  1. Now that is clever. This is the kind of nerdy solutions I was hoping people would post. Thanks.
  2. Oh that's cool. I dig the magnets on the back too. Could tack it to the safe when not in use.
  3. This is interesting... https://www.midwayusa.com/product/1018131488?pid=296050
  4. I have a mag pouch that was a swag item from 2018 nationals that I use for Limited mags. Very similar to the CED. I tired SS mags in it. Same thing you described. Too tight to fit two per pouch. Thus, with one per pouch, the whole thing holds only 6 mags. That's a rather large carrier for only 6 SS mags. Again, not ideal.
  5. Yeah, it does have the big mag pockets in the upper compartment. I put two mags in each and they just flop around in there. Not ideal. I was hoping that someone else may have figured out a more secure option. If not, I may just end up using them after all.
  6. Hi all, I just got a sweet new Safariland backpack range bag. Overall I'm happy with it. However, there is no built in storage for 1911 magazines. What do all you Stinky Stack folks on here use to store mags in your range bag? Thanks, Beaker
  7. Thanks for the reply. I think I'll just order up some more Grams kits rather than try to mess with the new guts. Was hoping not to drop that coin, but I will do what I must.
  8. Negative. Let me elaborate. I have and old set of beat up STI gen 1 140mm mags with stock followers, springs, and base pads. The guts are not in the best of shape. When the price of gen 2 mags came down recently, I bought four. I also have four new grams FKS-11 kits. My plan is to take the guts out of the new gen 2 mags, install the grams kits in them, and then use them as my match mags. I was hoping that the brand new guts that came out of the gen 2 mags could be installed in the old gen 1 tubes to breath new life into them. They would make a good practice set.
  9. Hello all, Does anyone know if the newer STI gen 2 follower (.40 S&W) will work in the older STI gen 1 mag tubes?
  10. My club is looking to buy some quality USPSA legal falling steel targets. Besides MGM, anyone have a recommendation for where to get them? Would like to get a couple of quotes.
  11. I completed my NROI re-cert test this past weekend. Worked great. I enjoy the new site.
  12. Bingo! http://loadingdocksupply.com/extruded_dock_bumpers
  13. They do. But I could swear that I came across a cheaper parts retailer at some point. I will definitely get a quote from MGM. Just wondering if there are any other options.
  14. Anyone out there have a resource for replacement parts for poppers and maybe plate racks of the MGM persuasion? My club needs to replace some of the rubber bumpers on the back of our poppers. Plate rack plates are looking rough too. Budget is tight, but don't know where to start.
  15. Most recommend changing the firing pin spring whenever you change the recoil spring. Wolff springs are great. The extra power firing pin spring that comes with their recoil springs are perfect. The more important relationship is the recoil spring and mainspring. I typically recommend a Wolff 17# mainspring. Then you want the lightest recoil spring that will function 100%. Here is a chart from Dawson precision that is a good place to start for recoil spring weights.
