    DLC v. PVD v. Nitride for CZ CTS

    I have a CZ Custom CTS. I know the slide is blued. Not sure what coating the frame has. The more I read on all these different coatings the more I become unsure about what I want or what truly is best. I have a DLC finish on my Atlas Nemesis. Its really nice, smooth, and slick. Would it also be as smooth and slick for the CZ CTS or will it show imperfections in the frame? Same question applies to Nitride or PVD. I'd like to finish the entire gun to include the controls, hammer, and barrel. It has too have a very uniform/smooth finish. It needs to look better than it does now. Could a DLC or Nitride be done in the neighborhood of $150 and where do you folks recommend I send it too? Primary Machine has come up a lot in discussions.

    3rd Place Open Nationals

    Killer runs man. Great shooting and great video you put together. Thanks for sharing.
  3. Thank you chumly! I saw an eBay ad this morning. The 650 came out to $518 using the code with free shipping. Great deal. Also, the logic you guys use is for convincing a wife. Now I will have 2 650’s. #sixtybucksmatter
  4. I read the fine print on the Ebay 20%-25% and it's only 20% up to $100?
  5. Wondering if anyone knows of any Dillion 650 deals this Friday? Do they ever go on sale?
  6. There are plenty of good/great 2011's in the classifieds. If money is an issue (always is) don't break the bank on a $4-5k gun. I'm all about my Nemesis, but I don't think I'm any more accurate or faster with it than I was with my CZ. You might disagree, but I've been shooting USPSA for a bit over a year now and consistently improving. Hard to say if the gun really made a difference. I really don't think your current 2011 is holding you back. It's heavy, has a bull barrel, light trigger, and runs.

    Advanced Weapons Technology Builder's Class 2011??

    That’s really cool! I’d be real interested in hearing from folks who actually took a builders class or from those who built there own 1911/2011.

    Atlas titan or atlas nemesis???

    I went to the Nemesis from a CZC CTS .40. I would agree with Fox and others. The Nemesis or Titan is not going to affect your match performance when coming from a CZ. What is the price difference between a Nemesis and a Titan? $500? Plenty of folks here are top of their class with a “conventional” 2011. Either way I was new to the 2011 platform so it was going to take sometime growing into. For a guy that purchased a $2400 CTS over a $1,000 TS you’re spending an aweful amount of time sweating the price difference .

    Faster Trigger Finger?

    TS trigger freeze

    The reset “push” on those CZC flat triggers are not as positive as a factory TS trigger. It also doesn’t quite have the short reset like a good 2011 trigger would have. That’s my observation between a CZC CTS and a Atlas Nemesis 2011. I haven’t shot my CTS in awhile, but I did have to make a conscious effort to allow my trigger finger to travel just a bit more if not off the trigger any time I shot a bill drill. I still preferred the CZC trigger over the factory TS. Felt more precise and predictable.

    CZ Custom Mikro grips

    I have those Mikro grips on my CTS. Very grippy and similar texture to the PT Evo on my 2011. Henning and Lok make great grips too. Seems the Lok’s are the most popular. I still prefer the thin Mikro grips from CZC.

    Atlas titan or atlas nemesis???

    The extra price over a Titan? No question. Buy once, cry once. There are a few guys who can put together a worldclass 2011, but none that I’ve seen for a sight block gun.

    Atlas titan or atlas nemesis???

    I did. Been shooting with it since August.

    Atlas titan or atlas nemesis???

    Nemesis. I called about a Titan and got talked into the Nemesis. This was around February before most even knew about their sight block gun. I have not owned nor shot a Titan.

    Most realiable 2011 mags

    5 Gen 2 STI’s here. All TTI base pads tuned by Atlas. All run 100%. I like the idea of MBX and the success many others have had, but can’t complain about the Gen 2 STI’s from Atlas.
