do, when you get one of their magazines). I'm hoping that replacing the recoil spring with a new one, checking all my brass to make sure they're not sticky/full of gunk, and also spraying the tubes of my magazines with a dry lubicrant w/ teflon will maybe fix the issues. Open can be very frustrating.
  12. I've gone through two spring caps recently. The first one lasted an entire year, and the second lasted about 2K rounds. If you break a spring cap for your aftec, consider also replacing the spring while you're rebuilding it. That's at least what I can think of why I had another cap break so quickly.
  13. I'm very happy with my mini rollsizer with DC motor that I purchased from Double Alpha. https://photos.app.goo.gl/8SXbnZu5VgYpYLiJ9
  14. @krow makes good stuff. I've got a couple of his followers for my gun and they've worked well.
  15. Part of that was because I had a lot of reliability issues with the 140mm caspian mags - compared to the MBX 170mm's that just worked. I've worked on tuning the 140mms to fix the issues so I can start running them.
